Mitch House in Whitby
As Church Street lies in the heart of Whitby much can be seen and enjoyed without the need of transport so the car can be quite redundant after arrival.
Certainly the restaurants and pubs are minutes away.
If breakfast seems too much of a chore there are cafe's serving up along the street. There the famous 199 steps to the abbey. 100 yards away is the east pier of the harbour, perfect for clearing the cobwebs after the night before or an evening stroll.
East of this pier is a stretch of shore called the Scaur at low tide - rock pools for exploration - sea life and various crustaceans fossils and the odd piece of Whitby jet.
Tate Hill beach is two minutes from door.
Shops banks and super markets all within walking distance.
Mitch House offers ideal holiday accommodation in Whitby with everything at your door.
About Mitch House
Enter the house via the cobbled street into a comfortable reception and lounge area. Here you can relax on the leather sofa's after your journey to Whitby and begin to allow the character of the town wash away the cares and worries of every day life with the next tide.
There is the TV if you desire or why not sit in the window and watch the ever changing picture of the street outside. Upon the street you may well find one of a few regular street entertainers; for instance a chap sat playing his harp or one of the live statues. There will be folk passing by going about their business oblivious to the fact you are just beginning your holiday break as a new resident of this historical fishing town.
The first floor houses the main bedroom and adjoining bathroom there is ample cupboard space within the original panelled wall. If you are tired after your journey take a lie down and gaze up to the old beams in the ceiling and ponder what secrets they hold from the last 250 years. Perhaps you would like to freshen up and take a shower or soak in a hot bath whatever you desire.
Climb the winding stairs to the second floor and find the newly fitted kitchen and another lounge area. Why not make a hot drink and sit in the window seats watching the street below or sit back on one of the sofa's and relax
The third floor is the twin bedroom where large dormer window looks onto the harbour at the back of the house and the fish pier below. From here you also gain a birds eye view of the town and the west cliff at the opposite side of the river Esk. Again the beams and floorboards have been stripped back to their original state, this is a running feature throughout the house. The timbers within the construction of the roof are reclaimed 'ships timbers' which was the tradition in house building at the time the house was built. You will note the purlins are round and tapered and in fact were once ships masts.
