About this Holiday Cottage

Penrith House is a former fisherman's cottage and it situated in Cliff Street, one of the oldest and most historic streets in Whitby.  The cottage has lovely views to the Abbey and sea, and easily sleeps up to six people.  Cliff Street is in the heart of Whitby and in an excellent location, a stone's throw from the pier, beach and quayside.  This makes a fantastic holiday home base for exploring Whitby,  the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and is ideal for families and couples alike. 

Well behaved pets are also very welcome and there is a wonderful choice of scenic walks and beaches for them to explore closeby. The cottage is also superbly equipped for families and there are many exciting attractions to visit closeby such as the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, The Bram Stoker Dracula Experience and Whitby Whale Watching. Or head out and explore the nearby beautiful moorland aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Railway which departs from the town.
