**NEW** A beautiful holiday cottage with gorgeous decor, ideally located in a quiet residential spot in the heart of Whitby, with shops and restaurants nearby and the harbour and beach a five minute walk.

Boasting a wood burning stove and outside space, it’s perfect for a family or group of friends wanting something special.   Really thoughtfully decorated and equipped and lovingly decorated in muted seaside-inspired shades of duck egg blues, off whites, yellows and greys, this is a truly pretty cottage with such a lovely atmosphere – it feels like home.

Beautiful cottage with gorgeous decor – the shops, restaurants and beach are a few minutes’ walk away




Enter into this beautiful period cottage into a small hallway with a black and white tiled floor; turn right into the good size sitting room which has comfortable sofas and armchairs, book shelves, a wonderful brick fireplace housing a wood burning stove – it’s so lovely to cosy up in front of! – plus a TV/DVD.

Double glass doors take you into the superb, stylish kitchen which is very well-equipped and has an electric oven, an electric induction hob, dishwasher and tall fridge-freezer.  Very spacious, there’s a lovely armoire and table and chairs to comfortably seat six people – it’s a lovely room and provides a great spot to sit and have a glass of wine whilst preparing supper.

The kitchen leads to a useful rear hallway with storage for shoes and beach equipment and doubles as a utility room with a further sink, washing machine/dryer.

There is also a convenient wet room on the ground floor near the rear entrance – perfectly located for a nice long hot shower when the family comes in after a sandy day on the beach! – plus a WC and hand wash basin.


This floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom.  The double bedroom has a white metal bed with a comfortable mattress, a chest of drawers, wardrobe and a TV with integral DVD player.   There is a further bedroom that will be featuring full size bunk beds (currently showing as a single bed) which has good storage with a closet and a dressing table.

The immaculate house bathroom is a good size and comprises a bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and hand wash basin.


The landing has a table, lamps and a mirror.

The master bedroom is large with a deep, comfortable double bed, bedside tables with good lighting if you like to read before lights out, dressing table with stool and an easy chair; the original beams give the room great character.

A very charming single bedroom is adorned with bunting and has the original wood panelling, a sweet full size 3′ single bed, bedside table, chest of drawers and a walk-in closet.


To the front is a pretty, flagged, enclosed courtyard garden with table and chairs, providing a lovely spot to sit and take a moment over coffee when you rise or for enjoying pre-dinner drinks or a nightcap.

To the rear is space that can park a small car or otherwise provides a useful courtyard that can be enclosed.

Whitby Harbour

Go crabbing- a favourite pastime – from the harbour or simply watch the sun go down over the old town – especially nice over a glass of something chilled!  Enjoy a boat ride around the bay including a sunset cruise up the coast to Sandsend.

The kitchen is lovely at this property; plenty of space. YCC office staff so helpful. Excellent website and telephone service. OUr 6 year old graddaughter loved the bunk beds and all the games. Last year we enjoyed excellent scones at Dotty's Tea Rooms, tried this time but could not get in - best to get there early! Runswick Bay very pretty, enjoyed a walk around the village. Would definitely return to the cottage. Best accommodation and location yet.
