  • "The only disappointment was that there was no outside area for the dog,"

  • "We found Routh Retreat an excellent apartment for 2 adults and their dog."

    All in close proximity to the town centre, beach access, good pubs and an excellent baker. Out only issue was finding the property after Sykes Cottages provided us with an incorrect address. Otherwise, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property.

  • "On arrival the advertised wifi was not working and it was not corrected until three days onto our four-night break."

    Anyone using the property should find the correct information in the visitor's folder now. The email sent with directions to the property were incorrect - the email refers to Anchor Cottage and The Stowaway on Routh Walk whereas the property is called Routh Retreat on Well Close Square so we spent some time looking for the property before we found it on Well Close Square.

About the location


Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
