Tucked on the hill-side of this stunning seaside town, Whitby Cottage is a perfectly traditional, beautifully restored 17th-century cottage for four very lucky guests!

Located right at the heart of this enchanting town, you’ll find getting out and about a total breeze, and will glimpse the delights of the town as you approach, whether by car or on foot. Entry to the home is down a small set of steps, and from the outset, the charm of the cottage is apparent. Stepping inside, the magnificent period paint colours and fabrics, alongside beamed ceilings, patterned furnishings and furniture of the time, will take you back hundreds of years!

Yet this renovation is anything but outdated, with fabulous contemporary comforts including a high-spec TV in each bedroom and the living room, a dazzling kitchen and superb modern bathrooms! Get cosy in front of the log burner as you admire the display cabinet and handcrafted monk’s bench tucked in the cosy corner!

Heading upstairs you will find two dazzling bedrooms, embodying the charm of the original home alongside a luxurious design. Both rooms are grand, with large double beds, TVs and big windows. One is also complete with a decorative fireplace and a cosy armchair, perfect for a little relaxation. There are also two gorgeous bathrooms, each equipped with a modern shower with beautiful monochrome designs in each, making you feel utterly pampered and at home!

In your lovely courtyard, you can take a perch on the bench and enjoy the fresh sea air and watching the world go by. With everything within walking distance, you’ll find this location very useful indeed. Whitby is home to some of the best fish and chips in the UK, with countless to choose from, as well as countless fabulous Yorkshire pubs in which you can try one of the county’s famous real ales!

A striking sight on the cliff-top, Whitby Abbey was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ setting, and its gothic ruins are still well worth a visit. For an active day out, Dalby Forest is just a short drive away and has some of the country’s finest mountain bike trails, as well as an Activity Centre with paintballing, Go Ape and much more!

  • Because of the lack of convenient parking in many areas, driving around Whitby is not recommended, especially in summer – but you’re within walking distance of all the main attractions!
  • Sorry, pets aren’t welcome at this property

Whitby is a charming seaside town of the east coast of North Yorkshire famous for its vampire legends and impressive whalebone arch. The vibrant River Esk splits the town in half, with the majestic Whitby Abbey on the East Cliff, a dazzling Gothic ruin steeped in history and the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’, and to the West is West Cliff Beach, with golden sands lined with beach huts. Climb the 199 steps to the Abbey and the Church of St. Mary for incredible views across the North Sea and watch the brightly coloured fishing vessels on the horizon!

North Yorkshire is one of the UK’s most beautiful counties, home to the two vast National Parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, and bursting with history and tradition. Across the two national parks, you’ll find dramatic landscapes like that of Malham Cove, incredible scenery at every turn and always a warm welcome.

There are two cities in the county: York and Ripon, the latter of which is, in fact, the oldest city in England. Both are deeply historical, teeming with glorious architecture including their Minster and Cathedral respectively, and winding cobbled streets. Meanwhile, the endless villages that can be found in nearly every valley are undoubtedly worth visiting.  Pop in for a pint and get to know the friendly locals at the village pub or try out the many quaint cafes.

Of course, you can’t leave Yorkshire without a taste of its famous parkin, Wensleydale cheese and rhubarb from The Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle! Yorkshire is also home to some of the country’s best breweries, including Saltaire Brewery, the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakstons and you can enjoy a fine curry throughout the county.

Dotted across the breath-taking landscape of North Yorkshire are a series of striking examples of former abbeys, mostly now ruins. The most famous (and deservedly so) are Fountains Abbey near Ripon and Bolton Priory at the southern tip of the Dales, right at the entrance to the National Park. Complete with a rather lovely café and ice cream shop and set on the riverside amid thriving forests and rolling hills, this is worth a visit for its magnificent location alone!
