The town and surrounding area is certainly the jewel in the crown on Yorkshire's East Coast.

Standing at the mouth of the River Esk and surrounded by rolling heather moors, Whitby boasts a large harbour and picturesque marina. The historic charm of the town is complemented by a great selection of contemporary bars, bistros, shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance of Rusty Cottage.

The town has strong historic associations with Captain James Cook, the fearful Count Dracula and the famous Whitby Abbey, reached by the popular 199 steps, which proudly overlooks the pretty harbour.

You can even enjoy the marvellous sights of the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Train passing within walking distance from Rusty Cottage. Both the bus and train stations offer excellent transport links and are also within easy walking distance.

Whitby is the perfect back-drop for hosting various special events throughout the year including Whitby Regatta, Folk Week, Goth Weekends, 60s & 70s Nostalgia Weekends and Heritage Steam Railway events.

Rusty Cottage is ideally located for exploring the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, the pretty fishing villages of Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick Bay and the Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough.
