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.
