11 Bakehouse Yard is a newly renovated holiday cottage located in the centre of the bustling seaside town of Whitby. Close to all amenities, independent boutiques, restaurants and bars, and just a short walk to the beach and harbour you are ideally placed to enjoy everything this lively town has to offer.
Sleeping up to four guests across two bedrooms this high spec, modern property is ideal for couples, families or friends looking for a break by the sea.
11 Bakehouse Yard is located in the centre of Whitby within walking distance of pubs, restaurants, cafes and bars. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find an array of cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants. Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts. At the other end of Pier Road, you’ll notice the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk.
Over the bridge, you’ll find yourself on the East bank which is full of narrow medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and fish restaurants. 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.
Whitby train station is less than half a mile 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.

From the guestbook
So central. So lovely. Finished to such a high degree of quality. We stayed with a new walking toddler and while it may sound crazy to do so in a three storey townhouse it worked for us. Take the time to understand the parking rules and if you do you’ll have a great stay.
Brilliant location in centre of Whitby, handy for eateries and attractions. Beautifully renovated modern little house with superb kitchen and bathroom.
Would have liked full length wardrobe in main bedroom and hooks on back of doors would have been useful. Also somewhere to put toiletries in bathroom would have been nice.
Had a fantastic stay and everything was as described and even better! Also great location! Only issue was with parking, so ensure you take note of how long the parking permit lasts for! Otherwise good communication and would definitely stay again if visiting Whitby, which is a lovely place
THIS IS GORGEOUS PROPERTY,WELL EQUIPPED AND VERY TASTEFULLY DECORATED THROUGHOUT..
THE LOCATION WAS EXCELLENT RIGHT IN THE HEART OF WHITBY.
PERHAPS I SHOULD MENTION THAT THE STAIRS ARE A BIT TRICKY .I HAVE A BALANCE PROBLEM ,I DID MANAGE THE FIRST FLIGHT ONLY WHICH NEED ANOTHER SMALL RAIL AT THE TOP ON THE RIGHT.
WE FOUND THE CAR PARKING A BIT TRICKY AT FIRST.HOWEVER THE PARKING SCRATCH CARDS ARE A BONUS AND ONCE WE HAD SORTED HOW TO USE THEM A BIG HELP TO OUR STAY.
JUST A COUPLE OF SMALL ADDITIONS OTHERWISE PERFECT
WE LIKE FRESHLY GROUND COFFEE AND DO NOT LIKE THE COFFEE MACHINES THAT USE THE PODS.
PERHAPS A CAFETIÈRE PROVIDED AS WELL SO THERE IS A CHOICE AND WE MAY BE OLD FASHIONED AS WE USE A TEAPOT SO PERHAPS A TEA COSY.
Amazing apartment with all facilities required. Everything was brand new and immaculate. Excellent location, near all the main bars and restaurants. Right next to the pier. Perfect place to stay in Whitby!
Only thing missing was dish washer tablets but not a massive inconvenience. Apartment is not very accessible for those who are not able bodied (narrow stairways and cobbles) but this is unavoidable given the location. Just helpful to note for those who hope to stay here.
This place is of such a high quality. Very accurate description. Recently renovated. Appreciated the parking vouchers, milk, fruit and roses! Great position to be right in the heart of Witby. Would recommend and definitely stay again.
Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location. Will book again ?
Wow - this is a gem, fantastic location, immaculate inside and everything catered for, even buckets and spades for the beach. I hadn’t realised it was 3 floors with was a great surprise. Also Sky Q in every room.
The management company for the house were also extremely proactive. Thanks - we will be back
Great cottage, great location. Very modern and clean. There are two flights of steep stairs in the property, just be wary. Overall a great stay and we would definitely return.
This is a hidden gem!
So well equipped, clean and tidy.
The location is perfect if you would like explore Whitby on foot.
The lounge cupboard had beach toys and a rug which we used every day - such a great touch!
There are steps up the property but we easily managed them with a pram.
The bathroom is especially gorgeous ?
