    “We had a lovely short break at Dovecote cottage.”

    Everything we needed was provided. There was plenty of equipment in the kitchen , pans , dishes etc though the fridge freezer was small and could be a problem for longer stays.

A large dining room provides additional comfortable seating and a table and chairs for sociable dining.

The smart kitchen with granite worktops and range cooker has a further table and chairs – sit here for an unhurried morning cuppa as you discuss the day’s plans.

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.
