Old Curiosity Shop (SC73)
They say curiosity is one of the great secrets of happiness and this renovated cottage for two offers plenty of intrigue. The former shell and fossil shop is located on historic Cliff Street - making the location spot on!Add to shortlist Share
Discover what’s behind the shop front façade of this beautifully renovated Grade II listed building. Old Curiosity Shop dates back to 1654 and was once an emporium selling ammonite brooches, jet and fine antique china to the pleasure seekers of Victorian Whitby. Today the three-storey holiday cottage is one of the finest on the West Side offering contemporary living for couples.
Enter straight into the spacious kitchen and you’ll be drawn to the Yorkshire cast iron open range. We love the well-thought-out Shaker styling that provides ample food prep and dining space, a washer /dryer and dishwasher – everything to make your life easy.
Climb the stairs to the lounge to catch a glimpse of the sea and views across to Whitby Abbey from all floor levels. It’s a relaxing lounge with a large comfy sofa, Freeview SKY TV, free WiFi and another period fireplace - although the modern central heating will keep you cosy! You'll also find a small bathroom on this floor.
The second floor bedroom is up the winding staircase. There’s a double bed and space for a cot or z-bed. The generous en suite has a bath big enough for two as well as a shower attachment. If you’re looking for a romantic, pet-friendly cottage in Whitby this should pique your interest.

Fabulously located and well appointed cottage. Short stroll to the front and all the shops. Spotlessly clean. Everything you require is in the cottage. Special shout for the huge bath, easily fits two. Will definitely return.
A lovely place to stay, so close to the front. The cottage feels very homely. Our best holiday yet, as we got Engaged ! The bath was one of my favourite parts !
Lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and in a perfect location. Loved our trip, a perfect getaway with our dog. We will be back!
