About Lobster Pot Cottage

Lobster Pot Cottage has all of the charms of a traditional Whitby holiday cottage with every modern convenience you expect from a contemporary holiday home. The spacious property sleeps six people in three bedrooms, two of which have ensuites. It is in the West Cliff area of Whitby, within walking distance of attractions, cafes, shops and friendly pubs like the Buck Inn. The living space is open-plan in style suiting families and friends, and you'll be pleased with the dedicated off-street parking space, especially if you're staying during the summer holidays. With Whitby's famous beaches only a short walk from the door, and the North York Moors National Park just over a mile away, you'll never run short of things to do.

Whitby is a fantastic seaside town with an impressive history. Not only has it produced one of Britain's best-known explorers, Captain Cook, but it is famed for the ruins of Gothic Whitby Abbey - as inspiring today as when Bram Stoker visited in 1890 and used it as inspiration for his famous novel, Dracula. Lobster Pot Cottage is within walking distance of Whitby's best attractions and three beaches. A walk around town will take you past The Endeavour Experience, a full-sized floating museum of Captain Cook's ship that took him to Australia. You can climb the 199 steps to the pretty church of St Mary's, where you'll be grateful for the opportunity to sit down and admire the panoramic coastal view. Book a sightseeing trip on the heritage North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which goes from Pickering to Grosmont across the moors stopping at Levisham, Newtondale and Goathland famed for being Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter films and Aidensfield in Heartbeat. Alternatively take a guided walking tour of Whitby (or a ghost walk, if you're brave enough).

Many guests don't touch their car for the duration of their holiday. Instead, they make good use of the excellent network of footpaths and cycling routes leading along the coast to Runswick Bay, Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay, and Scarborough. Alternatively, the train between Whitby and Middlesborough which runs along the Esk Valley stops at places like Grosmont (the junction for the heritage railway), Danby, Castleton Moor, and Great Ayton. Whitby hosts an eclectic mix of fun festivals that include the bi-annual Goth Weekends, music festivals celebrating folk and northern soul, and an annual Fish and Chips weekend.

Lobster Pot Cottage is available for bookings all year round. With three generously sized bedrooms and three bathrooms, it's perfect for families, extended families, and friends.

Location (The North York Moors)

Accommodation Comprises:

Lobster Pot Cottage is a modern property built in a traditional style near one of the oldest streets in Whitby, on a plot historically used by fishermen to store their nets and, you guessed it, lobster pots! Accommodation is over three levels.

Ground Floor:

  • Natural wooden flooring and fresh painted walls are an attractive feature of the ground floor, tying the rooms together in a cohesive way. The ground floor is primarily open plan, with the kitchen/dining and living areas laid out in an L-shape.
  • Living room with leather sofas, a solid wood coffee table, a TV, and a fireplace with a flame-effect fire. There is Ultrafast Fibre Optic Broadband throughout the cottage.
  • Modern kitchen with fitted cupboards and appliances, including a full-sized oven with a four-burner gas hob and a slimline dishwasher. There are plenty of plates, glasses and cutlery for six people and a dishwasher to help wash up. The cottage also has a washing machine.
  • Dining area with a country-style pine table and six chairs. A highchair is available.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.

First Floor:

  • Spacious twin bedroom with two full-sized (3ft-wide) single beds separated by a bedside table with reading light and a wardrobe.
  • Second bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables with reading lights, and proper storage. This room benefits from an ensuite with a shower, WC, and a handbasin and has space for a travel cot, which can be provided on request.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Second Floor:

  • Large double room with a kingsize bed, proper storage, and views over the rooftops to St Mary's Church. An ensuite has a shower, WC and a handbasin,

Outside: Unusually for properties in the heart of Whitby, this holiday cottage has off-street parking for a family-sized car. The owners also provide a 'scratch card' parking permit allowing a second vehicle to park in nearby streets on restricted-time bays (map provided showing the locations with arrival details). The cottage has a small private patio garden with furniture to the rear.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are all included. A good-quality travel cot and highchair are available on request. Guests to provide beach towels and cot bedding if required. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season. Pets and smoking not permitted.
