  • "Thanks for a lovely week."

    The cottage is lovely and quaint, but is very small and may not suit four adults. There isn't much room to store food in the kitchen, so don't do a big shop! There was no corkscrew, but a quick visit to the Royal George, who were happy to help, sorted that problem! We often had to move people off the bench when we wanted to use it, and it was quite intrusive- it sounded like they were with us in the front room, so privacy could be an issue. That's not down to the cottage or the owners though, and a little assertiveness sorted it. Some great rock pooling and fossil hunting to be had on the beach. We used the Cow Bar free car park (which was a bonus) as the Bank Top one was very full, and you need the RinGo app or cash to use it.

  • "As expected, this is a small cottage, and a little bit of a squash for the four of us, but it was nice and cosy in the evening, and easy to keep warm."

    The open fire was lovely, and the wifi worked really well. The house itself is in the perfect position, with lots of lovely amenities too.

    Small but everything we needed. Fantastic location in such a beautiful place. Some thoughtful touches throughout. The host was efficient and helpful and responded straight away. We would definitely go again.

    The layout of the cottage with downstairs toilet was not advertised parking was to far away and expensive we are elderly and found the whole experience too exhausting and physically too much for us

    We are naturally disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay at Broomhill View and whilst we would always welcome the opportunity to improve where we can, the comments in your feedback are inaccurate. The details on Sykes website are clear and mention twice the fact that the bathroom is on the ground floor. Likewise the parking arrangements for the property are clearly mentioned. It's unfortunate that these booking oversights so negatively impacted your stay in the beautiful village of Staithes. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage in ideal position."

    A hairdryer would have been useful. It would also have helped if the cost of car parking was noted in listing. Sadly on stripping bed the mattress was found to be quite stained. Mattress and pillows could do with replacing.

  • "The cottage is for four people but there is no way four people would be comfortable in the downstairs of the property, much to cramped, plus the no parking situation which added on £70 to our holiday."

    ? The cottage provided everything we need but no starter pack for the open fire . Very clean throughout.

  • "We had a lovely stay at this cottage."

    On arrival it was spotlessly clean, had all the facilities needed and was comfortable. The beds were soooo comfy and warm. Only two minutes from the beach which is perfect and had a sea view from the main bedroom. My only negative comment would be that due to the storage heaters we were chilly in the evening on Saturday. The weather is unseasonably cool at the moment, and there were small radiators that could’ve been used but I didn’t find the downstairs one until the next day when I hoovered before we left. My mistake, and it’s not a criticism of the Cottage, just a comment. We would definitely look to return to this pretty and quaint cottage.

  • "Fab walking area and delightful village."

    Lovely cottage. Your blurb says minimal mobile signal. NO mobile signal (either with 02 or EE at cottage!!) Perhaps others should be aware - although this didn’t trouble us unduly!! Also the first flight of stairs has a low head height at one step. There is a plaque which says ‘mind your head’ but husband (6 ft) only took note after hitting his head once or twice!! Due to Covid-19 restrictions would advise incoming guests to book nearby pubs for evening meals (if their idea is not to cook) as soon as they have booked cottage as Cod and Lobster (excellent pub on seafront) already booked, for example, until end November now! They do accept walk ins but it’s hit and miss if there’s an available table inside or out.

  • "Property has storage heaters."

    We were there at the end of March. Thankfully it was fairly mild. Despite this the property was like a freezer. Not good

    Thank you for your feedback. Storage heaters are simple and effective. If used correctly they provide more than adequate heating for the property. There is also an open fire and a portable oil filled radiator that guests can use if they wish to during colder periods. We visited ourselves at the beginning of March, when it was cold, and after your stay at the beginning of April and on both occasions the property was sufficiently warm. We encourage guests who are not familiar with storage heaters to take the time to read the instructions Property Owner

  • "One small criticism is that it was not made clear in the cottage details that the bench outside the front of Broomhill View, does not actually belong to the cottage."

    There is no back garden or courtyard so I was looking forward to sitting on the bench in the evenings, but it was often occupied by locals or other visitors.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your holiday. The bench outside Broomhill View does actually belong to the cottage, however due to our enviable location on the High Street (particularly as it enjoys a sunny position) people passing by often sit on the bench as they do on many of the other benches up and down the street. All that is required is a polite & friendly excuse me and the occupants will move along, we speak from many personal experiences during our own & family visits. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was well located on the main high street of the village, close to gift shops, butcher's and pubs, just a minutes' walk to the sea front."

    It was cosy and warm ( as long as you use the storage heaters properly and follow user instructions). Beds were extremely comfortable. Only real drawback was having to come down 2 flights of stairs, through the lounge and kitchen to the bathroom to use the loo during the night.

    We just wanted do to get away from it all without our sons (x6) Cottage was beautiful- attention to detail second to none. We only had to speak to ‘Sykes’ and the owner once and they couldn’t hAve been helpful If we had to pick and give one thing that could be improved I would say be aware of the weather in staithes!!! It was bitterly cold, we come from ‘down safffffff’ And it was a shockIng to the system the cottages are original so take some warming up - make sure your take logs etc for fire!!

The property

An attractive, Grade ll listed, former fisherman's cottage, situated on the cobble high street in the heart of the picturesque, historic village of Staithes.

Dating back to the 1700s, the cottage is ideal for those wishing to explore the dramatic heritage coastline and the stunning scenery of the North York Moors National Park.

Carefully renovated, great care has been taken to retain and enhance the original features, whilst incorporating modern comforts in this traditional seaside home.

The snug and cosy sitting room oozes charm and character, with stripped wooden floors, beamed ceiling and a warming open fire set in a period cast iron surround, perfect for cooler evenings, whilst the ample selection of books, games and DVDs keep everyone entertained on a rainy day.

There is a well-equipped, modern kitchen with a breakfast bar, with the family bathroom leading off.

Stairs lead up to the two pretty bedrooms, with the double having dual-aspect windows, with views over the rooftops to the sea.

Outside to the front, is a bench beside the cobbles, where you can easily find yourself in the sunshine, spending many an hour people watching.

This quaint and atmospheric village is packed with nostalgia and charm, with a couple of local inns, quaint tea rooms and a couple of shops.

A short walk brings you to the small sandy cove and coble landing, with rock pooling, crabbing, fishing or simply building sand castles on the beach.

Walkers will delight in an exhilarating clifftop walk on the Cleveland Way, which links Staithes with neighbouring villages, such as Runswick Bay and Port Mulgrave, a superb way to explore this Dinosaur Coast.

Nearby Whitby is a must with its famous Abbey, reached by the 199 steps.

With many independent shops, good restaurants, traditional tea rooms and the best fish and chips in Yorkshire, there is something here for everyone!

With many attractions in the local area, including the steam railway at Grosmont, the Danby Moors Visitors Centre and boating on the River Esk at Ruswarp, this lovely cottage is well placed for a varied and interesting holiday.

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.
