An exceptional apartment in a very desirable location.

Situated in the heart of Whitby on Haggersgate, just a stone's throw away from the harbour.

Comfortable flat very close to shops and harbour. However, those who prefer a quiet location should be aware that it is directly opposite a very noisy pub with live music.

Lovely clean Powder Keg. Once again we have had a wonderful holiday with our grandchildren. The weather has been good so we have been able to go onto the beach where the children have been able to hire body boards and surf boards. We have managed to get our steps in walking the cinder track from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay. The last part of my Challenge 42 walk for One by One. We have also managed to walk both piers on an evening with treats of great sunsets. Why do we share, because we care.

At last government acts with common sense & finally stops persecuting the hospitality section who I find to be the most efficient at organising a sterile environment. Lovely located apartment. Great homely feel convenient for everything Whitby has to offer. Everything we needed and more. Comfortable, homely and cosy. great beds and bedding for a good nights sleep. Spent our 31st anniversary here in style. Thank you for a wonderful break.

Thanks for getting Powder Keg ready for us to watch the rugby league. Powder Keg is a great & comfortable base for us to enjoy a great weeks break, exploring Whitby & the surrounding area & walking some of the Cleveland way.

What a fantastic week we've had. Enjoyed all the more because its been over a year since we've been to Whitby (because of Covid) and also the fact that the Powder Keg is so comfortable & well equipped, its a proper home from home and we would love to back ! Thank you.

As usual Powder Keg is a lovely base for a Whitby holiday. The weather has been amazing giving us chance to walk, the old railway track from Hawsker, along the beach to Sandsend, and part of the Cleveland way to the lighthouse where we found a delightful coffee shop. Returning to Whitby for delicious fish and chips and able to chill at Powder Keg. A most enjoyable break.
