Great location. Top quality furnishings throughout. Welcome pack. Very clean. Had a great week.
We really enjoyed our holiday at this property. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Ingrid Flute's office fixed a broken door lock really quickly.
One of the best we have stayed in and excellent location . Useful to have WiFi. Well equipped house and added touches such as milk in the fridge and wine on arrival made us feel welcome.
Whitby is a fantastic friendly town with something for everyone. 8 West Terrace is a lovely period property in convenient location. The owners have tastefully updated and yet maintained original features.
Lovely Easter week in Whitby even in the cold weather. The house is a great place to stay - fab location, well equipped and immaculately clean. Many thanks.
Our second visit to this lovely property and again very enjoyable. Mad visits to our favourite restaurants and our son managed to complete a cliff top walk to Robin Hood's Bay.
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.
