Victorian Weekend


The very popular Victorian Weekend at Robin Hood's Bay in coming up - 4th, 5th & 6th December. Haven't found accommodation yet - we have vacancies.



This old photograph of Ruswarp will be 80-90 years old and shows the road bridge across the river. This was washed away in floods in the early 1930s and the current bridge was built in its place in 1936. There is a plaque on the bridge to this effect. You can see the railway bridge, just as it is today. In the background there is the church and vicarage and the Bridge Inn at the far side of the bridge with the Station Master's house to the right. In the foreground the white cottage is Waterloo Cottage located on the back road into Whitby. Railway Cottages are just off the left hand side of the photo. Nothing has changed too much since that time!

Dreary November


What a wet dreary month November is turning out to be!

Just the time to be thinking about a pre-Christmas break - a change of scenery. The shops are brightly decorated with seasonal goodies and Santa is beginning his personal appearances in many locations around the Whitby area (often accompanied by his reindeer).

Take advantage of our 3 for 2 night breaks - weekend or mid-week - for a bit of rest & relaxation plus retail therapy before the stresses of Christmas take over. Just call (01947 603801) or email ( to reserve your dates.
