The Space
Upon entering Hoggarths Retreat, you’ll be wowed by the modern and bright feel which flows throughout the property. You’ll notice the impeccable interiors as soon as you step into the hallway as you’re welcomed by quirky patterned flooring and clean, minimalist walls.

Take the first door to the right and you’ll find the living area. This is the perfect place to enjoy quality time with friends and family. Relax on the large, corner sofa and switch on the flat screen TV to enjoy the perks of NOW TV.

Light floods in from the glass double doors at the other end of the room and the glass roof above. Here, you’ll find the open plan kitchen and dining area. This modern space is homely and stylish. The glossy kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, hob, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine – so you’ll have everything you could need for your stay.

The large dining table is perfect for family breakfasts and evening meals with friends. In the summer, you can open the doors and let the warm breeze in. In the winter months, you’ll feel cosy and warm as the dark nights draw closer. Outside you'll find an enclosed, paved area.

Head back to the hallway and you’ll find a modern downstairs cloakroom under the stairs.

Upstairs on the first floor, you’ll be greeted by two beautifully furnished bedrooms and the main bathroom.

The first bedroom is a stylish haven with large glass doors showcasing rural views. There is a rusty orange colour scheme which is complemented perfectly with the copper bedside tables and lamps.

The second bedroom has rustic features whilst still keeping the same stunning aesthetic as the rest of the house. Striking smoked glass lamps sit either side of the comfy bed. Unique artwork, premium bed linen and plush cushions help to make this room feel relaxing and warm. This room also boasts a modern en-suite bathroom which includes a large, walk in shower.

The main bathroom has a seriously stylish feel. It features a striking free-standing bath and luxurious textured tiles.

Upstairs on the second floor, you’ll find two more bedrooms. The first bedroom at the top of the stairs has double doors which open to reveal amazing rural views. It has a huge, comfortable bed and a desk area. You’ll also find an en-suite which has a bath and overhead shower.

The last bedroom has a green colour scheme which creates a truly tranquil space. It is complemented perfectly with matt black accessories, abstract artwork and a wicker light. It also features an en-suite with a large walk in shower.

Located in Spital Bridge in Whitby, Hoggarths Retreat is less than a 10-minute walk to the town centre. There you’ll find narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and fish restaurants. You can climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

On the other side of the River Esk, you’ll come across cosy pubs, fun arcades and even more fish restaurants on Pier Road. Venture along the lively road and you’ll reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Getting Around
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from Hoggarths Retreat.

Whitby train station is less than 15-minutes away on foot so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

The house was in perfect location,not too far from the centre so nice and quiet.
Spacious for 7 people & 1 dog. Well equipped kitchen. Beds were comfortable & very clean.
Only a couple of things really. Missing a bread knife. Could do with a lick of paint in some rooms. The taps are very unstable in the top floor room with the free standing bath.



beautiful house, location perfect, parking a bonus.. lovely property. Will definitely stay here again.
struggling for negative points tbh! a lick of paint in places possibly.



Thanks for a lovely stay. This is our second time here and think that the location is ideal for Whitby and the surrounding area. Great views out the back bedrooms. The beds are very comfortable and it’s great to have your own bathrooms.



Newly built property ideal for a group of friends or extended family visit. Well equipped, modern kitchen and nice open-plan living area. Beds are huge and comfortable, each bedroom has their own bathroom. The whole place was very clean. Good location just 10 minutes walk to the swing bridge in town centre. Great that we could bring our dog along.
Large stains on the lounge area carpet are very noticeable and should be cleaned or carpet replaced. Not a good first impression! There are no drawers or wardrobes in bedrooms. Big bath looks nice but had no plug and the lack of a shower screen makes hard to avoid getting a wet floor. Outside space is limited. Only one parking space (we had 3 cars and found parking up the steep side road, about half a mile away). Not really enough seating for 8 adults in the lounge area, better for up to 6 max. Could have done with extra tea towels and a hand towel in the kitchen.



