Property Info

General Info

A spacious cottage in historic Whitby, within easy walking distance of a sandy beach, shops, restaurants and thriving harbour. What a treat – this property boasts a hot tub and outside space! A fun and wonderfully relaxing way to unwind together at the end of a day’s sightseeing. The interior is smart and furnished to a high standard. With three bedrooms, there’s plenty of room here for a large family or couples’ getaway. Easily accessible by car, train or on foot and with on-street parking available outside the property, Linskill is a real gem of a place. It is also a house with literary heritage, having belonged to Whitby-born author Mary Linskill whose writing features depictions of Yorkshire’s stunning landscapes and scenery. The house opens to a welcoming reception hall, from which leads the sitting room with open fire and superb feature fireplace – so cosy in the cooler months, especially after a bracing coastal walk. Snuggle up, listen to some vinyl from the house collection and feel the stresses of everyday life slip away! There’s also a TV, DVD, CD and selection of books to help you unwind in the quieter moments. Step into the kitchen and you’ll be impressed by the large range cooker and dining area with doors that lead outside. This is a fantastic space for informal dining, chatting to the cook, or simply enjoying your favourite pre-dinner tipple – in summer, it’s so handy for the BBQ. A shower room with shower, basin and WC completes the ground floor. Make your way upstairs to discover three lovely bedrooms. Firstly, a large master bedroom with king size bed, TV, wardrobe and dressing table, plus an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, basin and WC. A second double bedroom with TV offers a comfortable brass bed with cheery soft furnishings. Finally, the twin room has two full size single beds and is decorated with tranquil accents of duck egg blue. The house bathroom is stylish, with a deep, free-standing bath – don’t forget to bring your favourite bubble bath and champagne for ultimate relaxation! There’s also much to enjoy outdoors. The pleasant courtyard garden features a wonderful hot tub and BBQ. This delightful Whitby cottage is within a short walking distance of Whitby town centre. On the way, call off at nearby Pannett Park – the kids will love the playground – for a leisurely stroll through well-maintained gardens and onto Whitby Museum and Art Gallery. Or, for something completely different, brave The Dracula Experience and learn how Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker’s gothic masterpiece. A day trip on a traditional steam locomotive from Whitby to Grosmont and on to Pickering takes you through the glorious North Yorkshire Moors – an unforgettable experience. These stunning landscapes are a walker’s paradise, especially in summer when the moors are clad in swathes of purple heather. Stay at Linskill cottage and, like its former owner Mary Linskill, you too are sure to fall in love with Whitby and its splendid environs. Read More

Family Holiday

We booked through Yorkshire Coastal Cottages, the holiday was held over from last year. No issues with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages at all. The property has three bedrooms, one King size en suite, one double and one twin, plus a downstairs shower rooms toilet. All rooms and bedding excellent quality. Large enough lounge for us (2 adults and two kids), could have done with a nest of tables as nowhere to stand drinks. A large kitchen diner with everything you could need. The washing machine was a washerdryer and the dryer wasn't very efficient. Outside was a hot tub which was fantastic, serviced while we were there, a gas BBQ, and a small bench. Absolutely nowhere outside other than that, personally I can't see the point of having a BBQ is you can't sit outside to enjoy it. As the dryer wasnt too efficient I think a clothes airer which could be placed outside would be useful. My only other point would be to stress that the property is a 15 minute walk downhill to the bridge over the river, no way could I walk back up that hill!! Anyone with mobility issues (or a bit older like us!) please be aware you will need to drive or use a taxi to get about and see what you want to see in Whitby.

Dirty, scruffy accommodation

Firstly, the property a 3 bedroom property, sleeping 6, not a 6 bed property. When we arrived we were disgusted by the levels of cleanliness, it took 2 of us an hour to clean it. Lots of the properties decorations are quite old & tired. The property could actually be quite nice as in general its pretty nice in a good location with just a better cleaner & a few coats of paint, a shame really
