Getting around

Once you're in Whitby, it's easy to move around the town itself without a car. The town is well served with buses and taxis, and of course the train station (although services are limited). If you're lucky, the steam train will be running! There's also an open bus tour, great for taking it all in without having to do the driving yourself!

Interaction with guest

In the week prior to your arrival date, you'll receive a little package from us containing directions, information about parking, and arrival and departure time confirmation. It will also include a set of keys so that you can let yourselves in after the given arrival time, without any hassle. During your stay, if you need any assistance, we're just a phone call away. And at the end of your stay, you simply pop the keys back through the letterbox - it couldn't be easier!


This rental can only be paid for online through Holiday Lettings using your credit/debit card or PayPal (never by bank or wire transfer).

“The perfect home in the most perfect location”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2019

This home had everything you could possible need for an amazing holiday, weekend or longer. The photographs don’t do it justice. From booking to arriving was so easy! All the attractions of Whitby are on the doorstep, the Abbey, cafes, restaurants. There are so many places to walk. Perfect!!!!
