We are based in Whitby on the East coast of Yorkshire meaning we have exceptional knowledge of the region and the location of our properties. Established in 1970 we have been providing quality self-catering accommodation in this idyllic part of the world for over 40 years. The very high rate of returning customers is a testament, we believe, to the first-rate service that we provide.
If you’re planning on heading West you may be interested in looking at our sister site Red Rose Holiday Cottages. There you will find a portfolio of excellent self-catering accommodation throughout Cumbria and the Lake District, and Lancashire.
It is difficult to imagine another place on Earth with such a variety of environments than that available to you between the heather of the North Yorkshire Moors, the deep cut river valleys and substantial rock plateaux’s of the Yorkshire Moors and the sea along our glorious coastline. From the hubbub of Whitby, you are only a 10 minute drive from the quiet and beautiful coastal village of Lythe with its rich history and local walks.
Your taste may be a classic cottage in a quiet moorland village, perhaps Grosmont with its steam trains or an authentic fisherman's abode in bustling Robin Hood's Bay. You may select an original fisherman’s cottage in one of the historic yards of Whitby with its busy harbour, the famous 199 steps leading up to the Abbey, quaint and interesting shops or the beautiful cove villages of Runswick Bay and Sandsend. The cliff top walk from Sandsend on the edge of Whitby through Lythe, Runswick Bay, Port Mulgrave and on to the delightful fishing village of Staithes provides glorious views of this stunning coastline. Others may prefer a modern all mod-cons luxury harbour-side apartment on Whitehall Landing, St John’s or Union Mill in Whitby.
The Spa town of Scarborough offers a holiday for all; the beach for the youngsters as well as a tremendous promenade walk for the less young! A large shopping area with all of the big name shops, the Sea Life Centre and Scarborough Castle are just some of the attractions to be seen.
In terms of area, Yorkshire has nearly one third of England’s National Parkland housing the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and also some of the Peak District and includes two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). There are three sections of coastline in East Yorkshire that have been designated as ‘heritage coast’; North Yorks Coastline, Spurn Point and Flamborough Head. Yorkshire is the largest county in England and is divided into four areas (traditionally known as Ridings) which are North, South, East and West Yorkshire. This extensive county covers about 12,000 square kilometres and has a population of over five million.
So you can see that a holiday cottage in Yorkshire will open up this wonderful county for you to explore as far as you may wish. Whatever your needs, our local, friendly and knowledgeable staff will be delighted to discuss your requirements for an ideal location.
