More about High Tor Guest House

A warm welcome awaits you at High Tor Guest House, a luxurious Victorian property offering you that relaxed and friendly home-from-home feel. Run by owners Sue and Gary, High Tor has excellent standards of hospitality and cleanliness and for added comfort, operates a policy for no smoking throughout the house. 

High Tor’s well-appointed, tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished accommodation comprises 7 en suite bedrooms. Some rooms offer the flexibility of twin/super king-size and other rooms are situated on the ground floor, handy for those unable to access the stairs. The front attic room offers spectacular views and others positioned at the rear of the house are perfect for visitors preferring to opt for quieter areas.

All bedrooms are fully en suite and although differently sized, are spacious. All rooms have colour TVs, radio alarm clocks, hairdriers and hospitality trays and come complete with toiletries and towels.

There is guest seating in the front garden. At the back of the house there’s plenty of safe, secure storage for your bicycles or motorbike.

Start the day in the sunny dining room with a hearty breakfast (served from 8.30 - 9.15am - with separate room numbered tables). Help yourself to a great selection of cereals, fruit juices, grapefruit segments, yoghurts and in-season fresh fruit. Cooked breakfasts and hot drinks are served direct to your table. The 'full English' will certainly set you up for the day and includes 2 bacon rashers, locally sourced sausages, grilled tomato, hash brown, beans and sauteed mushrooms. A vegetarian option is available (on request). For those preferring a lighter bite there's scrambled eggs, poached egg on toast, sausage and bacon baps and more. There's plenty of white/wholemeal toast and a good selection of preserves along with a choice of excellent teas and plenty of freshly brewed coffee. High Tor also caters for special dietary needs. Please mention when booking. 

Although located close to all the excellent amenities Whitby has to offer with its historic cobbled streets and 199 Church Steps leading up to the famous Abbey and St. Mary's Church and great shops, High Tor is set in a quiet area which is great for relaxing, but is ideally positioned to explore Whitby on foot, being only a short walk from West Cliff beach ('Blue Flag' status, offering a 3 mile stretch of golden sands) and close to Whitby Pavilion which has plenty of entertainment.

Unrestricted on-street parking is available in front of the house and in the nearby streets by permit, which is issued free of charge to our guests. Whitby’s West Cliff has its own car park and several other car parks are close by (within 10 minutes walking distance).
