Reviews

1st Class

Mr Peter Bailey,

Lovely cottage, in a central location. High standard of cleanliness. Very bright and airy upstairs, however downstairs is a little cramped and very difficult for 4 people to eat at the tiny dining table. The outbuildings are very useful for storage and great to have the washing machine here. Ingrid Flute staff are very friendly if you need anything.

Mrs Amanda Procter,

Clean, fresh, stylish and cosy.

Mr Carl Roderick,

We have all had a fantastic time at Sea Dog Cottage. It is a cosy, homely cottage that had everything we needed. It's clean, fresh with lovely decor. It is central to everything and a comforting place to come back to after a day in the cold and wind.

Carl, Karen, Parka and Jackson - Midlands ,

Lovely property and thoroughly enjoyed are stay Overall though we had a wonderful time and the cottage was everything we wanted, so super pleased.

M Brown,

Whitby has been really lovely and the cottage is everything we could've asked for. I will definitely be recommending.

Martin and Anne - Blackpool,

We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Sea Dog Cottage, It has all the facilities you could hope for and we loved the comfortable beds. Immaculately clean and the decorations for Christmas and welcome pack were greatly appreciated. Can't think of a reason we wouldn't return.

Corinne, Lindsey, Richard and Bean,

Neil & Janet Smith,

Come for our anniversary, the cottage is perfect. Everything you want! Comfy bed and all the comforts of home. Will be back......

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.
