The photo’s on the website can’t compare to the real thing. Due South is beautiful!
Close to the town and abbey, it is just perfect.
Thank You

The Wilson Family



Due South once found lovely position, saves all the steps up to the abbey. A drink on the  balcony  in the evening sunshine then down to Mr Chips for dinner excellent. MR Chips well recommended, much more than fish and chips.
If we come back to Whitby it would have to be Due South

Our stay at Due South was splendid! The accommodation has great character - it will not be forgotten. We had everything we needed and more. It was wonderful to have everything we needed for breakfast. Our hosts Tom and Sybil were so welcoming and took great care in making sure that we understood how things worked including the safety features. We also enjoyed Toms stories about the manor house and the area, There were other nice touches like the coupon for Whitby abbey, books and pamphlets on the region and even DVDs available to watch. Thank you so much!

We had never visited Whitby before and will certainly return! We have had a fabulous week and Due South was perfectly located for our walks and cycling and also for visiting the beautiful town. The accommodation was charming and perfick containing everything we needed and was also very comfortable. The biscuits and milk provided by Tom and Sybil meant we were able to relax the minute we arrived. We had a wonderful week.

Brendan & Heather



Excellent  accommodation – well laid out and decorated, great location for touring the area and seeing Whitby itself. The bonus of off road parking is good. Never seen so many fish and chip shops in my life!!

We had a lovely week at Due South in very comfortable accommodation with lovely views. Best bits-shopping in Whitby every morning, watching the waves break over the pier and eating the best fish and chips ever from Mr Chips on Church Street.

Thank you for all your help Sybil.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, it’s a fantastic place you have here and it was such a nice feeling coming back to this home from home after enjoying days out in Whitby. A BIG  thank you to our hosts Tom and Sybil for the warm welcome at the start of the week.

If you are looking for a good meal we would recommend ‘Kam Thai’ and Mr Chips in a heartbeat. Many thank again and the best bit is that I only banged my head twice!!

Thanks for having us Chris and Sal

PS Chocolate Falls really does do the best hot chocolate in Whitby



Had a most enjoyable week here, very nice accommodation, very peaceful after long days out. Am going home with a huge amount of fossils which we have collected from Saltwick  Bay , Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend, Runswick Bay. Lovely walks on the Cleveland way, great fun crabbing in the harbour and plenty of window shopping. Thank you for a very comfortable week in your lovely well placed apartment.

PS if sea is rough, go and watch the waves crashing in at the East pier, end of Henrietta Street, absolutely mesmerising!!

Sybil & Tom

Had a great week in Due South, a lovely apartment and a warm welcome from Tom & Sybil. Due South could not be better placed for exploring Whitby and the view up river is wonderful. We had trips out to Staithes and Helmsley and loved both of them. Got some  great sunset photos too, a rare thing on the East coast!”

Thanks again for a great week, we would certainly recommend  Due  South to anyone wanting to stay in Whitby.

Gary, Kerry & Emma



Thank you so much for a wonderful flat. I’ve been so comfortable here for the last ten days. While I chose the flat for time alone, it was so spacious I was able to invite , first my mother , then an old friend to join me, and I was so happy to share this lovely space with others. While it rained every day, the sun also shone every day and the sunsets have been phenomenal. I very much enjoyed meeting Whitby people – including yourselves who were all so kind and interesting. I could not imagine a nicer holiday.

18 years since we last visited Whitby; the place is as pretty as ever though pleasanter during the week than a weekends when its over run  with the day trippers. The weather was better than forecast. We’ve seen Whitby in all its moods, biblical rain-eerie mists, but also blue skies and sunshine. We enjoyed the rolling English countryside- I now know the meaning of ‘ uphill and down dale’ loved Esk valley, Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and Scarborough suffering a bit, The obligatory Mr Chips fish and chips lived up to its billing. Also had  two  memorable meals in Bino’s on the harbour front. Nice atmosphere and good selection of second hand fiction at Beckets café on Skinner Street. It was great to have our lovely accommodation, so attractive and so well located to retreat to. I especially like the balcony and watching pigeons , seagulls and diving swallows----One of the best self catering  (of many!)places we’ve stayed in.

Angus & Ailsa Ferguson







Had a wonderful stay in Whitby, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the weather was fantastic with sunshine everyday. Due South is a charming attic flat, very comfortable & well stocked, very much enjoyed sitting on the terrace- an absolute joy, many thanks to Tom & Sybil for their hospitality.

Gail & David Traynor

I really enjoyed staying here, got a good view from the Terrace. Loved the beach, crabbing, & boat & bus trips are brilliant. Everything was brilliant.
Love Kyle Traynor

PS. Magpie café great for fish & chips + caters for gluten free diet.



