    “We loved the location and sea view.”
    We loved the location and sea view. The cottage is idyllic and well equipped. We really liked the master bedroom which was sunny, bright and really pretty to relax in.

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

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.
