A well-appointed, one bedroomed cottage resting within the centre of Whitby. Coastal location. WiFi. Scarborough 19.8 miles.

Wonderful little place in a perfect location and it felt very homely

Beautifully decorated and the views! Lovely break



3 Flowergate Walk is an outstanding, one bedroomed cottage resting within the centre of the bustling seaside town of Whitby. This spacious accommodation comes with breath-taking views of the town’s wonderful surroundings, ensuring a superb base for a couple seeking a refreshing break to this part of North Yorkshire.

After an action-packed afternoon head up the staircase to the first-floor to be welcomed into a well-equipped dwelling, containing everything you could possibly need for a getaway to the coast. Here you will find a well-equipped kitchen which benefits from all the quality appliances required to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal, or pack a picnic to take to the beach. Enjoy your evening meals within the brightly decorated sitting/dining room, where the large windows offer picturesque views to admire as you tuck into your delicious meal. After dinner, flick on the Smart TV or indulge with a glass of wine in hand as you get lost within a good book. As the evening draws to a close, retire to the night’s embrace to the well-presented double bedroom, designed with ample storage and space for your personal belongings. If you can tear yourself away from this romantic hideaway, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of amenities to suit all tastes and requirements.

Look forward to sampling the famous Whitby fish and chips, or for a more formal occasion dine at one of the seafood restaurants or visit Fortune’s, a traditional smokehouse. To keep you busy whilst here, venture to the sandy beach where you will find many watersporting opportunities, or brush up on the local history by visiting the Captain Cook museum or climb the 199 steps to the famous Abbey. 3 Flowergate Walk is the perfect base for a couple’s getaway to this part of North Yorkshire.

Guest Comments
Grays' Cottage was an excellent choice and I recommend the well-appointed house to anybody looking for good accommodation for one or two people in a quiet central location! I will be going back there again.
Mr John
What a fantastic little cottage right in the heart of Whitby. It was truly a home from home and very well equipped. The only issue we had was the lack of lighting when approaching the cottage ( to be fair not the owners responsibility) through the gates, so make sure you have a phone/ torch in the winter months. Would definitely recommend to friends
Mrs Crawford
If you want a high spec property in the centre of Whitby .also very quiet and great views of the abbey.Grays Cottage is the one for you.
Mr Berry
This is an excellent property for a number of reasons, including being very central, and perfectly spacious for two, being spread over two floors, even including a (small) separate dining room. Nice view up to the abbey. I’m afraid I don’t understand the previous comment about needing “extensive updating”; everything looked fresh and clean, no damage to furniture or marks on walls, nice bedlinen and towels. Kitchen is small and U-shaped, but well thought out and equipped if you wanted to self-cater. The only issue arose with the Freeview box which was not connected when we arrived and which we could not get to work. However, I would reiterate one of the points from another reviewer, that this property would not be suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties, due to two factors. The first is the stairs in the property. The second is the horrendous parking problem in Whitby. The problem is not with the provided scratch card, but lies in finding a “W” space (the only permitted category) to use it. We ended up touring round at the end of the day before eventually finding a space, which can be a considerable distance from the property. Finally, Sykes please take note as follows: 1. The access instructions mention the TSB branch, which no longer exists so the reference should have been deleted; 2. The access and drop-off instructions suggest pulling up temporarily in front of Poundland (which has double yellow lines) or on street (which is a disc zone, restricted to residents). There is no mention of the obvious alternative, which is the public car park behind Poundland. Yes, it will cost you £1.70 for an hour (not if you arrived in the evening) but believe me it’s worth it. So, great property, great stay, poor arrival instructions.
Mr Rodgers
This is our second visit and the cottage was lovely. The updated bathroom was an improvement on last year. However, we will not be staying again because of the enormous price increase. To charge between £800 and £1000 for this property it would need extensive updating and even then, it is very small. The ludicrous increase is a shame.

Great location, fabulous views. Had a lovely stay.
Mrs Turner
The cottage was absolutely stunning. It far exceeded our expectations. The views from the cottage were exceptional . It was was extremely clean and Comfortable. Everything in there was compact which made the room space better. We both slept extremely well in the oh so comfortable large bed. The location was brilliant but I would say if you had mobility issues , this is not the place for you. We had an issue with the tv which was resolved in a matter of hours, the owner of the cottage was extremely helpful once she was made aware of the issue . The only downside of this booking is the time we were allowed to check in. It was 5 pm , which made it very difficult , if not impossible to park with the free scratch cards given to us as part of the booking. It would be better if Sykes cottages sent clients the parking passes to home addresses prior to travelling, that way, people would have a chance of a parking space. We ended up paying on a 24 hour car park , quite a way away from the accommodation until a few days after we arrived.
Mr Glynn
Problem with TV had to phone office several times was not resolved Had to wait over 40 minutes for someone to answer your phone can you please contact me as I wish to raise a complaint re this.
Mr Dargan
Great location, lovely place and great views, will be back!
Mr Jordan
Great position, fantastic views. The cottage was well-equipped, some nice touches (sun loungers in the shed etc.) and the bed comfortable. However, the kitchen and bathroom could have been a little cleaner on arrival (black mould around bath, dust on edges of the tiles etc.). The worst thing was the lack of a bin, though. It was inconvenient and frankly a little embarrassing to have to use a public bin by the pound shop when we wanted to dispose of the rubbish bags. There are clearly bins at the property, but they were inaccessible. Everything else was fantastic.
