Property Details

The Space
Emmy’s Escape has a stylish living area. The room boasts a flat screen TV and a comfy corner sofa making it the perfect place to unwind. Also sharing this space is the dining area where you can enjoy meals with your loved ones.

Fully equipped, the kitchen has everything you could need for your self-catering break.

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

Emmy’s Escape is located on Anchorage Way, just a short distance from the centre of Whitby, whilst the Cinder Track is close by where you can embark on a scenic walk to Hawsker, Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar. You will find the flurry of shops, restaurants and bars in Whitby town centre.

The Blue Flag West Cliff beach and promenade is just a 25-minute walk from the apartment. The famous Trenchers in the town centre is where you can try traditional Whitby fish and chips! On Pier Road, you’ll find nostalgic arcades which are fun for all ages.

The opposite side of Whitby is full of narrow, mediaeval streets dotted with boutiques and pubs. Sample the catch of the day in one of the fish restaurants or visit one of the traditional sweet shops for all your candy needs.

Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary and 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
Anchorage Way is located close to the centre of Whitby so the town can easily be explored on foot.

Whitby train station is just a short 20-minute 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.

Lovely apartment had everything we needed. Peaceful location. Comfortable beds and was very happy to have a bath in the bathroom as well as the shower.<br/><br/>Microwave a bit rusty.





It was a self catering apartment in a quite area, the apartment was big enough for the 3 of us and had everything you needed in there, it was about 20 minutes walk to town







main bed a bit uncomfortable, springs a few people have commented on this, <br/>, <br/>could benefit from a mattress topper



Nice quiet location, not too far from centre.<br/><br/>The bed was not comfortable, springs sticking in.<br/>No washing tablets for washer.<br/>Kitchen utensils were mucky.





Lovely apartment, good value for money, very clean<br/><br/>I rented the apartment for staff that work for me and the mentioned the WiFi was not working. This needs to be addressed, if not already done so.



It was easy to find, lovely and clean. Everything as promised. Free WiFi, parking easily available. Towels, dishwasher, cutlery you name it.<br/><br/>Phone signal and Internet signal not the best. One of the beds not that comfy.



A spacious modern flat located in a quiet residential area, one mile from Whitby's waterfront. Well equipped kitchen. Private car parking space.<br/><br/>The number of emails from Host&Stay is well over the top. This should be simplified. There is no information in the Booking.com listing that in order to pay the deposit it is necessary to set up an account with Host&Stay and pay a non-refundable fee of £10 for processing the deposit. This makes the booking process quite lengthy and not suitable for last minute bookings. <br/> <br/>When we connected to wifi in the apartment we received a message that there was no internet. My husband did not have network coverage in the property. Therefore lack of internet was quite inconvenient. I contacted Host&Stay through an email and was provided with some trouble-shooting steps, which did not work. I was also advised to contact the property management. However, there was no information in the apartment how to contact them. I would suggest providing some written, laminated information in the property on who to contact in case of faults, where the recycling bins are and what the house rules are, eg. about cleaning the microwave after use. <br/> <br/>Although the flat was generally clean, there were some major misses. The microwave was extremely rusty and there was a pool of rusty water underneath the glass tray. There was some black mould around the attachment of the shower screen to the bath. Black mould can cause breathing problems in some people and should be taken more seriously. It can be easily remedied with the use of a bit of bleach. <br/> <br/>We found the information in the property listing about the Streaming service (like Netflix) rather misleading. What it actually means, is that there are application on the TV set for Netflix, Youtube, etc., which guests can use if they log into their own accounts.







Great apartment in a really good location. Close to cycle trail & only a short walk into town. A bonus to have parking outside.



Was clean and tidy, nice quiet location bit further out than we thought, but wasn't a problem. Came with everything you could need<br/><br/>There was nothing we didn't like



Beautiful place to stay. Lots of extras. Tea coffee sugar milk dish cloth ect. Exceptionally clean<br/><br/>Nothing



The property was clean, contemporary and comfortable. I liked that Host and Stay kept in touch by email, everything was easy to follow.



Nicely decorated, comfy and warm.



Really comfortable home from home feel, parking space a great perk, great for families, properly kitted out kitchen, dining table, comfy beds.<br/><br/>Location a little far out for walking with young ones so needed to use the car but the bonus was the parking space that comes with the property.





N/A as self catering<br/><br/>Towel rail in bathroom



Brand new apartment in a very quiet location a few minutes drive from Whitby central.<br/> parking right outside. ground floor. <br/>Would be even better if there was a proper handle on the inside of the apartment door, some net curtain for bedrooms, and hooks and rails to hang towels in bathroom.





