    “What a treasure”
    If you want peace and quiet, this cottage is for you. Although it faces onto a road, the traffic wasn't too much of a disturbance (though when driving out of the driveway onto said road, you have to be careful as some vehicles can come over the brow of a blind summit quite fast). It is very well appointed with everything you'd need and conveniently located for doing the touristy stuff.

    If you want peace and quiet, this cottage is for you. Although it faces onto a road, the traffic wasn't too much of a disturbance (though when driving out of the driveway onto said road, you have to be careful as some vehicles can come over the brow of a blind summit quite fast). It is very well appointed with everything you'd need and conveniently located for doing the touristy stuff. It's also a good base for some of the local walks (our favourite has to be the walk down to Heyburn Cove - what a gem). We also liked the short walk (15 mins or so) along the 'Cinder Track' to the Heyburn Wyke Inn. The owner Cathy was lovely and couldn't do enough for us (albeit from a distance as she doesn't live locally). There is no phone signal at the property though a walk up the road towards Ravenscar will get a signal (should you need it). Our main gripe was that the wifi advertised was not fit for purpose - we didn't get a signal for the 2 weeks we were there, efforts were made to get it sorted but unsuccessfully - as we like to research venues, admission prices and opening times etc, this proved quite an inconvenience. Still, this is a lovely place to visit and we would definitely like to return - I just hope the wifi is sorted by then.

The property

This detached, stone former coach house, lies on the edge of the small scattered village of Staintondale, between Scarborough and Whitby.

Set within the North York Moors National Park, it is an ideal base for families or groups of friends to explore both the nearby dramatic coastline and the stunning surrounding scenery.

Inside, there is a welcoming sitting room, with a cosy crackling open fire and character beams.

The separate dining room has a stone flagged floor and large glass patio doors, while the well-equipped country style kitchen is perfect for preparing tasty family meals.

With a ground floor single bedroom and bathroom, and an en-suite off the twin room, this comfortable property caters for all needs.

Outside, there is a small rear patio, ideal for guests to sit and relax with a morning coffee, before heading off for the day.

From the door, there are excellent walking and cycling opportunities, with the 23 mile Cinder Track just down the road and the clifftop Cleveland Way Trail just a little further.

The nearby traditional coastal resort of Scarborough is a delight, where the family can enjoy the classic seaside fun of building sandcastles, paddling in the sea, donkey rides and tackling candy floss, as well as trying your hand at surfing.

Stroll along the promenade, climb up to the castle ruins, or wander around the pretty gardens, including Peasholm Park.

The fresh sea air will whet your appetite and there is plenty of choice, with cafes, bistros and good restaurants to tempt you, along with renowned fish and chips.

With the spectacular scenery of the North York Moors to explore, plus Whitby and quaint coastal villages such as Robin Hood's Bay to visit, your first visit to this charming cottage won't be your last.

About the location

STAINTONDALE

Staintondale is a delightful scattered village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, close to the coast. Midway between the fishing town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, and the Spa town of Scarborough, with its theatres and entertainment, it is a haven of peace offering the best of both worlds. From Staintondale itself, a network of footpaths and bridleways can be enjoyed. A superb base from which to explore the region.