Breakfast not applicable. Great Location.
Would have preferred a shower to the free standing bath in one bedroom



It is a lovely property, very well maintained and presented which met all the needs of three couples who stayed there for three nights. We would have no hesitation in recommending it for a visit to Whitby.



great location, grateful for the parking spot!
upon entering it stunk! smelt like dogs and was stuffy. needed a good airing and a clean!
couldn’t believe there were breadcrumbs on the floor in the kitchen, on the table and in the cutlery drawer! cutlery was dirty, lipstick marks around one of the glasses and one of the cups, cooked in cheese on the edge of one of the pots.
we had to start our vacation, which was to celebrate my dads 70th birthday, by cleaning the whole house! was appalled by the colour of the water after mopping the kitchen and hall way floor - it was worse than the colour of pond water!
stains on the carpet in the lounge and the cushions smelt of dog!



The accommodation was lovely, spacious and clean. It is situated close to everything that you would want to see in Whitby. Guide was easy to follow and all instructions given were clear and also easy to follow.
The only downside was the parking as you could only have one car but the accommodation can have 8 people stay. That said wasn't too far for 24hr parking.



Excellent location, good value
Not enough space for clothes



Thank you for a lovely weekend away. House was lovely, had all facilities we needed. Great location, just a nice distance from the local amenities and sights. Beautiful town and views






clean, tidy and excellent location
nothing it was lovely



the location of Hoggarths Retreat was superb! It was very clean and was perfect for our group/family of 6 Adults
the only thing which was uncomfortable for our group was no clothes rail in 2 rooms and bedside tables with draws would have been easier, as some of us had to live out of a suitcase

Excellent property, great location and ideal for our needs.
As seems to be the usual case there are insufficient comfy seats for the number of guests the property can accommodate. Fortunately there were only 6 of us and we struggled to fit comfortably on the sofa. Not sure where the other 2 guests could have sat.
We had to ask for wine glasses and saucepans, which was a little disappointing as this should gave been checked before our arrival. They were provided very promptly the following day.



comfortable and spacious layout in a convenient location
limited parking



Great location and fantastic house. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Whitby.



Need more towels, glasses, walls need repainting



Few little issues



Lovely house in a great location.



Great location! We would definitely stay again



great location and a really lovely property!
furnished nicely and ideal for our family break. the en-suites were just so useful.
clean and well equipped it showed no sign of being used extensively by other visitors.
also useful was the abbey car park up the hill for the other cars in our family party.

car park was slightly tight for my Land Rover but not a huge issue.






The location was very good. 5min walk to centre. Lovely Fish and Chip shop just down the road.

It could have been a lot cleaner.
Maybe Housekeeping need to be spot checked.
Fridge not cleaned. Dried milk on shelf.
Freezer to frozen to use.
Hoover needed cleaning. Smell wasn't good.
All carpets needed a good hoover. Downstairs carpet needed a clean.
Shower on 1st floor the pipe was split so unusable.
All the lamps needed dusting.



The space and standard of furnishings were excellent. We travelled with 2 other couples. The open plan living and kitchen area were ideal. The bedroom and bathrooms all spacious , clean and modern. We would all recommend the property.
There wasn't anything we didn't like about the property or location.



Fantastic location just a short walk into Whitby. Quiet area and the house was perfect for our stay

A Holiday Lettings verified reviewer


Excellent location with all shops pubs and restaurants all within a short walk. Easy to access the costal paths. House was nice but a little under equipped - it needs more cutlery and utensils. The baking trays were all dirty. More cups needed when there’s 8 people. Fairly clean throughout so just a little short of being a fantastic property. Parking was a slight issue when the town is busy as only one allocated space at the property.



Fantastic location, very clean, comfortable, plenty of space for 8 of us. Great bathrooms. Small outdoor seating area with nice garden furniture.
The ladies in the group would have appreciated more clothes hanging spaces, not really anywhere to hang our ‘going out’ clothes in the bedrooms except in the main bedroom on the top floor.



Clean other than stated. Good location. Kitchen well equipped with a big dining area.
Stains on carpets. Dirty pillowcase. No hanging storage for clothes in some rooms. Not enough seating for 8 adults and no coffee table.



There wasn't much to dislike! House is very good, beds very comfortable, bathroom facilities great!
Great position, just a short walk into the town. We've had a lovely stay!



Really lovely place to stay, close to the Abbey, with a great kitchen and lounge area. We loved it.



