I love the seaside and off season I kind of love it more.
Whitby is a quaint little seaside town that doesn’t really seem to have an off season but in the winter I guess it is a little quieter than in the middle of the Summer.
At the beginning of March we had been married for 11 years! Not a massive milestone I admit but it is just time seems to have flown.
Anyway, we had a little trip to Whitby just us, to reflect on the last decade plus one.
We stayed at the delightful La Rosa hotel which is on the seafront. All the rooms are themed – Stoker refers to Dracula (as of course the book was written and set at Whitby Abbey) and as Lewis Carroll spent some time at La Rosa there is also Carroll.
Unfortunately with my dillying and dallying and undecisiveness by the time we booked it there weren’t any seafront rooms available but we did have a lovely room nevertheless called Arabesque. It was described as “inside the genie’s bottle” and didn’t disappoint with lots of little details and crammed full of things to look at.
Check out the amazing bath!
I do love my breakfast and I loved the quirky little basket that brekkie was delivered in in the morning. We had hot cheese pastry, boiled eggs, granola, yoghurt, fruit and cake as well as fresh coffee. It was scrumptious!
Whitby is just the perfect place for a night away – there are lots of great bars and restaurants as well as quirky little shops and beautiful scenery to admire on a coastal walk.
Next time I will organise myself and get one of the front rooms with a sea view to admire when stuffing my face with the delicious breakfast!
