Staycation holiday in Whitby! Dracula land!!

My Mum and Dad both turn 60 this year and as a treat, we booked them a stay at La Rosa hotel in Whitby. The Mr took me last year for my 30th and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it!
All the rooms have themes, for instance, Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan and Dracula. We stayed in the Stoker room, obviously a Dracula theme here. Bram Stoker actually wrote the book in Whitby and was inspired by the very same view our room looked out on- the Abbey!

Love the keys around the window frame here!
The view from our room.
Bram himself!
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel- the staff are amazing and its full of cabinets stuffed with curios and vintage oddments.
