The property

With eye level views of the abbey, and across to the sea from the 5th floor terrace, this lovely, terraced Georgian property is in the centre of Whitby, quietly tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of this historic seaside town, close to the beautiful Pannett Park.

Providing spacious, traditional and well equipped accommodation, this cottage is ideal for family groups and friends wishing to enjoy this popular port and to explore the beautiful Heritage Coast.

Set over five floors, the cottage retains many original features, including stripped pine doors and floors, wood panelling, beams and a feature fireplace in the comfortable sitting room.

The top floor bedroom has patio doors leading onto a rooftop terrace with views of the abbey and the sea - a lovely spot to sit and watch the world go by, or indeed enjoy afternoon drinks!

A couple of minutes' walk brings you to numerous restaurants, tea rooms, pubs and individual shops, with quaint narrow streets, cobbled ginnels and the picturesque harbour.

Climb the 199 steps to the abbey, take a bracing cliff-top walk on the Cleveland Way or relax on the long, sandy beaches, complete with donkeys in the summer months!

The surrounding area from this Whitby cottage has a wealth of attractions, including the steam railway at Grosmont, the spectacular scenery of the North York Moors and pretty inland and coastal villages such as Robin Hood's Bay, Goathland and Danby.

A superb cottage at any time of the year.

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.
