Property code: OC-W442

Stay in this quaint cottage in the seaside village of Whitby to spend glorious days strolling the beach (0.5 miles) and evenings on the cottage’s rooftop patio. Wander Whitby’s cobbled streets and historic yards and stumble upon local pubs where you can sample fresh seafood. Hike the 199 steps to the ruins of Whitby Abbey (0.3 miles) for incredible views that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula or make your way to the historic harbour (0.5 miles). Early in the morning you can see fishing boats sail into port and get first choice of catch for your dinner. Head to Robin Hood’s Bay (5.5 miles) and learn all about the secret life of 18th-century smugglers on the Smugglers’ Trail.

Step inside this characterful cottage and you’ll find yourself in a spacious lounge/dining room with original exposed timber panels. Take a moment to slip onto a sofa and make yourself at home in front of the wood burner. When it’s time for dinner, head to the modern shaker-style kitchen, where you’ll find everything you need to cook for your loved ones. Get everyone together to share a meal at the table in the lounge/dining room before heading up to the first floor landing to access the lovely rooftop terrace. On the first floor, you’ll also find a double bedroom with a beautiful traditional fireplace and a chic family bathroom. Up on the second floor, two single bedrooms complete this charming cottage’s layout.

In the morning, the rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy your freshly-brewed morning coffee, and is accessed from the first-floor landing.

Amazing cottage right in the middle of Whitby, such a great location. The cottage had everything you needed and it was great that it was dog friendly.

Overall the stay was excellent. The only thing that made the comfort score a 4 and not a 5 was the sofas, the sturdy arms made it quite hard to get comfortable.

Totally enjoyable but the lighting was very dim and made the place feel very dinghy downstairs especially. Cracking venue and everything available. Thank you.

Leaking tap in kitchen. Boiler noise etc think radiators need bleeding and new whaler for tap. Made quite a lot of noise also damp towels on arrival

The only two things that we could moan about were; 1) The beds were very very hard. Harder than I remembered from last year (although I suspect they're the same and i've gone soft). 2) Unloading and loading suitcases into the property is not easy. The traffic wardens in Whitby town are friendly enough and understand this.

The only disappointment was the freezer which is a must for my annual trip and which I phoned you to confirm was part of the equipment. However on arrival the freezer turned out to be a counter top freezer and not adequate for my needs. This apart the cottage and the booking process were both excellent and I have already booked 2 additional stays tRead morehrough your website. Hide
