Overview

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 Yorkshire Moors and Coast

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 house in the heart of Whitby

  • 4 of 5

We found the house very comfortable and well equipped. The house is very central but also quiet so that everything Whitby has to offer is a short walk away. There are lots of things to do without needing to get in your car but when you do, the drive through the moors is stunning. The only downside to the house was that it is next door to a B&B and some of the guests' parking made it very hard for us to park in the allocated space. Also you need to prepare for the noise of the gulls but we got used to it very quickly.

Great place, centrally located with parking! Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This house is centrally located with its own parking for 2 cars which is a godsend as Whitby can be a parking nightmare! We found the house had everything we needed and we were just a short walk to everywhere in town. We were very close to the Bus Station and the Railway Station so had great fun exploring the local area using public transport which again I would recommend.

Definitely recommend...

Great house, very well equipped for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this fab house (17-24 June). With four adults and two small children - the house was very well equipped with all the necessary high chairs, travel cot etc available for use. An excellently located house for Whitby itself & a short drive from so many great attractions. The breakfast/dining room downstairs made for some lovely family home cooked meals when not wanting to eat out & the provision of laundry facilities meant not taking back a weeks worth of washing. Overall - a fantastic week & wonderful house!
