Welcome to Hanover Cottage, which is located in the popular coastal resort of Whitby in North Yorkshire. Ideally positioned on Prospect Hill and near to the centre of town (approximately 0.5 miles), it is within walking distance of the Harbour, beach, shops, eating places and visitor attractions. Alternatively you can access public transport on the doorstep or use a local taxi company to get around town. There really is so much to do and see in Whitby and the beautiful surrounding area, with an array of visitor attractions and events to suit all ages.
Hanover Cottage is a truly unique place to stay, with everything the self-catering guest requires for a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay. It is a large, detached period property with spacious rooms, period features, beautiful gardens and the rare luxury of private parking for 3 to 4 cars. Easily accommodating 8 guests, it is perfect for extended families or groups of friends wishing to holiday together at any time of year. It has lots of character and original features, some dating back to as early as the 1600's. Once a Yorkshire long-house it stood alone on the outskirts of Whitby and was developed in Georgian and Victorian Times into the large and prominent, rendered property we see today. It was a much-loved family home for 40 years and although our family no longer live in Hanover Cottage it still has a lovely, warm and homely feel to it. Our guests often comment on how this sets it apart from other self-catering cottages they have visited.
On entering the house from the private driveway you walk into a recently fitted and fully equipped kitchen/diner with woodburning stove. A great social space to prepare meals, dine and watch T.V together. A separate utilty room provides a functional and convenient area for washing and drying laundry. The kitchen leads into a traditional wood conservatory, providing a further relaxing social space and views of beautiful gardens (wonderful in the Spring and Summer months). An outdoor patio area with table, chairs and BBQ is great for al fresco dining and drinks at any time of day! A spacious and comfortable living room next to the conservatory also looks onto the gardens, and has a good selection of books and games for the whole family. The essentials such as Free Sat T.V, a DVD player and docking station are also provided in the living room area. From a central ground-floor hallway you enter a spacious bedroom that can be used as a twin or double room depending on your preference. It is ideal for guests who can't manage the stairs and has a newly fitted family bathroom located next door.
A traditional curved staircase leads to three first-floor bedrooms and two bathrooms, aswell as a T.V/play room with a day bed. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a large newly fitted ensuite bathroom with a separate shower enclosure and bath. A good-sized family shower room is located between the two further bedrooms and is easily accessed from both rooms. One bedroom has a double bed and the other can be used as a twin or double bedroom (king size bed), depending on your requirements. All of the bedrooms are spacious, with plenty of storage space and have good quality furniture and furnishings. We even have a fold-away bed or two travel cots for any additional younger guests in your party (please request at time of booking).
