    “A lovely house with good facilities.”

    It was good to have decent sized towels provided for once. The kitchen was also well equipped. The house was in a good location and had an area where we could walk our dog close by.

The property

Quietly situated close to the centre of Whitby is this attractive, modern, terrace townhouse.

With light and airy accommodation, it is ideal for family groups or friends wanting to explore this wonderful historic seaside port and the numerous local attractions.

Set over three floors, there is a bright and sunny sitting room and a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, with the dining table in the middle - where you can sit and linger over a meal, a lovely sociable space.

From here, there are glimpses of the upper harbour and the railway line, where steam trains pass regularly.

Three of the bedrooms are on the second floor, one a charming king-size double with an en-suite shower room and plenty of storage, whilst the fourth bedroom lies on the ground floor, with a large shower room next to it.

With a family bathroom too, guests are well catered for.

A small conservatory with an additional TV provides plenty of space to spread out.

Doors open from here onto a sheltered rear enclosed courtyard and decked patio, perfect for relaxing in the sunshine with a morning coffee.

A gate here leads into a children's playground, where the younger members of the party can play safely; sure to be a big hit!

There is off road parking at the property, a big bonus and a rare find in Whitby.

A few minutes' walk brings you into the hustle and bustle of Whitby centre, with some excellent restaurants, quaint tea rooms and interesting shops to browse.

Wind your way through the quirky narrow streets, go down to the pretty harbour and into the cobbled market place.

From here, you can work up an appetite by climbing the 199 steps up to the Abbey and the beautiful St. Mary's Church, with breathtaking views along the coastline.

This is part of the Cleveland Way trail, where you can enjoy exhilarating cliff top walks.

Children will be delighted with the long sandy beaches, perfect for building sandcastles and going on donkey rides, while the brightly coloured beach huts can be rented on a weekly basis.

The surrounding area has something for everyone, whether it's discovering the pretty fishing villages of Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes, a trip on the steam railway, or having a fun-filled day out at Flamingo Land.

A splendid base for a varied and memorable holiday.

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

About the location


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.
