The Old Shipping office dates back into the 1700s, but has been transformed into this luxurious holiday ‘home from home’. It has a modern kitchen and living area to complement a variety of bedrooms. The view from the top floor bedroom has real wow factor and looks straight across the town onto the famous Whitby Abbey and Church – simply stunning! The location of The Shipping Office couldn’t be better, being just a short walk away from coffee shops, eateries and traditional pubs, and the famous swing bridge less than a 5-minute stroll away.
The far side of the town has the famous 199 steps up to the abbey (where Bram Stoker’s beast fled the shipwreck in the novel ‘Dracula’), as well as the old cobbled back streets with a plethora of shops, eateries and traditional bars. The beach stretches for miles as far as the beautiful little village of Sandsend with plenty of space, rock pools and fossil hunting to enjoy. Captain Cook’s ship, the Endeavour, is now moored up in Whitby, and steam trains run into the nearby North York Moors National Park towards ‘Aidensfield’, featured in the TV show Heartbeat.… it’s like stepping back in time.
There is always something happening in Whitby, from Goth festivals to live music and regattas. Keep an eye on the busy year-round calendar to see what’s happening during your holiday. There are many hidden coastal gems along the Yorkshire Coast, from picturesque Runswick Bay to Staithes, each with its own story of piracy and smugglers. The famous Cleveland Way snakes along the coastline, and the Cinder Track drops down into Robin Hood’s Bay for a leisurely stroll; or take a tourist boat out for maybe a glimpse of dolphins and seals that frequent our coastline.
Nearby Scarborough is a traditional seaside resort and has many attractions for families including a waterpark, Sea Life Centre and Peasholm Park, as well as the two large bays. Further afield is the theme park, Flamingo Land, and the walled city of York with its Jorvik Viking Centre, the National Railway Museum, minster and a myriad of shops and bars, all within the city walls. Beach 500 yards, Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
