6 Abbey Terrace description

Holiday home
6 Abbey Terrace is an imposing Victorian mid-terraced cottage, centrally situated in the historic town of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Spread over five floors and made up of nine bedrooms (four doubles, three twins, a single and a family room) with three shower rooms and two bathrooms, this cottage can sleep up to eighteen people in comfort. The rest of the accommodation is made up of a fitted kitchen, a dining room and two sitting rooms - one with an open fire. Outside the cottage is a small front garden with patio and some seating and off road parking for two cars. Just two minutes' walk away from all of the amenities of Whitby, including the beach, 6 Abbey Terrace is a fantastic holiday cottage for a large family or a group of friends.

The fishing port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire with its superb coastline and the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

A fab property with lots of character in an amazing location. Very clean and tidy and it felt very homely and had everything you needed. We will return and would 100% recommend.
Mrs Ellin
February 2016
We found 6 Abbey Terrace to be very spacious and clean and the size of the house was amazing. The property is very well placed for the town centre too.
Mr Woodward
July 2016
The house was perfect for a large family gathering with 15 people aged between 1 year and 70. The decor was tasteful and facilities amazing. We particularly appreciated the large dining room where we could eat together, and the two dishwashers. The position in the town was perfect for everything we wanted to do. Everyone was delighted with their bedrooms.
Ms Kemp

The standard of accommodation and the location of the property was excellent. There was plenty of space and fittings to more than cater for our party of 18. The housekeeper was very helpful and pleasant and the house was very clean and ready for our arrival. We booked the house for a family gathering to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday and the large square table in the dining room and the kitchen fittings were perfect for cooking for 18 people. Everyone had a fantastic time and we would certainly recommend this property to anyone who wants a large property.
Mr Davies

An excellent property in a great location.
Mrs Robinson

We had a fabulous time here. The house was big enough to accommodate our party of 14 without feeling crowded. I particularly loved the large dining table, where we could get together for meals and were all able to see and chat to each other. The kitchen is superbly stocked for catering for large groups and the entire house was clean and comfortable. It helped make my 60th birthday a special week-long celebration with all the family and one I will always remember. Thanks to the owners and housekeepers.

A fantastic house for a really big group to come to: we had some fantastic meals with 15-17 people around the amazing dining room table. The lounges were great for socialising, too, and the breakfast bar in the kitchen a great place to congregate. It was lovely sitting outside looking down at the Abbey too - would be even nicer in the summer! Easy walk to the beach, the sea front, the old town, lovely view of the abbey. A great place to get everyone you love together.
Mrs Hopcroft

We had a wonderful time. The place was ideal for our large family gathering and we just loved the house, area - everything. Really fantastic.
Mrs Fryers
October 2014
The house is beautiful and in a very good location. It is warm, extremely clean and very well equipped. We were a family party of 18, age ranges from 9 to 75, and the house met all our needs and requirements. The large dining room was a wonderful venue to all sit and eat together. I would happily recommend this property to friends and colleagues. We had a wonderful stay.
Mr Brierley
March 2014
We liked the massive dining table in the house. There were 16 of us in the party and it was great to sit round and dine together. Whitby is a fabulous place.
Mr Wallis
September 2014
6 Abbey Terrace was perfect for a large family group with space for everyone and plenty of rooms to encompass all the differing needs of the group. Perfectly situated for access to all parts of the town.
Miss Codd

What an absolutely perfect property. The house is superbly located, a short walk into the town. Each room decorated to a high standard and there was nothing to find fault with. A perfect base for our family and friends holiday. An unforgettable week
Mrs Wilders

Plenty space, yet a homely feel to the house. Plenty of bathrooms and living areas. Whitby itself is wonderful, and the house location is great.
Mrs Richardson
October 2013
The size of the rooms were particularly good, even though we had 18 staying in the house there was still plenty of room for everyone. There was nothing we disliked.
Miss Cummins
April 2013
The house was perfectly located for all the main attractions of Whitby. It was large, spacious and very well maintained, and felt like home as soon as we walked in. It had all the facilities we needed and we had a very comfortable stay.
Miss Plenty

The property was beautiful, each and every room was nicely decorated. All my party loved it! The location couldn't have been better. Thank you!
Mrs Bell

