Property Highlight #3

In the Centre of Whitby

Burns Yard is located in the heart of Whitby off Flowergate - the oldest and most iconic area of the town.

The Space
Burns Yard has style and class in abundance. This quirky holiday home is based across three floors and you’ll be wowed by the modern interiors. As you walk into the hallway, head straight up the stairs and you’ll find the bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.

The bedroom is a clean and bright space featuring a large, extravagant bed and contemporary lights which hang above marble bedside tables. Dark wooden beams contrast perfectly with the white walls and grey colour scheme. A floor length gold mirror and blue suede chair complete the room and add even more glamour.

In the bathroom you’ll find grey patterned tiles and sleek silver hardware. The room features a spacious walk in shower and a white, gloss vanity cabinet.

Head up the stairs again to the second floor and you’ll discover the open plan kitchen and living area. Wow! With sloping ceilings and breath-taking views of Whitby and the Abbey, this space is very impressive.

The dark blue kitchen creates a cosy feel which contrasts beautifully with the clean, white walls. You’ll have everything you need for your stay as the kitchen is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge and dishwasher.

Take a seat on a vintage style, wooden stool and relax with a drink as you gaze at the views from the windows. Relax on the eclectic, velvet sofa with a book or switch on the flat screen TV to catch up on your favourite shows. Enjoy meals at the marble dining table – whether it’s breakfast after a lazy morning or an evening dinner with your loved one. You can open up the window completely and let the heat drift in during the summer months.

Burns Yard is located in the iconic Flowergate – one of the oldest and most historic streets in Whitby. You’ll find cosy cafes, restaurants and shops lining the street, so the apartment is ideally located.

The Blue Flag West Cliff beach and promenade is just a short 5-minute walk from the property. On Pier Road, you’ll find fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants where you can sample the catch of the day.

The other side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques and pubs. 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’.

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.

Getting Around
Burns Yard is located in the centre of Whitby so the town can easily be explored on foot.

Whitby train station is just a short 5-minute walk away 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.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby. Hop on the X4 and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The X93 travels along the coast to Scarborough. The 95 route features plenty of quaint villages, such as Grosmont and Lealholm.

Morden, clean apartment with fabulous views. loved the bi-fold window , views were amazing from here.
Entrance to property was very unkept with lots of rubbish on the floor . There was 4 green bins for garden and food waste but nowhere to recycle cardboard or plastic so people had just place their rubbish next to the green bins.

We enjoyed our two night stay- fab location. A bit disappointed to arrive to a full dirty dishwasher and dirty toilet. A pint of milk would have been appreciated after a long journey. That said the apartment was well equipped and delightful views.









What a great place to stay views from the windows amazing very clean and has everything you need



Great central location for visiting Whitby. Apartment as described / pictures with great view from top window.



a lovely little apartment in a central location, has a fabulous view of whitby from the bi-folding windows.

be mindful of the stairs as they are tight and steep and the bed is snug!

managed to get parked within 5 minute walk using the parking permits.

would recommend



Spotless, lovely, cosy modern apartment with original character features. Well appointed and with a well-equipped kitchen - perfect for self-catering. Cosy, spacious bedroom and spacious showroom. Great, central location with fabulous views over the town towards the Abbey and the sea. Easy access to the harbour area, with plentiful pubs and restaurants, the beaches and historic Whitby. Nearby loading bay proximity was useful. Overall a great stay!



Amazing place to visit, if you’re going to Whitby I’d suggest this place, 10/10



Excellent for a short break - great location and we loved the property itself. Clean, comfortable and a lovely view across to the Abbey. Also good to have permits for nearby parking which was all very straightforward. Recommend!



Such a great apartment - will be back!






We enjoyed a lovely break at Burns Yard! The apartment was spotless, well-furnished and extremely comfortable. The best thing about this place is the incredible view from the bi-fold windows, being able to see the sea and the abbey from the living area was amazing! The location is fantastic, with lots of shops nearby and a short wander down to the sea. We really enjoyed exploring Whitby and it was brilliant having such a central location that was still really quiet and peaceful.
Host & Stay provided lots of useful information via the app which we downloaded which was great for check-in, and finding out more about recommended places nearby.

