Immerse yourself in Whitby’s history at one of its oldest fisherman’s cottages. Greenfingers, along cobbled Church Street, had already housed a generation when local apprentice Captain Cook embarked on his exploration to Australia, around 1768.

Set over four floors and with steps throughout, Greenfingers has been superbly restored. It provides a family of six with the best views of Whitby’s 199 abbey steps, or the sea from upper windows – location doesn’t get more popular. We’ve rated this cottage five stars for its luxury and modern comforts including wood-burning stove, free WiFi and Netflix account. Please be aware that there are some steep stairs typical of Whitby cottages in the property. All three king-size double bedrooms are spacious and one has an en suite shower. The family shower room is generous too, whilst the farmhouse-style kitchen diner on the lower ground floor is immaculately designed, with under-floor heating a fabulous touch.

Out back you’ll love lounging on the patio, away from the bustle of the street. Once you’ve parked your car, you might not need it again as everything’s at hand. Hadley’s mouth-watering fish and chips, Fortune’s kipper smokehouse and the Duke of York pub are amongst our favourites.

Mrs S, Sheffield

Lovely cottage in a great location, finished to a high standard. Very helpful staff.

Mr T, Sheffield

Great cottage to stay in. My only complaint is the shower door downstairs is too small for the larger person. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was out of this world. Living room was homely. Not too much tat in the rooms. Really relaxing. Thank you .

R & K, Harrogate.

Wow ! What more can we say! Everything you need in a great location. Perfect. Will be back.
