Yorkshire Coast Cottages
If you are looking for a superb holiday destination at any time of year look no further than the Yorkshire coast. With 45 miles of spectacular Heritage coastline, where dramatic cliff tops give way to both secluded bays and vast award-winning sandy beaches, there is plenty of stunning scenery to enjoy.
The ever popular historic fishing port of Whitby shouldn't be missed with the atmospheric abbey towering above the town, and reached by climbing 199 steps. The town is rich in naval and literal heritage as the home of explorer James Cook and the inspiration behind the novel Dracula. The old town oozes charm with cobbled streets and independent shops. Here you can find a great variety of holiday accommodation from cosy fisherman's cottages, stunning contemporary apartments and elegant town houses.
Picturesque villages are dotted along the coast and steeped in maritime history with narrow alleyways and sandy coves which are well worth exploring. These village holiday cottages, perched on the hillsides overlooking secluded bays, are always popular, and if this is the type of property you are looking for, have a look at our accommodation in Sandsend, Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay, Ravenscar, Ruswarp, Aislaby and Runswick Bay.
For great beaches and a fantastic programme of events throughout the year, stay in one of the excellent resorts along the Yorkshire Coast. Scarborough is the original Victorian Spa resort and has some superb attractions including a castle, open air theatre and Spa complex, and a great shopping centre. Filey, with its elegant Edwardian architecture and 5 miles of sandy beach, is a more genteel seaside town. Further south is Bridlington with its 900 year old harbour and wonderful promenades. In all these towns you will find a great variety of restaurants, shops and facilities and of course traditional seaside fun.
The villages around Scarborough offer a more rural location and yet are close to all the amenities Scarborough has to offer. Have a look at Scalby and Cloughton.
