About the property

Other Activities:

Salmon and Sea Trout fishing is available.

The High Cliffs of the North Yorkshire coast hide a number of small ports, the most significant of which is Whitby. Captain James Cook was apprenticed to a Whitby shipowner and made the first of his voyages of discovery (1768-1771) in a covered Whitby built 'cat' - a small ship rigged collier renamed 'Endeavour'.

Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff and spreading below. The town is a maze of alleyways and narrow streets running down to the busy quay side and harbour entrance. To the south lie the coastal villages and resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Inland lie the heather moorlands of the North Yorkshire Moors, and, further afield, York.

There are some wonderful cities and towns throughout North Yorkshire including:

The seaside town of Scarborough.

The pretty, port town of Whitby.

The former fishing town of Filey.

The historic, walled city of York.
