Situated at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby is an ancient fishing port steeped in history. The ruin of St Hilda's Abbey is high on Whitby's East Cliff and looks down on narrow streets and alleyways. From the old town, the parish church of St Mary, also on East Cliff, has 199 steps leading to it and the churchyard was one of the inspirations for Bram Stoker's Dracula. Other attractions in Whitby include the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Victorian Jet Works and The Dracula Experience. There are year-round events at Whitby Pavilion Complex and there is a blue flag beach and spectacular cliffs and bays to explore. Whitby is in a beautiful region and offers visitors a great deal of variety for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
In 2014 Yorkshire hosted the world-famous Tour de France Grand Départ. After a royal send-off at Harewood House, the riders raced through Otley, Ilkley, Skipton, Kettlewell, Aysgarth, Hawes, Reeth, Leyburn, Ripon and the Stage One finishing point, Harrogate. Stage Two started in York as the yellow jersey departed for Sheffield, via Knaresborough, Silsden, Keighley, Haworth, Hebden Bridge, Elland, Huddersfield, and Holmfirth. The visit of this iconic cycling event has left a lasting impression on the villages and towns that were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the peloton, so much so that in May 2015 the first Tour de Yorkshire cycle race was held as a fitting legacy to what was a grand Grand Départ.

Reviews for Amber Cottage
Amber Cottage is a quirky wee abode on three levels with views from the attic bedroom across the harbour to Whitby Abbey and St Mary's Church. With the living flame open fire, the house is cosy and a combination boiler provides all the hot water you need.
