  • "Stowaway cottage was very clean and comfortable."

    The location was excellent being just a few minutes walk from the sea front and the town centre. The property had all the facilities we needed. We would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

  • "Had a great stay unfortunately we had 3days as car broke down on Friday couldn’t get down till Tuesday so we payed £678 for three days not one sign of some refund."

    That was not our fault so I would not recommend paying a year in advance.

  • "Described accurately and more modern appliances than at home!"

    Not having Sky, tv was often complicated to work, but certainly not a drawback!

  • "We enjoyed a few days in Whitby for my friend's 70th birthday and Stowaway cottage was a warm, comfortable place to stay."

    Clean, well equipped and plenty of space for us and our canine companions. As older visitors a handrail at the door to help us up the step would be welcome as would another in the shower (I was using the towel rail for support). Somewhere to hang towels would be useful.

    Great week out and about in Whitby knowing that you were coming back to the comfort of the property. Would certainly use again.

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.
