We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. Peter and Paula are the most welcoming friendly hosts, the rooms are beautiful and such amazing value, and the breakfast was superb. With such a large array of B&B's in Whitby to choose from I can highly recommend this one - you won't be disappointed!!

Normally south coast visitors, but thought we would try the east coast for a change. We weren't disappointed! Paula and Peter were excellent hosts and shared a wealth of knowledge about Whitby and the surrounding areas. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful and the kippers were amazing! For first time visitors to Whitby we couldn't have asked for better. Will... More
