A wildly beautiful rugged coastal area with over two and a half miles of uninterrupted golden sand which in high summer is idyllic for holiday makers, and attractive to surfers…

Legends are rife in this area and a short trip along the coast will bring you to Robin Hood Bay where the more notorious trade of smuggling was carried on. This quaint small town has cobbled streets and clusters tiny cottages which have the appearance of being ‘squashed’ into the gap between the sea and steep cliffs.

This historic small fishing town of Whitby is part of the Heritage Coast of North East England. It is a place of historical interest and was the home of the most famous 18th century explorer and voyager Captain James Cook. Whitby also has one of the finest examples of Anglo Saxon churches in England as seen above.

You’ll surely enjoy a visit to St.Mary’s church which is magnificently perched at the top of a superb fight of 199 steps. This wonderful church contains many fine examples of early 18th century craftsmanship.