A few notes from our stay:
- There's a wonderful, quirky cafe called Jet Black Jewel just round the corner, which did an amazing brunch/lunch! We went back here twice as the staff were incredibly friendly and the food was wonderful. It also has booklets telling interesting tales about the area on each table!
- We had takeaway fish and chips one night from Trenchers which was SO good. Might be the best we've ever had! They also have a restaurant, though there are often queues outside so it's definitely popular.
- The Whitby Deli is just across the road and they sold lots of lovely local goodies. Worth popping in to grab some snacks!
- Parking was explained really clearly in the app showing a map of streets where we could park and it was useful having the parking pass provided. We arrived late evening and fortunately found a space about 5 minutes away.
- The entrance to the property is down an alleyway which is unlit, so it was difficult to find the property when we first arrived at night. Having a light here would feel much safer but we recommend having a torch handy if you're arriving in the dark.
Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend Burns Yard for a mini break :)



I loved our stay! Me, my partner and my two dogs had a lovely break and it definitely felt like a home away from home, will be returning in the future and would recommend to friends and family



great location, tasteful decor, fantastic view, nice and quiet
steep stairs which could benefit from extra banister near kitchen, difficult to unpack from car to apartment due to small space in entrance hall and stairs up to kitchen - not unusual in converted fisherman cottages though, so we understand this is unavoidable



Perfect location, beautifully designed.
The radiator in the bedroom didn’t work but there was a portable heater provided.



Nice well equipped apartment with great views over the harbour.

Had a great stay. Location was amazing, right in the centre of Whitby. Nice pub directly opposite but didn't hear any noise or disturbance. Lovely apartment although lots of stairs inside so not suitable for some people. Fabulous view from the upstairs window.



Thank you for a wonderful stay at burns yard… we will be back soon!



Lovely apartment, very close to all the amenities, would definitely stay again.



A beautiful apartment. Perfectly located. Highly recommend and would 100% return.



A great location in the centre of Whitby with parking very near to the apartment. Lovely and clean with all the facilities needed for a restful few days in a fabulous seaside location



Great location and great little flat. Will definitely be returning next time we are in Whitby!



We really enjoyed our stay here and the apartment was just perfect for our trip to Whitby! Will recommend this place to friends and family.



Really nice and cozy place to stay in the middle of Whitby. Beautiful views across rooftops and onto the Abbey



The apartment itself is very nice with all mod cons. Great that it is pet friendly.
I liked the location. There was a micro brewery/pub opposite, also a deli and green grocers shops nearby. Whitby is a delightful place.
I found unloading/parking quite difficult. I guess this is the same for anyone in Whitby but it must be particularly challenging high season.
Received far too many emails about this vacation from both Booking.com and the letting company. Overkill.



Lovely modern apartment with excellent view



Excellent just as advertised
Great touches like tea coffee salt washing up liquid in there to get you started .
The curved stairs could prove difficult for someone who is less agile or have mobility issues but the view over the town is tremendous once up there.



The property was very clean, very nicely decorated/fitted out, every thing was there that you needed, very relaxing kitchen/lounge, very quaint and a great view from the lounge
Im being very critical as on the whole the stay was great, but if i were to list a few minor downsides! very dark at night to get to the property through the alley way to the door, a small tv in the bedroom would be nice, and although the bed room was smallish (more than adequate) a slightly bigger bed would have been appreciated , but thats all






Location and superb accodamation.
No outside area .Stairs an issue if you have mobility problems tho we were aware of this before booking.Finding a parking space was not always easy. Also getting bags to apartment from car on arrival abit of a challenge.



The location was good with a superb view. The apartment was clean and well presented with good quality appliances, storage, and equipment. Particularly happy with the coffee machine and dishwasher. Good provision of washing up liquid, tablets, washing machine powder, etc. The television was a good size with good coverage of programmes. Free Wifi included and tablet to help find local things to do. Downstairs in the bathroom there was self-regulated hot water in the tap and the shower worked well. The apartment was very well situated within easy walking distance of pubs, shops, river, and coast.
The view was beautiful but the windows were a little dirty so I usually opened them to enjoy the view. The apartment was very well presented but was let down by a few small things such as poor quality and limited toilet paper, and toiletries were provided but there were only 2 small mini tubes of shower gel for 2 of us for 3 days. Scratch cards were provided for parking but available places to park nearby were very limited while we were there - we often parked in a street a little further away but where parking was free.



Nice apartment,lovely and clean with a nice comfy bed,the view was excellent.
The alley leading to the property was scruffy and nit good for first impressions,also the stairs inside the property were exceptionally steep.



The property is very modern and well decorated , the bi-fold window in the living area is a superb touch and gives a fantastic view of Whitby
The entrance doer is very fiddly but this is the nature of Whitby’s properties , age and design but only a very minor point



Very good






Lovely tastefully decorated compact apartment made extra special by the bifold window which gives spectacular views across the rooftops to the harbour and Abbey Would highly recommend
As with other review comments don’t be put off by the entrance area , the apartment itself is great but not suitable for people with mobility issues due to the steep stairs



Great location, excellent welcome instructions left by management, stylish and modern. Accepts dogs.
Entrance of property smelts of cigarettes, alley to property dirty and lots of rubbish. Parking is a nightmare but this is not a fault of the property, we were given a parking permit but there is no spaces for miles and no spaces in local car parks.



