Stunning holiday getaways in Whitby

Contemporary luxury set amid some of England’s most stunning countryside, Unique retreats – which is five star rated by Visit Britain – is the perfect getaway for all seasons. Stylish, elegant boutique style holiday accommodation that sleeps 2 to 6 in complete comfort.

Standing on the breathtaking South side of the Esk Valley, Unique Retreats enjoys glorious uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and North Yorkshire moors. The cottages and retreats are perfect for unwinding in complete luxury, set on the edge of the village, but close enough to walk to shops, pubs and restaurants for guests not to feel isolated.

There is a host of attractions nearby …. long sandy beaches, the picturesque resort of Whitby and the historic city of York along with walks to local waterfalls direct from the doorstep make this a perfect base for exploring.

Our Ethos

Underfloor heating and log burning stoves make the open plan living warm and toasty. Luxury kitchens are fitted with all the appliances and cooking utensils you may need…even the crockery and glasses have been selected for you to dine in style.

From welcome hampers, flat screens, ceiling surround sound entertainment, a comprehensive DVD and CD collection – for both adults and children along with a carefully selected library of books and games in all of the cottages, to complimentary WiFi, Sky + and Sky On Demand in selected cottages (please see individual properties for details) our cottages are all designed to help our guests relax and ease away the pressures of modern life.

We have insisted on the very highest quality materials, Farrow and Ball paints, and comfy settees and soft furnishings. Crisp white bedding, fluffy white towels, complimentary toiletries and a welcome hamper complete the package, with the romantic retreats having the luxury of robes and slippers for lazy days in. This is not just another holiday let – self catering does not mean compromise in quality, comfort or design. Our guests feel as if they are staying in a boutique hotel. It is the little touches that make the difference.

Names based on farmyard animals, we have Ewelands and Cowslip and also the Piggery, a beautiful cottage built in 1821 and painstakingly refurbished but keeping the originals features of beams, stone fireplace and quirky rooms. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms so friends and family can enjoy their own privacy, yet have time together in a truly perfect setting.
