This really is the refined coastal property you’ve been searching for! Enter your accommodation via a small courtyard – ideal for storing bikes or beach equipment – and feel instantly at home.

Notice the tranquil décor throughout, lovely Farrow and Ball neutrals, as you pass from the entrance hall into a TV room/snug with comfortable seating and a large Smart TV. The main elegant sitting room boasts an open fire, chandelier and sash windows – the epitome of luxury holiday living.

Light the fire and candles, snuggle up on the comfortable settees, borrow a book from the small library and make time for the things you love. The corridor leads to one of the front doors – there’s two – which has an external stone, spiral staircase descending down to the front garden below.

A real sun trap!

Linger here under the copper beech tree and enjoy a chilled glass of bubbly.

A second, large bathroom, also with free-standing bath, basin and WC can be found on the second floor.

Two more lovely bedrooms await, tucked in the eaves: a cosy double and a cute twin with full size 3’ beds and seaside-inspired accessories.

Additional storage on the landing is a bonus. When it comes to gastronomy, Whitby is well-known for its fine seafood and restaurant scene, whether you want a special celebration or just a night off from cooking.

The harbour is the beating heart of the town, where fishing and pleasure boats leave daily – a fun way to see Whitby a different way.

Be sure to call by the RNLI museum, once a lifeboat station, on your way to the sandy beach.

For more history, take a stroll into the ‘old town’ and wind your way through its twisted cobbled streets, past fishermen’s cottages and towards the famous ‘199 steps’ leading to St Mary’s church and the abbey – a worthwhile climb for the fabulous views over Whitby’s picturesque pan-tiled rooftops and out to sea. Travel inland and you will find miles of glorious countryside and the North York Moors – stunning at any time of year, especially when heather the blooms.

There is also some great coastal walking around the nearby fishing villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay. The Old Theatre will most definitely add a touch of luxury to your coastal getaway – a slice of Yorkshire heaven for you and your guests.
