    The property is warm, cosy and spacious. It is very well equipped. We cooked on many nights and everything was there that we needed. It has a great view from the bay window and main bedroom to the coast. The area was quiet. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here.

    Far nicer than we expected as the photos do not do the apartment justice. We would have no hesitation booking again despite the parking being difficult at times.

  • "This is a lovely clean apartment."

    Presentation and comfort good. Location and views are lovely. Shower head needs an upgrade. Parking can be tricky as there is no designated spot. You need good walking legs to get up and down the hills around here but if you’re able, there’s plenty to do. Definitely recommend this apartment as it’s lovely inside.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback, we are so pleased that you would definitely recommend White Horses. Feedback is so important to us and as a result of feedback received from you and a previous guest, an order has been placed for an upgrade to the shower head. Property Owner

    Loved the little upgrades to the decorations - New kitchen table, lamps, etc, but would still really welcome an upgrade to the shower, it's the only niggle from our stay. It won't stop us from going back again, and if you are looking for something with fabulous views, great comfort, wonderful location, this is the place to stay!

    Thank you very much for your lovely feedback and for returning for a second visit.

The property

Resting centrally in Whitby, North Yorkshire, is this converted Victorian apartment, White Horses.

Located on the second floor, elevated views of the town are on offer, along with a well-located base, within proximity to local shops, eateries, attractions, the beach, and the North York Moors National Park, combining convenience and character for a family of four.

Head upstairs, reaching your own private apartment door, before relaxing in the open-plan living space, with high ceilings, an ornamental fireplace, plush seating, and large bay windows with stunning views across the rooftops to Whitby Abbey, St Mary's Church, the marina, and the white horses of the sea beyond the harbour walls.

Under the archway, you will find a lovely kitchen and dining area with a wooden table, and state-of-the-art fixtures, where you can prepare and enjoy meals as a group.

The first bedroom of White Horses hosts full sized single bunkbeds intertwined with a touch of the seaside for a peaceful effect throughout, whilst the double bedroom breathes nothing less than elegance, well-matched and tied together by seaside features, flowing curtains and a glimpse of scenery.

The apartment is complete with a spacious bathroom, perfect for refreshing in after a day of adventure.

On your doorstep you’ll have plenty to see and do as a family, from dining out at The Marine Bar & Restaurant, or grabbing some British staples at Magpie Café, to touring Whitby Abbey, relaxing upon the beachfront, climbing the 199 steps for the best vantage point, or touring the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, full of history-rich artefacts and stories.

Scarborough is a must-visit town to add to your itinerary, dotted with seaside attractions to entertain the entire family, including Scarborough Castle, SEA LIFE Scarborough, the stunning Italian Gardens, Alpamare UK waterpark, and Scarborough Open Air Theatre, hosting year-round events.

Conclude your adventure by exploring the national park and its abundance of hot spots, including Mallyan Spout Waterfall, Hole of Horcum, and The Old Coastguard Station, offering the best of both the coast and country.

Gather your loved ones with White Horses as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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 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.
