This attractive cottage on the Whitby Lighthouse site has sitting room, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom, twin bedroom, single bedroom, bathroom and shower room. Features include oil central heating, electric woodburner, electric hob and oven.

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Galatea at Whitby Lighthouse. Galatea is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse, which lies on the East Coast just outside Whitby and close to the North Yorkshire Moors. The High Cliffs of the North Yorkshire coast hide a number of small ports, the most significant of which is Whitby.

Captain James Cook was apprenticed to a Whitby shipowner and made the first of his voyages of discovery (1768-1771) in a covered Whitby built 'cat' - a small ship rigged collier renamed 'Endeavour'. Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff and spreading below, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets running down to the busy quayside and harbour entrance.

To the south lie the coastal villages and resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Inland lie the heather moorlands of the North Yorkshire Moors and, further afield, York.
