  • “Generally all was fine, but the back garden/yard was considerably smaller than I expected.”

    You can BBQ, but there’s no room to eat outside. However, the hot tub was very welcome to come back to after a long walk.

The property

A spacious cottage in historic Whitby, within easy walking distance of a sandy beach, shops, restaurants and thriving harbour.

What a treat – this property boasts a hot tub and outside space!

A fun and wonderfully relaxing way to unwind together at the end of a day’s sightseeing. The interior is smart and furnished to a high standard.

With three bedrooms, there’s plenty of room here for a large family or couples’ getaway.

Easily accessible by car, train or on foot and with on-street parking available outside the property, Linskill is a real gem of a place.

It is also a house with literary heritage, having belonged to Whitby-born author Mary Linskill whose writing features depictions of Yorkshire’s stunning landscapes and scenery. The house opens to a welcoming reception hall, from which leads the sitting room with open fire and superb feature fireplace – so cosy in the cooler months, especially after a bracing coastal walk.

Snuggle up, listen to some vinyl from the house collection and feel the stresses of everyday life slip away!

There’s also a TV, DVD, CD and selection of books to help you unwind in the quieter moments. Step into the kitchen and you’ll be impressed by the large range cooker and dining area with doors that lead outside.

This is a fantastic space for informal dining, chatting to the cook, or simply enjoying your favourite pre-dinner tipple – in summer, it’s so handy for the BBQ. A shower room with shower, basin and WC completes the ground floor. Make your way upstairs to discover three lovely bedrooms.

Firstly, a large master bedroom with king size bed, TV, wardrobe and dressing table, plus an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, basin and WC. A second double bedroom with TV offers a comfortable brass bed with cheery soft furnishings.

Finally, the twin room has two full size single beds and is decorated with tranquil accents of duck egg blue. The house bathroom is stylish, with a deep, free-standing bath – don’t forget to bring your favourite bubble bath and champagne for ultimate relaxation!

There’s also much to enjoy outdoors.

The pleasant courtyard garden features a wonderful hot tub and BBQ. This delightful Whitby cottage is within a short walking distance of Whitby town centre.

On the way, call off at nearby Pannett Park – the kids will love the playground – for a leisurely stroll through well-maintained gardens and onto Whitby Museum and Art Gallery.

Or, for something completely different, brave The Dracula Experience and learn how Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker’s gothic masterpiece. A day trip on a traditional steam locomotive from Whitby to Grosmont and on to Pickering takes you through the glorious North Yorkshire Moors – an unforgettable experience.

These stunning landscapes are a walker’s paradise, especially in summer when the moors are clad in swathes of purple heather.

Stay at Linskill cottage and, like its former owner Mary Linskill, you too are sure to fall in love with Whitby and its splendid environs.

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 abundance of activity 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 every interest and time of year. 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. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in 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.
