Property Details

The Space
Downstairs at Birds Eye View is where you’ll find the living room, an open-plan kitchen and dining area, along with a family bathroom.

With a cosy feel, the living room is home to a Smart TV and offers fabulous views of the sea and both of Whitby’s piers.

Bright and spacious, the kitchen diner is fully equipped for self-catering staycations. It has everything you could need to prepare meals. Exit through the patio doors and you’ll find yourself in the south facing enclosed garden.

Just off from the kitchen is a utility room featuring a convenient sink, ideal after a fun-filled day on the sandy Whitby beach.

Here, there are also two rattan tables with parasols in the back garden which is an added bonus to ensure guests can kick back and relax throughout their stay on the Yorkshire coast.

The outdoor space on offer doesn't end here though, as at the front of Birds Eye View you’ll find a beautiful lawned garden.

Head upstairs to the first floor and you’ll find all five bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are home to king size beds, including the master bedroom which also boasts an ensuite. The other two bedrooms at Birds Eye View are twins making the property particularly family friendly. All bedrooms have comfortable mattresses and premium bed linens. With sea views at the front of the property, and views of the football and cricket grounds at the rear, a great outlook is guaranteed throughout the property.

The ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom features a shower, wash basin and WC for your convenience. You'll also find the main family bathroom on the first floor which is home to a large shower, basin and WC. There is also a separate WC on the first floor.

Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during bookings. For this reason, we require all of our guests to transfer a £250.00 Damage Deposit (subject to a £10.00 administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver for £25.00 which will cover you for up to £500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.

Set on the West side of Whitby, Birds Eye View is just a short walk into the centre of town. You’ll have quick access to Whitby’s blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Head to Pier Road and you’ll find cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants. You’ll also notice the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk.

Over the bridge, you’ll find yourself on the East bank which is full of narrow mediaeval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and even more fish restaurants. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks.

Getting Around
Whitby train station is just a short walk away so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby. Hop on the X4 and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The X93 travels along the coast to Scarborough. The 95 route features plenty of quaint villages, such as Grosmont and Lealholm.

Wonderful location and a fabulous house stocked with everything you might need. <br/>The owner called us when the house was ready and, as we were close by, took the time to show us round the house. <br/>We had a lovely stay



Absolutely loved the property! It was perfect for our Xmas get together with our family. The house was perfectly equipped, immaculately clean and very comfortable for all of our group of 9. We had a fantastic time and the dining and kitchen area were fantastic!<br/>Nothing at all to comment on!



It was 5 star home from home<br/>Location perfect , spotlessly clean , dog friendly.






Excellent location with just a few minutes walk down cliff path to large peaceful sandy beach, and tremendous sea views from lounge and several bedrooms. Also just a short walk in to Whitby. The house was very well equipped with all sorts of extras like picnic mats, maps, games, large umbrellas, and very comfortably furnished. Beds were really comfortable. Large patio with plenty of chairs and two large tables, also large table in the kitchen/dining area which our group of 8- 10 could comfortably sit round together. Easy to get to wonderful walks on the Yorkshire moors by car.



Perfect for a long weekend - thank you! Such a great house, great location, such attention to detail.

We loved Birds’ Eye View - roomy and beautifully decorated throughout,great location with sea views,nice enclosed garden safe for children and dogs and an owner who couldn’t be more helpful.Thoroughly recommended!



Great stay in a perfect location. Brilliant for a large family or group. Host was exceptional!



Our stay at Bird’s eye view in Whitby was all we hoped for. With 3 people over 60 and 2 under 6 it accommodated all our needs. AMAZING views of the Whitby coast. <br/>Spotlessly clean and well equipped, very comfortable for families. Nice spacious and well designed lounge and amazing family kitchen with easy access to the garden. No bath for the little ones but managed to get them to shower. <br/>Big porch and hallway for storing all the coats for 7 of us and 2 car parking spaces. Very close walking distance into the town. We will definitely stay there again!



Spent a very special weekend in this amazing house, as a family group of 9 adults and we never felt on top of each other at all. There are sufficient bathrooms to never need a queue to form on a morning and lots of different areas that folk can find a quiet spot should they want "me time." We had a wonderful weekend, the view of the sea from the front of the property was only rivalled by the gorgeous tranquility of the open plan kitchen/diner, a fantastic area for a large group to spend quality time together. The contemporary, tasteful decor and presentation of the house was beautiful, the beds and bedding heavenly and we found every possible item we could possibly need in the kitchen/utility room even down to milk in the fridge and ice in the freezer. Between us we had 5 cars, 3 of which were catered for on the premises, and Iain went out of his way to ensure we felt welcome parking the others at his own home nearby. Can't wait to plan another trip to stay again, thank you!



Ian and Heather were brilliant hosts, Ian got in touch before the stay to check that we had all the information we needed and to suggest places to visit and things to do. This personal touch made all the difference, and was greatly appreciated after all of the (slightly annoying) automated email messages from Host and Stay. Ian kindly posted back our son's charging lead which he left behind! <br/>The house was warm and really well appointed with everything we could need. The spec of all of the appliances was first rate. Would definitely recommend this to any large family wanting to explore Whitby and the coast in a first class house.

We are truly honored to be your first visitors. Had a fantastic time! The house is beautiful. Good luck for the future.

What a truly fantastic Christmas we had at Bird's Eye View. I was desperate to stay here from your very first post saying you'd bought the property because I know that it would be phenomenal - and it was! This has been the most relaxing relaxing and enjoyable Christmas yet and I'm totally not ready to go home. Thank you for the attention to detail and making everything effortless.

Myself, my husband, children and grandchildren, 10 of us in total plus our small dog Maisy have enjoyed a fabulous weeks stay at Birds Eye View. The location of this beautiful property is perfect. With gorgeous sea views yet only a short walk to the town centre. The property has off road parking for up to three cars and a lovely, secure south facing rear garden. The house is finished to an excellent standard, with everything you need for a perfect holiday. So typical, of any Vitty‘s holiday property. We all absolutely loved our stay at Birds Eye View and will return!!

Dave and Gaynor


Wow! our first stay at Bird's Eye View and what a fantastic week we've had. The house has been fully tested by 6 adults, 4 grandchildren and 1 pooch. We have all absolutely loved it. Another beautiful Vitty property.
