The Space
The Birds Nest has a light and airy feel throughout. Crisp white walls, wooden flooring and premium furnishings create a bright and modern look. Open plan in style, the social space includes the kitchen, dining and living area.

With pale grey cabinets and white worktops, the kitchen has a beautiful look. Grey brick style tiles and white accessories work perfectly in the space. The built in sink has a routed groove draining board and a statement faucet to complete the luxury look. Fully equipped for self-catering staycations, the kitchen has an oven, hob, refrigerator, kettle, microwave and toaster. There is also a dishwasher and a coffee machine for your convenience. The dining area includes a marble style breakfast bar and grey wire stools.

Sharing this space is the cosy living area. With a teal coloured, velvet sofa and a flat screen Freeview TV, this is the perfect spot to relax during your stay. Snuggle up on the sofa and watch your favourite shows or open the patio doors and kick back with a good book. Beautifully accessorised, the space also includes a marble coffee table and an industrial style shelving unit.

The studio apartment also boasts a spacious bedroom. With sloped ceilings and huge windows, this room has plenty of character. You’ll enjoy your nights sleep in the comfortable King size bed as it is complete with premium bedding and crisp linens. Ideal for relaxing, you can sit at the arched window seat and watch the world go by. Straight ahead, you’ll also see views of the harbour and to the right you can spot Whitby Abbey in the distance.

The bathroom is off the open plan living space and includes a walk in shower, WC and basin. Modern and clean, the space features a skylight window and a vanity mirror with light up mood lighting.

Neighborhood
The Birds Nest is located on Spital Bridge, on the east side of Whitby. Stay here and you’ll be in the perfect spot to explore everything the seaside town has to offer. Just a short walk will bring you to the town centre where you’ll find narrow, medieval streets dotted with shops, pubs and cafes. Explore boutiques selling Whitby Jet jewellery or try the local catch of the day in one of the many restaurants.

Climb the famous 199 steps and you’ll arrive at 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’.

Head over the small bridge which crosses the River Esk and you’ll find yourself on the west side of Whitby. Venture along Pier Road and you’ll see arcades and shops, plus plenty more pubs and restaurants. Keep walking and you’ll reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff beach which is lined with beach huts. Take a stroll along the pier and watch the waves lap the shores below.

Getting Around
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from The Birds Nest.

Whitby train station is less than 15-minutes 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.

The place was lovely and located in the perfect spot. However, some basic essentials were missing from the property. We only had 1 bread knife to use for any food prep which wasn’t ideal, also no oven gloves so had to use the tea towel to get things out the oven. Also the hairdryer was broken and completely unusable. Apart from this everything was great!

Katie

Great location and easy to find. Parking space is a little bit tight however it's manageable. Check in was quick and easy. Cleaning in the Kitchen area, such as in the draws and cupboards could have been ever so slightly better as well as the Bathroom however it did not spoil our stay at all. We will absolutely stay at the Bird's Nest again. Thank you!

The quaint feel of the attic space apartment was perfect for us. It felt cosy and was perfect for a couple. The walk into Whitby was quick and easy, with many amenities on the doorstep. The guidebook helped with some suggestions of places to visit and we enjoyed two wonderful meals: Abbey Harbour and Moon and Sixpence, as well as delicious cocktails at Cafe Montmarte. All in all, a wonderful break, where we would be happy to stay again.<br/><br/>For some people, the sloped ceiling might be a problem but it was all part of the fun of an attic studio stay for us.

Great space to explore Whitby and fantastic bonus of a parking space albeit a tight squeeze we managed it in a small suv. Very clean and had everything we needed. Thank you very much.

Sally

Location was super<br/><br/>I agree with previous reviews that said the settee wasn’t very comfortable and that it would be useful to have somewhere to hang your coats

Helen

Despite regular contract prior to arrival. When we arrived the keys were not in the key box. We contacted the host, who initially told us to look for the spare in a separate box (nowhere to be found). When we eventually spoke to the host we were told the apartment had been double booked and had to arrange an alternative accommodation.<br/><br/>Never saw it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, perfect size for 2 people. Ideal location only 5 minute walk from town centre. <br/>Very clean, tidy and well kept<br/>Noticed other reviews regarding finding the location. It is not hard at all, and parking space is only tight if you drive a bus.

Michael

15/12/2023

Lovely quiet flat despite on a busy daytime route we heard nothing. Ideal walk into Whitby 10 mins. <br/>Parking, warm, clean, v comfy bed, light and airy modern decor. <br/>Yes a few scuffs on the entrance hallway and some dogs have obviously had a small nibble on the skirting boards but that’s bound to happen with some dogs <br/>This shouldn’t detract from the positive comments oh also great shower. A wine cooler! <br/>Thank you for the stay.

