The cottage is located on the West side of the seaside town making it perfect for revelling in nostalgic seaside charm - head to the arcades or explore the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Venture over the swing bridge and you’ll reach the East bank. This 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.

Getting Around
Whitby train station is a two minute walk from the cottage 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 central to all attractions. Comfort of accommodation great .<br/><br/>clearer labelling of recycling bins and what goes where it was a bit of a mystery



The location was brilliant. Very picturesque so much to see and do in Whitby. Accommodation was situated in the most perfect spot a stones throw from the harbor & local attractions, although beds were to hard for us. Gift box on arrival was a lovely touch. <br/>We ate dinner at Trenchers and Cosa Nostra Italian. The service and food both outstanding.<br/>Lovely walks in the new and old town of Whitby. Absolutely loved it.



Great location and beautiful house with some very thoughtful touches for us and our dog! House well equipped and lovely design and very spacious. Parking a bonus. Great communication from owners and lots of instructions and helpful info in house. Thanks so much to the Vittys ?



A lovely cottage, in an amazing location! Looked just like the pictures, and had everything you needed and more. The hosts were great, always responsive and so kind. We had a wonderful 3 night stay, and will definitely return to Columbo Cottage!





The location and accessibility were excellent<br/><br/>not a thing



fabulous cottage. The attention to detail from the owners is brilliant, everything you may need is in the cottage. Very very clean and the provision of 2 car parking spaces is much needed in busy Whitby





Perfect location & parking. Beautiful cottage. Owners have got everything you need & more. Very generous Welcome box.<br/><br/>Nothing. Everything was perfect.



the cottage was very clean and provided everything needed for a weekend away from home<br/><br/>the only very slight feedback would be for there to be bigger beds! we are a tall couple and found the bed snug.<br/>but we loved everything about the cottage.



Beautiful, we’ll equipped cottage in a fantastic location. Will definitely be booking again.





so clean and welcoming beautiful inside thought of everything<br/><br/>was warm inside but that was it



Amazing house in a great location! Would recommend to anyone



excellent location, well presented and clean cottage with tasteful decor and well equipped. parking at the front of the property is superb<br/><br/>sadly the most crucial aspect of the stay is a good night sleep. In our opinion the mattresses and bedding were not of the same high standard as the rest of the property and as such our party having a very poor nights sleep. we would not stay again unless we heard that beds and bedding were upgraded



The house was spotlessly clean and fresh, modern and comfortable with everything we could possibly need for our stay. Excellent location being nice and quiet yet very easy to walk into town within minutes and 2 parking spaces directly outside was fantastic! Lovely little hamper from the hosts and radios left on to greet us when we arrived was so welcoming and great start to our holiday!<br/><br/>Only slight negative was the mattresses were very firm although all bedding and pillows were very good quality.



Exceptional decor and facilities.<br/><br/>Nothing



Very clean and well presented. All needs well catered for. Great location and private parking available outside the property.<br/><br/>Price was a little bit more than would have liked - but you pay for quality.





Superb location with parking !<br/>Gorgeous house everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. <br/>Lovely touch of welcome hamper.<br/><br/>Nothing!





Brilliant cottage. Excellent quality. Super location. Spotlessly clean. Lovely hamper. Great holiday all in. Thank you.



This place is fantastic, great location and everything was perfect. Would highly recommend.



Very comfortable and homely<br/><br/>None



The location could not be better an easy walk to all the attractions restaurants and shops.<br/><br/>Nothing





Fabulous cottage <br/>Perfect location <br/>Outside area <br/>Everything you need

Jacqui W


Very easy to drive to with parking for two cars rights outside the front of the property. Takeaways, bars, restaurants, shops and attractions very easy to walk to and a very short distance to reach them Lots of finishing touches such as blankets to use outside on chilly evening, picnic stuff and an amazing welcome basket. Everything is clean and new and the cottage is well equipped with everything from dishwasher to washing up liquid...you really don’t need to bring anything with you.The bedrooms are split over two floors with two en suite and one next to the main bathroom so everybody can have a bit of privacy when they need it.Would highly recommend

Home Truths

Columbo Cottage is set out across three floors so it may not be suitable for those less able or with mobility issues.

The cottage doesn't have a separate dining room. Although it does have a kitchen-dining area which is ideal for everyone being together when cooking and dining.
