The Rockpool is quietly tucked away in its own private little yard just off the main road down into town. Its close enough to be in the town centre within a couple of minutes walk but secluded enough to feel quite private; safe and secure and just short distance away from the all the thriving hustle & bustle that makes Whitby unique. As a space its perfect for Birthdays; Anniversaries, Romantic Retreats, Mini & Study Breaks, Solo Quests, Babymoons....you get the picture (s). As a place its perfect for exploring town; its myriad of yards; the coastal paths, the old railway line to Robin Hoods Bay and everyday pub & restaurant adventures...
