Sirmonds Cottage is a beautiful detached property in a secluded courtyard tucked away on historic Cliff Street- a really great location to access the beach, shops, restaurants and all that Whitby has to offer. To the front of the house a short meander down the cobbled pathway of Pier Lane brings you to the harbourside. A short walk down Cliff Street leads you to the bustling shopping street of Flowergate, whilst the top of Cliff Street brings you to West Cliff with its iconic whale bones.

Rare for the centre of Whitby, Sirmonds Cottage boasts a lovely spacious outdoor decked area, with brick built barbecue and shaded table and benches, secluded from the road so is a quiet and peaceful sun trap to enjoy al fresco dining or bask in the sun on the deck chairs.

Sirmonds Cottage is a bright contemporary seaside inspired space with local art works dotted about the place that gives it a truly unique yet homely feel.

The comfortable lounge is open plan to the well equipped kitchen and is a lovely place to relax together after a busy day out and about. 

Sleeping arrangements are versatile at Sirmonds Cottage as the property benefits from a downstairs double bedroom and adjacent cloakroom with w/c and wash basin. To the first floor the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom is a characterful room with glorious views to the East side- the sea, the 199 steps and Whitby Abbey. The lovely single bedroom also boasts similar views and is equally welcoming.

Mr Andrew B,


Area Information

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.
