The property

A stylish Whitby townhouse, five minutes’ stroll from the historic town centre with its chic restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and eclectic shops.

This gorgeous three bedroom property has been refurbished to a very high standard, each of its spacious rooms are individually styled to create the wow factor.

Families and couples seeking an impressive coastal getaway, well situated for exploring Whitby and the splendours of Yorkshire’s stunning coastline, should check into the perfectly appointed ‘See Glympse’. Located in a quiet area of Whitby, the cottage is only a ten minute walk to the golden sandy beach and thriving waterfront scene. On entering the property, a hallway leads to a welcoming sitting room decorated in warm, earthy tones.

Exposed brickwork and real-flame effect fire create a contemporary rustic feel, whilst the chandelier, cornicing and large window add a touch of period elegance.

Relax together in this cosy space after a day’s sightseeing.

Smart TV/DVD included. The dining room offers a pleasant place to enjoy a meal, and is decorated in duck egg blue with accents of copper.

There is a wall-mounted Smart TV/DVD and a window seat which stores a selection of board games and DVDs - perfect for relaxed holiday entertainment.

From here, enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the small rear courtyard. A well-equipped kitchen is similarly decorated, with gorgeous wall tiles that add French-style vintage charm.

There is a useful ground floor cloakroom. To the first floor, the main house bathroom is sure to impress.

It is huge!

And the Victorian detailing is delightful: bottle-green wall tiles with a claw-foot roll-top bath, high WC cistern and ornate over-basin mirror.

Choose from a refreshing walk-in double shower or a leisurely soak – do things your way! Leading off the bathroom is a sumptuous master king-size bedroom – guests can be sure of a good night’s sleep in the fantastic mahogany bed with a deep mattress for extra comfort.

For those who like to unwind before bed, there is a Smart TV as well as bedside reading lamps – why not borrow a book from the small library on the second floor. Also on the second floor are a double bedroom with a charming nautical theme décor and a king-size double with en-suite shower room and TV, the latter boasts a fabulous long-range view of Whitby Abbey. A flagged rear enclosed courtyard garden provides a welcome spot to relax and take in the sea air. There’s so much to see and do, for all ages, in Whitby.

Kids will enjoy crabbing in the harbour or a day at the beach, perhaps boogie boarding or fossil hunting, followed by world-class fish and chips.

Boat trips run regularly throughout the year from the nearby harbour and are a fun way to see more of the heritage coast. Or for a magical experience, hop on board a steam locomotive across the North York Moors – the scenery is so pretty.

Art-lovers should check out local artists from nearby Staithes, there’s also an annual Arts Festival in September. See Glympe provides a restful home from home in picturesque Whitby.

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 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. 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.
