The perfect coastal getaway for family or friends, featuring sea views, a bustling town and a beach - Whitby has something for everyone.
This gorgeous property is in a fantastic location overlooking Whitby Marina. With views of the imposing abbey from the front terrace, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a coastal position but have the benefit of excellent pubs, museums, shops and the beach all within a mile of the front door. With plenty of space for up to ten guests, this huge Victorian cottage is bursting with contemporary character and enjoys spectacular views from many aspects – reminding you of your excellent position on the River Esk.
Climb the seven steps up to the terrace and front door of this stunning house and step into the hall to hang your coats and drop your boots. The first lounge is on your right, where the soothing tones of the sand and sea are harnessed to create a tranquil place to relax in; position yourself by the bay window and take in the views of the marina below. It’s the perfect spot to read a book with lots of natural light flooding the room.
Further down the hall, the dining room carries on the coastal theme with pastel greens and blues among a rustic wooden dining table. Sit chatting all night in front of the wood burner, playing board games or planning tomorrow’s adventures after dinner. The bright and airy kitchen is a pleasure to cook meals in, the glass roof and contemporary greys and creams adding to the charm with a huge American-style fridge/freezer meaning you’ll never go hungry.
Heading up to the first floor, a stunning second lounge with even better views awaits you; snuggle up in front of the TV after a long day out walking, listening to the wood burner crackling among rich, warm tones and dark woods. Across the landing, a peaceful double bedroom utilises calming neutral colours with nautical furnishings to create a haven for a great night’s sleep. It also has a handy en-suite shower room with WC to avoid the morning rush.
Climb the stairs to the second floor and you’re greeted with an elegant king-size bedroom with regal pastel colours and trendy downlighting. Enjoy a lie-in in the morning with the curtains open and watch the marina wake up, all from the comfort of your bed. Get ready for the day at the dressing area with plenty of natural light after taking an invigorating shower in the en-suite bathroom that has his-and-hers sinks.
It feels like this property never ends as you head up to the third floor where you’ll find a charming double bedroom with pretty floral touches among coastal decor; relax on the sofa before slipping between the sheets or sit and read the morning papers with your coffee. The coastal theme carries on in the en-suite shower room. There’s also a serene twin room on this floor with gentle, pale colours to promote a good night’s sleep along with a handy en-suite shower room.
Finally, a twin room on the top floor has the best views in the house; let in the fresh sea air through the windows as you look down at the marina. Watch out for the varying head height up here – but the views are worth having to stoop to get to the best position!
Outside, the huge terrace is perfect for dining alfresco, whether it’s a tasty homecooked meal or some fresh Whitby scampi and chips from one of the many fish and chip shops. Take your position on sunny days on one of the wooden loungers or sit with a cup of tea on the sofa nearest to the house. Wherever you sit, your views of the marina and abbey are framed by beautiful greenery for the ultimate peaceful atmosphere.