11 Bakehouse Yard is spotless, modern and lives up to the photos. It’s a very well stocked home with lots of extra touches such as wireless phone chargers, fruit, coffee machine capsules, cake and flowers. There’s also a cupboard with loads of extras to borrow such as beach towels and bucket and spade for the kids. Parking was straight forward once I got my head around it - I used the loading bay spaces just outside the entrance to Bakehouse Yard to get bags in and out of the accommodation, then drove elsewhere to park. I ended up at the top of the Khyber Pass hill most days. It’s handy to know that if you go up the stairs in the Bakehouse Yard alley on foot, then turn right at the top, it gets you to the top of the hill quickly making it easier to retrieve your car.
Great cottage in central location, can’t fault the accommodation!
Lovely house, very clean and everything you need. Great location for centre of Whitby. Would definitely recommend.
loverly property and location, very clean and tidy, and owners are there straight away if you need anything, definitely stay again.
We loved everything this fantastic property had to offer and will 100% be staying again!
Nothing to dislike. it’s a 10/10 from us!!!
This is a beautiful little house in the centre of Whitby. The interior is very tasteful, all appliances modern and the bathroom luxurious. It has a well equipped kitchen and was generally very clean. Firewood, orange juice, milk and cake as a welcome gift were lovely!
Lovely house, great location once you find it! We really enjoyed our stay.
This is a really nice apartment, very comfortable and with plenty of the little things which make your stay really good. Lemon drizzle cake and posh coffee supplied. Very nice.
Superb location and a fantastic property renovated to a high standard.
An absolutely stunning property in a perfect location. The property has everything you could need and was spotlessly clean. There were some lovely extra touches, including fresh flowers, milk and orange juice, as well as parking permits, which were hugely appreciated. We can’t wait to stay again and would thoroughly recommend!
Lovely cottage in a great location. Just a mix up with the code for getting the key but sorted quite quickly in the end.
Absolutely perfect stay in Whitby, the accommodation felt like a real luxury and in a fantastic location! Would definitely recommend and book again next time we visit Whitby!
Perfect location very central, stunning accomodation, clean and superbly presented. Would highly recommend. We loved our stay.
We loved our time at the cottage, as we got engaged that weekend it will always have a special place in our hearts. The attention to detail is fantastic, with everything you could need - even cake forks! The location is wonderful, quiet but also right in the middle of Whitby so could not be more perfect. We have already recommended the cottage to many people and we will be back!
Beautifully renovated cottage, in great cental location.
Very well equipped
Highly recommend this property.
Fantastic location, the cottage is immaculate and finished to a very high standard. It’s also very well equipped to make you feel right at home.
We will definitely stay here again.
Gorgeous accommodation in the centre of Whitby. Great for exploring the area. Couldn’t fault the house itself, it has been furnished with great care and attention to detail. Had everything we needed, and more.
It was beyond expectation
The cottage is absolutely beautiful and the pictures don’t do it justice, can’t wait to come back
What an absolutely stunning place in a great, central location. It's not often properties look as good - if not better - in person as they do on the photographs, but that was absolutely the case with this property.
The host, Lilli, was very communicative via email too - and so helpful. There were so many nice touches to the place, too - including some lemon drizzle cake, fruit, milk and orange juice on our arrival and a TV in the bathroom, ideal for a spot of relaxation after a busy day spent Christmas shopping. The Air B&B is in a great spot, too - within walking distance of Whitby's shops and pubs and it's such a nice house that we enjoyed spending time just relaxing and watching Netflix. Can't wait to visit again and already talking about our next trip there!
beautiful and cosy
Stunning house in an amazing location. Full of mod cons such as hive heating, sky, internet, washer dryer. Truly a home from home with everything you could possibly need, even down to pods to wash clothes with if needed!
So luxurious and a real treat
Accommodation is out standing the pictures do not lie. Location is great. Parking was easy. Much thought has gone it to all that might be needed during a stay. This is an absolute must stay x
We loved everything
Beautiful finish, excellent location
Extremely comfortable beds
Very clean highly recommended
We loved everything
It was that good that we joked we wanted robes because we felt it had a level of luxury and we felt very comfortable and relaxed
Only thing I’d like for next time is a lamp/reading light in the bedroom
As we had to keep the big light on for reading.
