We found more genuine Yorkshire hospitality at Whitby, this time with our hosts Judith & Mike who were very helpful and friendly. The property was very quaint, and had a beautiful modern ensuite bathroom. The rooms were very clean and well presented, and free wifi was available, which was great for us to check emails and arrange future accommodation. Mike cooked a great breakfast to start us well for the day, while Judith was the perfect hostess offering plenty of tips for local sightseeing ideas.
For your information ... The seaside town of Whitby has a classic fishing village feel with much history (Capt James Cook began his naval career here) and so is very popular. We arrived on the bank holiday Monday and the town was packed ... it took a little while for us to find a place to stay.
