Description

This Victorian, end-terraced townhouse, with views over the harbour and up to the abbey, has been completely transformed into a wonderful holiday home. The quality of the furnishings and workmanship are sure to leave a lasting impression. Even from the outside, this property stands out with its glass balcony, which is in the prime position for you to enjoy views over the town. Stepping inside, the ground floor has a well-equipped open plan kitchen/dining area, making this the perfect place to entertain friends and family in an evening over a home cooked meal, perhaps even sampling some of the freshly caught local seafood. All of the furnishings have been chosen for their aesthetics and comfort, with no expense spared to provide an opulent welcome.
Throughout the property there are original canvas paintings of some of the nearby beauty spots, as well as thoughtful personal touches adding character and charm. On the first floor is living room with a wood burner, the perfect place for a cosy night in. You also have the most beautiful bathroom, complete with a TV in the mirror, so that you can lie back and relax in the steamy slipper bath while watching your favourite shows. On the top floor are two bedrooms; the twin bedroom has bespoke handmade furniture and leading from the master kingsize bedroom is a balcony where you can and take in those unforgettable views. You can share a bottle of wine together and have a romantic evening rendezvous under the stars, with the illuminated abbey watching over the town as the lights glisten on the harbour.
The location of Abbey View is wonderful, and coffee shops, eateries, traditional pubs, and the famous swing bridge are just a 5-minute stroll away. Whitby draws in visitors from around the world. The town has the famous 199 steps up to the abbey (where Bram Stoker’s beast fled the shipwreck in the novel ‘Dracula’), as well as the old cobbled back streets with a plethora of shops, eateries and traditional bars. The beach stretches for miles, as far as the beautiful little village of Sandsend, with golden sand, rock pools and fossil hunting to enjoy. Captain Cook’s ship, the Endeavour, is now moored up in Whitby, and steam trains run into the nearby North York Moors National Park towards ’Aidensfield’, featured in the TV show ‘Heartbeat’. There is always something happening in Whitby, from Goth festivals to live music and regattas. Keep an eye on the busy year-round calendar to see what’s happening during your holiday.
There are many hidden coastal gems along the Yorkshire Coast, from picturesque Runswick Bay to Staithes, each with its own story of piracy and smugglers. The famous Cleveland Way snakes along the coastline, and the Cinder Track drops down into Robin Hood’s Bay for a leisurely stroll; or take a tourist boat out for maybe a glimpse of dolphins and seals that frequent our coastline. Nearby Scarborough is a traditional seaside resort and has many attractions for families including a waterpark, Sea Life Centre and Peasholm Park, as well as the two large bays. Further afield is the theme park, Flamingo Land, and the walled city of York with its Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum, minster and a myriad of shops and bars, all within the city walls. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

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.
