Whitby is famous for many things. From the historic Abbey, to the seafaring legacy of Captain James Cook, to being inspiration for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ to being regularly voted the UK’s top seaside destination. Whitby has a lot going for it!
Whitby is also home to Nature’s Laboratory, the parent company of Herbal Apothecary. Established in the town over 20 years ago by CEO, James Fearnley, Nature’s Laboratory is a thriving manufacturing business.
We wanted to share some of the highlights of living and working in this beautiful part of the country. We produced the above video, using wonderful aerial footage taken by a local aerial photography company, Njord Sky Drones.
Surrounded by such beatiful scenery, in such a popular part of the country, we’re constantly reminded what a privilege it is to live in Whitby and the local area. Some of our team live in Whitby itself, while others live in local villages including Goathland and Danby.
The North York Moors National Park surrounds Whitby on three sides – with the fourth side being exposed to the North Sea. Whitby truly is surrounded by some of the most amazing coastal scenery, home to wonderful wildlife including dolphins, whales and many kinds of sea birds.
Even the industrial estate which is home to our factory where we produce our herbal tinctures, bee medicines and natural skincare products is surrounded by green fields, trees and farmland.
We’re biased, of course, but we think Whitby is the best place to live and work!
