  • "We were very pleased with the cottage."

    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!

    The house was immaculately clean and well fitted out with requirements to ensure a pleasant stay. Ruth was very helpful and contacted us to let us know that there had been no previous occupancy so we could check in earlier and the same when we left. We will definitely be visiting again - loved it !

  • "Lovely cottage in quiet street but still near the beach and harbour."

    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.

  • "It was a lovely cottage in every way but the beds need new mattresses."

    Also the parking bay is very steep and and there is a ledge at the top of the bay with a grid and if your car is a bit low you could damage the underside, when possible we we were parking across the road. But it is within walking distance to town and was very clean and modern.

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay. New beds are on order and will be delivered in December. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a very good spot for visiting the town and sea on foot, plus has good road and public transport links to other places to visit nearby."

    You get a really good view of the vintage railway, which is exciting when 'steam engines' are being used. The garden is quiet and a good place to rest after a busy day. There was a very welcome and unexpected greetings pack of tea, coffee and milk plus chocolate, biscuits and crisps and a bottle of wine. I would thoroughly recommend this for a comfortable holiday.

  • "The cottage was lovely and very well presented."

    The only thing I would mention is that we found the mattresses to be too firm - a personal observation really, because we would usually prefer a slightly softer bed. It would not prevent us from re-booking or recommending it to others.

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.
