Self-catering Holiday Cottages In Whitby; Our Guide to Self-catering Holiday Cottages In Whitby

Everybody knows the charms of Whitby. From its wonderfully gothic cliff edge abbey to its 199 steps and stunning Whitby jet stores, it is a fantastic holiday destination. More than that, however, it is also a fantastic central base to explore other lesser known but just as beautiful resorts like Sandsend, Staithes, and Robin Hood’s Bay. Here’s our guide to 15 of the best self catering holiday cottages in Whitby.

Sandsend is a small fishing village with sandy beaches, fossil hunting, and its very own surf school. Staithes is the home of all things Captain Cook, with the man himself being a grocer’s apprentice there. Robin Hood’s Bay, no link to Robin other than a ballad that mentions him, is the place to visit for all things smuggling. In the 18th century, many a ship unloaded its ‘illegal’ cargo there!
