We were looking for a something to rent in Whitby itself for a week that catered for our grown up sons to join us for part of the week. We were really pleased with abbey View. Its location is perfect, and pretty much once you have arrived and been lucky enough to find a parking space you could choose to not use your car again until you left. Located minutes from the beach, the train station (you even see the steam trains coming and going when you are washing up), restaurants, shops (including a supermarket), the habour and the abbey itself, it was just what we wanted. The house itself is over 4 floors, and the bedrooms are all lovely. The kitchen, though huge, was slightly oddly laid out so you always seem to be a long way from something you needed and I really struggled to get on with the cooker and there were no manuals to assist me. I don't do too much cooking on a week's holiday but do expect to be able to produce a decent cooked breakfast, but we got there in the end. We particularly enjoyed the food at the famous Magpie Cafe (there are a limited number of tables you can book but do this before you go) and walking along the beach to Sandsend. Would recommend the house and Whitby to friends and plan to return.
