Dog-friendly accommodation in Whitby
Boasting some of the best walkies in all of Yorkshire, Whitby is a wonderful choice for a dog-friendly holiday. To one side of this much-loved seaside resort lies the undulating countryside of the North York Moors, while the other offers a glorious stretch of sandy shore which runs all the way to Sandsend. It is, therefore, the perfect destination to experience the best of Yorkshire’s countryside and coast. There are two beaches in Whitby on either side of the River Esk; the smaller Tate Hill Beach allows dogs all year round, and the larger West Cliff Beach with its colourful beach huts has seasonal restrictions.
You and your pup can go fossil hunting on the Dinosaur Coast by day and take part in a spooky ghost or Dracula guided walk by night. The Cleveland Way walking trail offers more great opportunities for scenic hikes, with the artist’s haunt of Staithes in one direction and the picture-postcard fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay in the other. And for pet-friendly days out, let your hound explore the atmospheric grounds of Whitby Abbey, enjoy a magical journey by steam train on the North York Moors Railway or hop aboard one of the pleasure boats run by Whitby Coastal Cruises. After a day full of adventure, relax by the fire in one of our dog-friendly cottages in Whitby. Ranging from large properties for big groups to small, secluded retreats for couples; some have special extras like hot tubs, swimming pools and wood burners and most offer an enclosed garden for dogs to stretch their paws.
