Whitby has it all and is the perfect tourist destination with so much to see and do. Visit the historic abbey, St Mary’s Church and climb the 199 Steps for stunning views over the town and out to sea. Take a steam train ride on-board the Harry Potter Express on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway as it snakes its way through fabulous scenery of the North York Moors National Park to Grosmont, (Aidensfield from TVs Heartbeat) and Pickering. Learn about Captain Cook’s time in Whitby and his epic voyages at the Memorial Museum or even take a pleasure boat out to sea in search of minke whales and dolphins, or enjoy a fishing trip from the harbour. Whitby is said to be the inspiration behind Bram Stokers’ Dracula and plays host to bi-annual goth festivals, or enjoy a nightly ghost walk for the brave hearted. There is a long stretch of golden sands to enjoy from Whitby heading north through the sought after resort of Sandsend. Whitby is also host to many festivals and events throughout the year such as the annual regatta, Folk Week, Motown Weekend and Steampunk.
The stunning North York Moors National Park is a walkers and cyclist paradise, with routes to suit everyone from championship level cycle tracks to a stroll along parts of the Cinder Track, which runs from Whitby to Scarborough along the railway line. The Cleveland Way is always a popular choice as it runs across cliff tops and down into hidden bays and coves such as Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and Runswick Bay. Neighbouring Scarborough has two large bays, an open air theatre boasting top international artists throughout the summer, a water park and the Sealife Centre. Beach 400 yards. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 15 yards.
Laverick Steps can be booked together with Bell Island Cottage (ref UK2591) to accommodate up to 6 guests.
