17a Grape Lane is a grade 2 listed building – in its day a bank, a seamans’ hospital, and even home to the Whitby photographic archive. Today it’s a luxurious self-catering holiday apartment set out over two floors. With large reception rooms and two generous bedrooms, two bathrooms and a downstairs toilet and fantastic harbour views, you’ll have space to really relax and enjoy your stay.

First floor

The kitchen provides dining for up to six people and all those essentials for holiday living – a dishwasher, washer-dryer, microwave (and don’t forget to look on the table for your complimentary bottle of wine…) If you’ve got little people in your party, we’ll even provide kiddy-cutlery and crockery. And there’s no need to worry about bringing tea towels and washing up liquid – they’re all there for you.

Behind the front door…a flight of steps leads to the hallway, off which is a cloakroom with toilet.

The 21’ lounge boasts harbour views from its false balcony on one side, and overlooks the street from the other. There’s a flat screen, HDMI TV, bluetooth speakers, a DVD player, and a selection of films, books, jigsaws and games on hand for you to enjoy.

Second floor

The house bathroom has a generous bath with shower fittings, and is situated next door to the twin bedroom. Housing two single beds, this room can also accommodate a foldaway bed or cot, if required.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed bed, the original fireplace and an en-suite bathroom with a shower cubicle – and, best of all, an uninterrupted view over the harbour that changes every time you look!

Little extras

We want to make your holiday as care-free as possible, so we’ll provide the little extras that make all the difference.

It goes without saying that you’ll find the beds fully made up, and soft towels ready for you, when you arrive. You needn’t worry about bringing your own tea towels, either.

Free WiFi, books, DAB radio in the kitchen, bluetooth speakers, DVDs and games – and even an iron and ironing board all help to make this a home-from-home experience.

For little people, we’ll even provide child-sized cutlery and crockery, a box of toys and a teddy for the duration of the stay! A travel cot and high-chair are also available at no extra charge.

We try to provide everything we can think of to make your holiday a relaxing one – but let us know if you think we could do more!

One foldaway bed is available, and can be placed in either of the bedrooms.
