This is a really lovely place to stay & very centrally located within Whitby! We had kippers for breakfast & we're just minutes from the Abbey. & town. Despite not being able to get directly to the house, it's not too much of a walk from car parks in the town (even with children!)
Beautiful cottage in a great part of Whitby. Ideal for all parts of the town and harbour/beach. Just a few doors down from Fortunes smokery, so perfect for smoked salmon and scrambled egg breakfasts!
Communication was quick and supportive.
This was our second visit to Henrietta St and we were just as pleased as with the first. The street is just below the Abbey steps and a minute's walk to the town. We were there during (and because of!) the Goth Festival and it was a pleasure to watch well-dressed (and well-behaved) goths wandering by on their way to the harbour. The house is immaculately clean, nice and warm and very comfortable. It has pretty much everything you could need for a weekend away. We took advantage of the wifi and also watched a dvd and I read an interesting book about precious stones from Aron's collection. Aron was very patient with us at the booking stage and is always polite and helpful. The street is only wide enough to take vehicles in one direction and the nearest parking is either at the top of the 199 steps to the Abbey or back through town. So it's fine if you want to just drop stuff off at the beginning of your stay and pile it all back in the car at the end. But if you needed to be regularly in and out of a car that might be worth bearing in mind.
Henrietta St is an ideal location in the old town area of Whitby. 2 min walk to the harbour wall and beach, 1 min to old town shops and puubs and cafes, a few doors down to the steps up to the abbey and 4 doors down from a great little kipper smokery (don't worry, youu cant smell it from the cottage!) The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully furnished and had everything we could have possibly needed for our weekend. Communication with Aron was excellent, despite being abroad and when we had key crisis (of our own making) he was very helpful hooking us up with his contact in town to sort a spare despite the latish hour. Highly recommend.
Just got back from a short stay in Whitby. We had a wonderful time and the accommodation was great for our needs, especially close to the beach for my 2 year old son. House is well equipped and very comfortable.
Thanks to Aron for answering all my questions very promptly and helping to solve any child related needs!
We hope to return in the future.
