We’re Changing ‘The Linen’.

The White Linen Guest House is currently closed whilst we make a few changes and give it a lick of paint.

We’re grateful for all the help we’ve received from Richard and Heidi and Ali and Pete who have run The White Linen Guest House so successfully for many years.  We look forward to continuing to offer a warm welcome at the White Linen Guest House in Whitby. We’re aiming to re-open in early 2018.  Watch this space.

Malcolm & Bernie – new owners.
