Description

A gorgeous Georgian cottage, centrally located within easy walking distance of Whitby town centre and waterfront. Survey the picturesque pan-tiled rooftops of the town, as well as the harbour and rugged Abbey from your delightful roof terrace. Children will love the games room on the lower ground floor, a great space to chill out after active days at the beach.

This is a quality three-bedroom period cottage, refurbished to the highest standards. Its immaculate, stylish décor has previously featured in the Yorkshire Post and Your Home magazine.

Families and couples will appreciate its convenient West Cliff location, close to the beach, restaurants, grocery shops and Whitby's delightful waterfront. It is the perfect home from home and much-loved by guests who return year after year.

The entrance porch leads to a good-sized sitting room with solid wood floors, comfortable seating and an attractive brick fireplace with homely woodburning stove. A flat screen TV/Blu-ray DVD player, iPod docking station and Technics Hi-Fi system provide great entertainment, or simply chat and relax in this welcoming space. Stairs descend to the lower ground floor to a playroom with another TV plus an Xbox – perfect for keeping the kids entertained. There's also a handy tumble dryer in the basement.

The stylish fully-equipped kitchen with dining area makes a pleasant place to enjoy a meal together or perhaps play a board game and chat as you keep the cook company! There's a lovely view over the town. Quality wood work surfaces and characterful built-in benches, coupled with the tasteful coastal-inspired colours, give the kitchen a relaxed feel.

On the first floor is a superb king-size bedroom with built-in wardrobes and views overlooking the town; there is also a triple bedroom with lovely duck-egg blue decor and a stylish beach theme, with full-size solid wood bunks and a single bed.

The smart house bathroom incorporates a bath with shower over, basin, WC and heated towel rail.

Moving upstairs to the second floor, a master double with king-size bed boasts wonderful views of Whitby Abbey. Open the electric blind at the touch of a button. There's also an iPod dock alarm for your convenience. The luxury en-suite shower room with shower, basin and WC leads to a decked roof terrace with fabulous views. It comes equipped with furniture, including deckchairs, so that you can enjoy a glass of pre-dinner fizz as you watch the sun set – divine!

Outside is also a small courtyard that houses the wood storage and deckchairs.

The property is conveniently located for all the town centre attractions and visitors should check out the beach, award-winning restaurants and picturesque 'old town.' If you're feeling brave, head for The Dracula Experience and learn how Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker's Gothic masterpiece. 199 steps lead up to the Abbey and nearby St Mary's church – the climb is definitely worth it for the spectacular views.

Nearby fishing villages such as Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay and Runswick Bay are so pretty and the coastal walks along much of the heritage coast are sublime.

Your stay at Rooftops Cottage is sure to be full of memorable moments and great days out, there is so much to see in this beautiful part of the UK.
The ancient fishing port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, with its superb coastline and close proximity to the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.

‘This ‘holiday’ cottage is far from habitable even during ‘normal’ times. Considering you cannot access the property until 5pm due to extensive cleaning during COVID, this is far from the truth, it is filthy beyond belief. We spent time cleaning the kitchen ourselves but the filth continued upstairs to the bedroom and rooftop terrace. We complained to Sykes (to whom we had the contract with for the letting and paid directly to), they advised us to leave the property for a couple of hours whilst they sent the cleaners back in. We returned to find none of the issues had been dealt but there was a strong smell of bleach! The place was so bad, we could not stay even one night. Sykes have not accepted responsibility and insisted that we liaise with the owners however they will not disclose the owners details! We have lost just under £1,000’

‘DO NOT (and I cannot stress this enough) book this cottage/your holiday via Yorkshire Coastal Cottages. They're actually owned by Sykes Cottages. We booked this supposedly 5 cottage in Whitby called Rooftops Cottage, paying £1100 for 2 people/one week. On arrival, what we found was a shabby and dirty cottage in bad need of a thorough clean and full update. The furniture was old and stained, there was a bizarre hole in the lounge floor and the bed had sand and stains on the fitted sheet. The bed mattress also seemed very worn and was totally unsupportive. The guest book in the property contained lots of comments from previous disappointed customers too. We contacted Yorkshire Coastal Cottages (which we hadn't realised is just a branch of Sykes) & they were APPALLING. Simply forwarded our messages to the owner & then sent back her reply, saying we could leave by 10am the next morning & she'd refund us £600. So we'd be out £500 for staying one night of our holiday and having made a four hour journey?! I was genuinely astonished by their attitude and rudeness and total lack of effort to resolve the problems. I asked them to confirm WHEN the property had last been inspected and received its 5 rating but they refused to answer’
