    “Really lovely well equipped cottage.”

    Another comfy chair would be welcome in the lounge. Great attention to detail re fixtures and fittings. We stayed during Regatta week, so the town was exceptionally busy. Some gorgeous walks nearby.

Your coastal getaway starts here. There’s everything you’ll need to rustle up dinner in the smart, fully-equipped kitchen with electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer – plus there’s a small utility with handy washing machine.

Enjoy breakfast at the cute dining table for two as you plan the day’s adventure or simply enjoy a lazy start – that’s what holidays are all about! You’ll find a comfortable sofa, small book library, Smart TV/DVD, plus Bluetooth docking station and free WiFi.

After all that fresh sea air and adventure, what could be nicer than relaxing together on an evening over a movie, with a bottle of something chilled and having a good catch up? When it’s time for bed, the comfortable king-size bed with crisp white bed linens is sure to please.

The décor is a restful blend of pale greys and coastal blues.

There are bedside tables with lamps, plus hanging space, a chest of drawers and a rattan chair. There is also a fabulous large shower room with a double-size, walk-in shower cubicle, basin and WC.

A small paved courtyard area to the front, with table and chairs, provides a superb spot to enjoy a fresh coffee and a croissant before heading out for the day. When exploring Whitby, leave the car behind and strike out on foot.

No visit is complete without a day at the beach – borrow the picnic hamper provided.

Whitby is one of the few seaside locations where the sun rises and sets over the same bay, very romantic!

The food here is great, whether it’s a plate of Whitby’s finest fish and chips, luxury seafood or a pub meal.

Spend time quayside, in one of the bustling wine bars – perfect for people watching.

Or take a boat trip from the harbour for a different perspective. When you’re ready, explore more of the heritage coast – pretty fishing villages, such as Staithes or Robin Hood’s Bay – are within easy reach.
