Country Kids – Whitby

Last week we were in Yorkshire, so we thought it only right to go and inspect the scenery and of course the fish and chips! We were half an hour from Whitby, so we all took a drive and had a lovely walk across the beach, the pier, the town and the 199 steps up to the old abbey. It was full of things to look at and explore, right up our street.


Whitby holds a lot of secrets, from the outsiders point of view anyway. I had no idea from when we walked in on the beach that there was so much to see and explore – it looks very hidden from across the harbour. You can see up the hill behind the houses and you can see the abbey ruins on the horizon, but unless you know about what is in between you are in for a pleasant surprise. I would love to go back and spend more time in the little boutiques and exploring the abbey.


I am still shocked Isla walked up the 199 steps – I didn’t make her, she wanted to walk and when I picked her up she elongated herself out and went floppy as if to say “Let me go!”, so I let her walk and she did it. She was so chuffed with herself too. Needless to say they both slept well that night. So did I!

Daddy didn’t like the pier as it walks right out into sea, but the water wasn’t underneath us directly just to the sides of us – which was a little better for him. It was quite funny though, Noah and Isla loved it. Noah was laughing at Daddy for scared, bless him. They must take after me with their fear factors as heights and things like that do not phase me.


It was beautiful scenery and a lovely fresh, clear day, so it was good all round for a January day. Everyone was impressed and we loved our fish and chips – so did the seagulls!

    I love the angle you have chosen for all your photos, they are so original, full of colour and tell of a happy walk. Whitby looks a lovely town. Good to see the past few weeks weren’t all storms and gales around the country too! Thanks for linking up and thank you for my “hot status” on your blog here, really appreciate this!

    I love Whitby, we were there last week! We seem to end up going whenever the weather’s good, it’s the holidays and we fancy a bit of sea air! 🙂
    Didn’t do the 199 steps this time though as the weather was miserable, but have done them in the past.
    It was all about fish and chips in The Magpie when we last went! 🙂

      We were there last week too! Thursday in fact 🙂 haha.

      It is really nice, I was amazed how deceiving the place is from first glance. We had our chips on the pier. It was yummy.
