Property Details

The Space
1 Oswy Street has a stylish living room with white leather sofas and a flat screen TV. The ideal place to relax after a busy day at the beach, you can snuggle up on the sofas and keep up with your favourite shows on Freeview.

Fully equipped for self-catering staycations, the kitchen has everything you could need to prepare meals easily. The dining area includes a glass dining table with monochrome seats.

Head upstairs to the first floor and you’ll find two bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom features a king size bed and the second room is a double. Both bedrooms have comfortable mattresses and premium bed linens.

The family bathroom includes a bath with overhead shower, WC and basin.

On the second floor, you’ll find the third bedroom. Perfect for children or teenagers, this space is a twin.

1 Oswy Street is located on the East side of Whitby and is a short 10-minute walk to the town centre.

Walk along Church Street and you’ll wind up at the East bank where you’ll find 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’.

Walk over the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk and you’ll find yourself at the West side of town. It’s here you can discover cosy pubs, fun arcades and even more fish restaurants! Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

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
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from 1 Oswy Street.

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.

The size was good and in good proximity to the town centre. It had everything we needed for the weekend.
There was a wobbly chair and only 5 chairs altogether, had there been 6 we would have struggled. The rear yard could have more done to it



Property was clean and position regarding Whitby was good.
Kitchen equipment was lacking, Drain in the yard was partly blocked. Instructions on using cooker, and washing machine would have been helpful. Washing machine did not work properly. No curtains in the front bedroom so light came in. Cupboards were clearly not checked as there were 3 broken glasses.and some of the crockery was dirty - bearing in mind £90 of the rent was for cleaning.
Just to say that we have never complained about a property before. Did you hire cowboys to do the maintenance?
Also we do not think this property is suitable for people with mobility issues or young children.



Handy for town. Managed to get parked close by which was good



proximity to centre of Whitby. well equipped, well presented and clean internally
would have liked a mirror and somewhere to hang clothes in the top bedroom.
stairs configuration by bathroom was a bit dodgy - needed care to avoid any accidents!
outdoor area was not fit to use.






There`s a step going into the bathroom which one of us fell over,there needs to be a sign on the door Mind the step.Apart from that it was a nice place in a good location.



Location was ok.
There were a few issues with the property,
Toilet roll holder and towel holder were loose on wall.
Shower head was leaking.
Toilet lid/seat had to be held up when taking a pee.
No curtains in 2nd bedroom to block light.
Cheap dining room chair broke when it was sat on.
Curtain pole brackets were loose in dining room.
Door to bathroom location is dangerous - should be at least 600mm from first step of staircase - my partner nearly fell down the whole stairs when she missed the step coming out of the bathroom.
More attention to upkeep of property, could do with a maintenance man to correct a few issues.



Great location and lovely property! Hosts were very easy to communicate with and very responsive.



really nice house close to everything you needed no complaints at all



Very good



comfy, great location, easy to find, easy to work heating etc, good instructions and helpful information provided
dust under the sofas and behind doors when we arrived . otherwise very clean snd wel maintained



There was space
The property went for style over comfort. The stairs were steep and unsafe when going to the toilet in the dark. it was not pet friendly. The light switches are a problem as you have to go up the stairs in the dark before reaching the switch.
There were minimum pans, no instructions how to use the cooker, no cafetiere, minimum number of chairs. The main room did not seat a family of 6 with a dog. What seating there was, was uncomfortable.



Good communication with owners prior to the visit.
House was clean and comfortable.
5/10 min walk from the centre



Clean and cosy place in a great location within walking distance of everything. There’s a nice friendly pub literally 30 seconds walking distance from the property.
The beds in the property were very comfortable, had a great nights sleep.

Not a negative on the property but parking can be hard work, best bet is to park up and leave it there for the duration .Parking in Whitby can be hard work in general anyway .



Bedding very clean, heating good
Sofas uncomfortable stair carpet dirty hall had dog hair's lack of crockery eg egg cups and pyrex dish for the microwave.

Great base to visit Whitby and a nice clean property



Very good






Great location, short walk into town and close to restaurants, bars, shops. Spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen. Only issue is parking which can be tricky at busy times. we were lucky and managed to get a space right outside the house.



Grate space,. Close to center,.



House is in an ideal location from which to visit Whitby.

Jon Lee

Karen M.


Very good, seagulls on form.



location ok within easy walking distance of whitby centre for us.
accommodation well equipped with basics
parking was a lottery, however once space found within 1 minute of accommodation car left for duration of stay.
Had to keep bedroom windows closed at night or be kept awake by noisy seagulls



Excellent property in a very good location. Recommended.



All good

Easy walk into centre of Whitby. House had all amenities and perfect for a few days in North Yorkshire



We had lovely stay with family Thank you



The property is spotless clean, with comfortable beds. The location is in walking distance to and from the town. Where’s there are lots of interesting trips and places to enjoy..



The location was excellent - convenient for the town and beach. It was extremely clean and had just about everything we needed, including a complimentary box of chocolates on arrival! The beds were comfy and the kitchen well equipped. The owners were on hand to sort out any problems and it was easy to get in touch with the booking agent if we needed anything.
Unfortunately there were no cleaning products under the sink, although this is easily rectified.
