I will meet you on arrival to provide keys, information and show you around.

A spacious, clean, well appointed house, perfect for our family get together and summer holiday. The conservatory was perfect for relaxing while keeping an eye on things in the kitchen and sitting room. The house was spotless, and well maintained. Loads of off-street parking, and...More

About the neighbourhood
The popular coastal resort of Whitby has much to offer for people of all ages. Visit Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook Museum, the Whale jawbone, the harbour and beach. If you enjoy walking or cycling this is a great area to visit. With lots of tea rooms, coffee shops and restaurants to choose from plus a good selection of shops, Whitby is an ideal location for a holiday or shorter weekend get away. Explore nearby, smaller coastal resorts such as Sandsend and Runswick Bay or travel inland to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park and scenic villages of Goathland and Grosmont.
Getting around
The train station is close by (a 5-minute walk down the hill), as is the bus station. Public transport can be accessed within 10 metres of the house, so you can jump on a bus to go to and from the town centre or head of to Scarborough or York for the day.
Whitby also has plenty of taxis that can be pre-booked or are available at the Harbourside.
Parking in the town centre can be difficult on a weekend and over the Summer months and is expensive, so I would recommend the 5-minute walk to the centre of town if you can manage it.

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 will pass a petrol station on the left-hand side and at the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Mayfield Road. Continue straight ahead onto Prospect Hill. At the traffic lights turn left following the sign to the Town Centre. Hanover Cottage is immediately visible approx.100 metres ahead on the left-hand side. It is a prominent, detached, white house next to the road. Turn left into the driveway just past the house (opposite Meadowfields). I would advise reversing onto the drive as there is not 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 at the traffic lights continue straight ah...
