The Corner House a Self-catering cottage Home From Home in Whitby

Are you looking for a self catering cottage that's fully refurbished with quality fixtures and fittings but which is also incredibly central, with no hills, steep steps or cobbles to negotiate? Well, you've found it. Here at The Corner House, everything you could want in Whitby is almost literally on the doorstep.

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

At The Corner House, our goal is to provide you with the best self catering experience that we can and we're constantly updating and adding to the cottage, to make it the home from home getaway that you can't wait to come back to

  • All bedding (beds are made up for you)
  • A small selection of essentials
  • Books & Board Games (for Children & Adults)
  • Ironing Board & Iron
  • DVDs
  • Safe

What we provide to help you to enjoy your stay

At The Corner House, you'll find that we've tried to create a cosy home from home environment, with an open plan ground floor, large, comfortable beds, TV's in every room (except the bathroom!) - some with DVD players and quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Travelling with young children? We've got you covered, with a travel cot (with additional mattress), high chair, baby gate and toddler toilet seat, so that you don't have to try to cram them all into the car (more room for shoes!) The only thing that we don't provide is the travel cot bed linen but we know that you prefer to bring your own anyway.

The whole cottage has been tastefully decorated and has a shower room with a rainforest and handheld shower head, housed within a fantastic, large shower enclosure (big enough for two, if that's what takes your fancy!)

We also have a great, very heavy and authentic electric stove effect fire, which brilliantly combines the heat, beauty and romantic dancing light of a wood burner but without any of the awful mess; the best of both worlds!


  • Hand & Bath Towels
  • A bottle of wine on arrival (your preference of red or white)
  • Travel cot (with additional mattress), high chair, baby gate & Toddler Toilet Seat
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Hair-drier​​
  • DAB radio/iPod sound system

We have a minimum stay of three nights for the majority of the year but during the various School holidays, we do only allow week long stays. Always get in touch though, as we may be able to accommodate shorter or longer stays, depending on availability and the time of year.

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
