The property

The Fox's Den rests amidst the serenity of the outskirts of Whitby, a stone's throw from the town itself as well as the wondrous North York Moors National Park.

The smart interior and excellent location for discovering the attractions of the area is ideal to bring your friends and family together to escape from everyday life.

Set in a mid-terrace position on Captain Cook's Retreat, looking over the striking footbridge which leads towards Whitby; feel refreshed from the moment that you enter the bright and airy interior.

After experiencing some of the many superb opportunities available nearby, look forward to returning to the modern sitting room, featuring a TV, a soothing neutral layout with doors leading out to a charming little patio.

Adjacent to this is the rejuvenating kitchen/diner, complete in a fresh, stylish manner and lined with attractive units hosting a useful range of appliances.

Take the stairs to find the three immaculate bedrooms on the first floor, the two twin rooms are ideal for children and friends, while the master double bedroom boasts access onto a peaceful balcony to be enjoyed with a relaxing glass of wine at the end of the day.

The interior concludes excellently with a pristine family bathroom, offering a shower over the bath.

A social decking area lies to the rear of The Fox's Den, a wonderful space for some alfresco dining under the summer sun.

A head-clearing walk will take you into charm-filled central Whitby, with much to see and do in the way of high-quality amenities and a range of attractions, not to mention the beautiful old abbey and glorious sandy beach.

Scenic walking and cycling can be enjoyed throughout the North York Moors National park, meanwhile a number of popular tourist spots can be found nearby, including Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough slightly further afield.

A wonderfully homely base from which to explore this tremendous region.

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 abundance of activity 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 every interest and time of year. 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. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in 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.
