Harbour Cottage, an old fisherman’s cottage dating back to the 18th century, provides comfortable accommodation for couples and families alike. This terraced property enjoys fabulous views over the harbour and marina, and boasts a sitting-out area to the front, allowing you to sit and watch the world go by. Popular with visitors all year round, Whitby is well-known for its long sandy beach and delicous seafood that can be enjoyed whatever the weather. Whitby Abbey, with its 199 steps, is just a short stroll away, and is said to have been inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ’Count Dracula’. Its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to enjoy the beautiful views. This bustling fishing town offers something for everyone, from quaint backstreet cafés and pubs, to 3 miles of sandy beach along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. Keep your eye out for the Whitby Goth Weekend, Bram Stoker International Film Festival, Whitby Regatta and much more.

As well as sea fishing and boat trips from the harbour, perhaps take a steam train ride and travel across the moors calling at Goathland, home to the TV series ’Heartbeat’. The North York Moors National Park provides some breathtaking walking and cycling routes, and the Heritage Coast takes you back to the times of smugglers and pirates in bays such as Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes. The coastline is very picturesque with high cliffs and rocky shores. Follow the cliff top path for over 30 miles and explore many coastal resorts and villages along the way. A little further afield is the famous seaside town of Scarborough, or spend the day in the medieval walled city of York, with its cobbled streets, National Railway Museum and the Jorvik Viking Centre. Beach 600 yards. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 100 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.
