It is available all year round and we have central heating in all rooms. Equipment includes full size electric cooker, 42inch tv, Satellite Freeview tv, DVD player & WIFI. All gas and electricity is included.
Binoculars are provided to sit and take in the amazing view from the lounge!
Sorry but not suitable for pets..
Swingbridge View is located right in the centre of Whitby which means you are conveniently positioned to enjoy everything Whitby has to offer by just stepping out of the front door. Enjoy the historic streets in the old town of the East Cliff crammed full of exquisite little shops selling everything from Whitby rock to the world renowned Whitby Jet jewellery. Then take a deep breath and enjoy the 199 steps to the famous Abbey.
A quick walk the other way over the swingbridge will take you to the bustling West Cliff with a wealth of shops and restaurants on offer along with seaside amusements, boat rides, ice cream and arguably the best fish and chip shops in England!
Quite literally a stones throw from the apartment there are dozens of excellent restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. A real gem around the corner on Church Street is a tiny little place called ‘The Humble Pie’. If you like simple pie and peas this is the place for you although getting a table may be tricky!
People always ask ‘which is the best fish and chip shop?’. Well, there’s the world famous ‘Magpie’ across the harbour if you don’t mind the queues but just as good are Hadley’s across the road or the ‘Quayside’ just over the bridge near the fortune teller!
Over the bridge to the right takes you along Haggersgate onto Pier Road past the amusement arcades and the fascinating RNLI museum. Here you can either walk up the Khyber Pass to the ‘Whale’s Jawbone’ and some stunning views of Whitby or keep going to the west harbour wall and lighthouse. Here you will find Whitby beach which has a lifeguard in the summer months and is fairly safe for swimming. There are donkey rides and even beach huts! Just watch out for the chip stealing seagulls. (Don’t feed them, it’s frowned upon by the locals.)
Don’t forget to visit the Dracula experience and the Captain Cook museum and for the brave there’s even the Robin Hoods Bay Ghost Walk. There are fishing trips, fossil hunting, the Whitby Museum at Pannet Park, golfing and even rock climbing.
You can also take a trip down to Tate Sands, below the Abbey, where Dracula's ship was wrecked according to the legend by Bram Stoker who was inspired by the mystery of Whitby.
When the bell rings sit at the lounge window with a drink to watch the bridge opening and the yachts going out to sea and the fishermen returning with their catch in the evening.
There really is something for everyone here in Whitby, please find a selection of leaflets on the desk in the hallway for some ideas to start with!

About Hazel Hutchinson
Retired mother of two from Hampshire now living in Yorkshire.
Hazel Hutchinson purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Hazel Hutchinson chose Scarborough District
After 10 years in Spain I had been looking for a property in Whitby and it took 2 years before I found the right place. Swingbridge View is one of the best apartments I have stayed in during 45 years visiting Whitby.
What makes this Apartment unique
From the entrance off beautiful Sandgate to the Lounge with its 12ft ceilings and breathtaking view of the historic swingbridge, harbour and famous west cliff the location of the apartment really is something else.

Fantastic location, lovely apartment with everything you need
We had a wonderful stay at the Swingbridge View. It was great to be so central and the facilities in the apartment couldn't be faulted, everything we needed to enjoy a very chilled out break. The apartment was warm and cosy the wifi was a great addition for our teenage daughter. If your worried about noise as it is so central don't, there was some noise around 11pm with people walking back home along the narrow pedestrian area but nothing that disturbed our sleep. We loved sitting in the window watching life go by.
Thank you for your lovely comments about our your stay in our apartment. It was a pleasure to have you as guests and hope you visit Whitby again very soon!
All the best, Hazel
Just home from a great weekend and I really can’t fault this place at all. It’s bang in the centre but still peaceful. I would definitely recommend this apartment. It’s clean, comfortable and homely.
Brilliant location. Fantastic, clean apartment. Everything there that you need and a welcome bottle of wine
Really lovely property in the heart of Whitby. Perfect.
Loved this apartment. Location fantastic, excellent property, comfortable and spacious, everything you could need is provided. Highly recommended. Looking forward to staying again!
Great location, noisy revellers
Nice apartment, good location, kitchen sink tap needs fixing. The only parking at the local car park is £100 per week!! The apartment is located near pubs and late night drinkers pass by shouting and arguing with each other. The last few nights there were people moved in upstairs to the look out apartment who were extremely noisy, on our last night they arrived late to their apartment arguing, screaming and fighting with each other. An unpleasant finish to our 7 nights.
A wonderful stay in stunning Whitby.
We had a lovely stay in July in this lovely apartment. Even though it was in the middle of town, we managed to park easily everyday, and the apartment was right in the middle of everything you need. The views were amazing from the front lounge windows looking straight over the river. The beds were so comfortable, and the kitchen had everything you could want. The place was spotless, and the owners have obviously put a lot of thought into the fixtures and fittings. We had a wonderful family holiday in this lovely town and it is our pleasure to recommend this home away from home.
