This lovely three bedroom property in the heart of Whitby’s old town offers the best of both worlds, with modern day comforts in a historic location. Tucked just off the quaint cobbled street of Church Street, amid the hustle and bustle of the East side, this cottage has the added benefit of private parking for one car. Tate Hill beach, the famous 199 steps which lead up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey and the market place are all close by. Staying here you will have everything you need on your doorstep, with an abundance of bistros, cafes, galleries and quirky gift shops to choose from. Pop along to Abbey Wharf for drinks with views over harbour or mix with the locals in the traditional pubs like The Board Inn & the Duke of York. Then pick up some fish and chips from one of the local fish restaurants before retreating back to Chapel Gate Cottage to enjoy some home comforts and quality furnishings. This classy property has been completely refurbished to a high standard throughout and offers all modern day comforts over 3 floors. The kitchen boasts quality appliances and the living areas feature solid oak furniture and cosy furnishings. The handcrafted spiral staircase creates a real feature in the property and the box window in the lounge offers fantastic views over Church Street so that you can sit and watch the world go by.

Lovely cottage in super location in Whitby.
We have stayed in this cottage several times and we love it. Parking space a real asset
Hi, we were very, very happy with our cottage in Whitby. The quality was of a more than 'excellent' standard. We loved the place, in Church Street with parking next to the Whitby Jet Museum. The noise level was perfect despite being in a main road and we loved 'people watching' from the cottage. We loved just being minutes from the Abbey, which is one reason we chose the cottage. Would we book again or recommend. Yes, 100%. Thank you for a lovely cottage in a lovely location and we now have many happy memories of our holiday.
Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops. There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms.
The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.
There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year.
