About Tracy Mcgrath

Whitby was my childhood holiday destination and have continued to holiday there with my husband, daughter and chihuahuas along with our foster children.

Tracy Mcgrath purchased this house in 2016

Why Tracy Mcgrath chose Whitby

We have completely renovated this house to make it home from home. But in keeping with a seaside theme and original features of the Victorian Town House. The house offers plenty of space for all the family and our friends often come to stay with us too. So close to the centre of Whitby and a secure private patio to sit out with a glass of wine in the summer. We welcome well behaved pets too.

What makes this house unique

We have a view of the harbour and the famous Whitby Abbey from bedroom 3, with a private out door space to sit out. Free parking on the street on first come first served.

George House is well presented and equipped in the heart of Whitby

  • 5 of 5

George House is situated within a five minute walk from both the town centre and the Harbour. It was lovely to return to the cottage after a day exploring the Yorkshire coast and then chill out before either using the well equipped kitchen to prepare an evening meal or walk the five minutes to the variety of restaurants, whether it be Fish and Chips or a lovely Thai restaurant situated at the Train station.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This property is ideally located in Whitby just a short walk to the harbour.

We stayed Monday to Friday with 4 adults, 3 children and a dog.

The property is dog friendly which was great & unlike most properties I have been in, it didn't smell too much like wet dogs. The front room could have done with a good clean to get rid of the smell of dogs but the rest of the house did not have that problem.

All rooms were clean & tidy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Louise for your review. Not sure if it was your own dog that might have wet dog smell as the guest before you had no dogs and left an amazing review, as did the guest before them. We have never had this problem from any of our guests. The current guest has not mentioned anything either. However I hope to welcome you back again soon.

Cosy, comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Home from home. Loved every bit (bar parking) but nothing is as near to perfect as this. Everything you need and decorated to a wonderful standard. Thanks for the party decor - loved it all.

Beautiful property in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I loved our stay at George House. The house was beautifully decorated with plenty of space for all nine of us including the little ones. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and we had everything we could have wanted provided for us. The house is ideally situated for exploring whitby meaning everything in the town is within walking distance.

We had a fantastic stay and hope to come back again one day. We would not hesitate in recommending George House to others.
