The Castle House



Based in Whitby, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and less than a mile from the hustle and bustle of the Town Centre, this beautiful, double fronted mid terrace house will comfortably sleep 5 + travel cot.

We're also very happy to welcome your well behaved dogs free of charge (numbers dependent upon size and age - if you have more than 3 dogs, or if any are 1 year or younger, please get in touch before booking, to discuss!) and have a fully enclosed rear garden with large patio, lawn, shrubs and dog hose with shower attachment, for after those long runs on the beach!  They also get some super scrummy, locally made, dog treats to enjoy, as well as a spare lead, holiday collar tags, poop bags, toys, towel and throws.

We also have private, off street parking for two average sized cars.

To top it off, we have brilliant views of the Moors to the front and Sea glimpses to the back - the best of both worlds.


Here at The Castle House, our newest cottage, you'll find that we've tried to recreate the cosy home from home environment that we've achieved so well at our flagship cottage, The Corner House.  With a large kitchen/dining room and separate cosy lounge with dual aspect windows and Smart TV with Freesat to the ground floor and three bedrooms with super comfortable beds and quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

We've decorated the whole house in a traditional and tasteful way, in order to maintain its charm and character but have kept the quirky layout, so the bathroom is separate from the toilet.  We've brought the bathroom bang up to date though by fitting a new but traditional metal bath with shower over and fully tiling the walls.  We've also added a mirror with light and shaving point to help you get spruced up for a night on the Town!

Even though we've completely refurbished the whole house, we've been careful to maintain this beautiful home's many period features such as cast iron fireplaces, picture rails and vintage door furniture, to give you the feel of going back in time.

Do you have mobility issues?  We're still working on our Access Statement, so until we've got it sorted, please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need to clarify anything, we want to make sure that we're suitable for your needs.

Are you travelling with young children?

We provide a travel cot (with additional mattress), high chair, baby gate, potty and toddler toilet seat, so that you don't have to try to cram them all into the car (more room for shoes!) The only thing that we don't provide is the travel cot bed linen but we know that you prefer to bring your own anyway.

Wanting to treat your dog to a few days at the seaside?

We'd love to welcome your little woofers free of charge (numbers dependent upon size and age). Dogs aren't allowed to be left by themselves though (we have to think of our neighbours - no one wants to have to feel the pain of a distressed dog), we ask that dogs only explore the ground floor too.

Bringing the car? We have that most rare comodity in Whitby, our own private driveway, which is big enough for two average sized cars (with ample on street parking too)!

At A Glance! What we provide to help you enjoy your stay!

Dog treats, bowls, spare lead, poop bags, throws and towels

Hand Towels & Bath Sheets (super fluffy ones too!)

Books & Board Games (for Children & Adults)

Travel cot, high chair, baby gate & potty

All bedding (beds are made up for you)

Always get in touch though, as we may be able to accommodate shorter or longer stays, depending on availability and the time of year.

Also, whilst we want you to enjoy your holiday, we do not allow smoking (including any type of e-cigarettes) or hen & stag parties. We also do our best to supply you with the preference of wine that you've asked for but we can't always guarantee it.

We'd love to hear about your experiences her at The Castle House!

The reviews outlined below have been brought together for you from various different review and booking sites throughout the internet.  Their point of origin will be attached to them, should you want to go to those sites to check we're not fibbing! lol

We would hate to think that you'd ever book via those sites though; they charge for 'extras' you don't need and provide the same level of booking security that you'd have by booking with us direct - so why pay more for the same holiday?  We'd rather you spent it in the local economy (or put it towards those shoes or power tools you've had your eye on!)

Home from home

We've just had a fabulous week at this dog friendly house. The location is ideal, a nice walk down to the beach for the dogs but far enough from the town that you don't get the noise. The house itself is really well maintained, good quality furniture and really comfortable. Even the dogs are catered for with spare bowls, lead, towel, toys and treats all left by the owner Nichola. Whitby is a great base for exploring the coast and surrounding moors. Walking the dogs along the beach from Whitby to Sandsend was lovely and if you're after a forest walk you can't beat May Beck and Falling Foss. Whitby is somewhere we've been to before and will be visiting again.

Home from Home

The house was easy to find, very clean and very comfortable. It was far enough from Whitby to walk in, and far enough out of Whitby to avoid the noise of the crowds (there was a Dracula/Goff weekend on when we went and the pubs were full)! We had cold but sunny weather, except when we were leaving when it hailed! Lidl and Spar were just down the road, very convenient.

Excellent pet-friendly cottage.

The cottage is well placed to explore the local beaches and country side. The walking is particularly good with many spectacular cliff top walks. It was especially good for us because we have three very active spaniels and so many places will allow only one or two dogs. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wishes to take their pet on holiday with them. There is ample parking for even a large car at the front and a secure garden at the rear. The cottage contains all the amenities that you could reasonably want. Nichola, the owner, is on the ball and makes sure that you are happy with your experience.

