Details

FIXED PRICE ALL YEAR!

Flower Cottage was purchased by us in 2012 after we had spent several enjoyable family holidays in the area and had fallen in love with Whitby's rugged coastline, Medieval history and combination of fun and homespun Yorkshire warmth and traditional values, just a short walk from the town centre.

Major refurbishment and no gimmicks!

This is not a conventional investment type holiday let. This is our well loved second home. We use it regularly and keep it clean, comfortable and homely.

10% of your rent will go directly to the local council to help pay for local services. We would rather help the area than prop up private businesses who often have no real connection with the town or local people. We live our values and employ Dalewood Trust when possible (a local charitable training organisation for adults with significant learning difficulties) to do laundry and supply plants and wooden fixtures for the house and garden. This year they have custom made us new planters and a new bench for our garden.

The house is particularly suitable for families, boasting two attic and two king sized first floor bedrooms.

The second top floor bedroom contains wooden framed twin single beds. A stair gate is a permanent feature at the top of the stairs here to help you keep your youngsters safe.

The largest king sized bedroom features a beautiful bay window and an original, now decorative, fireplace. Also on this first floor, the second King-sized bedroom is bright and cheerful and features a gothic style iron bedstead.

The modern bathroom on the half landing has an effective shower over the full sized white bath and other usual items.

We refurbish large areas of the house every year. This year we have repainted the two top floor bedrooms and had new carpets laid there and on the upper staircase.

Flower cottage has effective gas central heating, a modern, safe electric fire in the lounge and fans to cool the attic bedrooms in the summer months. All heating, lighting, hot water and linen is included in the letting price.

The front of the house has a very smart chipped garden, usually with planters brimming over with seasonal blooms. To the rear of the house, via the kitchen/back door is a small courtyard area where smoking is permitted but not in the house.

Pets are welcome by arrangement provided you care for our property. Pet owners will find the secure, locked courtyard area useful.

There is free parking in Gray Street and the surrounding streets on a first come first served basis, and many visitors have found that they park their cars then walk or use the excellent bus or train services during most of their stay.

The fresh local produce available in the shops in Whitby and its excellent selection of restaurants, hotels, cafes, pubs and take away, always mean that it is hard not to be well fed when here. The town also boasts three major supermarkets and numerous small, local food retailers.

Many visitors enjoy trips on the local North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, particularly as the station is only a two minute walk from the house.

Whitby pavilion (15 minute walk from the house) shows recently released films (and some classics) and accommodates exhibitions, sales and musical and dramatic performances throughout the year. The town has taken on new life recently thanks to wonderfully colourful themed weekends such as Goth (October and April), 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, Pirates and Christmas events. All great fun, usually good natured and safe.

Local free attractions are the best - the gorgeous local beach, rugged North Yorkshire countryside and the views of the lighthouses and ruined St. Hilda's Abbey. Fossil hunting and fishing off the pier are free to all. Golf, organised fishing trips, swimming and other sports (at the local leisure centre), surfing, shooting and horse-riding are also available locally. The beautiful Pannet Park and well-kept Victorian museum are five minutes walk from the house and the Abbey Visitor centre is not to be missed. Information about these and very many other local and nearby attractions are available for you to peruse at your leisure in Flower Cottage and from our excellent Tourist Information Centre at the harbour, five minutes walk away.

Change over day for Flower Cottage is usually a Friday.

£99 a night for a minimum of 3 nights.

Notes

  • Our house was built n 1866. It has original features which means that it is of historic interest but has lots of steps. It has steep staircases and four steps into the house. Admission is possible through the back yard which would mean there would only be two steps down to negotiate to get into the ground level of the house.The staircase up to level one (the bathroom and the two king sized bedrooms) has two handrails. Overall, however, the house is NOT suitable for wheelchair users and those who have signifcant mobility issues.
