Thorpe Hall

Whitby, Yorkshire
Bed & Breakfast

Angelique offers you simple TV-free bedrooms in her listed manor house five miles from Whitby - with wondrous views of headland and sea


7 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Arrive and listen: nothing, bar the wind in the trees and the odd seagull. The eye gathers glimmering sea and mighty headland, the final edge of the moors… are there still smugglers? This old listed house smells of polish and flowers, the drawing room breathes history. Angelique is a delight and has furnished it all, including TV-free bedrooms (one downstairs), with an eclectic mix of old and new; wonky walls and creaky floors add to the atmospheric feel. She’s hung contemporary art on ancient walls and made a veg patch with daughter Phoebe. David helps out with simple breakfast when he’s not globetrotting. The very opposite of stuffy.

The House with the big garden is gorgeous and Angelique is a wonderful host. I would recommend the Squire's room with it's beautiful oak panelling, overlooking the garden. The lovely Robin Hoods Bay is just a 10min walk away.

We stayed this autumn and had a wonderful time at Thorpe Hall. Angelique is a thoughtful and accommodating host. We wanted rooms near to our two children and Angelique made it happen effortlessly, despite one of the rooms not being available at the time of our booking. It’s testimony to her hostessing skills that the returning guest, whose room we needed, was more than happy to be flexible. Our rooms under the eves were magical and for the children especially, like something from a novel. Her dogs were a big hit with our girls and Angelique sweetly allowed them lots of play time. Great stay!

I spent a couple of nights at Thorpe Hall in Fylingthorpe last week and want to mention what a great place it is. Angelique is a treasure, the house is fabulous and historic and it is in a great location. Loved it, she just needs better coffee!


I have just returned from a three-night stay, and it was fantastic. Angelique's the soul of that place. She's a wonderful host. Elegant, welcoming, polite. I plan on going back to finish the Yorkshire execution of a personal project. After being at Thorpe Hall once it's hard to be in the area but not there. I'd like to add that all Thorpe Hall members were great and gracious.

Valentina, Guildford

We loved everything about Thorpe Hall and would highly recommend it!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Angelique Russell

  • A quick fifteen minute walk through the gardens, down the old railway line, aka Cinder Path, and a footpath takes you straight to Robin Hood's Bay beach . . . rock pooling, fossilling, pubs and cafes await!
  • Why not walk to Ravenscar and visit the seal colonies? Common seal pups can be seen in June and July, whilst grey seal pups come ashore in November.
  • Walk the Cleveland Way into Whitby . . . the coast hugging footpath takes you up and down, emerging at the cliff top abbey before descending the 199 steps featuring in Bram Stoker's Dracula and through the streets and harbour of Captain Cook.
  • An afternoon at Falling Foss is a must! Gorgeous walk through the woods with the reward of a homemade cream tea . . . yummmmm!
  • Why not curl up with a good book either in the garden or one of our sitting rooms?
  • Take a journey on the North York Moors Railway . . . running through the heart of the National Park, start off at Whitby or Grosmont, hop off at Gothland, back on for lunch and an explore in Pickering before returning home.
