The Shipwrights Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
A short walk along the river will take you from this charming property to the town's facilities. Situated at the end of a terrace, this cottage has been decorated and furnished to a high and modern standard throughout. It has enough sleeping accommodation for up to eight people, offering a contemporary base for large families or a group of friends. To the rear there is a garden in which you can enjoy a glass of wine during the summer. In winter, central heating and a plasma flame-effect fire keep the cold firmly at bay, making this an ideal base at any time of year.

Whitby is one of the most popular locations in North Yorkshire. Situated close to the River Esk it spans up the coast amongst some of the region's finest scenery. The town is rich with historical landmarks and the coastal waters give way to fossils which you can dig up on your own or buy from local vendors. The well-preserved architecture, such as Whitby Abbey, has appeared in some very famous movies and television series. Now lying in ruins, Whitney Abbey is a local landmark that towers almost two hundred steps above the historic St. Mary's Church. Local lore speculates that Dracula himself was laid to rest on the church grounds. In addition to the Abbey, the town itself has a large amount of shopping, fine dining, and theatres to keep you occupied during your tour of this lovely seaside resort.

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.

Gas central heating with gas fire in sitting room. Electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, 3 x TVs, Freeview, DVD, radio/CD player, WiFi.

The Shipwrights had everything we needed close by. There was good parking right outside the front door, a lovely lounge where we could all sit and relax, and a good kitchen with a table large enough for us all to sit and craft. A lovely house we loved visiting.

Lovely house with plenty of room for 8. Next to Whitby Harbour about 5 mins walk to the town. The house was lovely and clean, plenty of space for everyone (we took 4 adults and 4 children). A very comfortable stay. Parking for 2 cars on site. Nice dining kitchen which was well equipped. Bathrooms were very nice too. Would recommend to any large group, thank you.
Miss Atkinson

A very nice house which was well furnished and decorated. Had lots of space for our group of 7. In an excellent location, a nice 10 minute walk to/from Whitby town. I will definitely book this property again, it was great.
Mr Willars
March 2015
The Shipwrights is great for a group, we were a party of seven and it was superb for us. Very clean, cosy, well equipped and within easy walking distance of the town centre. The two parking spaces are a real bonus too. Overall, highly recommended.
Mrs Nicholson
February 2015
Property was very warm and comfortable. In a quiet area but only a 10 min walk into town. The landlord was extremely helpful and pleasant.

Property was spacious. Situated close to local amenities. A warm and clean property.
Mrs Molloy
May 2013
Perfect large family/mixed group accommodation, although the stairs were a bit of a strain on our elderly relatives (who struggle with stairs anyway). Accommodation had a lovely 'home from home' feel about it. Excellent location.
Mrs Krukowski-Roebuck

The Shipwrights was a great holiday home. Children's playground directly opposite, brand new Sainsburys just around the corner and home of the most fabulous fish chips...what more could you want?
Ms Cushin

The property felt really homely and was really well equipped.
Mrs Priest

Mr Atwill
July 2012
The location of The Shipwrights is great - nice and quiet, easy access arrangements, short walk to centre and attractions as well as the bonus of parking for two cars. We have stayed in a few places in Whitby and for the standard and the budget this is the best yet.
Mrs Butterworth
August 2012
This was our second visit which we thoroughly enjoyed. The location is perfect with 2 grandchildren aged 4 and 6. We will most certainly be returning as there is a small play area apposite the house where you can actually sit and watch the children from the living room window.
Mr Starbuck
September 2011
The property was exactly as advertised, very clean, comfortable and walking distance from the town centre. Whitby is an ideal place for an interesting break.
Mrs Smart
July 2011
Whitby was excellent as usual and the house was equally excellent and in an ideal position for walking around Whitby. That we had to come home is the only downfall.
Ms McLaren
August 2011
The cottage was spacious, comfortable and had a nice garden The two parking spaces was a real luxury in Whitby.
Ms Emmett
August 2011
This accommodation was safe for our little ones. They could be confined in the garden and the safety gates inside made our holiday more relaxing. We felt like we had our own private part of Whitby, away from the hussle and bussle!
Mrs Cheesmond
March 2011
A good location. Great accommodation, all the party were very pleased. We would book again and recommend it to any one.
Mrs Scott
April 2011
The position of the property was ideal for walking into the old and new part of town. The property was very clean - I usually wash all crockery before using when I rent a cottage but I did not do so in this case!
Mr Ruff
November 2009
Well what can I say, another excellent holiday at The Shipwrights. This is becoming a second home to me, ideal location. The accommodation is second to none and I have already recommended this property to friends and family. Thank you again for making our holiday perfect.
Mrs Tomkys

