A beautiful Georgian end-terraced house in the heart of the coastal town of Whitby, this property can sleep up to 12 people in spacious and elegant surroundings.

This beautifully restored Georgian house is spread over three floors and has kept many of its original features such as stained glass windows, high ceilings, doors and fireplaces and the house has two staircases leading up to each floor, one of them being the servants' stairway at the back. The five bedrooms are spacious, elegant and peaceful. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower, with a further bathroom and a ground floor shower room serving the property. A range cooker takes pride of place in the fantastic dining kitchen and both sitting rooms boast a fireplace and offer comfortable and inviting living spaces. The whole property exudes character and charm and would make a marvellous base for a large family get together and to see this wonderful area.


A lovely holiday home in a good location with the added bonus of 3 parking places. We will definitely be going back.

As a family group, we have stayed in Whitby 9 years in a row. This was our second stay at Roseberry and we have already booked for next year. We love it! The house has everything we need and is so spacious and comfortable. We range in age from 65 to almost 2 and all fit in so well. The kitchen with its extra large farmhouse table easily sits 10 or more and has everything you could need. There are two large sitting rooms which means we can use one for the children to spread out with their toys and one can be for the grown ups. Large bedrooms are excellent for family sharing and there are 3 bathrooms plus an extra loo so never any queuing! The little yard outside is a lovely suntrap and excellent for drying the washing (or you can use the inside airer in the utility room). All in all its fantastic.

We booked Roseberry House for a family holiday. The house had to accommodate 8 adults and two small children. It was fantastic! Not only is the position in Whitby ideal, only a few minutes walk from restaurants, shops, pubs etc, but also from the harbour. The house contained everything we needed, the rooms were large and well furnished,making each room, including the bedrooms extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with more than enough of everything to keep us going. The welcome pack was lovely and really made us feel at home. A great house that we would not hesitate to book again.

We stayed in Roseberry House for the weekend in April. We were a group of 9, with no youngsters. We found the house to be perfect for us. Lots of space, in a quirky layout meant we could rove around with out getting in each others' way. The bedrooms were spacious and quiet. Even if the others were still up, not a sound disturbed anyone who had retired for the night! 2 great sitting rooms - each with a big flat screen tv would be ideal for a group with teenagers (there's wifi for them too) but we all fitted in both perfectly, so just had to choose which one we felt like sitting in. Everything was clean and well cared for. Don't be intimidated by the warnings on the macerator bathrooms - just use a bit of common sense and it's all fine. If you had young children with you, prams and strollers etc. could be parked in the utility room out of the way - also, a good place for wet wellies or buckets and spades if needs be! And there's a little sunny courtyard at the back for buckets of shells or other beach finds. We didn't do much in the way of "self catering" - but if you were inclined to use the range stove, we're sure you would find every thing you would need. It's in a great location for "down town" Whitby, so eating out is very easy, just a stroll to the harbourside places and a great tea/coffee shop at the bottom of the street. Parking is not really an issue as there are 3 dedicated parking places just over the road, but the house is in such a fab location, we did not use our cars during our stay. All in all this is a great house for large groups of any combination. You can split up into smaller groups if you want to, or stay together in the lounges. There are various configurations of doubles and twins to accommodate a wide range of combinations of families, friends, couples and children. It's handy for everything and won't break the bank. A top house and we would not hesitate to return.

9 of us (all adults) stayed in Roseberry House for a long weekend. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house is very spacious & warm with 2 lounges and a large well equipped kitchen. The owner even left us tea, milk & biscuits for our arrival. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated and comfortable and there are plenty of toilets & bathrooms to avoid queuing! Only one thing to watch out for is that towels are not provided. The house is situated within easy walking distance of the town, pubs, restaurants & attractions so we didn't move the cars until we left to go home (which we were glad about as the narrow Whitby streets are a bit of a challenge to navigate). Would definitely recommend the house and would love to return.
