Lovely fluffy towels, a good selection of mugs and my daughter loved the box of games. Fantastic location.

Ms Alison G,

We stayed at the Mistal in Whitby. This was rated 4 star however I would give it a 3 purely because the cooker didn't work and there were a couple of broken dining chairs one of which pinched my finger on the first day. There was also a slow leak coming from somewhere under the kitchen sink. There was no toilet roll on our arrival which would have been a nice finishing touch but other than that we had a lovely holiday and the cottage was very comfortable. A bit of a hike into Sandsend or Whitby but we like walking so that wasn't a problem for us.


Beautiful scenery, drives and restaurants.

Mrs J P,

Amazing location and well fitted out property. Nice garden with sea views.

Ms Alison G,

First Class!!


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.
