About this listing
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.
Wifi is free with unlimited availability after signing our internet access terms & conditions.
The accommodation is all electric including the heating.
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.
Due South has its own front door, key on arrival.
