9th October 2015 Update - Hopefully the map pin stays in its correct place! It should be on Whitehall Landing which is off Church Street.

Sealview is a harbour side apartment sleeping four plus two which over looks Whitby's picturesque marina and historic fishing port beneath the Abbey. The water front development is on the former shipyard on the banks of the River Esk. The property is on the third floor (accessible via the lift or stairs), giving a great advantage point to catch a glimpse of seals swimming (hence the apartments name) and cormorants catching fish. The apartment is strictly no smoking and no pets are allowed (only goldfish)!The wide array of services, amenities and attractions in the heart of Whitby are only a brisk walk away. To summarize, the apartment offers modern high quality self-catering accommodation for the perfect break in Whitby.

The Yorkshire region

The Surrounding Areas

STAITHES - This quaint and unspolit fishing village consists of cottages huddled together on steep cliffs over looking a tiny harbour. Captain Cook lived here at the age of seventeen while he was an apprentice to a grocer and draper in a shop.

ROBIN HOODS BAY - Robin Hoods Bay on the coast off the Whitby to Scarborough road is a picturesque and historic village notorious for its smuggling history. Smuggling was rife and many of the buildings have secret passageways so that contraband could be passed secretly from the bottom of the village to the top without going outside. The narrow winding streets and alleys conceal many beautiful cottages. The haphazard positions of the cottages attract many photographers and artists.

RUNSWICK BAY - Eight miles north of Whitby, this attractive little seaside village with its white painted cottages and red roofed cottages perched in improbable positions on the steep hill side is a favourite spot sailing enthusiasts, water skiers and artists.

RAVENSCAR - From the high peak of Ravenscar you can take in the dramatic views of Robin Hoods Bay. This could be called the town that never was. A series of streets lead nowhere and there are a few houses dotted about.


Local Amenities

Whitby offers miles of sandy beaches, fishing trips from the harbour and many specialists' shops filled with crafts, antiques, artist's shops, maritime memorabilia and handmade local jet jewellery. The town has two sides which is divided by the River Esk. Both sides are very different which provides a fantastic contrast for all visitors. For food connoisseurs, Whitby has it all to suit varying tastes - award winning sea food restaurants, continental delights, olde worlde English tea rooms and traditional sea-shanty inns / pubs serving local produce. For those dining at home there are supermarkets and many local shops around the area. The main Post Office in Whitby is inside the Co-op on Langborne Road. A taxi rank is situated adjacent to the Tourist Information Centre. The bus and train station are only a short distance away.


Whitby is a small town which has its own character and picturesque charm based on its spectacular history as a seaport. The town is famous for its rich cultural and architectural heritage:- its 7th century Abbey, its yards, ancient alleyways, cobbled side streets, Captain Cook's seafaring life and Bram Stoker was so inspired by Whitby that he chose it as a back drop for his classic Novel Dracula.

WHITBY ABBEY - The remains of the earliest monastery stands high on the headland above the picturesque harbour.

ST MARY'S CHURCH - Situated beneath the Abbey on the East Cliff. There are services held here in the summer and on special occasions e.g.. Christmas.

199 STEPS - These steps connect the Abbey and St. Mary's Church on the cliff to the town below.

WHALEBONE ARCH - On the West Cliff stands a bronze statue of Captain Cook which over looks the arch of whalebone jaws recalling the whaling industry in the town.

GRAPE LANE - A winding cobbled street on the east side of Whitby with quaint shops and restaurants. Here you will also find the Captain Cook Memorial Museum where you can see displays and models relating to his life and where he lodged in the attic of John Walkers house whilst serving as an apprentice. Whitby Archives also situated in Grape Lane has a collection of pictorial material of old Whitby.

PANNETT PARK - The Pannett Park grounds, museum and gallery were a gift of Whitby solicitor Robert Pannett. The park occupies a sloping, well-landscaped site overlooking the town and harbour, with views across to the Abbey ruins and St. Mary's Church.

WHITBY MUSEUM - In the middle of Pannett Park, the museum contains Captain Cook's artefacts, model ships, information about whjaling and collections of fossils.

GRAND TURK - The Grand Turk , a replica fighting frigate which features in the TV series Hornblowermakes regular visits to Whitby.

WHITBY REGATTA - Whitby Regatta is possibly the oldest sea regatta in England and has regularly drawn large crowds into the town. There is a large selection of entertainment for both children and adults - inflatable maze, pirate ship, yacht racing and parachute display.

