Absolutely lovely!! Plenty of room for a family and brilliant location.

Miss Donna W,

Been to Whitby 7 times: the best property we've stayed at. Absolutely fabulous time here. Superb property, fantastic location. Enjoyed it that much booked again for 2021. Can't wait. Dog loved it to.

Previous Customer,

7th time at Geelong! Loved our week here as always. Weather was a bit wet some days. Hope we will be back soon x

Previous Customer,

Onto double figures on the number of Whitby holidays... Always enjoy the stay and the fantastic walks for keeping you fit (and an excuse for some fish & chips)! Beach a stroll away and great for dogs at this time of year. The new extension that good we never spent any time in the living room! Garden fab and excluded. The Fuzzy Dog Bakery a must for dogs!! Good food from Magpie and surprisingly good pizzas from Gino's on the corner. Cafe on Church Street very dog friendly with free sausages for furries. Landers butchers great for fresh meat and spar next door great for essentials. Thanks for a great holiday!! x

Previous Customer,

we love it there

Mr Michael K,

Excellent spacious accommodation very suites to our needs. Secure garden for our dog to enjoy.

Mrs Karen H,

As our holiday races to an end, we can safely say that we have a real love hate relationship with Geelong & Whitby. Love arriving - hate leaving! Weather has been super kind to us. Have spent some quality time relaxing in the town and explorings. Always something new to find. Today we will explore the cinder track at Sandsend , and the beach there. We've already booked for next year.

Previous Customer,

Fantastic house, feels like a home from home. Great location, on bus route into Whitby x4 if you get tired from walking. Would recommend Pie & Mash restaurant and The Fisherman's Wife, great views, lovely food. Would return to this house, I loved it. Thank you Geelong x

Previous Customer,

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Geelong. The house is well equipped and spacious so made for a home from home feel. The walk into Whitby is lovely as is the walk at low tide to Sandsend. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway to Pickering is a must, departing from Whitby train station. The White House Inn is fantastic and we spent 3 meals there during our stay. Very welcoming to dogs, our Cavapoo Milo was thoroughly spoilt and only 2 minutes away. Thanks for a great stay.

Swanser/Scaife family,

Really enjoyed our stay here. Had everything any family would need.

Mr Will G,

The owners of this property have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure people have a lovely experience when they stay here. The house is fabulous and the kitchen/diner/family room was a pleasure to spend time in. Leading out onto a very good sized garden which is safe and secure for our dogs which is very important to us. Lovely patio area to chill out on too. Kitchen has everything you could need and a very useful utility room too. There are lots of games provided amongst other things there which is very thoughtful. Scattergories was very popular! At the end of the road is a lovely public house/restaurant called The White House with a lovely beer garden looking onto the gold course and spectacular views of the coast. The centre is around a 15 minute walk, but beware of the 'incline' coming back up! Whitby is a very dog friendly place which was a massive bonus for us. Lots of places to visit and explore but just too little time. We have therefore booked again for next year and can't wait! A friend recommended Yorkshire holidays to us and I have to say they have been excellent to deal with.

Mrs Jackie W,

Wonderful holiday cottage. Out of town for quietness but a reasonable stroll in and bus stop and shops within 50 yards. Took a couple of days to get used to the unusual layout but then it works really well. Secure and secluded garden for toddler and dog. Beach not too far away but the cliffs around Whitby are quite steep so be prepared for a "stiff" walk back. Having ample parking is a real bonus, we got a Toyota RAV4 and a Nissan note on there with plenty of space for a third.Of all the cottages we have stayed in this is top of the list of ones we would return to.

Mr Stuart L,

A beautiful, spacious, well equipped home that offers a luxurious break for dog owners. Close to beach and dog friendly pub. We will definitely return to this very private and exceptionally clean, contemporary and comfortable retreat. First class.

Previous Customer,


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