About Ann Richardson

Hello. We bought this apartment last year as Whitby is one of our favourite UK holiday destinations. We come and stay in our apartment regularly with our two grandchildren. My children also use this property, as they love this place as much as we do. We come from North Yorkshire so not to far to travel with young children.

Ann Richardson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Ann Richardson chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We had been looking for a property for the last two years in Whitby, we just love the place. It is a small coastal town which has lovely narrow old fashioned streets, fantastic little shops and massive array of restaurants. There is loads of good walks in the area, and some lovely beaches. We love to go the goth weekends, it is like walking through a gigantic film set. The costumes are amazing. Whitby has something for everyone no matter what age you are.

What makes this apartment unique

There is lots of properties to rent in Whitby. But we have better views than most. Huge window from the lounge and master bedroom. Waking up on a morning and sitting in bed looking at the view. Amazing.

This apartment is by far the best we have found in Whitby. Beautiful views, immaculately clean and all the home comforts you could ever require.

We even had a bottle of wine to enjoy on arrival - thank you Ann - we hope to return soon. Lynne and John x

what a wonderful little cottage. amazing location, superb views. lovely and clean. there is a pub above the cottage that does have music on 2 - 3 night a week but to be fair it is normally finished by 11.30 and we didn't find it an issue. Ann is so helpful and the welcome pack including the wine was a lovely touch.
