A WHITBY holiday apartment is celebrating after winning a VisitBritain Gold Award for the second year running.
Sea Glimpse holiday apartment has been located on Abbey Terrace since 2008 and owner Darren Marsh said he chose to set up his business in Whitby after falling in love with the town as a teenager.
“I’m a real advocate of Whitby,” he said. “I love Whitby as a town, I think it’s the people, the laid back lifestyle.
“I came to Whitby after I’d just passed my driving test. I’m from Pontefract and I should have been going to Middlesbrough to meet my mate but I had never seen anything like Whitby. I drove to the top of the hill and I thought it was a castle. I immediately fell in love with the place.”
VisitBritain Gold Awards are given annually to tourism and accommodation businesses that meet a strict marking criteria.
