  • Mr

    “Off road parking - Perfect for car.”

    Enclosed garden - Perfect for Dog. Lovely house which was perfect for us and just a 10/15 minute stroll into town. Would have no issues with recommending this as a base for a holiday in Whitby.

The property

Resting in the popular seaside town of Whitby, close to the bank of the River Esk, is Helredale Retreat, a welcoming mid-terrace cottage, close to the attractions and harbour of Whitby, as well as the magnificent rural landscape of the North York Moors National Park, making it ideal for a couple or family wanting to explore the best of the coast and countryside that North Yorkshire has to offer.

The property boasts off-road parking for two cars, and once you have parked up, head inside the property to find a welcoming living/dining room, with a large sofa to relax onto as you enjoy your favourite shows on the wall mounted Sky TV, or choose to curl up on the armchair beside the gas fire with a good book, while the dining table offers a perfect spot to enjoy meals together and make plans for the remainder of your stay.

The well-equipped kitchen boasts all of the appliances to enable you to cook delicious home-cooked meals, while the utility offers a washing machine and tumble dryer, for added convenience.

The ground floor hosts the family bathroom, which offers a choice of bath and separate shower, while upstairs you will find the two good-sized bedrooms, comprising a king with an en-suite shower room and a duplex room with double bed on the bottom and single on top, catering to a variety of guests.

Spend time in the enclosed back garden, where your four-legged friend can stretch its legs as you sit out in the morning sun with a cup of coffee, before you venture into town to explore your surroundings.

Head into the bustling town centre to find a network of meandering streets and hidden alleyways, filled with charming shops, as well as a great selection of pubs and restaurants, all within easy reach.

Stroll alongside the River Esk towards the coast, where you can find the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, the famous 199 steps, which take you up to the magnificent remains of the Gothic abbey, thought to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula, and boasts wonderful coastal views from the top.

Walk along East Pier towards Whitby Harbour East Lighthouse, looking out to sea, and cross Whitby Bridge to the other side of town, where you will find the sandy beach, here you can enjoy fresh fish and chips, avoiding the seagulls, and the children can enjoy a donkey ride along the sand.

There is a second pier and lighthouse to stroll along, the two being separated by the mouth of the River Esk, along with the RNLI Museum, Whalebone Arch attraction and Dracula Experience guided walking tour, while boat tours are plentiful and take you out to sea, hopefully to spot a whale or two.

Travel along the coast towards Robin Hood's Bay to visit the National Trust-owned Old Coastguard Station, as well as a local history museum, while further south down the coast brings you to the iconic coastal resort of Scarborough, home to an imposing medieval castle that overlooks the town, as well as two superb stretches of golden sandy beaches at North Bay and South Bay, popular with families and small children.

Walkers can relish in a lovely coastal walks along the Cleveland Way, while cyclists will find a host of cycle routes to enjoy, including the old railway to or from Whitby.

Venture into the North York Moors National Park and hike through rolling countryside, passing several picturesque waterfalls along the way.

With a host of attractions in easy reach and wonderful coastline to explore, Helredale Retreat is a wonderful base from which to explore North Yorkshire.
