Many of our holiday homes are pet/dog-friendly too.
A trip to Yorkshire’s East Coast isn’t complete without visiting the famous and historic port of Whitby where there are fantastic places to visit including the well-known 199 steps that lead from Church Street straight up to Whitby Abbey which watches over this historic and popular seaside town. Whitby is known world-wide for its connections with Captain Cook, the famous Goth Weekends and Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’. Whitby holds an annual Regatta and a Folk Weekend too, which all continuously bring crowds to Whitby each year. Why not visit the beaches and see if you can find your own special piece of Whitby Jet?
Scarborough, reputed to be ‘The Queen of the Yorkshire Coast’ is known to be a firm family-favourite and encapsulates everything for your perfect seaside break. With lots of nostalgia, amusement arcades, the beach donkeys, beach huts and lots of cafes and restaurants, Scarborough has something for everyone and there are many lovely villages close by to stay at and explore.
Notorious for its long history of press gangs, pirates and smugglers, Robin Hood’s Bay (which is located only six miles south of Whitby) is breath-taking and picturesque. The many narrow alleyways and twisting cobbled streets behold many tales and secrets of days long gone. The Bay relied heavily in the past on its fishing industry and this very pretty and unspoilt village has an abundance of many local fishermen’s cottages. It once held the largest fishing fleet along the Yorkshire Coast. Due to its excellent reputation, Robin Hood’s Bay attracts many visitors all year round and is an excellent tourism base for visiting Scarborough, Whitby, the North York Moors and Ryedale, and many other coastal villages such as Runswick Bay, Staithes, Port Mulgrave and Ravenscar and is renowned as a beachcomber’s paradise, with its rock pools, making a wonderful opportunity to discover fossils, rocks, marine life and fascinating shells.
A trip to the exhilarating North York Moors National Park wouldn’t be complete without taking a ride on the world-famous North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Along the route you’ll be able to stop off and visit many famous Moorland villages such as Goathland and Grosmont (both being TV film locations for “Heartbeat” and “Harry Potter”). The beautiful Yorkshire Dales is less than a just a couple of hour’s drive away (recently inspired by Adrian Edmondson’s ‘The Dales’ programme).
