Property Details

The Space
Freshwater View is a stylish apartment boasting an open plan kitchen, living and dining area, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Sleeping up to four guests, it is perfect for family staycations by the sea or coastal getaways with friends.

The open plan living space includes matching sofas and a flat screen TV so it’s ideal for unwinding with your loved ones during your stay. Whether you’re ordering in a takeaway or tucking into a home cooked meal, you can gather the family together and enjoy meals in the dining area which includes a round table and four chairs. Also sharing this space is the kitchen which is fully equipped with modern appliances and cookware.

Both bedrooms in the apartment have comfortable super king beds with crisp linens and plush bedding to ensure you have the best sleep possible. Pops of colour are added with the mustard and royal blue soft furnishings to give a really luxe finish. Both super king beds can be split into two singles if this would be more suitable for your stay.

Modern and clean, the family bathroom features a bath with an overhead shower, WC and basin.

Neighborhood
Freshwater View sits along the River Esk in the dock area.

Walk along Church Street and you’ll wind up at the East bank where you’ll find 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’.

Walk over the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk and you’ll find yourself at the West side of town. It’s here you can discover cosy pubs, fun arcades and even more fish restaurants! Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

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
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from Freshwater View.

Whitby train station is less than half a mile 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.

No breakfast in this stay<br/><br/>The heater in the bedroom overlooking the ESK did not work correctly, we bought a heater to warm the bedroom <br/>The black out blind in the same bedroom was not working fully it kept jamming

Well maintained and presented property, comfortable super king beds and nice bathroom. Shower was adequate.<br/>Kitchen compact but very useable, all the necessary equipment and dining table adjacent was handy and comfortable.<br/>Lounge was comfortable with lovely view across the river.<br/>Overall great location, easy parking in a reserved space.<br/>Quiet location with no noisy neighbours, easy 15 minute walk into town centre, loads of eateries of varying prices and standards, would recommend very highly.<br/>Only confusion came on checkout, e mail the night before said noon, whereas every other communication said 10am, called host and stay the managing agency and although I knew I was speaking to a call handler at Airbnb in USA she maintained she was working at host and stay in Uk. Airbnb don’t pretend please, be honest with your clients.

Super location with a parking space, easy to walk into town. Views of the estuary and boats, and even the trains. Apartment clean and modern with everything you need for a great break. Super comfy beds<br/><br/>The venitcan blind in the bedroom was damaged, and the shower wasn't a consistent temperature (bit annoying)

It was perfect apart from the confusion on the last days with departure time which had us rushing to leave when we thought we had plenty of time. Text arrived at 9.02 contradicting the departure time in the guidebook and email.

Easy from time of booking and great communication and instructions. On arrival we found the apartment to be spotless and everything we needed was supplied. The view out on the harbour was a wonderful extra. Quiet area and having a parking space made things a lot easier and cheaper during our stay. <br/>A folder giving a few tips about the local area was supplied and really helpful in choosing local restaurants and cafes. <br/>Overall a fantastic stay and wonderful accommodation we could not fault- Thank you!!

Fantastic stay, spotless apartment, within easy walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants.<br/>Fantastic views from the apartment.<br/>Would definitely recommend staying here.

Tony

27/04/2023

The apartment was really well appointed, very spacious and in excellent condition. <br/>The location was great and well situated for exploring Whitby and the surrounding area.<br/><br/>The 4pm check in time is a bit late coupled with the early check out time of 10pm. A 12pm check out time is stated in the property guide book. <br/>The heating in the living area could do with some instructions, I set it more by trial and error. <br/>The shower is a bit under powered.

Hobson

From the start of the booking process until we left I received about twenty emails from host and stay! Most of them repeating something I’d received by email previously. I found this irritating and slightly stressful. The property was lovely but the booking process did not work well for me.

Lovely place to stay for a few days at Easter. Really easy to walk into Whitby town centre where there was lots of restaurants & pubs & visiting nearby places like Runswick Bay & kettleness was easy. Overall had a great stay

Claire

Fantastic apartment in a great location within easy walking distance of Whitby town, shops, pubs, beach and sights. The apartment was easy to find and parking was directly outside. Once inside it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, exactly as described. We would definitely recommend.

Sam

05/04/2023

Spacious rooms, lovely river views, very well equipped (thumbs up), comfortable large beds and close to the town. Property seemed secure and check in/out was easy. Plenty of information was given about the property prior to our stay. The television had plenty of choice, wifi was good and all worked well. Property was a good temperature for us all.<br/><br/>The property was clean overall, but not as clean as I would expect, although I have high expectations. Ran out of hot water on the third night of our stay. I phoned the 'host and stay' number for some guidance and left a message. No response?? 3 days later and still nothing.. Had to boil the kettle a few times and wait for the boost function in order to have enough water, this goes against the guidance of 'hot water will be available twice per day'. Shame we didn't even get a call back the following day.

Annabel

A wonderful property situated within easy walking distance of the centre of Whitby. Just over 10 minutes walk alongside the estuary to reach the swing bridge. In the evening we would recommend stopping off at The Middle Earth Tavern for a drink - half way along your walk in!<br/>Apartment is tastefully furnished, very well equipped and spacious with the added benefit of a parking space.<br/>Owners were helpful in splitiing one of the King Size doubles into two singles - perfect to accommodate family of 4.<br/>Beautiful views along the estuary from the lounge and master bedroom windows. We even saw the steam train pass once each day.<br/>Restaurant recommendations- The Star Inn and Trenchers.

