Launceston Villa

Launceston Villa in Whitby is a lovely Edwardian home built at the turn of the last century by one of Whitby’s many sea captains. Now recently tastefully restored to offer modern stylish accommodation, yet retaining many period features, our small bed and breakfast is a perfect base to explore historic Whitby.

With ample private parking to the rear of our home and excellent four star accommodation you can be assured of a relaxing break in our beautiful home. All our rooms have their own private en-suite facilities, modern convenient accessories and comfortable furnishings.

We take breakfast seriously here at Launceston Villa and offer a varied choice and large breakfast to set you up for the day, using local produce and served with the best of Yorkshire hospitality. If a full English is too much, then we have our own healthy options the choice is entirely yours.

Launceston Villa is situated within easy walking distance to the town centre, about 8 to 10 minutes, where the main train and bus stops reside. Yet we are easy to find and access to the Moors and the other coastal towns is straight forward and rewarding.

We aim to make your visit to this wonderful part of the world memorable by extending the warmest of welcomes. Relax and unwind where the pace of life is so much slower and at Launceston Villa experience the personal service you only expect from a small concern.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Whitby.
