Description

Set over three storeys, this contemporary cottage is situated just off Whitby’s famous Church Street. A perfect location with the beach, abbey, church of St Mary and many pubs, cafés and bars right on your doorstep, yet peacefully set back from the busy cobbles and quirky shops. Whitby is popular year round due to its many festivals and events, whether it’s the organised events such as the world famous bi-annual Goth weekender, steampunk weekends, music and folk festivals or just the wonderful atmosphere in the quaint fishing town, there is always something going on. Take an open top bus ride around the town to see what’s on offer, or take a boat trip in search of dolphins, seals and whales. Alongside this, Whitby attracts visitors from all over who love to sample the many bars, restaurants, cafés and tea rooms, as well as museums and galleries.
This is also the perfect place to make as your base for exploring the North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. Travel by steam train into the midst of ’Heartbeat’ country, or take a walk along part of the Cleveland Way as it snakes along the coast - a must for those who enjoy the great outdoors. The Cinder Track is another great walk in the area which leads you along a disused track through Hawsker to the beautiful Robin Hood’s Bay. Other wonderful coves and bays along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast include Staithes, with its links to Captain Cook, and Runswick Bay. For adrenaline junkies, you’ll find surfing, mountain biking, and quad bike and jeep safaris among the many activities around the area. Take a drive into the North York Moors and see some of the most amazing countryside in the country. The traditional seaside town of Scarborough is just a short drive away with its Sealife Centre, waterpark attraction and leisure village, or venture a little further and visit the walled city of York with its minster and National Railway Museum. Beach 300 yards. Shops ½ mile, pub 20 yards, restaurant 40 yards.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

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.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. 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'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
