This property is 3 minutes walk from the beach. Set in a 17th-century building, this guest accommodation serves local, fresh seafood in its restaurant and has elegant rooms. Whitby’s sandy beach is less than 10-minutes’ walk from the White Horse & Griffin.

Tea and coffee facilities are provided in all rooms. Some rooms have original features such as bare stone walls or a wooden-beamed ceiling.

A log fire features in the White Horse’s bar and bistro, which serves both vegetarian and meat dishes.

Whitby town centre and Rail station are within a 5-minute walk of the property. Whitby’s Grade I listed abbey, and the top of the 199 steps that connect it to the seafront, can be reached in less than 10 minutes on foot.

This is our guests' favourite part of Whitby, according to independent reviews.
