The property

Situated in an elevated position in the bustling town of Whitby in North Yorkshire is this delightful cottage, The Nook.

Ideal for a family and their canine companion, this lovely dwelling offers a family-friendly layout along with a charming garden, perfect for sitting out in the warmer evenings.

On arrival at the cottage, take the steps up into the courtyard and step into your home-from-home for the trip.

The well-equipped kitchen also offers a handy washing machine where you can clean your sandy clothes and beach towels before taking advantage of the electric oven and gas hob to rustle up a tasty meal for your group.

From here, move into the living/dining room to dine as a family while you plan your next adventure, and when it is time to relax, sink into the sofa to watch a film on the TV while the electric fire warms the space.

When sleep calls, head to the bedrooms for some well-earned rest; the ground floor hosts a bunk room which is suited to both adults and children, along with a double with a sleigh bed and a light and airy décor.

Climb the stairs to the first floor where you will find the remaining bedroom, another double, with Velux windows letting in an abundance of light and pretty views over the rooftops of Whitby.

In the morning, freshen up in the bathroom where you have the choice of a bath or a shower, before stepping through the patio doors to enjoy your morning coffee in the courtyard.

Be sure to explore the area while you're staying at The Nook; the dramatic Whitby Abbey towers over the town and is within easy reach of the cottage.

The famous 199 Steps are also within easy reach and well worth the climb to reach the glorious and far-reaching views over the area, or perhaps spend a day at the golden sandy beach before stopping for some fish and chips to enjoy back at the cottage.

Venturing further afield, the lively town of Scarborough is just a short car journey away and home to another gorgeous beach and plenty of eateries to fuel your excursions.

Animal lovers may enjoy a day at the Scarborough Sea Life Centre, a fantastic aquarium which is fun for all ages, while history buffs can spend an afternoon exploring the Rotunda Museum.

If you are travelling with younger guests, Flamingo Land Resort is just a scenic drive away and boasts a wealth of rides and activities to keep the little ones entertained.

Avid walkers and cyclists will not be left short on this trip, with the North York Moors National Park right on the doorstep, venture out and discover some of the most beautiful landscapes Yorkshire has to offer.

Whatever the weather, The Nook makes a wonderful base for a fantastic family-friendly holiday to North Yorkshire.

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 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.
