Reviews

Incredible property with lots of personal touches. The photography around the property highlights the wonderful views around Whitby and the finishing touches made you feel so welcome. A real home from home.

Mrs Jaime P,

Comfortable, spacious property which we would highly recommend and would definitely return to.

Miss Sally M,

Fabulous pad! Lots of space, brilliantly appointed in a good location. Would stay here again anytime.

Previous Customer,

We had a really lovely week. The house was so well equipped, stylish and cared for. Excellent position - central, but quiet.

Claire W,

A lovely place to stay - so well equipped and comfortable. Love the sleigh bed and furniture! Lucky with the weather so spent a lot of time on trains (steam), boats and on the beach. Lots of excellent places to eat out - Rusty Shears across the road and the Marine on the harbour. Enjoyed Pickering and also the rowing boats on the river at Ruswarp. Hope to be back before long!

Previous Customer,

What a lovely place to stay this is. We came for folk week and this is the nicest place we have stayed. Memories to take away - Bothams, fish and chips at the Fisherman's Wife, Justins Fudge, views over the harbour and sea - thank you.

Previous Customer,

We have had another lovely stay in Whitby. This is our second stay at Wilhelmina. It is just as lovely as it was the first time around, if not better with all the new little touches. Weather was fine, the Regatta was good and the fireworks were spectacular. Thanks for the lovely welcome pack, the bottle of prosecco was a lovely touch. Wilhelmina really does have it all. Already looking forward to our third stay with you next year.

Previous Customer,

Great location, best cottage we've ever stayed in. In the middle of everything, but so quite at night.

Mrs sarah w,

Beautiful property - very clean.

Area Information

Whitby

Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops.  There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms. 

 

The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.

 

There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year.