Fantastic place to stay, we had a lovely time. It is difficult to find such a beautiful house which sleeps so many, we can't wait to arrange another visit.
Mrs Olden
September 2012
The location of the house was very good and the house itself was very comfortable and homely. We enjoyed Whitby and the surrounding area very much and wished we were staying longer.
Mrs Attley

If there was an option higher than excellent that would be the box I would be ticking. The property had no faults whatsoever and served its purpose superbly, an asset to the owners!
Mrs Bird

Location was good, lovely property, everything we wanted.
Mrs Delaney

The house was very spacious and comfortable and a bonus being in close proximity to the beach and the town. Also not too far from surrounding places of interest.
Mrs Aldridge
July 2012
The property was beautiful and very close to the town and the sea.
Mr Fishwick
June 2012
The house was excellent and had everything. We cooked several meals for 12 or more and the kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms were well decorated and in good condition. This house has been well cared for. It's in a good location with some valuable and scarce parking for the occupants. We arrived earlier than expected and were made very welcome by the owner and her team. A great house for a big group to stay in. We will return and would definitely recommend it. First class.
Mrs Walker
March 2012
We had a fantastic time! The property was truly wonderful, a credit to the owners. We will definitely be booking it again. Whitby is a beautiful place to visit, with lots to do and explore.
Ms King
February 2012
A well stocked and comfortable house. We liked having things like the hostess trolley, large fridge and double oven which were a great help when cooking for 18 people. Great location, conveniently close to Whitby centre and a great bakery around the corner.
Mr Norris
September 2011
A lovely house, well situated for all parts of Whitby.
Mrs Smith
December 2011
The accommodation was excellent - clean, tidy and well presented with space for all of us, including 7 children under 5! The two sitting rooms were ideal for keeping the toys controlled and it was nice to be close to the town and the beach.
Mrs Grantham
January 2012
The house was fantastic - great sized rooms, comfy beds and sofas, lovely decor, fab location just a few minutes walk into the centre of Whitby. Would recommend without hesitation!
Mrs Hirst
September 2011
Fantastic property for our family get together - there was enough room to have individual space if needed but cosy if you wanted to be together. It was great to always have hot water for showers and baths, making it so much easier with 13 girls. We are definitely looking to revisit, if we can manage to all together again soon!
Mr Wells
August 2011
The house was great and in a very good location for the beach and town. The rooms were all large and the kitchen was well equipped, the two dishwashers were a great feature.
Mr Pheloung
September 2011
The Abbey Terrace property is huge and well appointed - we had an amazing time there.
Mr Edwards
August 2011
Great location and great house. The space meant the family could enjoy the holiday without being in each others pockets. The house was also convenient to the activities, park and beach at Whitby.
Mrs Larkin
July 2011
The house was very well located in Whitby, near to the beach, a very good children's playground and the town. The house was well equipped and had a great kitchen with two dishwashers and a lovely cooker. There were nice little touches like children's crockery and cutlery, also comfy beds.
Mr Chadwick

Ms Cutler

Lots of space, close to everything. Parking for 3 cars and free in the street.
Mrs Hughes
May 2011
As there were 6 couples all paying equal amounts to rent the house it was very appropriate that we all could be allocated equivalent standard bedrooms i.e. each a wardrobe etc, all beautifully decorated as was the whole house. The position of the house is great and the ability for us to go out separately and have use of the key to re-enter was brilliant.
December 2016
Plenty of room for all the guests and ideal for walking into Whitby. Good facilities and well furnished.
Mr Wheatley
January 2011
Can't speak highly enough of this house. The furnishings, facilities and amount of space are all fantastic. It is well located - ideal for a large group wishing to explore Whitby and the surrounding area. Thoroughly recommended!
Mr Giles
February 2011
The accommodation cannot come more highly recommended. It was immaculately decorated and we had a fantastic weekend. We will definitely be back next year and Sykes were fantastic too. They called back when they said and always had a helpful friendly voice on the end of a phone. Very satisfied customer.
Mrs Suggit
February 2011
It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Beautifully furnished, well equipped kitchen and excellent bath/shower rooms. Loads of room. A warm and welcoming cottage which I would recommend to anyone. Ideal location.
Mr Commons

