The property

A delightful, terraced Whitby cottage, close to the town centre, and tucked away down what is reputed to be one of the narrowest lanes in the country.

Comfortable and welcoming, this Whitby holiday cottage retains some original character, with steep, winding staircases and exposed beams.

Tastefully decorated and furnished, with a pleasant kitchen/dining area, ideal for a Whitby self-catering cottage, and with the beach only a minute's walk away, this Whitby cottage makes a perfect place to stay.

All the amenities of this historic seaside port are on the doorstep - explore the old cobbled streets with their individual shops, visit the excellent restaurants, tea rooms and inns, stroll on the long, sandy beaches or climb the famous 199 steps up to the wonderful Whitby Abbey!

Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of the North York Moors and pretty inland villages, this area has a wealth of attractions, making this Whitby holiday cottage a great base all year round.
