“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed at 17a Grape Lane with two friends and we had an absolutely fantastic time! The location is amazing with all the attractions of Whitby just out of the door. There are beautiful views of the harbour from the house too. The house was was extremely well equipped, with everything provided right down to umbrellas and jigsaws for rainy days! We couldn't have asked for anything more - this was one of the best holidays I've ever had!

“Great Accommodation / Ideal Location”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

With plenty of out-of-season accommodation to pick from it was hard to choose, but I'm really pleased we went for this place. I was initially swayed by the central location and the informative communication from the owners, which stood out from other replies.

Although there's nowhere to park immediately outside, you can drop off and collect luggage and passengers, and there's free on-street parking within a few minutes' walk, or paid parking nearer still.

The accommodation has this shared entrance with the Cook Memorial museum, which gives you easy access during the day and a private courtyard to the harbourside in the evening. The place itself is well appointed with surprisingly large rooms for a central property and has great views.

For future trips, the only reason I'd look elsewhere to stay would be if this property was already booked.

“ANOTHER GREAT MINI-BREAK IN GRAPE LANE”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our second time in the house and it's still as good as the last time. Perfect situation and lovely views. Even when the weather isn't kind it's great to scuttle back to the house and get cosy again. A perfect retreat in gorgeous Whitby.

“Superb accommodation, unbelievable location and fantastic stay!!!”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We visited with my wife and her parents for my wifes birthday weekend and it was perfect. We arrived Friday afternoon and found the place with ease thanks to the instructions from Emma (owner). The location of the apartment is perfect literally next door to the Captain Cook museum, with a private yard and amazing views of the harbour. All amenities are close by, Co-Op, pubs and of course fish and chips!
The flat is full of character and beautifully maintained.
We will definitely be staying again just can't wait for it!!!!!

“Luxury in the heart of Whitby”
Reviewed 4 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This is the best accommodation we've ever had in Whitby, and we've stayed in a fair few over the years! The location is perfect, with a lovely private yard in the evenings with views of the harbour. The flat is full of character, every room has a view of either the estuary or the narrow lane outside which is full of life by day and relatively peaceful by night - you're on first floor above the lane so it's not intrusive at all. The owners have made it very comfortable with lots of lovely added touches including a good book and DVD collection. The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious and with two bathrooms and a downstairs loo, plenty of space for everyone. Great selection of restaurants and take-aways on your doorstep. Would highly recommend and hope to return soon.