A very highly appointed cottage which all of our party enjoyed very much.
Ms Bower
April 2011
It is a fantastic house for a big family gathering. Really comfortable, well furnished and beautifully decorated. The location is great for exploring Whitby. No need to move the car as everything is in walking distance. We all absolutely loved it.
May 2016
I booked the house for my sister's hen do, and what an amazing place! All the girls were so impressed with the amount of space and quality of the house, perfect for our afternoon tea. The location is perfect too, short walk to the harbour. Some of the group are already planning return visits!
November 2015
This is one of the best houses we have rented for our "Annual Cousns Weekend". We have been doing this for the past 11 years. It was my turn this year to organise it, a huge job. The minute we walked in through the door everyone said how lovely it was and also how clean and fresh it smelt. The owners had left a welcome pack along with a card saying they hoped we all would enjoy our stay in Whitby. The house was just perfect, most of the bedrooms were very large, the smaller ones were still a very good size. Beds comfortable, sheets, covers etc very fresh. The kitchen was well equipped and there is plenty of room for the 15 people who were there. The dining room was well set out with plenty of chairs. The sitting rooms were comfortable and extremely relaxing to sit in. We needed help with the wifi and the owner was around in less than half an hour to fix it. A very nice, pleasant man. After arrived home I received an email thanking us all for the condition we had left the property in. We have never had this before even though we have always left any houses we have rented in the condition we found it in. I forwarded it to all the group and everyone was delighted to hear this. I would definitely recommend this property to people. The situation was perfect, the house was exactly how it looked on the website. You won't get a better property in Whitby.

Stayed the weekend with 16 other people on my friend,Kathy's hen do.We were all very impressed with the house,and never once felt crowded,due to ample space for everyone. The kitchen was very well equipped,and,apart from a dodgy tinopener,we couldn't fault it.The dining room proved to be a great place to meet up for games and plans for the day/night too. I shared a twin bedded room on the very top floor,and our bathroom was amazing,with a full sized shower,plus bath with shower attachment,large washbasin and toilet. Real leather settees in both lounges were comfy,and there was plenty of tables to rest our cuppa's on...;) Would love to stay here again,as not too far from all Whitby has to offer~Fabulous!

Booked this house for a family holiday to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday, both the house and the location were excellent. The house is so spacious that 18 people could stay and eat very comfortably. The house has a super large dining table which all 18 guests could sit round and the kitchen was very well equipped to cater for a large meal (even has two dishwashers). There is a very helpful and pleasant housekeeper, Annie, who made contact to check everything was in order and house was very clean and well furnished. The location was very good too, easy walk into the centre and a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting good quality accommodation for a large group.
May 2015
I stayed here to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family and friends. It was a perfect place to accommodate our group of 14 people for a week, with room for a further 4 to join us midweek. There was room for everyone to get together (the large dining table and two living rooms were particularly good for this) but without feeling we were ever on top of each other. The house itself is well-decorated, comfortable and very well equipped, even including children's plates etc. The location is excellent; just a few minutes walk into the town centre, the beach and the harbour. When we arrived the house was clean and tidy, and the housekeeper gave us a warm welcome. It was the perfect place to holiday with a large group and I would thoroughly recommend it..

This was our second visit to 6 Abbey Terrace having spent a long weekend with a group of friends several years ago. On this occasion the house hosted a gathering of our family and the accommodation didn't disappoint being at the very high standard that we had remembered. The house is very well equipped and decorated to a high standard. The kitchen table is vast and enabled the whole group to eat together and made for a great focal point. With 2 lounges you are able to find a quiet area in the house to pick up a book. Perfectly positioned for an easy walk to the harbour or the beach I would certainly recommend the house for a relaxing group holiday. Just be prepared for the exercise with the many flights of stairs to reach the top rooms :-)

