Are you looking for self-catering accomodation in Whitby to make your stay a bit more special?
Wynd cottage is a place to relax and de-stress or the accommodation you'll want to come back to after enjoying all that Whitby, and North Yorkshire has to offer. It has been lovingly restored to be a Cosy Cottage that sleeps 6 and is complete with facilities including Wi-Fi, dishwasher, HD televisions, washing machine , log burning stove etc. A five minute stroll from the cottage takes you to the swing bridge, the harbour front or the beach. The outside area includes a washhouse and a patio area with seating where you can enjoy the stunning views.

If it is historical charm that attracts you to Whitby, you will be living in one of the oldest surviving cottages on the Yorkshire coast. Wynd Cottage has stood on the west cliff with the most spectacular views of Whitby Harbour for 500 or more years**. For everyone else without a passion for old cottages, we've probably got your needs covered as well:

Family Holiday Cottage in Whitby with Views

For family holiday accommodation in Whitby we have included all the flexibility and facilities we possible can. The "sleeps 6" includes three bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with a king size that can be split to make two singles and a final twin room. Whilst the adults may be content with enjoying the views, children may enjoy the internet enabled TV's in their rooms or the PS3 or there is plenty of space to play and enjoy being together in both the lounge and the dining room. No compromises have been made on the self catering aspects, the kitchen is extremely well equipped and the dining room / second living room can easily seat 6 at the table. To avoid bathroom congestion there is second toilet / WC off the passageway.

Folk week'rs, Goth week'rs, Fishers, Golfers, Explorers & Festival Goers

The location of Wynd Cottage means all the venues in Whitby are just a short walk away, so it's the perfect accommodation for small groups wanting to share their fun and passions with friends. Our hope is that your stay at Wynd Cottage will help build extra special memories. We will adjust our booking calendar for most of the main Whitby events and festivals to make sure your full week stay covers all the main dates so you and your friends wont have to miss out.

If your group are here to enjoy the year long attractions of Whitby, the coast or the North Yorkshire Moors then Wynd Cottage could make your stay even more special. After a day enjoying your sport or hobby, you can nip to one of great real ale pubs, eat out at any of town centre restaurants, cook for yourselves or call for a take away and just relax in comfort. In the depths of Winter you can also enjoy the warmth from the log burning stove.

More details of what goes on in and around Whitby are available on the "Whitby" pages

Please Note: Although groups of friends are welcome, Wynd Cottage is not suitable as stag/hen or party type accommodation. The booking contract may ask you to confirm this.

Sleeps 6, Sleeps 5, Sleeps 4 or even Sleeps 2

Standard bookings and prices throughout the year are for 6 people for one week Saturday to Saturday. However that doesn't mean you need six people to stay. We can offer a small discount if there's only two of you sharing a room, this reflects our lower cleaning and linen costs. So Wynd Cottage can sleep 6, 5, 4, 3 or 2. At off peak times we can also offer further reductions for couples wanting a Winter, Autumn break or Spring break. During the off peak times the cottage will also be available for short breaks, mid-week and long weekends. Please see the rates and booking pages for more details.

Holiday Cottage Close to Town Centre and Beach

It's rare in Whitby to find holiday cottages with great views, some outside space, easy access and not far from parking spaces. The cottage fronts on to the narrow, one way Cliff Street where pedestrian traffic far exceeds vehicle traffic. Turn right out of the cottage, up Cliff Street and you are soon on Kyber Pass heading down to the beach or up past the Whale Bone Arch on the way to the Pavilion and West Cliff. Turn Left and you are at the shops on Flowergate on your way to the Swing Bridge and the East side of town. There's not much to see from the front of the cottage (the views are round at the back) although at times you can experience a parade of the weird and wonderful people that add spice to the character of Whitby life.

A Haven from the Hustle & Bustle of The Town

The back of the cottage and terrace gives relative privacy as well as another route to the Harbour. Here is an almost secret gem of Whitby, not many visitors stumble upon it and only a few locals use it. The covered passage way at the side of the cottage leads to a path and steps known as Mission Hall Yard and gives almost private access for Wynd Cottage Guests and the few cottages behind and below.

From the haven of tranquility on the terrace you can watch and listen to the goings on in the town, the harbour, lifeboat launches, rowing club races, climbers on the 199 steps, the sea, the tides and some stunning skies.

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage

Yes dogs are welcome at Wynd Cottage. Our lurcher "Charlie" loves to stay here. All the normal caveats apply, well behaved, not left alone, kept off the furniture, not in the bed rooms etc. Being dog friendly, we don't charge extra for your pet however a returnable deposit will apply Please see the rates and booking pages for more details.

All You Need to Know Before you Book

Please see "The Cottage" pages before you book, we have included as much detail as we can so you are sure you making the right choice. This also includes details about what some might consider as negative points, we certainly don't want you having any unwelcome surprises after you have arrived. From the experience of one local hotel it's even worth warning guests that there are seagulls at the seaside and they can be noisy! More importantly there are notes about access, steps and stairs etc. so you can assess if you will be comfortable with the accessibility if you aren't so good on your pins.


*Smokers, smoking, we would say smokers welcome but that's going a bit far. We need to make sure the cottage stays fresh for non-smokers that stay after you. So outside, no problem, there's a covered passageway for you if it's raining and you should find an ashtray in the wash house for you to use on the terrace.

**Note: We are still exploring the building's history. See the cottage history pages for research so far.
