A delightful Grade II listed terraced holiday cottage, located in the historic fishing town of Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. Taylor’s Cottage is situated in the heart of this bustling seaside town but enjoys a peaceful setting in one of Whitby’s most tranquil ’yards’. A wonderful tourist destination with a wide variety of activities and amenities. Whitby is a year round destination with a burgeoning nightlife and boasts a range of top-class restuarants and wine bars alongside the traditional cafés and pubs. Located on North Yorkshire’s own Jurassic Coast, this beautiful stretch of sand reaches 35 miles from Staithes to Flamborough Head and is famous for its fossils and Whitby Jet. It is a great place to go fishing and sea angling or look at sea creatures in the rock pools - when the tide allows. You can walk from the cliff top along the Cleveland Way to the idyllic Robin Hood’s Bay and take the bus back.
A gateway to the North York Moors, Whitby town is a marvellous base from which to explore the pretty moor villages such as Goathland and Grosmont. In summer the North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs steam trains from Whitby to the delightful market town of Pickering. Whitby’s favourite son is explorer Captain James Cook and Whitby is well known as the inspiration behind the setting for Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’. There are museums and ghost walks and a host of delightful gift shops where you will find something original to take home. Beach 70 yards. Shops 500 yards, pubs 30 yards and restaurants 130 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.
