About this location
The Yorkshire region
The Yorkshire Coast on the edge of the North York Moors National Park is the perfect destination for relaxing and exploring. With many small costal villages and towns you will not go short of places to visit during your stay.
The historic fishing port of Whitby is now a popular holiday resort attracting visitors from all corners of the world. Situated along one of Britain's finest stretches of coastline, with cliffs, fine sandy bays and attractive villages, Whitby has been a port for more than 1,000 years and is still a seafarer's town today. It is unspoilt, bursting with character and quite unique and it has changed little since the days when the famous Captain James Cook lived and worked here. The traditional maritime town with its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach, is dominated by the cliff-top ruins of the beautiful Abbey. The narrow streets and alleys climbing down to the quayside still bustle, as they have done for centuries, and as folklore and tradition are very much part of the Whitby scene, visitors soon find themselves involved. A great place for a holiday or visit, Whitby is set among fine stretches of coast with spectacular cliffs, beaches and bays.

The House was beautiful and had a lovely welcoming feel. Our bedroom was luxurious and just what I needed after our long walks. Would recommend a stay here with a few friends to unwind. My other half tells me the games room was great although I never actually tried it out. Overall a very relaxing stay and will definitely be boooking to stay again.

Myself and friends stayed in Thistlebank last weekend and had an amazing time and not just because of the weather. The property was perfect and ideally located in the centre of Whitby so we could walk everywhere. With parking limited in the town we were lucky that the property had 3 parking spaces for our cars. We use all 6 bedrooms and the guys loved the games room with pool table and darts. The ladies enjoyed the bright and spacious kitchen and dining room and plenty of wine was drunk. As a last minute break and for just £1,000 for the 3 nights this was the perfect break in the most perfect of properties. We were lucky to find it through the tourist office in Whitby but have now seen it is available through tripadvisor so would recommend you take a look. We will be back.
