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.

The location - short sharp stroll into Staithes, good cliff paths and inland walks. You can see the sun rise out of rear windows and see it set out of the front windows.
Mr McDowall, Blackburn, March 2013
A lovely cosy light filled cottage. The owners had taken a lot of care to ensure a warm welcome. Only a very short walk into the village and harbour but definitely worth it for the peace and quiet, the garden, the views and the easy parking.