Dear Tom & Sybil,

Thank you very much for the wonderful apartment! We enjoyed our stay in Whitby a lot. The weather was great, the scenery is stunning and there’s much to do. The flat was very comfortable, clean & so well situated.

Timon & Mara



Dear Tom and Sybil,

“Due South” is an excellent apartment, nicely decorated, with a great view. Whitby is very picturesque. What we liked most was walking the Cleveland Way(to Robin Hoods Bay, around Staithes).We had very decent weather. Also we would like to compliment Tom and Sybil on their garden, which is really beautiful.

We had a great time here- Thanks A Lot!

Had a lovely week here and never had to move the car once. Accommodation had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable.

Thank you

Janet David & Debbie



Due South has been an excellent base during our stay in Whitby. It is superbly equipped and very tastefully decorated. We found it very conveniently located with only a short walk to the town centre and the Abbey. As with previous visitors we found the town much better during weekdays after the day trippers had departed(& their litter!) and the little harbour area behind the shambles to be particularly relaxing.

If you want a change from fish & chips we recommend Greens restaurant & for a great day out – the railway!

Simon & Chris

Thank you for a lovely stay. Although we didn’t spend much time at the apartment due to being involved in the folk festival, we found it a very comfy base that really was home from home. Many thanks again.

Marie, Jonathon & Megan



My first time in Yorkshire and Whitby is one of the loveliest places I’ve ever been to. Here at Due South I felt home and completely at ease. Thank you for the warm welcome and for making this place so unique.

I will certainly be back to my home away from home (and I haven’t slept so well in a long time).




Due South is full of character. We particularly enjoyed our balcony and the view out to sea. I’m sure we’ve benefited from our daily climb from town up to The Ropery – Whitby is a very charismatic place and has not changed greatly from our last visit.

Mr & Mrs Alan Barrow



Thank you both for having such a quiet and peaceful place. Due South is a delight and a credit to you both. I managed to the last but 1 day before banging my head! Then did it twice! We loved every minute of our stay here.

Best wishes

Phil & Tracey Sherringham



Due South is a lovely quiet, cosy retreat in Whitby – we’ve loved being here. Thank you for your hospitality.

Kim & Dave Winspear



Absolutely beautiful, came for the goth weekend and there was enough space and storage for all our clothes. I have been coming to Whitby for the last 10+ years and this is the best positioned prettiest accommodation we have stopped in. We hope to use Due South again if Tom and Sybil will have us lol and we hope to sort a short family stay too. Place is clean, milk in fridge, very appreciated. View from windows, balcony are beautiful. Very recommended.

Lisa & Greig Miller



Due South is a truly lovely place to stay in Whitby. We only stayed a couple of nights but wish we could have spent longer here. The apartment is fantastic – Tom and Sybil have made it a cosy homely place to stay and it has great views from the balcony. The location is perfect for the abbey and lots of lovely shops and restaurants – we had an amazing seafood meal in Greens (a few minutes walk away) We would love to come back & will definitely tell our friends that this is the place to stay in Whitby.

Jane & Marcus



Tom and Sybil, we have thoroughly enjoyed staying in your apartment. It has been a place we have looked forward to returning to each day. We have loved all the little details that went into creating this unique space and you have been the most attentive of hosts, thank you.

We've had a fantastic week at Due South with a warm and friendly welcome.A very comfortable stay and sunny weather all week.

We have walked the Cleveland way coastal path from Saltburn to Scarborough and also part of the cinder trail from Cloughton to Robin Hoods Bay.

Having breakfast or dinner on the balcony is just lovely. We are very sad to be leaving but look forwards to a return visit.

Paul & Marion



We had a lovely week in Whitby, the accommodation was superb and very well equipped. We had a wonderful time revisiting old haunts but also brand new ones.

I spent many a happy hour on the balcony reading my book with a glass of red wine. Thank you Tom and Sybil

Susan Latham & Jack



We loved spending a week in Due South it was perfect in terms of location, amenities, comfort and privacy. We particularly enjoyed being only a five minute stroll from the old town as it meant we could sample most of the local pubs. Thanks Tom and Sybil for you welcome and hospitality. I hope that you will have us again.

Thank you for a lovely stay, had a great time and there was lots to do. We went to York, Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes. Also a great day out at Eden Camp.

Finished off with a great day out on Sandsend Beach PHEW

Due South made a super base for the Folk Week. Sybil and Tom provided some toys for our toddler-and he loved the pirate themed bedspread and pillow.
