You’ll find Fossil Hunters near the River Esk, which meanders lazily through miles of countryside upstream and empties idly between Whitby’s harbour walls, a 20-minute stroll away.

It’s a peaceful setting, at the end of a row on the purpose-built, modern Whitehall Landing development, and is reached easily by car. With two parking spaces and a garage, it is the ideal spot for a family and dog-friendly break. Bring your bikes to explore in the saddle or set off on foot along the riverbank path; enjoy the freedom that this location affords for discovering both Whitby town and the surrounding scenery.

Inside is light and airy, and the three-storey four-bedroom house provides plenty of room for up to six guests. There is an ensuite master room offering glimpses of the river, marina and occasional steam train, plus two single rooms and a ground-floor double. The kitchen-diner makes a brilliant social space and from here you can access the cloakroom, relaxing lounge and the private, enclosed garden that’s edged by woodland.

This is a stylish, welcoming and hassle-free holiday home that’s a manageable walk to Whitby’s main attractions.

The Local Area

Fossil Hunters is a handy location for dog walkers. You can wander along the riverbank, and you’re on the right side of the Esk to hike around Whitby Abbey and the headland. Fossil hunters should visit Saltwick Bay or drive north of Whitby to Kettleness or Runswick Bay. It’s a flat walk along to the centre of Whitby; in around 15 minutes you’ll be at the famous Swing Bridge and the countless boutiques, cafes and award-winning fish and chip shops.
