A very well situated guest house, being only five minutes walk from the centre of wonderful whitby. The owners, Ron & Liz, are lovely and welcoming, whilst allowing you your privacy. Dogs are also welcome, which is a massive bonus. Breakfast is top notch and well worth wrenching yourself out of bed for. We will definitely stay here again.

Great stay with my Wife and two young kids, stayed in the family room on top floor, B&B is clean and tidy and owners couldn't of been more friendly or helpful. The breakfast was great and overall its a great base to explore Whitby from.

It is in a central location although there is a steep climb back up from the town centre! You can easily walk down to the harbour or the beach. The owners of the guest...