Nicely decorated apartment in lovely area close to shops, cafes and amenities.



The flat is perfectly placed between the river and Skinner Street, an easy walking distance from anything you might want to see in Whitby. It’s very comfortable - a nice place to hang out if the weather turns bad - and the view over the harbour and across to the cathedral is spectacular. We were there for the Regatta fireworks, which we watched through the open window, and it was like they were being put on especially for us.
There are three flights of steep stairs so, if mobility is an issue, that might not work for you. It was also quite pricey but we were there for Regatta weekend, which might have put the prices up. It was certainly busy in town the whole time we were there and I think most places were booked up.



Good place for a base. Very clean and stylish.



It was a beautiful space & made us feel right at home.
Despite an unfortunate situation where the shower broke down, the team were so super quick & helpful (even on a Sunday when we thought we would be completely unseen to) and any issues where rectified so quickly, it really put us at ease to know we were properly looked after whilst staying here! 100% would recommend to everyone



The photos don’t do it justice. View from the lounge over the ruins & harbour were exceptional. Bed very comfy and stylishly decorated. We would definitely return.
Stairs very steep so may not suit older guests.






Location was great and the apartment was perfect for what we wanted, beautifully decorated and presented. We would definitely stay there again.
The residents / neighbours were extremely rude and although the communication from the host was clear and helpful, there was probably a little too much.



Booked for my parents who had a lovely stay and were very impressed with layout, location and facilities.



Lovely little apartment, amazing location. Everything we needed for a short break. Would definitely stay again



Great, clean and modern apartment in a central but quiet location.



The View
The Stairs



Very good






Absolutely beautiful apartment, clean , bright , all mod con , so comfortable, loved it
I couldn't get sky to work



Good location, good views, very comfortable bed. Stairs a bit steep and no area to remove boots, clean dogs off as stairs are carpeted.



Lovely Decor, stunning views and ideal location. Would recommend. Thank you



A very clean and well presented apartment, in a super location. Beautiful views across Whitby from the main living area, and very quiet.



Great little apartment, would come again.

wendy B.


Perfect location and very clean and stylish apartment with a fantastic view of the harbour ..












Central location and great fixtures and fittings. Loud neighbour but he stopped playing music around 10pm so didn't affect us. Lovely place to visit and we could park for free easily 5 minute walk away without any problems. Stairs were very steep for our dog, but great little flat



Perfect location perfect view perfect for two



I’m afraid we won’t be returning to this apartment, in fact we checked out a day early. This is a classic case of an apartment being used for business as it’s not set up to live in at all.

- the location is fantastic
- the views are gorgeous
- the kitchen is well equipped
- plenty of toiletries, toilet paper etc in bathroom
- shower is powerful
- the heating is really easy to use in every room

- the downstairs neighbour played loud music until at least midnight every evening and the smell of their marijuana wafted into our apartment
- the main door to the building does not have a lock (seemingly at the request of the downstairs neighbour), yet we weren’t told this until check-in info was shared and we were still given a key for it
- this wouldn’t have been so bad if the door to the actual apartment had anything more than one lock. The neighbour had people coming and going all night and we couldn’t sleep thinking our front door was being opened
- the duvet for the bed is too small and the bed is hideously in comfortable
- the bedside lights look great but are pointless as you have to switch both on, meaning if one of us wanted to stay up to read, we had to do so upstairs so as not to disturb the other person
- the layout of the lounge/kitchen is bizarre. The tv faces the stairs so you can’t see it from the sofa without rearranging furniture
- we had to create a log in for the WiFi instead of using a password
- having a sky box and smart tv but having no way to watch sky or log in to our own Netflix account was very frustrating, especially as we obviously weren’t staying our late because of curfews (it’s also the same tv we have at home so we know it’s a good one and know how to use it)

It’s very very rare that I give bad reviews on Air BnB, I’m extremely diligent in reading reviews and scoping options so this really let us down. The management company asked me if anything was wrong when I told them we were leaving early and they replied 8hrs later saying they would inform the property owner, but that doesn’t exactly help our situation. We’ve been to Whitby many times before and this was a treat to ourselves as our wedding and honeymoon were cancelled this year, to check out a day early was really heartbreaking but we knew we’d be happier going home than staying.



Fantastic place to stay. We would absolutely stay again. We have a few comments to make this place that bit more special
A light in the alley way would be safer and brighter.
Two radiators were not working, we were offered to have these fixed whilst we were there, but we didn’t need to luckily the wreathed wasn’t cold.
The taps are a bit tricky to get running hot. The key is to keep these on low pressure.

We loved this place, we would not recommend it for anyone with walking or breathing difficulties due to the amount of small steps up to the second and third floor of the appartment.