Just as it looks in the photos - beautiful house that feels very newly decorated and clean. Really comfy and cosy and brilliantly located to explore Whitby
Beautiful cosy cottage with all mod cons and nice welcoming touches, can’t fault it. Just a great pity it’s such a nightmare parking the car.
Super clean. Beautifully fitted out. Lovely shower. Comfy bed, good linen.
No table to eat at. Top of stairs not very safe.
Lovely place in a great spot - central but quiet. Very comfortable with everything you’d need. On the more expensive end but a real luxury treat - the shower is fantastic. Thanks for the extra additions (milk, fruit, juice).
Beautiful cottage in a great location! Close to the Magpie for famous fish and chips (we got a take out at night to take back to the cottage!) Very clean and all the facilities you would need. Comfy beds, bath/shower amazing. Would definitely stay again!
Too many dogs being allowed into pubs and restaurants
A lovely place to stay in Whitby, great facilities and location.
Absolutely gorgeous cottage, everything done to a high specification. Felt brand new, had everything we needed during our stay. Location is great we tried to travel around on foot for the duration of our break as parking is a nightmare. Can’t recommend enough. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
Beautifully presented, very well equipped and fab bathroom!
Not a don’t like point, or a criticism in anyway - more advice to other customers/visitors to 11 Bakehouse Yard. I would recommend parking in the Cliff Street car park to load/unload your car, before finding a W Zone to leave your parked at. The W Zones can be a 5 min walk away from the property, which through narrow cobblestone (and steep) streets is a challenge with luggage - but Cliff Street car park is right next to the property and it makes life easier to park their initially.
The whole house was finished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean & in a brilliant location.
The two seater setter was way too soft, although I do understand a new one is on the way. A small coffee table would have been nice, somewhere to put your mug of tea whilst sitting in the armchair or settee.
The big thing that would have made this property out of this world, would have been a garden, but I understand that’s not easy to come by in such a prime location ...... loved Whitby
This is a newly refurbished cottage in the centre of the town. It has been fitted out to an extremely high standard and it is a beautiful place to stay. Bathroom with TV was an added luxury! All bed extremely comfortable.
There was absolutely nothing to find fault with and would highly recommend this property to other clients.
Bakehouse Yard was fantastic,the best i have stayed in at Whitby,absolutely gorgeous little cottage.immaculately restored and filled with welcoming touches!!
Highly recommend this cottage. If you are staying in Whitby look no further. Great location and property renovated to a high standard. Exceptionally clean and in a perfect location. We will be coming back to this cottage.
Great place with brilliant amenities. Very high spec and had everything you needed and more.
Kitchen was very well equipped and thr bathroom was great. The place is a bit difficult to get to if you have a lot of luggage or a child and it took us a while to find a parking place but the location is great for exploring once you're there.
Great property great location a bit pricey.But would highly recommend.
Every thing was good quality.
Great location on Bakehouse Yard, very close to the Quayside one minute walk from the Magpie restaurant. Close to the bridge across to the Abbey side of Whitby. So many wonderful restaurants etc within minutes walk away. We were both amazed by the excellent standard of the refurbishment of this beautiful cottage even luxury bathroom including tv! Everything had been thought of by the owners even including beach towels, children's games etc. Beds so comfortable! We did a lot of walking in the area, easy access to Cleveland Way, Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes, Goathland etc etc. Both myself and my friend would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to friends and family. We will return!
We stayed for a weekend in June everything was excellent, cottage is in a great location. The accommodation is excellent throughout loved the TV in bathroom 5 ? rating form us , can't wait to return.
The communication from the owners was exceptional so we had no problems at all finding the property and gaining access.
Good location, property very clean and welcoming. Everything needed on arrival was there including milk, and fruit. I can't think of anything that could be improved!!
