    “The cottage is in a perfect location, about 25 minutes walk/ 5 min drive into Whitby, so it was close but not really busy.”

    It is on a main road but we didn't find the road noise an issue. The photos on the website don't do the cottage justice- it is decorated to perfection inside, spotlessly clean (and I am picky when it comes to this) and is well equipped with comfy beds/ sofa and dishwasher, smart tv, washing machine etc. The garden area is dog friendly and is properly fenced in, our dog had a great holiday. The only suggestion would make would be some comfier furniture in the garden and some more basics eg ...

Broadings Farm Cottages

Resting on the outskirts of the popular resort of Whitby in North Yorkshire is this group of four charming cottages. Boasting distant sea views as well of views of the iconic abbey, Broading Farm Cottages is a collection of four properties offering something for everyone. Two of these properties boast a more traditional feel with character features such as wooden beams and brick fireplaces, while two are much more contemporary with a more minimal style and neutral décor. Three of the four properties are all on the ground floor, making them suitable for those with mobility issues, while the larger property, Whalebone Cottage is suited to a large family, sleeping eight guests. The properties lie just a mile from the centre of Whitby, where you can wander its winding cobbled streets and hidden alleys, discovering a wide selection of eateries, gift shops, restaurants and pubs scattered amongst them. Take a walk along the beach and stop off to enjoy some delicious fish and chips, or go for a swim on a warmer day. Climb the iconic 199 steps to Whitby Abbey and take in the picturesque coastal views from the top. Learn more about the history of the town by visiting the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, and hop on a boat out to sea to enjoy whale watching. Within a short drive are the resorts of Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough, each boasting wonderful beaches, walking trails and a plethora of attractions to see, while the magnificent North York National Park is within easy reach, boasting rugged moorland and lush rolling landscapes, ideal for walkers and cyclists. Broadings Farm Cottages are well placed for discovering the best of the coast and countryside of North Yorkshire.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an abundance of activity so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for every interest and time of year. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set, or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
