A romantic, sumptuous bolthole situated in the centre of Whitby amongst historic sites, cobbled streets, independent shops, and fine dining, this ground-floor apartment will put you at the very heart of it. Located on the west side of the river, there’s a choice of cafes, restaurants and bars just metres away. Wander uphill to the peace of Pannett Park, follow the river to the harbour - its high piers are perfect for a romantic evening stroll - or cross to the old town for the challenging climb up to St Mary’s Church and, the remains of Whitby Abbey. Book a boat trip from the harbour, or take a train into the North York Moors, the station is less than 400 metres from your front door. Alternatively, a 5-mile drive south along the Heritage Coastline will lead to the old fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay, and another 16 miles brings you to the sandy bays of Scarborough.

Step off the street into a welcoming entrance hall, hang your coat and leave your shoes and be ready to start your relaxing stay. Renovated in 2023, the property, formerly a thriving hair salon, has been converted into a romantic retreat which boasts stunning interiors that are sure to impress. The open-plan living space has been designed for cosy nights in and romantic meals for two. The sleek and contemporary kitchen provides everything you need for your stay including a coffee machine - perfect for a lazy lie-in with your loved one. Light the electric flame-effect fire and the ambience is set; snuggle up on the plush corner sofa for a chilled-out night watching a movie on the Smart TV. The bedroom is equally impressive, with a king-size bed with a plush headboard, elegant furnishings, and a large, freestanding bathtub that's perfect for two – a lovely bedroom that is the perfect place to retire to after a busy day out or a night on the town. There is a separate dressing room with a private WC which provides all your modern home comforts.

There is no outdoor area at the property but cafes, restaurants and bars are just metres away.

Fantastic place to stay. Clean and well equipped. Every thing you need and a nice welcome pack waiting for you. Some nice pubs and restaurants right on your doorstep. All the main things to do and see are in easy walking distance. We didnt use the car once during our stay. The Steam railway is a good day out and you can catch the local bus to ScarbRead moreorough for 2. Would certainly book again if we return to Whitby. Hide

This is a comfortable apartment in the heart of Whitby and ideal for two people for a short break. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in close walking distance and the harbour is only a couple of minutes walk. The owners provided a well stocked welcome pack, which was a nice touch.

Great location and the cottage is lovely. A big shout out for all the little extras that make your stay so much nicer. 2-3 mins of all the main area in Whitby yet nice and quiet of a night. Very clean, spacious and fitted out well. Would definitely use the cottage again
