About Whitby

Shoreline Cottages

Whitby is situated on the Yorkshire Coast. To the south lies the coastal villages and resorts of  Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington.  All these are well within a short drive from Whitby. The nearest city inland is York.

From the old town of Whitby, 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St. Mary, whose churchyard on Whitby's East Cliff gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write his world famous book, Dracula

Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside.
