About this listing

The self catering accommodation sleeps 3. There is parking for 1 car.
Not suitable for children under 8, and anyone with mobility problems.
Due to the structure of the building the beams in the attic are low so tall people should take note.

The space

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(not standard) 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 Discovery 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 leisurely 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.

Would highly recommend Tom and Sybil's place, and would certainly stay again if visiting Whitby area again. The attic is as described and very well thought out. Immaculately clean, and well presented. Even a little balcony to sit out on a sunny day/evening. The stairs up to apartment are steep, but you are made aware of this before booking is made. Sybil was there to welcome us, and give information about apartment and area.

A first ever Airbnb stay and I'm so pleased I booked Due South. The apartment was lovely. Very clean, great views and well situated for exploring Whitby and the surrounding area. Tom & Sybil are excellent hosts, friendly, very orgainised, with good communication prior to the trip and the actual checking in/out process was straightforward. Biscuits, milk and tea bags provided for you on arrival, so thoughtful and much appreciated. Apartment is furnished with all you could need during your stay, even hot water bottles, they've thought of everything. On arrival Sybil pointed out places of interest and the route the Tour of Yorkshire was taking through Whitby, which was great to watch on the Friday of our stay. All in all, we had a fantastic trip, loved the apartment and I highly recommend a stay at Due South!

We are a group of three females who have been coming to Whitby for a number of years, staying in various accommodation. This was our first experience of airBnB and it certainly won't be our last! We loved our stay at the Old Manor House, in the guest accommodation, Due South. It was perfect for us, very quaint and comfortable with lovely views of Whitby, and was in easy walking distance of the town centre. It is a part of Whitby that we have now become familiar with and the views of the river Eske are wonderful. The roof top balcony was very pleasant. Sybil, was so welcoming, informative and helpful. Everything was as described; the property was well-equipped, everything worked, in excellent condition and meticulously clean. The stairs and occasional low ceiling/beams might be a problem for some guests but it wasn’t for us and we were made aware of these features prior to making our booking. In fact they added to the charm of the property. Having a private parking space was an added plus. We can’t praise the accommodation highly enough. We highly recommend it and would love to stay there again.

This is a beautiful space with fabulous views front and back. Spotlessly clean, everything well cared for. We thought it was brilliant. Tom and Sybil were very helpful and welcoming but not at all overbearing.

Great little flat on the top floor of an old manor house, with beautiful wooden beams throughout and fantastic views of Whitby. Just a short walk from central Whitby and a few minutes from the cathedral, a great base to explore the region.

A great base for exploring Whitby, in a wonderful location just next to the Abbey on the top of the East Cliff. Sybil met us on arrival, but other than that we came and went as we pleased - the flat has its own front door, and a nice feeling of independence. Thanks for having us to stay!
