    “We had a wonderful time in Staithes with our dogs and the cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed.”

    We were so close to the harbour it was a joy walking the dogs there in the early morning before anyone was up. Staithes is on the tourist must visit list so there are a few extra people during the day but at night it is so peaceful and quiet - you will sleep well. A lovely view of the harbour at sunset with a pint at the Cod & Lobster pub is very nice. If you are elderly or infirm it is quite a steep walk to the car park however you can bring the car down to load or unload so go with a fit ...

Highly recommend this cottage and location for a relaxing break. We will definitely return again in future.

The property

Resting in the heart of seaside village of Staithes, is this delightful, semi-detached property, Salmon Cottage.

Boasting three storeys and a spacious interior considering the central location, the cottage offers a heart-warming base for families looking to explore the dramatic coastline and North York Moors National Pasrk.

Enter into the well-equipped kitchen with large dining area with ample seating for all during mealtimes.

Two steps down is the sitting room, oozing charm and character with two plush settees and a flat screen TV, completed with the alluring multi-fuel stove.

The bedrooms are spread across the upper two floors, with a king-size double resting on the second floor, whilst a triple and double with en-suite shower room can be found on the first floor.

Outside to the rear is a private patio with seating where you can enjoy your morning cuppa whilst planning for the day ahead.

Wander the cobbled streets of Staithes and you can expect to stumble across a range of independent shops and fine eateries, from traditional pubs to quality restaurants, along with numerous, quaint tea rooms if you fancy a light bite.

Spend your afternoons lounging on the sandy beach whilst the children paddle in the shallow waters, or enjoy a stroll along the craggy cliffs where beautiful coastal and inland views can be seen from every angle.

Further attractions in the local area include the fabulous steam railway at Grosmont, the Danby Moors Visitor Centre and boating on the River Esk at Ruswarp, and not forgetting the wonderful attractions in Whitby, just ten miles away!

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.
