Whitby 10 miles.
The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides and there is a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliffside to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.

Lovely cottage, friendly owner, spotlessly clean, would happily re-book.

This was the cutest little cottage! The pictures and description were accurate. The owner of the property was very helpful. The beds and sofa were very comfortable and the bathtub was a great way to relax. The people in the town were very friendly and helpful. Convenient access to the Cleveland Way footpath and there are wonderful beaches in the area.