Lovely apartment with a great view over the harbour, very conveniently situated.



Excellent apartment for our stay in Whitby. Beautiful views from the upstairs window



Great Views,
There was no sky card in the Tv so couldn’t watch anything on the television. Couldn’t have a shower because the water kept going from red hot to freezing cold.



Clear communications - probably too many though. central location, outstanding fittings, but not without issues, team were responsive to the heating problem we raised.
The entrance impression on the lane is terrible, directly opposite everyone's waste bins. Whilst warned that the property is on the 3rd floor, the steps to the apartment are extremely steep, to the point that it's almost necessary to go on all fours, thus very difficult to get luggage up and down - a serious hazard. There is a sophisticated heating system but two of the units aren't working - blown fuses? WiFi is excellent but the process of logging in (it's necessary to complete a form) almost certainly contravenes the General Data Protection Act in the unnecessary information requested. There appears to be a number of items missing from the inventory (a selection of knives, chopping board). The main window does not open fully. There is a large rug in the living area that's a serious slipping hazard. There is a vast collection of cleaning items that clearly hasn't been tidied or checked for an extensive period. The shower either runs hot or cold, very difficult to get the temperature right. The duvet is far to small for the bed. Closer supervision is badly needed.



Stay away it’s mine!



Lovely apartment and view
Appreciate it’s a Shared alleyway , but it’s bit dark at night ,extra lighting would be great ....other than that nothing didn’t like



Perfect apartment, in walking distance to everything you need. Would definitely recommend.






Amazing view over Whitby! The apartment was incredibly clean and furnished lovely.. would love to stay here again in the future.



Very stylish accommodation , great location...



Fantastic central location. Amazing view of Abbey. All the facilities you need. Parking can be a bit difficult when it’s busy. And mind your head when you sit on the settee!






We had a lovely stay at this flat - the highlight was the beautiful view from the upstairs window of the pier, sea and Whitby Abbey. Beautifully designed, quiet, clean and modern. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Charlotte Nicole


Beautiful apartment right in the heart of Whitby. Stones throw from all the shops and harbour. Stunning views of the sea and the abbey, impeccably clean. Would highly recommend



Enjoyable stay, clear instructions from the host and spotlessly clean.



The apartment was incredible, so stylish and comfortable, great location and absolutely fantastic views over whitby. I'm a local girl and even I was amazed by the view! Stay were great at replying to messages and communication all the information needed throughout the stay, will recommend to people in the future!






Lovely place , so clean and the window views are fab. Good location.



It’s a lovely property, good location



Excellent property, in an excellent location! Was a pleasure dealing with Stay North Yorkshire, would highly recommend their properties.



Bed extremely comfy. Well furnished. Beautiful place.
Could have included extra bedding and towels. Sky tv would have been nice.



Super apartment - very stylish, clean and well-equipped - with a stunning view over Whitby, its abbey and the sea. The bedroom is cosy and comfortable, with a lovely bathroom just across the hall. Nice touches like milk in the fridge when we arrived, and a helpful folder with local tips (and instructions for the various gadgets/appliances in the flat). We had an issue with the dishwasher (I know, first world problems!) which was fixed very quickly. The only thing to note is the stairs to access the apartment - no issues, but they're steep and quite tight so might not be ideal for someone with mobility issues. But this is a really top notch apartment!



A hidden gem. A modern cosy space with theee best view from the bifold window. Pull up the bar stools and watch the sunshine and night sky across the rooftops.
All amenities and a great cooking space.
Crisp fresh bedding and fluffy large bath sheets.
A great base for our 12 mile walk from Staithes back to Whitby.
X4 bus is half hourly up the coast. 5 minute walk from the flat.



Burn's Yard, what a stylish place to stay, perfect location and the bifold window is sheer brilliance which will definitely come into it's own in the warmer months.



Great little place in the centre of Whitby. Parking 5 mins walk away.
Only thing maybe could say was the shower was not very powerful. Other than that. First class.



We absolutely loved our stay at Burns Yard Apartment. We would definitely stay there again next time we visit Whitby. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and is super stylish. The view is amazing and it's such a great location with everything on your doorstep but tucked away so it's nice and quiet. Communication with the hosts was super easy and there was lots of useful info provided before we arrived and in the apartment. A real treat weekend away, highly recommended.



A fantastic few days in Whitby. Emily and the team were very responsive answering questions leading up to the visit and giving recommendations on places to visit and things to do. The apartment was warm, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with a fantastic view across the harbour. Highly recommened.



Nice place in the heart of Whitby. View from living room is lovely. Very stylish living room and kitchen.



Great view of Whitby from the living room. The apartment is newly refurbished, very clean and modern. Nice touches on arrival plenty of tea and coffee and pint of milk. Would highly recommend.



Stylish apartment in a great location.
