The property

This characterful Victorian property, White Horses, is located in the heart of Whitby, North Yorkshire, offering families of four a convenient base, close to eateries, shops, attractions, the beach, and the North York Moors National Park, whilst also enjoying elevated views from the second floor.

Reach the second floor before heading through your private entrance, leading onto the open-plan living space, adorning high ceilings, an ornamental fireplace, plush seating, and large bay windows with stunning views across the rooftops to Whitby Abbey, St. Mary's Church, the marina, and the white horses of the sea beyond the harbour walls.

Discover the kitchen/diner, where you can prepare and share meals as a group around the wooden table, before unwinding for the evening.

While the double bedroom at White Horses exudes nothing less than elegance, well-matched and brought together by coastal features, flowing drapes, and a peek of scenery, the second bedroom includes full-sized single bunkbeds intermingled with a touch of the seaside for a calm effect throughout.

The apartment comes with a roomy bathroom that is ideal for relaxing in after an adventurous day.

Families will find plenty to see and do on the doorstep, including dining at The Marine Bar & Restaurant, picking up some British favourites at Magpie Café, touring Whitby Abbey, lounging on the beachfront, climbing the 199 steps for the best view, or visiting the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, which is packed with historically significant artefacts and tales.

SEA LIFE Scarborough, the breath-taking Italian Gardens, Alpamare UK waterpark, and Scarborough Open Air Theatre, which hosts events all year long, are just a few of the seaside attractions that make Scarborough a must-see destination to add to your itinerary.

Explore the national park, which offers the finest of both the shore and the countryside, and all its popular places, such as Mallyan Spout Waterfall, Hole of Horcum, and The Old Coastguard Station, to cap off your experience.

Gather your loved ones at White Horses.

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

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.
