I've read the 2010 thread now closed "2-3 nights in the Whitby area", we're also looking at between York and Whitby for 3 nights in late May 2011. Normally with Trip Advisor and say somewhere like Bath I can spend 5/10 mins and find something I like. Pinning down Whitby is proving much more difficult.
We're Heartbeat fans so Goathland is on the list of places to see, rather than actually staying at the Aidensfield Arms. We'll drive up from London (Wimbledon), spend 3 nights in North Yorkshire before driving to Manchester to flyi onto Belfast on a 7.30pm flight on a Sat nght.
We've stayed in the Cotswolds before so have looked at country style hotels in Yorkshire as well as modern apartments like The Sands in Scarborough. Ideally we'd like either something self contained, a cottage with modern fittings, with a nice sitting area with a flat screen TV, WIFI is a must. Or an older hotel with modern bedrooms in an old building, nice common areas and yes WIFI. Somewhere with sitting rooms like the Pudding Club Hotel in the Cotswolds would be great. Or a very good B&B.
Any suggestions appreciated!
Budget is hard to to be precise. Perhaps a max of GBP150 a night.
