Everything about Hanover cottage is perfect. We had a wonderful family get together to celebrate a birthday. There was sufficient parking for our cars. Not that we needed them often...almost everywhere we went was withing walking distance. There was nothing we lacked,it was simply home from home. So much so, we didn't want to go home!! The cottage is cosy,...

About the neighborhood
The popular coastal resort of Whitby has much to offer for people of all ages. Visit Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook Museum, the Whale jawbone, the harbour and beach. If you enjoy walking or cycling this is a great area to visit. With lots of tea rooms, coffee shops and restaurants to choose from plus a good selection of shops, Whitby is an ideal location for a holiday or shorter weekend get away. Explore nearby, smaller coastal resorts such as Sandsend and Runswick Bay or travel inland to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park and scenic villages of Goathland and Grosmont.
Getting around
The train station is close by (a 5-minute walk down the hill), as is the bus station. Public transport can be accessed within 10 metres of the house, so you can jump on a bus to go to and from the town centre or head of to Scarborough or York for the day.
Whitby also has plenty of taxis that can be pre-booked or are available at the Harbourside.
Parking in the town centre can be difficult on a weekend and over the Summer months and is expensive, so I would recommend the 5-minute walk to the centre of town if you can manage it.
