Property information

This charming coastal cottage sits perfectly in the heart of Whitby, just a few steps from the famous Flowergate and a short walk to the harbour. This two bedroom cottage sleeps four guests and welcomes one well behaved dog. Enjoy everything Whitby has to offer then retreat back to this beautiful, cosy bolthole by the sea. Amber Cottage is located next door to Jet Cottage, another charming holiday home. If you are looking for accommodation for a larger group, the two properties together accommodate 8 guests. As of September 2022, Amber Cottage is under new ownership. A number of improvements have been made to the property since then, including the installation of a new shower and super-fast WiFi. Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during guest bookings. For this reason, we require all our guests to transfer a Damage Deposit (refundable, subject to an administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver which will cover you for up to 500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.

Neighbourhood information

Amber Cottage is located just off the iconic Flowergate, in the centre of Whitby. You will find the flurry of shops, restaurants and bars just a few steps from the front door. The Blue Flag West Cliff beach and promenade is just a 5-minute walk from the cottage. The famous Trenchers is nearby where you can try traditional Whitby fish and chips! On Pier Road, you’ll find nostalgic arcades which are fun for all ages.. The opposite side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques and pubs. Sample the catch of the day in one of the fish restaurants or visit one of the traditional sweet shops for all your candy needs. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary and the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’. Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks and fresh countryside air.
