The Property

A cosy, terraced fisherman's cottage, quietly tucked away in the charming village of Staithes. Set over one floor, this Staithes cottage is an ideal retreat for couples wanting to get away from it all. This cottage in Staithes offers an open plan living area with exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings and a warming woodburning stove, which is lovely to snuggle around on cooler evenings! With a pretty double bedroom and spacious shower room, this Staithes cottage provides traditional, comfortable accommodation. Outside this Staithes cottage is a small front patio with bench where you can sit with a morning cup of coffee, whilst soaking up the atmosphere in this quaint, historic village. A two minute walk brings you to local inns, tea rooms and village shops, whilst the harbour and beach are just a stone's throw away. Wander around the narrow, cobbled streets and alleyways, or enjoy an invigorating walk along the cliffs to nearby Runswick Bay. A little further up the coast you will find the old spa town of Saltburn, with its elegant architecture and lovely sandy beach, whilst the vibrant port of Whitby offers excellent restaurants, independent shops and ancient abbey.

About the location


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.
