Alternatively public transport can be accessed within 10 metres of the house or you can use a local taxi service. Pannett Park is nearby and has a fantastic maritime themed play area. There is so much to do in Whitby and the surrounding coastal and rural villages. The house has 8 beds (1 king, 1 double & 6 single) and comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests on a self-catering basis. It is ideal for groups of friends or large families wanting to holiday together. We have taken care to provide everything the self-catering guest needs, with all the comforts of home and much more. We welcome families and provide items such as cots and high chairs for younger guests. Sorry, we do not accept any pets at the property. We offer holidays of 7 nights or more all year round, usually starting at 3pm on a Saturday. Our prices start from £180 per night and include all utilities, unlimited wifi, duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels. We also provide short breaks at a minimum of 3 nights in quieter months, with flexible arrival days. Please note that our short breaks are only available to book 12 weeks in advance of arrival. Hanover Cottage has been updated in recent years but retains many of its period features. A large, fully equipped kitchen diner provides a great social space for eating and drinking together. This leads to a spacious living room and conservatory, providing additional space to relax. A ground floor twin bedroom with an adjacent family bathroom is ideal for guests who can't manage stairs. A further 4 bedrooms are located on the first floor with 2 bathrooms (1 of which is ensuite to the master bedroom). The house has gas central heating and underfloor heating in the kitchen and ground floor bathroom. The beautiful, established gardens are enclosed by hedges and fencing and the driveway has a 5-bar gate. A patio area with a table, seating, parasol and traditional BBQ is great for dining and drinks alfresco. Please note that the garden does have some steps. To get your holiday started a welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, bread, milk, biscuits, preserves and a bottle of white wine awaits your arrival! Sorry, we do not accept any pets at the property- even well behaved ones! We also do not allow smoking in the house. Please do get in touch if you have any questions prior to making a reservation.

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 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.
