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.
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.
I found this house after searching for properties within walking distance of Whitby, on the Esk river; a favourite spot for my family and I for years!
I was initially impressed by the location, underneath the striking viaduct, and was not disappointed when I arrived. I was staying with my parents, husband and new baby, and we found the house clean, with all the mod cons we needed and perfect for my 3 month old baby.
Bridgett, who owns the property, was good at emailing directly and I found Owners Direct were good too.
I would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again soon!
We had a fantastic long weekend at this property. Location is lovely - right on the river and so close to the passing steam trains. Our 22 month old son loved watching the boats and trains go past! Lovely walk into Whitby along the Cinder track. The property was very well equipped and spacious. We had a lovely stay and hope to come back in the future! Thank you!
Well equipped house with everything you could need to make you feel at home. Fabulous location with fantastic views over the river with lots of wildlife around. Great to watch the Pickering to Whitby steam train pass by every few hours. Good Base for walking and Whitby centre only a short treck along the cinder track (old railway line). We did a coastal walk to Robin Hoods Bay and back via the Cinder track. Good location for cycling too.
Just returned after a weeks stay at this beautiful property. Party consisted of two families which included two teenage boys so having two bathrooms and a separate loo downstairs was great especially in the morning. Good sized and well equipped kitchen, very large lounge with advantage of having a balcony with seating, flat screen tv's with Sky in the lounge and also the dining room. Excellent wifi is also included. The property is also the closest to the River Esk on the complex, under the viaduct which made sitting out of an evening on the patio very enjoyable. Lots of wildlife, the ducks often came up to the patio of a morning for their breakfast. If you are up early enough you sometimes even see deer and fawns at the rivers edge only yards away. Whitby is only a short walk down the cinder path from the top of the viaduct, supermarket close by and plenty of parking at the property.
Lovely house. Loved the location, plenty of walking direct from the house. Good parking; the key code entry was really useful when we were out separately. Really peaceful, lovely views of the river, we even saw a seal in the river! The first floor lounge and balcony meant that we could all benefit from the beautiful view. My daughter would have liked a lamp in the lounge (she was the only one that mentioned this!!). The blind in the top bathroom didn't work but this was not a major issue. The only thing that will stop us booking this cottage again is that we intend getting another dog soon (we are, sadly, between dogs at the moment), the property does not allow dogs and we always take our dog with us when we go on holiday.
Had a lovely stay in this house.
Has everything you need for a holiday. Clean and well furnished.
Great views over the river and to the viaduct overhead.
Easy walk into Whiby on the Cinder track ,avoids the traffic but bring a torch as it is unlit.
We went as a couple but could easily sleep 6 people.
Hope to be back soon.
The property is a 10 minute drive from the beach. Whitby has a beautiful long, sandy and clean beach.