Great location close to Whitby. Very nice place and good hosts. Thank-you



Our stay at Hoggarth's Retreat was exactly as described in the listing - the house is modern, clean and well equipped with lots of facilities/utensils, and in a great location. The hosts were very accommodating, and were able to provide additional items - high chairs and travel cots - on request. They were easy to contact both before arriving and when we had a question on arrival.



Lovely modern and clean house. 10 minutes walk to Whitby.



The safe box for the key was difficult



Location great, a short walk into the main area which was no problem especially as there was a pub en route (middle earth). Riverside chip shop was excellent, we had a takeaway on our first night.
The house was lovely and spacious, there were a few of us so having 4 bathrooms was great including a downstairs toilet. Managed to squeeze 2 cars (one was small) in the allocated space as it was right outside the house so not blocking anyone. Paid parking available on the street.
The team were very responsive to questions beforehand and gave clear instructions about arrival and departure.
We would definitely stay here again.
Nothing really, there were a couple of issues with the cleaning which we picked up with the team who were very responsive.



Brilliant location and lots of essentials at the property
Lack of window dressings, we were awake at 4am most mornings because it was so bright






Nice clean & airy accommodation, liked the rooms with Juliette balconies to let the sun & fresh air in. Kitchen well equipped and good sized table for a group to sit at. Location great for walking in to Whitby, 10 mins max to old town.
No negatives, all as booked & expected.



Lovely property, very modern & spacious & an excellent base for exploring the area.
Car parking was extremely tight.

Had a great week here
First holiday in ages due to the pandemic
Nice walk to Whitby town and lots of good takeaways that deliver
Great en-suite showers in every room



A lovely place to stay and the short walk to the Hub of Whitby is along the river/ harbour making it very pleasant.



Beautiful house in immaculate condition,would happily stay there again.






Lovely trip in a fantastic cottage. Local to the centre of Whitby and all the wonderful restaurants, bars and shops it has to offer.

Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Whitby.



Amazing location and beautiful home. Really nice interior and lots of space. We loved our stay at Hoggarths Retreat and would definitely return.
It was very clean with lots of nice touches like coffee pods, tea bags and dishwasher tabs etc.



We loved our stay at Hogarths retreat. The location is great. Only a 10 minute walk into Whitby. Super clean and the house had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.



Good points; House spotlessly clean. Beds are lovely and comfy, bathrooms are beautiful and well equipped. House is in a great location, few minutes walk to centre of Whitby. Great pubs/restaurants in Whitby, The Starr Inn Harbour, Abbey Wharf and Horse and Griffin, ate in them all lovely, nice cafe / bistro think it was called Sanders Yard ate there twice and it was lovely/Bad points, No frying pan ( couldnt do fried eggs ) only 2 other pans.Living area would be a bit small if there were 8 people in the house, there were only 4 of us so it was fine.






Just lovely clean and quiet



Loved everything about this property. the house was spotless. We have never stayed in a property that we have had to put all of our cleaning materials back into the car as everything was supplied. The beds were so comfortable it was a challenge to rise and explore.
Could have known before to take towels for downstairs toilet and kitchen as not supplied. Saucepans were a challenge as we cooked in on an evening. Very small for a party of four and had to purchase some larger ones. Easily remedied . Will take our own on our next visit.



Would highly recommend a stay here, fabulous house in a great location. Communication has been excellent throughout. We look forward to returning for another stay.



The house and the rooms were fantastic, the location was spot on, we had such a great time, we managed to get both cars parked outside the property as well which was very good, I think it was slightly more expensive that some other properties in a similar bracket but all in all was perfect.
There wasn't much space in the rooms to hang clothes and put clothes away so spent much of the time living out of a suitcase. That was the only downside to this stay so please don't let this put you off!



Having enough kitchen and dining items to cater for the eight people the house is intended for would have made the stay exceptional.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and wished we had booked for longer.The location is perfect, just a short stroll alongside the Marina and you're onto the swing bridge and in the heart of Whitby.The accomodation was everything we could have wished for, lots of space, clean, modern and well designed.



Location very good. Breakfast N/A.



