  • "Absolutely stunning cottage."

    Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable and welcoming. Perfect location for exploring Whitby by foot. Finding it hard to find any fault with Sailors Cottage. Only downside which is minor, no wifi. Will definitely be coming back. If you’re considering this place book it now. Lovely cake for your arrival as well as milk, tea and coffee.

    Thank you for your lovely review. You are welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "The property is ideal for 4 people the stairs can be a bit of challenge and a few extra plates wouldn’t go amiss."

    It is in a good location however, like a lot of properties in Whitby the lack of off street parking is a deterrence but in general we enjoyed our stay in Whitby and the cottage.

The property

Directly overlooking picturesque Whitby Harbour in North Yorkshire, Sailors Cottage is more than 200 years old and offers guests traditional accommodation which is well presented, in a great location for exploring Whitby and beyond.

Ideal for a small family on holiday or couples travelling together, the property is compact but has everything needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.

On the ground-floor, there is a welcoming living/dining room complete with a sofa, a dining table with views over the harbour and a stylish woodburning stove-effect gas fire, where you can imagine curling up together, getting warm in the cooler months and really enjoying spending time together.

A few steps up from this space is the galley kitchen which has an oven, microwave and fridge/freezer, so you can whip up delicious food for your party before taking a seat at the elegant dining table.

Upstairs on the first-floor is the inviting sitting room which has an attractive sofa, another woodburning stove-effect gas fire and a Smart TV, creating a space you’ll be dying to get comfy in whether it’s to zone out and watch your favourite TV programmes together or to catch up on each other’s holiday stories.

When it’s time to bed, there is a well-presented double on the first-floor or take the winding staircase up to the top floor, where tucked into the eaves is a delightful twin bedroom with wonderful, elevated views of the harbour.

A family shower room completes the accommodation.

In the morning, you’ll hear the sounds of the harbour nearby and you’ll be raring to go, so why not start the day with a stroll around Whitby harbour before heading into town?

Whitby has loads to offer visitors from beaches, a lighthouse, a good selection of shops and eateries, the famous Whitby Abbey, the 199 steps plus the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, which is a must-visit when you are in the town.

Jump in the car and head down the coast for a scenic drive to towns such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough, Filey and Ravenscar, all worth a visit in their own right.

Family attractions within easy reach of Whitby include Flamingo Land, the National Railway Museum, York Minster, Monk Farm Visitor Centre and Sea Life Scarborough.

Lace up your walking boots and head out into the North York Moors National Park for some exercise and fresh air and be rewarded with some breath-taking scenery along the way.

For an authentic cottage stay in the heart of vibrant Whitby, book a break at Sailors Cottage.

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.
