Tipple Cottage (SC53)
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.Add to shortlist Share
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, narrow 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.
Please note that the exact location of the property may differ slightly from the map.
The cottage was cosy and warm. Breath taking sea views, all you could ask for and more.
My wife and I stayed in Tipple Cottage and found it the most delightful rental we have ever had and the most spotlessly clean! Please pass on this 10/10 feedback to the owners and your cleaning staff, thank you. We are already planning our next stay at Tipple Cottage in the Spring of 2021.
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.
