Old Curiosity Shop (SC73)
They say curiosity is one of the great secrets of happiness and this renovated cottage for two offers plenty of intrigue. The former shell and fossil shop is located on historic Cliff Street - making the location spot on!Add to shortlist Share
Discover what’s behind the shop front façade of this beautifully renovated Grade II listed building. Old Curiosity Shop dates back to 1654 and was once an emporium selling ammonite brooches, jet and fine antique china to the pleasure seekers of Victorian Whitby. Today the three-storey holiday cottage is one of the finest on the West Side offering contemporary living for couples.
Enter straight into the spacious kitchen and you’ll be drawn to the Yorkshire cast iron open range. We love the well-thought-out Shaker styling that provides ample food prep and dining space, a washer /dryer and dishwasher – everything to make your life easy.
Climb the stairs to the lounge to catch a glimpse of the sea and views across to Whitby Abbey from all floor levels. It’s a relaxing lounge with a large comfy sofa, Freeview SKY TV, free WiFi and another period fireplace - although the modern central heating will keep you cosy! You'll also find a small bathroom on this floor.
The second floor bedroom is up the winding staircase. There’s a double bed and space for a cot or z-bed. The generous en suite has a bath big enough for two as well as a shower attachment. If you’re looking for a romantic, pet-friendly cottage in Whitby this should pique your interest.

What a wonderful time we had in the Old Curiosity Shop cottage. The cottage was so quaint and clean and the location fantastic. Thank you Shoreline Cottages for a wonderful staycation!!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Mandy, David and the Team for your friendly, professional and excellent service. We had an unforgettable time in Whitby and we loved the Old Curiosity Shop. Everything was perfect, from the pre-booking through to altering the dates and checking in. We will definitely return, no doubt about it. And we will definitely make Shoreline our first stop for our accommodation needs. I think many companies can learn from your outstanding approach! Thanks again and have a great season. I'm already thinking of coming back in 2022!
Fabulously located and well appointed cottage. Short stroll to the front and all the shops. Spotlessly clean. Everything you require is in the cottage. Special shout for the huge bath, easily fits two. Will definitely return.