Excellent family accommodation in a quiet neighbourhood overlooking the River Eske. Beautifully planned and planted courtyard garden. Play area opposite ideal for small children. Excellent meal at 'The Red Chard' in Whitby.
Mr Middleton
June 2011
Ideal modern property - plenty of room, great games room, utility room is an added bonus, everything we needed was to hand. Great for parking and walking into centre which is about a 10 minute walk. Great kids playground opposite. Had a great stay and would definitely recommend to others especially those with families.
Mr Gomersall
June 2010
Ease of walking into Whitby centre. The house would accommodate 3 generations of family comfortably. Ease of parking two cars. Quiet residential area with a play area for young children.
Dr Finlay
July 2010
Clean and well maintained house which acted as a good base for activities. Easy walk into Whitby and the beach from the property - enough to do in and around Whitby to keep the family entertained for the week.

A very pleasant house in a great location. We had an excellent short break.
Mrs Golze

The house was very large, even for 8 of us. The large table in the kitchen was a real focus point for all the family to gather at different times. It was also situated in a lovely area within 10 mins walk to the main part of Whitby.
Mrs Morgan
June 2009
We enjoyed the property very much would have no hesitation on returning or recommending the property.
July 2009
Property was of a very high standard. Very child friendly. There was also a fenced playground just opposite the property. Lots of room for a large party. A short walk into the centre of Whitby.
Mrs Reeves

