Overview

About the property

Maisonette over two floors, in Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors

Our maisonette is situated on popular Silver Street and has private access at ground floor level (below our other lovely maisonette - see owners direct: code number 8134873). The property has a small entrance hall with an elegant wide staircase leading off to first floor bedrooms and bathroom . Also off the hall is a good sized lounge with original period features including a large bay window and careful attention to furnishing and décor to complete the period feel in keeping with the lovely seaside setting. Through the lounge you will find a spacious and bright dining room with again, lots of attention to décor , a great room to eat together or sit around the table and enjoy our selection of games. The kitchen is bright , newly fitted and well equipped. It leads out to a small outside space which catches the afternoon sun. Upstairs we have two bedrooms , the main bedroom has a lovely period feel and is very bright having a large bay and another large sash window. It is furnished in keeping with the period of our property with a touch of glamour and romance ! The second bedroom has twin beds. We have used a seaside palette in this room and it also has a large sash window, making it a bright and welcoming space. The bathroom is of family size with lots of space and we have again tried to maintain the period , seaside theme . The landing and staircase area that links the two floors is also spacious and gives a great feeling of space to our property. Our property is comprehensively alarmed for smoke and carbon monoxide. Please note this is a NON SMOKING accommodation and we allow one small dog.

About Jenny Rogers

We are Jenny and Lee Rogers. We have always loved Whitby and finding ourselves spending more and more weeks up there over the years , we decided to buy our own place there (much to the delight of our children and grandchildren ). We spend about 6 weeks to 8 weeks per year in the property and provide you with the opportunity to share it the remaining times.

Jenny Rogers purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jenny Rogers chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We bought this maisonette because we already owned the maisonette above it - Chimchimney, 15a Silver Street. Being the bottom two floors this maisonette provides an easier access than Chimchimney and provides a more generous level of accommodation having the benefit of a kitchen and bathroom extension to the rear. The property also has a small south facing outdoor space to the rear, ideal for parking bikes or dogs. We love its location and easy access it offers to Silver Street which is rapidly obtaining its own identity as a shopping street with craft shops, fish and chip shop, cheese shop, bistro, etc. P.S Jenny thinks that it gives you a hug !

What makes this apartment unique

It provides an extremely spacious accommodation for a 4-person property with direct access to Silver Street. The main bedroom is spectacular with period furniture a large bay window . The location is perfect to explore all aspects of the town. The car park 20 yards away can be a blessing when there are no spare spaces to be found on the roads.

Great location, lovely little house, perfect for a family break!

  • 4 of 5

The house was the perfect size for our family of four. The location was perfect for us popping in and out of the centre of Whitby. We packed loads into our four days here and the house was the perfect base. Good size, lots of space, comfy beds, lovely and warm!! A separate dining room made a home from home experience for us at breakfast times etc

The house was a maisonettes and we knew this, but the noise at night was a little annoying by the third night. The people above us sounded like they were in the house with us, banging and shouting and stomping around. Woke us up at least twice a night which isn't what you want on a relaxing break, so I would bare this is mind if we ever came again. This was nothing the owners could do anything about and we did expect to hear people walking by which was fine.

Fantastic property everything you could wish for.

  • 5 of 5

Having already stayed at the upstairs property we knew we would have no problems with downstairs and it lived up to our expectations. Warm, clean,comfortable and furnished beautifully. The location is ideal with no real need to use a car as everything is in walking distance . Even though it is situated close to everything it still remained quiet and peaceful. A bonus to this stay was actually meeting the owners who were delightful and obviously loved Whitby as much as us. Can't wait to come and visit again thanks for a wonderful stay at your property, Jo, Josie and Amy x

Fabulous stay in Whitby

  • 5 of 5

What a find! From the moment we arrived at this beautiful 'home from home' we felt relaxed and happy. My daughter and I have shared many trips away and this was up there with the best of them. The house was immaculate. Everything we needed was included and it occupies a great position in the centre of Whitby but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. Little thoughtful extras like the wine, chocolates and milk were so appreciated and we were warm, comfortable and slept well each night. Parking was easy across the street and not too expensive either, and a great fish and chip shop and beautiful coffee shop within a few steps of the front door was a bonus.

We will be returning to Whitby and we will be hopefully coming back to stay here. It feels like our little personal bolt hole.... but anyone thinking of going too will not be disappointed. Thanks Jenny and Lee.

The owner has tried hard to make this homely. Lots of pretty ornaments. Extras left, like chocolates. Bathroom, dining room, main bedroom pretty. Spotlessly clean. Living room needs some upgrading: carpet and sofas a little shabby. However, upon arrival the house was freezing cold. The heating was off and could not be turned on. We sat with my duvet on which fortunately I had brought. I was uncomfortably cold all night. (Lots of blankets had been left in the living room but I do not like using unwashed blankets which have been used by other people. And I was unsure why they were needed in a hot house?). Owner responded quickly but not until next day could this be fixed. We were told to use a radiator which was locked away but this had "disappeared". Turns out, previous guest had "adjusted" the boiler and turned the thermostat down. Once fixed the house was suitably heated. The house has been split into two and the other attic section is rented. We had very noisy people in the attic section partying all night. I was asked to "speak to them" which could have caused conflict and not my responsibility! In any case, I did try to speak to the upstairs guests but they didn't answer the door. Fortunately, they were quiet on the second night but as there are other people effectively in the same property, I could hear very loud continuous sneezing in the middle of the night! As this is central Whitby, parking is difficult. This combined to make it a less than satisfactory three night stay.

Owner's Response: Lynda we are very sorry you did not feel your stay was enjoyable. I recall you had a bad experience with a previous stay in another Whitby property which involved heating , which is most unfortunate and extremely rare. Our heating was not off, as it is operated by a Hive system , however the previous guest had unfortunately chosen to disregard our advice ,on our information leaflet and on our boiler cupboard door and had altered the boiler thermostat ,,which in turn disabled the Hive thermostat. We did not know this at the time of your evening call, but did ensure that our gas service provider made yours the first call in the morning and quickly identified and corrected the issue. The radiator, it turned out, had been borrowed from our storage cupboard by my cleaning fairy as she had a burst at home. The blankets you mention are decorative throws , which we supply to enhance the feel of cosiness and certainly not for guest wrapping . I am sorry you thought our leather suite shabby as no-one else has ever found it so as for the carpet , guests and dogs will cause wear and tear in constant use and we always replace when we feel necessary.. Our property is clearly described as a first floor maisonette and has our Chimchimney , a two bedroomed maisonette above, and properties to the other side . we could therefore not ascertain where any alleged noise was from , We have had no issue in the past at all. It is most certainly not an attic room and can be seen on Owners Direct 8134873 . We do pride ourselves on our customer service and did feel we had addressed your problem promptly and adequately.
