Whitby 1 mile.
A lovely modern end-mews property, in a small development of holiday homes on the edge of the seaside town of Whitby.
Well placed for exploring both this historic port and the stunning North York Moors, the cottage is in an elevated position above the banks of the River Esk, with gorgeous views from the back over open countryside and distant hills.
Inside, it has a spacious and comfortable sitting room, with wooden floors and a bright and cheerful feel.
An archway leads to a contemporary, tiled kitchen, which is well equipped and has a dining area to one end.
There are patio doors from the kitchen, opening onto a small, private decked area - a tranquil spot in which to sit and relax in the sunshine.
Upstairs, the double bedroom has a private balcony overlooking the viaduct and the railway, where you can watch steam trains puffing their way into Whitby station.
Communal grounds lead down to the river, a haven for wildlife, with seals regularly spotted, along with birds, ducks and swans.
It is an easy walk into Whitby, with its quaint, cobbled alleyways, long, sandy beaches and picturesque harbour.
A climb up the 199 steps is well worth the effort, to visit the famous Whitby Abbey and enjoy the breathtaking cliff top views.
Whitby provides plenty of choice of excellent restaurants and traditional tea rooms, from renowned fish and chips to oysters in one of the trendy harbourside bars!
There are many attractions in this beautiful area, including pretty coastal villages such as Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes, the Danby Moors Centre with its exhibitions and a trip to Goathland - known as 'Aidensfield' from Heartbeat.
A must is a ride on the North York Moors Steam Railway from Grosmont, through beautiful moorland countryside to the pretty market town of Pickering.
An excellent property providing a good base any time of the year.
