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, spacious living room and conservatory, each providing lots of living space for our guests. We do provide lots of items to ensure you have a hassle-free and home from home experience.


The 5 tastefully decorated bedrooms can sleep 2 guests in each room. There are 8 beds in total; 1 king, 1 double and 6 single beds. One of the bedrooms is on the ground-floor (sleeps 2 in twin beds) with a large adjacent bathroom containing a bath and separate shower enclosure. These ground-floor facilities are ideal for our less mobile guests who would struggle with the stairs. On the first-floor you will find four further bedrooms plus two bathrooms, one being a full ensuite. Please note that the fifth bedroom is 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 can provide 2 travel cots and cot linen if you have any younger guests in your party.


The house has the advantage of 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.


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:

We offer self-catering accommodation for up to 10 guests and provide everything needed for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Having started life as a small cottage in the 16th Century, Hanover Cottage was extended in Georgian and Victorian times to create the large, detached house that stands today. Rather unusual for central Whitby the property has private driveway parking for 4 cars, a conservatory and beautiful enclosed gardens. Located conveniently 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! It is an ideal place for friends and families to holiday together, whether it be for a week, a fortnight, a mid-week break or a long-weekend.
