Whitby Holiday Cottages – The Perfect Base For A Sea Food Discovery

Whitby is the perfect place to discover a world of sea food tastes combined with great accommodation.

Nestled on the North Yorkshire coastline, Whitby has been a popular destination for holiday makers and anglers dating back to before the Victorian times. The long golden beaches stretch out along the coastline like beams of sunshine and the old cobbled streets are flanked by charming weathered cottages, interspersed with Inns, where one can seek shelter should a sea squall threaten to draw in. Other attractions include the age old Abbey, which stands proud against the skyline, watching over the harbour and town below, the many steps winding up the hillside to reach it, their edges warn down from years of tourist foot fall.  However it’s not just the spectacular landscapes and thought provoking scenery that entices people to Whitby, the sea food available and wealth of restaurants is also a factor that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Fish and Chips Are A Must

Famous for its fishing heritage, it’s perhaps of little surprise that Whitby is also famous for its fish and chips. There is a wealth of fish and chip restaurants that are both located in the town and dotted around the harbour, with the majority providing delicious locally caught fish, dipped in golden, light batter. Whitby holiday cottages are ideal if you don’t want to eat in one of the restaurants, as you could always get them to take away!

Catching or Locally Sourcing

Many keen anglers visit Whitby and fish from the either the harbour wall, beach or from one of the many fishing charters available. This can be hugely rewarding especially if you decide to keep your catch. However if fishing isn’t for you, locally caught fish and shellfish can be bought at one of the many fish mongers, or the Whitby fish market, which is an experience not to be missed. Should you purchase some fresh fish, Whitby holiday cottages are the ideal accommodation for cooking as they have fully furnished kitchens that mean you can enjoy preparing and enjoying the fish in the comfort of your holiday home.
