Description

Anchors Down is a modern, ground floor apartment with an open plan living, dining and kitchen area and two comfortable bedrooms accommodating up to four guests. The view from the living room and master bedroom windows are amazing, looking out towards the viaduct, the River Esk and down towards Whitby. It is also perfect for watching the steam trains pass on the far side of the river as they set off to traverse the North York Moors National Park.

Anchors Down is in a fantastic location in the popular Whitehall Landing complex just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town but only a short walk from everything the town has to offer. Famous for its links to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Whitby is home to a variety of festivals and events all year round including the famous Goth Weekenders, Steam Punk Festivals, a Regatta and many more. The town boasts many bars and restaurants from traditional fayre to bistro style eateries, tea rooms and lots of live music. There’s also an old town dating back to the 1800s with many independent shops and 3 miles of golden sandy beach stretching along the coast to the sought after seaside village of Sandsend. The neighbouring, traditional seaside resort of Scarborough is less than 20 miles away with its waterpark, open air theatre, Peasholm Park, Sealife Centre, cliff top castle and two huge bays.

There are many hidden gems dotted along Yorkshire’s historic coastline to explore such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Filey. Head inland to the walled city of York, only an hour away, explore the North York Moors National Park and take advantage of the many walkways and cycleways in the area, or just enjoy unspoilt beauty that is right on your doorstep. There is so much to see and do in the area that one visit is never enough. Beach ½ mile. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

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.
