Lovely property, nicely laid out and right in the heart of everything whilst still being relatively hidden and the balcony must be the best view in Whitby. My stay at Mount Cottage confirmed my intention to relocate to Whitby in the near future!Mr Matthew Howe - 18th June 2018
The best property for location and breathtaking views. The whole layout of the property is spectacular. Very comfy beds and the property is very well equipped. Five televisions! The view from the balcony is absolute heaven.Mrs L Ashley - 28th November 2017
Great holiday, thank you!Mrs Suzanne Wood - 26th September 2017
The appearance of Mount Cottage from Cliff Street is very deceptive, once inside the views from the rear of the property are amazing - so much so that we were reluctant to leave the wonderful balcony during our stay.Mrs K Goddard - 2nd September 2016
Property overall excellent. As we were three (retired) couples we especially liked having shower facilities on all 3 levels.Mr D James - 25th April 2016
Lovely property in a fabulous location. The views to the abbey are fantastic. Very comfortable, really good facilities for three adult couples. Easy access to all area of Whitby - we loved spotting the cottage from various vantage points! Great pubs and restaurants and some lovely shops to mooch around. Friendly staff when contacted by phone and when calling into the officeMrs S Mitchell - 20th April 2016

Very comfortable for 5 adults, superb location.Mr Tim Coaker - 21st September 2015
The views from the balcony of Mount Cottage are wonderful, we were tempted to sit there for long periods watching the world go by. The location is also very good within easy reach of beach, theatre, spa restaurants and leisure facilities.Mrs K Goddard - 31st August 2015
Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops. There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms.
The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.
There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year. For more information on Whitby and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Coast Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
The cottage was built in the early 18th century and is located near the top of Cliff Street on the west side of Whitby.
Traffic passes the property immediately outside the front door and, therefore, care should be taken when exiting. Cliff Street allows one- way traffic only and does not allow parking. A drop-off point for luggage is possible at the top of the street (approximately 15 metres from the property). Car parking is available either in the streets close by (scratch card needed and supplied in the gift pack at the cottage) or in pay and display car parks. Shops, sea front, beach and public toilets are all within a few minutes walk. The views from the property are unbeatable.
The current owners purchased the property in 2004 and have provided substantial improvements to the facilities - new balcony for sitting out, en-suite bathroom on the ground floor, shower room on the 2nd floor, all new furniture throughout, new flooring and carpets and flat-screen televisions with a DVD located in the sitting room.
