Town: Whitby is one of the most popular locations in North Yorkshire. Situated close to the River Esk it spans up the coast amongst some of the region's finest scenery. The town is rich with historical landmarks and the coastal waters give way to fossils which you can dig up on your own or buy from local vendors. The well-preserved architecture, such as Whitby Abbey, has appeared in some very famous movies and television series. Now lying in ruins, Whitney Abbey is a local landmark that towers almost two hundred steps above the historic St. Mary's Church. Local lore speculates that Dracula himself was laid to rest on the church grounds. In addition to the Abbey, the town itself has a large amount of shopping, fine dining, and theatres to keep you occupied during your tour of this lovely seaside resort.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Service excellent. House spacious, well equipped, lots of unexpected extras, everything needed to cater for a house full of all ages.
Location perfect for us with play area opposite and parking for two cars. We like South side of Whitby, only 5 mins quick walk away, flat route better for pushchair. Downstairs separate area ideal for young couple, ensuite perfect for us who paid the bill.
Everyone, from the 2 year old to the 67 year old loved the decor, tasteful, yet out of harms way, carefully positioned for safety yet with maximum impact. The spacious living room, kitchen and corridors enabled the youngsters to let off steam despite the typical Whitby weather

Really well equipped rental home, ten minutes walk from centre of Whitby or just less than £5 in a taxi. Comfortable accommodation, feels like the owners have put a lot of thought into providing everything to make your stay a good one. Accommodation is over 3 levels so feels spacious. There isn't a garage, it's been converted into a games room/Tvroom but there is parking for 2cars on the driveway. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

This property is spacious, warm, comfortable and well equipped. All of Whitby's many shops, restaurants and other amenities are within comfortable walking distance. 2011 was our second visit and we intend to book again for 2012.
Comfortable and convenient

Lovely house, with plenty of space, apart from the living room, which wasn't that big, but we made a lot of use of the large kitchen so it wasn't a problem. Nice garden, and a small play park just a few steps away from the house, which is ideal for younger children. Great location - about 10 minutes walk to the centre of Whitby, and what a bonus to have two car parking spaces.

Lovely house in an ideal quiet location. Great parking for two cars no need to take them into town as its just a 10 minute walk away. House great loads of space and kids loved the games room on the lower floor. Plenty of rooms we had 3 adults and 2 kids and never even used one of the bedrooms. Kitchen area is great with a large table and plenty of seating in sitting room. Playground across from house is great too. Would recommend shopping at the local Lidl store. Would definitely recommend this property to others.

Comfortable well equipped and large modern house. Owner's very helpful. Good location if you don't mind walking half a mile to Town and the position means you escape Whitby's traffic problems.
Great space if you have children and teenagers with you.

Excellent location, parked the car up and didn't need to get back in it until it was time to come home. Property perfectly matched our familys needs, although would suggest a larger bed, king size or super king in the main bedroom. The room is big enough to take one and would make more comfortable. Would definitely book again.

This was a really nice, clean and well maintained property about 10 mins walk from the centre of Whitby. The house was great and the town and surroundings had enough to keep two kids occupied for a week. We are looking forward to returning to Whitby next year
another brilliant holiday

Top quality property- one of the best places I have ever rented.

This is a clean, well decorated house, within easy walking distance to Whitby town centre. It feels like a home and not just a bare holiday let. A lovely place to return to in the evening. We were lucky enough to meet one of the owners of the property, who was very pleasant and checked that everything was to our satisfaction. I can't think of anything bad to say about it. I can only recommend it.

This was an excellent house for a family. There were 8 of us but there was plenty of space and we were not on top of each other at all.
I am reluctant to write too good a review or it might not be available when we want it again!

The property is clearly a fairly recent new build, and had all the ammenities that you could wish for. The home is split on numerous levels, advantageous if a large number of occupants are staying at any one time. The property is immaculate, spacious, welcoming and is the ideal base for a stay in Whitby itself with the centre being a lovely 10-15 minute walk along the side of the Marina. We have stayed in a number of Sykes properties now over the recent years and this one ticked all the boxes where we were concerned.

A well situated 'cottage' in a modern development a short distance from the town centre. Sitting near the river the area is quiet and has no through traffic and is ideal for supervised children (river1)with a small playpark diectly in front of the cottage.
The cottage itself is very well appointed and well decorated throughout. Even for the most exacting individuals this place is absolutly superb. Roomy with a games room to let even the oldest child hide away for some fun. Well equiped modern Kitchen and very clean and tidy when we arrived. Loved the showers.
An easy walk from the busy town centre and the Abbey it is a great base for travelling around the local area. The car parking also means that you don't have to battle with the traffic in Whitby!!
As it is on three levels it may not be suitable for guests who are a bit less mobile. This is a cottage I would recommend without hesitation and would be delighted to return to. The owners should be commended for the quality of the cottage.
