Fish & Ships
From £112 per night
This bright apartment has a superb location right in the heart of charming Whitby. With a ten-minute walk, you could be sinking your feet into a white-sand beach, ascending the 199 Steps, exploring the abbey’s ruins or feasting on fish and chips down by the harbour. Whitby is also a gateway for scenic hikes in North Yorkshire’s unspoilt moors, dales and forests. All of this diversion will suit couples and families looking for a cosy place to escape city life. Curl up on the sofa with a good book – Bram Stoker’s Dracula, perhaps, which is closely associated with the town. If it’s warm, open the patio doors for a breath of fresh sea air and uncork a bottle of wine for sipping as you cook. The kitchen is smart and well equipped, though if you don’t fancy playing chef, Whitby’s pubs and seafood restaurants are just a stone's throw away.
