You’d be hard pressed to find a better seaside cottage in Whitby. Tipple Cottage is a superbly restored two-bed cottage with enviable sea views and close to Whitby Abbey Steps.

Without doubt, Tipple Cottage is one of Whitby’s most interesting properties. It has been beautifully restored to luxurious standards but beware – it’s called Tipple Cottage for a reason! The 200-year-old cottage has sloping windows caused by slippage a century ago and typically steep, winding staircases. If you’re after creature comforts and original features, you’ll get it in spadefuls here.

There are uninterrupted seascapes from most rooms - from the attic twin to the cosy ground floor lounge diner, with its log-burning stove for extra comfort in the winter months. The master double bedroom has an en suite and, along with the fresh family bathroom as well as the downstairs cloakroom, makes the cottage ideal for two couples or a family of four.

We particularly love the neat galley kitchen and the fact you can kick off your sandy shoes in the porch. Plus there's free Wi-Fi, a southeast-facing rear patio and seating area. When you want the finest smoked kippers or bacon for breakfast, you only have to stroll a few doors down to the famous Fortune's Smokehouse!

On top of all this, there’s an allocated parking space outside. In fact, everything about Tipple Cottage will make you wish it were your forever home.

The Local Area

Park your car in the adjacent space and leave it fee free for the week. Whitby’s gems - Fortune’s Kippers and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum – can be discovered on foot. You'll overlook the harbour lighthouses towards the West Cliffe, and be a stone’s throw from Whitby Abbey. This row of cottages was probably known to Bram Stoker when he wrote Dracula! Walk to cafes, bakeries and newsagents or drive to the supermarket near the station for groceries.

Mrs B, Dorking.

Wonderful stay as always, changeable weather but we had a wonderful stay. Whitby is as ever, a complete change and watching the sea come and go is great. Tipple Cottage is a delight, very well kept and tastefully decorated.

Mr & Mrs K, Edinburgh

Despite the changeable weather we have enjoyed Tipple Cottage - especially the views and ambience of Whitby. We have been coming to this corner of Yorkshire for decades so see many changes. Well done to Billy and Andy for their hard work to get the wifi up and running - especially Billy, such patience! The cottage has all we could ask for and has been well thought through. We are sure that many other will have many lovely memories.

Mr & Mrs H, Sheffield.

A wonderful cottage to spend our 55th Wedding Anniversary plus a full quota of sunny days to make everything perfect. A great place for walking the coastal paths. Meals at Trenchers and the new Albert's - really good. Tipple Cottage has to be one of those few places on the 'do it again' list. Many thanks.
