Self Catering Accommodation and Holiday Cottages in Whitby

What do you look for when planning a holiday? If it's fantastic food, the opportunity to step out of the rat-race and enjoy a slower pace of life, and a wealth of culture and excitement, you should definitely add Whitby to your list of places to visit. The North Yorkshire coastal town has been attracting tourists since the Georgian times, and its centuries of history can be seen in the genteel buildings and weathered harbour walls. Getting to Whitby couldn't be easier whether you drive via the M1, or leave the car at home and take the train. It won't be long before you're breathing in the fresh sea air, listening to the cry of the gulls and letting your cares wash away on the tide. Read more

About Whitby

Whitby is divided by the River Esk. It flows through the town towards the ancient harbour, which is still in use today. Cobbled streets, sunny courtyards, quirky fishing cottages, a busy market, and no end of boutiques and shops make up the town centre. There's nowhere better to spend a morning browsing and having coffee.

Locals are justifiably proud of Whitby's impressive, history including its most famous son, the explorer Captain James Cook. Your reward for scaling the 199 steps to Abbey Headland is a stunning view of the ocean and town view. Once you've caught your breath, St Mary's Church awaits, along with Dracula's grave, and Abbey ruins. Stop in at the Abbey Visitor Centre to learn more about these fascinating buildings.

Whitby has something for everyone, regardless of age and interest. Whether you're visiting a historic building, trying your hand at rowing on the River Esk, relishing in the serenity of Pannett Park, or exploring the coastline and moorland on foot, bike, or horseback, or even attending the annual Whitby Goth Festival you may need to add a few extra days to recover! You couldn't ask for more from a holiday destination than Whitby offers, so come and experience this gorgeous corner of Britain for yourself.
