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

Great to have a large kitchen for everyone to gather in and two fabulous bathrooms so everyone can find some space for themselves! Really well equipped with kitchen and other items. Sky TV, wifi too. All very clean and well presented with comfy beds. I have no hesitation in recommending.

Perfect holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay here on the 18th and 19th November 2016 and I was greatly impressed. The central living areas are huge and the accommodation easily slept 6 adults. I would highly recommend this apartment and will be aiming to book it again.

Fabulous stay in Whitby

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in the turret retreat and had a wonderful time there. The location is excellent and it is very handy to have a parking space in Whitby. We found the place clean and well organized and were welcomed with fresh milk and bread! Two small downsides: dryer didn't work and washing machine sometimes didn't complete the rinse cycle. Also, no wifi as stated and no open wifi networks nearby. Thankfully Cranberry swamp in town was fabulous for fast wifi, as well as gluten-free food! We read more books and watched movies without wifi anyway. There are some DVDs in the flat and it is easy to pick up used DVDs from the charity shops in town. Anyway, we had a great time and the turret retreat lived up to its description. If we come back to Whitby we would stay here again and recommend to others. Thanks!

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.
