    • “There was a warm and friendly welcome. Superb setting and the cottage was first rate, clean and well equipped for two people. Nothing was too much trouble whilst I was there. Helping me with local knowledge about footpaths and places of interest without which my holiday would have been much less interesting. The area is so very beautiful and I most surely will return very soon. Thank you to the family and I hope to see you real soon.”

About the location


Sleights 1 mile; Whitby 3 miles; Sandsend 5 miles.

The village of Aislaby is located in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Esk Valley, overlooking Sleights and just three miles from Whitby. A small rural village, quiet and secluded, Aislaby is a thriving community of pretty sandstone cottages clustered around a main street and a thriving community served by the old church and Forge Inn. By cycling, walking, or driving in the surrounding area, guests can visit Egton's famous church of St Hedda with its painted ceiling, walk through the beautiful Arncliffe Woods, discover the historic North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Grosmont, or explore the old mill on the banks of the River Esk. The location is also ideal for exploring the spectacular North York Moors and the many small fishing villages and resort towns of this beautiful coastline. Nearby Whitby, once the home of Captain James Cook, is a charming, atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches, a broad range of eateries and award-winning fish and chips, and of course the Abbey, which inspired Bram Stoker, reached by the famous 199 steps. For culture lovers, a day trip to the city of York, with its famous minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre, and National Railway Museum will be a fantastic addition to your break.
