  • "The lack of parking made the whole week quite stressful."

    It got to the point that when we got the car into a space on the street we just left it there so did not use the car to explore the area. It was a huge negative as we had planned to go around the wider area. The house was nice and comfy. Only issues with the house was the non-locking back yard gate, the smell of pee in the yard and the terrible office style blinds which did not block any light for sleeping. Fixed the pee smell with some detergent and hot water but could do nothing about the light and lack of security if the kitchen door was open for the dogs. It was spacious and Whitby is a great place to explore but the parking means we will not be back.

  • "All good except kitchen which had not been well cleaned and was lacking some basics for the price of the rental e."

    G. there weren’t 5 matching glasses only mismatched glasses that looked as though they had come from a pub. There was a small selection of pans. Nothing big enough for a larger party. Floor was sandy and sticky when we arrived. Expected more for over a grand per week.

  • "Good points: - A nicely laid out property (but could do with a second bathroom (6 sharing 1 is not great - but we knew that going in)."

    - condition/ cleanliness of place was good. Negatives- - sea views, non existant (only view is from top room, which even then was limited) - top room, due to seagulls your request is not to open top windows which turns the whole floor into a furnace with no way of cooling the rooms. The noise of the birds nesting is relentless and paired with the heat made sleeping very hard, we had to purchase a large fan on day 2 to make the rooms useable. - you MUST make warning of the large slope into town, i took my parents (mid 70s) which made going into town very hard. - the small courtyard was useful but smelt a lot, i personally disinfected it twice whilst there which helped a little. Overall house ok (excluding top rooms) but would not stay again.

    The house was fantastic with a mix of contemporary and old styling close to the centre of Whitby and with some great dog walks nearby parking can become an issue and that's the only minus

  • "We had a really good couple of days at the cottage in Whitby."

    Parking was at a premium, but we were very close to the centre of town. Loads of room in the cottage. Maybe a second shower/bath would have been nice.

The property

15 George Street is a charming Victorian property with sea views boasting lots of character and set in the heart of Whitby, where its historic harbour glistens with colourful boats and its abbey towers over red rooftops.

This is the ideal place for a family holiday with friends in a wonderful area of North Yorkshire.

Climb three steps to the entrance hallway and head straight through to the main sitting room, which has a large bay window streaming in lots of natural light.

The electric fire adds warmth to the room during those colder months, where you can gather in the evenings and tune into the Smart TV or enjoy a board game together.

Move through to the second sitting room for some peace and quiet, or head down to the lower ground floor for a delicious homemade meal around the dining table, as the woodburning stove crackles away in the background.

The kitchen area is also on the lower ground floor and boasts a range cooker as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility next door.

There is access to the back yard from here, where you can sit out with a drink and discuss events from your day.

Find the master bedroom and family bathroom up on the first level, where you can indulge a hot soak in the bathtub on return from one of your walks.

Resting on the second floor, the double bedroom showcases fabulous views over the rooftops towards Whitby Abbey and the moors through the high window, while the twin and single bedrooms are ideal for those travelling with children or grandparents.

Discover many attractions in the town centre, which is a pleasant stroll away and has beaches, the harbour and many shops, pubs and restaurants along its winding streets and of course the 199 steps to reach the abbey.

Day trips can be enjoyed at Robin Hood's Bay or the seaside resort of Scarborough, while the North York Moors offer plenty to do in the great outdoors; you'll be spoilt for walking and cycling trails, there is also a golf course around a 10 minute drive away.

Choose this delightful holiday let for that much-needed break to Yorkshire.
