Duck Down Cottage has plenty of history within its walls. Originally built in 1690 reportedly from stone from a demolished castle, this cosy cottage provides a unique stay on the coast. Nestled in the centre of Whitby, Duck Down Cottage is a cosy one-bedroom bolthole that has everything you need for a perfect seaside getaway.

The space
Typical to properties of this era, the cottage is called Duck Down Cottage due to areas of the property having low ceilings. In some areas if you are over 5' 8", you will have to 'duck’ but it all adds to the charm!

You’ll be welcomed into the open plan kitchen, living and dining area to begin with. This cosy space has been utilised to its full potential and features a beamed ceiling and statement fireplace.

The living area boasts a stylish, leather sofa and flat screen TV. Perfect for snuggling up with your loved one, you can enjoy a peaceful night in following a day of exploring the seaside.

In keeping with the rest of the interiors, the kitchen is modern yet elegant. It is fully equipped with a fridge, oven, hob, kettle, toaster and coffee machine. To kick start your self-catering stay, the cottage will have tea, coffee and milk ready for your arrival.

The dining area sits perfectly behind the living area. The wooden table is framed with two leather dining chairs. Whether you’re ordering in a takeout or you’ve cooked up a storm in the kitchen, it’s lovely place to relax.

Open the sliding door to reveal the bedroom. Although cosy in size, this sophisticated space boasts a comfy double bed and ample drawer space. You can expect plush bedding and luxury bed linens so you can get a restful night’s sleep during your stay.

The modern bathroom is ultra clean and boasts a large walk in shower.

Guest access
Guests have access to the full cottage. The keys to the property are accessed via a secure key safe and full details will be provided shortly before your arrival date.

Free on street parking is located nearby and there are also a number of pay and display carparks within a short walk from the cottage. Further details on parking will be provided before your stay.

Other things to note
We welcome one small, well behaved dog.
