  • “A nice cottage which would be even nicer with a few improvements.”

    As stated in a previous review, the boiler is incredibly noisy and we had to turn the heating off at night or it would have kept us awake. This wasn't too much of an issue as it wasn't cold but I can imagine it would be a problem during a cold spell. The cottage is mostly well equipped, the decoration stylish and the beds comfortable. It is let down however by the strange layout of the kitchen. This is a very large room for a smallish cottage and could easily have accommodated a dishwasher and ...

    As stated in a previous review, the boiler is incredibly noisy and we had to turn the heating off at night or it would have kept us awake. This wasn't too much of an issue as it wasn't cold but I can imagine it would be a problem during a cold spell. The cottage is mostly well equipped, the decoration stylish and the beds comfortable. It is let down however by the strange layout of the kitchen. This is a very large room for a smallish cottage and could easily have accommodated a dishwasher and good-size fridge/freezer. Instead, there is a whole bank of empty ktichen units on the far side, with a tiny stand-alone freezer on the counter-top and a small fridge underneath, with no dishwasher. It would also have been nice to have a wifi connection.

The property

Mews Cottage is a charming period property located off Whitby’s prestigious St Hilda’s Terrace, near the lovely Pannett Park. The cottage benefits from its own private parking, a real boon in the centre of town.

It is finished to a very high standard, offering spacious accommodation for five people.

A ground floor bedroom and bathroom are a real advantage for visitors with mobility issues. Park your car immediately in front of the cottage and enter the hallway which leads to a light and welcoming sitting room with views over the town towards the harbour.

Relax on the comfortable sofas and, in a quieter moment, borrow a book from the small library.

There’s also a TV/DVD for entertainment at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

A dining area completes the space. Double doors link the dining area to a large kitchen, fitted with stylish contemporary units.

The ground floor also has a pleasing single bedroom, decorated in sunny shades, plus a bathroom with a bath, shower over, basin and WC. Moving upstairs, a beautiful king-size double bedroom with en-suite shower room awaits.

The décor is so restful and organic: willow-patterned fabrics, a real wood floor and exposed beams, with a lovely easy chair and lamps for reading.

Wake up to views over to the harbour. Across the landing, there is a twin bedroom, tastefully decorated in lavender hues, also boasting long-reaching views towards the town and harbour.

Wooden flooring and an original (decorative) fireplace add old-world charm. To the outside is a small area with seating.

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a coffee and breathe in that lovely seaside air – instant rejuvenation! A short stroll and you are right in the heart of the thriving harbour, with bustling restaurants, cafes and bars which line the waterfront.

Rest a while and watch the world go by as pretty boats depart for the heritage coast and children drop their crabbing lines into the River Esk.

It’s a wonderful atmosphere. The Yorkshire coast is a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, quaint fishing villages, peaceful bays and miles of long sandy beaches.

Robin Hood’s Bay is a fossil hunter’s paradise and the village, with its maze of cobbled streets leading down to the beach, is picture-perfect.

Further south, Bempton Cliffs are home to nearly half a million seabirds, including puffins, making this stretch of coastline the UK’s largest mainland seabird colony. With so much to see and do, one visit may not be enough.

Mews Cottage is a homely and refined base from which to explore this stunning part of the UK.

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 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.
