Please don't be tempted to book on that site though - their booking fees are eye-wateringly high (for absolutely nothing extra), making it WAY more expensive than it is to book with us directly!

We stayed at The Corner House late June, and we loved it. The house is perfectly located, extremely clean and has everything you need - really is home-from-home. There’s a carpark less than a minute away - I downloaded the RingGo app and just topped up my parking daily (£9). Last but not least, Nichola (the owner) was brilliant - comms were great from booking to leaving. Nothing was too much trouble, you can tell she really wants you to have a great time whilst you’re there. Liked the place so much we’re already discussing coming back next year!
Excellent central accommodation
Lovely cottage right in the heart of Whitby - very central you can walk everywhere. the cottage was like home from home and compared to other rental properties we have experienced in Whitby this is hands down the best in terms of comfort - fluffy towels for starters!!
Clean and lovely cottage
This cottage has the perfect location in Whitby if you want to be right in the town centre. Easy to access, lovely host, all the informations you need and good shower (I find so many places have bad bathing facilities and I was therefore impressed by the water pressure and temperature here). I highly recommend this cottage and the owners.
Perfectly Comfy and Central For Attractions
The cottage is central to Whitby, perfectly placed for those not wishing to venture far or for those on foot. Equally we found it a perfect base to head off to surrounding villages or jump on the steam train. The cottage itself being comfortable and with every thing thought of ( including a complimentary bottle of wine) it was the perfect short break for us. The owner Nichola was a pleasure to deal with, provided us with lots of useful information on both the cottage and attractions in Whitby and surrounding area. Would recommend to others. Thank you Nichols.
Excellent property in an excellent position to reach all Whitby has to offer.
This neat well appointed property is well furnished, extremely clean and more importantly, it Is in the flat! We stayed for four days to celebrate my husbands birthday, and as he had recently undergone major heart surgery, location was important. Everything was within walking distance, just a few minutes over the swing bridge, and car parking nearby. The owner Nichola was extremely helpful by providing information on everything a holiday maker would need to know, and nothing was too much trouble. She was even kind enough to pop a birthday card through the door on the day of my husbands birthday. I highly recommend this property, and would not hesitate to return.
A lovely central place to stay in Whitby
The corner house is very central and convenient for all activities. It is well equipped and very comfortable. I was particularly surprised at how quiet it was as it is surrounded by shops and bars and the views of the harbour are lovely. Would definitely book again.
Ideal Location, especially for those with walking difficulties, and a cosy well-equipped cottage
This lovely cottage is basically on the harbour, and, as one of our party of three has quite restrictive walking difficulties, this was perfect as it is very flat, and so he was able to get out and take himself off for walks around the entire harbour area and onto the pier, this alongside the fact that the cottage is situated near to some of our favourite eating houses, made it the perfect venue! The cottage has a lovely lounge area, with a fire for Winter months and modern wall mounted TV (a little too high for comfort to be honest), a dining area, and smart kitchen area complete with all necessary equipment including a washer dryer should you need it. There was tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. Also supplied were washing up liquid, hand wash and laundry solutions. There are handrails on both sides of the stairs, leading to a well lit bathroom with a large shower with only a small step in, sink and toilet, two bedrooms, one being a good sized double,with king bed and windows on two sides, lamps and ample storage. The twin room was a nice size, light and with a small inbuilt wardrobe, including a safe. One of the beds which had a sprung mattress was quite uncomfortable as you could feel the springs, a topper would probably solve this. When we were there it was a heat-wave, and I recommend that a couple of small fans are provided for the bedrooms. Although the cottage is right in the midst of everything, the secondary double glazing did an excellent job of keeping out noise, and made the whole place very quiet and peaceful. My husband and I have been to Whitby many times over the years, but it was the first time for my brother in law, and he was absolutely blown away and cannot wait to return. We thouroughly recommend this property and Nichola the owner, who was always ready to answer any questions we asked. We hope to return to the Corner House next year for our little 3 or 4 day break.

