What to do in Whitby


This town is full of charm, with quirky cobbled streets and a rich history. It’s not surprising that many people visit Whitby to browse its boutique shops; including the renowned Whitby jet jewellery. Whitby is also home to annual events including the Bram Stoker International Film Festival and the Whitby Goth Weekend.

Perhaps most famous for its Abbey, no trip to Whitby would be complete exploring these ruins. The Abbey is found atop the East Cliff headland and can be reached from the town by 199 steps. The views are certainly worth the climb, and an audio tour can tell you the remarkable story of this spot as you explore.

Whitby is also well known for it’s links to Dracula. To find out more about this connection, be sure to visit the Dracula Experience at the seafront, as well as Bram Stoker Memorial seat. For more of the town’s rich history, stop by at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum. Here you’ll find a treasure trove of items including Cook’s letters, a model of his ship ‘Resolution’ and other interesting documents.



Nearby you can visit Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay, or Helmsley

 

Holiday Cottages in Whitby

 

Whitby is the perfect destination if you’re looking for a seaside holiday with plenty of character. Famous – in part – as one of Dracula’s old haunts, why not sink your teeth into a great choice of holiday cottages in Whitby? There are lots on offer, whether you’re looking for a historic property with excellent sea views, or pet-friendly accommodation with oodles of space.

 

The historic seaside town of Whitby is unique for its historic charm, a lure for families since Georgian times and still hugely popular with all sorts of visitors today. The town distinguishes itself as an iconic Gothic destination and was the landing spot for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. A cottage holiday is a great way to experience this top resort, giving you and the family the freedom experience this amazing town on your own terms.

 

Why go on a Whitby cottage holiday?

 

While every cottage is different, some are old historic buildings and a great choice if you’re looking to step back in time. In Whitby, history is very much alive – you could even say undead – and Whitby Abbey is just one of the historic local landmarks that were in the Dracula novel, as well as being definitely worth a visit in its own right for the stunning architecture.

 

For the more squeamish, you can give Dracula a wide berth with plenty more things to see and do in this beautiful corner of North Yorkshire. You might consider heading away from the seaside and enjoying a bracing hike along Cleveland Way, which offers some amazing cliff-top views as you head towards Robin Hood’s Bay.

 

If you’re looking for that authentic seaside holiday, Whitby delivers on every level. The Victorian-era Whitby pavilion always has something great going on, including theatre, festivals and art events. And, of course, you’ll find all the trappings of the British seaside, from charming little shops to amusement arcades and tea rooms, and, it’s widely acknowledged, the best fish and chips in the country.

 

Make the most of your trip to Whitby and choose your dream accommodation. With Whitby cottages, you can enjoy a holiday without the hassle, as you enjoy all the privacy and convenience of your own little hideaway by the sea.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Whitby To Rent.

Riggseys - verified booking

"We spent a week at this apartment with family and friends; there were 7 of us altogether and not once did we get under one another's feet because the apartment is so spacious. The décor and the furniture are of high quality and the furnishings are lovely to behold and comfortable. There are books and games to use. The kitchen is spacious and very well appointed, including dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. All that you could need is there. A rear garden which is steeply terraced is beautifully tended and flowerful with a summer house and seating. Although only one bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, all the bedrooms are so attractive that it was difficult to choose one. The most attractive part of the apartment are the picture windows taking up the whole of the lounge front wall, one of them overlooking the balcony which is laid to table and chairs. The view over the River Esk is mesmerising. One's eyes are constantly drawn to the view of the marina, the passing boats, the town, the railways station opposite where steam trains from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway as well as national railway trains pull in and out. From the balcony, one can see the fishing boats in the harbour, the swing bridge operating, the bustling town and the other way, the river and the new road bridge. A garage is included in the property - this is a rare find in Whitby. We parked one car in the garage and two cars on-street. Sometimes we could park on the road outside, sometimes we had to park a little farther afield but it was a particularly busy weekend when we arrived with several festivals going on. It was great being able to walk into town. It is a short walk from River Forge to the town centre and all of its lovely shops and restaurants and cafes. The welcome and care that we received was outstanding. The property is outstanding. It is the cleanest clean that I have ever seen in a holiday property. The property contains three sets of steep stairs, one to the living area, one to the first two bedrooms and one to the top two bedrooms. The bathroom and toilet are situated on the living area floor. Even those of us who get up in the night, didn't have a problem with having to go down two flights of stairs to the loo and back again. This is a property to which we wish to return because we felt 'at home'. The owners have done so much to make the place work and it does, on all levels."

"Our second stay at Gunpowder House which was as good as the first. It is an excellent, peaceful and private cottage in lovely surroundings. The garden was beautiful with autumn just arriving and the views are great. It was a bit chilly at night but the very efficient heating soon saw to that. The only minor downsides we can think of is the distance from where you park your car to the house and it is up quite a steep incline, which could be an issue for people with limited mobility. Having said that, you could park outside the front of the house to drop people and stuff off but the path is still a little steep though not too bad. There is no Wi-Fi but a there is good 4G signal. The welcome pack was minimal compared to other cottages we've stayed at but it's not a deal breaker. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and there are nearby walks to enjoy. Whitby is less than 15 minutes drive away and on the way in a stop at Sandsend is recommended. Other nearby local attractions are Runswick Bay, (check tide times first as when it comes in it's in!), and Scaling Reservoir. A bit further away is the village of Goathland, of course famous for being Heartbeat's filming location, and the North Yorkshire Moors. We will definitely be back again."

"I booked this holiday cottage for a weekend getaway with 6 girlfriends for my birthday, and it was everything that we could hope for, and more. Unusually for central Whitby the property comes with a garage which was very useful for late arrivals as they didn't need to drive round to try to find a parking space late at night. The décor is lovely, with lots of artwork of Whitby and the rooms felt like home from home, with comfortable beds. The kitchen was very well appointed and we were able to cook dinner on the Friday night and cooked breakfasts over the weekend, as everything we needed was provided. We were also very pleased to find that there was a dishwasher. The balcony overlooking the harbour was very popular for watching the world go by while having a cuppa or drinking Prosecco! The owner had left us presents on the table for us on arrival, and it is thoughtful touches such as this that helped to make our stay so good. We all had a fabulous time in a beautiful cottage with lovely views, and would definitely recommend it for a short stay or longer."

" The garage was one of the main reasons we booked this flat. Parking is an issue in whitby and as my parents are elderly it would have been nicer not to have had to search for a parking space all the time. Added to which the carpark up the road was closed. When we spoke to the people using it they said they never knew if they could use the garage or not but decided to take a chance. I would suggest a sign by the two key safes would be a good idea, assuming of course its not a matter of first to arrive can use, if the latter this should be stated on the website. Also publish the size of the garage. Other than this it is a lovely place and we made good use of the wonderful balcony, espicially as the sun sets opposite which made for some great photos. This just took the shine off for us as we felt we paid for something we never got. I am happy if you want to edit this review as the garage suggestions are for you to act on or not. "
