About the property

4 bedroom Georgian Townhouse Short walk to the Beach, Train station, old Town, cafe, shops and restaurants

Stunning Grade II listed Georgian Townhouse with garden and private parking conveniently situation within the historical coastal town of Whitby. Whitby is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire with its superb coastline, inland, the spectacular North Yorkshire Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants, independent shops. It's safe sandy beaches and it's association with Bram Stokes, Dracular, Captain Cook, and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 step.

The property is access via the quiet street of Walker Street, and the back garden backs onto Pannett Park. The park houses Pannett Art Gallery and Museum, lovely gardens and a wonderful children's playground. It is a short walk to the old Town and beach, Cinder track and 3 miles to Sandsend.

We can not accept bookings that start or finish on Sundays, as the cleaners do not work.

Do feel free to contact me with any queries relating to dates as I am more than happy to assist where possible.

About L Blomfield

We are a couple with two small children from Nottinghamshire. I'm originally from New Zealand while my partner is a born and breed Nottingham man.

We’ve been looking for a home away from home for some time. Somewhere that wasn’t to far to travel where we could decide last minute to pack the car and go. A beautiful coastline that is safe for our children to spend both summer and winter days (I love the beach in any weather) and Whitby also appealed as my partner enjoys fell running and cycling so having the Moors and surrounding track/walks at our doorstep is a bonus.

Whitby’s history also appeals to me with it’s connection to New Zealand (captain Cook) We still have lots to learn about the area but we look forward to exploring it more as our children grow.

L Blomfield purchased this house in 2015

Why L Blomfield chose Whitby

We holidayed in Whitby during the summer and we fell in love with the area so started looking for a home away from home. Staying in a small property over the summer enabled us to focus on what we needed as a family to holiday comfortably. We walked by the house but it wasn’t until after we viewed a number of properties that we decided to looked at it seriously. Its such a lovely house and it has everything we were looking for including being a great location. Plus if you have even been to Whitby you will appreciate the benefits of off street private parking.

What makes this house unique

Benefits for us of the property is having secure private car parking and having room to move and grow with two small people. It's not to big but a comfortable easy home to manage. It centrally located a stones throw away from the cafes, bars and restaurants on Skinner street, the Old town, train station, supermarket, harbour and beaches. We are looking forward barbecues on the terrace, exploring the area and building family memories here. We hope you enjoy our house, beautiful surrounding Towns, Beaches and Moors as much as we are looking forward to.

Comfortable, short walk to all amenities, car parking spaces

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week. 6 adults and a toddler. There was plenty of room for all of us. It was a real bonus to have car parking spaces outside the property. The property was very well equipped.
