Tucked on the hill-side of this stunning seaside town, Whitby Cottage is a perfectly traditional, beautifully restored 17th-century cottage for four guests.
Located right in the heart of this enchanting town, entry to the home is down a small set of steps, and from the outset, the charm of the cottage is apparent.
Stepping inside, the magnificent period paint colours and fabrics, alongside beamed ceilings, patterned furnishings and furniture of the time, will take you back hundreds of years.
Yet this renovation is anything but outdated, with fabulous contemporary comforts including a high-spec TV in each bedroom and the living room, a spectacular kitchen and superb modern bathrooms. Get cosy in front of the log burner as you admire the display cabinet and handcrafted monk’s bench.
Heading upstairs you will find two dazzling bedrooms, embodying the charm of the original home alongside a luxurious design. Both rooms are grand, with large double beds, TVs and big windows. One is also complete with a decorative fireplace and a snug armchair, perfect for a little relaxation. There are also two well-designed bathrooms, each equipped with a modern shower with beautiful monochrome features.
In the courtyard, you can take a perch on the bench and enjoy the fresh sea air as you watch the world go by. With everything within walking distance, you’ll find this location very useful indeed. Whitby is home to some of the best fish and chips in the UK, with countless to choose from, as well as countless fabulous Yorkshire pubs in which you can try one of the county’s famous real ales.
A striking sight on the cliff-top, Whitby Abbey was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ setting, and its gothic ruins are still well worth a visit. For an active day out, Dalby Forest is just a short drive away and has some of the country’s finest mountain bike trails, as well as an Activity Centre with paintball, Go Ape and much more.
