About the neighbourhood
Hanover Cottage is located on Prospect Hill, which is on the west side of Whitby. It is on the main route to the town centre and it is approximately a 5-minute walk down the hill to the centre of town and the attractions. Pannett Park is nearby and has a fantastic outdoor maritime themed adventure playground. The bus and train stations, Harbour, beach, shops, restaurants and bars are 1Km away and bus stops are near to the property. Guests can park securely on the driveway adjacent to the property, which has room for 4-5 cars. The house is slightly higher than road level with gardens to the front and side and parking to the rear, therefore it does retain privacy.
Getting around
Whitby is best explored by foot and most attractions are 5-10 minutes walk from the house. Public transport is accessible within 20 metres of the property and there are plenty of local taxis available. If you want to head out of Whitby without taking the car, the train station is a 5-minute walk from the house.