Amy

22/10/2022

The apartment was exactly as pictured! Parking and check in were both really easy. The location was lovely and just a short walk from Whitby’s centre as described around 10 minutes to the main bars and restaurants. The bed was extremely comfy! We would definitely recommend this apartment and stop here again ourselves.

Sophie

Very clean, nicely decorated, with everything you need imaginable. <br/><br/>Lovely views out the window, 2 year old loved watching the boats and train go by. <br/><br/>Spacious, cosy, home from home.<br/><br/>Was lovely to have a big bed, with plenty of pillows however the bed was very hard so I struggled to sleep and left with hip pain, i actually also had an allergy to something, possibly the wash powder the bedding and towels were washed in which is a first for me. So not sure i realise these things are personal to me but other than this it was perfect. <br/><br/>There was also a little noise from the apartment above with hearing people walk about which can be expected in an apartment so didnt bother us too much<br/><br/>Spacious, nicely decorated, everything you need, great location and views out the window.

Tracy

Lovely accommodation, the bedrooms are a great size with ample wardrobe space. Great living space too with a wonderfully stocked kitchen in terms of cutlery and plates etc - perfect for self catering especially with children. <br/>Only a 5-10 minute walk into Whitby and lovely views of the estuary and the steam train across which comes and goes and is lovely to watch/listen out for. <br/>Would highly recommend!

Freshwater View was immaculate and extremely well appointed with very good attention to detail. Well equipped kitchen with more than enough crockery and glasses. The bed and sofas were comfortable.The location very good - a pleasant walk to the centre of town. Parking was a bonus and the block was very quiet. Wonderful sunsets from the living room window.<br/><br/>I had no problems. Not a fan of multiple cushions on beds but hardly a problem.

Perfect! Beautifully decorated apartment with lovely views of the River Esk. We come to Whitby every year and this is one of the best places we have stayed at. Equipped with everything you need to cook in if you wanted too. Really comfortable beds and only about 15 minutes walk to the main shops and restaurants. Would recommend this to everyone!

Kelly

21/04/2022

What a beautiful apartment! We had everything we could possibly need, all of the extra touches didn’t go a miss and was truly appreciated. The location was stunning and a short walk into Whitby, we had a jam packed three days with so much to do in the area all within driving distance. If your looking for an amazing Italian restaurant we came across Moutreys restaurant in Whitby and what a treat that was!

Andy

Location to the town and quiet residential area. The standard of the accommodation was very high, clean and well thought out.<br/><br/>This whole SUPERHOG registration process was a complete and utter pain, it didn’t recognise the photo on either my driving licence or passport and the contract was borderline scary.. I’d go as far as to say I won’t book any other accommodation ever again if I have to resubmit all the nonsense with Superhog again, it clearly doesn’t work. If it wasn’t for Lilly doing manual registration for us at the 11th hour then I don’t know what we’d have done. As previously mentioned we can’t fault the accommodation but you’ve lost us as a future customer because of Superhog verification process, it’s just too hard and temperamental.

The block of flats is very noisy and the flat is on the ground floor, bedroom window overlooking the busy car park. You can hear other persons in the block of flat coming and leaving until quite late in the night as people may have been in the town having drinks, coming back late. I definitely would not recommend to a family or couples. Amenities are very basic, perhaps because it’s newly owned. There was stale food such as bread left in the cupboards so the cleanliness was less than ideal. The company that rents the property (Host and Stay) extremely unhelpful and debit the payments incorrectly from you account, still in query regarding charges now. There are plenty of lovely places to stay in Whitby, this perhaps is not one of them.

David

23/01/2022

Location was excellent (as we know Whitby, it was easy to work out where we were and make our way to the locations we were visiting. It's a very attractive location and the apartment was very pleasantly decorated.<br/><br/>I have only two criticisms - the extractor fan in the bathroom is very noisy and runs for 20 minutes after the light is switched off - very distracting when trying to get to sleep. The second is that the venetian blinds in the bedroom (although great decor and effective for privacy) do not block out external light. Blackout blinds would be very helpful for most people

Gorgeous apartment - less than a 10 minute walk from the Town with the added bonus of free private parking. Lovely and clean and decorated to a high standard. The bed is amazing and huge! (there were 2 bedrooms - we slept in the bigger bedroom)<br/>it was lovely and quiet - however we did hear the train passing around 6am ish which was mentioned in the description and so was fine and expected.<br/>Lots of storage and wardrobe space.<br/>Plenty of info provided on local attractions.<br/>Highly recommended and we would stay again :)

This is nicely presented apartment which is conveniently located just a short walk from the centre of Whitby. Check in was excellent, very smooth and easy. We had a couple of minor issues with a leaking tap and a dishwasher that stopped working but the host was very responsive and communication was excellent. The leaking tap was rectified very quickly but unfortunately the issue with the dishwasher could not be resolved before we checked out. Not a major issue as we simply hand washed the dishes.

Very nicely arranged , beds comfortable , level of finish was fab everything we needed was provided . Short walk to the front close enough to walk far enough away for quiet and calm .<br/><br/>The bedroom that looked onto the car park was lit up by the car park security light , although there was a blind it wasn’t a black out blind so made it difficult to get to sleep . <br/>The bathroom was beautiful and clean apart from the tooth brush holder which was grim and put us off using .
