Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice apartment, had everything we needed (very unusual ). Love the location, being able to walk everywhere a bonus. Visited Robin hoods bay + runswick bay. Walked to sandsend along beach.

Good coffee at moon and sixpence. Best crab sandwich pub in Robin hoods bay next to slipway (no shell) best grilled fish magpie cafe.

Best place for breakfast sitting in the turret window in the sunshine. Would recommend a stay at whitby in the turret retreat to everyone

A real home away from home. Warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step into the property you feel at home. The spacious apartment is a beauty to behold. Two huge bedrooms with more than enough space for each to have a double/king size and a single/fold out bed in each. Two bathrooms one with a massive bath and the other a shower. The Kitchen is out of this world. Then we get to the lounge. It's beautiful, a fantastic fireplace four chairs and a two seater which is a fold out bed however this is a massive room and even when everyone is sat there is still plenty of room. I have stayed here previously and will be coming back as I love this place so much.

Great location but needs some care.

  • 3 of 5

Nice location for local activities however this property needs some clean up and care. The carpet would benefit from replacement or at least cleaning. The mattresses are very uncomfortable. There is mold in the shower. There simply isn't a feeling of cleanliness and care. It wouldn't take much but sure would make a difference.

Lovey stay in Whitby at the Turret Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at the Turret Apartment. Apartment very spacious with everything you would want for a weeks stay. Not far to walk into Whitby but in a very quiet area. Lovely view looking out to sea. Wouldn't hesitate to come again.

Car: not necessary

On the west side of Whitby in a quieter location, the first floor apartment is 5 minutes walk from the cliff top and beach. Whitby pavilion is close by and the municipal swimming pool is in walking distance. The harbour and attractions are 10 minutes away. Shops and local transport are nearby. Whitby is dominated by the cliff-top ruins of the beautiful 13th century Whitby Abbey. This traditional maritime town, with its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach is a great place for a holiday or short break, Whitby is set among fine stretches of coast with spectacular cliffs, beaches and bays. Whitby is famous for its sea food, Captain Cook and Dracula.
