Chapel Cottage, YO22 4DE

Church Street is arguably the most famous in Whitby and, aptly, Chapel Gate Mews has views across to the most photographed yard in Whitby, Arguments Yard, as well as the old market square. Set back from the popular thoroughfare, this holiday cottage is close to the former Methodist Chapel, Wesley Hall, on Whitby’s East Side and you have parking for two cars. So, pull into the shared drive and simply unload your bags – easy!

With it’s two bedrooms (one king and one double), we think this modern house is perfect for one or two couples. Having steps around the property, it’s not for wheelchair users though.

The living accommodation is on the first and second floors, giving you good vantage points for people-watching. To get there climb the beautiful, spiral staircase – it’s a real architectural feature – from the ground floor entrance, handy utility room and downstairs loo.

You’ll find the kitchen bright and modern with tons of storage and a dishwasher to save you another daily chore. The two bedrooms and the lounge diner are wonderfully relaxing in their coastal colours. The family bathroom’s a treat too, having both a bath and a shower.

Retreat to the secure, rear garden, which is hard landscaped and so ideal for pets. Facing east, it’s a pleasant spot for taking breakfast and contemplating the surrounding history of Whitby Abbey.
