About this Luxury Bed and Breakfast

Union Place on Whitby's West Cliff is a charming Grade II Listed Georgian Adam Town House offering elegant and luxurious Bed and Breakfast accommodation at an affordable price.  We are located along Upgang Lane near Pannet Park, just a 5 minute stroll from the cliff tops, harbour and town centre.  The property is brimming with character features including our spectacular 'bottle window' running down the north façade of the building - a local landmark along Whitby's Open Top Bus Tour. 

Hosts Richard and Jane Pottas warmly welcome guests to Whitby.  The Bed and Breakfast has two uniquely styled bedrooms, a relaxing guest lounge and a sunny south facing garden.  Richard is a professional artist and his work is on show in parts of the guest house and can be viewed in his Whitby studio by appointment. 

Guest Rooms

There are two spacious luxury bedrooms to choose from situated on the first floor landing.  Both share a stunning large bathroom on the same landing which contains a large walk-in shower and a roll-top bath.

  • The Blue Room faces south and has glorious views across the moors and formal gardens.  Decoration is in Farrow and Ball colours which create a calm, relaxing atmosphere.  This room has character Georgian features and a great marble Regency fire surround.  A double bed has fine cotton bed linen ensuring a peaceful night's sleep and a refreshment tray contains a selection of Fair Trade teas and coffees.
  • The Green Room faces to the north and has sea views.  This room is decorated in Laura Ashley colours, fabrics and paper.  Offering ample space, the room has a feature 19th century Chinese Wedding Cabinet in a variety of hardwoods, a double bed with fine cotton bed linen and a hospitality tray with Fair Trade tea and coffee.


Breakfast is served in our charming basement dining room overlooking the garden.  We endeavour to use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, and special diets including vegetarians and vegans are happily catered for.