It was very clean<br/><br/>The main issue was it was too far out of centre the beds weren't very comfortable you could feel the springs








Spacious property as advertised with reasonable levels of equipment in the kitchen. Provision of a washer/dryer was welcome. Plenty of clothes hangers despite the photos on the website showing just only about 3 in each bedroom.<br/><br/>There was no towel rail in the bathroom so had to drape them over the radiator. We think this is why there is some rust on the bottom of the radiator. Appreciate we could have used the washer/dryer but that seems a bit wasteful just to dry some towels. Would have been good to have had a clothes horse as an alternative. As the apartment is on the ground floor the living room looks out on the green in front of the apartment block and there is a foot path directly in front of the window so there is a lack of privacy. You can drop the roller blind but this obviously leaves the living room a bit dark during the day.



lovely property, very modern



The flat is gorgeous, comfy, cosy, well equipped and warm. Location is great, a brisk walk to town if you can brave the hills!<br/><br/>Only thing we'd say is the bed wasn't very comfortable... That's literally it. Really worth addressing as we'd definitely return if they were. <br/>Tip: hooks on back of bathroom door for dressing gowns? ?





Very modern & clean. And felt very homely.<br/><br/>nothing



clean and in a great location. Also designated parking bay was a massive advantage.<br/><br/>could do with more lighting outside.



Very clean and spacious



The apartment was perfect and so quiet. Everything was clean and the little touches laid on for the arrival such as coffee and milk was much appreciated. Parking was a bonus and the Wi-Fi was excellent.





Unfortunately, the booking was via Host and Stay, who get only 1* (given that 0* is not an option). <br/>After booking the stay, and paying, they then demanded an extra £25 for breakage cover: Wouldn’t have minded if that was specified up front. Also I received 19 emails from them about the 2 day stay!



Great location, only 15 Min walk to river/town.<br/><br/>Really clean and fresh, great size. <br/><br/>Parking.<br/><br/>No Hoover, though looked like it had been removed.<br/>No hooks in bathroom to hang up towels. <br/><br/>Great location for us but it is down a very steep hill onto town so not great for mobility issues as getting back is quite a work out. Not the flat's fault, just a word.of warning.



Great venue. Beautiful apartment with everything available that anyone could want.<br/><br/>Pre-visit I received 7 emails telling me to complete the compliance details which I did after the first request. Clearer details for where the parking place is would be helpful please.



I liked location apartment was well equipped with everything was like home from home ? maybe put some hooks in bathroom to hang towels on<br/><br/>N/A



Wonderful apartment which has everything you need for a short or long stay.<br/>Great communication from the host



Lovely clean modern property, ideal location if you like walking ???? as near to the cinder track<br/><br/>nothing to dislike really, but we all commented that the quality of the mattresses could be better, but that’s an individual opinion



Property lovely and clean and modern, everything there that we needed.



Spacious, quiet location and fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine. Easy check in process.<br/><br/>Although it was generally tidy it could do with a proper clean. I had to clean the mould off the bottom of the shower screen, marks all over some walls, etc. It's a shame as it's obviously the people who stay here that have not looked after it. I had to report these findings on arrival as I have to admit I was concerned due to the sheer number of emails from Host and Stay asking about taking out insurance via Superhog for the stay, which came at a cost. I chose not to pay this as it should be included when paying £305 for 2 nights! <br/><br/>The mattress in the main bedroom is very uncomfortable and you can feel the springs when lying on it. Could do with a mattress topper at least. <br/><br/>Also to note I have corrected the map marker via Google maps as it's located off Anchorage Way, not on the street itself. <br/><br/>Otherwise we had a great stay. The above aren't criticisms, just things that can be improved.





it was spacious with parking outside<br/><br/>long uphill walk back to the property from Whitby. Pillows too thick. Table lamp columns and switches seemed to get too hot. No sponge provided for washing up.



Location was a 20 minute walk from Whitby Harbour. Was really clean and comfortable. Would defo stop again!<br/><br/>Was a little difficult to find but we managed. Not really a negative as its tucked out of the way



No hook in bathroom to hang a dressing gown.



A great apartment with private parking. Lovely furnishings and finish. A well equipped kitchen. Ideal for families on the ground floor. Walking distance to Whitby approx 25mins.



Flat very close to Whitby- only a few minutes walk into town centre.<br/>Nice quiet area<br/>Flat clean and spacious <br/>Parking just outside flat at back of property <br/>Good communication with letting agent<br/><br/>Flat is obviously only ever used as a holiday home and never been lived in so little things missing eg there is no mirror above the bathroom sink, making it difficult to shave. There is a mirror on the bathroom wall but not near the sink - a little vanity mirror on the bathroom windowsill would suffice. There is no rail to hang your wet towels on or hooks on the back of doors. However these are only minor issues. Overall the flat was lovely and I would definitely like to stay here again



The apartment was beautiful and the location was brilliant. 10 minute stroll into town which was handy to get the baby to sleep so we could enjoy a nice drink in peace haha <br/>The hosts were amazing and kept us informed with everything we needed to know which made check in so easy!! <br/>The kitchen had everything you could need and more and then whole apartment was completely spotless.<br/><br/>A lamp in the living room would have been helpful and also hooks on the bathroom door for towels <br/>Very minor things though and didn’t affect our stay at all!



Lovely well appointed modern apartment within walking distance of Whitby and Ruswarp



Excellent spacious apartment & fantastic location
