Guest Reviews


    • “Fabulous 5 star cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Cannot believe this fabulous cottage has never had a mention on trip advisor before, it is a credit to its owners, who have obviously spared no expense and lovingly brought this cottage up to a very high standard, this is our 7th visit to staithes and we have stayed in several cottages in the few years we have been visiting, either as a couple or with extended family. This occasion we travelled with family, four couples and the dog. The cottage is spacious, warm, clean, comfy, very homely, extremely well equipped and sooooooo beautiful. We have had champagne breakfasts sat around the large dining table, had ladies verses men pool tournaments on the fab pool table in the basement. We have laughed until we,ve cried and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this cottages warmth. So much so we will be booking again for next year without trawling the pages of accomodation on offer in this area. the owner of this cottage deserves 10 out of 10 for customer satisfaction, because it's a ten from Len”

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.
