Description

Whitby 1 mile. A cosy, modern, end-terrace cottage, situated in a small development on the banks of the River Esk, on the edge of the seaside town of Whitby. Perfect for families wanting to explore the North York Moors and seaside resorts, the property provides an ideal base, with the added advantage of a communal indoor swimming pool. Overlooking the famous old railway viaduct, under which steam trains pass by, this delightful property has a comfortably furnished open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area. There are two comfortable bedrooms together with a family bathroom. Outside this lovely cottage there is a small private patio and a large, enclosed, communal garden with children's play equipment. The indoor swimming pool is sure to be a big hit with the children and ideal for a rainy day. Communal grounds lead down to the river banks, where you are likely to see otters, herons, ducks and the odd kingfisher. Seals also regularly swim up this stretch of the tidal estuary. Although just a 20 minute walk into the centre of Whitby, this is a tranquil spot and offers a peaceful environment after a busy day. At the top of the development, is the 23 mile long disused railway line, known as the 'Cinder Track', enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and your four legged friends. Popular Whitby has something for everyone, with its narrow cobbled streets, quaint tea rooms, good restaurants and trendy harbour bars. Walk the extensive sands to Sandsend to the north or tackle the 199 steps up to the majestic abbey, high on the cliffs above the town. The famous fish and chips are a must and then work them off by an invigorating walk on the Cleveland Way. The more adventurous may opt for a fishing trip or you may care to try whale-watching in season as Minke whales are regularly sighted just off the coast. The North York Moors are on the doorstep and the pretty coastal villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are a short drive away. Plenty to do for all the family at any time of the year.
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.

‘We thought we would try the north coast for a change and came across Waterside. I think whoever listed the property should revise the listing. This is not an end terrace property. Its quite small inside to say the least. The spiral staircase feels like it's about to collapse and great care must be taken going up or down. I would say not a place for kids because of the staircase. The best shower is downstairs but for light the bathroom upstairs is better. In all honesty if you want peace and the get away from people feel this is not your place. The kitchen is adequate. The internet signal is poor at the best of times. Walking is great as you can walk straight from the front door. Parking is good The local pub/hotel just a couple mins walk away is a waste of time it's only open when they feel like it. Finding a place to eat out was hard with a dog. I love the ruleing no dogs upstairs.....try to tell our dog that as she sleeps beside mother's bedside.’

‘When I first contacted Sophie about the booking I was a little worried as she seemed too nice to be true, the pictures of the location, the walks in the area and the talk of "Large fish" in the tidal stream were all a bit unbelievable.....all were real!.... Sophie couldn't have been more helpful, she answered my many questions before we got there, the location couldn't have been better. Myself partner and princess walked to Padstow, both ways, good water proof walking shoes are needed as there are small streams and tidal mud to get through but it is well worth it. (if you don't fancy the walk back just catch the 11A bus from behind Rick Steins chip shop by the carpark, it's £2 each) we sampled many meals in the local pubs of Padstow and couldn't have felt more welcome. The fishing just off the patio was superb, mullet are tricky to catch but I think it makes it more worthwhile when you hook one.... the main obstacle are the swans.....no trotting or ground baiting. One word of warning about the cottage, there are spiral stairs to the bedroom and bathroom.....you need to be agile to get up them, the downstairs bedroom has a large bathroom if you didn't fancy the climb. There are 4 restaurants/pubs within 2miles of the cottage, the Mill which is the closest wasn't open the twice we went there.... the sign said open but the owners gave their excuses, we went to the Ring O Bells just up the road, lovely food and lovely people. All in all a lovely place to say run by lovely people.... we will look forward to going back there’

‘We loved the location of the cottage, it was very peaceful yet within easy reach of main roads. Loved the patio area although we didn't have the weather to use it to its potential!’

‘A delightful stay in a lovely little cottage. Situated on the edge of the tidal Little Petherick creek, we have been lucky to be visited by 7 Moorhen chicks, egrets, curlews and ducks. A must is the walk along the Camel trail from Old Town Cove (free parking 10 mins from cottage) to Padstow for a pasty from the famous Chough bakery. Further afield, the magnificent Bodmin moor to the North and Porthcurno beach and the Minack Theatre to the South. Waterside cottage is just the perfect base for your stay in Cornwall. From the deck, you see huge fish at high tide; with foot prints from the elusive otter at low tide; this cottage is a real Cornish gem.’

‘This is a comfy cottage in a very peaceful waterside location. Although compact, for a holiday rental where you are out and about most of the time it is plenty big enough for four people. What is lacking in space is made up for by the location on a no through road beside a tidal creek. If you are interested in wildlife this is an excellent locaction for watching birds, listening to owls at night and trying to spot the otter that sneaks by at low tide. We saw the footprints after each tide but never saw their owner. All in all we had a lovely week at waterside. The only minor downer from my wife's perspective was the poor band with on the Wi Fi. It's worth noting that if you want to eat out at more than one venue you need to either walk into Padstow about 45 minute across country or 10 minutes by car and hope you can park. There are other eateries around about with some very good ones in St Meryn. We used Waves and The View. There is also Rick Steins pub The Cornish Arms, it gets busy in the evening so best to go early but the food and beer are good and not overpriced.’

‘Cottage is in superb location beside the tidal creek. Plenty of wildlife to see and fishing/crabbing from the decked area when the tide is in. Very peaceful and relaxing.’

‘Sitting on the decking overlooking the creek, loved feeding the ducklings and swans. It was peaceful and quiet - excellent. Also very near to Padstow for eating out, everything we want in a holiday.’

‘Having always gone to Cornwall in spring and summer we thought we would try in the winter and we were really lucky the cottage was available over new year. The cottage is really comfortable and is tucked away in a quiet spot overlooking a lovely Cornish tidal creek. We saw Kingfishers and Egrets every day and even spotted a stoat on the patio! You can walk from the cottage along the creek to the Camel Trail and then on to Padstow or Wadebridge. It was a real delight to visit at a time of year when everywhere was really quiet - empty beaches, free beach carparks, no queues at the bakery for pasties and lonely coastal path walks.... and yes we had great weather!’
