This handsome 17 century harbourside house is where the great explorer, James Cook, came to serve his apprenticeship in Whitby in the year 1746. It belonged to Cook’s master, the Quaker ship owner, Captain John Walker. When the young Cook was not at sea, he lodged here in the attic with Walker’s ‘other family’ of apprentices.

What Our Guests Say

Another excellent New Year break. We stay with Eastgate Cottages every year and sometimes twice a year. Always of a very high standard, we have never been disappointed, only delighted. We treat this as our home in the country and wouldn’t go anywhere else. It doesn’t get any better, just book, you will love it.

5 minutes from town centre in a private quiet courtyard. I have stayed in several of the cottages over the last couple of months. Each cottage is finished to a high standard and very comfortable. Kitchens and bathrooms are modern and have every amenity.I would recommend very highly, and would gladly stay again in the future.Helen and her staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

What Our Guests Say

“The cottage was of such a high standard real home from home feel. The cleanliness was spot on. We have visited Eastgate cottages for 16 yrs now and very often see the same people returning. Over that time we have stayed in most of the cottages at Eastgate and never had any cause to complain about anything.”

What Our Guests Say

Perfect. Pickering was chosen as an equidistant base for the coast, York and Harrogate and really could not have been better. Pickering is great with lots of amenities.  We stayed in the Farmhouse and everything was spot on. The place was clean and we had a bit of cake and cheese to welcome us. The place exudes quality from the kitchen utensils, fixtures and fittings through to the bedding and towels. The staff were great and the whole set up was just perfect. Thanks to all.
