10 Cheap Bed & Breakfasts in Whitby For A Budget Break

Every regular visitor to the North Yorkshire town of Whitby was once new to this lovely coastal settlement.

It has a well-established clientele, many of whom return time and again for day trips, long weekends or even their main summer holidays. It is easy to see why because of the variety it offers within the Town itself and on the doorstep.

Regular festivals attract interest groups while historians and hikers are just two of the other groups of people for whom Whitby is a favourite place. Whitby’s fish and chips are famous everywhere while the non-precious stone, Jet, has been popular since the days of Queen Victoria whose love of black after the death of Prince Albert firmly established Jet as a fashion.

There is plenty of choice when it comes to accommodation with rental cottages often booked well in advance. Those who want a hearty breakfast with the independence to visit local bars and restaurants for dinner without having to do any cooking themselves often decide on the friendly bed and breakfast establishments found throughout the Town.
The summer school holiday weeks are extremely popular with visitors with families but there is no reason to choose such weeks if you are a single or couple. No one can predict UK weather, but spring and autumn are both seasons when visitors to Whitby will find plenty to do. Hikers love the nearby Moors and Whitby Abbey is just one of the many landmarks in town.

When it comes to booking bed and breakfast places, you can make direct contact with the majority. You may wish to be in the heart of the Town, or a little away from the action. Whatever your preference, here is just a small selection of places worth considering if you want to see what all the fuss is about when people talk about Whitby. You may already be a regular so you will know but perhaps you want to try a new place to stay. If so, read on.
