Hideaway Cottage offers a high level of quality and comfort. Throughout the cottage the designer furniture and fittings provide a luxurious quality, and a usb port is provided in each room for your convenience. The stunning wrought iron balustrade and matching curtain poles, made for this cottage by renowned blacksmith James Godbold, are a fantastic feature. The granite worktops and island unit contribute to the high specification of the kitchen, and with the large table in the dining area this is a great sociable space for everyone to gather and relax. The contemporary bathrooms have stylish fittings, large showers with rainfall showerheads and backlit mirrors. The lounge is on the first floor, making the most of the views to the abbey, pier and sea from the patio doors (leading to a Juliet balcony) and porthole window.
Located in popular Cliff Street, Hideaway Cottage is ideally placed for the town centre, pier and beach. It is just a short walk over the swing bridge to Whitby's old town with its cobbled streets, fascinating shops and the 199 steps to the historic abbey.
The owners of this gorgeous cottage are keen for you to enjoy a relaxing break and provide a Bothams welcome pack and bottle of champagne to get your holiday off to a great start.

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.
