Description

The Old Bakery is right in the heart of Whitby in the centre of Church Street, one of the oldest parts of the town dating back as far the 1300s. This contemporary, luxurious apartment has been lovingly restored from an old back street bakery dating back to 1871, but the bakery theme still runs true throughout. Beautifully designed and with tasteful decor and furnishings throughout, it is set over three floors with a wrought iron staircase leading up to a peaceful roof terrace. Whitby Abbey, made famous by Bram Stoker’s Dracula, is just a stone’s throw away, and right in amongst a myriad of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes.

Walk out of the front door and step into the heart of the seaside town, with its quaint cobbled streets, numerous eateries and atmospheric harbour. Taste the wonderful fish and chips and work them off with an exhilarating cliff-top walk, or relax on the long sandy beach. Jump on the tour bus to make sure you don’t miss out on everything Whitby has to offer, or take a trip on one of the pleasure boats and enjoy a tour around the harbour and out to sea. There is always something happening in Whitby from the bi-annual Goth Festival to the Whitby Regatta, and their music festivals to the festival of Christmas.

If 3 miles of unspoilt beach isn’t enough, Whitby is also in a fantastic location to get out and explore the natural beauty of the North York Moors and The Yorkshire Heritage Coast.

The unspoilt fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay which nestles into the cliffs of the Heritage Coast is 5½ miles away. Other unspoilt villages include Runswick Bay, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Staithes. Each has its own story of pirates and smuggling to tell.

An abundance of walks and cycle tracks for ramblers and cyclists include the Cleveland Way, as well as the Esk Valley and its stunning scenery, best enjoyed from the windows of the steam train that travels right into the heart of the Yorkshire Moors National Park from Whitby to Goathland which is otherwise known as Aidensfield in the TV show ’Heartbeat’.
Other attractions for a day out include the Beamish Museum, Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land. The medieval walled city of York is just an hour away and is well worth a visit with attractions including the Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum. Parking is available for loading/unloading, and there are car parks nearby and a Park ’n’ Ride facility 1½ miles away, both at cost. Or for a car free holiday, why not take the train and use the tour bus for sightseeing! Shop, pub and restaurant 50 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.
