About the neighbourhood
Hanover Cottage is located on Prospect Hill, which is on the west side of Whitby. It is on the main route to the town centre and it is approximately a 5-minute walk down the hill to the centre of town and the attractions. Pannett Park is nearby and has a fantastic outdoor maritime themed adventure playground. The bus and train stations, Harbour, beach, shops, restaurants and bars are 1Km away and bus stops are near to the property. Guests can park securely on the driveway adjacent to the property, which has room for 4 cars. The house is slightly higher than road level with gardens to the front and side and parking to the rear, therefore it does retain privacy.
Getting around
Whitby is best explored by foot and most attractions are 5-10 minutes walk from the house. Public transport is accessible within 20 metres of the property and there are plenty of local taxis available. If you want to head out of Whitby without taking the car, the train station is a 5-minute walk from the house.

How to get there
Airport: Teesside: 65.0 km
Railway: Whitby: 0.6 km
On A171 Guisborough Road (from Pickering or Guisborough direction): On entering Whitby you'll pass a petrol station on the left-hand side. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Mayfield Road and continue ahead onto Prospect Hill. Turn left at the traffic lights following the sign to the Town Centre, staying on Prospect Hill. Hanover Cottage is approx.100m ahead on the left-hand side. It is a prominent, detached, white house next to the road. Turn left into the drive past the house (opposite the road into Meadowfields). We would advise reversing onto the drive as there isn't space to turn around.
On A171 Stainsacre Road (from Scarborough): Enter Whitby on Stainsacre Lane (A171) and continue onto Heiredale Road (A171). Go over the bridge and straight ahead at the traffic lights on...
