Our changeover day is generally Friday (and we cannot be flexible on this in school holidays) so unfortunately any request for a 7 night booking to start on a Saturday for example is likely to be declined. Outside school holiday periods though we welcome short break bookings of 3 or 4 nights typically starting on a Friday or Monday. If you would like to book the house please provide some information on your group on your request e.g. family holiday/friends' reunion.

Whitby has become the one of the most popular destinations on the North Yorkshire coast. It is dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 13th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants locally and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays).
A visit to the area would not be complete without a trip to the North Yorkshire Moors (the spectacular scenery was featured on Richard Wilson's 'Great British Drives' programme). The NYMR steam railway operates between Whitby and Pickering taking in some tremendous scenery which featured in the popular television series "Heartbeat" and the James Herriot books.
