Hanover Cottage has been renovated in recent years to create a property that is suited to modern day living, whilst retaining plenty of character and original features. There's a large, fully equipped kitchen diner with Bosch appliances and underfloor heating. This is a perfect social space for dining and drinks. A spacious and comfortable living room and conservatory provide lots more living space for our guests. There is even a ground-floor bedroom and adjacent large bathroom that is suitable for guests who cannot manage the stairs.
On the first-floor you will find 4 further bedrooms plus two bathrooms, one being a full ensuite. There are 8 beds in total; 1 king, 1 double and 6 single beds to sleep 10 guests. Please note that the fifth bedroom is a little smaller and has a single bed with a 2nd pull-out single bed, therefore it can be used as a single or twin room.
We want our guests to have a great holiday and provide lots of items to ensure you have a hassle-free and home from home experience. Guests do comment on how well-equipped the accommodation is and as a family friendly place we provide equipment such as high chairs, travel cots and baby monitors. There is also games, childrens books, buckets, spades and beach towels.
The house has the advantage of ample outdoor space with enclosed gardens to the side and front of the house. With a patio table, seating and BBQ it is a perfect place for enjoying al fresco dining and drinks at any time of day.....weather permitting! The gardens also provide a great place for children to play and explore. Please be aware there are some steps in the garden and young children will need to be supervised.
Whilst Hanover Cottage is not specifically built for wheelchair access, it may be suitable if you have restricted mobility as most of the ground-floor is on one level. Please call us to discuss your individual requirements and we will do our best to assist. You can view our access statement here:

Ground floor facilities
Welcome to Hanover Cottage, an impressive, 5-bedroom house in the popular coastal resort of Whitby in North Yorkshire. Ideally located on Prospect Hill, you can reach Pannett Park, the town centre and the harbour in 5 minutes on foot and be on the beach in 10! Parking is not a problem as we have a private driveway right next to the property with room for 4 cars. Hanover Cottage is an ideal place for friends and families to holiday together, whether it be for a week, a fortnight, a mid-week get away or a long-weekend. We can accommodate up to 10 guests (2 in each bedroom) and provide everything needed for an enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Having started life as a small cottage, Hanover Cottage was extended in Georgian and Victorian times to create the large, detached house that stands today. It is quite different to other properties in central Whitby as it has a spacious conservatory and beautifully established gardens. You can spend time relaxing in the house and gardens or venture out and explore all that Whitby and this beautiful area has to offer. We advise our guests to walk into the town centre if possible as parking can be difficult and expensive. However, there are buses and taxis available and the bus stops are very near to the house.
