This popular four star rated property (taking its name from the ancient name for Whitby) is an extremely well presented modern town house. Sat in spacious shared gardens, on the banks of, and enjoying views over the the river Esk in a small, private and peaceful development. Off the beaten track with no passing traffic you are just 5 minutes drive, or 20 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Whitby. Tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard this is a perfect location to enjoy both the beautiful Heritage Coastline and explore the pretty villages of the North York Moors National Park at any time throughout the year.

We do not run this as a business and regularly use the house ourselves, and for family and friends, which means we have always had high standards and have equipped the house so it is a home from home.

The house itself has a great balcony which provides alfresco dining in the warmer months or an ideal spot to sit and watch the many and varied wildlife on the river (Herons, Seals, Kingfishers, Cormarants ... one vistor thinks he saw an otter). Also not to be be missed are the evocative sights and sounds of the steam trains on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway as they steam past on the other side of the river in and out of Whitby, just wave and the driver will blow the whistle!. All in all a great place in a great 'year round' location, proven by its popularity, reviews and the number of return visits from previous guests.

Please note 'nightly prices' are based on a 2 or 3 night stay (and cover fixed cleaning costs), please contact if you want an accurate quote for longer than a 3 night stay.

The Yorkshire region

Whether you are looking for peace and quiet or all the attractions of a traditional seaside resort, this area of England is the place to be. Along the costline you will find Scarborough, which lays claim to being Britain’s first holiday resort, has a range of attractions including a medieval cliff top castle, the Sealife marine life centre and a broad sandy beach which is ideal for family fun on those warm summer days. The smaller surrounding seaside villages of Staithes, Runswick, Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay, all within easy of Whitby, have a unique charm of their own and captivate thousands of visitors each year with their picture postcard charm and fabulous, clean beaches, all are well worth a visit.

Inland from the coast the Yorkshire Wolds are criss-crossed by quiet country lanes making it ideal for car touring and cycling. For walkers there are miles of easy walking on public footpaths including sections of the Wolds Way which passes close to the deserted medieval village of Wharram Percy. The historic City of York with it’s magnificent minster, the National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and famous “Betty’s” tearoom is less than an hour’s drive away.


Whitby is dominated by the cliff-top ruins of a beautiful 13th century Abbey (managed by English Heritage and open to the public), which was recently voted second in an RAC poll identifying the seven wonders of Britain.

Below the Abbey is a quaint maritime town, with old cobbled streets, intersting shops, picturesque houses and a sandy blue flag beach, is set among fine stretches of coast with spectacular cliffs and bays

199 steps lead down from the Abbey to the old town where you find an array of unique shops offering local crafts, famous Whitby Jet jewellery, maritime memorabilia and antiques.

A selection of diverse attractions includes the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Victorian Jet Works, the Dracula Experience and Whitby Museum. Furthermore the town is full of Cafes, Restaurants and Public Houses.

Whitby is famous for providing the setting which inspired Bram Stoker to write his classic novel - Dracula. Dickens and Tennyson are also known to have enjoyed the hospitality of Whitby's ancient inns.

Whitby also hosts many events through the year (Tall Ships, Regatta's, Folk Music Festivals and 'Gothic' Weekends). Whitby has something for everyone.

"Wow Just Wow"

It's the sort of home that you would buy in a flash if you could. Beautiful setting - probably the best view of all of the houses in the vicinity. The wonderful viaduct and river give a really unique feel. The house was equipped with everything and more needed. I think the owners really have thought about everything that anyone might need on a stay away from home. The weather was terrible during our stay but that didn't 'dampen' our spirit. Whitby and the surrounding area really are lovely. One tip - don't start to explore down single track roads like we did..we ended up in a muddy dead end more than once! We hope to be back in the summer!

Such a lovely review, made the hard work of the annual winter decorating chores worth it!

"No better in Whitby"

When I was a child my family always had our summer holidays in Whitby. In my adult life, it was many years until I went back and now I can't imagine going on holiday anywhere else. I have stayed in other cottages in Whitby, but this one sets the bar very high. Richard and Judy Battersby were fabulous and communication was fabulous with my enquiry and subsequent booking. The cottage is decorated and equipped to a very high standard, you will not be disappointed with this cottage and my 2 year old daughter was delighted that the ducks came right up to the door. From sitting in the morning sunshine eating breakfast by the river, to 'crabbing' from the viaduct, to fossil hunting at Robin Hoods Bay and cycling through the Yorkshire Dales, it was the holiday that I want my children to remember the way I do from my childhood.

Great review, and a repeat booking from this guest. We always aim to keep our standards high

"Great location with fantastic views"

Excellent value accommodation right on the bank of the River Esk. Lovely balcony overlooking the river, well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Make sure you take some bread to feed the ducks who visit the house daily! We will most definitely stay again when we decide to revisit the area.

Once again, lovely to hear such glowing reviews, many of our guests stay with us again which is always great to see

"A truly great location and roomy accomodation!"

My family of 4 including 2 teenagers stayed for 2 weeks at the property just in time for all of the dafodils to bloom. We live in Canada and are used to large rooms so we were looking for a spot that would give us room to not feel crowded. There was tons of room for all of us. We never had to fight for a bathroom with 2 full and one half bath. The kitchen was very well stocked with tools for someone who actually cooks! No junky kitchen stuff! We were looking for a spot that we could walk from most days. The walk into Whitby on the Viaduct was just lovely! Very clever resident ducks would come waddling over when they hear us outside... We did our best to keep them fed! The welcome book had tons of really great suggestions for all kinds of things to do in North Yorkshire. The only real complaint was the lack of WIFI. My kids really missed being connected. A truly great location and roomy accomodation! I would definately stay again!

Great to have such a glowing review, we always aim to keep our standards high and enjoy hearing that we have helped people have wonderful holiday
