    “The cottage was lovely, met all our needs.”

    The only suggestion I would have is a mop and bucket so you could mop the bathroom each day especially after 4 adults had used it.

The property

Immaculate cottage with harbour views and lovely outside space in historic Whitby. This superb property has been lovingly refurbished and decorated to provide quality accommodation for families and couples seeking a coastal getaway. Located on the east side of town, just off Church Street, near the harbour, Sunshine Cottage is within easy walking distance of Whitby’s beautiful ‘old town’.

A pleasant harbour-side stroll takes you directly to the historic centre and beach where you can feel the sand between your toes in no time. This lovely cottage sleeps 4 people.

To the ground floor you’ll find a reception room with TV and sofa bed to create space for an additional person.

This room leads to a delightful terraced garden. Meanwhile, the ground floor offers a luxury open plan living area with contemporary kitchen, dining area and sitting area – all in a tasteful, coastal-inspired palette of blues, creams and soft pebble greys.

Take it easy on the comfortable seating and enjoy the harbour views as you unwind and plan what to see next in beautiful Whitby.

The wood burning stove-style electric fire is so cosy after a bracing coastal walk. The stylish house ground floor shower room has a real boutique hotel feel to it and includes a good size shower, basin and WC. Moving upstairs, the bedrooms offer superb harbour views.

To the first floor is a double with brass bed and varnished wooden flooring – so characterful.

Tucked away in the eaves on the second floor is a charming exposed timber-beamed twin – perfect for a spot of star-gazing on a clear night! To the outside is an enclosed lawned garden to one side plus a two-tier terraced garden with views over Whitby marina.

Sit and enjoy a pot of tea (Yorkshire, of course!), watch the boats and listen to the seagulls wheeling.

BBQ included.

Whitby is a gastronomic town, well-known for its fantastic fish and chips and award-winning restaurants.

There’s a lively atmosphere along the waterfront as you head towards the beach - a great place for people-watching.

To learn more about the history of Whitby head for the Captain Cook Memorial Museum or Whitby Museum.

If you’re feeling brave, try The Dracula Experience for a hair-raising insight into the Whitby that inspired Bram Stoker’s gothic masterpiece. With stunning walks along the heritage coast, miles of sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages and traditional seaside fun – there really is something for everyone to enjoy. A stay at Sunshine Cottage is a great choice – like many guests, you may wish to return to fully appreciate this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

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 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.

Notes: The property is accessed either from Church Street (up some stone steps) or from the top, where there is free 24/7 on-street parking. The second floor twin room has no door and there is an open space at the top of the stairs; very young children would, therefore, need to be assisted in climbing the stairs and supervised whilst in the room. Note: Please note that there is no washing machine at this property.
