    “The property had an overwhelming smell of damp, the windows were filthy and many of them wouldn't open meaning the ventilation was poor.”


    We love Staithes and go every year for a week. We have booked a different cottage for next year - whilst looking we noticed the price for the same week in Kippers Corner next year had gone up by several hundred pounds - almost to the same price we are paying next year for a larger and much more well maintained holiday cottage just across the road! The windows need sorting, the damp needs sorting, the beds need sorting (slats were missing and some of the sheets need replacing as the double on the top floor was thin, old and bobbly ) The good things were the location, the decor, the kitchen equipment was fine, the shower was good (altho the door kept coming off)

Both double rooms have additional day beds for flexibility of sleeping arrangements, while one has a modern en-suite shower room.

The luxurious family bathroom has a beautifully tiled floor and offers a roll-top slipper bath, perfect for a deep soak at the end of the day.

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.
