  • "We had a fabulous short stay at Heron’s Landing."

    The apartment is beautifully presented. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely property and the welcome tray was a welcome surprise!

  • "Property was extremely comfortable, tastefully furnished and ideally situated overlooking the river."

    We were very impressed. The only things we missed were a small frying pan and pasta bowls. Also the option of lighter duvets would have been appreciated. We did find locating and accessing the keys a little tricky (we were not the only ones) but that is down to the building itself, not to Herons Landing.

    The apartment had everything you could possibly want and more besides. Tastefully decorated and fully equipped. The tea and coffee tray, local biscuits and bottle of Prosecco were a thoughtful and lovely surprise!

  • "This is a first class, fabulous, holiday home."

    Everything was perfect, clean, comfortable, modern, quality and so handy to stroll into town. It was quiet and the underground parking and lift were a wonderful bonus. We would happily recommend it to anyone.

The property

Settled within the beautiful development of Whitehall Landing you will find this gorgeous second-floor apartment Herons Landing, just a short walk along the harbourside from the cobbled streets of the old town.

Idyllically positioned over looking the tranquil waters of the River Esk with views of the boatyard and railway beyond․ In the summer months you will see the old steam trains pulling into Whitby Station․ At low tide the Heron can be seen fishing along the river bank with a host of other sea birds․ Herons Landing is the perfect retreat for couples or up to 4 people to explore the delights of this sought after area․ There is secure allocated undercroft parking (bay 16) where you can access the building via the lift making unloading an easy task. The interior has been tastefully presented with quality furnishings, offering an open-plan living space featuring a well-appointed kitchen so you can rustle up hearty dinners and light lunches.

Take a seat at the dining table and toast to much-needed break with your nearest and dearest before settling down on the sofa and browsing the Smart TV for your favourite series.

Move to the bedrooms to catch some sleep, with two king-size rooms to choose from, serviced by a gleaming shower room.

When it comes to planning your holiday itinerary, there’s so much to do in the heart of Whitby; browse a wealth of independent shops, head to the shores of Whitby Beach for a paddle in the sea, climb the mighty 199 steps to Whitby Abbey and take a guided tour at the Dracula Experience.

After building up appetite, there’s plenty of quality restaurants and pubs to curb your cravings, including Cosa Nostra, Rusty Shears and a short drive to Newholm Tea Rooms for some homemade food.

A scenic drive along the Scarborough road is Ravenscar home to a growing colony of common and grey seals․ Continue on to Scarborough home to the SEA LIFE centre making it a favourite with marine and animal lovers alike.

Lace up those walking boots and tackle the scenic splendour of the North York Moors National Park, crossing the rolling hills and passing through natural beauty including Mallyan Spout Waterfall, the North Yorkshire Moors Railways, Beck Hole or the beautiful Mulgrave Estate where the ruins of Mulgrave Castle can be found․ Alternatively if the coast is more your cup of tea, a coastal walk from the Abbey along the Cleveland Way to picturesque Robin Hoods Bay is a real treat.

Escape to Heron's Landing and enjoy a break in this bustling region of North Yorkshire.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an array of activities so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for everyone. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
