• About Captain’s Cottage

    This end cottage, 100 yards from the beach, enjoys an unrivalled position with magnificent views over the sea, harbour and beaches from both front and side windows and lies at the very eastern edge of Whitby, yet only a short walk, 300 yards, down cobbled streets to the harbour bridge. Captains Cottage is an award-winning holiday cottage and is the one retained by the developers partly for their own family use. Sensitively re-built from a former old smokehouse, the architect designed interiors are spacious and well-proportioned with double glazing, cosy efficient heating and an array of bathrooms/shower rooms. Parking for two cars and an outdoor seating area with picnic chairs are available (both almost unique in Whitby). The cottage is in an ideal position for both summer and winter holidays. Old maritime Whitby with all its history, the famous 199 steps, the abbey, restaurants, pubs and museums are all within a short stroll. Extensive walking including the Cleveland Way is available locally and even direct from the cottage.

    Had a great five day break with our family celebrating my wife's 65th birthday. Ideal location and the bonus of parking next to the cottage.

    We booked this cottage for a family weekend to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday so we had a mixed age group including teenagers. The cottage gave us everything we needed and plenty of space. Location is great & availability of parking a real bonus. Only things that would improve it would be some soap in the bathrooms/toilets and maybe wifi. A great place!

    Can't beat the location and view from cottage. Went last year, but this year could see that an update of interior would improve comfort. Tip take your own towels.

    Great place to stay and plenty of room for 8 adults. Only negative would be the poor phone signal and no internet but if you want peace and quiet that won't bother you.

    Great location and good to have some parking. Wifi would be good as would a pair of scissors in the kitchen! Love it and hope to go again next year.

    This is a lovely cottage in a fantastic location. It is equipped to a good standard but would benefit from wi-fi. There is also poor mobile phone signal. Great if you want to get away from it all!

    A lovely cottage, albeit a little in need of some TLC but with all equipment you need and in a fantastic location with the much needed private car parking.

    The cottage is in a fabulous position with a sea view that you could sit for hours watching. There's no through traffic which is great and parking is a bonus. The bedrooms were all of a good size and exceedingly comfortable. It was relaxing listening to the sea at night to help you drift off to sleep. The bathrooms were lovely especially one having a bath. I would highly recommend the cottage; a week was not long enough!
