Immaculate throughout, this is perfect for exploring Whitby and the surrounding areas and is near the harbour, beach, shops and restaurants.

This place feels like home!

What a great place! Only downside is that I didn’t book two weeks!



Lower Ground Floor

To the lower ground floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom; both bedrooms – one is a double and the other is a good size twin bedroom – have patio doors to the terrace outside.

There is a superb house bathroom that has a bath, shower over, WC and hand wash basin.

Ground Floor

The entrance porch opens into a reception hall, flagged in Yorkshire stone, which is artfully lit with low level blue lights at night.

A few steps up from the reception hall leads to a spacious, open plan living space – a lounge area with TV/DVD and wonderful sea views, plus a dining area – perfect for enjoying meals together.

There is a smart well-equipped kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher, with plenty of work sufaces for preparing meals.  The ground floor also has a shower room – ideal for when you come off the beach! – plus a utility/laundry room with a washing machine and dryer.


The terrace has tables and chairs – where better to enjoy breakfast as you gaze out to sea or indulge in a nightcap, looking across the harbour at the Abbey, floodlit in the evening?



Fisherman’s Warehouse is located in the West Cliff area, not far from the famous whale bones; the property is a short walk from all the town centre amenities as well as the beach and harbour.

Airy, spacious and comfortable with a superb view

It’s in a quiet central location where we can nip out in any direction. Well equipped, clean and tidy, it served us well.

Great view from the living room - the impression we got from photos was that the window would be higher so we were pleased to enjoy the fabulous view - great surprise! Very friendly and helpful staff in the office, both on arrival and previously on the phone. Thank you. Great welcome pack also!
Micklethwaite Party
Welcome pack wonderful! Welcome by your staff lovely. Really enjoyed our stay. Perfect location, comfy, cosy cottage. Beds and pillows very comfortable. Spotlessly clean cottage. Kitchen sparkled! Lovely porch to dump all shoes, coats and boots! Would recommend Cinder Track walk to Robin Hood's Bay, May Beck Walk in Woods - lovely cafe half way. Magpie Cafe, Abbey Wharf, Moon and Sixpence - Happy Hour Cocktails - great atmosphere! Sanders Yard always pleases.
The Shaw Family
Great location and we used our car once only.

Ainsworth Party

Swinnerton Party
Fisherman's Warehouse was our first accommodation booked with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages. We had previously booked our twice yearly holidays in Whitby via another cottage company but the last couple of years had brought too many disappointments. So we decided to try your company as you appeared to offer a much higher standard of accommodation along with excellent service, We certainly weren't disappointed and this is the first time we loved a place so much we re-booked. Fisherman's Warehouse is airy, spacious and comfortable with a superb view. It's in a quiet central location where we can nip out in any direction. Well equipped, clean and tidy, it served us well. Having the second toilet/shower room was a bonus. Thank you too for the lovely goody bag and Easter Egg, much appreciated. We look forward to our return visit in October. Thank you for great service & accommodation.
