About the property

House in Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire, England - Within 5 Minutes Walk Of Everything

Whitby is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire with its superb coastline and, inland, the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, fascinating shops, safe sandy beaches and, of course, the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps. The Anchorage is a spacious four bedroom, Grade 2 listed Georgian house situated in the heart of Whitby, within a few minutes walk of the harbour, shops and beaches. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard, retaining many original features such as panelling and beamed ceilings.

About Terry Narey

This house has been our holiday home for the past 15 years. Whitby is a truly unique town which seems to defy the pace of change in the world today.

Why Terry Narey chose Whitby

We bought this house after renting it for a week. We loved the space and the homely atmosphere. And of course Whitby is a truly fascinating place.

What makes this house unique

This is great house for larger parties or two families with plenty of space to spread out, and unlike many Whitby properties it has separate lounge dining room and kitchen and normal stairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The cottage was beautiful, the location was perfect, and Whitby as always wonderful. We had a fantastic holiday. I would recommend it to anyone."

"The location, facilities, and overall standard of the property were great. Everyone enjoyed the break thanks to the excellent base we found at the Anchorage."

Quirky house and conveniently situated

  • 4 of 5

House was warm, comfortable and well equipped. We were there for an event at the Pavilion so it was in an excellent location. We were able to unload our cars outside and park nearby.
