The property

A mid-terrace cottage, renovated to a high standard and close to the harbour within the village of Staithes.

Boasting two bedrooms, this retreat is ideal for a small family or friends looking to explore all that this seaside location has to offer.

Upon entering you will arrive at a lovely sitting room boasting a feature fireplace with a woodburner to warm those cooler evenings.

The dining area rests opposite, perfect for enjoying a home-cooked meal in comfort, as you enjoy the company of your loved ones.

The well-equipped kitchen is homely and inviting with everything you need to go about your day, and for an added extra, a family bathroom lies to the other side, complete with a bath and a hand-held shower.

The first floor houses a front facing king-size double bedroom, promising a peaceful nights sleep, along with a double which look out over the fields.

On a nice day, you may even catch a glimpse of the sea drifting in the distance.

In your leisure time, why not rest outside in the courtyard, perhaps with a refreshing drink to start your afternoon off well.

Staithes houses an old harbour, surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst rocky coastline.

Altogether a memorable base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and exploring the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.

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.
