  • Quirky, dog-friendly apartment perfect for a romantic break by the sea
  • Ideal location close to Whitby town centre and the beach
  • Fantastic cliff-top position with amazing sea views and spectacular mezzanine bedroom

Property code: OC-W427

An airy mezzanine apartment with a breezy outdoor space, ideally situated in the traditional seaside town of Whitby. This tastefully appointed abode is the perfect romantic escape by the sea for couples and their furry-pawed companions. Delve into a fresh al fresco spread on the raised wooden deck, then grab a flask and hike beneath the twinkling night sky as you tackle the stone steps leading to St Mary's Church (1 mile).

This sophisticated property exudes traditional elegance with a striking arched window, intricate cornicing, crisp neutral tones, and nautical detailing. Towel off sandy paws and hang windbreakers in the hallway before being lulled into the light-flooded living space. Rustle up a post-adventure snack in the cream shaker kitchen then gather at the dining table as you plan out the perfect Whitby itinerary. Peruse the bookshelf for an easy holiday read then stretch out on the plush sofas. On cooler nights, turn up the wood burner effect electric fire and snuggle beneath the soft throws with a movie. As night falls, retire upstairs to the mezzanine level double bedroom styled in coordinated eggshell blue hues. Draw the drapes to create a cosy sleeping nook then enjoy elevated views when morning comes. In summer months, inhale the salty ocean air as you perch on the bistro chairs with a morning coffee and warm pastries.

Soak in the sleepy fishing village atmosphere as you stroll Whitby’s harbour (500 metres) and find the best spot for salty fish and chips. As day fades, glimpse the gothic silhouette of Whitby Abbey from the iconic Whalebone Arch (400 metres). Ocean lovers can amble along the multicoloured beach chalets lining Whitby Beach (400 metres) or fossil hunt beneath the rugged cliffs of Runswick Bay (8 miles).

This is a lovely apartment in a great location. Don't let first impressions (the communal entrance hall) put you off, it is clean and cosy once you get inside. Previous issues mentioned in reviews have been resolved, (the scaffolding is no longer there and the sofa has been cleaned). Despite being in a huge building which contains a pub and a chRead moreinese restaurant, it is very quiet and you would never know they were there. The location is great - very quiet and an easy walk into Whitby, close to Staithes, Sandsend, Robin Hoods Bay, Runswick Bay etc and the beach is directly across the road. It is perfect for dog owners! The only disappointment was that it lacks the added extras that would make this feel like luxury accommodation and it doesn't give the impression that you are particularly valued as a customer. There is no welcome pack, no toiletries and not a single bauble to be seen, (I was there for the whole of Christmas and New Year - all of the other holiday lets that I could see were decorated for Christmas). The bathroom is a DIY disaster but clean! All in all, a good property, I would stay again if I was heading to that area. Hide

The cleanliness was good but the sofa and chair was really grubby. And the rest of the low scores refer to the lack of communication and the fact that the property was a building site.

Disappointed that I wasnt told about the scaffolding to the apartment two weeks before we arrived you should state on the website about the scaffolding of the building before booking as it disturbed us a lot waking my dog up in the morning and us as well constants banging which was very destructive when your trying to relax on holiday. In the photoRead more when booking it shows that you have a bottle of wine/ champagne on arrival this was not available to us. The door of the bathroom catch was broken. The cleanliness of the apartment was incredible no complaints at all it was lovely. We was told it would be easy to find parking had to call on arrival where to park was told bay 3 which turned out to be the wrong parking space so we could have gotten charge for that so my finance had to move his car. Overall not very pleased with the building but location was lovely and cleanliness of the apartment absolutely amazing. Hide

The only reason I marked a 4 for equipment is due to the shower head being loose so I had to wedge it high in order to have a shower. Everything else was amazing.
