Misty cottage is the perfect escape by the sea, ideal for a family or friends get-together! With distant sea views and just moments walk from the beach it is a wonderful retreat on North Yorkshire’s dramatic coastline.

Set over three floors with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, a comfy sitting room and a large kitchen and dining space there’s plenty of room for friends and family to enjoy and spend time together. Situated in the historic fishing town of Whitby and ideally placed to discover all that the spectacular North Yorkshire coast has to offer.

Living Space

Set on the first floor with distant views out towards the sea, the sitting room has been stylishly furnished with plenty of space to relax and catch up on the day’s adventures. Interesting nautical artefacts make good talking points and there’s a Smart T.V. too for movie nights by the fire on chilly evenings.

Kitchen & Dining

Set on the lower ground floor the open plan kitchen and dining area is spacious and welcoming with everything you need for cooking up a treat and gathering around the 10 seater dining table. On warm evenings open up the doors to the garden and let the sunshine in!

Kitchen is fitted with dishwasher, oven, grill, microwave and coffee machine (why not take your morning coffee for a walk along the beach!).

On the first floor there is a utility area with washer and dryer.

Garden & Terrace

The gardens are to the front and side with seating areas to enjoy the sunshine and soak up the sea air. At the rear, accessed from the ground and first floors is a spacious courtyard with seating and a BBQ to enjoy al fresco dining.


Whitby with all its rich history and intrigue is a short walk form the cottage, with everything you could need for a perfect stay by the coast. On the East Cliff, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum, in the house where Cook once lived, displays paintings and maps. West of town is West Cliff Beach, lined with beach huts and the giant whale bone arch is not to be missed.

Of course Whitby is also famous for excellent fish and chips, fresh from the sea, what could be better!

Probably the most visited and much-loved of Yorkshire’s seaside resorts, Whitby is an idyllic location for a holiday. With its seaside heritage, excellent restaurants, independent shops and host of bars and cafes along its medieval streets, it has so much to offer the discerning holidaymaker.

Whitby’s narrow twisting yards evolved over a thousand years ago to provide protection from Viking raiders, and to help Whitby’s smugglers avoid the tax collectors. Straddling the River Esk and dominated by the 13th century ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey high on the East Cliff dominates the skyline, providing the backdrop for some of Lewis Carroll’s work, it was also famously the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Spreading below, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets running down to the busy quayside and picturesque harbour which have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

Totally enjoyed Misty Cottage. We all thought it was a beautiful house with well thought out quality furnishings. So cleverly designed to max out the space, it felt big and luxurious!! We didn’t make use of the outside space as it was a blustery weekend before Christmas, but it looked a lovely space to relax in, and totally enclosed and private. The house was lovely and warm and decorated beautifully for Christmas – we felt like it was Christmas Day each day!! The house is so handily located, on the edge of Whitby so parking was easy with 3 cars, and it was an easy stretch your legs walk along the shoreline pedestrian walkway into Whitby town.
Just a short drive to Sandsend or Runswick Bay up the coast, or inland to Grosmont for the steam train. Dinner at the Fisherman’s Wife Cafe was great and then we got lucky with the farmers Christmas lit up tractor Santa run!
Christmas CDs were handy for afternoon down time for great-grandma in her 80’s, and monopoly & scrabble were good evening entertainment once the kids were in bed for us.
Thanks for a wonderful stay, can’t think of any negatives, everything was spot on. Fantastic weekend of fun and laughter in the best ‘Christmas House’.
Best wishes

We were on the beach within 2 minutes which is dog friendly with some seasonal restrictions, the location was so perfect we nearly wore our dogs out!

Delighted when we found Misty Cottage, it was perfect for our big family holiday – 6 adults and 4 children aged 2-7 years. We felt comfortable and relaxed as soon as we entered. All little extras were much appreciated. We highly recommend to everyone, the location was perfect for a great family time away.

Absolutely beautiful property; we stayed for my mums 60th and she was delighted with the accommodation. Sparkling clean, lovely decor and plenty of space for 10 adults! Very close to the beach which was great for walks into Whitby. Would recommend and certainly want to go back! Katy, February 2020

The Cottage really is beautiful, tastefully decorated and in a great location. It has 5 bedrooms with 3 of them en-suite. It Is so well equipped, everything has been thought of. There is nice welcoming pub just across the road and the cottage is a lovely 15-20 minute walk into Whitby along the cliff top. Perfect for large groups and families and is also pet friendly. I would definitely recommend and return. Nicola and family July 2020
