The property

Tyreman’s Return, 2 Abbey Inn Yard is a characterful Grade II listed 2 bedroom cottage steeped in history.

This traditional fisherman’s cottage dating from around 1760 is off ancient Flowergate, known as Floresgate in the Doomsday Book.

This quirky cottage offers contemporary living sleeping up to 4 people in a 3 storey property.

It is located in a convenient and quiet yard situated off Flowergate on the west side of Whitby.

There is a double bedroom on the first floor with a twin bedroom on the second floor.

The wrought-iron gate at the entrance to the yard is located next to the Yorkshire Building Society (formerly an old Inn known initially as The Old Abby Inn which existed from at least 1794).

Tyreman’s retains some lovely period features - the original beams, a working open Yorkshire Range ideal for those winter nights, sash windows and a coffin drop in the ground floor ceiling.

You enter Tyreman’s up two shallow steps into an open-plan living space.

Here there are two comfortable sofas in the lounge space, a flat screen TV with a DVD player and a mini sound system.

The focal point for the family is the open hearth fireplace.

A selection of paperbacks and DVD’s are provided.

The compact kitchen provides all modern appliances: an electric oven, microwave, fridge and an electric hob set in black granite.

In the dining area is a kitchen table with two settles seating 4 people.

Heating is gas central heating with radiators throughout.

One well-behaved dog is allowed to stay in the downstairs room but must not be allowed upstairs.

Through the door to a narrow and curved staircase leads to the first floor.

Here there is the charming double bedroom and a family bathroom.

The second floor has a spacious twin bedroom along the length of the house, this delightful room also has a TV and DVD player available.

The magnificent cruck beams do reduce headspace at the sides of the room, but the apex does provide standing room.

A stairgate is fitted should this be required.

The location of Tyreman’s Return is ideal for visiting the many and varied attractions that Whitby offers.

You can park outside Abbey Inn Yard for 1 hour using a parking disc for unloading.

Thereafter parking is available at St Hilda’s Terrace car park which is 5 minutes walk from the cottage, or Cliff Terrace or on West Cliff.

All are pay and display (free from November to March).

Just up from the cottage on Flowergate are two Parks – Little Park where dogs are permitted and Pannett Park housing a Local History Museum.

There are a variety of restaurants and cafes on Flowergate (and even a dog bakery!).

The quayside and swing bridge are at the foot of Flowergate where you meet the heart of Whitby and your adventure continues.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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 abundance of activity so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast.

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.

Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone.
