    The cottage was good with excellent views and had all the facilities necessary for a great relaxing break. Great walking country. The cottage is located approximately 30 metres up from the bottom of the street on the left hand side (going up) - opposite the Craft Centre. You need to go up some stone steps and through a blue gate. It is not easy to locate if it is dark. I would reverse up the street to drop off luggage as turning is not possible.

    The cottage was good with excellent views and had all the facilities necessary for a great relaxing break. Great walking country. The cottage is located approximately 30 metres up from the bottom of the street on the left hand side (going up) - opposite the Craft Centre. You need to go up some stone steps and through a blue gate. It is not easy to locate if it is dark. I would reverse up the street to drop off luggage as turning is not possible. There is no car parking near the cottage so I would recommend booking into the car park at the top of the hill. (http://www.parkingstaithes.co.uk/). This can be pre-booked on the internet. There is a lane / footpath (The Old Stubble) that is a shortcut from the car park to the cottage.Enjoy!

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.
