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. Note: This property can be booked with Refs.1066535 and 1101986, together sleeping up to 9 guests.

The cottage was a lovely place to stay for a couple or a small family quite surrounding at night and day it is situated in the perfect area of whitby with everything you need close by we realy enjoyed our week theire I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go for a nice quite break Away loved it thanks Tony and alicia xx
Miss Hall
Overall I found the Cottage to be extremely confortable and to have all the facilities I required to have an enjoyable holiday. However the fridge could do with an overhaul as the bottle tray has fallen off the door. I would have found a shower over the bath in the main Bathroom to be very beneficial. Additional clothes storage, ie a chest of drawers, in the main bedroom would have been far more effective then a dressing table. Directions to find the Cottage would have been far more accurate if Silver St. had been provided rather than Skinner St. and would have saved a fair amount of stress and frustration. Massive plus points go to providing Parking permits, the very close proximity to all amenities including the beach and Old Town Centre and to milk and Cookies on arrival.
Mr Hunter
Very good, centrally located, cottage, close to town centre, harbour and beaches. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable. Some minor niggles- instructions should say access is from passage between 14-15 Silver Street; upstairs windows don’t all open (or stay open)- important on hottest day ever!; blinds in bedrooms let in the light. On balance a great stay.
Mr Allen
A lovely stay in the extremely well presented cottage. Parking did not prove to be a problem but people with mobility issues may find it difficult. The only comment we would make is regarding the refuse disposal and collection. It was clear that the collection days were Monday and Thursday but it simply added “put the bin outside”. We put the bin with the other bins in the yard at the end of the access passage on Wed evening but the bin was not collected or emptied by Friday when we left. More specific detail would be valuable. All councils have very different structures.
Mr Brewerton
I stayed with my daughter and her 6 month old son. The cottage was extremely clean. We were left parking permits and were able to find a space when we needed one. It might be more difficult in holiday periods. Pros: Ideal location within walking distance of everything. The bedrooms are both a good size and there was plenty of room to put up a cot for the baby. The beds were very comfortable. There was everything we needed including Alexa and wi-fi access. Con: The living area would be tight for 4 adults and the only shower was in the ensuite. A separate shower over the bath would be good especially if you were not a family. I haven't given the facilities full marks because of this. I would recommend this cottage.
Mrs Fewster
We had a lovely stay. Cottage has all you need, very clean and close to all attractions. Lovely walks from cottage. Lovely bars and restaurants close by. Just one thing I would recommend, the shower room is quite large this would benefit from a larger shower cubicle. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family.
Mrs Vincent
For a holiday let the shower was too small and the bath could have done with a shower over. Also the couches were very low other than that the beds were very comfy and the fittings good
Mr Lomas
Perfect location to enjoy all that whitby offers! Luxury cottage for a family of four. All mod cons and a home from home with everything you could need. Very accommodating hosts.
Miss Varley
We stayed in Ashben Cottage for 7 nights in late October. The cottage was excellent. Clean, bright and well aired. The cottage has large warm bedrooms and really comfy beds. It is centrally placed in Whitby itself. Situated very close to everything. Shops, restaurants and sites are all less than two minutes away on foot! We went for a quiet relaxing break. The cottage is down a (very narrow) road so no noise or disturbances. Overall I would say 'outstanding'.
Mr Wilson
The cottage was lovely and the location perfect for exploring what Whitby had to offer. The beds were extremely comfortable and the 2nd bedroom bed was HUGE, certainly enough room if you have 2 kids that don’t mind sharing. In our case we have 1 little one who was very excited to have a massive bed to herself! The cottage is also well kitted out for modern life with lovely bathrooms, kitchen and good wi-fi. The kitchen has everything you need although if you’re like us we didn’t need to use it very often due to plentiful accessible fish and chips! Many thanks to the cottage owners who made the place so welcoming and Whitby was such a gem with both classic seaside/seafront activities (amusements, fairground rides, boat trips) alongside charming cobbled street coffee shops, restaurants and posh shops selling handmade jewellery (amongst other things). To top all that off you have the Abbey, a truly magical place to walk around and we were lucky enough to also catch a (child friendly) production of Dracula being performed within the grounds of the Abbey which was brilliant and at no extra charge! I think the theatre group that did it perform there every summer so it’s definitely worth it if you have a well timed visit. Thanks again so much to the owners of Ashben Cottage and we will definitely be heading back to Whitby!
