Beautiful views, unsurpassed in Whitby. Very well equipped property. Beautifully decorated.
What a delight to see this lovely cottage had been decorated for our Christmas stay. Fab cottage, beautifully furnished. Went to the Magpie twice. Stunning views made it so special.
Second time around for us in Alice Cottage. Beautiful cottage with the best views in Whitby. Lovely to see Whitby all trimmed up for Christmas!
Great cottage, great times. Love Whitby. Hopefully be back again!
Beautiful cottage. We felt very at home here. Love its position - stunning!
Aesthetically very pleasing, with high standards of furniture and kitchen equipment. I always take a sharp knife when we have self catering holidays, but I needn't have bothered this time! I was impressed by the number of hooks provided and so puzzled at the paucity of coathangers in the wardrobe (5 in the main bedroom). I often find there are too few coathangers provided in cottages and so take ten or so with me. We loved the views from the cottage as did previous visitors.
Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops. There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms.
The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.
There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year.
