The property had wonderful views and great walks from the doorstep. All restaurants, shops and pubs easily accessible.

Mr F,

Whitby and the local area is one if our favourites in the UK. Lovely historic places, beautiful walks for all abilities, great seafood and pubs, and very friendly locals. As someone diagnosed as coaliac 5 years ago, proper fish and chips had become a distant memory. So, I was delighted that the Magpie Cafe go out of their way to cook safe, gluten free food on request. My first haddock and chips in over years was so good, I over-ate and could barely make the hill up to the Crescent! Perfect weekend break

Mr Tim P,

Absolutely loved it, the views really made it for me and the location was perfect.

Mrs Rachel B,


Area Information

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.
