Property Details

The Space
Upon entering Heron Mews, you’ll be welcomed by a spacious living room. With ample seating and a flat screen TV, it’s the perfect place to relax with your loved ones. Double doors open out into a cosy patio area with outdoor seating providing breathtaking views of Whitby viaduct.

At the rear of the property you’ll find a modern kitchen-diner. You’ll have everything you need to make the most of your self-catering stay.

There is a cloakroom with a WC and basin located on the ground floor.

On the first floor you’ll find the master bedroom, second bedroom and family bathroom. The large bedroom includes a double bed, a seating area and flat screen TV, as well as access to the balcony with additional seating. Suitable for children and teenagers, the second bedroom features single bunk beds.

Take the stairs up to the second floor where you’ll find two additional bedrooms and a second bathroom. Both bedrooms boast comfy double beds and sloped ceilings with skylight windows.

Heron Mews is located on the East side of Whitby near the infamous viaduct. Located outside of the hustle and bustle in a quiet and secluded area, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy peaceful walks nearby.

In the centre of town, you can 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.

Ironing facilities is just an iron, no ironing board. They say in the policies that children are NOT allowed, which I have just noticed 1 day before my stay there to finish. Wandering why would you let me make a booking that includes one 7 year old and one baby, if you are not allowing children. Also at facilities it says the property is having a high chair...who for if there is no baby allowed. Also....hair dryer? It says at facilities it is, but none was found



Very good



Lovely house and setting. Everything you needed. Warm and comfortable.
Could do with a hairdryer.
