As autumn draws to a close and we begin the slow descent into the short days and long nights of winter, we’ve put together our top picks for a weekend getaway to Whitby, to help you make the most of the festive season in some of our favourite Whitby bed and breakfasts.
It may be getting cold outside but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a nice walk around the town and a slap up meal at one of the fantastic restaurants in town followed by a cheeky pint or a glass of wine next to a roaring fire at one of the many charming pubs in Whitby. Why not treat yourself this weekend with a stay in one of our favourites…
