Wellspring Apartment is nestled in the centre of Harrogate and is a true gem to find in the charming Victorian spa town. The one-bedroom apartment is modern and homely with everything you need within walking distance. Throughout the property, you’ll find a cool mix of traditional features and contemporary furnishings. It is the perfect place to relax after a long day of exploring the beautiful town.

Harrogate is one of Yorkshire’s most stylish locations. There’s something for everyone, especially when it comes to shopping. Whether you’re looking for antiques, arts and crafts, high-end fashion or jewellery – you’ll find plenty of unique stores and boutiques to discover.

There are cosy bistros, cafes, restaurants and bars lining the cobbled streets. Harrogate also boasts lush gardens which are lovely to explore.


Step outside of the centre and you’ll discover the Yorkshire Dales on your doorstep. From the valleys to the peaks, there’s lots of varied landscapes to explore. Enjoy long walks, rock climbing, mountain biking, abseiling and much more!

Harrogate Train Station is less than a 15-minute walk away from Wellspring Apartment so York, Leeds and Knaresborough can easily be reached via rail.



Hobo Penthouse is located in the delightful Victorian spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea on the North Yorkshire coast.

Located in the heart of the town, the apartment is only a short walk from the beach and lower promenade. Take the oldest functioning cliff lift in the UK down to the promenade and you’ll arrive at the 208-metre pier which stretches out into the sea. The long sandy shores are overlooked by colourful boutique beach huts and high cliffs tower in the distance.


Saltburn has plenty of beautiful walks too. The Valley Gardens are a maze of paths and tracks which wind through the flowers and woodland. If you want to explore further, The Cleveland Way National Trail is over 100 miles long and Saltburn is included. If you fancy a 17.5 mile jaunt, start at Saltburn and walk your way to Sandsend. This walk is a great way to explore the North Yorkshire coastline and the views are beautiful!

Hobo Penthouse is a bright and airy space boasting amazing sea views of the Northern coastline. The apartment is close to all local amenities including independent shops, bars, restaurants and bistros.

Saltburn Train Station is a short walk away and has routes to Longbeck, Redcar, Middlesbrough and Darlington with connecting trains to Newcastle, York, Leeds, Manchester and London.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Saltburn. Hop on the Arriva North East route and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Staithes, Runswick Bay and Whitby. The Moorsbus route has drop offs at Newton Under Roseberry, Great Ayton, Stokesley and Helmsley.


Duck Down Cottage is a cosy one-bedroom holiday home in the centre of the coastal town of Whitby. The property was originally built in 1690 reportedly using stone from a demolished castle, so the cottage is filled with character and history.

Only a short 5-minute walk to the seafront, Duck Down Cottage is the perfect spot for a seaside break. You’ll find cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants on Pier Road. At the end of the lively road, you’ll reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.


The East bank is full of narrow medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and even more 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.

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 are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby too. 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.