WHITBY LEISURE CENTRE - The centre is situated on the west cliff and is open all year round. It has two pools, a fitness suite, sports hall, community room, an outdoor multi games area and sun beds.

VICTORIAN IMAGE - Step back in time and find out what you might have looked like in the Victorian days. The old time studio is situated in the heart of old Whitby.

THE SUTCLIFFE GALLERY - The gallery is home to a collection of photographs by the Victorian photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.

DOODLEPOTS - Paint Your own pottery studio in Skinner Street.


CAEDMONS CROSS - On the path side of the Abbeys cliff top grave yard is the cross of Caedmon, an illiterate labourer who worked at the Abbey in the 7th century. He had a vision that inspired him to compose cantos of Anglo-Saxon religious verse still sung today.

WHITBY HARBOUR - The harbour is situated at the mouth of the River Esk. The arms of the entrance piers extend out to sea.

LIFE BOAT MUSEUM - The museum is situated on Pier Road. On exhibition is the last pulling lifeboat to be in service with the RNLI plus an exhibition of the history of Whitby's lifeboats.

"Fantastic Apartment"

Great apartment, clean and bright and spacious. Good views.Gave us a great base to explore Whitby and the surrounding area. The lift was esential for us. The thing that could have made it better would have been wifi access, with two teenage girls that was the first thing they commented on when we unpacked.

Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review. Wi-fi will hopefully be installed in the apartment from October 2015 as a result of customer reviews.

"Perfectly situated, like a home from home"

Sealview is a comfortable and well equipped apartment. Perfectly situated to quickly walk to the shops or to watch the world go by from the apartment window. I'm not sure if available on request as I didn't think to ask but an extra set of keys could prove useful for some as I travelled with two 18 year olds who wanted to wonder around independently from us. An extra set of keys would have prevented having to meet up to key exchange. Perhaps a small returnable deposit could be charged for this? The tea, coffee, sugar, kitchen towel, salt, pepper, vinegar etc was a great touch. My only small complaint was the cleanliness which by in large was great but the caretaker hadn't removed all the hair from the floors from the previous holiday makers and checked to make sure the microwave or oven trays had been left clean. There was also dried liquid left on the coffee table and floor in the front room. Nothing a quick wipe over didn't fix. All in all, I would highly recommend Sealview. The communication from the owners was great and we are very thankful that they are willing to rent out this wonderful apartment. A fantastic holiday was had by all.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. An extra set of keys could have been made available if requested.I will pass your comments onto my caretaker.

"Fantastic apartment"

Had a great week in Whitby following my daughters wedding in Liverpool. Had a great chill out week with my husband in Seal view what a nice comfortable apartment. Walking distance to the town we only used the car once during the week, walked everywhere, had a day out on the steam train which were great entertainment from the window overlooking the river and the trains in the apartment.

"A nice change!"

We have been visiting Whitby together for the past 25+ years when styed in Whitby have always been up the Captain Cook monument end of town. For the past few years we have stayed at Robin Hoods Bay this time we chose Whitby for a change and I have to say we could not have chosen a better residence a great apartment in a great location I have recommended this to friends and relatives with confidence and we cannot wait to return ourselves.

"A gem of a place"

We picked this location as it was in Whitby but also had parking for free. What you don't realise is it also has an excellent view of the river and the rest of Whitby. We could not fault the apartment which had plenty of space and all the facilities you needed for 4 people.

"Like a home from home, but with a view."

The flat met all of our needs (with the exception of WiFi non-availability). The walk to town along the river is pleasant and does not take long (about 10 mins). So good to come across a quality flat which has well above the basics provided, and which is so clean and well presented.

"Fabulous apartment in a great location."

Spent a fantastic weekend in this fabulous apartment with our 18 month old son. Booked very last minute and Carloline was extremely helpful and sent through all the information re our booking very promptly. Travel cot and high chair were provided which made our stay much easier. The apartment is immaculate and very spacious. The photos really do not do it any justice, it far outweighed our expectations. The view from the windows are stunning and the location is perfect. We are frequent visitors to Whitby and have always stayed in B&B accommodation before now but staying in an apartment was so much easier with a toddler in tow. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and the added extras such as the board games (we loved playing guess who) and the toy box were thoughtful touches. We are already planning our next visit and can't wait to go back.

"Great Apartment, Great Location"

Just had 2 nights in this great apartment and have already booked another stay next year which says it all really! Lovely, clean, spacious and fully equipped apartment less than a ten minute walk into the centre of Whitby with beautiful views of the estuary. The apartment block is quiet and well maintained with the added bonus of a private parking space.
