  • "Beautiful accommodation, and an ideal place for visiting the many resorts along the coast."

    Loved Sandsend! The relaxed feeling of the stay made up for one seriously bad weather day, knowing that we had such lovely accommodation to return to. Only marked down on comfort as we're used to a super king size bed, and the duvet could have been a little wider.

    Thank you so much! We’re glad you enjoyed your stay :) Property Owner

  • "We had a very good stay at Faran House."

    Apart from the house being comfortable and well equipped with everything we could think of, including beds which were so perfect for us we didn’t want to get up in the mornings, it was ideally positioned for the car parking space round the corner at the owner’s house, the bus stop , the excellent fish and chip shop and the local co-op. It is an easy drive to the coastal villages and towns and the North York Moors. A bus trip to Whitby took 28 minutes and no parking to worry about. Thank you to the owner for the wine, biscuits and milk- very thoughtful. We had to leave a day early sadly but hope to return in the future.

    Spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything you need for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. Great location for exploring the area. The free parking space was great. Have already booked another visit!

  • "Great property, absolutely spotless and beautifully decorated, five minutes to the edge of the pretty village of Staithes."

    The wine and biscuits were a lovely touch. We parked the car around the corner at the owners house (great idea!) and didn't use it all week, the bus stop with it's coastal service is on the doorstep and we used it to visit Whitby, Sandsend and Saltburn. Would definitely use Faran House when we next visit Staithes.

    Spotlessly clean and excellent facilities, comfy beds piping hot water, loved the bath and shower. Even provided beach towels. Owner very helpful and friendly and lovely couple next door. We were blessed with good weather so enjoyed the enclosed garden and the beaches. The book nook would have been a bonus in bad weather. The treats were appreciated by us and the dog. We stayed an extra night which was easy to sort as having such a good time.

    Wine, biscuits dog treats eat. The location is handy for travelling about the coast. The only downside is the hill going into Staithes if you are disabled or short of breath it wouldn’t be for you. There is a pub close by for meals etc and a Co op 2-3 minutes away

  • "What an absolutely fantastic home and location!"

    This home was beautifully decorated and kept uptodate. The house was spotless with modern furnishings and decor. The kitchen was fully equipped (there was even a dishwasher!) Abd the hosts left us some nice treats, thank you. It was very soacious and the children especially loved the garden space and book nook! Thank you for the games and wonderful books, this kept our kids occupied whilst we were in the house. Staithes is an absolute gem of a fishing village and this home was perfectly situated, allowing us to make casual walks down into the harbour/beach/rockpools, I highly recommend it. There is also a coop aroumd the corner. We visited beautiful beaches and villages nearby such as Saltburn, Runswick bay, Goathland and then a trip to Dalby Forest on the way home as it was alog the way. We appreciated the parking permit and free parking around the corner- there was a little difficulty on arrival as there was no space available despite having the permit so we had to walk back and forth a lot frol a nearby street with luggage until someone drove away. Overall I highly recommend staying here and in larticular visiting Staithes. Look forward to visiting again.

  • "We had a comfortable few days stay at Faran House."

    What a lovely freshly decorated/renovated property, it was a real pleasure to stay here. I was worried about the no dogs upstairs policy initially, as our dog is used to roaming the whole house at home, but i was pleased to see a ‘dog stopper’ on the stairs upon arrival to make life easier… even if the dog wasn't a fan! There was an enclosed back garden which is great for children and dogs and the neighbours are really pleasant. Great location for Staithes with only a 10-15 minute walk to the beautiful harbour. A highly recommend fish shop on the door step, a Co-op around the corner for essentials and free off road parking at the owners property also around the corner, this was super handy and very much appreciated! This is a great base for discovering the North Yorks coast, so many beaches only a short drive away in either direction! Highly recommend :)

    The information pack was a little bit lacking eg information about parking permits, recycling, and WiFi info.,also found it strange cooking utensils were in the dining room not the kitchen,these were just minor niggles (suggestions).

The property

Faran House is a lovely, terraced cottage in Staithes, North Yorkshire.

Perfect for a relaxing family holiday in the North York Moors National Park, the cottage has all amenities needed for a great stay, is close to the coast, and is also dog-friendly.

The kitchen is well-equipped and styled with a contemporary finish featuring grey cabinets, wooden worktops, an electric oven and hob, and a washing machine.

After rustling up your favourite home-cooked meal, gather your family in the dining room, a welcoming space with a wooden table that can seat six people.

The sitting room has plenty of character, with a leather suite, a wood-burning stove, a TV, and a bay window that allows plenty of sunlight to come in.

After action-packed days exploring the Moors, head upstairs to find a beautifully appointed bathroom to step into the walk-in shower or roll-top bath.

The first two bedrooms are furnished with elegant double beds and homely decor, complete with fluffy towels and storage space, whilst the third is a snug room furnished with a single bed.

You can start your mornings with a cup of coffee in the enclosed patio garden, a sun trap with outdoor furniture and space for your dogs to rest their paws.

Staithes is a beautiful coastal village that is home to a selection of restaurants and bars, cafes, and takeaways, including The Fox & Hounds pub and Cod & Lobster for sea views; be sure to discover local heritage at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre!

There are plenty of walks nearby, whether that's along the coast or into the Moors, and the village is close to many historic attractions.

In the seaside town of Whitby, you can climb the 199 Steps up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, embark on a coastal cruise, or simply relax on the sands of Whitby Beach with a selection of classic seaside amusements on offer.

A little further lies the picturesque fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, or perhaps you'd prefer cycling or walking through the North Riding Forest Park?

Make Faran House your home-from-home whilst exploring everything North Yorkshire has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

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.
