From exciting seaside towns that are perfect for family fun to unspoilt scenery where the North York Moors run into the coast, no matter what you expect from a holiday beside the sea, the Yorkshire Coast will have something to suit you.
With a host of fantastic towns and villages, you’re sure to find a wonderful place to stay in our collection – discover the quirky village of Runswick Bay, the peaceful and beautiful shores of Sandsend or the historical village of Staithes.
The dramatic and beautiful coastal town of Whitby is famed as the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula and has since inspired a wealth of artists and writers who visit these shores.
Climb the 199 steps up to the crumbling ruins of ancient Whitby Abbey, built in the 7th century, which remains an iconic Whitby landmark today. Visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, hop on the Esk Valley Railway for a trip up the coast, or for a real fright, head to the Dracula Experience.
At low tide, you can even walk along the beach to the peaceful neighbouring seaside village of Robin Hood’s Bay.
Just down the coast, south of Whitby, lies popular family-friendly Scarborough town. If you’re planning classic beach days, this is the place for it with North Bay promenade and three sandy beaches to choose from.
Children will love splashing about at Alpamare UK Waterpark or visiting the Luna Park Funfair, and if you would like to stay just out of town yet within reach of these exciting attractions, why not pick out a cottage in Filey or Cayton Bay?
Stop by Sewerby Hall, The Bayle Museum, or Bridlington Priory for a little history, enjoy family days building sandcastles on the beach, and when you’re ready to explore the rugged coast further, head over to RSPB Bempton Cliffs where you can spot puffins during the breeding season.
