Situated just off the cobbled Market Square, in the centre of Whitby Old Town just yards from quaint shops, restaurants, pubs and the beach, this is a superb period property. This wonderful four bedroom period cottage was build in 1620 and is full of character; located in the heart of Whitby’s old town, just off the charming cobbled Church Street - with its quaint shops, tea rooms and historic market square - it's close to the harbour, beach and restaurants. With wonderful original features such as beams, magnificent panelling and mullioned windows, Borough House is a great choice for family holidays or for get-togethers for groups of friends.

A very comfortable house in a perfect location. Very, very clean with an excellent layout. In a very private location but also very central. Superb communal areas and decor is outstanding. Borough House is a superb place to stay in an amazing location. Very close to The Abbey Wharf and Black Horse which are also superb.

One of the best holidays we have ever had. The house is fantastic, unusual and full of character. Very cosy and lovely being right on the main street, yet so quiet! The boys loved being so close to the beach. 10/10
