“Fabulous Home!”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

17a Grape Lane - A perfect home away from home! Beautiful and very comfortably furnished! Easy to get to. Convenient to all of Whitby. Excellent rental staffing. Heat and water excellent! Furnishings are nice (and normal!) and comfortable but not so perfect that you don't want to use them! We feel very much at home here. I LOVE the little computer alcove! Best of 3 holiday rentals we've experienced in Whitby.

“A beautiful apartment in a fantastic location.”
Reviewed February 20, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have stayed in a wide variety of cottages and apartments in Whitby but this one is definitely the best. The apartment is furnished and decorated to an excellent standard. The location is very central for the heart of the old town.

“Always excellent”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stay at 17a, Grape Lane at least once a year (often twice).

The location is superb, the views wonderful and the standard of the accommodation excellent (and constantly maintained - a new en-suite bathroom this time :-)).

Perfect for a couple or family.

Thank you again.

Our previous stay at Grape Lane was 3 years ago so we knew what to expect and was not
disappointed this time. Still very high standard so clean with nice fresh white sheets and fluffy white towels perfect location. Will be booking again next year for a special celebration.

Excellent accommodation, well equipped and a great location. You could not be closer to the action....swing bridge, Abbey steps, shops, pubs and restaurants and yet once inside secluded with great views.

“Excellent accommodation in Central Whitby”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

If you fancy a break in a lovely apartment , clean and airy with views of the harbour and close to all amenities this is for you. There is some noise form the streets below and the boats in the harbour but this is to be expected in a working port .You are a stones throw form all the history of Whitby , the Abbey can be reached in less than 5 mins. Apartment warm and well equipped perfect spot experience a working fishing port
