About the property

3 bedroom/ 3 bathroom town house sleeping 8 people in the centre of Whitby town.

Navy House was finished in July 2017. As we are a brand new property please do email with your dates, we might be able to assist you with a short break or odd dates arrivals.

Navy House is a newly renovated Victorian town house in the centre of Whitby, just behind the harbour and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway station. We have three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an en suite cloakroom, drawing room, snug and huge kitchen diner. The house is on Cleveland Terrace, just a three minute walk to the harbour and the centre of town. The house benefits from a sunny south facing patio with garden furniture and BBQ and an artificial lawned area to the front, together with a back yard.

The house is built on a hill so you can enter from two levels. It is a typical Victorian Terrace so there are a lot of stairs to bear in mind if there are any mobility issues. There are three flights in the house and are typically Victorian and fairly steep. Whitby is built on hills, so it is characteristic of the town but the road from the harbour to Cleveland Terrace does get steep at a couple of points.

As there are many stairs in the house it may not be suitable for very young children or toddlers, or the elderly or infirm. A point to note, we don’t have any stair gates in place. Please feel free to talk through the house with me.

Entering the house from Cleveland Terrace you will find a large Victorian drawing room with Smart TV, DVD player and a wood burning stove. The drawing room is painted in Farrow & Ball Stiffkey blue paint with a traditional maritime feel with antique furniture and coastal finds and artwork.

There is another reception room on this floor that we call the snug which also has a new wood burning stove TV and DVD player. Having two living rooms is ideal if you are two families, or one for the children and one for the adults.

On the first floor is a newly refurbished bathroom with an over the bath power shower, WC and wash basin.

The stairs will take you downstairs into the huge basement kitchen /diner which again has just been completely renovated to include a 5 burner gas hob, two Bosch single ovens, dishwasher fridge and freezer and a microwave oven. There is a dining table to seat 8 people and a third wood burning stove. There is also a table with bench seating, giving you an alternative table meaning there can be dining seating for 14 - 16 people if required.

Everything in the kitchen is brand new, plenty of glassware, cutlery, porcelain dinner ware etc. There is a kettle, 4 slice toaster, sandwich maker, Dualit hand mixer, slow cooker and brand new Tefal cookware.

The kitchen / diner leads out to a utility room with washing machine and a second larder fridge, and then into the back yard where there is another patio table and chairs where you get the sunshine first thing in the morning. This back yard area is ideal for storing bikes, beach equipment etc and can be used to drop off shopping at the back door. There is an outside tap there for washing off sandy dirty wellies/boots.

There are three wood burners in the house, which you are most welcome to use. we do not provide and logs or kindling so you need to bring these yourselves. If you are not used to using a log burner, please see the instruction manual so you don't set off the fire alarms!

There is a security keypad on the door meaning it is safe to leave items in the back yard. You enter this back yard from the rear of Esk Terrace.

From the first floor you go upstairs and there are two kingsize bedrooms with antique furniture and Victorian cast iron fireplaces with brand new hotel contract grade comfortable mattresses and white Egyptian cotton bed linen. There is the main house bathroom on this floor, again with over bath power shower, WC and basin.

There is a small staircase leading to the converted attic space which has four full size single beds and an ensuite with a WC and wash basin. Again we have bought contract grade mattresses and have Egyptian cotton bed linen.

Outside to the front of the property is an artificial grassed area and sunken patio with wooden garden seating, umbrella, gas BBQ and plenty of fairy lights. This is South facing and is a real sun trap.

About Lucy Naish

I'm Lucy Naish. My sister and I bought Navy House in March 2017 as we wanted a holiday house that we could use ourselves and share with others. We wanted to be in the centre of town close to the bars and restaurants, but wanted a proper house that we could live in comfortably rather than a tiny cottage and needed some private parking.

Lucy Naish purchased this house in 2017

I think I was the first guest to stay in the house, slight reservations that it would not be finished, but in all honestly our stay was amazing, truly a home from home. The beds and linen where so comfortable and luxurious, the furnishings are a tasteful mix of family antiques with ultra modern kitchen and bathrooms, super powerful showers. Everything is brand new. Slightly nautical feel without being seaside naf. The 2 parking spaces really make a difference as Whitby is a nightmare for parking, in addition the surrounding streets are all good for extra parking. Loved the BBQ patio area and South facing garden, we were blessed with the sun so took full advantage. Only 4 mins walk from the harbour, perfect location. Owners really helpful and prompt to come back to us. Especially loved the hat wall!!!!!!! Already rebooked loved it thanks for a great holiday girls. Karen Wells - Harpenden

Beautiful house, gorgeous décor and fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for my sister's 40th birthday celebration and were so pleased when we arrived, the house is absolutely stunning. We had 3 generations in our party and the set up of rooms was perfect for this. The two sitting rooms meant one room could be dedicated to toys and cartoons for the 3 and 1 year old and the other kept a bit quieter to relax in. The kitchen diner was superb so much space for cooking dining and playing the odd party game. The kitchen was so well equipped as was the rest of the house. The location was absolutely perfect for us, quiet with only a short walk into the centre of Whitby. Overall we had an amazing time and couldn't recommend this more.

Beautiful house very clean and comfortable with everything you need and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six friends stayed over new year and loved it, the two bathrooms plus separate wc was really handy and is one of the reasons we were interested in Navy house. Lucy Emailed me to say we could go earlier in the day as the previous people had left a day early which was much appreciated. we had a lovely stay and We would definitely like to stay here again when we return to Whitby

Beautiful and comfortable home with everything you need and a stones throw from the centre of Whitby

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in a lot of places in Whitby over the years but none as spacious, comfortable and well equipped as Navy cottage. Everything feels new and top of the range and everything you need is provided. The beds are comfy and the kitchen/dining area is a brilliant space for spending time over a meal, the outside areas and car parking spaces are a definite bonus too now that must of the streets are permit holders only.

We loved our stay and will definitely look to book again in future

Stunning house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fantastic weekend. The Navy House is just perfect! Great location, only 5 mins walk into town and the house has everything you could possibly need. We felt very at home with all the beautiful art and decor. Lovely quality bedding and towels - the place was very comfortable and clean. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. There are lots of stairs but this is to be expected in this type of property. Can be tricky with kids which the owner warned us about but the way the house is laid out with plenty of entertainment space it was easy to contain the kids! We were sad leaving as we felt very much at home in your beautiful house. Thank you so much for our stay - we will be back!!
