  • "Lovely little cottage, very clean and provided everything we needed."

    ..and more! (Special facilities for my dog, including fluffy blanket, hairbrush, bowls, etc. we're a welcome surprise.). Parking not so good, but expected - after all, this is Whitby. Anyway, everything was within walking distance and bus connections were very reliable. Definitely recommend Pipit House and I hope to be back soon!

    Thanks so much for your positive feedback, it is much appreciated and we would love to have you back. Sarah Property Owner

  • "A very nice property on the outskirts of central Whitby."

    Pipit House was perfectly sized for 3 with 2 big bedrooms and full-size bathroom - views from main bedroom are excellent. Spotlessly clean throughout. Excellent value for BH week in August. Parking - there isn’t any at the property and to be honest not within a 5 min walk of property, but this is Whitby and known for lack of parking. Easiest way - park at the Abby.

    Many thanks for your positive feedback and we would welcome you back anytime - Sarah. Property Owner

  • "A great cottage, very clean and feels like home from home."

    Very stylish with everything you need for your holiday. Only downside is the parking, but you can’t have everything!!!

  • "We were expecting the slight challenges in dropping off the luggage and the steep staircase - the listing info was accurate."

    Understand the shared walkway to the cottage is not the owners's sole responsibility but it really is terrible, lined with tall weeds, very littered and generally extremely scruffy. Cottage itself was very clean, top floor beautiful. Some bathroom tiles getting a little mouldy. As a self catering cottage we were expecting to be able to sit at a dining table to eat but there were no chairs, and only 3 easy chairs so for families of 4 presumably someone would be sitting on the floor. The back garden was incredibly weedy, the garden furniture could do with rubbing down and re-treating - it just felt unloved and in need of a little TLC. The TV upstairs was not tuned in and we could only watch Netflix or similar. These are just some honest observations. The cottage is well-equipped, was clean, lovely bed linen and the top floor is great. It was good to note the owners had observed some of the visitors comments (yes we found the Prosecco glasses!)

    Thank you for your feedback. Pipit House has been booked up quite regularly this summer so when it is free again, we will be looking to address some of your points. The shared walkways are used by many surrounding properties and some people unfortunately do still litter. We'll be speaking to neighbours to see if there is anything that we can do about this. The garden furniture was painted earlier this year and again we will be addressing this and any weeds that seem to have flourished in the current weather at our earliest opportunity. We will also review the information in the property handbook as the downstairs TV allows terrestrial watching and the bedroom TVs are smart TVs for online watching only and we did think this was specified in the handbook. As the property is a traditional fisherman's cottage, space is limited but we're a family of 4 with 2 dogs and still find it very comfortable. There is a small fold out dining table in the living room with 4 folding chairs located in the under stairs cupboard with cushions for both the dining chairs and outside furniture - again we'll ensure this is specified in the handbook. We hope you enjoyed your stay and welcome you back anytime - Sarah. Property Owner

    It was a long way to get luggage to cottage Outside steps where very worn Railings outside cottage missing The actual cottage was beautiful The Garden was nice and enclosed All in all a lovely stay

    Many thanks for your feedback, we will take this on board and try to address some of the points you have mentioned. Some unfortunately, are outside of our control due to shared access with surrounding properties. So happy you enjoyed your stay and welcome you back anytime. Sarah Property Owner

  • "Comfortable little house but the stairs are very steep."

    Plus, with no car access it's hard work bringing the luggage up

    We appreciate your feedback and fully understand the points that you have highlighted. With the property being an old fisherman's cottage, cars and access unfortunately was probably not the highest priority in the 1800s, which we've found to be similar for other places in Whitby but on a plus, feel it does add to the character. We're glad you found the house comfortable and welcome you back anytime. Sarah Property Owner

  • "Had a really great stay at the property."

    the location was excellent with it only being a short walk away from the town centre and local amenities. the cottage was clean and homely and the view from the top bedroom was brilliant. there was tea/coffee/sugar/milk and a pack of biscuits which was a nice touch!

    Thank you for your positive feedback, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. The view from the bedroom is fantastic, glad you appreciated it. You are welcome back anytime :-) Sarah Property Owner

The property

Pipit House is a traditional fisherman's cottage resting within the bustling coastal town of Whitby North Yorkshire, whilst still enjoying a quiet position tucked away from the seaside amusements.

Set over three floors, this dog-friendly, charming home offers the ideal base for families or groups of four looking for a coastal break.

Well-located to a whole host of attractions, eateries, shops, and the beach, Pitpit House delivers an open-plan living space with private front courtyard and rear decked terrace, with outdoor seating.

The living space, features homely interiors, a woodburning stove, original beamed ceilings, and a well-equipped kitchen.

After long summer walks or brisk winter strolls, head upstairs to the first floor and indulge in a deep soak in the free-standing bath, or opt for a refreshing shower, before heading to either the twin bedroom, or the super-king-size (zip/link), located on the second-floor with stunning elevated views across the marina and estuary.

Within minutes, walk to the centre of Whitby to experience many of its wonderful sites, where you can climb the 199 steps up to St Mary’s Church and take in the commanding views of the coast below, before continuing to the eerie ruins of Whitby Abbey and its 7th century structure and discover the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Begin your descent back down the steps and cross Whitby Bridge to see the famous Whalebone Arch, or, as it’s just a short walk away from your cottage, dig your toes into the golden sands of Whitby Beach as you stroll across to Sandsend for a delectable lunch at one of the many beachfront cafes; be sure to join the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast walking trail, including The Cinder Track for the best views.

Continue your adventure to Scarborough, with the chance to visit SEA LIFE Scarborough, Peasholm Park, and the bustling harbour, and the possible opportunity to watch one of many events hosted at Scarborough Open Air Theatre, before travelling into the county to stock up on your local knowledge at Beck Isle Museum and North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Pipit House is the perfect place to spend your next holiday to North Yorkshire with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

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.
