About The Town
Whitby is a small coastal town in North Yorkshire, England. It enjoys all the usual attractions of a seaside town in England: Fish and chips, ice-cream, and of course variable weather.
Whitby also has a rich gothic history and was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Its many sites and attractions include Whitby Abbey, the 199 steps, the harbour, and the beach.
The beach is about ten minutes’ walk from Chandlers View holiday cottage. You can walk along the beach to Sandsend at low tide where there is a lovely café on the seafront.
