A Special Occasion in Whitby

Hi, I'm Dawn, the Property Maintenance Supervisor here at Ingrid Flute's Yorkshire Holiday Cottages and I wanted to tell you why I believe my beautiful home town of Whitby is the perfect setting for a special occasion.

Whitby and special occasions should literally go hand in hand. The sheer history, magic and ambience of the town is why a lot of people choose to get married here, myself included, just a few days ago on January 25th.

There are so many venues, bars and beautiful photo opportunities that can literally make any occasion into a fantastic and memorable time. We chose to have our wedding reception at the Middle Earth Tavern on Church Street, just across from the marina. It was the perfect venue for us and the views across the Esk were beautiful at night. All of the team from the Whitby office came along for a night of dancing, fun and food. It was so lovely to get everyone together, we're a close knit team so it was wonderful to share such special moments with them such as our first dance and cutting the cake.

We have some beautiful cottages for families and friends to stay in so that everyone can enjoy that special time with you. My husband and I booked to stay in one of our cottages on our wedding night as a little treat. We chose to stay in Sea Dog Cottage which is a charming two bedroomed cottage set just off the cobbled part of Church Street in Whitby's old town. Close to all the traditional local pubs, bistros, boutique shops and cafes. Plus the famous 199 steps which lead up to Whitby Abbey are just a short walk away for a refreshing walk the next morning.

Unbeknown to us, my colleagues at Ingrid Flute's had decorated the cottage for our arrival, here are a few pictures...
