Overview

About the property

Spacious period house in central Whitby, 5 mins walk to beach, harbour, 2 mins to shops, pubs, restaurants, in peaceful cul de sac

The Judge's House has a 4 star gold rating from Visit England. You will find an elegant, spacious, well equipped and comfortable house offering high quality accommodation - delivering excellent value for money.

The house is in a great location - a few minutes walk away from fun activities for the children - the blue flag beach, an award-winning play area in Pannett Park, the mini-fairground and scary Dracula experience, the indoor swimming pool and the fossils on the seashore and in Whitby museum.

For the grown ups, a short stroll takes you to the harbour and historic east side with its quaint cobbled streets, where the 199 steps take you up to Whitby Abbey and the most fantastic cliff top views.

For all the family, the North York Moors steam train is a great day out. Hire cycles from the end of the road and enjoy an easy ride along the coast to Robin Hoods Bay and beyond.

On the ground floor there is:-

- a large bay-windowed lounge with sofas and arm chairs that seat eight adults comfortably around a large wooden Victorian-style fireplace with coal effect gas fire (fire-guard provided) and a large TV (with freeview) and DVD.

- a dining room with a large square oak table seating 8 and a gorgeous Victorian side board.

- a new, fully equipped kitchen with granite worktops, a built in gas hob, electric fan oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and drying area.

Generous supplies of crockery, cutlery, glasses, pans, kitchen implements and equipment provided.

- a small conservatory with seating that overlooks the garden

- a neat, sunny sheltered walled garden with seating and well planted with shrubs including roses, honeysuckle, hebes and viburnum, Weber barbeque available

- a downstairs cloakroom with feature seaside wallpaper.

On the first floor you will find:-

- a large and elegant master double bedroom with antique furniture and a built-in wardrobe.

- a comfortable double en suite (wc, sink and shower) bedroom with brass bed head and built in storage cupboards.

- spacious family bathroom with a bath (with shower attachment), sink, wc and a separate shower.

Going up the stairs, past the dramatic feature wall, the second floor has three spacious bedrooms:

- a twin with two 3ft single beds or a super king double bed in large room with built in wardrobe and antique furnishings

- two light and well-proportioned single rooms.

- a fully equipped shower room with wc.

High quality facilities throughout: all the single beds are 3’ wide, comfortable for adults or children, and all the showers are 900mm radius (larger than average). All bedroom curtains are of blackout quality so early morning light will not disturb your sleep.

Bed linen, towels (hand and bath), a choice of pillows (feather and hypoallergenic), a hairdryer in every bedroom and good wifi connection are all provided free of charge. Beach towels and picnic knapsacks (with integral cool bags) are provided.

Children are well catered for with a travel cot (bring your own cot linen) and a high chair provided. A range of games are available and there is an oak chest in the twin bedroom which has a wide range of dressing up costumes including a fairy princess, mini pirate, witch and Count Dracula!

The house has full gas central heating and a pressurised hot water system that delivers good (and uninterrupted) shower/tap pressure throughout the house. There is no extra charge for heating or hot water.

The house is in a cul de sac with residents-only parking on a first come basis. Loading and unloading in front of the house is usually easy to do. For parking, scratch cards are provided for one car in the residents-only area. In addition, there is a large long stay car park within four minutes walk. A parking permit for this car park is provided as part of the house rental from 1 March to 31 October (it is free November to February). Further permits for periods of up to a week can be purchased from the tourist information office in Whitby. The very convenient location of this property very close to the centre of Whitby means that guests do not need to either have (or use) a car during their stay.

Bikes can be stored in the walled back garden.

Pets are not allowed in the property - sorry, but this does mean it is suitable for allergy sufferers.

Bring buckets and spades for a classic British seaside holiday, with plenty of other activities and attractions available in easy walking distance.

This was a perfectly sited and very accommodating property with all the right items

  • 4 of 5

We were 8 people which included 2 children and the property was ideal for our needs. We were able to use its central location to full advantage visiting not only a lot of Whitby, including the Abbey, but also Sandsend and Robins Hood Bay during our 3 day stay.

Great location, lovely house and super hosts

  • 5 of 5

Judge's House was in a great location to get to the Whitby Spa Pavilion. The house itself is lovely and very comfortable. There is space to both come together as a group as well nooks where you can tuck yourself away for some quiet reading. The owners were very responsive and made us feel welcome.

Delightful place, well thought out and with really appropriate decor

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay here. It's so convenient for the town centre and although the parking is awful in Whitby, we were able to manage well with three cars as parking passes were provided for the nearby car park as well as residents' parking for one car.

The house (including kitchen) is very well equipped and very clean. The bedlinen was immaculate there were good towels and it was all very clean. This property represents good value for money. We particularly like the personal touches, the DVDs, books, magazines etc. . We also thought the decor was truly in keeping with the style of the house and enjoyed the little garden at the back. We'd certainly go back again. We also appreciate the fact that plenty of toilet rolls and similar items were supplied. This makes all the difference to how you feel about a rented property. When we had a small problem the owners responded quickly and helpfully.
