Welcome pack.\n\n Enclosed garden with sitting-out area and garden furniture. Private parking for 1 car additional on road parking. No smoking.\n\nThe Porthole House is perfectly situated on the edge of town just a short walk from both the Cinder Track and the town centre of Whitby. This delightful detached house boasts a private parking space on the drive at the front and a garden at the rear. Once inside there is a comfortable open plan kitchendining and living area where friends and family alike can enjoy the Smart TV and bluetooth speaker system. The master bedroom is upstairs passing the wonderful views seen through the porthole down towards the sea and has plenty of space and an en-suite with shower cubicle and toilet. There is a downstairs twin bedroom which is right next door to the downstairs shower room.\nThis dog friendly house is just 100 yards from the famous Cinder Track which is perfect for cycling and walking. The Cinder Track is an old disused railway line that stretches from Whitby to Scarborough and runs alongside parts of the Cleveland Way. This is a great way to stroll down into the famous Robin Hoods Bay with its breath-taking views and is joined via a very pretty viaduct which sits above the River Esk. Walk down into the bustling fishing town of Whitby just 10 minutes away and under the towering Abbey you will find yourself immersed in history as you wander through the cobbled back streets with its myriad of shops – old and new. Keep an eye on the calendar for one of the many events and festivals that take place all year round from Goth Weekenders to Whitby Regatta Music Festivals to Steam Punks and Scooters there is something for everyone. Whitby has 2½ miles of sandy beach including dog designated areas and many of the pubs coffee shops tearooms and restaurants cater for our furry friends. The Yorkshire coastline is perfect for exploring and there are a number of hidden coves and bays dotted along the coast each with its own special history from Captain Cook to Dracula. There are many photo opportunities in places such as the sought-after Sandsend Robin Hoods Bay Staithes and Runswick Bay all a short drive away.\nHead inland to sample some of the best countryside in the UK. Whether you take a drive or jump on the Harry Potter Express which steams its way through the spectacular scenery to Goathland Aidensfield in the TV series Heartbeat. The Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough is just down the coast and has many attractions from a waterpark an open air theatre with many international acts and bands Peasholm Park and the Sealife Centre. Beach 1½ miles. Shop pub and restaurant ¼ mile. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/144/840/1445666.jpg UK2465

    Perfect holiday cottage for us, close to Whitby but with a lovely patio area if you didn’t want to venture out. A major supermarket with petrol station is really close so you can stock up. We really enjoyed our visit & will be back.

    out of 10

    Overall a lovely place to stay. Whitby was great even in the poor weather we had. Comfortable enough in the Porthole, all the basics at hand and clean. One downside - I got a splinter from the wood rail out in garden. Handy to get out with the dog for short to longer walks. Doggy friendly house and area.



    out of 10

    Very clean, cosy place to stay. Everything you need fir a stay. Dog friendly. Close to Whitby, within walking distance. Would stay again when in the area.

    out of 10

    My husband & I enjoyed our stay at the porthole house after going out sightseeing. It was good to relax in the house and the garden



    out of 10

    Very nice cottage and well located in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. Some of the furnishings were a little tired. Overall, the cottage provided good holiday accommodation.



    out of 10

    Was a nice place but it definitely is not a 5 min walk into Whitby town. We both reasonably fit and couldn’t make it to swing bridge on less than 20 mins and it’s a good slope . I booked it believing it was close as I have an arthritic dog, not allowed to leave on his own so was really stuck !



    out of 10

    Needs a few bowls in the kitchen also a fruit bowl would have nice



    out of 10

    Very comfortable cottage for three to four people, just mind your head upstairs - you'll soon get used to it. On the edge of Whitby with multiple ways of walking into town, you probably wouldn't want to be making many repeat trips in a day though. Fifteen minutes to swing bridge, about 25 minutes to the Spa. In the other direction possible to walk to Sneaton, Ruswarp and onto the Moors or up Eskdale eventually. Pub, the Penny Hedge, and a supermarket, a short walk away. If I wanted to make it even better I would partition off the downstairs bedroom and bathroom from the living area.
