With beautiful enclosed gardens, a traditional 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, beach and the array of attractions, shops and eating places that Whitby has to offer. Hanover Cottage comfortably accommodates up to 9 guests on a self catering basis and we have taken care to provide everything you require for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We welcome families and we provide additional items such as high chairs, intercom systems and travel cots for babies and young children. A welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, jam, biscuits and a bottle of white wine is provided on your arrival.
We offer holidays all year round usually starting on a Saturday at 3pm for 7 nights or more. In mid and low season (outside of school holidays) we provide shorter breaks at a minimum of 3 nights starting on a Friday, Saturday or Monday at 3pm. These short breaks are not available to book more than 12 weeks in advance of arrival. Our prices start from £700 per week and from £120 per night for short breaks. The prices advertised are for the rental of the whole property and not per person. Our prices include unlimited WIFI, private parking, gas, electricity, water, towels and bed linen.
The house is tastefully decorated and some of the original Victorian and Georgian features remain, such as fireplaces, high ceilings and wooden sash windows. The ground floor comprises of a large, fully equipped kitchen diner (newly fitted in early 2015) and has everything you require to prepare and enjoy meals. Next to the kitchen, a separate utility area has a washing machine and tumble dryer. Our spacious living room provides a relaxing space, with plenty of comfortable seating, Free-Sat T.V, DVD player, books, games and a docking station. This leads into a large, traditional conservatory with views of the garden and seating for 8 guests. We have 1 bedroom located on the ground floor which can be used as a twin or double room. This looks onto the front garden and is ideal for our less mobile guests struggle with stairs. A large family bathroom located next door has a bath and separate low-level shower (newly fitted in March 2015).
A further 4 bedrooms are located on the first-floor. The master bedroom has a king size bed, plenty of storage space and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath (newly fitted in March 2015). A third bedroom looks onto the front garden and has a double bed and fitted wardrobes. The fourth bedroom also looks onto the front garden and has 2 single beds that can be converted to a super king if required. A bathroom with a shower enclosure is located between bedroom 3 and 4. A fifth smaller bedroom has a single bed and would be suitable for a child. Good quality bed linen, towels, duvets and pillows are provided, as well as a small selection of toiletries. We can provide 2 travel cots if you have additional younger guests in your party and we also have a fold-away bed (please inform us of your requirements at the time of booking).
The stunning gardens are ideal for alfresco dining and drinks, with facilities including a BBQ, table, chairs, parasol and bench seat. Hanover Cottage is located in a residential area and conveniently located on Prospect Hill, which is the route straight 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. Ample parking is provided at the rear of the property and the driveway has a gate to ensure that children are safe.
Pannett Park is just down the hill, and as well as being a lovely area to stroll through it has a fantastic Maritime adventure playground to suit all ages. Whitby as a town has a rich history, plenty of character and attractions and activities to suit the whole family. Visit the beach, Whitby Abbey, the Whale Jawbone Arch, the museums or take an open top bus tour - it's not surprising that people return to Whitby year after year. There are a good variety of shops, tea rooms, restaurants, take-aways and pubs to choose from and being a seaside resort fish and chips are an absolute must while in Whitby!
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 easily take a day trip to Scarborough or the City of York too.

Thank you for your review. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hanover Cottage and all that Whitby has to offer. The en-suite bathroom is definitely in need of an update and will be fully replaced towards the end of the year (incorporating another shower). We're also hoping to redesign the kitchen in early 2015 to create more of a kitchen/diner, which will provide a great social space.
Hope to see you again.

"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.
