GALATEA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Whitby - Galatea

5 guests (3 bedrooms)

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats are pleased to present Whitby Lighthouse. It lies on the East Coast just outside of Whitby and close to the North Yorkshire Moors. There are two holiday cottages on the Whitby station:- Galatea and Vanguard. There is no operational fog horn at this site.

The High Cliffs of the North Yorkshire coast hide a number of small ports, the most significant of which is Whitby. Captain Cook was apprenticed to a Whitby shipowner and made the first of his epochal voyages of discovery (1768-1771) in a covered Whitby built 'cat' - a small ship rigged collier renamed Endeavour. Whitby has a beautiful sandy beach. Nine miles away from Whitby is the village of Goathland, the setting for the drama Heartbeat in which you can see the stunning scenery which abounds in the area.

Access roads to some of the lighthouse sites are narrow with limited passing places and, dependent on the season and site, there is the possibility of overhanging vegetation due to cutting restrictions during bird breeding seasons or other environmental reasons.

Guests should be aware that the lighthouses and equipment need regular and sometimes emergency maintenance. Therefore visits by maintenance staff may occur at any time during the year. However, staff will do their best to ensure guest privacy at all times.

The property was fabulous. The view was spectacular, the cottage was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We loved it and wished we had stayed another night. The welcome hamper was a wonderful surprise and very appreciated. Thank you.
However, getting in touch with the housekeeper was a problem. We were lucky there was a lady in the other cottage and was able to get the code for us.
