But a parking permit is provided by the Guesthouse (BUT be sure to fill it in correctly - the local... More

We stayed here for two nights in one of the top floor attic bedrooms. It was well equipped, comfortable and airy. The owner and staff were friendly, and the excellent breakfasts were freshly cooked. The location is perfect - a very short walk to Whitby harbour/town and to the West Cliff.
