Property Details

The Space
The Cinder Track Hideaway is tastefully decorated with unique interiors and furnishings throughout. As soon as you step foot into the apartment, you’ll feel at home.

With a comfy sofa, seaside themed features and a flat screen TV, the living room is a cosy space to relax. You can enjoy incredible views across the River Esk and Larpool Viaduct from the french doors and juliet balcony.
Kick back on the sofa after a long day of exploring Whitby or gather your friends and family together for games and laughter. Also sharing this space is the dining area which is a minimalistic space. The dining table is ideal for family breakfasts and meals with friends. There is a real focus on spending quality time with loved ones at The Cinder Track Hideaway.

In the kitchen, glossy kitchen cabinets are paired with modern appliances. A neutral colour scheme works with the brown wooden worktops. It is as charming as it is practical with a dishwasher, fridge, washing machine, cooker, kettle, microwave and toaster.

In The Cinder Track Hideaway you’ll find two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have a relaxing and homely feel. You can expect a relaxing night’s sleep as each room has comfortable beds and quality linen. The first bedroom has a king-size bed, whilst the second is a twin.

The bathroom has a monochromatic style with white tiles and shiny white facilities such as the bathtub, which has an overhead shower. There is also a wash basin and WC.

The Cinder Track Hideaway is located on the West side of Whitby. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find cosy pubs and restaurants as well as fun arcades. Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Head over the swing bridge and you’ll find yourself on the East side of town which is full of narrow, mediaeval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and fish restaurants. You’ll be amongst plenty of history on the East side of town. Whitby Abbey was originally a 7th-century monastery and it even went on to inspire Bram Stoker’s famous 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
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from The Cinder Track Hideaway.

Whitby train station is a mile 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.

Was a lovely, well furnished apartment and in a great location for walking to the centre of Whitby. Would definitely recommend.



Lovely and clean with a well equipped kitchen . Great views<br/><br/>The key did not work to the rear entrance and there fire we did have to drag our luggage from where tye car was parked round to the other entrance . Not a big deal though . Also have never had to pay a non refundable damage waiver of £25 before ( this wasn’t even shown on the website originally but it has since been updated . We were only staying for 3 nights so did obviously add to the cost



It was a lovely apartment. I can not fault it in a way. Lovely location overlooking the cinder track. Very homely and comfortable. We will be definitely be visiting again ?<br/><br/>Nothing



Most enjoyable stay,would consider staying there again







The apartment was spotless.<br/>The kitchen was fully equipped.<br/>The lounge/diner had a comfy sofa, with two benches and a table for dining.<br/>The two bedrooms were well furnished.<br/>The location was very quiet.<br/>The view from the lounge when there was no fog was pretty good too!<br/><br/>Finding the apartment was tricky at the end.<br/>The beds were very firm!<br/>The blinds in the bedroom are not blackout blinds, a deal breaker in summer.



Very clean and spacious<br/><br/>Long walk to town for elderly relatives



Very clean apartment and extremely well equipped. Smart TV. Excellent value. A good 15 minute walk into town which we didn't mind.<br/><br/>Mattress on double bed was a little hard, but not too bad.



Fantastic apartment, very clean and well equipped. Nice walk into town to keep us fit! Would definitely return.





Nice apartment, everything neat and tidy. Nice walk into town not so when raining! Will come back.



Spacious, comfortable & clean with a nice quiet setting<br/><br/>N/A



Thanks for an amazing stay as usual- Super comfy and clean. Thanks for the prosecco on arrival.



Good location within a modern block of fairly new estate with own parking space. Overlooking the Cinder Track and green land. Rabbits seen playing outside in the morning. Host has a good selection of games, beach toys and some binoculars for guests to use. Quality contents, bedding, homeware etc. 10 mins walk into Whitby. 'Instagram' ready! Including huge mirror in the bedroom for selfies! Bottle of prosecco and chocolate biscuits gift.. how lovely. <br/>Host kindly leave dishwasher tablets and bin bags too.<br/><br/>Master bed very hard. Could do with some high ball glasses. Massive mirror in the bedroom... we're not into Instagram pictures!?

Thank you for a fantastic place to stay. It had everything we needed. Only a short walk into Whitby and the children enjoyed watching the wildlife. We loved the Quirky decor.

Claire, Stephen


Second visit and won't be our last. beautiful apartment and super helpful owners 5*. Relaxed and chilled in gorgeous surroundings - just what we needed !

Martin and Helen


Thank you for another lovely stay in your apartment, and for the prosecco and biscuits. Both Much appreciated. It is so nice and quiet here, which is just how we like it/ Enjoyed watching the wildlife and just being able to relax. Everything has just been perfect. Until next time ! ......





Modern bright, equipped with everything you need. Extra touches, like wine, chocolate, biscuits, tea, and coffee. Excellent walks, close by, 15-minute walk into Whitby. Spotlessly clean.<br/><br/>The double mattress was too hard, I am used to an orthopaedic mattress, which is firm, but this was another level. I slept on one of the single beds, which was a little better. It wouldn't stop me from going back, though. Everything else was brilliant.



Lovely homely feel. Lots already there which was great. Lots of bits of toys for younger children which was a lovely touch. Home from home feel. 10 minute walk to the town and harbour. We found a few routes to cut through the estate. Would go back and would recommend



the Prosecco. the cleanliness. short walk into town. the quirkiness of the decor. facilities excellent.<br/><br/>key box could have had name on outside. weren’t sure want number the apartment was.

Tina & Pete


The apartment is beautiful with everything we needed to make our stay home from home. First time in Whitby and what a wonderful experience its fantastic with really friendly locals.



Very well equipped in perfect location for us with parking.



Lovely location and beautiful views and very quite and nice walk to Whitby and very well kitted out for self catering and was very surprised with prosecco and biscuits thankyou had a lovely weekend Whitby never disappoints xx<br/><br/>Not a dislike but had problem finding key box and also getting into it and labelled on inside not outside think I would be could when you send key box number to also say that it's the top box on the side of the front door xx







Quiet location. Dedicated parking. Apt had all the facilities we needed.<br/><br/>Parking in Whitby a nightmare and expensive.



Lovely weather, lovely Whitby, lovely apartment. Great time was had by all.



Lovely, comfortable, spotless apartment. Eveything we needed to make it home from home. Great location as a base to visit Whitby and surrounding areas. Free parking.





Made our own meals<br/><br/>Couldn't find it easily as sat nav took us to bridge of cinder track



clean and tidy



The Cinder Track Hideaway is a lovely, clean and modern apartment and we had a great stay there. The hosts have thought of everything! The views are spectacular. The welcome pack was a kind thought. We brought our Ukrainian guests to show them Whitby and they loved the apartment. Thank you so much, we hope to return.
