About Mrs Bridgett Dickin

My husband and myself only purchased this property in 2014. But we have visited Whitby many times and after falling on love with the place decided to purchase this beautiful holiday cottage on the River Esk.

Why Mrs Bridgett Dickin chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We bought this property mainly because of its location. It is out of the main town of Whitby, but is only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk in to the town. It has fabulous views of the River Esk and the Viaduct that stands above it. There is a train line on the opposite side of the river on which the steam trains runs between March & October. If you like walking there are many lovely walks within Whitby and the surrounding countryside.

We had a fantastic time in Whitby and this was made even better by staying in this wonderful house. It has all the amenities you could dream of and the beds & pillows were so comfortable we have never slept so well. The property is beautiful and the location is great, it was a fantastic base to explore Whitby and further afield. We shall definitely be returning and would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Thank you Kath, Bryan, Mabel & Graham

Lovely clean, spacious and comfortable property for a group of 4 (plus baby!)!

  • 5 of 5

I found this house after searching for properties within walking distance of Whitby, on the Esk river; a favourite spot for my family and I for years!

I was initially impressed by the location, underneath the striking viaduct, and was not disappointed when I arrived. I was staying with my parents, husband and new baby, and we found the house clean, with all the mod cons we needed and perfect for my 3 month old baby.

Bridgett, who owns the property, was good at emailing directly and I found Owners Direct were good too.

I would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again soon!

Lovely property in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend at this property. Location is lovely - right on the river and so close to the passing steam trains. Our 22 month old son loved watching the boats and trains go past! Lovely walk into Whitby along the Cinder track. The property was very well equipped and spacious. We had a lovely stay and hope to come back in the future! Thank you!
