Best destinations for Whitby cottages

  • Robin Hood's Bay: Also known as Bay Town, Robin Hood's Bay is a small fishing village just south of Whitby proper. It features winding streets and historical architecture that offer a one of a kind experience. While the town was historically a haven for smugglers, more mainstream maritime business has since taken over, so expect numerous opportunities for fishing and boating. Whitby cottages in this area are notably historical, yet tend to be quieter and more relaxed than their more urban counterparts.
  • Whitby Beach: If you're looking for a more outdoor-oriented holiday experience, booking one of the Whitby cottages in this area might be your best bet. The sandy shores of this region are pristine and offer gentle waters perfect for both swimming and fishing. Local cottages by the beach tend to be state of the art offering convenient access to the water and scenic views of the channel. You may even find some cottage rentals that are close to the town centre as well as some beaches that are located directly on the outskirts allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
  • Whitby Harbour: Whitby Harbour can trace its origins back to the natural estuary of the River Esk. Over the centuries, many man-made improvements have occurred within the area to craft it into the collection of piers and shops it's known for today. It actually faces north, so it's one of the few places in all of the UK where you can actually watch a sunrise and a sunset over the water in the summer. Along the harbour itself, you'll find numerous shops, restaurants and boat rentals perfect for venturing out into the sea yourself.
