House in Briggswath, Nr. Whitby, North Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Location, Minutes Away From Beaches, Seaside Villages And The National Park
I am a married international educator with two small children, who was born in Whitby and now enjoy the peaceful charm of the area with my family.
Libby purchased this House in 2012
Why Libby chose Whitby
CarrHillHouse was previously run as a 5 star bed and breakfast by my parents who have recently retired. Owning this luxury house has allowed us to reconnect with the beautiful town of Whitby and the surrounding North Yorkshire Moors.
What makes this House unique
We took over ownership of the property to afford us a family retreat in beautiful surroundings. While here we enjoy cycling, riding the steam train, hiking, fossil hunting and generally exploring the coast line as a family. We hope similar family’s or groups of friends can also enjoy the house and area.

Lovely house in a beautiful area
This is a lovely house, very well equipped and lots of space for our family if 13. The owner was very helpful and there are lots of places to visit near by.
Large family house near Whitby
Very comfortable and warm house with perfect accommodation for our extended family of six adults and five children. Garden is not safe for the children (all under seven) as not enclosed but we spent every day out and found lots to do.
Whitby weekend in September
A great property that is even nicer than the pictures suggest. We were a group of friends and family gathering for a weekend away, and the house more than fulfilled our needs - lots of comfy rooms and plenty of space outside for a BBQ. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend to others looking for an affordable option for a large group in the Whitby area.
Fab for extended family get together
We had a brilliant week at Libby's house. The space was great for our 4 generations of family (ages 2 - 83) and the house is super well equipped with everything you could need. Having 2 lounges was a real bonus too - and encouraged games and chat and reading rather than TV for a change! The location is fab for the coast and moors so we were never short of things to do...Plus the house is so comfy and has great views so even for those who stayed home on the odd day - it was still a treat! Libby was super helpful and responsive. Would love to come back one day.
The house was everything we wanted, Whiby area is a lovely place to visit and explore
