The Surrounding Areas

STAITHES - This quaint and unspolit fishing village consists of cottages huddled together on steep cliffs over looking a tiny harbour. Captain Cook lived here at the age of seventeen while he was an apprentice to a grocer and draper in a shop.

ROBIN HOODS BAY - Robin Hoods Bay on the coast off the Whitby to Scarborough road is a picturesque and historic village notorious for its smuggling history. Smuggling was rife and many of the buildings have secret passageways so that contraband could be passed secretly from the bottom of the village to the top without going outside. The narrow winding streets and alleys conceal many beautiful cottages. The haphazard positions of the cottages attract many photographers and artists.

RUNSWICK BAY - Eight miles north of Whitby, this attractive little seaside village with its white painted cottages and red roofed cottages perched in improbable positions on the steep hill side is a favourite spot sailing enthusiasts, water skiers and artists.

RAVENSCAR - From the high peak of Ravenscar you can take in the dramatic views of Robin Hoods Bay. This could be called the town that never was. A series of streets lead nowhere and there are a few houses dotted about.

Whitby

Local Amenities

Whitby offers miles of sandy beaches, fishing trips from the harbour and many specialists' shops filled with crafts, antiques, artist's shops, maritime memorabilia and handmade local jet jewellery. The town has two sides which is divided by the River Esk. Both sides are very different which provides a fantastic contract for all visitors. For food connoisseurs, Whitby has it all to suit varying tastes - award winning sea food restaurants, continental delights, olde worlde English tea rooms and traditional sea-shanty inns / pubs serving local produce. For those dining at home there are supermarkets and many local shops around the area. The main Post Office in Whitby is inside the Co-op on Langborne Road. A taxi rank is situated adjacent to the Tourist Information Centre. The bus and train station are only a short distance away.

Whitby is a small town which has its own character and picturesque charm based on its spectacular history as a seaport.

"What a great place"

This trip was to celebrate my fathers 80th birthday and we chose Whitby by recommendation from a friend. My mother has dementia so it's been several years now since they have been on holiday. The appartment is in easy walking distance from the town and lively harbour area. Seal view is lovely and my parents spent much time looking at the views from the window, the weather was fantastic...... Caroline left a birthday card for my father a lovely thought and a nice personal touch. There were a number of books on the local area to help plan our stay. The apartment was spacious, clean and very quiet. The only very small improvement I would suggest is the pillows are poor and could do with replacing and I missed not having wifi, Internet access.
My parents has a fabulous week, we went on the steam train to Pickering, newcomers day at Beverly races, walked on the sand at Scarborough and Robin Hood Bay. We ate in some great restaurants, the Magpie, the Quayside and Ragdale Hall.....
I loved the apartment, Whitby and Yorkshire and when we return I would definitely stay at Seal view again.

"The place to stay in Whitby"

Lovely well equipped third floor apartment with great view of the river & boat moorings. A plus is the undercroft designated parking space.

NYM steam train passes daily on the opposite side of the river. 10-15 minute stroll to centre of Whitby with a good choice of places to eat.

Stay coincided with Whitby Regatta week, great fun, as was the display by the RAF Red Arrows & the fantastic firework display the following evening.

Hope to return to Sealview in the not too distant future

"Fabulous apartment with great views"

We have stayed at Seal View on numerous occasions and always have a great time. The apartment is spacious with 2 good size bedrooms, bathroom and large lounge/dining/kitchen area. The apartment overlooks the River Esk and has Abbey views.

It is in a good location with a 10 to 15 min walk into town. We have never encountered any problems during our stays at the property. There is undercroft parking available for one car. I would definitely recommend Seal View to all ages who want a modern, well positioned holiday apartment in Whitby.

"nicely presented, great outlook."

Stayed 2 nights early January at end of our 7 week holiday. Wish we had seen this earlier as would have stayed at least 4 nights. Great outlook from Unit and easy walk to town. Most car parking was free in any case being winter months and plenty car parking available if you wanted to drive into town. The unit was nicely presented, plenty of heating for cold nights and had a great outlook over the water. Price - excellent value for money given what we were paying during our travels. Easy drive to Goathland (heartbeat fans). Only booked night before sat so thank you to owner and caretaker for making the effort. No wifi but good service area for phone/internet access if you have mobile.
