Ingrid flute were incredibly helpful from start to finish. their local knowledge was brilliant and left me feeling very confident with my booking. cant wait to book again.Ms M Cartwright - 21st August 2016
A lovely little cottage hidden away in the centre of Whitby. Perfect location. Quirky and nice. We will book again! We loved Esk Cottage - great location and quirky layout. Perfect for a family of 4. Very clean and warm. Would highly recommend if you are looking for somewhere a bit different and don't mind steep, narrow stairs. Very pleased with our stay and the friendly staff at Ingrid Flute Holiday Cottages.Mrs Kirsten Norton - 15th June 2016

We absolutely love coming to Whitby for the Goth Weekend - I've booked through Ingrid Flute several times before and the properties have always been excellentMr Peter Hicks - 19th November 2015
Esk Cottage was a great central location from which to explore Whitby, the coast, and the moors. It is a cosy cottage. The only drawback was noisy music late on weekend evenings from the local pubs.Miss M Marshall - 24th August 2015
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.
