Tucked on the hill-side of this stunning seaside town, Whitby Cottage is a perfectly traditional, beautifully restored 17th-century cottage for four very lucky guests!

Located right at the heart of this enchanting town, you’ll find getting out and about a total breeze, and will glimpse the delights of the town as you approach, whether by car or on foot. Entry to the home is down a small set of steps, and from the outset, the charm of the cottage is apparent. Stepping inside, the magnificent period paint colours and fabrics, alongside beamed ceilings, patterned furnishings and furniture of the time, will take you back hundreds of years!

Yet this renovation is anything but outdated, with fabulous contemporary comforts including a high-spec TV in each bedroom and the living room, a dazzling kitchen and superb modern bathrooms! Get cosy in front of the log burner as you admire the display cabinet and handcrafted monk’s bench tucked in the cosy corner!

Heading upstairs you will find two dazzling bedrooms, embodying the charm of the original home alongside a luxurious design. Both rooms are grand, with large double beds, TVs and big windows. One is also complete with a decorative fireplace and a cosy armchair, perfect for a little relaxation. There are also two gorgeous bathrooms, each equipped with a modern shower with beautiful monochrome designs in each, making you feel utterly pampered and at home!

In your lovely courtyard, you can take a perch on the bench and enjoy the fresh sea air and watching the world go by. With everything within walking distance, you’ll find this location very useful indeed. Whitby is home to some of the best fish and chips in the UK, with countless to choose from, as well as countless fabulous Yorkshire pubs in which you can try one of the county’s famous real ales!

A striking sight on the cliff-top, Whitby Abbey was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ setting, and its gothic ruins are still well worth a visit. For an active day out, Dalby Forest is just a short drive away and has some of the country’s finest mountain bike trails, as well as an Activity Centre with paintballing, Go Ape and much more!

What you should know…

  • Please note that this is a bijoux cottage and so the living space may be a little compact for four adults however it makes the perfect base for exploring Whitby
  • Because of the lack of convenient parking in many areas, driving around Whitby is not recommended, especially in summer – but you’re within walking distance of all the main attractions!
  • Sorry, pets aren’t welcome at this property

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Whitby is a charming seaside town of the east coast of North Yorkshire famous for its vampire legends and impressive whalebone arch. The vibrant River Esk splits the town in half, with the majestic Whitby Abbey on the East Cliff, a dazzling Gothic ruin steeped in history and the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’, and to the West is West Cliff Beach, with golden sands lined with beach huts. Climb the 199 steps to the Abbey and the Church of St. Mary for incredible views across the North Sea and watch the brightly coloured fishing vessels on the horizon!

North Yorkshire is one of the UK’s most beautiful counties, home to the two vast National Parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, and bursting with history and tradition. Across the two national parks, you’ll find dramatic landscapes like that of Malham Cove, incredible scenery at every turn and always a warm welcome.

There are two cities in the county: York and Ripon, the latter of which is, in fact, the oldest city in England. Both are deeply historical, teeming with glorious architecture including their Minster and Cathedral respectively, and winding cobbled streets. Meanwhile, the endless villages that can be found in nearly every valley are undoubtedly worth visiting.  Pop in for a pint and get to know the friendly locals at the village pub or try out the many quaint cafes.

Of course, you can’t leave Yorkshire without a taste of its famous parkin, Wensleydale cheese and rhubarb from The Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle! Yorkshire is also home to some of the country’s best breweries, including Saltaire Brewery, the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakstons and you can enjoy a fine curry throughout the county.

Dotted across the breath-taking landscape of North Yorkshire are a series of striking examples of former abbeys, mostly now ruins. The most famous (and deservedly so) are Fountains Abbey near Ripon and Bolton Priory at the southern tip of the Dales, right at the entrance to the National Park. Complete with a rather lovely café and ice cream shop and set on the riverside amid thriving forests and rolling hills, this is worth a visit for its magnificent location alone!

Reviews

  • Nice but very noisey

    Posted by Carol H on 23/10/2021

    Just returned from this cottage which was lovely it had everything you need from lovely towels to all kitchen items. Cottage is small and you would struggle with 4 people. Main issues are there is a pub across the road which plays music to the early hours and the cottage is not double glazed so the noise kept us a wake most of the week not as relaxing as we thought. There is no parking yes we were left 2 parking cards to use but where you can use them there was no spaces all week we had to leave the car about a 15 min walk away from the cottage the lay bay on the road was always full to even difficult to unpack the car on arrival day. The cottage is next to a main road so very busy and noisy but easy walking distance to the harbour. We found a few cleaning issues and note left in the cottage for the cleaner. Overall good but we would not return due to noise and feeling like i need to catch up with my sleep now.
