About this location
The Yorkshire region
North Yorkshire is one of the most picturesque and diverse areas in the whole of England. The area caters for a variety of interests whether it be walking on the moors or looking for fossils at low tide. Fishing trips from Whitby harbour or just a sea trip seal spotting are popular pass times. The area is littered with numerous coastal and rural vilages all with there own unique character.
ROBIN HOODS BAY - Robin Hoods Bay is located 5 miles south of Whitby just off the main Whitby - Scarborough road and was once the busiest smuggling community on the Yorkshire coast. A maze of narrow passageways and tunnels meant the contraband could be moved from the bottom of the village to the top without detection. At low tide you can explore rock pools for marine life and is one of the best places for fossil hunting in Great Britain.
RUNSWICK BAY - Runswick Bay is situated 8 miles north of Whitby and is a pretty seaside village frequented by sailors, skiers, artists and holiday makers alike. The village is split into two parts - one part on the cliff top and the other older part down a steep 1in 4 road on the sea front.
STAITHES - Staithes is located 10 miles north of Whitby and in a former life was one of the largest fishing ports in the north east of England. Today it is a sleepy picturesque little fishing village and a popular destination for the amateur and professional geologist alike. The coastal area is known as the dinosaur coast being of the middle and lower Lias period.
GOATHLAND - Goathland situated 9 miles inland from Whitby up on the North Yorkshire moors and is famous as Aidensfield in the ITV series Heartbeat. It can be reached by public transport, either by bus or by steam train on the North Yorkshire Moor Railway. Explore the village and then pop into the "Aidensfield Arms" for refreshments before the return trip to Whitby.
Whitby is situated at the mouth of the river Esk. It is divided into the East side and the West side by the river. A swing bridge connects the two sides and is swung open at high tide to let fishing boats and yachts through into the upper harbour.
The East side has the old cobbled streets, Whitby Abbey, St Mary's Parish church and the 199 steps, the Lifeboat Station and the Old Market Place. On the West side at the waters edge are the fish markets where the Whitby fishing fleet lands its catch and all along the waterfront wine bars, pubs and restaurants are located. Further back from the harbours edge antique shops, tea rooms and more restaurants can be found.
Whalebone Arch is situated on the headland on West Cliff and the bones that make up the arch were a gift from Whitby's twin city of Whitby, Ontario, Canada. A bronze statue of Captain Cook is adjacent to the Whalebone Arch and is usually found with a seagull sitting on his head admiring the view. Whitby Pavillion Complex is nearby where theatre shows, dancing of all styles, music concerts and much more can be enjoyed.
Pannett Park, Whitby museum and gallery were a gift to the town from local solicitor Robert Pannett. The museum contains, amongst other exhibits, Captain Cook artefacts and information about Whitbys whaling past.
An open top bus tours around the town for most of the year visiting all the major tourist attractions. Or step back in time and have a ride on "Elizabeth" a vintage steam driven bus, and visit Whitby's attractions at a more leisurely pace.
Many "themed" weekends and special events take place during the year including Goth weekends in Spring and Autumn, Northern Soul weekend in July, Whitby Regatta in August - one of the oldest sea regattas in England where teams from Whitby and Scarborough compete and the Whitby Folk Festival also in August where musicians can be found playing on virtually every street corner.
Captain Cook Memorial Museum is located on Grape Lane and is housed in the building he lodged in while training to be a seaman. Two of the vessels he used on his long journeys of discovery to Australia, the Endeavour and the Resolution, were built in Whitby.
Bram Stoker was inspired to write his classic novel Dracular while staying in a house on the West Cliff in Whitby, and many other authors including Wilkie Collins, Lewis Carroll and Charles Dickens have all visited Whitby for inspiration.
Whitby is one of only two places on the east coast where you can see the sun set over the sea, strange but true.

"Tucked away but superbly located for all of Whitby!"
I am reluctant to write a review because My family and I absolutely LOVE this cottage and the more people we tell how lovely it is the less chance we have of it being available!!!
But I must do it justice for the owners; Albert & Jill. It is quite simply our favourite cottage in Whitby (and I have lost count of how many we have stayed in!).
We arranged a last minute stay and the owners were extremely helpful. The location is perfect, tucked away in the paddock, no more than a few minutes walk from anywhere in central Whitby. Abbey View is like a home from home with a very cosy lounge, lovely bedrooms and super kitchen with possibly everything you might need! It simply felt like a home and not a holiday rental. We hope to return soon!

"Fantastic cottage in excellent location"
Have just returned from a short break in Whitby and found Abbey View Cottage to be ideal for our needs. Lovely cottage which felt very homely and was very clean. Location was excellent as it was very close to the centre but not so close that you can hear all the night life. Would love to return.
Only negative was that it was difficult to find as some of the roads are one way and we seemed to go round in circles for a while.

I stayed at the Whitby cottage with my family. It is a really pretty cottage in the centre of Whitby. The rooms were lovely and the bedding was nice and fresh. The kitchen had everything you could possible need. Finding the cottage was a little difficult so best recommend to ask for directions as it is one way streets. There is no parking but there were plenty of car parks and street parking around.
We have recommended this cottage to our friends and if we go to Whitby again this is definitely where we will stay.
