What more can one say! At high tide you are completely surrounded by water and at low tide you are on the beach! The views from the large balcony are stunning, you are amongst the life on the water. Whether watching the rowers practising for The Regatta and watching the yachts arriving and leaving the harbour or the comings and goings of the fishing boats there is always something going on. Being on The Lifeboat Pier, there are obviously moments when the Lifeboat will be going out either for a practice or for a real resue.There are chairs and tables outside.
Northern England region
Whitby is 45 miles from the beautiful walled city of York, with its famous Minster. Not far from inland market towns and villages such as Pickering, Helmsley, Northallerton and Guisborough. It is reached by crossing the abundant purple heather - laden North Yorkshire Moors where you can also experience the thrill of a full size steam locomotive, or the power of a diesel engine on a nostalgic journey through spectacular countryside on The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. Goathland (Aidensfield to those of you that watch Heartbeat!) is 10 miles from Whitby. Here you will find some lovely walks, especially down to Beck Hole and up to the Mallion Spout
Whitby is a lovely old fishing town. It has become rather trendy in recent years but still keeps all of its old charm.
Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of quaint alleyways and narrow cobbled streets run down to the busy quayside. Here you can find lovely shops and restaurants, in particular The White Horse & Griffin, a restaurant with rooms. It was in this 360 year old coaching inn that Captain Cook hired and fired all his crews for his trips on The Endeavour ship to find the new world. It is also here that you will find delicious meals and gorgeous rooms!
Whitby has beautiful beaches, a lovely links Golf course, plenty of walking along the Cleveland Way and delightful villages to visit. Goathland, Sandsend, Runswick & Robin Hood's Bay being within easy reach.Whitby Gothic Weekend is a twice-yearly festival for Goths in Whitby and it has now grown into one of the most popular gothic events in the world.

"The Best Place to Stay in Whitby"
Simply the best property to stay in when visiting Whitby. The location is superb and totally unique. Standing outside on the terrace (where I spent quite a bit of time!) feels like you almost at sea, on board some ocean liner, rather than being in the centre of Whitby. Feels very modern throughout, tastefully furnished and the gas fire was a welcome addition and the cinema system finished off the day nicely whilst cuddling up on the huge sofa. It is also very quiet during the evenings and mornings. We'd usually start the morning by opening the Velux window, to hear the seagulls whilst having our morning tea!
Step out of the property and across the bridge to the 'mainland' and you are straight in to the oldest and prettiest part of Whitby, close to some excellent pubs and restaurants (those voted very highly on trip advisor are all within very close proximity to the Boathouse). I can't really say much about what I didn't like and if pushed, the front door sticks a bit!
Thank you so much for your fantastic review, we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay in The Boathouse and also in Whitby, it sounds like the weather was good to you as well! That always helps! Many many thanks for your glowing review!
With kind regards
Stewart and June

"Everything you need for a get-away-from-it-all break, but right in the centre of town"
Had a lovely couple of days here and survived to 100mph winds - the place was rock solid and didn't move one bit thankfully. All the other reviews tell it all, the only thing I would grumble at … More
Thank you for taking the time to put pen to paper. I am really glad you enjoyed your stay, you will be pleased to know that we have replaced the bedspread with a brand new identical one, but one with a bit more padding! I am sorry that you had problems with the lighting of the fire, we didn't receive a call from you, (probably because we don't have reception in Sandsend ! ) but there are 2 other numbers supplied on all the emails for our landline and also for Vanessa who is available 24/7 to sort out any problems.

Hello! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in The Boathouse, despite the wave surge up the harbour! Sorry you couldn't get back up the gangplank for a few hours until it subsided! It was very exciting, but we still thank you for being so mince about it! Thank goodness it didn't get into The Boathouse and soak all your belongings!
We hope to welcome you again in the future and to more clement weather!
Thank you for your lovely comments
