This quaint and quirky apartment in Whitby sleeps two people in one mezzanine bedroom.

Nutshell is a splendid and unusual apartment in Whitby, accessed via 16 external steps and set over the first floor. With one mezzanine double bedroom reached via open tread, spiral stairs and a wet room with luxury underfloor heating, this cottage can sleep up to two people. There's also a bright seaside-themed sitting room set below the bedroom and a lovely galley-style kitchen. Outside is a tiny sitting area beside the front door on the patio and within five minutes' walk is a car park, of which the owner provides a permit with parking on a first come, first served basis. Nutshell is a sweet little property, perfect for couples seeking a snug hideaway in wonderful Whitby.


Perfect hideaway
This little gem is perfect for getting away from it all whilst being close enough to all the attractions of Whitby. Excellent cafes and just a short walk from the sea and Whitby Museum. Ideal for 1 or 2 people and the bed is so comfy, I slept better than at home!

A lovely quiet cottage in great central location.
Mrs Timson

We loved Nutshell! Beautifully designed, the accommodation is immaculately clean and very well thought out. The nautical theme works well and gives a lovely feel to the place. The location is great, quiet street but close to shops and only a short walk to the harbour and beach. We loved staying at Nutshell and look forward to another visit there!

Nutshell is amazing. My husband and I had an extremely relaxing, enjoyable time staying there and were extremely impressed with the high standards and experience. Can't fault it in any way. It is a beautiful little place, the attention to detail was outstanding. Well done to the owners.
Mrs Gennafd

A nice location and everything was on your doorstep. The decor and furnishings were lovely, all nautical features, very much a seaside retreat.