Had a wonderful weekend break staying in the Corner House. The cottage is very well appointed and was very clean on arrival. The location is perfect, as everything is within a short walking distance. Nichola kept in touch from the time of initial booking up to the day we arrived giving excellent recommendations on the local restaurants and cafes. She was more than happy to answer any questions we had too. Parking was good for us, as we parked in the car park located near to the cottage, so transferring bags from the car was easy. A memorable first visit to Whitby and we will certainly be returning.
Perfect location and beautifully appointed cottage
Our first trip to North Yorkshire and Whitby and we couldn't have been more pleased with The Corner House! It was extremely comfortable and cozy and was the perfect location to explore Whitby. We parked in the car park next door, which made it very easy to come and go as we pleased. Nichola is a thoughtful host who checked in frequently to ensure all was well. Would definitely stay again!
Excellent cottage, great location & perfect weather!
The Corner House is an oasis of calm in the heart of the bustle of Whitby. It is spotlessly clean and offers all a family could need for a fantastic break in an unbeatable location within this beautiful town. The communication and welcome received was swift, reassuring and genuine. We were lucky enough to have wall to wall sunshine on our weekend break and the cottage offered a tranquil base from what turned out to be a very busy weekend. We loved it all and would recommend the location and the quality of the accommodation to couples and families alike. Thank you Nichola for your hospitality!
Beautiful residence. Ideally located on Abbey side of town, (literally seconds from shops). Comfy beds, plenty of wardrobe space, clean bathroom. Open living/dining/ modern kitchen, cutlery and utensils provided. We stayed with another couple and we all agree how amazing our stay was. So much so, we wanted to book the same time next year before we left. Nichola (the owner), was very quick in replying and also very helpful with the many questions I bombarded her with. We will definitely be booking next year.
The Corner House Whitby
Great cottage, great location, great host. The cottage is very well furnished, comfy sofa, central heating, lovely warm fire, great shower and fantastic beds. The location is fantastic for either mooching around Whitby or venturing out of the area. Especially as there is a car park within 2mins walk. 8f you fancy a cottage in central whitby, then the corner house is a very good choice
The Corner House is a fabulous find right in the heart of Whitby, literally a 30 second walk from the swing-bridge. Its cosy, clean and decorated to a high standard. The views from the Living room and bedrooms are amazing and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need for a long stay. The owner Nichola was very helpful - great communication with her from the minute we booked till the morning we left. Highly recommend, already planning our next trip 😊
First time we have stayed there and hopefully will not be the last. A beautiful, well decorated, spotlessly clean gem of a cottage. The owners were so helpful from the initial booking to the final day of our stay. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Just Lovely - Perfect Little House
I had no doubt that The Corner House would be a lovely place to stay due to its location and information I had read about it. When we arrived and stepped foot inside we knew instantly that we had made the right decision. It is in a fantastic location, 2mins from the cobbled streets, many quaint shops and the renowned 199 steps. Not to mention the eating places. The house itself was cosy, good central heating, bathroom with a really good shower. The bed in the double room was incredibly comfy complete with TV, although the reception wasn't good in there. Kitchen had everything needed. In the living area had table and chairs, two sofas (which to be honest were a bit uncomfortable presumably with all the wear and tear (feeling the springs) but was adequate for the short stay. Plenty of books, games, videos and a handy guide on Whitby together with the instructions for the kitchen /heating etc. You really couldn't fault the place. Fab communications and help/advice(if needed) was always available from Nichola. We are regularly visitors to Whitby and no doubt at all will stay again at The Corner House.
**OWNER'S UPDATE - The sofa's have since been reupholstered, so are super comfy again! We're still working on the TVs though - I think we're just in a bad signal area :( **
5 star cottage.
