Why stay here ...

Poverty Cottage CL site is set within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with magnificent views of the Yorkshire coast, a peaceful 3 van site with the charms of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay nearby. Close to the Cleveland Way coastal path and the disused railway line that ran from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay making it perfect for walkers.

2 miles from Whitby you can wake up to the amazing view of Whitby Abbey.

Explore the charms of Whitby or just a short drive away to the picturesque Robin Hood's Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes with beautiful beaches.

Heading out of Whitby the Esk Valley full of woodlands, pretty waterfalls and pleasant dales that sweep up to the open moors. The village of Goathland, made famous by the Heartbeat series, is also a short drive away through the stunning landscape and nearby at Grosmont, a ride can be enjoyed on the nostalgic steam train line to Pickering, one of the most scenic preserved lines in Britain.

Close by the villages of Hawsker and Stainsacre both have pubs serving excellent food.

If only I could give it 6 stars

Poverty Cottage
We stayed here very recently for 2 nights. We had wanted to stay longer but it was full. Not surprising really, as the place is a gem. Absolutely spotless, only 3 pitches, with great views of the countryside and Abbey. Close enough to walk into Whitby, but far enough away to be peaceful. Coastal path (you can walk/cycle to Robin Hood's bay) is really close by. The owners are brilliant, friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back

Great Little CL

Poverty Cottage
We spent four nights here in May 2021. Friendly and helpful welcome from Jo on our arrival.The site is immaculate and very well maintained with very organised services even the facility to directly empty grey water from our motorhome - not the norm on CLs. Also high standards achieved to make it very Covid secure. Fantastics views of Whitby and the Abbey which, during our stay, was made even more amazing by a firework display put on by the BBC who were recording a set by Coldplay for Radio 1's Big Weekend. Access to great footpaths leading out to the Coastal Path. Lots of wildlife in and around the site including Yellowhammers, White Throats and Skylarks and obviously the normal seabirds once you get to the Coastal Path. Can highly recommend this site. Great for dogs and footpath accessible directly from the site. Easy driving access to Whitby and of course very tasty fish and chips! Thanks to Jo and Stu for a memorable few days. Hope to be back soon. Early booking recommended!!!!

A Little Gem!

Poverty Cottage
This is a lovely site! Easy walking into Whitby and easy access to a number of walks and cycle paths. The site is clean and tidy; very well kept. Jo and Stu are wonderful hosts; friendly and helpful, definitely a warm welcome. Lovely views towards Whitby Abbey; we experienced fantastic sunsets. Stayed for 5 nights.

Our 2nd visit

Poverty Cottage
We visited this great site again last week for 3 nights. Jo and Stu are really friendly and helpful and if you are lucky enough to get a pitch you won't be disappointed. Ideally situated for Whitby and an excellent starting point if you fancy the return Cleveland way walk to Robin Hood's Bay. Also it's a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Moors.
