Property code: OC-B27485

Experience the best of two worlds by staying in this newly fully refurbished / well presented historical property in a tranquil hide-away setting in the heart of Whitby. Head down the steps from the cottage ,cross the yard (built circa 1828) and take the short passageway into Church Street where you are transported in an instant in the bustling centre of town with its tea rooms , bars, and restaurants along with wonderful gift shops. If you wish you can then follow in the footsteps of Count Dracula and climb the 199 Steps to Whitby Abbey or stop off at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, set in the harbourside house where the explorer lodged as a merchant navy apprentice. Stroll around the harbour or take a boat trip and watch the seals and porpoises. Or travel further afield and enjoy a hike through the North York Moors National Park or visit the many pretty Yorkshire villages nestled among the moors.

When you walk into Blackburns Retreat full of original features you will find a cosy living room with a beamed ceiling and wood-panelled walls. The character and atmosphere of the past has been retained whilst at the same time adding the modern elements you will love. So snuggle down to read , listen to music or watch Smart TV. The kitchen has been newly fitted to include granite work surfaces and modern appliances. For storage, there is a large cupboard under the stairs. The stairs lead from the kitchen to the galleried dressing room with built-in wardrobes to hold all you will need to get ready for an evening out in Whitby. Take one step down into the bedroom which boasts a king-size bed, and lots of  storage space for your belongings.

At the front of the property is a paved patio overlooking a small ornamental garden , where you can sit and enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down. Alternatively you can sit and enjoy the upper sun terrace atop your large secure side garden where you can gaze out over the old town  - an amazing view – with all its charm and history.

Fantastic quaint and quirky little cottage, great location ( quite a few steps up to cottage so wouldnt recommend if you have any walking issues) otherwise it has everything you could need. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Only slight downside is bathroom is downstairs

The cottage was very clean, comfortable and is in a perfect location up a small alley off church street and close to the 199 steps. It has a lovely courtyard with seating outside. It is a small cottage but more than adequate for a couple. It has everything you need. The bed is very comfy. We would recommend a stay.

This property was perfect for my daughter and me. We had the best time. Great location, great facilities. The only thing j would say is there are a lot of steps to get to the property but this wasn't a problem for us. Xxx
