French doors lead from the kitchen onto a large deck . The private enclosed garden has a lawned area, a large picnic bench & a seating area

There is also a large walk-in shower, WC and basin located on the ground floor.

Take the stairs up to the first floor and you’ll find four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC. The master bedroom features a king size bed, a freestanding bathtub and a traditional Victorian style basin. The second bedroom has a super king bed, the third features a king bed and the fourth bedroom has a double. Modern and clean, the family bathroom includes a walk-in shower, WC and basin.

Upstairs on the second floor, there is a king size bedroom and bathroom. With sloped ceilings and skylight windows, both rooms have beautiful views of the sky above. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, WC and basin.

You'll notice views of Whitby Abbey and the sea in the distance from some of the bedroom.

Set on the West side of Whitby, Puffin House is just a short 10-minute walk into the centre of town. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find 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.

Getting Around
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from Puffin House.

Whitby train station is roughly 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.

House was fantastic, spacious and beautifully presented and had everything we needed. Great spot for walking into the harbour area.



Great location 10 mins walk to centre of whitby.
House clean spacious and comfortable.
Comfy beds with lovely big towels provided.
Showers powerful and hot.



Location was great
Recycling bins would of good



Great place to stay for a big group visiting Whitby. The house was clean and spacious and bright. Plenty of space to cook in the kitchen. The showers are brilliant! The little garden at the back is lovely. Perfect location away from the bustle of the town but easy and quick to walk there.



lovely house everything you need for a large group tastefully decorated and well looked after. The location is perfect particularly if you like walking as all the attractions are no more than a couple of miles away and most are within a mile.
Can’t think of anything.



Loved the bedrooms and showers. The beds were comfortable and clean. Showers were powerful and hot. Fab sea view from
the rear of the house.. Kitchen was a lovely size and well equipped. Handy guide emailed with loads of relevant information.
Parts of the floor downstairs weren't very clean. We found some old cereal stuck to the floor under the dining table and a sweet wrapper by the sofa. Floor in kitchen/diner
looked a bit worn and shabby.



Great location, short walk to the beach. Very clean and provided all the essentials we needed for our stay. Space was very practical to accommodate a large group, especially the kitchen/diner area.



this is an absolutely stunning house and was perfect for my family to all get together for my 60th birthday. The house is like a tardis with fabulously large bedrooms and reception rooms. every room is decorated to a really high stardard with quality fittings. It is ideally placed for walking into Whitby and enjoying it's history.



Thank you for a great stay! We loved your place and will recommend to friends and family.



large house, big rooms, all accessories required, beautiful garden. more than expected. we had some issue with the electricity. but this was sorted quickly.
nothing really. everything was more than expected



Lovely house in a lovely location - would recommend!



very spacious, great location & well equipped kitchen for self catering
kitchen worktops hadn’t been cleaned and there were crumbs on the floor which clearly hadn’t been vacuumed.
easily rectified though & didn’t stop us enjoying the property or our weekend!!



Wonderful house in a great location. communication was excellent too. Thank you!



This house is amazing. We were a party of 8 and had plenty of space. The house had everything you could possibly need, was spotlessly clean and in a perfect location. It is a two minute walk to the sea front and a ten minute walk into Whitby centre. We would definitely go back to Puffin House if we return to Whitby.



The house is really beautiful. It’s well set out, with high quality furnishings and fittings. The location is good and the town centre is easily walkable. We loved our stay and would stop again. We would recommend the property to friends and family.
The driveway isn’t big enough for a five bedroomed house. We just got two cars on it, of which was a small city car. There’s more than enough potential to increase the size of the drive. I’d also like to see hand wash in all bathrooms and kitchen area, especially during the current Covid climate. Likewise a welcome pack would have been nice for the price paid.



Location excellent- very clean, excellent facilities
Small but important- poor quality loo roll needed to buy more than was in property for family of 10



House was excellent, recently refurbished to very high standard and super clean. Also perfect location by the coast to explore Whitby. We used for family trip to celebrate my mum’s 60th and we all enjoyed our stay.



Very spacious and comfortable and has a very well equipped kitchen,
The decor and furnishings are beautiful,
Whitby is just a short walk from the house.
