Lythe is a sweet village, just inland from busier coastal towns. There’s a pub serving good food, a local shop and it sits smack bang on some great walking routes – brilliant if you’re holidaying with a canine friend. On your doorstep you can visit Sandsend and its sandy beach or head to Whitby – an historic and beautiful coastal town with its piers, Gothic architecture,
the abbey and super restaurants with plenty of local seafood. Robin Hood’s Bay is another top tip to experience the wildand rugged history of this beautiful coastline.

There are train and bus options for getting here, but not as easy as heading to Chapel Cottage by car.
