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 1000 years and is still a seafarer’s town today. 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.
Each of the cosy rooms within The Shepherd’s Purse are individually designed and decorated for a comfortable stay. Each of the rooms are supplied with fluffy white towels and a generous hospitality tray stocked with Yorkshire tea, herbal teas, instant and ground coffee with cafetiere and biscuits. Loose floral-herbal teas with a little tea strainer add something different for tea lovers. Natural bath and shower products with soap and fresh white flannels are supplied to each room. Each room has a hairdryer and an iron can be requested.
Your stay at The Shepherd’s Purse is on a room only basis however, there are many cafes nearby. 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.