Our second stay in this well equipped, cosy cottage and in a great location. Nichola, the owner was on hand to answer any query immediately. Will definitely be going back. Thank you for an amazing stay.
Just back from a fabulous few days in Whitby, staying in this beautiful, homely, cosy cottage. The cottage is superbly decorated, full of charm, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Ideally placed to just park up and leave the car until you leave. Its within walking distance of everything. Lots of bars, cafes, restaurants and takeaways on the doorstep. There are a good selection of games suitable for all ages, dvds and Netflix on the TV, if you fancy a cosy day in and just relaxing. Nichola goes above and beyond in ensuring everything is perfect, communicating from booking to returning home. Would definitely recommend a stay here. Thanks again!
Lovely Cottage - Great Location - Thoroughly Recommended !
Wow! What a lovely place to spend some time. The cottage is superb,tastefully renovated to include all mod-cons without losing its charm and sense of history - warm and cosy on an atmospheric winter's night - bright and cheerful in the sunshine. Nichola's attention to detail and concern for her guests' comfort is apparent as soon as you walk through the door. The location is wonderful immersing you straight into the vibrancy of day to day life around Whitby harbour. The sound proofing is very good too ensuring a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. All in all a delightful experience - Thanks Nichola - can't wait to visit again
Loved it !!!!
Just returned from a 5 night stay at this lovely little cottage, it’s our third time & got 2 breaks booked next year, it’s a gem of a place everything you need for a comfy stay in Whitby, ideal location on the edge of the old town, I think where this cottage has the edge on other properties I’ve stayed at is they all look tired after a while whereas I don’t see these owners letting this one go the same way mainly because they seem to care a lot about the place , Nichola is a top host and always on the end of the phone, a little tip anyone booking whio doesn’t no the area , book a prepaid car park ticket for church street car park in advance with the tourist information it’s cheaper & you don’t mess about each day putting tickets on your car .also book direct with Nichola works out cheaper, enjoy !!!!
Just had a fantastic long weekend at the Corner House cottage in Whitby. The cottage itself is everything you could ever want from a seaside retreat, and then some! Downstairs has a kitchen area, dining area and lounge area with two two-seater settees. The kitchen area is modern and well equipped, with fridge, washer-dryer, oven, four ring hob and microwave. We only used it for breakfasts but I’m sure it’s well up to catering for a full on three course meal. Oh, and there’s a separate wine cooler too. Dining area has a free standing table and dining chairs for four people. Lounge has the aforementioned settees, a log effect gas fire and TV with digital channels and access to Netflix, YouTube, iPlayer, etc. There’s also free wi-fi and the whole place is toasty warm with full central heating. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a shower room with sink and toilet. The main bedroom has a very comfy double bed with side tables and reading lamps. There’s plenty of drawer and wardrobe space for all your clothes. Bedroom two has two single beds. Both bedrooms have their own TV. Shower room has sink, toilet and a very large walk in shower. The location is superb, being at the end of the older part of Church Street, just around the corner from the swing bridge. Honestly couldn’t fault this cottage an will definitely be returning again.
a step back in time with a modern twist
beautiful and quaint little house so clean and oldie worldly comfortable and warm Nicola has thought of everything great location and great communications from Nicola thanks
Very comfortable cosy cottage in an excellent location.
Perfect central location within easy reach of all tourist attractions and beach. A comfortable, cosy and well equipped little cottage perfect for a family holiday.
Ideally located in the centre of Whitby. Parked the car and walked everywhere for our short stay. Fish & Chip shops galore (is it possible to have too many?). The cottage is beautiful, cosy and snug. Really nicely furnished with everything you could need for a break in Whitby. Thank you for letting us stay. We will return at some point in the future.
this place is brilliant just like being at home all the mod/cons tvs in 3 rooms close to everything in Whitby right next door to pie & mash shop we had ours delivered would you believe that didn't even have to wash up 2 sofas dining table for 4 good sized kitchen we are going back maybe in nov. pub over the road chip shop & indian restaurant all that you need to have a great break
Had an excellent week at the Corner House, right in the centre of Whitby. I would highly recommend it. Ideal location for exploring Whitby and visiting the Pubs and Restaurants, with an excellent choice for all Tastes, from the Star Inn on the harbour, to eating "Take away" Fish and Chips at the Endeavour, whilst enjoying a beer. The "Humble Pie and Mash" restaurant next door delivered our order on plates to the door, as the kids were in bed.
