Grounds with picnic tables garden 2 BBQ areas and 2 children’s playgrounds shared. Private parking for 1 car additional on road parking nearby. No smoking. Please note There is an unfenced river in the shared grounds 220 yards away. \n\nA quirky ‘upside-down’ house with designated parking on a small tranquil holiday development just outside Whitby. It is the perfect base for couples and families wanting to explore the North York Moors and the pretty seaside villages of the Yorkshire coast. Capstan Cottage has three bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor whilst the upstairs living area has a small balcony which affords great views of the impressive viaduct built to carry the old railway line over the Esk. Sit with the balcony doors open and listen to the birds sing and catch glimpses of the North York Moors steam train through the trees as it wends its way along the river bank on its way to Pickering through spectacular moorland scenery. Take a trip on the train and enjoy the market town of Pickering with its motte and bailey castle or stop off in Goathland better known by many as Aidensfield - the fictional village of the TV series ‘Heartbeat’ and familiar to many as ‘Hogsmeade’ station in the early Harry Potter films.\n\nWithin the well-kept grounds there is plenty of green space two small playgrounds and picnic tables with gas barbecues provided during the summer months. Walking down through the complex towards the riverbank you may be lucky enough to catch sight of heron fishing for salmon or even a cheeky seal. The cottage is some 200 yards from the ‘Cinder Track’ the old railway line running 20 miles between Whitby and Scarborough which is used extensively by walkers and cyclists. A 20-minute walk across the viaduct with its views down the river will take you to the centre of Whitby a charming fishing port at the mouth of the river Esk. Wander along its cobbled streets lined with welcoming tea rooms and a host of restaurants and quirky shops - or just enjoy the simple pleasure of eating fish and chips on the pier Throughout the year Whitby plays host to many festivals welcoming Goths and Steampunks as well as hosting its own regatta it even welcomes musicians from around the world to the fabulous Musicport Festival. Walk in the steps of Bram Stoker author of Dracula as you climb up the 199 steps to the iconic ruin that is Whitby Abbey and enjoy spectacular views across the town towards the moors and out to sea. The sandy beach to the west of the town with its seafront promenade and colourful beach huts stretches 2 miles to the pretty village of Sandsend. About 6 miles away is the thriving village of Robin Hoods Bay with its narrow streets full of smugglers’ tales and a beach perfect for rock pooling. Beach ¾ mile. Shop ½ mile pub and restaurant 1 mile.\n\nAlthough these properties are approximately 25 yards apart Capstan Cottage ref UK2335 can be booked together with Keel Cottage ref CC243095 to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    We absolutely loved staying in Capstan - it was the perfect location, had everything needed and was extremely comfortable!! Would have been 10/10 on the overall score but for that fact the pool was closed due to current circumstances!

    I’ve just spent the weekend at Capston Cottage with my family and had a great time. We enjoyed the fabulous facilities including the view, the walk on the Cinder Path, the swimming pool and children’s playground. The cottage was exceptionally clean and we had regular contact from Cathy the landlady during our stay. We received a bountiful welcome back including milk, wine and biscuits. One issue that could be looked into is the hot water, there was none when we arrived and once we had ran the heater, it was just a trickle in the kitchen. Additionally the shower is in my view unusable. It was either freezing cold or scalding hot irrespective of settings. There was no way I could risk the children showering, so we used the showers at the pool instead. That said, these are things that can be sorted and if they were this cottage would score tens right across the board. We would certainly stay again and likely will in the future.

    Could not fault this cottage at all .Spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need from kitchen utensils to quality bedding and towels. The owner Cathy was so helpful before ,during and after our stay . Nothing was too much trouble for her . We met Julie the housekeeper who has very high standards of cleanliness (youve got yourself a diamond there Cathy). Our 3 grandsons enjoyed the dvds and the boxed games that were made available to them in fact they were playing monopoly within 30 mins of our arrival. Theres a couple of play areas, bbq and picnic areas which because of the weather we didnt use but would be most welcome in nicer weather. We made use of the indoor pool and really enjoyed it . Cathy had left a welcome pack for us ..tea, coffee,sugar, a couple of packets of biscuits and even a bottle of wine. Would definitely recommend this cottage and we will definitely be returning .

    Beautifully clean and comfortable cottage. Great location for walking, we walked to Whitby a few times and Robin Hood’s bay. Very peaceful setting, we also enjoyed watching the trains.
