  • "The Cottage was beautiful and very well equipped and maintained."

    There was everything that you could wish for, even the Hot Tub. It’s also very well placed for access to Whitby itself with a short walk into the Town centre. The addition of the electrical charging in the garage was also a bonus. We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "Gorgeous property within walking distance of the town centre."

    Very warm, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We only used the hot tub once due to the freezing temperatures over the weekend we were there, otherwise I’m sure we would have made better use of it. Having the big garage and one parking bay was a definite plus point. Would definitely stay again.

    Only other issue was the early check out of 9.

    It’s an easy walk to Whitby centre (about 5 to 10 minutes), it’s a beautiful property and the hot tub was spot on. We will definitely return and recommend to friends and family

    Fabulous to have parking, garage and patio in Whitby. Only short walk to all amenities. Upstairs tight for space and did not have the same wow factor as the rest of the property. Hot tub dated. That said we would highly recommend a week here.

    Thanks for your feedback. We have had a hot tub cover on back order for a while and it has finally arrived and been replaced. We are pleased you would recommend Saltbay. Many thanks Property Owner

  • "Pros: What a lovely property."

    Spotless; everything was provided that you would need for a stress free holiday (good quality too). Short walk to town centre and friendly local shops, pubs and takeaway. Cons: Be aware; they like their steep stairs in Yorkshire :-) . Also; we went with 2 teenage boys, so perhaps a bit small for that. No kitchen door meant noise travelled. Overall: despite the small personal observations, we had a great time and would return.

    Outside sun trap with seating and hot tub a great bonus after all the walking. Car parking a real bonus for Whitby and on the quieter side of town. Maintenance called for a battery change in the smoke detector turned up within 15mins. the only one thing I would recommend would be a hand rail on the stairs, I didn't realise until I needed it after stiffening up after a really long walk. Will certainly return

  • "The property is in a great location, just a short walk to Whitby town centre."

    The garage & additional parking are invaluable in a busy seaside town. The house is modern, warm, clean, comfortable & stylish. There was a very generous welcome tray awaiting us! The outdoor terrace is secure for a small dog & in summer it must be lovely to sit out. We didn’t use the hot tub, but I’m sure it’d appeal to many people. I have recommended this luxury accommodation to friends (it appears most of the houses in Hogarth’s Yard are available for holiday rental). We had a lovely time exploring North Yorkshire in unseasonably good weather.

    Approx 10 flat walk to the centre. The extra touches like the robes and slippers as well as the welcome pack,including the thoughtful milk in the fridge to enjoy a much needed cuppa after a 5 hour drive. The bed was so comfortable and the showers sublime. The kitchen was fully fitted with quality products,the outside space we couldn’t really enjoy as the weather wasn’t kind but that’s what the weather does..many places to enjoy meals and drinks. Highly recommend this space if you enjoy that touch of luxury which we all deserve on holiday yes?

Communication excellent with owners.

  • "Couldn’t use the front door as the water settles outside the door."

    When we arrived there was a nasty drain smell from the shower in the en-suite bathroom & also dirty marks on our duvet cover.

    Thank you for you feedback, it is vital we receive feedback so we can rectify and improve. If I may respond to your comments. It’s unfortunate to hear you were unable to use the front door due to a puddle. This is a new build property and clearly this should not be happening. We shall investigate and add drainage if needed. Glad you were able to use the other doors to gain access to the property. You did call us to report the smell in the bathroom, you told us it was the back bathroom. We did offered to call a plumber straight away of which you politely declined. We have since investigate and are unable to find a problem. We have in the past had a slight issue with a smell in the en-suite, this is due to the shower plug sometimes not sealing correctly if stepped on and as a result allowing smell to pass through the trap. it’s a poor design and our plumber is currently looking for a suitable replacement, however once the plug is correctly seated again the smell disappears. With regards the dirty marks on the duvet cover, I am sorry for this. We contract out our cleaning and have our bedding professionally cleaned to stop this happening. We have since replaced the duvet in question and amended our process. Once again you did call us to report this and we offered to change this immediately of which you declined. We are very pleased you had a lovely stay and we hope to welcome you again in the near future. Property Owner

The property

Settled on the southern side of the River Esk and just a five minute walk to the bustling town centre of Whitby is this contemporary end-terrace, Salt Bay.

Positioned perfectly for a fun-filled stay in this popular seaside resort, within walking distance of all the main attractions and amenities, Salt Bay is an ideal choice for a family or group of four.

On entering the property up several steps, be welcomed into the stylish living/dining room where large sofas invite you to relax before the Smart TV after a busy day, or settle around the dining table to plan out the next day's adventures.

A door to the handy cloakroom can be found here, offering a handy room where you can avoid any bathroom queues, whilst the opposite direction brings you into the beautiful kitchen where a large kitchen island takes centre stage, and an array of appliances amidst the sleek units offer all you need for rustling up delicious dishes.

In the warmer months open up the bi-folding doors to the enclosed patio and relish the sunshine, bringing the outside in, with outdoor seating for alfresco dining, as well as enjoying a glass of bubbly in the luxurious hot tub which comfortably fits four people.

Head upstairs to find the lovely bedrooms, consisting of a master king-size room featuring a beautiful en-suite shower room, and a twin bedroom, each with fresh, stylish decoration and plenty of storage for your things, all of which, having their own Smart TV.

When you're ready to begin exploring, first get the lay of the land by taking a walk along the river to the base of the 199 Steps before embarking on the ascent towards Whitby Abbey; from the top you can experience beautiful seascapes and views over the town, as well as marvel at the Gothic and eerie Abbey ruins, said to have been inspiration for Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'.

Wander out to Whitby's East Pier and East Lighthouse before venturing into the town to find a spot for lunch, choosing from a host of restaurants, cafés, pubs and classic fish and chip shops.

Pass the Whalebone Arch or stop to get a holiday snap and set up camp on the beach if you've got warm weather, with Whitby's sandy strip backed by colourful beach huts and Whitby Pavilion.

For a memorable holiday excursion, head out on a boat trip with Whitby Whale Watching where cruises take passengers out to sea in search of whales, dolphins, seals and sea birds, it's sure to be a hit with any wildlife enthusiasts.

Enjoy a guided walk around this historic town with Whitby Storyteller Guided Walks and Tours, or head to the local museums including the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and Whitby Museum.

Walkers can delight in walks along the Cleveland Way, taking you along the beautiful coastline, whilst the disused railway line now transformed into The Cinder Track is perfect for walking and cycling as it's completely traffic free and runs all the way from Whitby down to Scarborough!

The natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park is not to be missed either, with a host of walking and cycling routes to be discovered, whilst Scarborough offers a lovely day out with its own beaches, castle, waterpark and SEA LIFE centre.
