Default Spooky Whitby...and Chihuahuas!

Probably a long shot. But having booked a break in the Lake District, I now fancy a night or two in Whitby

http://www.whitby.co.uk/

Has anyone stayed in the area with their dogs, pet friendly hotel or guest house?
I love Whitby, it's so atmospheric and spooky...brilliant.

Why does Whitby sound so familiar?

That looks like a lovely place to visit, hubby has family in England, so I've been slowly adding places to a list that I want to visit once we ever get a chance to go visit them. I was reading about the inspiration for Dracula and decided to add Whitby to my list His family usually comes here, but we both really want to visit there. I wish I could help you with places to stay but sadly I wouldn't know where to begin to look.

As lilbabyvenus has said, it's well known because it is where Count Dracula is said to have landed when he arrived in the UK!!! In the book of course!
Link below has info and some lovely images of the place.

Whitby is popular around Samhain (Halloween) with Goths and those of us who are interested in the supernatural etc
But it's a lovely place and the walk up the steps to the Abbey is worth it for the views.

Lot's of quaint shops, places to eat and the fish and chips are fabulous.

All going well and we visit, I'll take lot's of pics
