Calico Cottage welcomes guests on a cosy and memorable stay, with all of the town’s attractions within easy walking distance, including the beach, harbour and Abbey. You are located just off the cobbled Church Street, up a little side street so away from the hustling crowds. Back in 1670 this was once a pump house and there is a natural well under what is now the kitchen floor, the cottage then became the home of a master jet worker and his family in 1891. The town is still very proud of the jet jewellery made here, which was made popular by Queen Victoria. Whist here you can browse the many jewellers as well as visit the jet works museum.
The cottage is accessed via five stone steps which lead you up to the front door. Stepping inside you are welcomed into the kitchen which has a dining table for two. Although small in size, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you could wish for to rustle up your favourite meals for two. The bathroom is also on this floor with a shower over the bath. Stairs lead up from the kitchen to the living room. The living room is very cosy with a sofa and armchair in front of the electric stove, perfect for snug nights in. Up to the first floor you have the bedroom, with a double sleigh bed as well as a wardrobe and drawers for all of your belongings.
The old town is brimming with quirky independent shops, an abundance of cafés and restaurants and a great choice of pubs and gin bars. The 199 steps lead up to the cliff top where St Mary’s Church overlooks the town, next to the Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey. In the harbour there is the HMS Endeavour, a replica of Captain Cook’s ship which was built and sailed from Whitby on his voyages of discovery. The ship is now a floating restaurant with a Captain Cook exhibition, a great spot for discovering more about the history of this seafaring town. Join a ghost walk through the town, visit the museums, you can even see a shipwreck at low tide at Saltwick Bay or look up into the cliffs to spot the smugglers tunnels, the clues to the towns colourful past are all around you.
This is an ideal destination for dogs, they will be in heaven on the nearby beaches and many of the pubs and cafes here are dog friendly, there is even a dog bakery in Whitby. For walkers and those who love to take in the scenery you have many scenic coastal villages along the Cleveland Way to visit, as well as other popular walks such as the Cinder Track. You are also surrounded by the North York Moors National Park. There are ancient forests, rolling hills of heather as far as the eye can see, waterfalls and valleys all to discover.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 7 guests.
