About Mrs Victoria Carter

'The Hideaway' is owned by Victoria & David Carter. We bought the holiday cottage because of our love of Whitby and the surrounding area. We have three young children who all love visiting Whitby, enjoy the beaches and the coastal walks.

Living less than an hour away we are very familiar with the area so if you have any questions we are more than happy to help.

Mrs Victoria Carter purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Mrs Victoria Carter chose Whitby

'The Hideaway' for us is perfect as it is set in the very heart of the Old town of Whitby, so within seconds you are midst the vibrant atmosphere but once you step back inside the cottage it gives a real 'away from it all' feel. The location is second to none with eveything from pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and Market, literally on your door step and with the beach only a stones throw away!

Whether you decide to spend your time in Whitby, go off exploring the surrounding area or prefer to be more active, the list of things to do or beautiful places to go is endless.

What makes this cottage unique

We have decorated the cottage with style but to make you feel 'at home' from the minute you arrive, so really hope you enjoy it!

Cosy cottage in great position

  • 4 of 5

A spacious, well-presented cottage, close to great pubs & restaurants.

Warm & welcoming; TVs in all rooms an extra benefit.

An electric kettle needed, the one provided takes ages to boil ...... but only a suggestion

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

The house was stylish and the location was incredibly central. We had a lovely time but unfortunately our 4 year old son was ill during our stay but as it was so central we could take turns looking after him and taking the other children out . Whitby is a lovely seaside town that I will definitely be visiting again and has a real independent feel rather than a tacky feel. I loved the history that surrounds the place and the visit to The Abbey up the 199 steps is definitely a highlight as is the Captain Cook museum and the funny (scary) Dracula Experience. I love Whitby and this house was the icing on the cake.

Attention to detail throughout

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the hideaway it was clear that the owners took great pride in this beautiful property.

Outside the front door we found a pumpkin and broomstick and on entering found tasteful Halloween decor throughout. This created much excitement for my 7 year old daughter who immediately set off to explore the well equipped play room.

The cottage itself was beautifully decorated with everything we could need available.

Although small, the kitchen was extremely functional. There was even a slow cooker available which we made use of. The lounge was very relaxing with a large corner sofa and contained a welcome pack with a list of useful contact numbers.

The large bathroom on the first floor was stunning and I was particularly impressed with the cupboard space in the three bedrooms. Quite unusual for a Whitby cottage.

The hideaway is off one of the busiest streets in the town however there was no noise from the hustle and bustle despite staying at one of the most vibrant times of the year. It was an ideal location for us especially my partner who has limited mobility, as we could pop in for rests and were close to some of the best pubs and restaurants.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone considering a visit to Whitby. A thoroughly enjoyful, relaxing and stress free break.

This fabulous cottage is perfectly situated to explore the amazing town on Whitby! The owners have thought of everything you might need to make this stay comfortable and envoyable! The fixtures and fittings within the cottage are to an extremely high standard and the bathroom is absolutely stunning! We stayed for 6 nights with our two boys and literally didn't want to come home! We can't wait to visit again!!!

A heavenly hideway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week (2 adults/3 teenagers) and thoroughly recommend The Hideaway. All prior arrangements were carried out by the owners swiftly and helpfully.

The property was extremely clean with lovely decor which rally captured the seaside location.

The owners really have thought of everything with a well-equipped kitchen (including some complimentaries like tea/coffee/sugar) and excellent amenities. The property is really well-kitted out, with t.v. screens in all main rooms; WiFi; even multiple hairdriers!

The bedrooms were lovely, with gorgeous bed-linen for a really comfortable and luxurious sleep.

The Hideaway's location really is in the centre of things in Whitby, off a charming alley (Sandgate) full of lovely and interesting shops and close to everything that matters in Whitby. Make sure you check out Magpie Cafe; the moody and special Abbey (try it at night, wonderful!) and the beaches and "bights" of the town.

If you come by car, long-stay parking can be easily arranged through a permit obtained at the Tourist Information office and is cheaper and removed the worry - the permit also covers other car-parks in e.g. Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough - superb!

Other recommendations Falling Foss tea-house (wow!) and Beck Hole's pub (great sandwiches).

This property is excellent and I have high praise for the owners for creating a great and very comfortable base for one to explore Whitby and the surrounding area.
