Enjoy the myriad of attractions in Whitby, or venture slightly further afield to the fishing and smuggling villages of Runswick Bay, Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay.
The Old Coach Stable is set right in the heart of Whitby, in the centre of Church Street, one of the oldest parts of the town dating back as far as the 1300s. This contemporary, luxurious, detached cottage has been lovingly restored since its days as a coach house for The Black Horse - but the Coach Stable theme still runs true throughout. Beautifully designed and with tasteful decor and furnishings, it is set over four floors, where a wrought iron staircase leads up to the fabulous mezzanine dining area and out onto the sun trap roof garden. Whitby Abbey, made famous by Bram Stoker’s Dracula, is just a stone’s throw away, and right amongst a myriad of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafés. This holiday home is perfect for guests who want to be close to all amenities, yet set back just enough to allow for a peaceful relaxing stay. The living space is perfect for socializing, with a contemporary kitchen, Smart TV with a sound bar, and Wi-Fi.
Walk out of the front door and step into the heart of the seaside town, with its quaint cobbled streets, numerous eateries and atmospheric harbour. Taste the wonderful fish and chips and work them off with an exhilarating cliff-top walk, or just relax on the long sandy beach. Jump on the tour bus to make sure you don’t miss out on everything that Whitby has to offer, or take a trip on one of the pleasure boats and enjoy a tour around the harbour and out to sea. There is always something happening in Whitby, from the bi-annual Goth Festival, to the Whitby Regatta, 60’s weekender to folk festivals.
If 3 miles of unspoilt beach isn’t enough, Whitby is also in a fantastic location to get out and explore the natural beauty of the North York Moors and The Yorkshire Heritage Coast.
The unspoilt fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay, which nestles into the cliffs of the Heritage Coast, is 5½ miles away. Other unspoilt villages include Runswick Bay, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Staithes. Each has its own story of pirates and smuggling to tell.
An abundance of walks and cycle tracks for ramblers and cyclists include the Cleveland Way, as well as the Esk Valley and its stunning scenery, best enjoyed from the windows of the steam train that travels right into the heart of the Yorkshire Moors National Park from Whitby to Goathland, which is otherwise known as Aidensfield in the TV show ’Heartbeat’.
Other attractions for a day out include the Eden Camp Museum, Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land. The medieval walled city of York is just an hour away and is well worth a visit with attractions including the Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum. There are car parks nearby and a Park ’n’ Ride facility 1½ miles away, both at cost. Or for a car free holiday, why not take the train and use the tour bus for sightseeing! Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
