You Can Now Stay In A Whitby Lighthouse With Spectacular Sea Views

If you thought you’d seen epic sea views before, you were wrong – because the views from both Vanguard and Galatea are completely unmatched. Overlooking the vast North Sea, the two cosy cottages reside on the high cliffs of North Yorkshire, both sitting at either side of Whitby Lighthouse – which once served to protect sailors.

Now available to stay in following the automation of UK lighthouses, the two cottages not only provide stunning views – but close access to incredible coastal spots such as Saltwick Bay, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Sandsend, making for the perfect getaway for those wanting to explore the delights of the Yorkshire coast.

Each cottage comes equipped with an outdoor dining area (making the most of those magnificent sea views!), with all the amenities that you’d expect of a home-from-home style getaway. And with three bedrooms available in each cottage, it’s the perfect spot for a group or family escape.

The cottages are beautifully decorated with a subtle nautical theme giving a nod to the lighthouse’s history and location, with a beautiful family-style kitchen that’s great for self-catering.

If that wasn’t enough already for a seriously unique stay, the lighthouse provides easy access to the nearby beach below – where you can take part in crabbing, swimming or sunbathing on the sandy beach. Dalby Forest and the North York Moors are also conveniently within easy reach, with the historic city of York just a short drive away.