Mr Auger
Once you can find this hidden house you'll find everything you need. The owner Sally has gone the extra mile with extra touches including an Alexa. Everything was spotless. Whitby is a great holiday getaway, the only real issue is the parking. Once we'd found a space we didn't dare move the car as no guarantee you'd be able to park when you returned, but we made use of the good bus service. There is also a train service. Lots of places to eat and drink and loads of benches to just rest and people watch.
Mrs Radford
Lovely place nice and peaceful Nice touches by Sally Every thing you need in the cottage Brent
We loved it, it was brilliant, thank you so much :)
Miss Vicky Edmonds
We had a really wonderful stay at Ashben cottage. It’s in a fantastic location in one of our most favourite places to visit. The cottage was perfect, really comfortable and cosy. It was very clean and tidy and warm. We had everything we needed and more. There were some really nice touches like a welcome pack of the most delicious gingerbread biscuits I’ve ever tasted (from Bothams). Our children loved all the gadgets like the Amazon echo. We had a great week and can’t wait to return!
Miss Oriel Boyle
Ashben Cottage was well tucked away down a little alley but it was a hidden gem. Once found we discovered a very comfortable cottage. The cottage was well equipped with all we needed. The owners Sally and Graham were very helpful. The cottage was in a fantastic location, very central. We had a super holiday in Whitby and the weather was very kind to us. Would certainly book Ashben Cottage again.
Mrs Lynn Fowley
Ashben Cottage is a very high spec property. It was immaculately clean and has everything that you may need to make your stay enjoyable with every home from home comforts .Everything was of a very high standard. It was so nice having a welcome pack including milk and biscuits and a bonus having Alexa and wi fi phone charger in the bedroom All in all it is perfect, with a central location although must say did initially have a job finding it.The only downside is the availability of the parking. However we did not complete our stay due to the current circumstances of Covid. Whitby itself was just to crowded and nobody but nobody observed any social distances and showed any regard or respect for others.So with regret we made the decision for our own personal safety to return home. We would love to return under different circumstances but the meantime would not hesitate to recommend.
Mrs Catherine Stocker
Lovely cottage in perfect location . Very clean and well decorated lots of little extras would definitely recommend .
Mrs Maxine Ruddock
Nice clean accommodation, very cosy feel with pretty much everything you could need for a weekend break. Great location! although there is no extra cost for parking as it is covered by the cottage owners this is just street parking and it was a struggle to get parked near to the cottage as Whitby is a popular little place.
Miss Amanda Marshall
Great central location for Whitby. We didn’t use the car all week. Really clean cottage with everything we needed. Limited space downstairs but nothing we couldn’t cope with and the wonderful upstairs rooms and bathrooms more than made up for it! Loads of fabulous walks to do nearby and we made the most of these. Would highly recommend this cottage.
Mrs Vanessa Bartlett
We would definitely recommend Ashben Cottage for a holiday or short break in Whitby. Ideal for both couples and families. The property is luxuriously decorated inside and all very new and modern and also very comfortable, with plenty of storage areas. The location is just off the main high street in the town so ideal to get about on foot and there is conveniently a car park just a couple hundred yards up the road to park your vehicle. We had a wonderful stay and the owners had left a surprise Birthday cake awaiting for my husband (which is one of the best cakes we have ever had and from Bothams the local bakery just around the corner also very handy for dinner time) we also had other goodies and condiments available which went down well. We found Whitby to be a lovely little harbour we just wished we had a bit longer than four nights there. Considering we went just as lockdown was just easing we were pleasantly surprised with how much was open and found all the local restaurants very accommodating and friendly and of course the fish and chips were amazing. If you want a lovely break in a convenient location then this is for you, we would definitely like to visit again. Thankyou.
Mrs Eloise Johnson
Fabulous cottage with everything you could need. The cottage is in the centre of town and even though the owners provide free parking there is also a pay and display car park 100 yards away which was very reasonable. Ashben is very clean and has lots of extras, Amazon echo and phone chargers to name a few. We had the best time and would not hesitate to return, in fact we have already booked again for next year. The owners Sally and Graham are lovely. Thank you.
