    “Nice little cottage close to Saltburn-by-the-sea and Staithes.”

    Whitby is also not too far away to visit by car. We had a night in Saltburn and used the taxi service J&P taxis. Loftus had couple of pubs, no where really to eat in the location though. Great for just a few nights stay. ...

    Whitby is also not too far away to visit by car. We had a night in Saltburn and used the taxi service J&P taxis. Loftus had couple of pubs, no where really to eat in the location though. Great for just a few nights stay. One downside to the cottage, that I would suggest needs looking at are the showers. You cannot use both showers at the same time because they both cut out. This kind of defeats the object of having a main bathroom and an en-suite, especially when 6 people are trying to get ready. The bedding in the bedroom with the en-suite needs changing. The quilt is very thin and doesn’t fit the double quilt, it feels like a single quilt in a double cover. The radiator in this room also doesn’t work so a thicker quilt in the winter is essential because it’s a very cold room. Hand soap and a full washing up liquid in the property would be a nice touch, especially for just a few nights stay. The current frying pan is not big enough to make a full meal for 6 people. There aren’t enough sharp knives if you would like to make a full meal. The property could also do with more drinking glasses. We had to buy plastic cups to drink out of. When spending nearly £800 for a 3 night NYE trip I would expect better facilities in the property. Overall a great stay but could be improved with a few adjustments.

The property

Resting within striking distance of the Yorkshire coast and the majestic North York Moors, is the idyllic Old Stables Cottage.

This heart-warming retreat is perfect for a family seeking a traditional getaway to an area steeped in natural beauty and a vast array of attraction and activities to suit a group of all ages and tastes.

Be greeted by the character features of the property with its exposed beams and the quaint inglenook fireplace which houses a warming woodburning stove.

Rustle up an evening meal within the amply-equipped kitchen before sinking into the plush seating arrangement which rests in front of the TV and the woodburning stove, gently filling the room with warmth during the winter months.

The characterful charm continues within the bedrooms, which comprises of a double bedroom with its own en-suite and two additional double bedrooms to choose from.

A stone’s throw away from the cottage is a superb selection of pubs and restaurants which are certain to satisfy all tastes, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

Only a few minutes drive is the beautiful sandy beach at Skinningrove, which is dog-friendly throughout the year.

Also in Skinningrove is the Mining Museum and the KasKane cafe.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, venture to the coastal towns of Runswick Bay and Staithes with further amenities to explore, or venture to the sandy beach of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, offering opportunities for a range of watersports and to ride on the famous cliff tramway.

Further afield, is the historical town of Whitby with its long stretch of sand, famous fish and chips, and the 199 steps up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey.

About the location

LOFTUS

Saltburn-by-the-Sea 4 miles; Hinderwell 6 miles; Whitby 14 miles.

The village of Loftus lies 14 miles north of Whitby on the east coast of Yorkshire. Originally an old alum mining village, it comprises terraced houses, old stone cottages and a few grand stone dwellings. The long and lively main street hosts a variety of shops, eateries, pubs, banks and an impressive town hall. Lying behind the main street is a leisure centre with an excellent swimming pool. Loftus is well placed for discovering the small coastal villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes, the latter being a popular choice for artists. Four miles to the north is the elegant spa town of Saltburn with its golf club and long pier stretching over the wide sands. The stunning North Yorkshire Moors countryside is on the doorstep and the Jurassic fossil coast lies to the south.