Location.. parking.. internet.. TV..<br/><br/>Boiler making an absolute racket all night.. we felt very unsure whether to stay or not.. didn't feel safe.. if we hadn't have had a drink we would have left that night and gone home..all cups were stained and dirty.. not been washed in a long time..

We have stayed at The Birds Nest apartment on several occasions and shall again . We always have a lovely comfortable ,quiet stay . Worm , modern and light.<br/><br/>Some small signs of wear to paintwork at skirting board near door on entering and water damage to the shower surround . Areas of lint in wardrobe and under bed

Good parking, nice and clean room all the facilities you needed and close to town<br/><br/>Signed could do to be a bit bigger got a little bit confusing. On arrival a lot of the properties next door to one another, have similar names and numbers. Just a little bit hard to see

Rob

A light modern apartment in a good location. Has parking, though quite a tight space.<br/><br/>The cleanliness wasn't best and on arrival in mid October needing heating, found the heating thermostat batteries flat. Host & Stay did however organise a re-clean and fresh batteries sorted the heating, so once this was in place we had a pleasant stay.

Alissa

12/10/2023

great location.<br/><br/>shower was good despite being a tiny shower room.<br/><br/>not obvious which was our parking space and when finally discovered it was a tiny space which you shoehorn yourself into. we phoned Host & stay and they were unhelpful. <br/><br/>the insurance payment ON TOP of the booking!! NEVER EVER had this with any booking! took 2 weeks to get my £250 back. upon arrival, saw dirty marks on the carpet, scuffs on the wall so felt I had to cover myself and video the place, evidencing it was not caused by us. really takes the edge off a trip but this is how this booking made us feel! <br/><br/>2 children in the property below clearly playing football 1st thing in the morning and waking us up! <br/><br/>cups were disgusting and heavily stained! frying pan looked like it had been put back in the draw after use likewise some of the cutlery. <br/><br/>no blackout blinds and really bright. <br/><br/>this could have been a great little stay without all<br/>of the above, the insurance being the biggest issue leading to the fact we will never return to this place. <br/><br/>I never like to leave a bad review and if the above issues were fixed, I would actually recommend, so I hope the feedback is taken is received to not have future guest feeling like we did on what should have been a much needed, quick, relaxing getaway.

Lucy

Clean and well maintained. Very comfortable<br/><br/>There was no loo roll at all when we arrived and there were a few things that we could have done with in the kitchen as well eg cooking oil, cheese grater etc.

Emily

20/09/2023

Lovely little flat, perfect for 2 people for a couple of days. Location was a bit difficult to find initially due to it sitting just after a blind corner (if coming from one direction) and not showing accurately on the car maps. Parking space is very tight!! <br/>Shower was lovely, powerful and clean. Two different head types to allow for showers without getting hair wet.<br/>No washing up items left so had to buy our own. 2 dishwasher tablets were left for us but there wasn't a dishwasher so these weren't usable. <br/>For note - the hairdryer is low power so if you have long/thick hair consider bringing your own. No full length mirror.<br/>Location was central, making it super easy to walk everywhere, and a lovely view of the fields on one side and the river Esk on the other.<br/>Would 100% stay again.

What a wonderful apartment and location. Absolutely perfect for a couple of days away to explore Whitby. Easy to access and just a short car journey to the lovely seaside Sandsend. We will be back

Ruth

18/08/2023

Close to the town, had a parking space, had everything we needed in the flat.<br/><br/>Bed was really uncomfortable, room was dusty, windows didn’t block any sound and two had no coverings so it was really bright from early in the morning. It looked nice from a distance. Whitby has boy racers that travel a circuit until approx 1am, blowing out their exhausts so we got little sleep.

Steven

Great stay. Within walking distance to everything we wanted. Nice flat which our dog also liked!

Amanda

08/08/2023

The location was good, with a great view. <br/>The bed was comfy.<br/>Access to smart TV with Netflix etc.<br/><br/>Not as advertised: there was no dishwasher as I had expected as I deliberately choose this property because of that. <br/>There is nowhere to hang our out door coats or wet clothes as the radiator hanger is quite small. <br/>This also means there is no where to hang your towel after a shower. ( which was lovely and fluffy!)<br/>The on site parking is great, but the space is very small.

We have used this property before and it’s great ,quiet, comfortable, very convenient position to get into Whitby .<br/><br/>There were some snagging issues, marks to paint work, damage to the skirting board which weren’t there on our last visit . Some of the kitchen wear was stained ,would have helped to have a pan scrubber as black coffee dose stain the white mugs .

Tina

It was in a perfect location very peaceful and had everything we needed..<br/><br/>The bed, although very comfortable was very tight in and was the sort the mattress sat in, I banged my legs so many times it was quite painful, some sort of buffer needed on the corners.

