Northern England region

Visit "" for very good information regarding Whitby and the surrounding area.

The Historic City of York with a Designer Outlet "McArthur Glen" on the outskirts is only about an 1hr away with Robin Hoods Bay & Scarborough just a short drive South.

Heart Beat Country, Goathland is only approx' 20 minutes drive away.

8 miles to the North is Runswick Bay, a realtively unknown & beautiful tranquil place and excellent for walkers as it forms part of the Cleveland Way.

There are some wonderful eating houses around Whitby, "Harrys Wine Bar" on the Harbour side is very good, while further a field 1 mile out on the moors road heading towards Middlesbrough is "The Stables" with excellent food.

Not forgetting "The Magpie" famous fish & Chip restaurant just a 2min walk away and Whitbys latest "Witherspoons" which is great for breakfast or a good quality cheaper meal with the usual top branded drinks at knock down prices.


Whitby is ideally located for walking and visiting local towns and resorts in the vicinity.

The 13th Century Historic Abbey Ruins on the Cliff top overlook the town and Harbour. There are excellent Wine Bars/ traditional ancient Public Houses and of course amusements for the children with us and within us.

Twin Piers protrude from the harbour and after restoration work both can now be accessed. You can go fishing from the Piers, or Boat fishing from the harbour by private charter for approximately £35pp.

Why not venture along the Cliff top beyond the Abbey to Saltwick Bay, here you can get a bite to eat & drink and perhaps go "winkling".

Grosmont only a short drive away welcomes you with a Steam Railway heading to Pickering and sometimes serves lunch onboard on Sundays, this is a journey through beautiful countryside.

There are also occasional Steam engines leaving from Whitby in Summer months and a Santas Special during the Xmas period.

"The Very Essence of Whitby"

A delightful cottage, close to the harbour yet peaceful (except for the cries of the eponymous gulls, of course). Car park across the road. Very well appointed and comfortable. Exactly as described… More

Grateful of your kind & swift review of Gulls Cry, so soon after leaving from your break.

It's always a great pleasure and makes me so proud that guests feel we have done enough to make them want to revisit Gulls Cry, rather than holidaying elsewhere in Whitby.
Many thanks for a really appreciated review.
