Sue and Tony King from Derby,

Beautiful apartment. Well kept and very clean. Nice and central. Had a fab walk to Sandsend and back.

Linda and Chris Dale from Derbyshire,

The Old Surgery is a beautiful stylish little bolt hole in a quiet lane in the centre of Whitby. Well equipped and maintained, it was a joy to come back to after our Whitby outings. There’s a great bakers shop just around the corner and pubs and cafes are steps away. It’s just a 4 minute walk down to the harbour - a little longer coming back uphill but you can easily get taxis if needed. If you want accommodation on one level and want to be in the heart of things, the Old Surgery is just what the Doctor ordered.

Mrs Alison Wright,

A perfect, well equipped and stylish apartment for yet another snowy weekend.

Ron and Alison from Derbyshire,

A lovely snowy weekend in Whitby in a beautiful, warm cottage. So central and yet so quiet. Fabulous live music in the Little Angel and good beer!

Thank you very much for a wonderful relaxing stay. The cottage has had everything we have needed - if you don't fancy cooking your own breakfast try Cranberry Swamp cafe just around the corner.

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.
