About Mrs Victoria Carter
'The Hideaway' is owned by Victoria & David Carter. We bought the holiday cottage because of our love of Whitby and the surrounding area. We have three young children who all love visiting Whitby, enjoy the beaches and the coastal walks. Living less than an hour away we are very familiar with the area so if you have any questions we are more than happy to help.
Mrs Victoria Carter purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Mrs Victoria Carter chose Whitby
'The Hideaway' for us is perfect as it is set in the very heart of the Old town of Whitby, so within seconds you are midst the vibrant atmosphere but once you step back inside the cottage it gives a real 'away from it all' feel. The location is second to none with eveything from pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops and Market, literally on your door step and with the beach only a stones throw away! Whether you decide to spend your time in Whitby, go off exploring the surrounding area or prefer to be more active, the list of things to do or beautiful places to go is endless.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have decorated the cottage with style but to make you feel 'at home' from the minute you arrive, so really hope you enjoy it!

Stayed here with a group of 6 adults, and we loved it. One of the downsides is also a positive for this property, whilst there's no parking and you can't pull up right outside to unload or load cars...this is because it's so central, so perfect when you've ditched the car elsewhere and are exploring on foot. House is furnished well, and very stylish. Only two comments I can make are that one of the taps in the en-suite was dodgy and in need of attention, and an electric kettle wouldn't go amiss so you're not waiting ages for it to boil on the hob. That said, perfectly comfortable accommodation, even for 6 adults. Kitchen was too small for all of us to be in at once, but then who's cooking when you're a 30 second walk from takeaways, cafe's, pubs and restaurants?! Lovely welcome note and bottle, and thoughtful touches throughout. Would definitely return!
Great cottage, great location
Beautifully presented, well equipped cottage right in the heart of the shopping area. Everything is literally on your doorstep. Centrally located for all the sights and attractions. I would definitely recommend this property if you are thinking of staying in Whitby.