Harry A - via TripAdvisor - *****, 

Fantastic house, I would definitely recommend this place. Exceptionally clean throughout, top quality bedding & towels. Nice touch hanging tea, coffee & milk available, not to mention the complentary bottle of white which went down well! Kitchen very well equipped if you do want to cook. The house has modern with a contemporary feel throughout,we would love to stay again!

Great stay in Wbitby

We've stayed at a few places in whitby and this is definitely one of the best. The house was lovely and great to have a driveway for parking. Lots of great little touches. We didn't have a dog with us but noticed there were dog tags with contact details for the cottage as well as balls and treats and poo bags for dogs. Plus tea, coffee, sugar and milk, washing up liquid, sponges and plenty of hand soap provided, plus a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. Great enclosed garden for kids and dogs. Lovely comfy beds and sofas. Plenty of crockery, utensils etc. Walk into town was about 20-30 minutes. We were with our toddler so went via pannett Park to break it up so didn't feel like a long walk at all. Lidl less than 5 minutes walk away which is very handy. Overall a great stay and would definitely look to rebook for our next trip to whitby.

The house had everything we needed and was really well set up for dogs. It was all newly refurbished and clean. It was a short walk into Whitby and close to a supermarket. Would really recommend and would love to go back! Nichola was super helpful too

Fantastic cottage, great location

We stayed at The Castle House for a couple of nights between Xmas and New Year, and would definitely book again. The house was cozy and warm, a great place to wander back to at the end of a long day exploring. Nice and quiet, didn’t hear much from the neighbours. We were greeted very kindly with a bottle of wine and some special homemade doggie treats!! Large Kitchen/Diner, cozy lounge, and pretty comfortable bed. Our dog loved the garden and was immediately comfortable in the lounge on a nice blanket! We didn’t meet the owners in person, but they were so friendly and helpful in the correspondence we had. The house is within 15mins walking distance of Whitby town, which is very convenient! The weather we had was brilliant, too- very lucky!! So many things provided for the dog, I’d forgotten his bowls and his towel for drying him off, but these are provided which was great!

Home from home!!

We had a fab stay at this lovely house with our 2 little pooches, what can I say.... it was really welcoming, warm and comfortable, a true home from home, so much so that I wanted to move in permanently!! The house was exceptionally clean and spacious, with everything you can think of needed for your stay and more! we loved the extra little touches like a bottle of wine for us and some treats for the dogs, The off street parking, additional loo downstairs and lovely little garden were a huge bonus, Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Nichola and Dave, they were so friendly and approachable and did everything to make sure our stay was perfect. Highly recommend Castle House and we will definitely be back, wish it was with a removal van! ;-)

Relaxing break in a stunning cottage

What an amazing place! I can highly recommend Castle House, the attention to detail and the warm welcoming feeling you get as soon as you walk through the door makes it feel like a second home. Castle House couldn’t be better placed, less than 5 minutes drive into the centre of Whitby and 2 miles from Sandsend you couldn’t ask for more. A secure back garden and dog biscuits for your pooch make it ideal for them too.

Perfect dog friendly retreat

We stayed here (2 adults, 1 teenager and a large dog) for a few nights during October half term and were really pleased with this little gem. It had recently been renovated to a very high standard, the house was immaculately clean and incredibly comfortable. There is a large off road space to park your car and although the hallway is small we managed to unpack easily. The kitchen/diner is large and bright with a view of the fully enclosed garden through the small conservatory/boot room. the downstairs loo was an added bonus too. The lounge is cosy with 2 leather sofa's and a tv - we brought our Amazon firestick with us and it worked a treat. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 large doubles and a single. The beds were super comfy and the duvets were heavenly. I loved the quirky built in wardrobes! There is a separate loo and bath room, lots of hot water and a great shower. The internet was excellent in the cottage - the teenager didn't complain once! Whitby is an easy walk from the house, maybe just over a mile but quite pleasant. The town is lovely, very dog friendly with lots of shops and cafe's. I definitely recommend the Fuzzy Dog Bakery if you have a pooch! We also spent time on the beach (I believe there are some restrictions in summer but we had full access in October) which our dog really enjoyed. You can also walk from the golf course end of the beach up to the town via a pathway (to save your feet getting wet) which is very nice. There is a lovely Lidl supermarket and a Spar (attached to a petrol station) just a few minutes walk from the cottage which was very handy (the Lidl doughnuts and croissants were especially nice). We also ate in The White House Inn which is a short walk from the cottage. It is super dog friendly with a gorgeous real fire. All in all we had a fabulous few days and I would definitely return again. The owner was really helpful and we felt that nothing was too much trouble.

We loved our time at The Castle House. It’s ideally situated for accessing Whitby and beyond. Nichola has thought of everything when it came to being dog friendly! Tastefully decorated throughout, felt like a true home from home!

Brand new accommodation

Loved our weekend stay at the Castle House. We were very privileged to be the first guests at the newly refurbished accommodation and we had a lovely stay. The beds are very comfy and the house is well equipped. We had 5 adults stay and there was ample room for a short break away. Handy having two toilets and a separate bathroom too! Plus the kitchen/diner is really spacious and off road parking is a big plus in the area. Lovely spacious property in a good location. Well done guys and all the very best xx
