What a find.
This little townhouse is located under the vioduct and on the river in a peaceful location.
There is easy parking opposite the accommodation.
A well stocked kitchen is located on the ground floor with open plan dining for 6 people. A narrow staircase leads to the upper level where a small bedroom with bunk beds is found and the main living area with access onto the balcony. A shower room is also located on this floor. A further narrow staircase leads to the top floor where where a further 2 bedrooms are found with a bathroom.
Whitby is easily accessible by foot (up a very steep hill) by crossing the vioduct and following the cycle path into the centre of town.
We would certainly consider returning to the prefect holiday house which represents great value for money.
This is the first time we have stayed at Richard & Judith's holiday home, we could not have chosen a better place, the location was perfect for us, it was in a lovely & relaxing setting next to the Larpool Viaduct and overlooking the River Esk, we found the balcony was great for watching the Steam Train and the wildlife from, the house accommodated 6 adults with plenty of room to spare, it was very comfortable, had everything we needed and was very clean, we found the information folder Richard & Judith supplied of things to do in and around Whitby very interesting, so much so we are going to have to go back for a longer stay to explore further. We will definitely be recommending Streanaeshalch to all our family & friends, we look forward to doing a return trip, Thank you Richard & Judith for making our stay so enjoyable. :) :)
Lots to see and do in Whitby and the surrounding area. We visited Whitby Abby, Goathland (via steam train) and the Yorkshire Dales during our stay. This property is a real home from home.
We enjoyed our stay here. The house had everything we could need.
The first night we were a bit on the warm side however we discovered the thermostat in the dining area was set to about 24C so once this was adjusted we were more comfortable.
The location is very peaceful beside the river a short distance outside Whitby it is located among a group of holiday homes. There was a play area for children and a pool but not sure if these are available to everyone it was not clear.
The house was clean and the beds made up and comfortable, the only complaint we had was that the floors are so creaky and the doors are all on self closers as they are fire doors and they tend to slam after you if you don't close them carefully so it was difficult not to wake the whole house if you needed the loo in the night.
Would definitely rent the house again if going this way it was excellent value for money.
This house has everything you could need. We only had a couple of nights and it would have veen great to stay longer. Set in a great location with fantastic walks. The walk over the viaduct into Whitby showed us places & views we had never seen before. The view is lovely & it is so peaceful around it.
