The cottage was very comfortable and cosy, the view from the lounge is wonderful with lots to see, regular boats and fishing trawlers up and down the harbour. When the sun did shine the cottage was a sun trap in an afternoon.Mrs Janet Storey - 20th February 2017
Our second visit, looking forward to our next holiday in Whitby. Ingrid Flute: Very efficient and friendly staff.Mrs Veronica Ross - 3rd December 2016
Ideally situated in the centre of Whitby. The balcony off the living room overlooking the harbour gives the cottage special character and you can relax on the balcony both day and night-time. Having two bathroom/shower rooms is a bonus if you have 3 or 4 occupants. We have booked this cottage many times and it is likely we will again. Ingrid Flute: friendly and efficientMr Peter Turner - 5th September 2016

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.
