    “Had a wonderful time at Anchor cottage.”

    Close to all amenities. Love the stairs they reminded us of our own 18th century mill conversion. Would definitely be back sometime in the future.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.

Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close.
