An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Enjoy the myriad attractions of Whitby, or venture slightly further afield to the fishing and smuggling villages of Runswick Bay, Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay.

The Old Bakery is right in the heart of Whitby in the centre of Church Street, one of the oldest parts of the town dating back as far the 1300s. This contemporary, luxurious apartment has been lovingly restored from an old back street bakery dating back to 1871, but the bakery theme still runs true throughout. Beautifully designed and with tasteful decor and furnishings throughout, it is set over three floors with a wrought iron staircase leading up to a peaceful roof terrace. Whitby Abbey, made famous by Bram Stoker’s Dracula, is just a stone’s throw away, and right in amongst a myriad of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes.

Walk out of the front door and step into the heart of the seaside town, with its quaint cobbled streets, numerous eateries and atmospheric harbour. Taste the wonderful fish and chips and work them off with an exhilarating cliff-top walk, or relax on the long sandy beach. Jump on the tour bus to make sure you don’t miss out on everything Whitby has to offer, or take a trip on one of the pleasure boats and enjoy a tour around the harbour and out to sea. There is always something happening in Whitby from the bi-annual Goth Festival to the Whitby Regatta, and their music festivals to the festival of Christmas.

If 3 miles of unspoilt beach isn’t enough, Whitby is also in a fantastic location to get out and explore the natural beauty of the North York Moors and The Yorkshire Heritage Coast.

The unspoilt fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay which nestles into the cliffs of the Heritage Coast is 5½ miles away. Other unspoilt villages include Runswick Bay, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Staithes. Each has its own story of pirates and smuggling to tell.

An abundance of walks and cycle tracks for ramblers and cyclists include the Cleveland Way, as well as the Esk Valley and its stunning scenery, best enjoyed from the windows of the steam train that travels right into the heart of the Yorkshire Moors National Park from Whitby to Goathland which is otherwise known as Aidensfield in the TV show ’Heartbeat’.
Other attractions for a day out include the Beamish Museum, Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land. The medieval walled city of York is just an hour away and is well worth a visit with attractions including the Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum. Parking is available for loading/unloading, and there are car parks nearby and a Park ’n’ Ride facility 1½ miles away, both at cost. Or for a car free holiday, why not take the train and use the tour bus for sightseeing! Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    We really enjoyed the Old Bakery from our first arrival, the house has everything you may need especially in the kitchen. We found the mattresses too firm but that's a personal preference and when I said we won't visit again to your question it's because we have been there and done Whitby and enjoyed it very much but more places to explore.

    We stayed at the Old Bakery last year in October after it was booked by my son and enjoyed the experience so much that my wife and I decided to do it again this year. We have been domiciled in our French home over the past 18 months whilst a house in the UK is being refurbished for us. The Old Bakery had the capacity to accommodate friends and family and so we caught up with many people and gave them all a taste of Whitby and the v.well appointed property. We hope that this can become an annual fixture!

    A wonderful holiday home - beautifully renovated - well equipped and in a perfect position in Whitby. The owner was so helpful on issues around equipment, safety four one year old grandson. I would totally recommend the Old Bakery.

    Another fantastic holiday (second visit in two years) at the old bakery. I've already recommended this cottage to numerous friends. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. Very well equipped and thought out holiday home. We always purchase a parking permit for the week from Scarborough council, can be used in any council carpark and saves the hassle of feeding meters during your time in Whitby and during day trips away from the town.

    Would have given this cottage 10 but it has a terrible drain smell from the downstairs bathroom.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear you had a problem with the bathroom, this is the first time this has happened. Unfortunately, we have only been made aware of this now whilst reading your review. If you had contacted us during your stay, as we advised you to do so when welcoming you into the property, we would have investigated the issue immediately, as the comfort and enjoyment of The Old Bakery for our guests is our priority. We have spoken to the current guests who have said there is no problem at all, however we will investigate the matter further upon them vacating the property.
