Quiet Centrally located House with off street Parking And Garden



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
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.

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

About the Owner

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.

Very impressive house located in an ideal area of Whitby

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. 8 adults stayed comfortably.

The house is very clean and tidy.

Everything you need to stay was provided. Even down to little details of hand wash provided in each bathroom.

We have stayed in properties rated 'luxury' but they did not meet the standard of this house.

Would recommend to stay to anyone and will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we would be very please to accommodate you and your friends should you wish to return. We do try and provide guests with a comfortable stay in the house. We purchased the property due to it's location and as it's has off street parking which is vital especially during peak season. However, we are consistently looking at how to improve and develop the property internally and externally and are currently in the process of looking at extending the off street parking. Thank you again for taking the time to complete a review. Kind regards, Jonny, Lee and family.

Brilliant location and lots of room within.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with kids, grandkids and inlaws! The house had everything we wanted and we were lucky enough have the attic bedroom so were far enough away from those who wake very early, so as not to disturb our beauty sleep!

The kitchen was exceptionally well -equipped, with some real personal touches.

If we had one slight issue it was with the lower ground floor dining room. ..it was a bit of a faff carrying everything downstairs and back again.

The location is perfect. ...handy for everything in Whitby and easy for buggy/pram pushing.

Owner's Response: We're really please you enjoyed your stay in our house and you had everything you needed for your stay. We take on board your comments and all feedback is helpful. We have considered how best to utilites the space in the house and for now and given it's layout feel the downstairs is a good place to gather over a meal and entertain. A table with a toaster and kettle down stairs has been suggested and an idea we will take up plus we will install a small frigde as there is plenty of space for one. There is dining for four in the kitchen for more casual dining.

Wonderful Whitby

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, spacious, warm, extremely well equipped. We took our mums, son and daughter-in-law for a short break. The house is close to town, beautifully furnished and decorated and perfect for a family get together. We loved the attention to detail, including top quality bedding, towels and furnishings. The kitchen is very well kitted out and designed with double oven, plate warmer, dishwasher and integral recycle bins. The sitting room is comfortable and the basement dining room was ideal for dinner and a game of Scrabble! Definitely a place to revisit. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of your stay at our house in Whitby. All feedback helps us know what we are doing right and where improvements for future guests can be made. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay and had everything you needed. We are always looking at improving the property. One priority is to get more soft furnishings in the basement dining area so it can have multiple uses and be another place to relax with friends and family plus either a coffe table or more side tables in the sitting room. Thank you again for reviewing your stay and we look forward to having you stay with us again. Lee, Jonny and family.

Lovely house and great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house and great location. The house was well equipped and we had everything we needed. The house was very clean and the facilities were as listed on the website. The house was furnished and decorated to a high standard. Parking is difficult if you have more than two cars but this was only an issue for us on Saturday /Sunday and we managed to find somewhere about 10mins walk away- it was very busy! We would definitely recommend this lovely property to friends and family and we would stay there again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our house. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and had everything you needed to make for a compfortable stay. We only recently purchased the property and to have such positive feedback reassures us, as we aim to provide a service so people can have a comfortable stress free holiday. Whitby can get very busy and parking can be issue but we are fortunate to be able to provide secure off street parking. We are looking into extending the parking for next summer to accommodate parties with multiple cars. Thank you again. L Blomfield

From the Owner

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 as it has everything we were looking for and it is such a lovely house in a great location. Plus if you have even been to Whitby you will appreciate the benefits of your own private parking.

From the Owner

Benefits for use 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 stone 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 in the garden, 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.
