Don’t let the quaint, whitewashed cottage appearance of Scoresby House fool you, this is a tardis ready to provide everything a family of six needs on a Whitby holiday.

Step straight into the ground floor lounge and you’re following in the footsteps of Arctic Explorer Captain William Scoresby, who acquired the house in the 1800s. Such an historic home on Whitby’s older East Side boasts a prime setting, with uninterrupted marina views from the upper floors.

There are steps throughout this higgledy-piggledy house, which has an immaculate use of space and features. Discover three bedrooms – one with king size bed, a twin and a master with super king size bed and en suite shower room. The attractive kitchen diner has space for everyone and leads to the secluded secret garden, tucked away for sitting out and barbecuing, quite a rarity in central Whitby.

We love the New England style of the mid-level snug that comes with free Wi-Fi and Freeview channels. No one’s caught short as there’s a separate cloakroom and family bathroom too. In fact, there’s nothing lacking throughout. Scoresby House is where history meets modern living and best of all – your dog can come too.
