Holiday cottages and self-catering accommodation in Whitby
The seaside town of Whitby, with its Blue Flag beaches and delicious fish and chips, is one to head to if you like your holidays traditional. Split into two parts by the River Esk, you’ll find a variety of things to do on both sides of the river, including the ruined 13th-century Gothic Whitby Abbey. Perched on the East Cliff, it looks out to the dramatic North Sea and was the inspiration for Dram Stoker’s novel, ‘Dracula’. If that’s too scary, climb up the 199 steps of the Church of St. Mary, followed by a trip to the Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Cook’s former abode.
Jump on the heritage steam train of the NYMR railway and discover the breathtaking scenery of the North York Moors with the weight off your feet. Beach babies should head to Whitby Pavilion with its beautiful sea views and fabulous shows, and to the sandy beach where cool ice creams and sandcastle-building will delight all ages. You're also in a prime location to explore the rest of Yorkshire's stunning coastline, including Sandsend on the outskirts of the town, and beauty spots such as Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes further afield.
If you are looking for a coastal holiday, come and feel the sea breeze at one of our Whitby holiday cottages, where you can grab your flip flops and be at the sand in no time at all.