Amanda

05/05/2023

immaculately clean, well equipped and free parking. A great base for visiting Whitby.<br/><br/>Ceilings low by the bed. might consider changing the position of the bed. Two flights of stairs to the property - not ideal for people who struggle with steps.

It was modern, clean and had everything you could possibly need and was a better option than a hotel room. On-site parking was also a huge bonus as parking on the street appeared to be a bit of a lottery.<br/><br/>The only real negative was in regards to the bed and it’s position within the room. Due to the roof being at the top of the building the bedroom area has sloped ceilings which meant movement around the end of the bed was restricted and required the person on the right hand side to almost limbo through the gap. It wasn’t too much of a problem for the two nights we where there but we certainly couldn’t live with it if it was longer.

The bed was very comfortable. Nice and quiet. Good walking distance for Whitby. The shower was good.. Nice and warm with heating, we could adjus. Tv good<br/><br/>Sofa was uncomfortable if you sat for a while. Also, tall stools were not comfortable at all. No coat hooks for hanging coats. Parking space is very small. Luckily, no one was in the space next to us, or we wouldn't be able to get in or out. Also, having to pay a security deposit of £250 for just 2 days stay.. Then, you have to wait nearly 2 weeks before you are refunded. Never had this with other holiday companies .

Evans

30/03/2023

Beautiful property, easy to find and in a great location. Perfect for a short stay at the seaside.<br/><br/>Struggled to get the heating to work but managed without. Could have had a couple of dogs bowls due to it being dog friendly.

This was a beautiful apartment and I would absolutely love to stay again! I've even suggested this place to stay to a friend who is looking to stay in Whitby in the next few months. There were plenty of pots and pans for cooking, the shower room was small but it was still absolutely perfect and we absolutely love the open plan space!! We took our pooch with us and there was more than enough space for him and us! Personally, I'm rather picky with pillows, but for the first time in a long time i slept so well and was so comfy! 10/10 for location and the car parking spot was a bonus too! I would recommend to anyone!<br/><br/>There is nothing not to like about this beautiful place! The only one small thing which I would have loved to see was maybe some hooks to hang coats? Due to the time of year we had long winter coats with us which we struggled to hang in the wardrobe. So maybe just one small suggestion to maybe place some hooks in the porch area.

Amanda

well defined located and comfortable. we weee able to bring our dog with us. Whitby is a quaint festive coastal town with great seafood restaurants and friendly people<br/><br/>I did not like the lack of response of staff when we said there was a window which when you opened came off the line of its hinges and was impossible to close letting in a cool draft

Lovely and modern. Very clean. Comfy bed and great location for walking into whitby.<br/><br/>Could have been improved by having a plug near a mirror to dry hair. Also the low roof in the bedroom area is a little difficult to manoeuvre around.

Location and clean.<br/><br/>Headroom to get in and out of bed was rediculous, my wife had to walk around the bottom of the bed and banged her head and back a couple of times on the roof slope. The slope stopped me getting to the other side. Ok for 1 night but not good for longer for the price. Thought it was good using a local business but think we will stick to hotels. Especially as you are charged either a damage insurance of £25 for your stay or leave your card details as cover instead but still charged £10 even if all ok. Travelled a lot and never charged extra at any hotel I've ever stayed. I would not recommend this or host and stay if that's their standard approach.

David

19/12/2022

The property was comfortable, well equipped and in a great location from which to explore Whitby.<br/><br/>The host's agent's communications could have been quite a lot more streamlined. I found I received innumerable emails instructing that I pay a damage deposit or damage insurance or that my stay would be cancelled, and I continued to receive them even once I had paid it.

The location is great. 10 mins to the old market town and swing bridge and 5 mins in the opposite direction is a lovely field and small woodland for a dog walking, perfect for our springer. The dog friendly beech and steps to the Abbey are also within the 10 mins.<br/><br/>The sofa is not the comfiest but then you are not there to sofa surf. Also the ceiling height around the bed needs some negotiating.

Gayle

The Birds Nest is well located and finished to a high standard. Having a parking space was a bonus although it was a very tight space. The accommodation was also very cramped and although well equipped, the kitchen was a little awkward to use and I wouldn't have wanted to tackle much more than tea and toast. The intrusive eaves in the bedroom also became a bit tedious after a couple of days. It was a nice place to stay for a night or two but for the price paid I expected more.

Diane

28/07/2022

Location to the town. Quality of fixtures and fittings.<br/><br/>Parking spaces very small when all the flats are occupied. Lack of hooks to hang wet coats or garments.

Who washes clothes whilst on holiday ?

