Reserve yourself a cosy suntrap with Solar Cottage. This historic, three-bedroom mid terrace is hidden away on Whitby’s East Side, just a stone’s throw from cheerful Church Street.

It’s a superb, Grade II Listed fisherman’s cottage, dating from 1750. We love the recent renovation – it’s contemporary, pleasing on the eye, and the design has retained all the wonderful quirkiness and original features that many guests look for.

Solar Cottage is set over four floors with traditional, winding Whitby staircases. After a day on the cobble lanes or sandy beach, sink into the sofa in the ground-floor lounge. When you want to prepare food, wander down to the fantastic cellar kitchen-diner. When it’s bedtime, head to the first and second floor rooms; there’s a double room and a single on the first floor, and a twin attic room, through which you can access the cottage’s bathroom.

We think you’ll like the shared courtyard. Set out the folding table and chairs, pour yourselves a drink and picture the fishermen mending their nets here, 250 years ago.

The Local Area

The phrase ‘hidden gem’ was made for Solar Cottage. Accessible on foot from Whitby’s prime location, Church Street, you’ll be close to some of the town’s best attractions but hidden from sight when you just want to escape. There are plenty of Whitby Jet shops and the 199-steps to Whitby Abbey nearby, as well as pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and fresh seafood stops to hand. The best parking is ten minutes’ walk along Church Street.

Mrs S, Germany.

Solar cottage had been a great place - I would book it any time again. We loved the cottage, it’s well kept character along with all the comforts of the modernisation.

Mrs H, Paisley

A wonderful property in a peaceful location. Been to a number of Shoreline properties and this is a great addition.
