Cottage
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!

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

Couldn't have asked for anything better the cottage more than met our expectations. The cottage has everything you need for a cosy pleasant stay. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds are lovely and comfortable. The cottage is very clean and Nichola is an amazing hostess very attentive and on hand should you need her, not that you will. The shops, bars and restaurants are literally on the doorstep. Had a nice meal at the Edge restaurant and a lovely take away from the Passage to India to name a few! Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Nichola x

What a beautiful cottage the corner house is . We enjoyed our stay and had everything you need from tea,coffee,sugar,milk and a bottle of wine. Location Nicola has a host was on hand if you needed her. I will be back again in the nearly future. The price for cottage is the one thing that attracted us to staying there when we were looking to come to whitby but we got so much more what a gem the cottage is .

The Corner House, Whitby. This cottage is gorgeous we loved it. Everything you need is in the Cottage along with a welcoming bottle of Wine to welcome you. It is very central in Whitby with some fantastic Restaurants only a few doors away. The Italian Cosa Nostra 4 doors away is amazing with both the food & service. The Indian Moments across the road was lovely & Trenchers the Fish & Chip Restaurant is a must visit the best Prawns in batter we have ever tasted. All shops within walking distance no cars needed. Nichola Greenwood is a great & helpful host. Highly recommended

The house has a perfect location and was immaculate. there is all the equipment you need to feed a family. However its central location surrounded by restaurant and pub (especially Mister Chip across the road) does not incentive you to cook in the cottage. the service (even for a self catering) was great. We were accompanied from pre-arrival to after departure via text from the host. would recommends to any-one whom, like us, normally stays in hotels.

Hi, It's absolutely fantastic to hear that we may have converted you to having self catering holidays, that would be wonderful! It's brilliant that our Little Cottage by The Sea was what you needed for our stay and yes, we have a full kitchen but given how great the surrounding restaurants are, we very rarely cook when we stay too, so know exactly what you mean! You'd be very welcome back, so whenever you fancy having a wander, just drop us a line. Cheers, Nichola x Greenwood Holiday Cottages

I have stayed at the Corner House many times over the last few years. It in a great position on the east side of the Esk. One of the great things is everything is so close. One of my favourite times is in the evening when it is quieter you can step outside and enjoy the old part of the town and it's cobbled streets. The cottage itself is still full of character and history. The open plan kitchen, sitting and dining area work well and whilst there are many restaurants close at hand it's easy to prepare and cook in the cottage. The owners really go out of their way to ensure everything is perfect for your stay. The selfish part of me does not want to recommend the Corner House, because if it gets too popular I might not be able to get the weeks I want. However, the owner's deserve recognition for how they run their business.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Corner House. The cottage is lovely, compact but with everything you need and plenty of room for a family of four. Stylishly decorated with a pristine kitchen and spotless thoughout. Fabulous location right in the centre of Whitby, just over the Swing Bridge on the Abbey side, close to shops, cafes and bars. No parking (apart from to drop off luggage) but we had no problem finding a parking place within 5 minutes walk of the cottage, even during the busy half term holiday. Definitely recommend and we hope to return soon.

About the neighborhood
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.