The furnishings, the extra large beds. The great location was perfect within a short stroll in the main area of Whitby. This was great for teenagers in our party as they could do their own thing. The showers in all rooms were always hot and powerful which is a bonus when 7 of you getting ready on a morning. The handy parking space right outside the property. We had 2 cars in our party, for the other car I booked a space just up the road at Sainsburys via
Your parking space app was only £6 for our 3 night stay, hassle free and the other party dropped us there as only 3 minutes by car from the property or a 15/20 min walk saved searching for a space in August in the car parks in Whitby town.
Disappointed don't feel the cleaning was exceptional in current climate. Dust on the splashback in kitchen, spillage marks over the lounge radiator, furniture just hovered around not moved. Kitchen well equipped but no oven gloves so suffered a few burns trying to use the tea towel to remove items from oven.
The backyard needed a tidy up weeds removing and a clean up of the patio slabs to remove green mould.



Location was spot on. Not far to walk to the centre of whitby. Unless you want to venture further out you can leave your car.
Breakfast would have been easier with a frying pan and there were no tea towels.






Excellent. Stylish house with lots of space and very centrally located to Whitby’s main town. Each room was superbly designed and had its own bathroom making it feel very private in a group house.
Really enjoyed our stay! Thank you



Fantastic location, beautifully spotless and all the mod cons. Would strongly recommend Hoggarts to anyone looking for high quality accommodation in Whitby!



We were amazed at the quality and cleanliness of this 3 storey, pet friendly house. The bathrooms were superb and the beds were large and very comfy. It is situated a 10 minute flat walk out of the main tourist area, which is difficult thing to find in Whitby. Happy to recommend this fledgling (we assume) accommodation but do have some constructive comments to share:1) No need for the cloak and dagger parking instructions about having to call on arrival. Just tell us to park in the space outside of the house window. After a long journey, the last thing people want is to stress about whether they need to find and pay for public parking. 2) Dress up the back yard a bit. Nobody will sit out there in its current state. 3) Put a frying pan in the kitchen. 4) Charging a £75 cleaning fee, then asking people to clean down worktops and remove and bag all bedding and rubbish, prior to checkout Is not acceptable. We wouldn’t dream of leaving the house in a poor state but doing the cleaner’s job and paying for the privilege doesn’t sit right. None of these requests were in the booking terms and conditions. We don’t want to put a bad slight on the house, as we think it’s a lovely place to stay but it has a few managerial issues that could easily be solved.



Lovely rooms and spotless, which is unusual for a dog friendly house. Not too far out of the main tourist area. Good wifi throughout the 3 storeys. Close to good chippy (Riverside fisheries).
Back yard was poor but wouldn’t have sat out there anyway. Bit awkward to park with a large car and cloak and dagger parking instructions seemed unnecessary. Just need to tell us to park next to front window, instead of having to call on arrival. Would have been useful to have a frying pan too.



Good location and property with a few snags such as limited or no storage in the bedrooms.






excellent house and location for central Whitby



Everything this place is beautiful
Would have been nice to have more than 1 key for 8 people and maybe so.e small draws in the bedrooms



Excellent location and a lovely house



Extra bathrooms. Cleanliness
No televisions in the rooms. No tea towels. Sour smell and freezing cold on arrival.



Communication from the outset was outstanding. Really pleased with the location and presentation of the property. We had a cracking time in Whitby as a result.



4 couples stayed here for 3 nights. Beautiful, large, clean house with everything you need. Short walk in to whitby. Would recommend and stay here again.



Everything spotless,beds very comfy,all bedrooms en suite,quiet location but near enough to all what Whitby has to offer.Pubs 5 mins walk,very good fish and chip shop 2 mins walk
Limited parking if you all travel separately and very little outside space



Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely rebook



The house was absolutely wonderful and perfect for our few days away. Everything was really clean and the house was very well equipped. The rooms were excellent sizes and it was very well furnished. The hosts were really quick to respond to our messages and resolve any issues.
I honestly can't think of anything - it was perfect.



The house was absolutely perfect for our new year's break. It was a short walk into Whitby town centre along the marina, which was really nice at the beginning and end of the day. The rooms were well sized and very well decorated and the house was very clean and really well equipped. It was great to find somewhere so nice that would let us take our dogs. The hosts were great and responded to all messages really promptly. Would definitely stay there again.



This was a Gem of a place, we are super lucky to have had stayed here. Staff where excellent and responsive, and the quality of accommodation was outstanding. Will definitely be recommending and staying again
