“Short Break 27th june 2014”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

we are four ladies who for the last 7 years have gone away together for a short break and this year we decided on Whitby.

We stayed in Fawcett House just on Flowergate which is very central for all the attractions.

This cottage is hidden down one of the many alleyways to be found in Whitby. Up the first flight of stairs takes you to the bedrooms. The décor throughout has a sumptuous colonial feel and carved wooden decorations are found on the walls along with ornate wall lamps. The 3 bedrooms ( 1 doubled, 1 kingsize and 1 single) are roomy and extremely comfortable, (there is a lovely view across the harbour from the double bedroom) although the single bedroom has little room for luggage there is lots of storage for clothes in the hallway just outside the bedroom. There are two bathrooms one ensuite, shower room and a family bathroom with both full sized bath and shower.

The living area is situated in the roof space and the kitchen is well laid out and has all 'mod cons'. There is plentiful seating both in the dining area and 'lounge' section, with one truly comfy sofa, so you may end up fighting over it. There are lovely views across the rooftops to the church and abbey. In fact you can see people struggling up the famous 199 steps from the cosiness of your accommodation. There is no parking directly by the property (a 40 minute limit allows for unloading etc) and it's not a long walk from on street parking nearby.

Ladies from Leeds.

This cottage is hidden down one of the many alleyways to be found in Whitby.
Up the first flight of stairs takes you to the bedrooms. The decor throughout has a sumptious colonial feel and carved wooden decorations are found on the walls along with ornate wall lamps. The beds are roomy and extremely comfortable, (there is a lovely view across the harbour from the double bedroom) though the single bedroom has little room for luggage and the storage for clothes is in the hallway. The bathroom had not only a shower but also a bath which pleased us all greatly, and the ensuite in the kingsize bedroom was decently sized and with a good extractor fan. Our only concern was that as there is a small local supermarket nearby and a coffee shop below the noise from them opening up woke us at about 7am, but it quietens down within the hour if you wish to have a lazy morning. It is quieter in the single and double bedrooms but sounds travels across the rooftops and down the alleyways which is due to the cramped nature of buildings which is part of the charm of this historic port.
The living area is situated in the roof space and the kitchen is well laid out and has all 'mod cons'. There is plentiful seating both in the dining area and 'lounge' section, with one truly comfy sofa, so you may end up fighting over it. There are lovely views across the rooftops to the church and abbey. In fact you can see people struggling up the famous 199 steps from the cosiness of your accomodation.
