Welcome to Lavinia House in Whitby...

Our Bed and breakfast in Whitby is an ideal base for discovering the coast, the North Yorkshire Moors, and the narrow streets of this delightful historic town. There is something for everyone and we hope your stay with us will be a pleasant one

Lavinia house was built in the 1850's, and although retaining its character and features of the original dwelling it offers the comfort and standards expected in a well modernised guest house.

The house is situated at the top of the Khyber pass and enjoys views of the sea, is close to all local amenities and offers friendly, relaxed hospitality to all guests.

Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside.

From the old town of Whitby, 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St. Mary, whose churchyard on Whitby's East Cliff gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write his world famous book, Dracula


Whitby is situated on the Yorkshire Coast. To the south lies the coastal villages and resorts of Ravenscar, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. All these are well within a short drive from Whitby.

Parking in Whitby is no longer free, all though our guest can park for free in the permit only parking zone (out front and down the Khyber pass) and the two hour disc parking zone, you will need a permit to display on your dash board which you can get from us. There may be times in the summer were you may have to park in a pay and display car park of which there are several near by.
