We found booking a cottage with Ingrid Flute very easy and trouble free. The staff when we collected the property keys were really helpful and friendly and had extremely good local knowledge. Seamstress Cottage is lovely and really well situated in Flowergate in the centre of Whitby. It is well furnished and extremely well equipped, everything you need for your break. We had a lovely time in Whitby!Ms Suzanne Duffy - 10th September 2018
We have had a lovely stay in Seamstress Cottage. It has everything you need and is situated in a lovely spot in Whitby. Our weather has been mixed but we have cycled from Hawsker to Robin Hood's Bay, visited Eden Camp, Castle Howard, Scarborough and a number of surrounding villages. Love Whitby!Steve and Suzanne, Deal, Kent - 7th September 2018

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.
