    “A fab location for shops and public transport, a lovely little cottage.”

    Both staircases in the house are steep and winding, need to take extra care when using them. Kitchen and bathroom both modern and clean, although I think a blind or something up at the bathroom window would offer more privacy. The bedrooms and lounge were nice enough but definitely needed cleaning more thoroughly. As we left the property I stripped the beds and noticed some of the pillows need replacing. My son stayed in the top room and left his clothes in his bag so we didn't notice that ...

    Both staircases in the house are steep and winding, need to take extra care when using them. Kitchen and bathroom both modern and clean, although I think a blind or something up at the bathroom window would offer more privacy. The bedrooms and lounge were nice enough but definitely needed cleaning more thoroughly. As we left the property I stripped the beds and noticed some of the pillows need replacing. My son stayed in the top room and left his clothes in his bag so we didn't notice that there was actually a package with some new unopened pillows in the wardrobe, with several old pillows etc piled on top of them. As mentioned, cleaning definitely needed inside and around bedroom furniture.

The property

This Grade II Listed, homely cottage is situated in the heart of the old town conservation area of Whitby, offering a heart-warming retreat that has been designed with a family in mind, whilst still hosting some original and characterful features such as the stone floors and walls, and the rustic, painted beams.

Enter into the property and be welcomed into the open-plan living space where two sofas sit before the Smart TV and has board games for everyone to enjoy.

Gather around the dining table for a home-cooked meal or indulge in a takeaway, before planning the day’s events the next morning here while you tuck into a hearty breakfast.

Walk through to the kitchen which has dove grey units and sleek white worktops providing all the necessary appliances for home cooking.

Find the bedrooms laid out over the first and second floor, with a first-floor family room with a Double bed and Single bed, whilst the second-floor is home to a double bedroom, with both holding a range of furnishings for storage and sharing a large family shower room with deluxe fixtures and fittings.

Kiwi Cottage is one of the old yards off Church Street and is central for cafés, restaurants, shops, and galleries, and of course the wonderful Tate Hill Sands beach.

Whitby Abbey is at the top of the famous 199 Steps, and is well-known for inspiring Bram Stoker’s Dracula thanks to its eerie architecture.

Head down to Whitby Beach which is great for paddling, sunbathing, and crabbing if you’re feeling adventurous, and you might even find some fossils too.

Enjoy a guided walk through Whitby, or venture into one of the several interesting museums, like the Captain Cook Museum, Whitby Jet Museum, and the Whitby Museum at the nearby Pannett Park.

The park is lovely for strolling through, as well as hosting an excellent play area, great for the younger ones when the weather is fine.

There are plenty of boat trips to be enjoyed, offering a chance to see the beautiful coastline from the water, as well as the North Yorkshire Moors steam train running up to Pickering.

At the end of the day treat everyone to a classic Whitby fish and chips followed by a lemon top ice cream, to be enjoyed overlooking the sea, or in the comfort of your self-catered cottage.

Kiwi Cottage is the ultimate choice for a seaside break to one of North Yorkshire’s finest towns

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

WHITBY

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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
