Stylish townhouse with smart furnishings and outside space in a superb central location A gorgeous townhouse, newly refurbished with great attention to comfort, style and detail with a stunning large house bathroom, that gives it a wow factor, plus an enclosed small courtyard area and a great location - within just a five to ten minute stroll, you're at the harbour and centre of Whitby town.

Beautiful House

Real Home from home. Will recommend to family and friends. Been coming to Whitby over 30 years and one of the best places we have stayed, a credit to the owners. Hope to come back soon X




This smart townhouse has been lovingly refurbished to create a beautiful seaside property and a wonderful choice for holidaymakers wanting something stylish, with a great location near the harbour, beach and Whitby's town centre with its quaint shops, award-winning restaurants, charming tea rooms and heritage sites.


A small enclosed terraced area to the front has steps to the door. The entrance hall leads to the sitting room, which has a comfortable sofa and arm chairs, Smart TV/DVD, chandelier, a feature wall in brick work, real-flame effect fire and very funky wall radiators! Great attention to detail has been paid to the decor, from the rug, Roman blind and accessories, which feature jewelled and coordinating colours, creating a perfect spot to relax at the end of a day after exploring the coast's many treasures, wandering Whitby's cobbled streets or sunbathing on the golden beach!


The dining room has wall-to-ceiling cupboards providing storage including an integrated fridge/freezer adjacent to the kitchen. The colours are duck egg blue with accents of copper including three wonderful drop lights over the table and seating, designed to enjoy meals together, whether it's breakfast discussing what to do or recapping the activities over supper. The dining area has a wall-mounted Smart TV/DVD.

The dining area also has a window seat - that stores a selection of board games and DVDs to enjoy - overlooking the enclosed, decked rear courtyard garden, perfect for morning coffee at the start of another wonderful day at the coast.


We love the kitchen which echoes the colour scheme of the dining room; it's well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine/dryer. The ironing board and iron are housed in a tall cupboard in the adjacent dining area.


There is a useful ground floor WC and cloaks area.


Open the door at the head of the stairs and be taken aback by the most wonderful and very spacious bathroom with dark green glossy tiles, a double size walk-in shower, free-standing bath, Victorian-style with high cistern WC and hand wash basin plus chandeliers and ornate over-basin mirror. We also love the art deco table, containing toiletries for guests to enjoy. It's so elegant and charming that you'll want to draw a bath, add some bubbles, sink down and relax!


It is a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom with two doors, one of which leads to the sumptuous master bedroom. This has a superb 5' king size mahogany bed, with a deep mattress for extra comfort plus bedside cabinets and lamps, wardrobe and a Smart TV.


At the top of the stairs is a bookshelf with a small library of books for guests to enjoy and exchange if desired.


The second floor has two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. The first bedroom that faces the rear of the house has a double size bed (4'6") decorated most charmingly with nautical-style decor in blue and white with a porthole mirror, crisp navy and white bed linens and beach-inspired accessories. There are bedside tables, bedside lights and a double wardrobe.


The master bedroom on this floor has a 5' king size brass bed, bedside tables, a large wardrobe and TV. The en-suite in this room is wonderfully appointed with WC, hand wash basin and a thermostatic shower, guaranteed to refresh. From this bedroom, there is also a fabulous view of the iconic Whitby Abbey on the headland.






Located in a quiet area of Whitby this fabulous townhouse is a five minute stroll to the town centre amenities including chic restaurants, bars, pubs, tea rooms super market and shops. The golden beach and harbour, with its award-winning restaurants, elegant bars and renowned fish and chip restaurants, are nearby with the 'old town' of Whitby - with its cobbled streets, famous 199 Steps - worth the climb for the view! - and the iconic Whitby Abbey - a ten minute stroll.

