Cherish the past. Dotted around this 17th century cottage are touches of brilliance and dedicated restoration that will leave you spellbound. Truly unique, truly exceptional. Luxury, magnified through the lens of history.
This is a restoration like no other, carried out with love and an attention to detail that is truly above and beyond. The owners have researched and restored period paint colours, furnishings and fabrics to reawaken the cottage’s past, without clutter, and with an added dose of luxury.
You’ll be charmed by the traditional Salt Box carved into the alcove recess, the beautifully restored period display cabinet, beamed ceilings and a handcrafted monks bench. You’ll feel at ease with the capacious scale of the rooms, the light and airy feeling somehow weaving through this ancient cottage.
You’ll enter through the lower ground floor and find a sitting room with a choice of aged leather and classic linen sofas, stone floors, wooden beams and a wonderful wood burner hinting at cosy evenings in, and the classic handcrafted monks bench. The magnificent kitchen with gas range cooker is complemented with a butler’s sink and another monks bench.
Little touches of history - a barometer, a pipe rack there, give nods to the building’s past and you’ll soon be imagining who lived here in years gone by. Come the festive season, the sitting room is beautifully bedecked with a Christmas tree bringing seasonal cheer for celebrating guests.
Setting the scene for Whitby’s historic tales, step out for a short wander to explore the town and harbour. Cast your net further and dive into the sheltered moorlands of the Esk Valley, the astonishing sea of purple heather in the North York Moors, or the dramatic towering cliffs and sheltered coves of the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast. Know that a roaring log fire and a cosy sofa and armchairs await at your home away from home.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Upstairs, the historic yet understated theme continues and you’ll find two grand bedrooms with luxurious linen dressing very comfortable beds. There are two high quality bathrooms complete with fluffy towels too.
We stayed at Bagdale Cottage over the Christmas period. What an amazing property! The cottage has been recently renovated and its' old characteristics have been exposed - and enhanced - beautifully, as shown in the photo album left for guests to see. What a transformation! Absolutely beautifully renovated throughout. From the bedding, soft furnishings and furniture to the Christmas decorations - everything was high quality, making our stay in Whitby so much more enjoyable. The Christmas gifts were a lovely surprise. Everything a guest would require during their stay was provided, though guests will need to remember to bring their own shower gel/hand wash/kitchen detergents - all available locally if you do forget. Located just a minutes walk from the little cobbled streets and delightful shops that Whitby offers - this really is a fabulous little gem of a property. Highly recommended and will definitely return.
Spotlessly clean, very comfortable home from home.
Would definitely book it again!
Lovely cottage and very nice and helpful owner, who dealt with a slight problem we had straight away.
Beautiful cottage, had a lovely stay with fantastic weather. The Italian and the tiny burger place over the bridge were both great
A delightful cottage full of character, it's like stepping back in time. Everything you need so clean. The beds are warm and comfortable and the log fire is lovely.
Thank you Russell and Jill, have had a fabulous 2nd visit, cottage as gorgeous as ever. Love it's proximity to Whitby shops, restaurants etc. Hope to return for a 3rd visit.
Love Whitby, loved this cottage, a perfect holiday.
