One of Whitby’s most prestigious locations! A historic, dog friendly and lovingly restored cottage sleeping 2/3 (and space for extra beds), in a sunny fisherman’s yard stashed secretly off the tourist trail.

Remove from shortlist Share


Reserve your spot in the sun in one of Whitby’s most romantic yards. This is such a rare find for a holiday hideaway and part of a collection of historic fishermen’s cottages accessed by foot just off Whitby’s tourist-loving Church Street. It’s like stepping into a peaceful dreamworld and little wonder why Lewis Carroll loved Whitby so.

Solar is Grade II Listed and dates from 1750. The renovation is sublime: whilst it’s contemporary, the design retains all the wonderful quirks and features.

It’s set over four floors with traditional, steep winding staircases between them. Sink into the sofa in the ground-floor lounge and for cosy nights in. Wander down to the fantastic cellar kitchen-diner to prepare food in the traditional range cooker. When it’s bedtime, head to the first-floor double and single bedroom. The attic bathroom has a bath with a shower over and further beds up here (additional charge) should you need to accommodate extra guests.

A star attraction is the shared courtyard, isolated from traffic and popular streets nearby. Set out the folding table and chairs, pour yourselves a drink and picture the fishermen mending their nets here over 250 years ago.

The Local Area

The phrase ‘hidden gem’ was made for Solar Cottage. You’ll be close to the town’s best attractions but hidden from sight, sound and traffic when you want to escape. Park in Church Street’s car parks or a pre-bookable Shoreline bay. Solar Cottage’s beautiful yard is home to a superb artisan pottery, it’s the birthplace of 19th century novelist Mary Linskill, plus you’ll have secret path access to St Mary’s Church and Whitby Abbey!

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.
