Property Details

The Space
The cosy living area has two modern sofas and a flat screen Smart TV. After a busy day exploring Whitby, you can kick back on one of the sofas and keep up with your favourite shows on Freeview or streaming services.

Hope Cottage boasts a traditional, bright, shaker style kitchen which is fully equipped for self-catering staycations. Here you can make use of the oven, hob, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

Hope Cottage has two beautiful bedrooms. The master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed, decked out in plush bedding and premium bed linens to ensure you have a great night’s sleep.

The second bedroom has a single bed with an additional trundle bed which can be made up upon request. While not as large as the master bedroom, the room still offers a cosy nights’ sleep in lavish bedding.

The family bathroom has a walk-in corner shower, WC and wash basin for your convenience.

The entrance door into the property opens out onto the garden which is a real added bonus to Hope Cottage. Take a seat on the bench and enjoy the sun as you enjoy your morning coffee, or even a late tipple where you can watch the sky go dark and the clouds burn orange as evening turns to night.

Hope Cottage is located a short distance from the centre of Whitby so you’ll find restaurants, shops and pubs less than a 15-minute walk away.

The cottage is located on the West side of Whitby. You’ll be able to revel in the 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, mediaeval 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 short walk away from Hope 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.

We had a wonderful stay here! Brilliant property for a small family looking for a cosy place to stay all within walking distance of Whitby centre. <br/>We had a slight issue with the postcode not taking us directly to the property but soon found it once we had a quick look on maps. <br/>All in all I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to be able to walk into the centre (5 min walk) but far enough out so it’s peaceful as well.



Location, garden & parking<br/><br/>Can't guarantee parking space



Self-catering for this cottage. The kitchen was well appointed and we enjoyed preparing our own breakfasts.<br/><br/>It was hard to locate, thankfully some neighbors helped us out. Parking was difficult.



Very happy with the house which was immaculate. Struggled initially to use key box but managed it. Got the last parking spot on the street. Would stay again.





we have already phoned our dissatisfaction and won't be staying here again.



Loved our stay in Hope Cottage for 3 nights. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could need. Modern bathroom with lovely shower. Nice size bedrooms with comfortable beds. There is an enclosed garden at the front of the property so we were safe in the knowledge our cocker spaniel couldn’t get out.<br/>Perfectly located for walking into Whitby just a 10 min walk. As you walk into Whitby there is a big Co-op for any shopping and also the main bus and train station.<br/>We were very lucky with the parking and managed to park outside the cottage for the time we stayed there.<br/>A very enjoyable stay and we would definitely return ?



Cute little cottage close to the centre of Whitby. Very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished.<br/><br/>The bed was quite creaky and the curtains in the bedroom were not blockout and let a lot of light in which woke us very early and made it difficult to sleep in the morning.



We had a nice stay in this cottage located near the centre of Whitby. I’d say the house is a perfect size for a couple + pet. Although there’s a second bedroom it’s quite small and would be a bit cramped with a third adult. The bathroom especially was lovely.<br/>Everything is walking distance, the parking is on street but there’s plenty available nearby and we had no issues parking in front of the house each night. We used the house as a base to travel to surrounding areas like Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay.<br/>There’s a Co-Op 5 minutes away for food supplies and lots of restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend Magpie Cafe for fish and chips, and Humble Pie n’ Mash for some comfort food. <br/>Only negatives I can say about the cottage is the curtains weren’t black out and the sunlight woke us up early each morning. Some of the dishes and mugs were also dirty and I had to re-wash them before use. <br/>We’ll definitely be back to Whitby in future and would love to stay here again.



Whilst Hope Cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean I was disappointed by the size of the downstairs living area. Just big enough for 2x 2 seater sofas in front room and with anything more than 2 adults I would describe space as challenging.<br/>My biggest gripe is with the fact that cottage is hosted by an agency - and I really felt the difference with this in comparison to a real Air B&B.<br/>When I contacted 'Host & Stay' about issues with the property (for example, no signal on TV) it was clear that the agents that I spoke to (different people each time) had no personal knowledge of the house at all. I was asked by one agent to make a film of the TV and email over so they could suggest trouble shooting ideas. When I rang again there was no record on the system (apparently) of this conversation. Oven was impossible - I couldnt call again. No info about rubbish or recycling - would have been helpful. I simply would not choose to rent with Host & Stay again for all of the above!



Quirkey cottage with everything to hand enclosed garden for my dog roxy and in walking distance to everywhere<br/><br/>Parking had to park my car streets away



Lovely and comfortable plus relaxing<br/><br/>The added damage security deposit which wasn't clear on booking at the beginning



A lovely little cottage, very well placed with a short walk into town. Bed comfortable and everything we neededThe garden was a welcome addition with a dog!



Great stay here with my partner and dog which we booked mainly for close proximity to beach & town (probably a 15 minute walk from the house through the town). Walk to town is about 10 minutes which is very handy as we didn’t have to move the car at all during our stay. Managed to get a spot outside the house which we were lucky to get having read other reviews. <br/>All amenities in the house as listed and very clean/tidy. Good recommendations from host company also. <br/>Only slight hiccup was having to wait until 16:30 for the lock box code to get in after arriving at 15:55. Assumed code would be sent straight through at check-in time, but had to chase. <br/>Other than that, would recommend and stay again ?





Beautiful cottage within 5 min walk to town centre, seamless booking process and everything as described. Can't wait to return.



Lovely cosy cottage just right for two plus our lab. <br/>Looks nicer than the photos and such a good position, quiet area but easy walking into Whitby. Perfect spot for a long weekend with good walks.



