The property

North York Moors and Coast locate this magnificent four-bedroom townhouse, The Railway Retreat, in the well-liked town of Whitby.

The Railway Retreat welcomes eight guests and two four-legged friends looking to soak up some quality family time in this lovely region of Yorkshire.

It boasts close proximity to the nearby amenities and beach, four immaculately presented bedrooms, and access to the stunning surroundings of the North York Moors National Park.

As you enter, you'll be astounded by the well-appointed kitchen/diner, which is home to an impressive array of appliances sure to help you prepare and cook scrumptious home-cooked meals for the entire family.

Sit down at the dining table before serving up a feast, along with a lovely bottle of fizz to celebrate a wonderful getaway with loved ones!

After dinner, treat yourself to a warm shower or a relaxing soak in the tub before finishing your routine and retiring to one of the four charming bedrooms, which include a king-size room with an en-suite bathroom, a double, a twin and a bunk bed, all of which can accommodate different kinds of sleeping arrangements.

If you can manage it, start your excursions at Whitby Abbey, the 199 Steps and, of course, Whitby Beach, a perfect place to idle away the hours resting, building sandcastles or paddling the shoreline.

Visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, take a leisurely stroll around Pannett Park, or see a performance at the Whitby Pavilion before refuelling with supper and drinks in one of the many amazing pubs, cafes, restaurants, and bars that are just waiting to be discovered.

When visiting the North York Moors National Park, enthusiastic hikers will be impressed by the variety of hiking and walking trails available, while history buffs may prefer to visit Mulgrave Castle, Byland Abbey, and Kilburn White Horse.

Yearsley Woods, Nunnington Hall, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway are also all within driving distance in this lovely area.

Spend the day in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Scarborough, Filey, or Bridlington instead for a diverse selection of attractions like SEA LIFE Scarborough, the Bridlington Sea Front, and the Saltburn-by-the-Sea Golf Club.

Pick The Railway Retreat for your upcoming journey in Yorkshire.

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.
