Cairns Cottage is situated in a wonderful position, high up, overlooking the harbour, just a few minutes walk into the centre of beautiful Whitby! The cottage has just been renovated and is subsequently finished to an exceptionally high standard, wth all the modern amenities you would expect including free wifi, dishwasher, washer. It is set out over four floors, three of which boasting absolutely stunning views over the harbour and marina. The cottage can accommodate up to 5 guests in a stunning King size and twin/triple bedrooms. We bought this cottage because we love the North Yorkshire Coast so much and found ourselves spending an increasing amount of time there, usually walking in the moors then finishing the day in Whitby for fish and chips by the sea!

We bought this cottage because we love the North Yorkshire Coast so much and found ourselves spending an increasing amount of time there, usually walking in the moors then finishing the day in Whitby for fish and chips by the sea! We love Whitby harbour and, so when this cottage came up for sale in 2013, we snapped it up. We hope our holidaymakers will get as much enjoyment from the area as we do. Access to the property is up a set of steps from Church Street (the road running alongside the Harbour) and the old town is just a 2-3 minute walk away. From here you can easily access the lovely beaches. Please note that it is not suitable for people with restricted mobility.More

About the neighbourhood
This traditional maritime town of Whitby, with its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach is a great place for a holiday or short break. Whitby is set among fine stretches of coast with spectacular cliffs, beaches and bays.
Getting around
We tend to get around on foot as everything is so accessible from our place - coastal walks, the town, bars, chip shops - it's all within minutes of the door!
