    “We had a lovely weekend at Baxtergate and thoroughly enjoyed the central location.”

    However we found that the house was very under-resourced with equipment. Considering that the property sleeps 8 people, there were only 4 wine glasses and 4 egg cups and not enough mugs or table glasses for a group of 8. There were a large number of champagne glasses but sadly these are not overly practical for everyday use. The pans were all small and hard to fit in enough food for 8 people and there were no baking dishes which meant we had to buy one over the weekend to cook what we needed ...

    However we found that the house was very under-resourced with equipment. Considering that the property sleeps 8 people, there were only 4 wine glasses and 4 egg cups and not enough mugs or table glasses for a group of 8. There were a large number of champagne glasses but sadly these are not overly practical for everyday use. The pans were all small and hard to fit in enough food for 8 people and there were no baking dishes which meant we had to buy one over the weekend to cook what we needed to. There was no salt and pepper in the property or tea or coffee. It was strange that there were no bedside lights or bedside tables so that you couldn't read in bed easily. One of the bathroom showers had a leak which made it hard to use. The use of automatic lighting in the corridors made it feel like student accommodation and overall the house felt quite sterile - there were no pictures on the wall anywhere. Whilst these might seem like small points, they made the accommodation feel basic. We have stayed in many rented houses during our lifetime and sadly, Baxtergate was a lower quality than most. Overall, whilst the location is great I would hesitate to recommend Baxtergate as a comfortable house to stay in.

The property

Enjoying a prime location in the centre of the popular port town of Whitby, is this fabulous, four-storey, semi-detached property, 47 Baxtergate, boasting original and historic features.

Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, 47 Baxtergate is both tucked away and at the centre of the action, making it ideal for a fun-filled yet relaxing break to the North Yorkshire coast.

From the street, head down the yard and to the front door, stepping into the hall and finding a spacious and contemporary kitchen/diner to your left.

With a range of high-quality appliances and a refreshing colour scheme, you can gather around the long table with bench seating, finding a further dining area off the main space, and a utility room leading to an amazing cloakroom, unique for the original brick fireplace and deep stone basin above a firepit, at one time used for washing.

Across the hall to the right is the elegant sitting room, with a large corner sofa and jade green armchairs to relax on, you can enjoy watching the wall-mounted TV, or if there's a pianist in the group, enjoy a tune on the upright piano in here.

Take the stairs to the first floor to find two bedrooms and a shower room, comprising a double and a twin, with the second floor boasting an identical layout, all featuring plenty of storage and some with ornate, original fireplaces.

Completing the layout is the third-floor snug, accessed with care due to the restricted head height, it is home to soft seating with a footrest, a TV and electric Velux windows illuminating the room, with a handy cloakroom up here too so you don't have to go back down the stairs.

Bring your friends or family together at 47 Baxtergate to enjoy a fabulous stay in Whitby.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1061692, together sleeping 14 guests.

Baxtergate Cottages

Baxtergate Cottages are two long-standing and characterful properties, found right in the heart of Whitby, making a wonderful base for a North Yorkshire beachside break with family or friends. Both accessed from a main street then down a quiet yard, Baxtergate Cottages have the benefit of being both at the centre of the action, as well as feeling tucked away from everything. The larger of the two is 47 Baxtergate, spread over four floors, this impressive townhouse sleeps eight guests and combines a mixture of rustic original and contemporary style, with unique features like the exposed stone walls lighting up, and a historic stone basin and firepit beneath in the ground-floor cloakroom. 47A Baxtergate is more of a duplex apartment, accessed from the first floor after two small flights of stone steps, it sleeps six guests and presents an open-plan living space with all the modern comforts, with a first-floor bedroom, and two further bedrooms found up the narrow, steep staircase reminiscent of the property's past. To access the delights of Whitby, simply step out onto the street and find something around every corner, with a great selection of restaurants all around to sample delicious, freshly caught seafood, along with traditional inns and pubs, and of course the famous Whitby fish and chips! Head down to the shores of Whitby Beach for a day of fun on the sands, with Blue Flag awarded waters to paddle in, fascinating rock pools to explore and brightly coloured beach huts and chalets to hire and admire! Visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum to learn about the famous explorer's life, take the 199 Steps up the commanding and eerie Whitby Abbey, offering fantastic views over the town and out to see, and enjoy being guided through a spooky story at the Dracular Experience explaining the town's connection to Bram Stoker's famous character. Browse the boutique shops and quirky streets, picking up souvenirs and trinkets along the way, or stretch your legs further with a walk along the coast, or better still, venture into the amazing North York Moors National Park for a whirlwind of breath-taking scenery, fresh country air and quaint villages. Secure your stay at Baxtergate Cottages for your next adventure to the Yorkshire coast in Whitby.
