Porthole Cottage is a lovely period character cottage situated in a small yard at the entrance of the old cobbled part of Church Street, a short walk to the nearest car park. Church Street is close to the old town of Whitby with its yards and alleyways, individual shops and cafes and the 199 steps leading to the iconic Whitby Abbey. Porthole Cottage is located in one of the many yards in this area giving you a haven of peace in a bustling seaside town.

There are two pretty bedrooms for you to relax in at the end of a fun filled day in Yorkshire.

Had a lovely break at porthole cottage, courtesy call from owner was very nice,have stayed before Will stay again,
We spent a week at Porthole Cottage which is the perfect base to explore Whitby and the surrounding Yorkshire coast and moors. The cottage is very well equipped especially the kitchen which has everything you could need if you choose to cater for yourself but equally the cottage is within short walking distance of lots of fabulous restaurants, cafes and pubs if you prefer to eat out. The location is perfect for exploring Whitby as it is very centrally located. It is situated in Clark's yard but it is quiet despite being just off Church Street which with lots of sea air and comfy beds ensures you get an excellent night's sleep. We hope to return to Porthole Cottage and would highly recommend booking a stay here.
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 standdominantly 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.
