Things To Do in Whitby

For four healthy people and two eager dogs, the cottage offers instant access to the historic town of Whitby, which slopes dramatically to a natural harbour at the mouth of the River Esk. West cliff houses the town itself, with whale bones reminding visitors of the town’s whaling history, and narrow, winding cobbled streets with shops selling everything from superb locally caught fish and home cooked chips to seafood eateries with much more exotic menus. Visit Pannett Park in the heart of the town to walk off the calories and inhale some real fresh air.

West cliff is also home to a dog friendly, blue flag beach, stretching a couple of miles to the west. Over the bridge is East Cliff, with the Captain Cook museum and famous 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey, where Bram Stoker was inspired to write Dracula. This in turn has led to the town becoming a mecca for goths, who attend an annual festival which is well worth experiencing.

Travel inland by road or the North York Moors Railway (steam and diesel locomotives) into the National Park, and follow the hundreds of miles of signposted footpaths, cycle ways and horse riding trails. The tributaries of the River Esk also offer some scary white water sports, not to mention dramatic features like Mallyan Spout Waterfall, sure to give dogs and people alike a thrill. The moors also host unspoiled villages to stop off for a breather, and enjoy some old fashioned Yorkshire hospitality, food and drink.

Last Word

This is a great bolthole for a family or small group of friends with two energetic dogs to find some space and be central for a very special part of the north of England. This far north eastern corner of Yorkshire has 50km of coastline hugging ancient upland moors, so has lots to offer the walker, cyclist, wild sports lover and good old fashioned sightseer. You’ll want for nothing as Whitby offers everything from the very freshest of seafood to exotic clothes and artefacts, in a mix and atmosphere unlike any other British coastal town.

Take advantage of the miles of sandy beaches up and down the coast, and history buffs will be fascinated by this important part of Great Britain, as witnessed by the ruins of Whitby Abbey and the whalebone arch. Culture vultures will love the town’s literary connections, not least of which is its inspiration for Dracula. In the evenings, take a seat at a table with seafood cuisine from a raft of cultures, against a sea view not many could match.

Come home to your own private courtyard and enjoy a glass of wine in peace and quiet, safe in the knowledge that the dogs can’t damage anything downstairs. Kick back on the big leather sofas knowing that two and four legged guests alike are well satisfied.
