Description

Just a stone’s throw away from the centre of the historic town of Whitby, this Victorian, terraced, old ship officers townhouse dates back to 1868. It has been lovingly restored by the owner to a particularly high standard, and has been beautifully designed with tasteful décor and furnishings in every room. There are books, family games and brochures about Whitby for you to enjoy. With six bedrooms and five bathrooms, this property comfortably accommodates upto 12 guests, making it the perfect place for large families or a group sharing. The lounge has large windows, enabling you to take full advantage of the magnificent views over Whitby, the abbey, harbour and out to sea. A two minute walk will bring you into the hustle and bustle of the seaside town, with its quaint cobbled streets, numerous eateries and atmospheric harbour. Taste the wonderful fish and chips and work them off with an exhilarating cliff-top walk, or relax on the long sandy beach. Jump on the tour bus to make sure you don’t miss out on everything Whitby has to offer, or take a trip on one of the pleasure boats and enjoy a tour around the harbour and out to sea.
Discover the stunning scenery of the North York Moors and explore the spectacular coastline rich in fossils, and the famous Whitby Jet. Experience a trip on the famous North York Moors steam train, which is overlooked by the property, taking you from Whitby to the lovely market town of Pickering, stopping off at Goathland, otherwise known as Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. The lovely coastal resorts of Sandsend, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay are all within close proximity.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
