Property Details

The Space
The Old Chapel has plenty of space for you to roam about in. The open-plan living, kitchen and dining area has plenty of comfy seating, with a spacious sofa and a comfy armchair, providing the perfect place to relax in front of the TV after a busy day exploring the best of what Whitby has to offer. You’ll also find a wooden dining table with six well spread out chairs, and a fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs.

A true highlight is the master bedroom at The Old Chapel has a king-size bed complete with plush bedding and premium bed linens. You’ll also find a modern en-suite bathroom with a shower, wash basin and WC. The other two bedrooms consist of one double room, as well as a twin room which is ideal for those with children.

Neighborhood
The Old Chapel is located near the harbour in Whitby and you’ll find restaurants, shops and pubs less than a 10-minute walk away.

The property 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, 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’.

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
You’ll find restaurants, pubs and shops just in a short walk from The Old Chapel.

Whitby train station is nearby 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 Old Chapel is a wonderful property set in a lovely if busy town. The property was very well kept, very clean and with all the amenities that you need. We chose specifically because everything was on one floor which proved invaluable. The en suite and main bathroom were spotless, as was the rest of the property. The heating was easy to use, as were the rest of the appliances. Subtle instructions around the property meant that you were not second guessing anything. The bonus of on site parking was a definite advantage. Instructions received before we arrived were really clear, and we accessed the property without any issues. We enjoyed Whitby, however, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood's bay are most certainly worth a visit. We would highly recommend this property.

Very comfortable, convenient and well fitted out flat<br/><br/>Host and stay policy to charge for returning deposit or offer insurance instead. That wasn't apparent before booking and seems like a money making scheme. Very off-putting and a shame for the owner who has created a lovely place to stay.

Beautiful place, looks stunning, comfortable, clean, good size, parking for one vehicle, walking distance to town.<br/><br/>It wasn't clear that the second vehicle would be parked on the street, would have preferred a washer/dryer rather than just a washing machine. Walk into town is steep.

Really spacious and well-appointed property. We liked the fact it was all on one level as we were all taking part in an ultra marathon during our stay and weren’t sure we’d be able to manage stairs after that! On-street parking available at no cost, plus a reserved space.<br/><br/>After I’d paid for the booking in full, I was required to put down an accidental damage deposit. Whilst I had no real issue with this (despite never having had to pay one before), it was the fact that I also had to pay a £10 admin fee for the privilege of the landlord’s agents handling £250 of my money (taking it, and repaying it). A nice little earner for Host & Stay who apparently have 600 properties that they advertise via Booking.com! I objected to this but was told it was mandatory and couldn’t be waived. It definitely left a bitter taste as this was not listed in the advertisement nor the booking details.

We had a lovely stay at this spacious, well equipped flat - really handy for central Whitby and was actually larger than it appeared in the photos. Also has parking, which is a bonus in Whitby!

Lovely apartment, we all enjoyed our stay here, big space and everything you need for a nice weekend away. Not far from town centre which is helpful.

The accommodation was 'home-from-homw' and had everything you needed. It's also only about a 10 minute walk from the middle of Whitby.<br/><br/>Only small issue was that they don't supply shower gel and shampoo that are normally included elsewhere. However, only minor and you can bring your own now you know.

Stephanie

This truly was a home from home for us. The apartment is really well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need to cook if you need/want to, there are books and games for entertainment, free WiFi and plenty of TV channels. The location was fantastic, just a few minutes walk into Whitby. We didn't use our car at all whilst staying here.<br/><br/>This is difficult to answer, as we really had a fabulous time here. If I had to pick on something, it would be the lack of absorbency in the bath towels.

Jessica

Accommodation was lovely and better than expected. We were two families of three and there was more than enough room for us all. Very relaxing and felt right at home, I did say on many occasions that I could live there. There was everything you’d need and even the small things such as hot chocolate, coffee and tea which was a lovely touch. There is a Lidl or a Co-op as well as an Original Factory Shop for the person who forgot their pyjamas. Going to bed was the best as the beds are so comfortable and linen was fresh and clean. I had various questions and they were answered very quickly and also clearly. The only problem I think we had was parking the second car as there wasn’t any on street parking available but this was Easter weekend. Overall we’d visit again and this would be a first choice for accommodation.

David

Very well furnished, everything you could need, plenty of space, well maintained. Home from Home, even a welcome pack.<br/><br/>The location is not liked by Sat Nav’s (2 travelling separately, with similar issues. The regimented ongoing prolonged booking progress, being feared into damage Insurance, caused me paranoia whilst there, probably why it is so clean and tidy.

David

Great place to stay. The accommodation was very clean modern and extremely well equipped having everything you needed for a wonderful holiday. Cannot praise it enough.

Catherine

From initial booking communication with Host and Stay was great. On arrival we were impressed with the layout of the Chapel , it was bigger than the pictures indicated . As we were travelling with my 70 year old parents - the no steps one level was perfect . We loved the comfy sofas , powerful showers and how well equipped the kitchen was was cooking up full meals from scratch . The location worked for us as it was really quiet but just a 5 minute stroll down hill to the swing bridge . <br/>Having a parking space was a huge bonus as we were able to leave the car during our whole stay .

location was great, and overall accommodation was good.<br/><br/>The toilet seat was hanging off in the main bathroom, and wasn,t dealt with during our stay. <br/>The oven and grill were not very clean inside, (baked on grease), the temperature numbers were rubbed off, it could do with renewing in my opinion, we didn't use it because of this.I took a cushion off the sofa to plump it up and found popcorn and other crumbs underneath.General things that the cleaner should notice.

We had a fantastic family weekend away at the Old Chapel! It is beautifully decorated and well equipped, comfortably accommodating six adults. The location was perfect for exploring Whitby on foot, so everyone could enjoy a drink in one of the many local pubs - we particularly enjoyed our visit to Whitby Brewery. <br/>Prompt communications from the host made booking and checking-in easy. Would highly recommend ?

Laura

We have had such a lovely stay in The Old Chapel. An excellent location in a quiet spot, yet not too far from town. The parking space was a real bonus too. Check in was very easy, and communication with the the hosts was great. The Chapel is beautifully decorated and so well equipped, you couldn't ask for much more really. We can't wait to come back, thanks so much!
