Reviews

Great location, clean and comfy. Would definitely book again.Mr C Miller - 22nd July 2016
Lovely cosy cottage. A big thank you to Ian and the team for a cottage changeover when the boiler went at our original property.Mr B S Rustell - 3rd May 2016
Coastguard cottage is beautiful the little extra touches the owner leaves make it so welcoming Sarah even brought flowers just after we arrived! Cottage extremely well equipped will be back and recommending to friends and family. I needed some information before booking and spoke to a young man who was extremely helpful.Mrs E Bucknall - 26th March 2016
The Coast Guard Cottage is an excellent location for exploring the local area and visiting the delights of Whitby. The parking space that comes with the cottage is a real bonus and of course the wonderful Botham's bakery is just next door!Mr S Skeldon - 4th March 2016
We had a great stay over the new year. We were met at the property by the owner who made us feel very welcome. A lovely welcome hamper and a free coffee in the bakery next door. This cottage is beautiful, could not have wished for a better place to spend the new year.Mr D Strickland - 30th December 2015
Very impressed with the cottage. First time booking with Ingrid Flute but won't be the last.Mirs F Brett - 16th October 2015
Excellent in every way. Great location. Very well equipped cottage. Very friendly reception by member of Botham's staff. Parking a real plus.Mr G Ellis - 24th September 2015
A marvellous accommodation right in the heart of Whitby.Mr A Smith - 22nd April 2015
The cottage was very well presented. The welcome bag from the bakery was welcomed. A bit noisy on the street but we expected that. Enjoyed Whitby.Miss C Blakeway-Phillips - 2nd April 2015

Area Information

Whitby
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. For more information on Whitby and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Coast Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