Lovely cottage in a really great location. It was clean and very well equipped. Our toddler was very happy with the toys provided which was a nice addition. Nichola was helpful, informative and happy to respond to any queries from booking to departure. Thanks again for a great holiday.
Stayed at The Corner House with my Mum in mid Sept. Was virtually perfect for us: excellent central location, cosy, clean and had everything we needed. Lovely touches like a bottle of wine left out for you, long life milk in fridge, anti-bac soap and postcards that you can make use of for a small donation. Nichola the owner was lovely; very helpful and ensured our stay was a very pleasant one. The house and location have a very interesting history too. We tended to eat lunch out every day and then cook at the house in the evenings; I found cooking to be very easy in terms of the oven/hob and equipment available in the kitchen. Really pleased we stayed at The Corner House and would definitely recommend it if you want self-catering accommodation in Whitby.
An absolute must stay!
From beginning, during and to end, Nichola was fantastic to deal with. So helpful and full of information and tips of where to go, eat and do. The cottage is simply lovely and finished to such a high spec. It's so easy to keep clean and is situated in a perfect spot, close to everything but once inside you're away from it all. It's been so well thought out with very smart stair gates, high chairs, toilet seats etc and lots of storage in each bedroom and downstairs. It has a well equipped kitchen meaning you don't have to be out all the time which is great when you have kids. There is a TV within built in DVD and Netflix. Free WIFI and a TV in both bedrooms. A lovely bathroom with a shower. Constant hot water and very good heating! It's a great size with one double bedroom and a twin bedroom. Both very decent sized rooms. It ticks all the boxes and we'll definitely be returning. I wouldn't bother staying anywhere else when the cottage has all our needs and is so lovely to stay in. With a pie and mash shop right next door, fish and chips right opposite and a lovely quirky pub 40 steps (approx) across the street that has live music, bar snack food and an array of gins to choose from, you'd be hard pushed to find better. It's away from the main hustle and bustle (but within a very short walk to all of it) so it's lovely to come inside, shut the door and have the peace when you need. Lovely views too of the harbour and boats and a long stay car park just feet away at a very decent price which you can get cheaper when you book at the tourist information centre. There is so much to do in Whitby you will not be bored. I recommend the steam train on NYMR, a yellow bus tour, crabbing, the abbey, 199 steps, a river or sea trip and Fisherman's Wife restaurant for fabulous seafood and views. There are so many lovely shops and a huge amount of places to eat. Some fantastic views too. Dealing with Nichola was a real pleasure. You can't fault this beautiful holiday cottage! What a great find! Enjoy your stay!
The cottage is ideally sited in the centre of Whitby with all the amenities you could want. The owner goes out of her way to ensure your stay is enjoyable and communication is first class. Loads of excellent restaurants to choose from on your doorstep, e.g. Indian, Italian x 2, fish & chip shop/restaurant opposite and pie and mash, next door. Have booked this cottage several times already and always happy to return.
Top notch !!
Just stayed here for a week, and have 3 more bookings over the next 12 months, that really says it all, this cottage has everything, it's well equipped spotlessly clean and nice and roomy , set in the old town its right in the heart of all the bars & restaurants, once you have parked up you can explore whitby on foot, the owner Nichola is more than helpful nothing to much trouble and always on the end of the phone if need be , give it a try you won't be disappointed . Nigel & Denise x
Cottage was brilliant location , lovely and clean and well equipped, great communication with owner will be returning soon
Home away from home. Brilliant.
