    “The cottage is perfect.”

    We’ve stayed here before and will definitely book again. The terrace is wonderful and the accommodation is spacious and comfortable. Great location too - off a main street but very quiet. The helpline was answered quickly and the gentleman was very genuine and helpful.

The property

A gorgeous Georgian cottage, centrally located within easy walking distance of Whitby town centre and waterfront.

Survey the picturesque pan-tiled rooftops of the town, as well as the harbour and rugged Abbey from your delightful roof terrace.

Children will love the games room on the lower ground floor, a great space to chill out after active days at the beach. Awarded 5 Star rating with Visit Britain/Quality in Tourism, this is a quality three bedroom period cottage, refurbished to the highest standards.

Its immaculate, stylish décor has featured in the Yorkshire Post and Your Home magazine.

Families and couples will appreciate its convenient West Cliff location, close to the beach, restaurants, grocery shops and Whitby’s delightful waterfront.

It is the perfect home from home and much-loved by guests who return year after year. The entrance porch leads to a good-sized sitting room with solid wood floors, comfortable seating and an attractive brick fireplace with homely woodburning stove.

A flat screen TV/Blu-ray DVD player, iPod docking station and Technics Hi-Fi system provide great entertainment, or simply chat and relax in this welcoming space.

Stairs descend to the lower ground floor to a playroom with another TV plus an Xbox – perfect for keeping the kids entertained.

There’s also a handy tumble dryer in the basement.

The stylish fully-equipped kitchen with dining area makes a pleasant place to enjoy a meal together or perhaps play a board game and chat as you keep the cook company!

There’s a lovely view over the town.

Quality wood work surfaces and characterful built-in benches, coupled with the tasteful coastal-inspired colours, give the kitchen a relaxed feel. On the first floor is a superb king-size bedroom with built-in wardrobes and views overlooking the town; there is also a triple bedroom with lovely duck-egg blue decor and a stylish beach theme, with full-size solid wood bunks and a single bed.

The smart house bathroom incorporates a bath with shower over, basin, WC and heated towel rail. Moving upstairs to the second floor, a master double with king-size bed boasts wonderful views of Whitby Abbey.

Open the electric blind at the touch of a button.

There’s also an iPod dock alarm for your convenience.

The luxury en-suite shower room with shower, basin and WC leads to a decked roof terrace with fabulous views.

It comes equipped with furniture, including deckchairs, so that you can enjoy a glass of pre-dinner fizz as you watch the sun set – divine! Outside is also a small courtyard that houses the wood storage and deckchairs. The property is conveniently located for all the town centre attractions and visitors should check out the beach, award-winning restaurants and picturesque ‘old town.’ If you’re feeling brave, head for The Dracula Experience and learn how Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker’s Gothic masterpiece.

199 steps lead up to the Abbey and nearby St Mary’s church – the climb is definitely worth it for the spectacular views. Nearby fishing villages such as Staithes, Robin Hood’s Bay and Runswick Bay are so pretty and the coastal walks along much of the heritage coast are sublime. Your stay at Rooftops Cottage is sure to be full of memorable moments and great days out, there is so much to see in this beautiful part of the UK.

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 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 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.
