Reviews

Ideal location (I arrived by train). Great view, value for money.

Mr B Reay,

Thank you for a lovely time!! The location was perfect! Views of the Abbey ruins from the cottage was a real bonus and being close to town and the bus stop made getting from place to place very easy. Cottage had everything I needed and was very cosy! Historical information about Whitby in the file was very useful especially as I had never been to Whitby and many of the museums and art galleries were closed - although luckily the Abbey visitor centre was open unusually on Christmas eve which made for a great visit! I will definitely use Yorkshire Holiday Cottages again - and have recommended you to many people already due to my very positive experience. Staff who I spoke to on the phone and when I needed help to open the safe lock were all very friendly and professional!

Mrs Dawn Parsons,

Area Information

Whitby
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.
