My 1950’s house is on the outskirts of Whitby in a cul-de-sac, with parking on the street. I am taking extra care to sanitize our space due to COVID-19.
I'm half a mile from the cliff tops and Cleveland way. 15 minutes walk down hill in to Town (so uphill on the way back!!). I offer a simple help yourself breakfast of cereal, toast and hot drinks, included in the price.
The 'White House' with good pub grub is a 10 mins walk. I am close to a Lidl, and a Spar store with cash point and fuel.

The space
I moved to Whitby in 2014 and I am gradually updating the house. The house has a good feel to it, quiet and relaxed. Guests are welcome to make themselves at home in the dining room. I also have free Wi Fi.
I like to take care of the environment so I try and recycle and avoid packaging as much as possible.
I am an artist so you will see some of my work dotted around. I have a studio in my garden you would be welcome to see more of my work.
In the summer on warm days there is a pretty garden to sit in but I also have a good drying rack for wet walkers clothing!

Guest access
Guests basically share my house with me. I take bookings for one, two or three people - I don't rent any spare rooms to other guests, so your bedroom is/are totally yours during your stay. I have a lovely dining area for breakfast or if you need to sit at a table to work. Whilst covid-19 is still a problem my lounge will be private, and I will give you sole use of the upstairs bathroom. I also provide a cleaning/sanitising kit in the bedroom. Please note there is no acess to cooking facilities.

Other things to note
You will have sole use of my upstairs bathroom, it's not modern but functional and the loo is separate. I will use a separate downstairs toilet.

Although I do not allow dogs, I have the details of a local dog sitter who will look after dogs overnight.

I always have vegan alternatives to milk etc as I am non dairy, but don't worry I have milk for milk drinkers!

I run an airbnb experience called "Sketch Whitby" - sketching the beautiful town of Whitby, and making a tiny sketchbook (2 hours). All materials provvided. Check availability on the experience page or we can set up a custom experience to suit you.

There are odd occasions when I may not be able to greet you, or may have to leave early in the morning. However I do have a key safe so that can be arranged should it be necessary.

I live in a quiet friendly neighbourhood. Its a short walk to get to the sea, or not far to the old railway line for interesting walks or cycling.
There are many events in and around Whitby - historic and musical together with the 'pirate festival' or the famous 'goth week end' to name but a few.

I am a 60 something lady and an artist. I travel a little and usually on my own so it is nice to have friendly accommodation. I like to eat vegetarian and vegan food and I love the outdoors and gardening. I enjoy travelling in Europe, and have toured a lot in my ancient camper van (now no longer with me :( ) and I speak a little French and Italian. I like music and open to all sounds! and usually travel with a good book. When I am travelling I just like simple but friendly accomodation, and that is what I offer at my own home. I am alergic to cats - so there are no animals in my home.

During your stay
I work from home a lot so am on hand to give advice about places to eat (I have a fish and chip shop guide!) and places to visit in Whitby and further afield. If we are all up at the same time then we can breakfast together (at a suitable distance or outside) and have a chat, but there is no set breakfast time if you need to leave early or want a lie in.
