When entering the cottage, you’ll be welcomed into the living room. Cosy and stylish, this space is perfect for relaxing during your stay. Featuring a comfortable, velvet sofa and a large flat screen TV, you can retreat here after a fun-filled day exploring Whitby.

Following on from this space is the kitchen. Sleek and sophisticated in design, the kitchen features high shine cabinets and star print tiles. Fully equipped with modern amenities and appliances, you’ll have everything you could need for your self-catering stay. You can prepare home cooked meals by making use of the oven, microwave, kettle, fridge freezer and toaster.

Also sharing this space is a breakfast bar with two black stools where you can enjoy meals and a drink during your stay.

Head upstairs to the first floor and you’ll find the master bedroom and bathroom. Tranquil and cosy, the master bedroom boasts crisp white walls and abstract wall art. There is also a beautiful, original fireplace which brings a traditional twist to the otherwise contemporary space.

The main bathroom in Clinker Cottage is accessed via the master bedroom. Clean and modern, it includes a walk-in shower, WC and basin.

Take the winding staircase from the master bedroom up to the second floor and you’ll reach the loft bedroom. This space features sloped ceilings, original beams and single twin beds.

Set on the West side of Whitby, Clinker Cottage is just a short walk from the central Flowergate. Find cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants on Pier Road. Venture along the lively road and you’ll reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts. At the other end of Pier Road, you’ll find the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk.

On the opposite side of the bridge is the East bank. The side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and 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.

The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from Clinker Cottage.

Whitby train station is less than half a mile away on foot 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.

Location was good. Also quieter than expected.<br/><br/>The bed was broken and I had to fix it. There is no way that 4 people can for in here as it only has a 2 seater chair. The 2 beds on the top level are squeezed in the tight you have to sleep the opposite way round to avoid banging your head on the roof beams. The room and kitchen are a lot smaller than they look in the pictures.The bathroom is very narrow and the radiator seemed to get extremely hot and was hard to control the temp. This would be very dangerous when young children use the bathroom. It was also hard to use the sink due to the glass shelf right above it.






The property was clean and tidy in a really good location for quick access to the amenities in Whitby. On arrival however there was no sign of parking tickets needed for the long weekend, this was corrected within 2 hrs of arrival following a phone call to Home & Stay, as we had to park a distance from the property. The property was considerably smaller than we were led to believe in the website. The stairs up to the twin bedroom were a challenge for the taller members of my family! All this aside we had a pleasant stay at Clinker Cottage



Great communication from the host and lots of helpful information about the house and things to do in the area.<br/>Great location, very central and easy to get around Whitby. <br/>Nicely furnished, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. <br/>Unfortunately the property has an overwhelming damp smell which spoiled our stay and the cleanliness of the property was not to a great standard. Although the bedding and towel’s were clean.



Great central location<br/>Had all that was needed<br/>Suitable for 2 or a small family<br/>Busy with parking spaces over the summer holidays but still managed to park.<br/>Had a lovely weekend break.

Porch light didn't work. <br/>The cottage is rather on the small side in comparison to other houses in Whitby and would suit petite sized guests ideally with seating for only two people on the sofa and a third on a pouffe in the lounge, which also was lacking a dining table & chairs. Very small breakfast bar with two stools in the kitchen. No hand soap or body wash. Kitchen is small but workable with tea & coffee.Extra tea towels would be useful. Upstairs the first floor is a very small double bedroom with an equally small closet which contained two hair dryers, a clothes rail and several broken hangers. The walkways between the bed and the surrounding walls was less than 18ins wide. Making movement cumbersome especially at night. En suite is a shower room with hold & rainwater showers, toilet, and a tiny HAND basin. For face washing & teeth cleaning <br/>This was extremely frustrating. Accessible through the main bedroom. Narrow steep stairs to attic. Descend backwards due to low beam



Pros<br/>- The location is fantastic. A few minutes walk from most of the shops and restaurants near the water and an easy walk to Whitby Abbey. Plenty of shops and cafes literally yards from the front door. <br/>- Very clean and tidy and the appliances are new.<br/>- WiFi works great in case you have a lazy, rainy day in during your stay. <br/>Cons<br/>- The space is very tiny. It’s tight for a couple or small family, but likely too small for anything larger than that.<br/>- Parking is misleading. Technically there is free parking available with the scratch offs provided by the host. But there is little chance of securing one of these spots as they are very limited and there are many visitors to the area. Ended up paying £8 per day to park in a lot down the street.



Very helpful Hosts , very clear information given , which if I had read correctly I would have noted the free parking available , but didn’t so ended up paying to park in the nearby car park -totally my fault. <br/>Good location , tasteful decor , but definitely a venue for 2 people , bathroom and twin beds in attic room far too small for 4 adults to share. <br/>Lovely blue sofa , but again could only accommodate 2 people . <br/>Great location for exploring Whitby and the surrounding area . We didn’t use the car once , walked every where and caught the bus . <br/>Lovely restaurants near by .





Very central location near all<br/>of Whitby’s attractions. Clean and decorated to an excellent high, modern spec



It's nice place to stay in the centre of Whitby. Luckily we good weather during our stay. We had a good time there.



Lovely accommodation. The stairs up to the top floor were steep so not suitable for a family with young children as we were and the bathroom was a bit tight to manoeuvre around however no fault of the property, just not the most suited for us! Communication was excellent and location great. <br/>For ease would recommend parking at the pay and display on silver street as no free spaces anywhere!





Nice place, location excellent, enjoyed our stay. Possibly more suited just for 2 people



Location quite good<br/><br/>Lack of sitting facilities in living room. One two seater settee between four people hardly adequate. Due to this we did not spend any leisure time in the facility. <br/> Description of facility did not fully explain the bedrom facilities. Stairs leading to bedrooms were dangerous for older people to access. Two guests were aged 75years and found the stairs hard to negotiate. This should be noted in the propoerty description. <br/>Photographs, especially of the living room bore no relationship to the facilities provided.



it’s location and being dog friendly<br/><br/>it was damp. There were a few moisture traps in the kitchen and the cupboards. The coat hangers were broken except one.
