Description

Located in the heart of Whitby’s East Cliff and above the cobbled street of part of the oldest area in Whitby. Bridge View has a fantastic view overlooking the iconic swing bridge and couldn’t be any closer to the heart of this bustling, Gothic town and situated in Whitby’s historic Clarks Yard which was built in 1640. Upstairs on the first floor there is a large living room with great views perfect for watching the boats going in and out of Whitby through the swing bridge. Guests at Bridge View are offered a discount at the ice cream shop at the front of the building. It forms part of a quiet, idyllic cluster of fishermen’s cottages and Clarks yard was a former winner of the Whitby in Bloom competition and is considered one of the prettiest areas in Whitby. There are 3 miles of golden sands to explore, cobbled backstreets with Jet jewellery, Gothic shops, bars, cafes and restaurants galore. Each year, Whitby adds to its festivals and events such as the Whitby Regatta and the famous bi-annual Goth Weekenders where everyone is welcome. Take a pleasure boat ride out to sea for a unique view of the historic abbey and church of St Marys or climb the 199 steps to the top for an amazing view across the town. The abbey is where Bram Stoker got his inspiration for his classic novel ’Dracula’ and the steps are where the beast ran after the ship was wrecked on nearby Tate Hill Beach.

Head out into the North York Moors National Park for some of the most breathtaking countryside in the UK. The area is a delight for walkers and cyclists and the tracks and trails stretch for hundreds of miles. For something different why not head out into ’Heartbeat’ country with a ride on a steam train into Goathland. If you are looking for something different why not visit Eden Camp, a live museum taking you back to wartime Britain. Less than an hour away is the medieval walled city of York. Spend time exploring the many streets or visit the National Railway Museum or the Jorvik Viking Centre. The picturesque but hidden bays of Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes allow you to step back to the time of pirates and smugglers along the coast. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
This property can be booked together with Crystal Cottage (ref UK2216) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.
