Dalehouse Farm Holiday Cottages
Staithes 0.5 miles. These two, pretty, stone semi-detached cottages, are quietly tucked away in the small hamlet of Dalehouse, just a few minutes’ walk from the charming fishing village of Staithes. Set on the owners’ farm which has suckler cows and sheep, and where they breed Cleveland Bay horses, the cottages overlook fields and countryside and are in the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing holiday, with an abundance of walking tracks and cycling trails in the area. Originally the milking parlour, they have been converted to a good standard and provide comfortable accommodation with a traditional feel running through them. Both cottages have L-shaped open plan living areas, with leather sofas, electric stoves and family dining areas. The larger cottage offers the flexibility of a ground floor bedroom and wet room, enabling the less mobile to stay, while both have family bathrooms and first floor bedrooms with views of the lambs skipping around in the springtime. With both cottages having off road parking, guests can leave their cars safely behind and walk into historic Staithes, with its narrow cobbled streets and cottages that tumble down the bank towards the picturesque harbour, with a feeling of stepping back in time. Wander around the quaint shops, partake in tea and cakes, or enjoy fine fish and chips in one of the local inns. The Captain Cook's Museum is well worth a visit, or blow the cobwebs away with a bracing cliff top walk along the Cleveland Way long distance trail, that follows the coastline for miles. This special corner of North Yorkshire offers some superb countryside, with the North York Moors on your doorstep and delightful inland and coastal villages to explore, including Runswick Bay, Saltburn and Danby, with attractions such as the Danby Moors Exhibition Centre, the steam railway at Grosmont and the interesting mining museum at Skinningrove. Two well-placed cottages for wonderful family holidays.
Mulgrave Cottage is the larger property of the two and has the advantage of a ground floor double bedroom and a wet room, which is suitable for those with limited mobility, having a pull down shower seat, grab rails and a portable shower chair if needed.
In the open plan living area there are comfortable leather sofas set around an electric stove, a cosy addition for cooler evenings.
There is also a well-equipped kitchen with dining area.
Stairs lead up to two pleasant bedrooms and the family bathroom.
Outside, the rear enclosed patio garden is safe for children to play and offers off road parking, not often found in the Staithes area.
A short stroll brings you to centre of this charming fishing village, whilst the surrounding countryside is a walker’s haven.

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, with 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. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff 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.