We had a lovely week staying in Nichola's cottage in Whitby. The cottage has everything you would ever need for a week away. The cottage is well situated in the heart of Whitby. Everything is within easy walking distance. We only moved the car once in the whole week because there is so much to do in Whitby. I would have no hesitation recommending "The Corner House" to anyone looking for somewhere to stay.
Fantastic weekend in a lovely cottage x
Stayed for a weekend in this lovely little cottage,excellent location right in the centre of the old side of Whitby,Fully equipped with everything you could need.Right next to shops ,restaurants,pubs and takeaways( fish and chip shops).The owner Nicola is very friendly too.Only downside is parking,which is bad in Whitby anyway,Not very easy to park nearby but large car park available at other side of swing bridge.Didn't put us off though,would definitely go again x
Lovely cottage in a perfect location.
The cottage is in a great location, walking distance to all the local attractions. The amenities are everything you could ask for with all bedding and towels included. Nichola is very prompt to answer any queries you might have and provides very clear directions to the property. Her recommendations for local cafes and restaurants were spot on as there were loads to choose from.
Perfect Cottage, priceless service to guests!
We were blown away with the Corner House by the location, the beautiful decoration and furnishings. The cottage is set up for a perfect retreat and everything you need to ensure that you are comfortable. It was if we were the first to stay there as it was so spotlessly clean with the softest towels and everything looked brand new. Just perfect! More importantly, the owners go more than the extra mile to ensure your wellbeing. More like 101 extra! I know this due to a very difficult situation created by neither the owners or ourselves. However, they resolved it more than we could have ever expected and so if you are ever concerned about cottage owner responses if things unexpectedly happen, then choose this Cottage and I can assure you that you can enjoy a fabulous break with a positive response if you need their help. Shame I can't give this review 10 stars. We'll be back!!
we have just returned from staying at the corner cottage 26th to 30th june ,the cottage was fantastic in all ways , location could not be better close to all amenites , best cottage we have stayed in hope to come back soon , nichola the owner was very helpful - cheers nichola
Super location. Very clean and tidy. Comfortable beds. Church street car park convenient and has ringo option
What a great find. Beautifully finished, comfy, cosy, spotlessly clean, fully equipped, central location with lovely views of the upper harbour, friendly and helpful owner and to top it all a nice bottle of wine waiting for guests on arrival. Communication with Nichola was excellent, all the information you could want, plus answers to questions you'd probably not thought of 😊 Great selection of games for all ages were provided, my granddaughter loved the preschool board games, a good selection of books and DVDs were also available - the weather was lovely so we didn't really make use of these.
The corner house whitby
Just come back from a great weekend staying at the corner house on grape lane whitby , it has a good central location and is very well equipped we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thanks to the owner Nichola for her professional communication throughout and after our stay . Thanks for the complimentary wine.
Had a lovely time staying at this super cottage. Everything you need, very comfortable. It's central location close to harbour, shops and cafes/bars is ideal. Nichola made the booking easy and helpful. Will definitely be booking again.
Perfectly Idyllic and perfectly located
Loved the Corner House - it was fabulous and perfectly situated in Whitby! Nichola is a delight to work with! We didn't want to leave!
This is a lovely little cottage in a fabulous location. Despite being in the middle of the action it was really quiet at night and we slept really well in the comfy beds. Nichola was a fantastic host, with great communication from the outset and loads of helpful recommendations of what to do in Whitby. The house was immaculate and had a spacious feel for a town house. We would definitely recommend Whitby to anyone, and certainly stay at the Corner House.
Just had a fantastic couple of days at the corner house. What a fantastic cottage, so homely, spotlessly clean. Everything within walking distance right in the hub of Whitby. We'll definitely be back again next year.
