Stunning coastal scenery, quaint cobblestone streets and fantastic literary links gives Whitby universal appeal. The North Yorkshire seaside town sits just north of Scarborough and it couldn’t be a better destination for a family getaway or a couples’ retreat. Picture-perfect Whitby Beach, with its soft sand and dark blue north sea waves, is a major allure of any trip to this pretty corner of the North. You’ll also uncover more sandy stretches in the neighbouring towns of Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay. Alternatively, why not journey into the breathtaking North York Moors National Park to gorgeous Goathland where you can take a ride on a vintage steam train?

Not just a destination for an outdoorsy escape, Whitby packs a punch with its historical attractions. Bookworms can’t skip touring the ruins of Whitby Abbey — the setting of Bram Stoker’s world-famous Gothic novel about the fearsome Count Dracula. Whitby was also the birthplace of 18th-century explorer, James Cook, and you’ll discover plenty of fascinating tales about his Pacific Ocean adventures at the Captain Cook Museum.

As well as enjoying a packed itinerary, you’ll be spoilt for choice with places to stay in Whitby. Browse quaint fisherman’s cottages in the centre of the town or slumber in a modern property in a nearby hamlet like Sleights or Aislaby. From family-friendly homes to cosy boltholes with hot tubs, there’s an accommodation option to suit every type of getaway at Cottage Holidays.
