We had an amazing holiday this week. The cottage and location have been perfect. Lots of wonderful memories have been made - we will definately be back. Thank you.

Previous g,

Cottage is outstanding in all respects. Everyone in our party enjoyed our stay. First time we've stayed at Celebration Cottage but will definitely be staying again. Thank you.

Harris family,

We had a lovely short break at Celebration Cottage. Fabulous location in the heart of Whitby and just a short stroll to the harbour and across to the Abbey. The weather was perfect for April and we really enjoyed our stay. We used the facilities in the cottage to eat in a couple of nights and treated ourselves to fish and chips at the Star in the Harbour.We would definitely recommend.”


Area Information

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.
