    “Ashben cottage is very homely with nice decor.”

    Beds were comfortable with good mattress. One bathroom only had a bath and the shower in the second bathroom is very small so not good if you’re a big person. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

The property

Set amidst the excitement of Whitby’s town centre is Ashben Cottage, a charming terrace cottage, perfectly positioned for exploring the coastal town and beyond to the North York Moors National Park.

Boasting a sought after location, Ashben Cottage is perfect for couples, families or friends to use as a base for a relaxing break to the town that inspired the gripping tale of Dracula. After soaking up the traditional cobbled streets and winding alleyways of Whitby, head inside to a handy boot room, where you can kick off your shoes and store your coats before venturing further to find the open-plan living room, decorated with contemporary furnishings and all the modern conveniences for a self-catered stay.

The well-equipped kitchen is certain to entice the budding chef of the group to rustle up tasty meals and the accompanying breakfast bar, makes a great spot for mapping out the days ahead and savouring a glass of wine as dinner bakes in the oven.

Afterwards, look forward to kicking back on the sofas and browse the channels of the Smart TV to catch up on the latest box set or simply enjoy the company of your loved ones. As the evening draws to a close, climb the staircase to the first floor to make yourself truly at home in either the super-king-size bedroom with zip/link features or within the double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, both boasting a refreshing colour palette and quality linens ensuring that sleep comes easy.

Each morning, step out onto the private courtyard to enjoying the first glimpse of sunshine and return later on in the evening, to relish in a spot of alfresco dining upon the patio table. Meander the town centre of Whitby, where you will find a plethora of places to eat and drink, ranging from traditional fish and chip shops to idyllic pubs to fine dining restaurants, there is certainly something for all palates and pockets here.

Make your way to the soft sands at the beach, where you can soak up the sunshine, try your hand at a range of watersports, or take a touristy snap at the twenty-foot Whalebone Arch, an iconic Whitby landmark.

Climb the famous 199 steps that lead up to iconic ruins of Whitby Abbey, before exploring the ruins and paying a visit to the Church of St Mary and admiring the views across the town. Avid ramblers can also look forward to discovering the North York Moors National Park, home to a plethora of paths taking in a varied landscape of coastline, moorland and woodland, home to rich geology and wildlife.

Bring your loves ones to Ashben Cottage to enjoy a refreshing holiday at any time of the year.
