About Jan Sherlock

We have owned the property as a holiday home for 3 years, but love the area so much, we have bought a new home just outside Whitby. We can therefore be on hand to ensure excellent customer service.

Jan Sherlock purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jan Sherlock chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We both love Whitby. The town has a unique character and is attractive all year round.

We both love walking and were attracted by the close proximity of many attractive walks including coastal paths and moorland village walks. The availability of good public transport (trains & buses) makes it easy to enjoy linear walks.

Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside.

Whitby is situated on the Yorkshire Coast. To the south lies the coastal villages and resorts of Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington.

The location of the apartment on Skinner St is ideal as it is only a few minutes walk to the harbour and all amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

This well equipped 2 bedroomed newly refurbished apartment, within a grade II listed building, offers first class accommodation for families and couples and is located near the West Cliff. It is well positioned within a few minutes walk of Whitby town centre, harbour and all amenities.

From the old town of Whitby, 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St. Mary, churchyard on Whitby's East Cliff gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write his world famous book, Dracula.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of staying at Hildegard House last summer. We found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and spacious.

It had all the amenities needed for a family holiday, with 1 double bedroom and 1 very large family bedroom able to accommodate 2 adults and two children, ideal for our party of four adults and two children. The kitchen was well equipped and a nice sized living/dinning room.

The location of Hildegard House is perfect for all amenities including the beach, shopping and quite close to the lovely park.

We found it perfect for our party of 6 and have booked it again for this summer.

Lovely spacious apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment which has everything you need for a break away. The apartment is in a perfect location for walking to the Whale Bone Arch, The Harbour, The Abbey and there are numerous shops, cafes and restaurants close by. Although it is in walking distance of the main attractions it was lovely and quiet. Would highly recommend this Apartment. We had fantastic weather too!

Thank you Phil & Jan for letting us stay!

Very well fitted out

Enjoyed the convenient location of the apartment, doing away with the need to use the car all the time. The parking was fine. The arrival details were very clear. There was everything we needed supplied in the apartment. A really nice stay, wish we had booked for an extra 2 nights

Absolutely first class

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location in Whitby. A short stroll to the front with loads of shops, cafes, pubs in the vicinity. The apartment had everything you could wish for. Small details like tea towel and washing up liquid were provided for. Will definitely be back. Thanks again. Richard and Christine Parker
