Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

Whitby is a quaint historic fishing town on Yorkshire's picturesque East Coast.

The Yorkshire coast is one of the country's most spectacular coastlines. There are dramatic cliffs towering above the sea. Fossils of ammonites and other sea creatures can be found in the area.

Whitby is nestled between the pretty villages of Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay, and close to many other interesting old towns that are dotted along the coastline.

Staithes - This quaint and unspoilt fishing village consists of cottages huddled together on steep cliffs over looking a tiny harbour.

Robin Hoods Bay is a picturesque and historic village notorious for its smuggling history. Smuggling was rife and many of the buildings have secret passageways.The narrow winding streets, alleys and many beautiful cottages attract photographers and artists.

The Surrounding Areas include:

Scarborough, about 15 miles away, is an old fashioned seaside resort which retains much of its victorian grandeur. There is a castle which dominates the town, the victorian Spa complex, unusual trams running up

and down the cliffs, the Sea Life centre, plenty of seaside amusements and donkeys on the beach.

Goathland is a village situated in the North Yorkshire Moors due north of Pickering, off the A169 road to Whitby. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and has the advantage of having a station on the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway line.It is famous as Aidensfield, the 1960's setting for the popular ITV police series Heartbeat.

Runswick Bay is 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 for sailing enthusiasts, water skiers and artists. It is an unusual village with winding narrow streets leading to cottages perched at the waters' edge.

The Cleveland Way is 109 miles / 176 Kilometres of ever changing and beautiful landscapes and scenery. It is

an invigorating walk, and any part of the route is the ultimate stress beater.

The route follows a horseshoe line of great variety around much of the beautiful North York Moors National Park. Starting from the attractive market town of Helmsley, the Cleveland Way heads across the inspirational, and sometimes vibrant heather Moorland of the North York Moors, through Whitby, before reaching the coast at Saltburn.

Whitby

Whitby, at one time the sixth most important town in England outside London, has a fascinating past. See its historic fishing port and experience its intriguing past with fishing, shipbuilding, geology and… Dracula.

Whitby offers miles of sandy beaches, donkey rides, fishing trips from the harbour and many specialists' shops filled with crafts, antiques, artist's shops, maritime memorabilia and handmade local jet jewellery. The delightful historic old town has cobbled streets and pan tiled cottages.

Whitby is divided in two by the River Esk. St. Mary's Church and Whitby Abbey are on the Eastern headland.

Although the Abbey is accessible by road, the able bodied should experience climbing the 199 steps to the summit! The Abbey's history dates back to 675AD when St. Hilda founded a monastery. The present structure is from 1078AD and is now in the care of English Heritage.

Whitby has associations with Bram Stoker, as he based much of his Dracula novel here whilst staying in Whitby in 1890. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better know as Lewis Carroll) also set some of his work and poems in Whitby, as he was a regular visitor.

Whitby's history includes connections with whaling and the explorer Captain James Cook.The town's historical past is revealed in monuments that dominate Whitby's East and West Headlands and the Harbour. The monument to Captain Cook includes a carving of the Resolution, one of Cook's four ships.

For 80 years (1753-1833) Whitby's fishermen were engaged in whaling. The whale jaw bone arch on the West Cliff was presented to Whitby by Norway in 1963.

Whitby has a fish market on the quayside which operates as need and opportunity arise.The ready supply of fresh fish has resulted in an abundance of "chippies" in the town, including the Magpie Cafe which Rick Stein has described as the best fish and chip shop in Britain.

The Esk Valley Steam Railway from the heart of Middlesbrough to the historic seaside town of Whitby, passes through the North York Moors National Park and serves 15 stations along the route. The Steam Train stopping at the station is is a delight to watch from the apartment.

Pannett Park in the centre of Whitby is adjacent to Whitby Museum and Art Gallery which has a free Children's wonderland. Whitby Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool is a short walk away.

Whitby has lovely old bustling pubs and award winning restaurants. Supermarkets and shops are also within walking distance.

Coliseum Cinema - Situated on Victoria Place, Whitby, cinema, theatre, exhibitions and cafe-bar.

The town is also close to the scenic North York Moors National Park and the unspoilt fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay.

Walking in the WHITBY area! There is a lot of excellent walking in the North York Moors National Park area. Many of the best walks are part of the long distance footpaths which cross the area, there are many shorter and circular walks on the door step.

“Wonderful apartment in great location”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2011

Stayed in the Captains Retreat during December 2011 and can highly recommend it. Lovely apartment with everything you could possibly need, in a fantastic location that is an easy five minutes walk into town. Convenient for all sights and easy to 'pop back to' during excursions out. Couldn't have asked for anything more, thank you so much. Carolyn and Paul Jennings.

Thanks for your kind comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
