This modern terraced cottage is located in the fishing port of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast and can sleep six people in two bedrooms.

Clickety-Clack Cottage is a modern terraced cottage designed in an "upside down" style and is located in the famous harbour town of Whitby on the north Yorkshire coast. With one double room, one twin bedroom and a family bathroom on the ground floor, this cottage can sleep up to six people with the addition of a sofabed in the lounge. On the first floor is an open plan living area containing a fitted kitchen, a dining table and a sitting area with the sofabed.

To the front of the cottage is a small patio with garden furniture and off road parking for one car. Taking its name from the steam railway that passes by; Clickety-Clack Cottage not only overlooks the harbour in Whitby, but is superbly located for exploring all of the coast as well as the North Yorks Moors National Park which is close by.


Clickety Clack...lovely cottage, however...
We stayed in the cottage as a family of 4 in August 2020; our children were 6 and 9 at the time of our visit. Our first impression of the cottage was lovely, a delightful setting, beautifully decorated, private parking and just away from the hustle and bustle of Whitby but near enough to walk. The views of the harbour and abbey were stunning and the Co-op was a short 3 minute walk away - perfect! The cottage itself was very well equipped, in fact the kitchen probably had more than we were expecting with washing up liquid, foil and kitchen roll and dishwasher tablets amongst other things readily and available. Whitby itself was extremely busy, almost too busy given the circumstances surrounding Covid but that is not the reason for the 3 star review. This review is based solely on the cottage itself. With it being an upside down building the bathroom was downstairs and was built at the rear of the cottage into the hillside; this meant no windows to let in fresh air, as a result, with 4 people in the cottage the atmosphere was always a bit damp after our daily showers - in fact it took me three days to dry a load of washing. We followed the instructions with the fan and the heated towel rail but you can?t compensate for fresh air. Due to the building being in the middle of a terrace type row, the cottage was also very hot and not easy to cool down even with windows open. Now for the noisy bit - the cottage is built directly at the side of the railway line, this was perfect for watching the steam trains pass by during the day, it was almost magical to see...the only problem was the 06:15 and 06:30 Whitby to Pickering trains that passed each morning, and because the cottage it next to a pedestrian crossing, the trains are required to sound their horns upon their approach, this was a less than ideal wake up call each day! The other issue was the large harbour car park directly opposite. On the weekend the car park was visited by numerous young adults until 2 o?clock in the morning, there was a lot of shouting, screaming and cars racing/performing donuts outside the cottage which was a terrible shame. All in all; we had a nice holiday but I don't think we would return to this cottage, which is a shame because the owners have clearly spent a lot of time making it an enjoyable place to stay.

Great Cottage
We stayed here for a long biking weekend what a fantastic little cottage at a superb location no taxis required it's right on the harbour which is next to the town the cottage itself is very clean modern & well equipped the owners are fantastic and go the extra mile for you will defiantly recommend and will be booking again there is also private parking for one car If your thinking of booking this cottage you will be in for a treat

Clickety-Clack Cottage has everything you could ever want or need whilst away from home and is in a superb location only 5 minutes walk away from town. The steam trains are an added bonus! We will return!

The standard of cleanliness was faultless. The cottage is in an ideal spot and we liked the living area on the top floor, plus the steam trains running by.

Excellent does not do it justice we have stayed in quite a few holiday rentals over the past years this is by far the best extremely well appointed, great location and car park a must in whitby advice reverse into park spot especially if you have largish car spot is at an angle couple who had next cottage were reversing all the way up to main road. Trains were a plus views of the river and whitby town were a joy
