Hanover Cottage is a unique house with plenty of character and original period features, such as Victorian and Georgian fireplaces and wood sash windows. We have updated the property in the last few years and added a large, fully equipped kitchen diner, ground-floor family bathroom, first-floor ensuite bathroom and underfloor heating. The kitchen diner now offers a great social space alongside the living room and traditional conservatory. Our ground-floor twin bedroom is adjacent to a spacious family bathrooom, making it ideal for guests who struggle with stairs. On the first-floor you will find a further four 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 a maximum of 10 guests. The fifth bedroom is slightly smaller and has a single bed with an additional pull-out single bed, therefore it can be used as a single or twin room. We can provide a travel cot or fold-away bed if you have a younger guest in your party (please request on booking).


The house has ample outdoor space with beautifully established gardens to the side and front of the house. With a patio table, parasol, chairs and BBQ it is a perfect place for enjoying al fresco dining and drinks at any time of day! The gardens also provide a great place for children to play and explore and are fully enclosed by hedges and fences (plus the driveway has a 5-bar gate). Please be aware there are some steps in the garden and young children will need to be supervised.


We do provide a lot of items to ensure you have a hassle-free and home from home experience. Good quality bed linen is provided along with mattress protectors, anti-allergy duvets, pillows, bath and hand towels. We can provide highchairs, baby monitors and other items should you have any little people in your party (please see 'Items provided' for a full list). The house has gas central heating, underfloor heating in the kitchen and ground-floor bathroom and a constant supply of hot water. However, the traditional conservatory is not heated and is therefore not suitable for use in the colder months. We have garage storage for bikes and pushchairs if required, just ask us for a garage key when you arrive.

We offer self-catering accommodation for up to 10 guests and provide everything needed for an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

Located on Prospect Hill, you can reach the town centre by foot in 5 minutes and public transport is easily accessed nearby. It is an ideal place for friends and families to holiday together and we welcome children of all ages. We are assessed annually by Visit England and are currently rated as a 4 Star establishment with an additional Gold Award for hospitality and service.


There is so much to do in Whitby and there are many events held throughout the year, such as Whitby Regatta, Goth Week and Folk Week. Take a stroll through Pannet Park on the way into town and visit the fantastic maritime themed adventure play area and the museum and cafe. You can spend time at the harbour and on either of the two beaches. From the harbourside you can walk over the old swing bridge to the East side of town, with it's quaint cobbled streets, independent shops and attractions such as the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey. Or walk up to the West Cliff for children's activities including mini golf, an outdoor paddling pool and a skate boarding area. Also located on the West Cliff is The Pavillion, which is a popular venue for exhibitions, plays and music events. There are plenty of pubs, cafes, tea rooms and restaurants to choose from should you wish to dine out.


You can stay at Hanover Cottage for 7 nights or more from £160-£250 per night and our prices include all utilities, unlimited wifi, bed linen and towels. Holidays generally start at 3pm on a Saturday in high season but arrival days are flexible at other times of the year.

Please check 'Availability' for short breaks, current offers and specific prices as we regularly update our calendar and add new dates. Please be aware that we cannot accept pets at the property- sorry, not even well behaved ones!
