Description

A delightfully modern, end-terrace townhouse, situated in the lovely town of Whitby. Located just a short, riverside walk from all the town's amenities and the charming sea front, this contemporary accommodation boasts four bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and two sitting rooms, making the property ideal for both groups of friends and family alike. The surrounding area offers a good variety of east coast attractions to explore, including Robin Hood's Bay with its quaint streets and alleyways and nearby Scarborough. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a day at the beach, a trip into town or the chance to take in the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors. A great property providing the ideal base at any time of year!
Whitby is one of the most popular locations in North Yorkshire. Situated close to the River Esk it spans up the coast amongst some of the region's finest scenery. The town is rich with historical landmarks and the coastal waters give way to fossils which you can dig up on your own or buy from local vendors. The well-preserved architecture, such as Whitby Abbey, has appeared in some very famous movies and television series. Now lying in ruins, Whitney Abbey is a local landmark that towers almost two hundred steps above the historic St. Mary's Church. Local lore speculates that Dracula himself was laid to rest on the church grounds. In addition to the Abbey, the town itself has a large amount of shopping, fine dining, and theatres to keep you occupied during your tour of this lovely seaside resort.

Very good
‘2 families stayed together in this lovely cottage. There was plenty of room for all of us over 3 floors. Whitby is our favourite seaside town, and we stay every year. It is 15 minute walk into town which meant we couldn't just pop in if we had forgotten something but it is a pleasant enough walk so don't be deterred by this. Great for parking and a little park across from the house for those with young children. The kitchen is well stocked. Thank goodness there is a second lounge, to ship the teenagers in as the living room would be very cosy with everyone in it. My only grumble was the squeaky floorboards. Put a heavy sleeper in the downstairs bedroom as noise from the floorboards in the kitchen makes it impossible to have a lie in if other people are up. But don't let this stop you from visiting this cottage as it is lovley and modern.’

‘The Shipwrights had everything we needed close by. There was good parking right outside the front door, a lovely lounge where we could all sit and relax, and a good kitchen with a table large enough for us all to sit and craft. A lovely house we loved visiting.’

‘Service excellent. House spacious, well equipped, lots of unexpected extras, everything needed to cater for a house full of all ages. Location perfect for us with play area opposite and parking for two cars. We like South side of Whitby, only 5 mins quick walk away, flat route better for pushchair. Downstairs separate area ideal for young couple, ensuite perfect for us who paid the bill. Everyone, from the 2 year old to the 67 year old loved the decor, tasteful, yet out of harms way, carefully positioned for safety yet with maximum impact. The spacious living room, kitchen and corridors enabled the youngsters to let off steam despite the typical Whitby weather’

‘A well situated 'cottage' in a modern development a short distance from the town centre. Sitting near the river the area is quiet and has no through traffic and is ideal for supervised children (river1) with a small playpark diectly in front of the cottage. The cottage itself is very well appointed and well decorated throughout. Even for the most exacting individuals this place is absolutly superb. Roomy with a games room to let even the oldest child hide away for some fun. Well equiped modern Kitchen and very clean and tidy when we arrived. Loved the showers. An easy walk from the busy town centre and the Abbey it is a great base for travelling around the local area. The car parking also means that you don't have to battle with the traffic in Whitby! As it is on three levels it may not be suitable for guests who are a bit less mobile. This is a cottage I would recommend without hesitation and would be delighted to return to. The owners should be commended for the quality of the cottage.’
