FAQs

This is our first lodge break, what will it be like?

Expect a cosy retreat with all the comforts of home. Many lodges in Whitby offer stunning views, often with decks or patios to enjoy the scenery. Inside, you'll find fully equipped kitchens, comfy living areas, and sometimes a hot tub for that extra touch of luxury. It's a perfect base to explore the charming town and its surroundings.

What should I pack when visiting Whitby?

Pack for the weather, which can be unpredictable. Bring layers, waterproofs for coastal walks, and sturdy shoes for exploring the cobbled streets. Don't forget your swimsuit for hot tub lodges and beach days. Essentials like toiletries are usually provided, but it's worth bringing your favourites, especially if you're staying in a self-catering lodge.

Can you park outside the lodge?

Most lodges in Whitby come with parking, but it's always best to check before you book. Some might offer a dedicated spot right outside your lodge, while others may have a communal car park. It's a real perk to have your car nearby for easy unpacking and day trips.

What if it rains during my lodge break?

Rainy days are a chance to explore Whitby's indoor attractions. Check out the Whitby Museum or the Captain Cook Memorial Museum. Many lodges come with board games, books, and TVs, perfect for a cosy day in. And let's be honest, a hot tub is even better when it's a bit chilly outside!

Can I get food delivered to my lodge?

Absolutely! Whitby has a range of delivery options from local restaurants and takeaways. Supermarkets also offer delivery services, ideal for stocking up your lodge's kitchen. Some local farm shops might deliver fresh produce too – perfect for a home-cooked meal in your comfy retreat.

Is Whitby a good place to visit ‘off-season’?

Whitby is charming year-round. Off-season visits mean fewer crowds and often cheaper rates for lodges. The town's gothic charm shines in the autumn and winter months, and many local businesses stay open all year. Plus, you can enjoy brisk walks along the beach without the summer hustle.

Will my hot tub be cleaned before we arrive?

Definitely. Lodges with hot tubs ensure they are thoroughly cleaned and maintained between guests. You can usually expect the hot tub to be ready to go upon arrival, so you can jump straight into relaxation mode.

Are there any dog-friendly lodges in Whitby?

Yes, many lodges in Whitby welcome furry friends. It's a great area for dogs with plenty of walks and pet-friendly beaches. Always check the lodge's pet policy before booking, and remember to pack the essentials for your pooch.

What local attractions should we not miss?

Don't miss the iconic Whitby Abbey, inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. Take a boat trip from Whitby Harbour or enjoy the traditional Whitby Fish and Chips. For a unique experience, hop on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for stunning countryside views.

How accessible are lodges for those with mobility issues?

Many lodges cater to guests with mobility concerns, offering ground-floor bedrooms and walk-in showers. It's important to discuss your specific needs when booking to ensure the lodge is suitable. Whitby itself can be challenging with its steep streets, but there are accessible attractions and activities available.
