Enjoy a slice of coastal life at this modern house accommodating up to eight guests situated within Whitby and surrounded by The North York Moors National Park. This property is ideal for families and small groups of friends.

Indulge in a traditional, Yorkshire, seaside holiday with a stay at this comfortable holiday home in Whitby. Sleeping up to eight guests, and also welcoming two canine companions, this inviting, four-bedroom property is approximately 1 mile from the centre of the famous seaside town. Walk just over 1 mile to also reach the beach at West Cliff, where you can swim, surf and picnic on the sand. Head to Tate Hill, about the same distance away, on the east side of the River Esk estuary, where your four-legged friends are welcome all year round. Discover the town’s history and literary connections during your visit: Whitby is known for its role in Bram Stoker’s chilling Victorian gothic novel, Dracula, as well as for its smuggling past, and there are plenty of sights and activities to help you immerse yourselves in these colourful fictional and non-fictional tales.

Accommodating a group of friends, an extended family or two families together, this property could also be ideal for all those eager to explore the beautiful North York Moors. Find fabulous walks through ancient woodlands, across magnificent moors and beside winding rivers within the national park. Go rock climbing, paddle boarding and horse riding while you are here too.

Open the front door to the modern holiday home and leave your shoes, jackets and dog leads in the hall. Wander on through into the kitchen/diner, which opens conveniently into the lounge, bringing a sense of flow to the house. Make a cup of tea for your group and then decide who is cooking dinner tonight. You’ll have everything you need in the kitchen to be able to prepare tasty meals, plus a useful dishwasher and a washing machine. Gather round the table to dine together and perhaps play a hand or two of cards into the evening.

Members of your group might also like to spill out into the lounge, where they can choose a film or catch up with their favourite programmes on the Smart TV, which has BT vision and a basic Sky package, plus a sound bar subwoofer to enhance their enjoyment. On summer days, pull open the exterior door and enjoy wandering outside to make the most of the garden. You also have a WC at ground-floor level.

After a fun-filled evening, make your way up to the first floor where all four comfortable bedrooms are situated. These rooms all embody a fresh, seaside appeal, with calming decor featuring gentle hints of a maritime, seaside theme. Choose between a super-king-size room with an en-suite shower room; a king-size room; a double room and a bunk bedroom with an extra pull-out bed. The family bathroom, which features a bath with a shower above, is also on the first floor.

Take breakfast, lunch and dinner outside whenever the weather permits. Watch the children and pets playing on the artificial lawn as the BBQ heats up. You’ll also find off-street parking for two cars in front of the house.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 4 bedrooms - 1 super-king-size, 1 king-size, 1 double and a bunk bedroom with a pull out trundle bed

  • Please Note. There is construction work still going on in this development. The major work is completed but there will be signs of builders in neighbouring properties.

Lose yourself in the cobbled lanes, quirky cafes and artsy boutiques in Whitby (1.5 miles). Treat yourself to some fish and chips, or push out the boat and indulge in a plate of the locally-caught crab and lobster. Explore the town’s connection with Bram Stoker’s Dracula by climbing the 199 steps on the town’s East Cliff. At the top you’ll find the famous Abbey Ruins, which are featured in Stoker’s novel. When the sun goes down, get the gang together for a spot of stargazing, because the North York Moors National Park is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve. In the town or city, you may only spot a handful of stars, but in the national park you can spy up to 2,000 at any one time. Danby (12 miles) is one of the national park’s Dark Sky Discovery Sites – and the Milky Way is often visible from there with the naked eye.

Lovely house but it is on a building site, so expect builders from 7.30-3.30/4pm each working day. Also dogs not allowed upstairs!

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
