"A charming, unique and rustic hidden gem"
Not having been to Whitby before this accommodation could be better situated as it is right in the heart of Whitby, just below the Abbey. Everything is literally on the doorstep and yet it is far enough back off the main street to escape the night time noise should you wish to. The room itself was just perfect - very tastefully done out to a very high standard and was immaculate. The Shepherds purse is set in a courtyard which we just loved, went home with ideas for our own garden. Read less

"A lovely mini break, nice room, nice people, great location will return."
We booked for 3 nights and found the room a little cosy but very clean and tastefully decorated. Good quality toiletries, good range of drinks and a lovely courtyard to sit in away from it all. The location allowed us to explore both sides of Whitby and nothing was too far away. Read less
Likes:
The overall feel of the place. My partner loved the shabby chic look and the quality of things was excellent.
Dislikes:
The Seagull chorus in the early hours but I am a light sleeper and we are at the seaside after all!
Only minor blip was not being able to get BBC 1 or 2 on the TV.

With its quaint cobbled streets and picturesque houses standing on the steep slopes of the River Esk, Whitby is dominated by its cliff top Abbey.
Situated along one of Britain’s finest stretches of coastline, with cliffs, lovely bays, safe sandy beaches and attractive villages, Whitby has been a port for more than 1,000 years and is still a seafarers' town today.

Laid next to the striking North Yorkshire Moors – for the most breath taking scenery.The narrow streets and alleys climbing down to the quayside still bustle as they have done for centuries and as folklore and tradition are very much part of the Whitby scene, visitors soon find themselves involved.

From these centuries-old streets, Where shepherds purse is based, 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St Mary, whose churchyard inspired Bram Stoker to write his world-famous novel, Dracula.

As well as attracting many famous visitors, Whitby has produced its own famous sons, not least Captain James Cook, and also the outstanding father and son whaling masters of the Scoresby family.
Each month sees performing arts - dance, music and carnivals are just a sample of what’s in store at the Whitby Folk Festival and Regatta, while the Captain Cook Festival celebrates the town’s proud seafaring tradition.From fish & chip and candyfloss culture to boutique bistros serving the finest food from the area.You are bound to be back time and time again.

Sea ..Sand ... Forest & The Majestic Moors...

Beautiful heather moorland lies at the very heart of the North York Moors National Park. Unenclosed and unsurpassed, this stunning landscape has a quiet drama all of its own.Responding sensitively to the changing seasons, the moorland is a special place whatever time of year.
