This self catering 2 bedroom holiday accommodation was originally the servants quarters (and latterly a jet workshop) in the ‘Old Manor House’ built circa 1740 by Sir Adam Boulby who owned the now defunct tenements that formed ‘Boulby Bank’ and the footpath that takes you down and back from the harbour and town.
The stairs to the apartment are steep and narrow and not suitable for people with mobility problems or young children.
The self catering facilities include a combination microwave oven (microwave, small fan oven and grill all-in-one), also a twin ring ceramic hob, sink, fridge, toaster and kettle. Note: there is not a standard large scale oven in this accommodation.
You will be able to park on the drive (One car only) and reach the accommodation via its own dedicated door. Enter 35 The Ropery, Whitby North Yorkshire on your Sat Nav to arrive at our driveway entrance.
Whitby is the place where James Cooks ships were built, ie the Endeavour, the Discovrey and the Resolution (see gallery 'View from front windows you will see the original shipyard now a car park'), This is where Bram Stoker had his inspiration for his novel 'Dracula' and the dates for Easter were settled at Whitby Abbey.
There are lots of tangible remains of these facts still in Whitby, a town that has changed little for hundreds of years.
Robin Hoods Bay is a short drive and/or a more liesurely bus ride away (given the parking problems there). Or for the more active walker the next call on the well known 'Cleveland Way'.
The accommodation is a Non Smoking venue and definitely 'No Candles'. Sadly we do not allow pets.

Beautiful, clean home with everything you need. Sybil was there to greet us and show us around. Gorgeous location with fantastic views! Whitby has lots to offer - terrific walks along the sea and lots of shopping. We even found a restaurant that catered to my daughter's food allergies - Magpie has a wonderful gluten-free menu. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hopefully, we will return in the near future.
Tom and Sybil's apartment was wonderful to stay in. A beautiful apartment, well situated, and they were perfect hosts!
Just returned from a lovely week in Whitby made even more special by staying at Due South. It's a lovely light and airy loft apartment with fantastic views and everything you could possibly need along with other thoughtful touches like milk,tea and coffee on arrival. It makes such a difference. Great location too. Tom and Sybil were lovely hosts. Very personable and accommodating. We would definitely book here again and will be recommending it to friends and family.
Lovely people. Superb location with magnificent views.
A very pleasant weekend stay in Whitby. Very quiet with stunning views over the harbour and views of the steam trains leaving from the station on the other side. Excellent position as long as you do not mind climbing steps. In fact a degree of agility is required to access the property.
The best compliment I can give is that I will be booking again for next year.
We needed somewhere to stay that was our own space, where we could cook, and come and go as we pleased. Due South was perfect, comfortable and well appointed. The practicalities of getting keys etc from Tom and Sybil were easy, with good communication in advance.
Tom and Sybil have created a warm and inviting place that we looked forward to coming back to at the end of some very busy days. Everything about the apartment is well thought out with quality and comfort and spotlessly clean. It is close to the church and abbey with shops, pubs and restaurants all very close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
We had a fantastic time at Tom & Sybil's attic apartment. They were friendly, helpful hosts & have a lovely, homely apartment. It is very well equipped - although we only stayed 2 nights we could easily have stayed longer. And it is impeccably clean. The small balcony has a lovely view, although it was a bit too chilly to sit out there sadly!
The apartment is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the town centre & to the Abbey (without having to walk the 199 steps). There are lots of restaurants just a few minutes walk away - we had great seafood at Green's.
We would definitely stay at Tom & Sybil's again if we go back to Whitby.
Tom and Sybil are the perfect hosts - friendly and welcoming but unobtrusive. They have a lovely home in Whitby which is perfectly situated for the town and all it's attractions. The apartment is cosy and comfortable, well equipped with fabulous views. I would whole-hearted recommend them and their lovely home to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful part of the country. Thank you Tom and Sybil - it was loevly to meet you.
An excellent experience and one I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Whitby. The Attic is more spacious than one might think, exceptionally clean, includes any amenity that you could ask for and is as beautiful as the pictures show. Tom and Sybil seem a lovely couple and once we had been showed around were happy to leave us to it whilst being available should we need it. The location is excellent as well being a short walk from the town and giving an easy route to the Abbey. We would certainly stay there again!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
