Whitby, Scarborough District, North Yorkshire, England
Hidden away, behind Cliff St, up some steps is Bolthole Cottage, Walkers Yard . It is central for shops, dining out, and browsing the antique shops. Being off the main street it is quiet. Many locals dont know its there! Whitby has a great history and has been home to photographers, writers, and artists down the ages. Give your senses a treat, bring camera / paint brush, or just hole up in the cottage and have much needed R+R !

The surrounding area is wonderful for walking, leafy monks trods, leading from the Abbey, moor tracks over the heather. Some great Pubs on your way. (Recommendations kept in cottage!) All well signed by the National Park.

The Esk Valley Train line will take you to interesting villages---- and you can walk back?! The 'Harry Potter' steam trains are close at Grosmont for enthusiasts. Fossill hunting on t...

A fantastic cottage in the heart of Whitby yet quiet and secluded, made a great base for Whitby Goth Weekend with the Little A a minute's walk in one direction, and the Spa and Met a few minutes walk in the other. Lovely gifts on arrival of bread, cakes and wine (thanks Kaaren!), the cottage is stocked with everything you...
