Who are Shoreline Cottages?

Shoreline Cottages was set up in 1999 with the intention of creating a business that provides high quality Whitby holiday cottages close to the sea.  It is an unfortunate but true fact that Britain today has little self-catering of quality on its coastlines.

Many Whitby holiday cottages are let as an after thought and are ill equipped, poorly renovated and badly serviced.  We aim to change that, firstly on the Yorkshire coast and then in other areas of the country. We believe that our holiday cottages in Whitby are the best on offer and wish to extend our number.

In order to get the ball rolling, Shoreline Cottages purchased a number of holiday cottages in Whitby.  Some of these have been sold to third parties as an investment which we manage and we now look after a growing number of comparable properties owned by people like you.

It is our intention to build up our portfolio in a controlled manner and we will only add a small number of properties each year to ensure that occupancy levels remain high and that our quality brand does not suffer. We average 38 bookings per property per year across our portfolio - far more than any competitor.

A number of our competitors create occupancy by offering property at a very low, unprofitable price to its owner or worse still, make promises that they cannot keep on occupancy levels.  As such, we will only accept cottages in Whitby and surrounding areas that meet our strict standards of quality and that is of a minimum 4 star standard.

Shoreline Cottages' administration office is in York, North Yorkshire and we have local staff based in Whitby.

What Should I Do Next?

Your property will be inspected by David Haycox of Shoreline Cottages or our manager in Whitby, Billy Watt.  If you feel that your property will meet our standards, then please call on 01904 607 087 or E-mail on and we will get back to you promptly to discuss your Whitby holiday cottage.
