This contemporary penthouse near West Cliff in Whitby offers a romantic bolthole for couples with stunning views over the sea and town – and magical sunrises and sunsets. Whitby makes a great base for exploring the Yorkshire coast and North York Moors. There’s plenty to do right on your doorstep, from climbing the 199 steps to St Mary’s Church and the ruins of Whitby Abbey, to relaxing on the beach, and sampling the town’s restaurants, cafes, fish and chip shops, and quirky tearooms. The North York Moors is within easy reach with numerous hiking and cycling trails through its spectacular scenery – a popular way to visit is via the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a heritage steam line that runs from Whitby to the market town of Pickering (20 miles).

This is a modern penthouse apartment, served by a lift, which boasts huge windows to make the most of those glorious views, and excellent attention to detail throughout. Located on the fourth floor, you enter via the hall, which has a large storage cupboard and coat hooks. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows and views across to the abbey and out to sea. There are two seating areas: a sofa facing the TV and entertainment corner, and two lounge chairs and a footstool next to one of the large windows. There is a door leading to the balcony. The circular dining table and chairs sit in another window, while the fully fitted kitchen has all you may need for preparing meals at home. Down the hall, there’s a bedroom with a king-size bed and views along the coast to Sandsend, and a family bathroom.

Outside, the balcony has a bistro table and chairs, perfect for enjoying a meal or drinks alfresco while delighting in the magnificent views.

A lovely, spacious apartment in a great location just a stones throw from the sea front. It has bifold doors with a Juliette balcony and super comfy chairs to enjoy the view right across to the Abbey. Also there's an actual balcony with chairs and table and a great sea view that added to our enjoyment. Even the bedroom had a great view. The apartmeRead morent was super well equipped with a nice welcome package to greet us on arrival. The sea front was lovely with lots of places to sit and eat ice cream. A short walk takes you to the Whalebone Arch where you can get down, via steps, to what I'd call 'the busy side' of Whitby. Neither of us can walk too far these days but every day we were able to go this way and along to the bridge which takes you across to the great little shops on Church Street selling Whitby Jet and other nice things. The 199 steps to the Abbey are also found here, if you have the ability to tackle them. All in all this was the perfect base for what was a really lovely holiday. Hide

The cottage is located on a quiet street but at the same time it is only a short walk to promenade. It's elevated position means that there is very little traffic noise and provides a great view of Whitby Abbey. It is very well equipped and maintained, particularly, in the kitchen. It is spacious and comfortable. Ideal for an escape from everyRead moreday life. The owner is very helpful, responsive and understanding. Providing excellent communication in a timely manner. Hide

The views out to sea, across to the Abbey and over looking Whitby town was stunning. Location wise was nice to be slightly away from the centre but close enough to walk to restaurants and bars of which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Very comfortable, modern, light & airy apartment. Apex window & general all around views were excellent. We spent time on a number of occasions, just sitting & enjoying the views! Comfortable chairs in the window space were a lovely touch. Very impressed with the whole apartment & booking process. We are already considering our return!

Everything about this short break was excellent (apart from the weather !) The admin and communication was first class throughout, form initial booking to picking up keys and for leaving; the accommodation was amazing - with a real WOW factor - it fitted the description of a luxury apartment absolutely and we loved it.

Appartment was excellent !! Spacious, very comfortable and spotless !! The large bi-folding windows at the front and balcony and large windows at the side dont just allow a lot of light into the property but also give great views on both sides. On-site parking made it even better as a rarity in Whitby. Would highly recommend this property to anyoneRead more. Marked 4/5 for location as not smack in the middle but still only a nice 5 minute walk to the harbour etc. All in all a great place to stay !! Hide
