    “Located in a perfect location.”

    Great sized property. Love the view and balcony was such a bonus. A real Gem. Had a great holiday were there was no need to drive anywhere and you just go straight out to walk everywhere. Very quiet even though you’re in the centre of Whitby. Attention to cleanliness as it’s not up to how it is expected on holiday cottages. If I was there for a week I would’ve given it a deep clean myself. That said I would definitely book here again due to location, size and the balcony. Beds were really ...

    Great sized property. Love the view and balcony was such a bonus. A real Gem. Had a great holiday were there was no need to drive anywhere and you just go straight out to walk everywhere. Very quiet even though you’re in the centre of Whitby. Attention to cleanliness as it’s not up to how it is expected on holiday cottages. If I was there for a week I would’ve given it a deep clean myself. That said I would definitely book here again due to location, size and the balcony. Beds were really comfortable too ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ still given it 5 stars as the only negative was the cleaning of it, and that’s just because, your only on holiday, it doesn’t actually stop you from doing anything. Thank you for making it a really happy family holiday.

    I am so pleased you overall enjoyed your stay . I am disappointed the property was not cleaned correctly. I have had a word with the housekeeping team and asked for improvements to be made on an ongoing basis . We have also carried out a ‘ spring clean’ this week. Property Owner

The property

River Forge is duplex apartment set in an enviable position, overlooking the marina in the historic port of Whitby.

Set over three floors, this light and spacious property is perfect for family groups to enjoy time together in this popular and lively seaside resort.

Entry is via internal stairs that take you up to the spacious L-shaped sitting room, with large picture windows that open onto a balcony.

With stunning panoramic views over the marina, guests can relax and drink in the view, from where you will see brightly coloured boats bobbing up and down in the harbour.

In late afternoon the sun shines across the water and there are superb sunsets to enjoy; just imagine sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine on a balmy summer's evening.

With ample seating and a large dining area in the sitting room, there is plenty of space to spread out.

The well-equipped kitchen is to the rear and opens onto a steep shared terraced garden, with steps that lead up to a seating area and shed, again glorious views for the more energetic!

The four pleasant bedrooms are set over the top two floors, one with an en-suite shower room, whilst the family bathroom is on the first floor and an additional shower room on third floor.

The property benefits from private parking in the garage below, a rare find in Whitby, and there's free parking directly opposite the apartment.

Although in the heart of Whitby, the apartment is on the quieter side of the harbour, but a short walk brings you into the hustle and bustle of this charming town.

With the shops and amenities all at hand, you are ideally placed for exploring the quaint, narrow streets, the cobbled marketplace and Whitby's many restaurants and pubs.

Enjoy a cocktail in a harbourside bar, or partake in afternoon tea in one of the many tea rooms.

Whitby has much to offer, with its 199 steps leading up to the Abbey, museums, including Captain Cook memorial museum, and the pretty gardens in Pannett Park.

Alternatively, why not book a nighttime ghost walk, or a whale watching trip?

With the beautiful scenery of the North York Moors to discover nearby and numerous coastal and inland villages to visit, River Forge provides an ideal base, at any time of the year.

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.
