The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Sandwiched between a striking coastline of rugged cliffs and the wild, remote landscapes of the North York Moors National Park, a self-catering cottage holiday in Whitby offers the very best of coast and countryside.
This historic port oozes charm and boasts a prize-winning beach, stunning cliff-top abbey and a good selection of shops catering for your everyday needs and treats. There's also an inviting collection of eateries and real-ale pubs often featuring live music. Browse the labyrinth of tiny streets tracing the footsteps of Captain Cook, or encounter the famous 'man in black' at the Bram Stoker Dracula Experience - and if there's a full moon, don't miss a midnight walk through St. Mary's Churchyard.
A self-catering cottage holiday in Whitby is an excellent choice for lovers of the 'great outdoors', with numerous activities on your doorstep. There are well-marked trails along the coast and in the Moors, including long-distance footpaths like the Coast to Coast. Nearby Dalby Forest is great for mountain biking, while the coast offers safe bathing, surfing, angling and boat trips.
If you're passionate about festivals, a self-catering cottage holiday in Whitby is also a hit, with regular annual events like Folk Week, Gothic Weekends and Whitby Regatta.
All in all, something for everyone!
