Holiday Rental House
Situated in the very heart of the oldest, historic part of the east side of Whitby, The Corner House is one of the oldest properties in Whitby, with a lease first being signed in 1639! Fully renovated in 2014 with a host of quality fixtures and fittings to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We love our location, as it's perfect for travellers of all ages with there being no hills, steep steps or cobbles to negotiate with walking sticks or pushchairs. We're still within very, very easy reach of shopping and eating and drinking establishments, as well as being close to attractions and the beach. Travelling with young children? Unfortunately, we've taken the decision not to provide a travel cot any more, however, we do still have a 'Retract-a-Gate' baby gate, a high chair, potty ...Situated in the very heart of the oldest, historic part of the east side of Whitby, The Corner House is one of the oldest properties in Whitby, with a lease first being signed in 1639! Fully renovated in 2014 with a host of quality fixtures and fittings to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We love our location, as it's perfect for travellers of all ages with there being no hills, steep steps or cobbles to negotiate with walking sticks or pushchairs. We're still within very, very easy reach of shopping and eating and drinking establishments, as well as being close to attractions and the beach. Travelling with young children? Unfortunately, we've taken the decision not to provide a travel cot any more, however, we do still have a 'Retract-a-Gate' baby gate, a high chair, potty and a toddler's training toilet seat - to save you having to try to cram everything you need into the car! In the kitchen and open plan living room you'll find that we've gone to town with everything from York stone flooring and granite worktops to a separate drinks cooler (so you don't have to choose between the wine and the milk!), free wi-fi and loads of books and DVDs (we've removed the games for the time being). Nothing has been left out, to make your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Upstairs, the shower room has a fabulous, large shower enclosure (big enough for two - if that's what takes your fancy!), along with W.C and vintage wash basin (we haven't got a baby bath right now though, so you may need to bring one). Bedroom 1 (The Green Room) This has the most comfortable king sized metal bed that I've slept in for ages and a gorgeous super king sized, super snuggly, Christy duvet. We've even put a wall mounted television with Freeview and DVD player in there, in case you decide to stay in bed all day! This room also has plenty of storage and great, dual aspect windows with fabulous views of the upper harbour. Bedroom 2 (The Yellow Room) This is another good sized bedroom with two single metal beds with lovely, super cosy, double sized Christy duvets. Again, we've put a wall mounted television with Freeview and DVD player in there, for when you want to keep the kids quiet! This room also has plenty of storage and the same fabulous views of the upper harbour. Whilst the cottage does not have its own dedicated parking space, there is a very handy, free, one hour, limited waiting bay just outside, which is ideal for unloading your bags and there's a Council run, long stay car park approximately 50 metres away, which provides you with the option of using a 'cashless' parking system (which lets you pay via a mobile app and even reminds you when your ticket is about to expire!) - very handy! Otherwise, further up the street there is free, on street parking. Did you also know that Holiday Lettings aren't our sole booking agent? We can be found really easily in loads of other places!More

I'll start off with what we don't allow here at The Corner House-Whitby. We don't allow pets, smoking (including any type of e-cigarette) or hen/stag parties.

About the neighbourhood
Come and visit our Whitby, which is nestled along the banks of the natural harbour at the mouth of the River Esk, Yorkshire's only Salmon river, and see how flawless Whitby jet, made famous by Queen Victoria, is turned into arguably some of the most beautiful jewellery in the world. Then wander around its narrow streets crammed full of independent traders, selling everything from dog treats to dinosaurs! The Pannett Park museum and its grisly 'Hand of Glory' is another 'must see'; together with a visit (or two!) to the many local hostelries, where a thriving live music scene can be found. A 5 minute stroll from The Corner House is Whitby Railway Station, where the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway will make you feel like you've been transported back in time! Journ...
Getting around
As soon as you arrive in Whitby my advice is to leave the car in the car park! Not only because parking spaces are at a premium but because Whitby and its surroundings are brilliant for exploring on foot or via public transport. An open top bus runs from the west side of town up to the Abbey (if you don't fancy the 199 steps!) a regular intervals through the day, as well as scheduled bus services from the station to Scarborough, Sleights, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and many other places. There is also the North York Moors Railway, which runs every day from Pickering to Whitby, with its fantastic collection of preserved steam and diesel trains - a must for all the family.
