A proper warm & friendly B&B. Nothing pretentious. Clean, quiet, good breakfast, warm welcome and to be honest what more would you want. The only... More

A very warm welcome from owners Gary & Sue on arrival. They were just having tea and offered me a cream cake which I gratefully accepted to have with my cup of tea in my room before heading out to explore Whitby. I was in one of the attic rooms and be warned - there are a lot of stairs!... More

The rooms, spotlessly clean, lovely big comfortable bed, soft fluffy towels, even dressing gowns to wear if needed. Breakfast could not be faulted, good selection, fresh fruit, grapefruit, juices, cereals, full english breakfast cooked to perfection Sue and Gary lovely friendly... More

High Tor is a gem, its just far enough away from the centre of Whitby to be quiet but close enough to leave your car for the... More
