    “The property is in a great location and had most things we needed for a week away.”

    However, on arrival to the cottage on the Saturday, it was cold inside as the heating had not been turned on until that morning. With there being a caretaker, it would’ve been nice for them to have gone in the night before to ensure both the heating and the hot water were switched on. We luckily found where to turn the hot water on ourselves throughout our stay but this shouldn’t have been our responsibility.

    However, on arrival to the cottage on the Saturday, it was cold inside as the heating had not been turned on until that morning. With there being a caretaker, it would’ve been nice for them to have gone in the night before to ensure both the heating and the hot water were switched on. We luckily found where to turn the hot water on ourselves throughout our stay but this shouldn’t have been our responsibility. There was also a note on the side to say the shower was out of order when we first arrived and needed a part. At this point, we were unsure when the note meant it was going to be fixed. Later, the caretaker came over to tell us it should be sorted the next day (being Sunday) and that we could have a bath instead. This would’ve been fine, if there was actually enough hot water to fill the bath! The shower didn’t eventually get fixed until the Tuesday. Throughout our stay, we came across other minor things such as one of the upstairs bedroom blinds not working (so we had to put a magazine up the window to stop the light coming in) and the fridge door came off in our hands when opening it. The chairs aren’t particularly comfortable and the fire doesn’t give out an awful lot of heat. It is a cute and quaint little cottage that could be so much better with a little TLC.

The property

A charming stone end-terrace cottage, tucked away in a quiet corner in the heart of the historic fishing village of Staithes, North Yorkshire.

Retaining much charm and character, this charming cottage is ideal for those wishing to explore the dramatic heritage coastline and the stunning scenery of the North York Moors National Park.

With a homely open plan living area, this delightful cottage has beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and an inviting multi-fuel stove, perfect for cosy nights in and relaxing by, after busy days enjoying this beautiful area.

Steep, winding cottage stairs lead up to the two bedrooms, a double on the first floor and another double on the second floor which is set into the eaves.

This quaint and atmospheric smugglers’ village is packed with nostalgia and charm, with a couple of local inns, quaint tea rooms and a couple of shops.

Wander around the cobbled narrow streets and alleyways and down to the small, sandy beach and coble landing.

With its rock pools and coves, it is the ideal place for crabbing, fishing or simply building sandcastles on the beach.

The Heritage Museum and art gallery in the centre, are well worth an afternoon's visit.

Walkers will delight in an exhilarating clifftop walk on the Cleveland Way, with breathtaking views along the Yorkshire coastline, a superb way to explore this Dinosaur Coast.

About the location

STAITHES

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.

Note: Max 4 people.