John

A lovely little flat in a good location. Parking was a bit tight as it's in a corner, but we were able to park behind the space itself with no issues whilst we were there. The flat is a bit smaller than appears in the pictures, but there was enough space for the two of us comfortably. We found a couple of issues with cleanliness (despite the £50 cleaning charge), and it's a shame there are no recycling facilities (only a rubbish bin), however, we were overall pleased with our stay and would consider using the company again for future bookings in Whitby or elsewhere. The flat has been tastefully furnished and decorated, and looking at other listings this seems to be common amongst the host's properties.

There were a few things that weren't working properly at the apartment which we have reported so hopefully they will be fixed for future guests. The apartment had everything we needed for a 3 night stay. It was handy to have a car space. There was everything you needed to make meals and a good size refrigerator. The apartment was very quiet. The location is very hand to all the Whitby stores, restaurants and the abbey. We were there during winter so Whitby was relatively quiet. The apartment was heated very well. Check in and out is very easy.

Sarah

The place was lovely, location was perfect, and the apartment had all the home from home amenities. However the price was really steep, and for what we paid we were really disappointed when we got there to find out the cleaning had not been done properly, there was blood on the sheet, used foil on the baking trays, crumbs on the floor, and the hoover and cleaning equipment had been rammed in the wardrobe making it useless for hanging clothes! When I contacted the owners regarding the cleaning, I was asked if I wanted a reclean I said yes but it never happened. However it was a peaceful location and had lovely views over the harbour.

The location was perfect close enough to the centre of Whitby, only a short walk 5mins, far enough away so the night life did not disturb.<br/><br/>There was nothing to dislike, a lovely property, my only criticism would be required a deeper clean in certain areas such as food crumbs and dust in between sofa cushions

Height of tv’s in comparison to seating is not good. <br/>Bench stools or high seats very uncomfortable.

Great location - quiet and has parking but very close to attractions. Well equipped. Nice decor.<br/><br/>Would be good to have coat hooks and towel hooks and a bit more room for clothes

Location was brilliant. 1st impressions very good.<br/>Dog friendly. We had a lovely time.<br/>Parking space a bonus.<br/><br/>Definitely worth a stay and would stay again in future.<br/><br/>The ceiling in the bedroom is far too low I'm only 5ft8 and I hit my head several times.<br/>Cigarette burn in sofa. <br/>Room temperature on arrival was 27° and felt very uncomfortable. Once aired it was OK.<br/>Storage of Christmas tree in wardrobe not ideal.

The apartment was very clean.<br/><br/>The sofa was not very comfy. There is not enough storage space and there are no coat hooks or anywhere to put wet coats. There is nowhere to hang damp towels.

Location<br/><br/>It is a small flat and it needs more storage. Towel hooks and shelves in the bathroom would help. Coat hooks and show rack in the entrance hall would help. The small wardrobe was half filled with a Xmas tree!

Well appointed apartment with everything we needed for our stay.<br/><br/>The low sloping ceiling above the bed caused a few headaches and bumps. Also the accommodation was very warm to hot .(25c mostly). It is a pity that not all of the windows had blinds making it very light in the early morning!

Advertised as a one bedroomed property, it is not, it is a studio. Bed is difficult to access from one side as ceiling slopes almost onto the bottom of the bed. Not all windows have blinds near the bed so early morning wake up with the sun shinning in. Sofa very uncomfortable. Bathroom is absolutely tiny. No storage in there even the towels seem too big for the room. <br/>Tiny wardrobe storage for clothes but this was full of Christmas decorations so could not be used. <br/>Location to town was good.

Great place, parked car and then didn’t use until we left. Easy walk into Whitby, plenty to do, loved the walk to Robin Hoods bay via Cleveland way.

Lovely little bolt hole. Everything you need. As compact as the birds nest is it’s very well thought out and accommodated 2 adults and 2 dogs. Clean and well situated for a walk into Whitby.

We had a lovely stay at the bird’s nest apart from appliances not working such as heating & the washing machine which was unfortunate given the price we paid for a 5 night stay - however these were quickly fixed when we messaged the team. The flat is great in terms of the river harbour view / location - a short 10 minutes walk into Whitby. Check in was easy and parking was included.

Well situated, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean studio. Just be aware that the bed is in the eaves and it is difficult to get in and out on one side of the bed. Also parking is not marked Flat 2 - marked BN (quite small space).

Home Truths

The apartment is located on the second floor so you will need to climb stairs.

The Birds Nest is located on a new development which can be tricky to find. We will send over a Google Pin of the exact location prior to arrival - we recommend referring to this to help you find the property. Owner instructed only one dog allowed at the property.

If you are travelling with more than one vehicle, you will need to park in a pay and display carpark or nearby free parking. Full details would be provided prior to arrival.

The bedroom has sloped ceilings so we ask guests to mind their head when navigating around the room.