We stayed at 6 Abbey Terrace to celebrate my 30th birthday, and had an absolutely fantastic time. It's a house which has been put together beautifully to allow a large party to settle in quickly and have a great holiday. The bedrooms are all lovely, and the split of twins and doubles really helpful to accommodate a variety of groups. The kitchen was great to allow better people than I to prepare lovely meals, and it was so amazing to have the massive dining room table, and look around it and see so many lovely people in one place! It's an easy walk into the middle of Whitby (although it's steep - but that's true of anywhere in Whitby), to the beach, to the (half a) Royal Crescent. So there are plenty of pubs, shops, fish and chips within easy reach. There's pretty much nothing you need to bring with you, as the house is wonderfully equipped (except maybe an extra CD player or two), you can just arrive, relax and settle in. There are two parking spaces, but the very friendly and relaxed landlords will arrange for very cheap extra permits if you need them. Overall, such a lovely stay and a lovely place to celebrate together.
January 2015
We rented this villa to have our first extended family Christmas and my 60th birthday celebration. The villa was perfect in every way, made even more perfect by being fully decorated for Christmas! Spotlessly clean and well cared for, we loved every minute and had to tear ourselves away. Whitby is a fantastic location and the villa is so near the town Centre.
August 2014
A fantastic place to stay for a large group. We ate in most nights, the dining table seats 16+ so better to eat there than try to find a place where we could all be together.

A large group of 14 of us stayed here over the last weekend of August. The property was perfect for our needs, spacious, cosy, clean and well situated. Nigel and Anna were very accommodating and have done the house up beautifully with lots of nice original features including lovely fireplaces and stripped floorboards. The location is also perfect, walking distance to everything in Whitby and great views of the Abbey and St.Mary's church over onto the East Cliff. Our group had a fantastic weekend and that was in no small part down to the property, We will definitely be back.
September 2014
Stayed weekend with group of friends. A tastefully decorated and well equipped house with lot's of space and well positioned for the Town and Harbour.
September 2012
we stayed for for the weekend, for my sisters wedding, and what a lovely time we had, there was lots of us, but we had the family room on the lower ground floor, the cot was in ready, there was 2 high chairs, every where was so clean, fresh and beautiful there wasnt a fault we had with this place.

Booked this house for a girlie weekend away from kids and husbands! This was our second visit to Abbey Terrace and we all agreed it was like coming home.... We had another wonderful weekend. The house is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, spacious, warm, clean - i could go on and on! The house is situated in a very handy spot for beach and town. Great view of the Abbey from the front door too. We can't recommend this house enough.
November 2011
What a wonderful house! We booked for an extended family gathering (ages 1-71) and spent a fantastic long weekend here in complete warmth and comfort. The house is spacious, light and airy and accommodated the 18 of us plus a baby easily. Huge, tastefully decorated bedrooms and delightfully comfortable beds are a pleasure to sleep in. Two large adjoining living rooms mean there's plenty of room for everyone and yet separate interests can be catered for; the children enjoyed screen games in one while we relaxed in the other. It's great to be able to all sit around one fabulous dining table for meals amidst such characterful features - fireplace, chandelier, shuttered bay window. The kitchen is magnificently equipped and very well planned. With 5 bathrooms placed throughout the house there is never an issue of shortage and a good mixture of baths and showers and never-ending hot water means that everyone is happy. The house is ideally situated for a short walk down into town or the beach and everything that beautiful Whitby has to offer. This property is a real gem. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
June 2011
I dont know where to start! Two families age ranges from 18-71 had a wonderful week in beautiful Abbey Terrace. The house is a dream, clean and beautifully furnished, the beds are like clouds, even the seaguls did not disturb our sleep! We intended to eat out BUT the kitchen was such a pleasure to be in we cooked each evening apart from one when we ordered in so that we could sit round the fabulous dining table :) The locaion is ideal, just around the corner is Bothams Bakery where we bought fresh bread and cakes daily...and ladies across from Bothams is a gorgeous shoe shop, what more can a girl ask for cupcakes and shoes!!! The harbour, town and beach are just minutes away on foot. Parking for two cars behind the house. Congratulations to the owners for providing such a stunning property and for keeping a lot of the victorian character in the house. I highly recommend this fantastic house to you. I hope you enjoy Abbey Terrace as much as we did.
March 2011
If you are looking for a place for a large gathering-this is the house. Superb kitchen, everything sipplied to cook any meal under the sun! Massive dining table-great for large parties, 2 louges which can be made almost into one huge room. Great showers, hot, strong, fast floimng & huge. Although there are no en-suites, having 18 people plus baby in this house didn't prove a problem with 5 bathrooms Very stylish decor, quality beds and furniture with loads of space for kids to run around. Even a shed to hold the beer, and the wet golf gear! The house is in a great location near the beach, pavillion, shops, pubs, chippies, resteraunts, parks and leisure centre. I would fully recommend 6 Abbey Terrace, Whitby for anyone looking to book a big house.
