  • "We had a wonderful stay at Harbour Walk."

    The location was extremely convenient to walk into Whitby whilst being on a very quiet street. The house was clean, well maintained and comfortable - even a little bigger than it looked on the pictures. Parking was a bonus for Whitby. Thanks for a great trip.

    It was the best accommodation that we have ever stayed in. The property was immaculate and so well equipped with everything, it even had a washing machine and dishwasher. We will certainly book this property again and would recommend it to all. It was located centrally with the added bonus of off street parking, which saved a fortune in parking fees. We will be back. Thank you.

    Went for pet friendly on advert surprised when we arrived note left as you walked in no pets allowed on furniture or bed not total et friendly apart from that very pleased with property and location

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately guests in the past have allowed wet and dirty dogs on the beds and sofa. We want to keep standards of the cottage very high so we just ask guests to be considerate. Most holiday rentals ask for pets to be kept off the soft furnishings. Property Owner

    Very nicely laid out and with comfortable furnishings. Great views of the harbour and Whitby town and Abbey. Only a short walk to town and bus and train stations, so we had no need to use the car. The added bonus of a free parking space was a big help. We would definitely return to Harbour Walk. The owners were very helpful providing good useful information, making it a delightful stay.

    Good central location and allocated parking is a bonus. Facilities provided were excellent, beds lovely and comfy. Only vert minor issue Netflix account locked so unable to use Netflix (couldn’t log off to log in on my account either) and TV in bedroom wasn’t receiving any signal. This didn’t detract from a lovely property at all.

    Glad you had a lovely stay. Sorry you had issues with Netflix it needs a password which is in the welcome book. The downstairs TV is back up a running a cable had been removed from the back of the TV. Property Owner

    Also had parking which is very rare in whitby. Steam trains running directly behind the garden which was amazing, we weren't bothered at all by the other trains they don't run that often and not at all through the night.

    It’s very well equipped and spotlessly clean, has a well planned interior - we particularly enjoyed the living, dining, kitchen room on the upper floor from where there are good views over the river and the distant abbey. ruins and the steam locos puffing by the end of the garden. The cottage is conveniently located near the harbour and the off road parking is invaluable.

  • "Harbour Walk is ideal for a holiday in the area, plenty to see and do."

    We stayed in January as a couple, with two dogs. Few minutes walk to the town centre and everything on offer in the way of food and drink and some retail therapy! Everything is provided you could need plus welcome pack, spotlessly clean and comfy bed(s). Being next to the railway line is not really an issue, as the line isn't exactly the busiest, though may be more so in the summer months, unfortunately, no steam trains whilst we were there. Having stayed in Whitby a few times, you realise the importance of the parking space and the garden, though small, great great for the dogs. Would definitely use again!

    Really well thought out and beautifully equipped. Everything you could need for a holiday. Very comfy beds and fabulous access to the steam trains, our Grandson loved the trains and waved everyday. Whitby is thriving with lots of new businesses popping up so a great holiday was had by all. Parking is a godsend in Whitby so we were able to just leave the car and walk everywhere. There is a lip where the access to the car space is, (the pavement has sunk) so a fully loaded saloon car may well scrape this. Not the cottage owners fault but will need attention from the council. Loved Harbour Walk and of course we will be back.

The property

This bright and modern terraced property is situated in a quiet location in the popular, historic fishing port of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast.

With lots of amenities and a choice of sandy beaches just a few minutes' walk away, Harbour Walk provides the perfect base for families or a couple to enjoy a traditional seaside holiday.

In a central location with views across the harbour and estuary and onwards to Whitby abbey.

Offering unusual reverse-level accommodation, off-street parking can be found on the upper-ground-floor level, where a private gated area leads to the cottage.

Upon entering the property, you will find a bright and airy, open-plan living area with pleasant views towards the harbour and over the railway.

The sitting room has a choice of two sofas to settle down onto, whilst watching the wall-mounted TV, one of the sofas even has a pull out bed, which can be utilised if required.

The compact but practical kitchen has all of the necessary appliances to put together delicious family meals, which can be enjoyed around the wooden dining table, with enough seating for the whole group.

The two bedrooms are on the ground floor, offering luxury bedding and towels, with the king-size room opening onto a sunny, front patio where you can sit and relax, watching the steam trains trundling by as they approach the station, while the second twin bedroom is perfect for all ages.

With the added benefit of private parking, rarely found in Whitby, this fabulous cottage is an ideal holiday home; stroll into the hustle and bustle of this delightful resort and discover an excellent choice of pubs, restaurants, independent shops and cafés, with its quaint cobbled market place, narrow ginnels and beautiful harbour all waiting to be explored.

Children will delight in the long, sandy beaches, complete with donkey rides and brightly painted beach huts, whilst the seafront Spa Pavilion Theatre hosts shows and films throughout the main season.

The main attractions in the town include the open top tour bus, whale watching boat trips, Captain Cook's Museum, evening ghost walks and lovely floral displays at Pannett Park.

Venture along the coast in either direction and find pretty market towns like Pickering and Helmsley and coastal villages such as Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay, whilst a ride on the Heritage Steam Railway that winds its way through heather-clad moorland to Pickering is a must.

With the beautiful countryside of the North York Moors to discover, guests will want to return again and again to this charming Whitby property.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
