"Clevelyn was a beautiful house, very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated."
It was equipped with everything you could need for weekend or longer stays. 3 great pubs within a short walk, definitely eat at the George and Cod and Lobster. You can catch the bus at the top of the hill into Whitby and surrounding villages which are worth the trip. Staithes is a beautiful seaside village and very friendly. We will definitely be back.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, I was a little concerned when I read a previous customers comments but I needn't be."
The cottage is in a lovely spot in Staithes. There were 5 of us that stayed and there was more than enough room. We loved that the property is over 4 floors. We did have a couple of queries while we were staying in the property and the owner quickly responded and sorted them out. If we stayed at Staithes again we would consider returning to this property
"The cottage itself is very quaint and quirky ."
However it was very dirty . The kitchen cupboard doors were filthy the oven was a disgrace bathrooms the same . I had to spend a hour cleaning before we could relax . And this during Covid times when I would have expected everywhere to be sterile clean on arrival ! Once cleaned we enjoyed are stay very much . Lovely location !
"Lovely cottage in a great location."
Perfect for a family of four.
"Having missed out on Staithes last year and our normal bolt hole no longer available, we chose Clevelyn."
we were not disappointed. An excellent house with all the facilities. 6 of us were accommodated easily and all being well we'll be back next year.
One request. There are plenty of signs saying Mind Your Head on the way down to and up from the kitchen, my bald scalp says I didn't on a number of occasions. Please could you put a bit of padding on the offending bits.
Very well equipped, it feels like a home rather than a holiday let. Loved it!
"Wonderful cottage, great location, beautifully decorated."
We had a fabulous holiday at Staithes, would definitely stay at Clevelyn again.
"We have been well overdue our holiday this year having both been working from home since the onset of the pandemic."
We have holidayed in Staithes before and were really looking forward to our visit this year. Clevelyn didnt disappoint. First and foremost from the second we walked through the door we knew the place was clean, it smelt it! The kitchen was spotless with freshly pressed tea towels and a new dish sponge. ( I had brought all of my own things in case I needed to use them but there really was no need). The bedrooms and bathroom were all beautiful made up and the lounge was just so comfortable - we relaxed immediately. The weather was poor but who cares about that, we still went on cliff top walks and adventures and we still managed to have amazing food in the Cod and Lobster and pints in the Royal George. I love the little butcher shop and stuffed my face with chocolates from the deli. A proper holiday and just what we needed. We will be back !
"A residents parking permit would be great as to pay for your seven day ticket at £70 you need to go online."
The signal is not always great and if you couldn't get a signal at time of arrival you may struggle as the only other option would be to pay with change. The cost would be added to the rentals weekly cost.
The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed. It really is a lovely location (if a little hard on the legs) and we would def recommend to friends and family and return again.
"Lovely premises and very comfortable little things like decorations welcome pack ..."
Lovely premises and very comfortable little things like decorations welcome pack fishing net and games helped us have a special week thank - you
"It was a wonderful holiday cottage."
Was surprised it was over four floors with kitchen in basement! Cute fisherman's cottage in perfect location in Staithes.
"The cottage is beautiful and roomy ."
Everything you need inside .
"The location was brilliant."
2 minutes to get to local pub and grandsons loved crabbing. The whole family loved the quaintness of the cottage. Grandsons particularly liked the lighthouse bedside lamp in their room. Small touches.
"Lovely cottage in the beautiful Staiths."
The cottage came equipped with everything we needed. Had a great holiday thank you so much.
"Well What can I say this cottage is just wonderful , this is the 3rd time we been and we took friends with us this time who also have now fallen in love with the cottage ."
It has everything you need . It just feels like you at home , I could happily live there .we will be back soon
"A beautifully furnished cottage with everything you need in a great location."
It’s our favourite cottage by far in the 4 years we have been going to staithes
"A lovely quirky cottage in a beautiful village, the cottage was furnished really ..."
A lovely quirky cottage in a beautiful village, the cottage was furnished really nicely and the bed extremely warm and comfortable
The owners have thought of everything! Great location of the property, really clean, all amenities you will need!
Thinking of returning for a weekend in January!
Would highly recommend.
"Slightly disappointed in Clevelyn, Staithes."
Lovely village, however I wasn’t fully aware of the extra cost of the daily parking (£5 per day) which added to the cost of the holiday. I feel this should be made aware of in the cottage info.
Whilst the cottage had been refurbished in places, new furniture/ kitchen etc, it was also quite grubby in other areas. The windows were very dirty so too areas in the kitchen cupboards/drawers. The toilet in the main bathroom had a tendency to block and the hot water in the evenings ran out.
Also felt the bed linen in the double bedroom on the top floor was of a poor quality.
All in all , frustratingly the property let itself down which is a shame.
"Lovely cottage, great value for money."
Lived the little extras
"We had an absolutely amazing weekend away ."
The cottage is just perfect. It has all the home comforts you need it’s like a home away from home . It’s ideally situated a short walk from the car park and a sort walk to the coffee shop,pubs and shops . We went for a beautiful walk , had a trip to Whitby and a couple of drinks in the pubs We will definitely be back .
"Fabulous cottage in a fabulous location."
Originally from the area I wanted a base to show my partner and children the sights. We have four boys ranging from 14 to 13 weeks and the cottage was ideal. The boys loved exploring the four floors and having their own rooms on the top floor.
The facilities were great and catered for our every need. The cottage was very tastefully decorated with lovely little touches.
The only ‘issues’ that some people need to consider is that there is no parking at the property and the stairs are quite steep. Both of these are highlighted in the Cottages’s description and weren’t a problem for us. We sourced local free parking and actually enjoyed the stroll to and from the cars each day.
Staithes itself is beautiful. The kids loved playing in the harbour and the river behind the cottage.
There is a butchers and sweet shop minutes walk from the cottage and a Co-op and fish and chip shop within walking distance.
Out of Staithes we visited Saltburn, Runswick Bay, Falling Foss , Sandsend and Whitby and all were an easy drive away.
"Great house and location."
More picture of the front and back and the hill the house is on would have been good to have seen
"Location of the cottage is excellent, literally a 2 mins walk to the beach."
A great base for exploring the area.
"Love, love, love Clevelyn and the charming village of Staithes."
Just what we needed for a family break.
"Clevelyn is a lovely cosy cottage, with lots of lovely features and home comforts."
A group of us went for a 50th birthday, a great space to cook and eat in the kitchen, lovely log burner, comfortable bedrooms and a great location. Lots of great walks from the door and a lovely local pub or two! highly recommended.
"A bit dusty in this cottage
A bit dusty in this cottage
Windows needed cleaning
A bin was needed in the en suite
A dishcloth wasn’t left in the kitchen
"Lovely well appointed cottage in ideal location."
Cleaner was still there after 3pm and I think rushed a bit. The fire place didn't look like it had been cleared in weeks as we had to clear out a lot of compressed ash. No logs or lighters provided which would have been a nice welcome.
Ensuite shower room and separate bathroom were really good although the amount of hot water in the cylinder only allowed a small volume of water in the bath before it cooled off.
Overall very good and would definitely recommend to friends and family.
"Really lovely cottage with all you could possibly need and more in a really beautiful part of the world."
We stayed over Christmas and owners supplied a Christmas tree and decorations which was a really nice touch. We all had a wonderful holiday (including Moomin the dog) will definatley return
"Fantastic area for a winter break."
"Fabulous weekend, this is our 7th visit to Staithes and Clevelyn has been the best accommodation by far."
We will be back!!
