Whitby, Yorkshire
Bed & Breakfast

There's something about Whitby... get deeply into the Abbey ruins, quirky shops, grand beach. Stay here in comfort with interesting owners


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


You’ll be fascinated ambling round Whitby with its cobbled streets, independent shops and deliciously dark literary links – there’s a great beach and Rick Stein recommended fish and chips too. Return to the prettiest terrace in town where the first floor is yours, the beds are for conking out in extreme comfort and light streams in through sash windows with shutters intact. Peter and Lucy have good taste, original art and exquisite antiques so everywhere you look there’s something beautiful. Breakfast is hidden in your own mini fridge: bread from Bothams, jams, yogurts and proper ground coffee. Walkers can tramp straight onto the moors.

We spent 2 nights here and it was fantastic! Peter and Lucy are extremely welcoming and helpful. Their house is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. Spacious room, comfortable bed and they provide you with a tasty continental breakfast which you can enjoy at your own leisure. Highly recommended and we will definitely return if and when we're next in the area!

Melanie, London

Beautiful georgian house, with lovely decor, peaceful and calm, and very well located for the sea and all major attractions in Whitby. We loved staying here - thank you!

Ben, London

We loved our stay here, such a lovely touch leaving breakfast so we could enjoy at our own pace. So nicely presented inside the rooms and everything we needed at hand. Perfect location, safe parking and spotless accommodation. A very special place which we will definitely return to. Thank you.

Brigitte, Lincoln

We stayed three nights with our two enormous dogs and were charmed both by Whitby and 19 St Hildas. The location is superb and there was easy access to all that Whitby has to offer. The room itself was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the flexibility of having breakfast in our room rather than having to be on parade as in other B & B's. Peter and Lucy are the perfect hosts and it was a pleasure to meet them. We were a little concerned about not having an ensuite bathroom but the reality was absolutely fine with no issues at all. Can't wait to return.

Sue, St albans

A lovely characterful house with large, beautifully furnished rooms. There are good views out including over some most attracive gardens. It was quiet, but very conveniently placed for exploring all the charms of Whitby and with plenty of places to eat nearby (including one of the best fish and chips restaurants). The do-it-yourself breakfast in the room suited me very well and meant I could be entirely flexible when I needed to be out fairly early. I was travelling on my own and it was ideal for me (but I was a bit confused initially about which way in to use).

Barbara, Winchester

Such a lovely place to stay! We stayed in the Pannett Room and were completely blown away - the room was utterly beautiful, and the bed was so sumptuous that I had to be pried out of it when it was time to check out! It was a joy to have the windows open, with a cool breeze and all the sounds of Whitby floating in. The private bathroom is beautiful, with a lovely deep tub that's perfect to relax in after a long day walking around town; there's also a fantastic dressing table to do hair or makeup. Having breakfast in the room was perfect, and Lucy & Peter were excellent hosts. We'll be back!

Rosie, Leeds

'19' oozed a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. The room was spacious and beautifully furnished. The king size bed was so comfortable that we are considering buying one just like it! The continental breakfast was delicious and easy to prepare because everything was at your fingertips. We stayed two wonderful nights with our Border Collie dog and would certainly recommend it.

Sue, Northamptonshire

19 was the perfect place to stay in out of season Whitby. Lucy and Peter were friendly and welcoming just like their lovely house. It was warm and cosy, with everything we could want. The 'in room' breakfast was great as it meant we could please ourselves, and our dog didn't get worried when we disappeared to eat. Highly recommended as a great place to stay.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Peter Trickett

  • Lewis Carroll was a regular visitor to this fine, listed, Georgian town house during his trips to Whitby.
  • We're perfectly placed to discover the beauty of the North Yorkshire coast and Moors National Park; with nearby fishing villages such as Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes, great beaches at Runswick Bay and the Moors beyond. An ideal base for walkers and cyclists.
  • The North Yorkshire Moors Railway takes you on a nostalgic journey through the spectacular Esk Valley and the opportunity to take in the vibrant market town of Pickering.
  • For a different view of this beautiful and historic coastline take one of the many leisure boats leaving Whitby harbour; sail on a replica of Captain Cook's HMS Endeavour or go whale watching.
  • Visit Whitby's charming museums and galleries. Pannett Park opposite the house is the home of the museum and art gallery and the Captain Cook Museum is a just a stroll into the town away.
  • A short drive takes you to May Beck for a wonderful woodland walk. Stop at the lovely outdoor tea room next to the spectacular Falling Foss waterfall.
