With stunning views over the coastline and the abbey, this duplex apartment is quietly tucked away in the centre of Whitby. Set in a converted Victorian building, it provides the perfect bolthole for couples wanting to enjoy the many attractions in this popular seaside town. There is a communal entrance with stairs leading up to the apartment, which is situated over the second and third floors. With upside down accommodation, the cosy sitting room is at the top and features large Velux windows, taking in the spectacular views over the red roof tops to the sea and ancient abbey, a lovely place to relax in after a busy day out. The bright and cheerful bedroom, along with a modern bathroom and compact kitchen are located on the floor below. The kitchen also benefits from a large window, where you can sit at night and watch the twinkling lights of the town. Ideally placed, all amenities are on the doorstep, with numerous restaurants, pubs, quaint tea rooms and wine bars to sample. Explore the labyrinth of quirky narrow streets and ginnels, stroll down to the harbour and head over the famous swing bridge to the cobbled market place. You can work up an appetite by climbing the 199 steps up to St. Mary's church and the abbey, or take an invigorating clifftop walk along the Cleveland Way, with breathtaking views along the dramatic coastline. The long sandy beaches are a delight, lined with brightly painted beach huts, while the pretty gardens in Pannet Park, along with the art gallery, are well worth a visit.

“We returned back from Whitby yesterday after staying at high ridge for the last week. We stayed here in 2020 also and again it was very clean and welcoming. The apartment is in a great location, and 100% worth the money. You get the most amazing views over the abbey from the living room. They provide you with parking passes so you don't have to worry about paying for parking. We will deffo be returning again next year. Thankyou for a great stay!”

“This is a 2 floor apartment that is accessed via 2 flights of stairs through a shared main entrance. On the first floor the apartment has a has a nice sized double bedroom with plenty of storage for your clothes and a decent bed with linen that smelled nice and fresh. The bedroom window was overlooking the back street, the window itself lifts up to open letting in lots of fresh air (which is important to me) but when closed it isn't very good at keeping out any noise but noise on silver street is quite rare through the night luckily. It has a bathroom with a bath and a good shower (some showers can be like standing under a dripping tap!) The kitchen also on the first floor was a good size too with everything you need for self catering. On the second floor was the sitting room, it has a 2 seater sofa a comfy chair and a dining table but being in the loft part of the building the shape of the ceiling might be a nuisance for taller people I'm 5'2 and was fine :) . The views from the kitchen and sitting room are facing the abbey and sea so are lovely to look out on. The apartment itself I found to be clean and tidy. It allows pets but it didn't smell of dogs (like some do) and there was no dog hair anywhere. High Ridge is situated very near to the swing bridge and shopping area of Whitby, really handy to nip back and forth to. Its surrounded by cafes and pubs and takeaways so you never have to walk far if your hungry. The most important thing to me when booking a holiday in the UK is price, I hate feeling ripped off but I think the price of High Ridge is one of the best for what you get, its just a shame it doesn't have a parking space as I found it a nightmare finding a space close by. I will definitely be booking again next year. If your OK with stairs you cant go wrong with this place.”
