This was our first holiday break away with our dog. We were so impressed with the dog friendly attitude of the hosts and Whitby in general. Ian and Sarah made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast first class. It's a lovely location too. Would definitely book again. Sarah and Martyn Barnsley
