About this property

Savour a sumptuous stay in the seaside Yorkshire town of Whitby when you and your friends or family book this stylish cottage. Sleeping six guests, the traditional, three-bedroom property was once home to a mariner but has now been exquisitely upgraded to offer a beautiful blend of contemporary comfort and original charm. Just 350 metres from the sandy beach and 0.5 miles from the famous abbey ruins, the three-storey cottage is also well positioned for getting out and about in the North York Moors.

Wander inside the colourful cottage to find enticing accommodation with a reverse-level design and refined coastal theme. At ground-floor level, a twin bedroom and a double each have a Smart TV for those slow holiday mornings and there is access to a family shower room and separate WC. The first floor is home to the open-plan, white-washed beamed lounge/kitchen/diner where you can gather to prepare the freshly landed fish, lobster or crab you have bought in Whitby, before dining at the table and settling down to watch a film on yet another Smart TV. The modern-style wood burner can be lit in the colder months to throw a cosy glow out into the welcoming space. A king-size bedroom, which looks out towards the harbour and has an en-suite bathroom and Smart TV, is on the second floor of the retreat. Have breakfast out on the patio to the front of the cottage on warm days and sit out here with a bottle of wine in the evening.

Lace up your walking boots and follow a section of the Cleveland Way along the coast. Try the 7-mile stretch to picture-postcard Robin Hood’s Bay. Experience the dramatic coastline from the water instead, looking out for seals and other wildlife, when you book a sea cruise from Whitby Harbour.

    • Mrs Harper

      What a fantastic holiday cottage, the location is ideal, close to the beach and town centre with a really lovely view across the harbour to Whitby Abbey. The property is full of character and lovely decorative touches which make it feel more like a home than a bland rental. The beds were very comfortable too!
