The famous explorer James Cook began his seafaring career as an apprentice in Whitby, working for John Walker and living in the attic of his 17th century house situated on the harbour. Whilst this isn’t available as a holiday cottage to rent in Whitby, it is well worth a visit during your stay. In this stunning period building you will find the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, boasting an amazing collection of original charts, drawings and letters by James Cook, along with information about his explorations and the dangers he faced along the way.

Self-Catering In Whitby

As a fishing port, Whitby offers self-catering visitors the opportunity to sample amazingly fresh, locally caught fish and seafood. There is a popular market in the harbour, where on certain weekdays you will find Whitby’s fishermen selling their catches. Make your own delicious dishes for friends and family in your self catering holiday cottage, or take advantage of the professionally prepared cuisine available in one of the many restaurants.

The impressive ruins of Whitby Abbey are a must-see attraction. The original building dates from Anglo-Saxon times and served as a monastery until the Vikings destroyed it during raids. Like so many of England’s beautiful Abbeys, Whitby surrendered to Henry VIIIs dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century. Today visitors come to enjoy the stunning views and take an audio tour of the Abbey, which will transport you back in time.
