Set right in the heart of Whitby’s historic old town, this cottage is aptly named after the old cobbled street that leads you through the town from the iconic swing bridge which opens for boats sailing up and down the harbour, past your door step and the quirky independent shops and cafés to the foot of the 199 steps which take you up to the abbey.
A former fisherman’s cottage, this Grade II listed property from 1785 has been lovingly renovated and restored in 2020. The owner has taken care to ensure that the character and features of the building remain as part of its charm and history, with wooden beams and winding staircases, yet with fitted bathrooms and a kitchen, you will find many of your home comforts. This cottage provides every guest with a warm welcome and a truly memorable, authentic Whitby experience. With the many attractions of the town just outside your front door, there is no better place to be!
