Beautiful Apartment in a great location. Everything very clean with a great deal of thought out into all the things in the rooms.
Loved the views. Has everything you need and more. Very friendly staff at Whitby Cottages! Will definitely go again.
Great location, nicely decorated (the kitsch seaside cottage stuff has been relegated to the grand entrance lobby) very well equipped kitchen, 3 TVs, 2 baths, luxury toiletries. In fact it's much nicer than my house, but I have hot water on tap and good Wifi.
This was mainly a walking holiday and we quickly spotted the problem. After a long day walking the coast there's no hot water for an evening soak in that lovely roll top bath. I suspect the hot water tank is shared with the 2 holiday rentals below. There's a booster immersion heater (remember those?) but it's an hour wait for a bath full.
The other issue is that the Wifi is also shared with between the 3 rentals in the building. It's not the speed, it's because the signal varies greatly, OK in the twin bedroom but the main room is the dead spot, it's strongest at the bottom of the stairs, the router is located in the flat below. So forget streaming, bring a pre-loaded laptop or tablet with a HDMI lead for your media pleasure.
If you don't need strong Wifi or hot water to soak your aching bones when you get home then this could possibly be one of the nicest holiday rents in Whitby, it all depends on what you want and need. We loved some things about the place, but it didn't quite work for us, but it might do for you.
This cottage is so lovely. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds very comfortable. The shower is powerful and the roll top bath in the master bedroom is just a lovely added luxury. Very clean and homely so much so my 5 year old didn't want to leave and has already asked to go back next year. The location is perfect and only a 2 minute walk from the beach and 5 minutes from the old town. Definitely by far the best accommodations we've had.
Just stayed in the Sea Shanty as a guest of some friends who stayed for Goth week. We loved the location, and the high standard throughout. Really helpful owner, who had a great welcome pack. We will be staying again !
Stayed in Sea Shanty and everything was spotless. Everything was supplied that we could possible need! Really like the bath in the bed room, nice and centeral in Whitby, great place will be coming back soon!!
Absolutely fabulous seaside property, nice and clean. Great location and has everything you could need. Slight problem finding parking spaces, so didn't use car much, but little boy was happy with beach & walking round Whitby. Good play park near museum. Would definitely recommend this property.

Stayed here for a week, fantastic location for everything, very central.
Lovely apartment, very clean and spacious. Had everything we need including wifi which was great! Fab views from the bedroom window looking out over the Harbour. The roll top bath in the bedroom was an added luxury!
Walking distance from the beach and anything you'd need for your visit such as supermarket, shops, pubs, bars and restaurants so a car isn't necessary (very close to bus station and train station-including the steam train).
If you do have a car, York is an hour away, Scarborough 30 mins, as well as Dalby forest and flamingo land Resort and theme park around a 45mins journey.
Recommend a walk along the sandy beach towards Sandsend when the tide is out.
Lovely area and great accommodation we are defiantly planning on staying in Sea Shanty again soon.
Thank you for everything!
