    Kitchen very well equipped with everything we needed to cook. Washer dryer was handy to have since electric heaters nothing could be dried on them. Plastic sheeting on the single beds were abit warm for my son, a breathable waterproof mattress protector would of been less warm. But he still slept OK just made him hot. Allocated parking space for the apartment was handy. Enjoyed our stay and could get in abit earlier as the owner messaged us was nice of them. Close enough to walk into Whitby. The window seat was lovely looking out our son loved it. Enjoyed our stay thank you

    Thank you for your comments. We do appreciate all Customer feedback. We are sorry that you feel that some things were not to your satisfaction. I can assure you that the apartment is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between every set of guests. Both bathrooms are fully functioning, it is disappointing that the decor was not to your taste. To minimise the possible transmission of Covid, the manuals for all appliances are emailed in advance to guests and we check that they have been received. All electric ovens if switched off at the wall will need the clock re-setting once switched on before they will work. We mention this in the Guest Information just in case and the manual for the oven explains how to do this. We are pleased we were able to quickly resolve your issue over the telephone. You mentioned that you were not internet savvy so could not access the manuals. We are not aware of any previous guests having difficulties but we may need to review whether we return to leaving the manuals in the apartment. I can assure you that the oven works absolutely fine and other guests have not raised any issues. Note that the single cracked mug has been replaced. Once again, thanks for your comments Property Owner

    Lovely, spacious flat in a great location. Excellent having free car parking and flat only a 5-10 minute stroll into the centre of Whitby. The only small negative was lack of provision of soap, toilet roll and washing up liquid in the flat- I really think this should be provided. Thanks for a lovely visit.

  • "For our first family holiday after having a baby last year, we had such a perfect holiday."

    The apartment was just right for us especially having car parking, easy access and beautiful views. The only thing that I would change is the check out time. 9am is early (especially with a little one) only one of us could pack the car so it was a bit of a rush to get out for 9am. Even if it was 9:30am that would be a bag help. Thank you for letting us stay with you, we would definitely recommend and would love to come back.

    The nearby fish and chip shop, we were told by a local in the queue, has the best fish in Whitby! Having faced Whitby's parking (and its cost) in previous visits to the town, the dedicated parking space is a real bonus! The apartment is really spacious, comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner provided plenty of information in advance of our stay. In short, it was the perfect base for our family's short break. The only thing I would change is the 0900 check-out time (but that is due to the extra cleaning for Covid reasons).

  • "The property is in a lovely spot overlooking the river with good views and a short walk to the town."

    It's spacious and comfortable (sitting on the window seat and admiring the view was great) and fairly well equipped. Unfortunately, it does have a down side. There's no gas supply to the property so there's no central heating as a consequence. This means you're reliant on a cylinder heater for hot water, which is a problem if someone has a bath, it means you've got to wait for more hot water. There's a number of storage heaters which gave off decent heat, but one in the twin bedroom took a while to decide to work, despite us trying the controls. There's no dishwasher (it doesn't list one). But if a group of you are staying for a week do you really want to be washing pots after meals. There's a large but old flat screen tv and Freeview box. The operation of both requires two remotes and is a bit of a faff. Could really do with upgrading the telly and getting Sky. We coupled our iPhone to the stereo unit in the room and listened to music instead.

  • "We were slightly concerned when we booked this apartment as it was located very near to a high busy looking flyover but we certainly shouldn't have been."

    This is by far one of the best holiday apartments we have stayed in and we have stayed in many! It is bright and spacious and has the most spectacular view of the river and the steam railway - a massive bonus! It is extremely well fitted out and very comfortable. Cedric, next door, who welcomed us was a star ensuring we knew how things worked etc. The apartment is ideally located just outside of the main hussle and bussle of Whitby , however, it is a very easy stroll into the centre. You hear very very little of the noise from the flyover. We hardly used the car at all during our stay which we could leave safely parked in the designated parking bay right outside the apartment building. We would love to come again this year but looks like the apartment is fully booked until the very end of the year - why should I be surprised! It's excellent.

The property

This well-presented apartment rests on the first floor on the banks of the River Esk, in the fascinating seaside town of Whitby in North Yorkshire.

Offering immaculate accommodation for up to six people, this is a perfect getaway for friends, family and couples alike.

Take the stairs or the lift up to this holiday home and be welcomed by the refreshing interior.

Straight ahead sits an uplifting dual-aspect living/dining room - if nothing on the TV takes your fancy, enjoy the splendid views of the River Esk from the window seats and juliet balcony, and watch the steam trains across the river as they pass-by.

Adjacent to this is a compact yet well-equipped kitchen, which also offers a lovely little breakfast table where you can sip your morning coffee before the activity-packed day begins.

The three bedrooms range conveniently from a cosy bunk room to an immaculate twin and a master double bedroom benefiting from a stunning, black and white en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom is similarly furnished, instead boasting a bath with an optional shower over it.

A soothing stroll along the River Esk takes you into the heart of fabulous Whitby, a seaside town abounding in fine amenities and facilities, as well as a number of attractions including the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, the striking Whitby Abbey and a glorious stretch of sandy beach.

This town is bordered by the North York Moors National Park, a magnificent landscape boasting undulating countryside with outdoor opportunities aplenty.

A smart apartment making for an excellent base for discovering Whitby and the area.