Lovely Cottage in whitby in a terraced but very quiet street. Only 10 mins walk into the centre. Comfy, warm with everything that you need. Street parking but was able to park close each night. Easy check in with key code and easy access, excellent communications from host, recommended.



cottage was nice, very hard to find after a long snowy drive there, i think that clouded our view. I think the advert is misleading as it indicates that its central Whitby when its a good 10 minute walk from the centre. this could be OK but I'd booked it due to the central location as I was travelling with an older person whose mobility is poor. I think if the advert clearly stated (before you booked) that its a good 10 minutes walk from the centre this would have been better.



Very comfortable stay. <br/>Parking was not good.<br/>Very close to the Town centre.



Quaint little cottage. Great walkable location within easy access of all Whitby's attractions (of which there are many) including the train station, beach and Abbey. Access simple, cottage clean, bed very comfortable and shower fab!. Handy contained grassed/hedged little front garden which was perfect for our two small dogs and lovely to watch the birds of a morning. Lots of local businesses very dog friendly. Parking is on street which is limited but we found a spot with no issue and didn't use the car again until we left for home.<br/>Only negatives were the lack of washing machine (we walked a lot in the lovely countryside and would have appreciated being able to clean our muddy clothes) and the lack of recycling facilities (none! Hated putting cans and bottles in the rubbish)



Pleasant cottage for our weekend away!



Lovely location and a great place to stay



We had a lovely weekend with our toddler and four legged friend. The house was very warm and comfortable with everything you could need for a great stay. The location was perfect to walk into the centre of Whitby in around 10 minutes. Would definitely recommend!



Brilliant little cottage, a small walk to the centre of Whitby, perfectly kitted out for small children, would stay definitely stay again!



What a great little property! For using as a base it had everything you could possibly want. We stayed with our dogs and the huge benefit was the enclosed garden, absolutely perfect. Everywhere was clean and tidy and the bed was super comfy slept like a dream every night. We managed to get our car close ish on arrival but do be prepared for a bit of a walk as space is really short. 5 minute stroll downhill to the old town, a bit of a steep uphill coming back but think of that exercise. Would definitely stay here again, thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.



Really lovely little cottage - cosy and comfortable. The location was very pretty, easy to walk to town and the beach, but nice to be away from the hubbub. Everything was very clean.



Lovely cottage in a central location, great communication from the host



Lovely little cottage. Quiet location. Nice small front garden for the dogs.<br/><br/>The mattress in the main bedroom was a little too hard. The mattress in the small bedroom was lumpy.



Property excellent beautiful clean the location was perfect well done<br/><br/>I would not return due to the parking problems it was terrible narrow straight no where to park no vacant spaces really bad<br/>One suggestion is to turn the front garden into a parking space like lots of others have had to do xxxx



Lovely cottage with a great location. Very clean and tidy inside. Was a problem with 2 overflowing bins which was unsightly snd meant we didn’t want to sit in the garden. It was reported and hopefully sorted out before next booking.





Lovely cottage just a short walk from the town, was perfect for us and had everything we needed. Gorgeous bathroom, fab shower and comfy beds. Host&Stay we’re really helpful and always responded quickly. All the restaurant recommendations were fabulous we really appreciated the info as we hadn’t stayed in Whitby before. We had a great time! It took us a little while to find the place but that was only because we hadn’t read the instructions well enough to see that the house is on a different street to the actual address and using the postcode sat nav takes you down the wrong road!



Everything at Hope Cottage was perfect. We had a fabulous stay and would reccommend it to friends and family. It was a home from home and everything had been thought about. Great location too! The only thing that we hadn't anticipated was the slightly tricky parking out on the road. It's narrow and windy but we tucked oursleves into a space nearby so it was fine. Thanks Host & Stay we love Hope Cottage, Whitby!



The cottage is lovely with everything what you need. We had a great stay!





Lovely cosy clean cottage with all facilities and comfy beds, Wi-Fi, enclosed garden for dogs (essential) walking distance to Whitby centre, easy access and exit arrangements. On street parking can be difficult as is limited and tight to manoeuvre into as very narrow streets. Only downside to mention is £250 damage deposit required 14 days before stay commences and not released till up to 10 days after stay. A short stay doubles the price initially and is a lucrative way to earn interest for companies. <br/>Not had to pay this with most Airbnb’s stayed in.



Lovely little cottage, everything you could want, easy walking distance to the town and all shops



2 Hope Terrace is lovely end terrace property with everything you need as a base to explore Whitby and beyond. It is a 5 min walk into Whitbt itself and you are right by the historic NYM steam railway when you get into town.<br/>Also of you have a young family with you, then 2 mins walk in the other direction is a fantastic play area.<br/>Host was a great communicator and provided great instructions and details about the area.<br/>Property was spotless when we got there.<br/>We would definitely stay there again when we come back.



Great comfortable Cottage. Quiet location. Short walk to the town. Excellent amenities, well stocked kitchen with all the appliances and equipment needed. Clean and spotless. Everywhere freshly decorated. Very comfortable bed, lovely spacious bathroom. Very responsive host. Would recommend.



Property was on a quiet road within an easy walk to town centre<br/><br/>The stairs definitely need bannisters both sides especially for us oldies.



This was a gorgeous cottage with a very comfortable bed! Everything we needed was there. Great location and perfect for our dogs. Very responsive host.



Great location, nice tidy cottage with everything, what you need for a little break. Highly recommend. Thank you



Great location on a quiet street. Short walk into Whitby.<br/><br/>All good.
