Margherita Cottage

Margherita Cottage


Church Street,
North Yorkshire,
YO22 4DE


Amongst Whitby's famous red pan tiled roofs, which cluster under the East Cliff and which are overlooked by Whitby Abbey and St. Mary's Parish Church, you will find Whitby East Town Cottages. The cottage enjoys an excellent location, view and atmosphere. Entering from ground level next to Araucaria Whitby Jet Jewelers, two small sets of stairs takes you into the main living area of this three floor accommodation.

A spacious and relaxed living room, with a TV/DVD and views overlooking Church Street, is extended by a clean and fully equipped open plan kitchenette. A small patio, accessed from the kitchen, provides rare outdoor space off ground level for many uses on sunny days. The decor throughout has rustic and local charm with exposed beams, walls and floors all adding to the character of the accommodation. Bedroom 1, on the second floor of Margherita Cottage, features a large double bedroom which again overlooks the cobbled old town. For many guests the fabulous en-suite wet room provides a popular feature of their stay. The wet room also provides rest room facilities for the twin bedroom situated on the third floor. The bedroom provides ample storage space and has television and radio facilities.

Bedroom 2 - Situated on the top floor is a spacious and bright twin bedroom which holds views of the picturesque red roofed buildings across the harbour from an accessible velux window. A short walk away brings you to the Old Market Place, Tate Hill, the beach, the East Pier and the famous 199 Steps - which lead you up to St Mary's Church and the Abbey as well as some superb views of the town and the sea. The cottage also offers the perfect base for visitors looking to explore the North Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors National Park.
