Explorers Rest is an elegant third floor apartment, serviced by a lift from both the lobby and the private undercroft car park complete with cycle storage. Found in the heart of Whitby, this apartment is perfect for a romantic break away with the bonus of a delightful balcony.

This stylish apartment ticks all the boxes and is only a stride away from all of Whitby’s attractions and famous fish and chip restaurants.

Discover the stunning open plan living area; at one end lies the modern kitchen, appointed to with all the mod cons needed for a relaxing stay, including an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and even a washing machine, so you don’t have to bring your whole wardrobe!

Serve up a home cooked meal served at the contemporary dining table and chairs. After dinner, settle down in the lounge area on the sofa or armchair and tune into your favourite TV shows, or grab a refreshing drink and enjoy the last of sun from the private balcony. Wash away the day in the fully-tiled bathroom, offering a bath for luxurious soaks and a shower over for those quick rinses. After you’re feeling refreshed, climb into the sumptuous king-size bed, watch TV and begin dreaming about your next adventure.

When you’re ready to explore, you won’t have to walk far to find the historical streets of Whitby, which include many independent shops to browse and fabulous eateries to sample. Pack your seaside bag and head to the Blue Flag beach, ideal for an afternoon of sunbathing or why not test yourself at a new watersport? Climb the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey for spectacular clifftop views, or visit the Captain Cook Museum to read about the great explorer's adventures. Further afield, explore the delights of Scarborough, boasting the popular SEA Life aquarium and a water park, along with the stunning Scarborough Castle that lies right on the coast.

There's plenty to look forward to with a holiday at Explorers Rest, especially with the gorgeous North York Moors nearby for stunning walks and bike excursions.




This delightful third-floor apartment enjoys a prime position within walking distance to Whitby's bustling town centre and glorious beach at 0.3 miles away. Explorers Rest offers guests a welcoming interior with a TV with Freeview, a balcony with table and chairs so you can soak up the glorious views on offer and secure undercroft parking.

Guest Comments
We really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It was equipped with everything we could possibly need and spotlessly clean. The welcome hamper was very generous, the best we have ever received in a holiday property. There is just one issue we would like to raise. That is the constant noise, mainly in the bedroom, of what we assumed to be the immersion heater. I notice previous guests have commented on it in the guest book and they thought it was a ventilation system. We couldn't find any evidence of such a system or we would also have turned it off. We got used to it after a couple of days but it did keep us awake on the first night. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay and intend to book again when we next visit Whitby. Thank you. Susan & John.

This holiday rental was excellent. It was very well located for all parts of Whitby on foot. The accommodation was very clean well equipped and with a large comfortable bed. I am sure we will return.
Mrs Garrett
Beautiful property, well kept and thoughtfully equiped. Explorers rest is everything you could need in a holiday property. The welcome basket was such a lovely welcome after a long journey.
Mrs Brown
The apartment was fantastic it had everything we needed plus more. The garage was a bonus , the car stayed inside all week. We used local buses and did loads of walking to and from town. Whitby was always a day visit for us but the week we had was lovely. We would definitely book Explorers Rest if we were going back, and will recommend it to family and friends.
Mrs Thomson
A great apartment for couples, comfortably furnished, very well maintained and a really helpful host. It’s perfectly positioned for ease of traveling along the coast or into the moors by bus or train, leaving the car in the apartments secure parking. We had some amazing coastal and moor/dales walks and hope to go back again soon as there’s so much more to do there.
