Situated in the very heart of the oldest, historic part of the east side of Whitby, The Corner House is one of the oldest properties in Whitby, with a lease first being signed in 1639! We fell in love with, bought and completely refurbished our little seaside getaway in 2014 and have added a wealth of quality fixtures and fittings to it to try to make it feel as homely as possible (and yes, we stay here as often as we can!). We love the location, as it's perfect for travellers of all ages, as there's no hills, steep steps or cobbles to negotiate with walking sticks or pushchairs but being in the heart of Whitby, it's still within very easy reach of shopping and eating and drinking establishments, as well as being close to attractions and the beach.

Travelling with young children? We've got you covered with all the essentials! A 'Retract-a-Gate' baby gate, a Mama's & Papa's Travel Cot with additional mattress, a Mama's & Papa's high chair and a toddler's training toilet seat - to save you having to try to cram them all into the car! We don't supply the bedding for the travel cot though but we know that you prefer to bring your own anyway.In the kitchen and open plan living room you'll find that we've gone to town with everything from York stone flooring and granite worktops to an induction hob, separate drinks cooler (so you don't have to choose between the wine and the milk!), free wi-fi and loads of books, games and DVD's. Nothing has been left out, to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible - including a free bottle of wine!

Upstairs, the shower room has a fabulous, large shower enclosure (big enough for two - if that's what takes your fancy!), with a rainforest shower rose and flexible shower head, along with W.C and vintage wash basin.Bedroom 1 (The Green Room)This has the most comfortable king sized metal bed that I've slept in for ages and a gorgeous super king sized, super snuggly, Christy duvet. We've even put a wall mounted television with Freeview and DVD player in there, in case you decide to stay in bed all day! This room also has plenty of storage and great, dual aspect windows with fabulous views of the upper harbour.

Bedroom 2 (The Blue Room) This is another good sized bedroom with two single metal beds with lovely, super cosy, double sized Christy duvets. Again, we've put a wall mounted television with Freeview and DVD player in there, for when you want to keep the kids quiet! This room also has plenty of storage and the same fabulous views of the upper harbour.

Whilst the cottage does not have its own dedicated parking space, there is a very handy, free 40 minute, limited waiting bay just outside, which is ideal for unloading your bags and there's a Council run, long stay car park approximately 50 metres away, which provides you with the option of using a 'cashless' parking system (which lets you pay via a mobile app and even reminds you when your ticket is about to expire!) - very handy! Otherwise, further up the street there is free, on street parking.

The Yorkshire region

Glorious Yorkshire - God's own County! That's been said many times, by very many people - so they can't all be wrong!

Come and visit us here on the Yorkshire Coast, where the moors and rolling hills almost literally meet the sea. With quaint villages surrounding villages greens, cream telephone boxes and thatched cottages.

Golden, sandy, beaches and beautiful blue sea which crashes against cliffs full of fossils from our distant past and horizons which stretch forever.

Central Whitby

Come and visit our Whitby, which is nestled along the banks of the natural harbour at the mouth of the River Esk, Yorkshire's only Salmon river, and see how flawless Whitby jet, made famous by Queen Victoria, is turned into arguably some of the most beautiful jewellery in the world.

Then wander around its narrow streets crammed full of independent traders, selling everything from dog treats to dinosaurs!

The Pannett Park museum and its grisly 'Hand of Glory' is another 'must see'; together with a visit (or two!) to the many local hostelries, where a thriving live music scene can be found.

A short stroll from The Corner House is Whitby Railway Station, where the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway will make you feel like you've been transported back in time! Journey through fabulous scenery to visit Goathland, or continue on to Pickering, before returning back to sample some of finest and freshest food Whitby has to offer.

Ice cream, seafood, international cuisine, pie & mash or good, old fashioned, fish and chips can all be found within a short stroll of The Corner House and if you've got room after that, why not treat yourself to coffee and cake in any number of excellent, independently run, cafes.

Up the famous 199 steps you'll find the iconic Abbey and St Mary's church, which was the inspiration behind the most well known of all vampire stories, Dracula.

Whitby's 'not to be missed' festivals and specialist themed events can be found throughout the year - great people watching opportunities!

"Great house, great access, great stay!"

In the heart of Whitby this charming house gives immediate access to all that Whitby has to offer with great places to eat just a short walk away. The accommodation is excellent, clean and comfortable, providing all that is needed. This includes plenty to entertain when staying indoors. Booking was straight forward and the owner was friendly, helpful and easy to contact. We really enjoyed our stay there and hope to return again next year.

Hi, Thanks for your brilliant review. I'm chuffed to bits that you enjoyed your stay at our little cottage and liked what we've done to the place! I'm also over the moon to hear that you are planning on staying again; you're welcome back any time. Cheers, Nichola

"Wonderful family holiday"

Lovely cottage in a great central location in Whitby - and very small child-friendly. Nicola, the owner, gave us all the information we needed. Had a wonderful time, and would definitely recommend it.

Hi, Thank you for your brilliant review and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our little cottage. I'm also really pleased that you found it family friendly, that means a lot. I look forward to welcoming you and your family back at any time. Take care, Nichola

Lovely cottage right in the heart of Whitby, everything you need right on your doorstep. Had a fab week, could not fault it, . Nichola the owner was alway's very helpful and provided all information needed, making the whole booking process very easy. Most mention lovely cosy bed and great shower. Will definately be booking again. Can't wait.

Hi, Thanks for the brilliant review of our little cottage and I'm thrilled to bits that you like what we've done to it. I'm especially glad that you liked the beds and shower - they're my favourites too (as well as the kitchen!)!

