We were rightly warned that the stairs were a bit steep- especially relevant for that night time visit to the bathroom-- but-- everything else was top-notch.. We loved watching the hordes of day trippers making their way along Church Street as they contemplated the 199 steps up to the abbey or checked to see if the tide was out enough for them to go down onto the beech. They were tourists-- we felt almost like residents. No knickerbocker glory this visit as the ice-cream parlour downstairs chose our week to have a few days off. Ideally placed for our favourite restaurants and the wet-fish shop, pub just across the road. Good free-sat TV and strong Wi-Fi; comfy living room, and the kitchen equipment, especially the frying pans and pans, all looked more or less brand new.As we prepared to leave [driving the car to load up the bulk of our luggage on our last evening when things were quiet] shops were beginning their preparations for the next few Whitby extravaganzas --- Halloween and Goth weekend....and vampires and bats abounded. We booked a week's parking ticket @ £7 a day [ which covers the abbey, Robin Hood's Bay, Filey and best of all Staithes- as well as Whitby]
Lovely one bedroom flat on 2 levels, situation in a great location at the base of the 199 steps. Flat nicely equipped to meet all your needs. Close to beach, bars, restaurants. Only problem may be trying to park close by - this is a Whitby in general issue though.
