    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This picturesque little village is well worth a stop if you're in the area. Park your car at the top of the hill in the carpark and head down the walkway on the hillside. You'll see dozens of homes perched on the hill with little walkways leading to them. I'd hate to try and move in or out of them, you can't get a vehicle very close to them.
    After wandering by the homes take a walk along the beach, admiring the scenery, looking for fossels in the rocks and just playing about in the sand with a bucket and spade. It's quite a lovely area.
    When you're ready for a drink there is a small cafe overlooking the beach which offers various refreshments including ice cream.

    Climb up to the abbey, stand and watch don't forget to watch out for Dracula's ship coming in.
    Romantic but a bit scary.

    Stop smiling Susan, this is a serious argument

    In the old town there is a sign saying "Argument Yard" at an entrance to a back yard. I have no idea what the yard is all about but I loved the "funny picture opportunity"...

    DON'T STAY AFTER DARK.

    On the coast, betwixt Whitby and Scarborough. Spooky little village where they still build Whicker Men.
