|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
From the roof terrace look down on the crowds and venture out for an evening stroll along Church Street to the famous Abbey steps, or down to Tate Sands, below the Abbey, where Dracula's ship was wrecked. When the bell rings go out with a drink to watch the bridge opening and the yachts going out to sea and the fisherman returning with their catch in the evening. If there's a better spot in Whitby to watch the world go by I've yet to find it and I've been visiting for over 50 years!
A light spacious flat with art work on the walls and a cosy dining/ living room. Sorry but not suitable for dogs. Young children will need supervision on the roof terrace. You can see the view of the Swing Bridge from the roof terrace here:
We are a family of four living in rural France. We love it here but also love returning to Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast.
We hope you will find our property like a 'home from home', with lots of books and dvds!

I've been coming to Whitby for over 50 years and always wanted a bolthole here, so when we saw that this flat with possibly the best location and view in Whitby was for sale we knew we had to have it!
Best fish and chips in the world at the Magpie café according to Rick Stein - and us!
Crabbing! The seaside!
The steam train ride over the moors!
Whitby's charm both old and new - the shops, the abbey, the museum, Dracula! Whitby has it all!
"Wow! This had got to be the best spot in Whitby. Spent a glorious few days here" Naomi, Sheffield
"Beautiful flat, beautiful view, lovely art everywhere. Luxury!Thanks so much". Louise and Ian Derbyshire
"Don't very sell this place without letting us know. Simply heaven!". The Mannings, Herefordshire.
The flat was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay there. We have stayed in Whitby before but usually in a B&B up near The Royal.
The flat was everything it says it is. Clean, convenient and well looked after with stunning views over the harbour. The only downside was the checking in time (4pm) I thought it was a little late for a check-in. We had to park the car (miles away) then wander around for four hours and then lug all our bags back to the flat, as we didn't want to lose our parking space. Overall a nice place to stay and would certainly consider it again when looking for somewhere to stay in our favourite place. Thanks
overall exhalent place to stay well equipped ,good location, good view of the harbor from the roof terrace
will definitely stay ther again
This was our second stay in this flat. We liked it so much last time that we couldn't wait to return. The many attractions of Whitby are, literally, moments away; this makes it easy to pop in and out of the flat during the day between walks and visiting museums etc. Day and night we sat on the roof terrace with our hot mugs of coffee as there was always something to see. The terrace is fantastic.
We were unexpectedly lucky with the weather - it was dry but cold. However, the flat was warm and cosy. Whitby is lovely at any time of year and I'd be happy staying in this flat regardless of the time of year.
Access to the flat is straightforward. Car parking is close by and despite the central location we had no problem dropping off luggage outside the door. John, the owner, has always been very easy to deal with too. We will definitely stay again and I would not hesitate to recommend to friends.
Very sadly, time only allowed us to book 2 nts however, we have really enjoyed our stay. Arrival and entry instructions were easy. Apartment, clean, tidy and comfortable, location great and the roof terrace is the icing on the cake. It was due to rain but the sun won the day and we sat out for breakfast and lunch.
Couldn't fault it in any way and would definitely come back to this place again. Many thanks.
First time visitors to Whitby but John's information re location & parking on arrival was very helpful! The apartment was well equipped with a very homely layout. The bonus for us was the location and the rooftop patio area where we spent a lot of time watching the time go by slowly.Plenty places to eat and drink within a few minutes stroll. First time visitors,but already planning next visits!
We stayed for two nights and were delighted with our stay here. It was the perfect location and in the centre of town. The views from the roof terrace were stunning and we had beautiful weather! The home was much bigger than the pictures show. Plenty of room for two couples and would also suit a family. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend to friends and family!
