Our Two very comfortable non-smoking, self catering Whitby holiday cottage accommodations are both in prime locations and therefore both ideal for holidaymakers staying in Whitby. Because our cottages have free unlimited broadband Wi-Fi, SkySat TV and other inclusive facilities this makes us quite popular throughout the year. Included in the price is all your bed linen and utilities such as gas and electric. In addition we leave out milk, tea and coffee all ready for your arrival.

Our cottages are in the best locations.

Awd Tuts Cottage is close to Whitby harbour so we are in an ideal location near to the beach but also in the centre of Whitby near to all attractions.

Similarly, Riverside Cottage has waterside views overlooking the River Esk. For two reasons, our Whitby self catering holiday cottages are both very well-placed. Firstly to visit North Yorkshire beach areas and secondly the surrounding countryside areas of the North Yorkshire Moors. In other words there are plenty of things to do and above all our rental cottages in Whitby won’t break the bank. 

We offer 2,3 and 4 night short breaks all year round.

Our cottages are child friendly. We don’t normally take pets but may be dog friendly only after discussion with the pet owner. In addition we offer you free car Parking at our Riverside holiday cottage.

Self Catering in Whitby:

Awd Tuts Cottage dates back to the year 1640 and has all of that ‘olde worlde’ charm and character with its beamed ceilings and thick stone walls. Awd Tuts Cottage is well placed  for two main reasons. Firstly, guests love the location of this cottage as it is strategically placed in the centre of Whitby’s old cobbled streets. Secondly, once you have parked your car there is no need to bother with it again for the duration unless you want to go sightseeing other nearby towns or attractions.

A little about Whitby

Whitby is a nice, quaint, traditional seaside resort in North Yorkshire that has Blue Flag beaches. It also has some of the best fish and chips around. It’s great to eat fresh fish caught just offshore and landed locally. There’s also so much more however to discover.


Fish and chips and ice cream
History and culture
Boat trips
Ghost Walks
Vampires and Goths

It’s all on offer at Whitby, one of the North East coast’s best-loved seaside towns.

With Blue Flag beaches and many attractions, including the world-famous steam engine of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Whitby is the perfect base for a family holiday.

Whitby wallows in a rich history, including fishing and the jet industry too. Whitby is still the best place in the world to find the gleaming black gemstone on the beaches. This was so beloved by the Victorians after Queen Victoria started off the trend of Jet jewellery. 
Captain Cook was born nearby. His famous ship the Endeavour was Whitby-built. Whaling was also a very large part of Whitby’s past heritage too. A pair of ancient Whalebones still form the arch up to Whitby’s West Cliff. Whitby also has literary connections with Bram Stoker’s famous book, Dracula that features the town. The vampire first coming ashore here from Transylvania in the guise of a black dog. The Dracula connection inspired the world famous Goth Festival, which now takes place twice a year, in the spring and around Hallowe’en. You’ll find a host of things to keep you occupied both in and around Whitby.
