Tate Cottage is a cosy two bedroom period cottage which is situated in an elevated position just off Whitby’s historic Church Street. Set back from the road and accessed by a flight of steps, it is away from the hustle and bustle yet only a 5 minute walk away from the cobbled streets of the old town with its numerous bistros, cafes, and boutiques. The famous 199 steps ascending to Whitby Abbey are only a short walk away and the lovely marina is situated opposite the cottage. Beautifully presented with lots of personal finishing touches, this charming cottage boasts many traditional features such as original fireplaces and a wood burning stove in the lounge for those cosy evenings. Views over the marina can be enjoyed from the bathroom and there is a secluded patio area where you can sit and take in the fresh sea air. Equipped with a modern kitchen and dining area this cottage is the perfect base for a small family or romantic break by the seaside.

What an absolute gem! We've had a fabulous time staying at Tate Cottage. We will absolutely be back!The Fullers - 16th September 2016
What a gem! Tate Cottage feels like you are in your own home rather than a holiday let. So cosy and welcoming, it's a wonderful bolt hole. There's everything you could possibly need in just the right place, very quiet and secluded, but just a few minutes from everything. We were very comfortable here.Jean and Keith - 10th September 2016
Had a really relaxing time here! Very cosy and everything we needed. Love the fire and little details. Hope to come back again soon.Theresa and Nick - 10th September 2016

Lovely stay at Tate Cottage. Relaxing and perfect location. Lovely touches.Gerry, Shaun, Grace and Ewan - 9th July 2016
Was superb accommodation. Was a very homely cottage with lots of character and tasteful decor but with all the modern comforts. The quality of the accommodation was apparent from the Web page and which led us to book with yourselves. We also particularly liked the ability to book a shorter break as many other accommodation websites only will you book for a week minimum which was too long for a first holiday with our newborn baby. Will definitely use your website to book accommodation again.Mrs L Robertson - 6th July 2016
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tate Cottage. It was so characterful and beautifully presented with all the modern comforts. Its location is perfect and an easy walk into the town centre. Thank you very much.The Robertsons - 29th June 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.