Charming cottage in a central location
The cottage is central to everything you would need, shops, bars, restaurants, beach, train station etc. Very clean throughout and comfortable with tea, coffee and sugar provided and also a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. Nichola who owns the property is very helpful and informative and keeps you up to date on your booking etc. This was our second visit and already we are looking forward to returning. Bedding and towels are included too.
We loved our three day stay at the corner house. Everything you want to see in whitby is within walking distance. And a short drive to robin hoods bay. We really enjoyed riding bikes on the Cinder Trail, such beautiful views! The house was clean and well furnished, would definitely stay again.
Bank holiday break
Stayed for 3 nights at the The Corner House with my partner his daughter and his mum. The cottage was of a great location on the flat and right near the restaurants pubs and the Abbey there's no parking on site but we were lucky enough to find a place on the street for free. It was clean and well equipped and Nicola gave lots of information by email and txt nothiing was too much trouble. We would recommend staying here and would definitely stay again.
Great cottage in superb location
Great comfortable warm cottage in central location, within short walking distance of everything in Whitby. Parked the car up on arrival and only went back to it to top the car park ticket up. Has everything you need for a comfortable self catering stay, but has all the amenities of Whitby at hand when you step out the door. Would recommend for a short stay or week away.
A lovely cottage in the perfect location
Located just over the bridge Corner House is in the perfect location to explore Whitby. There are plenty of nice eating and drinking places close by. The cottage is very cosy and contains all that you would want for a lovely holiday. Nichola the owner was very helpful with plenty of useful information.
lovely place to stay, close to everything. Lovely view of the river, Warm and cozy on a cold and rainey day. will visit The Corner House again
Beautiful cottage, great location
We had a lovely stay in the cottage. It's in a great spot close to all of Whitby's main attractions. Nichola very helpful and provided everything you need including recommendations for good local eateries. We tried a few and were not disappointed. Hope to return.
Great cottage in a great location
We love Whitby and visit 3-4 times per year. We will definitely go back to the corner house, it's a lovely house in a great location. The house is well laid out, clean and tidy, and full of character. It's in a great location, on the west side of the harbour only a short walk to the abbey steps with loads of pubs and places to eat. Friendly and helpful owner Nicole. You could not ask for more.
Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and tastefully decorated and in a perfect location
Central location in the heart of Whitby, an ideal base for exploring the town and making the most that Whitby has to offer. No need to use the car unless you want to explore the surrounding area. The cottage was spotless, very comfortable and well laid out. It has been renovated to a very high standard and had everything we needed and more. The wifi worked perfectly which is a bonus if you have teenagers. The communication with the owner was excellent and were were provided with a lot of information and recommendations in relation to parking, shopping and cafes/restaurants. We had a fabulous break and will definitely book again in the future.
Wonderful cottage in the heart of Whitby
The location is excellent. Just step out of the door and you are at the centre of things. Shops, restaurants, pubs all within very easy walking distance. Lovely places to visit by car. The journey to the abbey not as bad as we thought, all 199 steps of it! Nichola couldn't have been more helpful with the booking and making arrangements to stay and clear directions were given so finding the cottage was very simple. Very comfortable bed and the cottage had everything you need for a stay though we didn't really use the kitchen equipment etc as we tended to eat out. We managed to find free parking but it was a good walk and I suspect that in the summer months you'd struggle to find anything.
Our Wonderful stay in the Corner House
We had such a lovely time, being in the middle of everything and waking up to looking over the Harbour was wonderful. Also fab Resturant's just a short stroll away. Can't wait to return
Fab week away!
Spent New Years week at Whitby in this cottage. Couldn't of asked for a better stay! Lovely cottage, modern decor, perfectly sized and located. Very clean and comfy beds! The cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay. Nichola the owner is very helpful and always there incase you need her. Can't wait to stay again next year! Thank you for a fab stay from the Earl family! :-) x
Great location and beautiful house. Recommended if you want to explore Whitby and the surrounding area.
