WHERE TO STAY & EAT

Billing it­self as more Step­toe than Sel­fridge’s, Whitby’s La Rosa Ho­tel (01947 606981, www. larosa.co.uk) is a gor­geous, quirky place to stay in what was once Lewis Car­roll’s York­shire home. Each room has an in­di­vid­ual theme like the gothic Stoker and the cow­girl Saloon, and break­fast is de­liv­ered to your door in a ham­per. Dou­bles from £86. Down­stairs is Café La Rosa – aka the Mad­hat­ter’s Tea­room – for af­ter­noon tea (Fri-Sun only in win­ter), or for a fish and chip sup­per head down the hill to the fa­mous Magpie Café (01947 602058, www.mag­piecafe.co.uk).
