Parking. There is a detailed page in our welcome pack with advice on parking including links with maps.

Henrietta street is in the cobbled streets of old whitby, really central for the shops, pubs and cafe's - but there is no public parking. Our road is very quiet, and on arrival you should have no problem parking up to unload. We usually unload bags (and the kids!) - and I drive to park and walk 5 - 10 mins back to the cottage. Depending on where you want to park - we always find free parking a short walk away, but you can pay to park nearer, or use the park and ride car parks in the summer.

Whitby
Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. For a different day out, why not climb the famous 199 steps to reach the ruins of Whitby Abbey. It's said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stokers Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town.

Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch. There's always something happening throughout the town , and festivals and fairs are held throughout the year including Whitby Goth Festival, Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta.
