Hanover Cottage is a rare Whitby gem! A large, 4-bedroom, detached house of character in the popular coastal resort of Whitby in North Yorkshire. With beautiful enclosed gardens, conservatory and private parking for 3-4 cars it is perfect for family and friends holidaying together. Ideally located with just a 5-minute walk to the Harbour and Whitby's array of attractions, shops and eating places, Hanover Cottage is currently rated 4-Star by Visit England. We have taken care to provide everything you require for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We offer weekly holidays all year round usually starting on a Saturday at 3pm. In Low Season we do provide shorter breaks starting on a Friday or a Saturday with the minimum stay being 3 nights. High Season is June to September and includes all school holidays. Our prices start from £690 per week and from £110 per night for shorter breaks. Our prices are based on 8 people sharing and include unlimited WIFI, private parking, gas, electricity, water, towels and bed linen.

Comfortably accommodating up to 8 guests, Hanover Cottage has 4 first floor bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin & 1 bunk room), 2 bathrooms (1 being en-suite) and an additional ground floor toilet. We can provide a fold-away bed or up to 2 travel cots if you have additional younger guests in your party (please inform us at the time of booking). The ground floor comprises of a spacious living room with plenty of comfortable seating, Free- Sat T.V, DVD player, books, games and a docking station. This leads to a large, traditional conservatory with views of the garden and table and seating for 8 guests. A huge fully equipped kitchen has everything you require to prepare meals as well as a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The cottage has a formal dining room with seating for 8. The accommodation is tastefully decorated and some of the original Victorian and Georgian features remain, such as fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows. The gardens are ideal for alfresco dining and drinks, with facilities including a BBQ, table and chairs, parasol and bench seat. Good quality bed linen, towels, duvets and pillows are provided, as well as a small selection of toiletries. A welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, jam, biscuits and a bottle of wine is provided on your arrival.

Hanover Cottage is in a residential area and conveniently located on Prospect Hill which is the main route into the centre of Whitby. The side of the property is adjacent to the road and the house is slightly elevated, therefore it retains privacy. The gardens are to the front and side of the house and can be viewed from most of the rooms. Parking is provided at the rear of the property and the driveway has a gate. We welcome families, walkers and cyclists and have secure storage for bikes and equipment.

Pannett Park is just down the hill, and as well as being a lovely area to stroll through it has a fantastic adventure playground to suit all ages. There is a good variety of shops, tea rooms, restaurants, take-aways and pubs to choose from in the town. Fish and chips are a must while in Whitby! With attractions and activities to suit the whole family such as visiting the beach, Whitby Abbey, the Whale Jawbone Arch, museums and so much more, it's not surprising that people return to Whitby every year.

Public transport is easily accessed, with bus stops located within 20 metres of the property and the train station is a 5-minute walk away. It you want to explore further afield the nearby smaller coastal resorts of Sandsend and Runswick Bay are well worth a visit, and so are the many scenic villages such as Danby and Goathland in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. You could take a day trip to Scarborough or the City of York too.

"Superb holiday home in excellent location."

Wonderful holiday home, brilliant location being 5mins walk from Whitby harbour. House very well equipped and immaculately clean. Delightful private gardens and secure off street parking. Owners friendly and extremely helpful but not obtrusive. Brilliant complimentary welcome pack included wine, gorgeous fresh bread, tea coffee etc. Super house for a group of friends or family, Highly recommended! We hope to return.
