Best Yorkshire Accommodation
Day One Yorkshire Accommodation
I started in Whitby, home of Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel. And the point that James Cook sailed off into the horizon to explore the world.
My time on Yorkshire’s coastline took me to Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes Harbour, full of ghost, smuggler and pirate stories and charming cobbled streets lined with cottages leading down to the sea.
The Nest in Whitby – Two Bedrooms
Located in the famous seaside town of Whitby, The Nest is a bright and welcoming two-bedroom apartment with plenty of charm. The apartment has a stunning look, featuring beautiful furnishings and impeccable styling.
You’ll also have incredible views of Whitby Abbey in the distance! The perfect escape for couples or families of three, The Nest will provide a comfortable base when exploring North Yorkshire.
