The grade 2 Victorian town house built in 1860 was home to one of Whitby's highest regarded benefactors Mr R E Pannett why not visit the park and museum which bears his name and view the fine artwork that he bequeathed to the town There is a wonderful sense of history with the original features blended together with modern facilities providing a relaxing and calming feel. The house boasts many original features such as the stunning tiled Victorian bathroom which takes centre-stage which we believe is the last surviving one in Whitby original marble fireplaces in every room ornate plaster coving and sweeping staircase. Each Double/King guest room is a generous size with en-suite facilities tastefully decorated using original features and marrying them with modern day comforts.
During World War 2 Pannett House was used as billets for soldiers on their way to the front there is a tangible reminder in the family accommodation lounge in the form of a bullet hole in the plate glass window to the rear which has been in filled with lead it is said a soldiers gun fired as he was cleaning it and shot straight though the glass without shattering it!!!!