"10/10 for The Corner House, Whitby"

We visited Whitby for the Northern Soul Weekender and struck it lucky with our accommodation. The Corner House is a lovely cottage right in the middle of Whitby. Spotless, all the essentials supplied, beds very comfortable, fab shower - all round perfect for our visit. The street can be noisy but the glazing on the windows cancels that out. Would highly recommend and Nichola was great to deal with.

Hi, Thanks for your fabulous review and I'm chuffed to bits that you've enjoyed both your stay and what we've done to our little cottage! You and your friends are welcome back at any time! Cheers, Nichola

What a beautiful little cottage. We stayed for the weekend and it really is a little home from home. Perfectly clean, really comfortable and welcoming, it really feels like you are the first guests to stay there! I cannot recommend it enough we were really pleased with our stay and will definately go back.... !

Hi, Thank you for your fabulous review and I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, our cleaners do an excellent job of ensuring that the cottage retains its 'just opened' feel, which is exactly what we want every guest to experience. You and your guests are welcome back at any time. Take care, Nichola

"Second stay in The Corner House and perfect once again!"

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Corner House. The cottage is still just as pristine as it was last August. We love the little changes you have made. It is very nice to see that you try and add the recommendations that previous customers have noted. The only think that would make the stay more comfortable is if the downstairs windows could open as soon as possible because it does get quite claustrophobic when it is warm. We also thought the main door could also do with a bolt further up so children wouldn't be able to open the door to the street as easy. Thank you for another fantastic stay in Whitby and look forward to our stay again with you in August.

Hi, Thanks for once again writing such a fabulous review and I'm over the moon that you enjoyed your stay. In answer to your comments, the windows are due to be replaced in a couple of weeks (I can't wait!) and I'll look into whether we can put another bolt on the door, as it may be a fire risk. Take care and look forward to you visiting us again soon. Cheers, Nichola

"Location, Location, Location"

Beautifully situated in central Whitby, the Corner House is a pleasantly furnished cottage whose location cannot be faulted. Clean and well equipped, the owner was helpful and pleasant, and the cottage was surprisingly quiet given its position, especially given it was Goth Weekend and the town had many visitors when we stayed. The pre-arrival info worked smoothly, and the key safe mechanism meant no fuss when arriving or leaving. Fab shower with plenty of space, well-equipped kitchen and sociable living space. Beds were comfy and the whole experience was a pleasant one. To be honest, I couldn't fault it, but then I wasn't looking to. Good value for a pleasant stay in a wonderful place close to all amenities. You'd struggle to find a better location in Whitby.

Hi, Thanks for your fabulous review and I'm chuffed to bits that you enjoyed your stay and how we've done our little cottage. Yes, we love the fact that it's really quiet, even though it's right at the heart of the old, east side of Whitby and we immediately loved the location, so I'm glad you do too! You and your friends are welcome back at any time. Cheers, Nichola

"A Wonderfull Place to Stay"

It is fair to say that I am no stranger to Holiday Lets in North Yorkshire and the Whitby area in particular and to date I havent uncovered a bad one! The Corner House , however, raises the bar to a new level ! Cosy,compact and exceptionally well specified ,this little Jewel of a cottage has been tastefully restored whilst still retaining character and occupies a superb location in the heart of the town with all local ameneties just a flat walk away.The Corner House is ideal for both familes or older visitors - Whitby is fart from flat - but its location is such that acess to the town,to the beaches and all shopping and recreational venues is easy made with no hills to slow the progress.Even parking the car did not present any problems with either on-street parking or off - road council operated parking being readily available - and this was on a Bank Holiday ! And despite the hustle and bustle of a busy seaside town The Corner House is remarkably quiet within, making for a most relaxing expierience. All in all we had a most wonderfull stay at the Corner House and are eagerly anticipating a return visit at the earliest convenience.

Hi, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and I'm chuffed to bits that you enjoyed your stay in our little cottage! Yes, we love the location as it's so handy for everything and with it being on the flat, it's ideal for every member of the family, so I'm really pleased that you thought so too! I'm also really happy that you're planning on returning; you're all welcome back, at any time. Cheers, Nichola

"Brilliant again"

Our second stay here and it was perfect again. Even better if possible thanks to a few minor changes the owner has made. For example a retractable/moveable baby gate, different table, some more pictures and mirror just add to the stunning rental. Extremely clean and well maintained. Again nichola was excellent in her communication.

Hi, I'm really pleased that you stayed with us again and I'm even more pleased that you like the updates we've done since your last visit - this genuinely means a lot! We are trying to add little touches to keep the place looking nice and fresh. Thank you as well for taking the time to write this lovely review, you and your family are welcome back any time. Take care. Nichola

"Perfect location, lovely little cottage"

We stayed at the Corner House in Whitby for a long weekend as a family of three adults. The house is in a the perfect location and is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay although it is very close to lots of excellent restaurants/cafes etc. Despite being so close to everything once the door is closed it's very quiet inside, we were never disturbed by noise from outside. There is no car parking at the cottage (as with most places in Whitby) However the car park is literally 200 metres away (Chargeable.. £6.50 per 24hrs) There is free parking around however we chose to just park in the car park. The Corner House has a beautiful kitchen, fabulous shower, lovely stone floors and fireplace and the beds are very comfy... What more could you need? Nichola the owner was very welcoming and the complimentary wine went down very well :) We loved our stay here and will definitely stay again.

Hi, I'm absolutely over the moon that you enjoyed your stay and that you liked what we've done with the cottage. I'm also very happy to hear that you are planning on coming back - you're all very welcome at any time. Take care. Nichola
