    The location was ideal for us being so near the centre of Whitby. The owner Electra was a lovely lady, I left behind something large and heavy, she carefully packaged it and arranged delivery, it was despatched back to me in a matter of days, thankyou Electra.

    Thank you for you comment which are greatly appreciated by myself and Charlotte Property Owner

    A lift and allocated parking make staying here comfortable. It is very well equipped for self catering with some good quality things to use. It is a short walk along the harbour side into Whitby centre. We were met by the owner, Electra, who is a very welcoming host and made us feel we felt we were staying as her friends. Thoroughly recommend this property and we will be returning.

    Thank you for the lovely comments and look forward to hopefully meeting you again Property Owner

    Lift access and parking space extremely beneficial. Two items we’d chant: Beds were a bit hard and need more comfort dinning table chairs. But everything else was great: settee comfortable, great view from living room, kitchen well equipped and bathroom fantastic.

The property

A splendid third floor apartment, in a modern development overlooking the harbour, close to the town centre of Whitby.

Light and airy throughout, this lovely holiday apartment is a wonderful alternative to a Whitby cottage, providing excellent family accommodation, with the added benefit of private parking and lift access to the accommodation itself.

The rooms of this Whitby apartment are furnished and decorated in a contemporary style and the spacious open plan living area has superb views over the River Esk and upper harbour.

With a well-equipped kitchen and two tasteful bedrooms, this Whitby apartment offers a very comfortable holiday home.

Outside, the communal lawned grounds are well-kept and there are riverside walks to enjoy from the complex.

An easy walk from your Whitby accommodation brings you to the centre of this atmospheric seaside port, with its long, sandy beaches, cobbled market square and quaint, narrow streets.

Climb the 199 steps to the famous abbey or take a bracing cliff-top walk with magnificent views.

For the brave at heart, partake in an evening ghost walk, or hire one of the brightly coloured beach huts and just relax.

With a wealth of activities in the area, including the steam railway, the pretty market towns of Pickering and Helmsley and coastal villages such as Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay, there is plenty to occupy everyone on your holiday in Whitby.

A lovely apartment for an enjoyable break.

About the location

WHITBY

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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
