    “A fabulous holiday let.”

    Perfect for a family of four. Lovely to wake up to such a range of bird song . The cottage was warm and well equipped. Wonderful to have Netflix and Disney for the rainy days. The play park was perfect, we felt safe to let the children play. We made good use of the pool and laundry. The Cinder track was great, even our 5 year old was happy to walk into Whitby.

The property

This wonderfully appointed end-terrace cottage rests on the Captain Cook's Development on the River Esk, which meanders down to the harbour town of Whitby.

Engulfed by the stunning, heather-clad North York Moors, with walks from the doorstep and plenty of amenities to keep the whole family entertained, enjoy a quality break away-from-it-all.

This accommodation offers a lovely contemporary feel inside, with a living room boasting an open-plan layout.

Wrap around the electric fire on a chilly evening and unwind with a spot of TV and a hot drink warming your hands.

Then gather around the dining table for a tasty meal cooked up in the compact yet amply equipped kitchen next door.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are tastefully presented with ample storage space and a TV in the master double room.

Wake up to a refreshing shower each morning in the family bathroom.

Sit out on a sunny afternoon with your glass of wine and watch on as the kids play on the adventure park opposite, framed by the famous Esk Valley viaduct, which has 13 brick-built archways constructed to carry the Scarborough and Whitby Railway.

There is also a shared heated swimming pool on site for all the family to enjoy all year round.

The River Esk tidal beach is close by, where kids can paddle or enjoy kayaking.

On the other side of the river is the North York Moors Railway, with steam trains trundling along to Whitby or Pickering, experiencing 24 miles of picturesque Yorkshire scenery.

Alternatively, you can join a path and walk down the river to the harbour and famous 199 steps up to Whitby abbey.

There are some fantastic walks from the doorstep, including a 6-mile trail to Robin Hood's Bay, an old fishing village on the Heritage Coast.

The coastline then takes you all the way down to Scarborough with off-road walking, cycling trails and many more outdoor activities.

A coastal break with fun for all the family.

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.

Site is closed throughout January every year.
Note: The swimming pool will be closed from the End of October 2024 to the Start of February 2025.