Beautiful house 200m from the centre of Whitby. Accommodation had everything you need for a relaxing stay. Everything done to an excellent standard. We stayed over the Christmas period & all decorations and added extras were there to make a wonderful homely feel. We used both rooms, front room for watching films and the dining room for family games as well as eating. We managed to park outside & while parking wasn't plentiful there were spaces available in surrounding streets.
Mr Oconnor
Excellent property with everything you need. The house is decorated beautifully (a credit to the owners). Plenty of space in-which to relax and forget about the day-to-day troubles. We had a great time in Whitby and will be visiting again soon.
Mr Maddocks
A superb property. Well thought out design. See Glympse was an ideal property for my family and I. This was a belated 30th birthday treat for my daughter that had been delayed due to Covid ( now 32).My first holiday with my first grandchild. Overall made our stay in Whitby memorable. 5 stars!! Thank you.
Mr Clark
Fabulously decorated, very clean and with everything you could want provided. Parking is difficult but out of owners control. Loved the welcome pack.
Mrs Blanshard
Loved this holiday home. It was very good.
Mrs Holland
The information regarding the property position was accurate. It was stated that the house was 10 minutes from the beach however this wasn't accurate it was 10 minutes to the harbour and another 10 minutes to the beach. Also it stated there's parking for one car this wasn't the case there was never space on the street we paid £9 x2 (as we went in 2 cars) per day to park the car in the long stay car park. An additional cost of £63 (1car) which we hadn't budgeted for.
Mrs Briggs
Beautiful house in the heart on Whitby, the house had everything you could ask for and much much more. We would definitely book the house again. The only con I have is the parking which was quite an issue.
Miss Jennings
Excellent holiday cottage with lots of character. Had everything you need for a holiday stay, and everything worked. Great use of space with the little en suite at the top. Good storage. Comfortable beds. Blackout blinds a must in midsummer, and the fans in the rooms were appreciated. We did sleep with windows shut so as to not hear the gulls quite so loud! I think there must have been soundproofing as once the windows were closed we couldn’t hear much at all. Lovely view to the Abbey from the top floor. Be warned of steep stairs - to be expected in this type of house but those with young children or mobility impairment should be warned.
Mrs Elliott
Lovely house. Very well equipped and great location. Only criticisms are cooker needs a good clean and parking is difficult. Had a great stay though
Mrs Smithies
Everything you could possibly need and more, well decorated, well laid out and stunning bathroom. So so clean and everything is quality down to the bed sheets. Can't reccomend highly enough!
Mr Pace
The property is finished to a high standard and is very comfortable and cosy. We had no problems parking right outside the property and the location is ideal very central. I would definitely recommend.
Mrs Kerins
Absolutely brilliant stay in see glympse the house is quality though out finishing to a high standard with everything catered for and only 5 min stroll to station inn defo be back
Mr Townrow
Excellent location and really nice, well appointed property.
Mr Lawrie
Everything was perfect
Mrs Wright
The house was beautiful we had a wonderful stay. Only problem was parking but don't let that put you off this lovely house quite location but minutes walk from whitby centre
Mrs Ennew
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at See Glympse. The house is extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. The situation is great as it's not in the middle of Whitby which was very busy but still only takes about 10 minutes to walk to the centre.
Mrs Wigmore
We felt the floors were not clean. Under the sofa was dirty and our socks were dirty walking about (we don’t wear shoes in the house at home) parking was a bit trickier than stated ans the garden court yard was tiny! I think if these things were addressed or explained more it would have been ideal The house however was beautiful and had everything you could ever need and more! Lovely little extra touches
Mrs Bull
Excellent location with parking surprisingly not difficult for Whitby. The accommodation was excellent quality and well stocked. The only slight problem is one of the bedroom doors on the top floor would not shut properly.
Mr Bailey
A beautiful house done to a high standard everything you could need is provided and is of a high quality hilly 10 minute walk up to the house from the centre but that is to be expected in Whitby . Parking is one a first come first served basis we had 3 cars to park and actually managed it in the surrounding streets even after we had been out for the day but that was just luck I could see it being a problem at times . The house is 3 storey the stairs could be a problem for some . We had a very comfortable stay and would recommend See Glympse the house on the whole was clean but under sofas and furniture in the living room and on top of wardrobes were dusty which stopped it getting full marks for cleanliness. I’m not sure who this point refers to wether it’s the owners , the management company or Sykes Cottages but the long list of to do’s before you leave I found a little annoying . I would always always leave a house tidy on leaving but to be told to strip all the beds and put everything in bags is a bit cheeky we paid a lot of money to stay there a service is being provided I’m on holiday to get away from all that I have never been asked that before .
