White Horse Yard is one of Whitby's old yards, dating back centuries and rising steeply from Church Street up to the Abbey Plain, by steps and footpath only. To either side of the steps are quaint fisherman's cottages, dating back hundreds of years.
The 'White Horse and Griffin' Inn, at the entrance to the yard, dates back to 1691 and is steeped in history. The first stagecoach left here, for York in 1788. Charles Dickens is said to have visited and eaten there. Captain James Cook and William Scoresby both used rooms at the 'White Horse and Griffin' to hire their crews for their voyages of discovery. George Stephenson also used to meet here with his investors for his railway.
All children, including babies, are very welcome, however , no equipment is provided, but parents are welcome to bring their own.
As this is a traditional fisherman's cottage, visitors must appreciate that there are some steps up to the holiday cottage and steep stairs within, so is unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems.
