Group accommodation in WhitbyA friend of my wife's is getting married and they've been let down by their original provider of cottages for a (very genteel) hen do.....I was wondering if anyone could recommend anywhere in the Whitby area that would be able to put up 20 lovely ladies towards the end of September? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

1Robin Hood's Bay is 5 miles south of Whitby and is full of rental cottages. It also has at least 5 pubs and also restaurants (The Wayfarers is excellent). Most of the cottages are small but there are many of them so 20 people could be within a 2 minute walk of each other.
robinhoodsbaycottages.co.uk is who we've used several times.

2DJRA - what a great website! I have just found a former, as yet unconverted naval jail in Latvia, where you an have a full-on prison experience.
Chaqu'un a son gout...

4I think that DJRA must have been the name of a 'poster' whose contribution has, for some reason, been removed - most odd.
Anyway the recommended website is QuirkyAccom.com - and it is wild!
As for chacun - it looks like I wrote the post very late at night - so that's my explanation & I'm sticking to it!

5haha! it's a cool website.
The search is quite basic but very original: "caves","windmills and lighthouses", "former transport", "treehouses"!!!
I guess you should choose your accommodation first then buy the flight (rather than the other way around)!
As for Whitby... you have the choice of a windmill, a railway carriage, or an unconventionally furnished hotel.

6It is good isn't it? I rather liked the look of the German tram cars, the only problem being that they are - in Germany, which is not on any of my wish lists, having worked for a German company for 6 years at one point in my career.
Do you know the Isle of Wight? There is a fab self catering place right in the middle of nowhere, which is an entire railway station, complete with both platforms & station signs, then just a lawn where the rails used to be. It was converted by the owners, taking years as a real labour of love: they are really nice.
I haven't stayed there but it is in a wonderfully peaceful location.
I still haven't ever been to Whitby, though that is on my list. I understand that one of the best places to stay is Robin Hood's Bay
