• 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.

    A lovely cottage in an fantastic location overlooking the harbour. Ideally situated on the more'historic' side of Whitby and within easy walking distance of all shops and amenities. THe fact that we have been returning every March for over 20 years tells its own story

    Lovely spot but be aware that there is a constant stream of people passing the front windows. You need to keep the nets closed and can't really enjoy the view.

    Excellent location, peaceful with wonderful views. The Cottage itself was cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Would not hesitate to book to stay at Captain’s Cottage again.

    Lovely aspect to this house. But not for the feint hearted accessing the narrow cobbled street to arrive and park. Clean and comfortable.

    Beautiful cottage in a great location. Very big inside lots of room for our family of 6 with a toddler. Excellent selection of equipment like Crockery and cutlery. Handy having 2 parking spots,a premium in most seaside towns. Close to all local attractions. Loved and cannot wait to come again.

    As a group of friends we were all delighted with the standard and comfort of this cottage. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay. Pity about the weather but we still thoroughly enjoyed it.
