About Mrs Bridgett Dickin

My husband and myself only purchased this property in 2014. But we have visited Whitby many times and after falling on love with the place decided to purchase this beautiful holiday cottage on the River Esk.

Why Mrs Bridgett Dickin chose Whitby

We bought this property mainly because of its location. It is out of the main town of Whitby, but is only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk in to the town. It has fabulous views of the River Esk and the Viaduct that stands above it. There is a train line on the opposite side of the river on which the steam trains runs between March & October. If you like walking there are many lovely walks within Whitby and the surrounding countryside.

Beautiful , peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous with all the facilities you might need. Because it is the end house it feels very private and has perfect views over the estuary. The changing tides bring diverse wildlife to the area including little egrets, herons and many other birds. We even saw a kingfisher. We enjoyed walking into Whitby via the cindertrack walkway over the viaduct. We will hopefully make a return visit and highly recommend the property.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here, the house itself was the best we have stayed in - extremely well equipped and all to a very high standard. Set in a beautiful location, the pictures on the listing do not do it justice. All in all a lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Whitby and this was made even better by staying in this wonderful house. It has all the amenities you could dream of and the beds & pillows were so comfortable we have never slept so well. The property is beautiful and the location is great, it was a fantastic base to explore Whitby and further afield. We shall definitely be returning and would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Thank you Kath, Bryan, Mabel & Graham