Small playground opposite house is very useful. Mister Chips is a great place to eat out.
Mr Bembridge
January 2009
This visit was made all the more special by the location and high standards of The Shipwrights. It is ideally situated close to Whitby Town, close enough to walk and see all the nearby attractions. A fantastic holiday.
Mrs Moody
March 2009
Great location, plenty of space, good parking.
Mr Ruff
June 2009
I have stayed at many holiday homes over the years and I think that the Shipwrights in Whitby is one of the best, its location is ideal for everything you want to do on your holiday. The Shipwrights really made our holiday, the owners of this property take time to make sure that everything is just right.
Mr Thompson
November 2007
The house was absolutely first class and in a great location near Whitby centre and the harbour.
Mr McCann
June 2009
The address was ideally situated for easy access to the hub of Whitby itself, with a walk of only 10/15 minutes in total to reach the beautiful shops/restaurants of the town itself. The Shipwrights , being a mere few years old was an ideal base as reflected in many of its former visitors comments in its visitors book and is one that i'd wholeheartedly recommend. Not wishing to sound like a raincoat train enthusiast, I recommend a steam driven train journey on the old line from Pickering to Grosmount...its superb!
Mr Dixon
February 2009
Great break and a fantastic house for large family or groups etc. I will use this property again, I was that pleased.
January 2009
The cottage was in a particularly good location and extremely well set out. A five minute walk to the centre of Whitby but far enough out to be a peaceful family location.
Mrs Anson
September 2008
The locality of the house and the high standard of property. The extra amenity of the playground opposite.
Mr Shepherd
August 2008
The Shipwrights house was in a lovely location just a short walk from Whitby. The house was presented to a very high standard and equipped with everything we needed to make our stay trouble free.
Mr Kind
April 2008
Shipwrights is a fantastic family holiday home.
Mrs Tonge
August 2008
The property was within close reach of the town so no need to use the car. The house was large enough to accomodate 8 of us comfortably. Very clean and well equipped.
Mrs Lodge
November 2007
The weather was good, the property was well equipped, very clean and had everything you could need.
Mrs Brennan
September 2007
...Within walking distance to the town centre/beach etc, yet in a peaceful, private development. A most attractive courtyard garden with BBQ facilities.
Mrs Golding
October 2007
Never been to that area before so was good to explore new territory. Loved Whitby and York.
February 2015
We have just stayed here for a girls get-together and it's fab! Lovely place to stay: clean, comfortable, plenty of space etc. Fantastic location, just a short walk into the centre of Whitby. Will definitely recommend and stay again!
Mrs Pinchin
June 2007
I was on holiday with my elderly mother and three sisters. The house was extremely convenient for us. We could leave my mother in the house whilst we walked into town. Whitby is an interesting little town, and has some interesting shops. It is a good base for exploring Yorkshire.
August 2014
The house is in an excellent position to the town and for car journey to Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay, lovely walk into town. Beds very comfortable house amenities very good. Car parking for two cars a bonus, our ages ranged from 69 - 8 years old and it suited us all extremely well. Having wi-fi was good also. Having left a sleep comfort teddy behind on leaving, Sykes and the property owner could not have been more helpful and resolved our problem within an hour - finding the teddy and with the promise to send it on..... happy holidaymakers.
John and Susan Badger
January 2012
This property is spacious, warm, comfortable and well equipped. All of Whitby's many shops, restaurants and other amenities are within comfortable walking distance. 2011 was our second visit and we intend to book again for 2012.
March 2015
Clean and modern throughout,spacious bedrooms/kitchen/living room. 10 minutes walk from Whitby centre, 5 minutes to the nearest pub and chip shop. Main living room and kitchen and bathroom on the first floor, one bedroom and toilet on the ground floor and 3 bedrooms - one with en suite on the top floor, parking for 2 cars. Nice little courtyard garden too. Stayed in a group of 8 friends - would definetly return!
September 2011
Lovely house, with plenty of space, apart from the living room, which wasn't that big, but we made a lot of use of the large kitchen so it wasn't a problem. Nice garden, and a small play park just a few steps away from the house, which is ideal for younger children. Great location - about 10 minutes walk to the centre of Whitby, and what a bonus to have two car parking spaces.
July 2010
An excellent week with good weather. Close proximity to Whitby centre. Would recommend it to anyone.
September 2010
This was a really nice, clean and well maintained property about 10 mins walk from the centre of Whitby. The house was great and the town and surroundings had enough to keep two kids occupied for a week. We are looking forward to returning to Whitby next year
The Clegg Family
September 2010
Excellent location, parked the car up and didn't need to get back in it until it was time to come home. Property perfectly matched our familys needs, although would suggest a larger bed, king size or super king in the main bedroom. The room is big enough to take one and would make more comfortable. Would definitely book again.
November 2010
Comfortable well equipped and large modern house. Owner's very helpful. Good location if you don't mind walking half a mile to Town and the position means you escape Whitby's traffic problems. Great space if you have children and teenagers with you.
August 2011
Lovely house in an ideal quiet location. Great parking for two cars no need to take them into town as its just a 10 minute walk away. House great loads of space and kids loved the games room on the lower floor. Plenty of rooms we had 3 adults and 2 kids and never even used one of the bedrooms. Kitchen area is great with a large table and plenty of seating in sitting room. Playground across from house is great too. Would recommend shopping at the local Lidl store. Would definitely recommend this property to others.
The Graham family
July 2013
Service excellent. House spacious, well equipped, lots of unexpected extras, everything needed to cater for a house full of all ages. Location perfect for us with play area opposite and parking for two cars. We like South side of Whitby, only 5 mins quick walk away, flat route better for pushchair. Downstairs separate area ideal for young couple, ensuite perfect for us who paid the bill. Everyone, from the 2 year old to the 67 year old loved the decor, tasteful, yet out of harms way, carefully positioned for safety yet with maximum impact. The spacious living room, kitchen and corridors enabled the youngsters to let off steam despite the typical Whitby weather
December 2009
A well situated 'cottage' in a modern development a short distance from the town centre. Sitting near the river the area is quiet and has no through traffic and is ideal for supervised children (river1)with a small playpark diectly in front of the cottage. The cottage itself is very well appointed and well decorated throughout. Even for the most exacting individuals this place is absolutly superb. Roomy with a games room to let even the oldest child hide away for some fun. Well equiped modern Kitchen and very clean and tidy when we arrived. Loved the showers. An easy walk from the busy town centre and the Abbey it is a great base for travelling around the local area. The car parking also means that you don't have to battle with the traffic in Whitby!! As it is on three levels it may not be suitable for guests who are a bit less mobile. This is a cottage I would recommend without hesitation and would be delighted to return to. The owners should be commended for the quality of the cottage.
Lynn & Paul.
December 2009
The property is clearly a fairly recent new build, and had all the ammenities that you could wish for. The home is split on numerous levels, advantageous if a large number of occupants are staying at any one time. The property is immaculate, spacious, welcoming and is the ideal base for a stay in Whitby itself with the centre being a lovely 10-15 minute walk along the side of the Marina. We have stayed in a number of Sykes properties now over the recent years and this one ticked all the boxes where we were concerned.
December 2009
This was an excellent house for a family. There were 8 of us but there was plenty of space and we were not on top of each other at all. I am reluctant to write too good a review or it might not be available when we want it again!
Mr Colin Dale
December 2009
This is a clean, well decorated house, within easy walking distance to Whitby town centre. It feels like a home and not just a bare holiday let. A lovely place to return to in the evening. We were lucky enough to meet one of the owners of the property, who was very pleasant and checked that everything was to our satisfaction. I can't think of anything bad to say about it. I can only recommend it.
