    “We stayed for 3 nights in October.”

    On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful village and its proximity to Staithes. The place seemed clean and smelled of bleach, which, considering covid, was a good thing. We opted not to use the downstairs bedroom so it was not made up. We did use the ensuite downstairs as a toilet however. There was only 4 of us, 2 adults and our children, but had there been 6 of us, in my view it would have been overcrowded. I understand that the downstairs bedroom is very much intended for a ...

    On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful village and its proximity to Staithes. The place seemed clean and smelled of bleach, which, considering covid, was a good thing. We opted not to use the downstairs bedroom so it was not made up. We did use the ensuite downstairs as a toilet however. There was only 4 of us, 2 adults and our children, but had there been 6 of us, in my view it would have been overcrowded. I understand that the downstairs bedroom is very much intended for a less able person, but has made the living and kitchen area too small. Kitchen was ok if a little basic but the oven was not clean inside. It needed a thorough scrub. On day of arrival we wanted a shower but there was not enough water. There were no instructions anywhere to boost the water so we had to call on the owner next door. Apparently the cleaner should have pressed the boost on the boiler but forgot! The no instructions thing was a bit of a theme. I had to work out the TV, heating, microwave and everything else without any reference. The DVD player had no remote and no external buttons so, although it did work, I could not adjust anything. We suffered subtitles and the wrong aspect throughout our stay. Sleeping was interesting. All the upstairs windows are roof lights and ceilings are low. Advice:- Do not sleep on the side or the double directly below the roof light. You will be dripped on all night! It was not leaking but the condensation was horrendous on the very poorly insulated units. We moved the bed forward after the first night and it was much better! Previous feedback mentioned the poor wifi. It is, in fact my phone refused to log onto it. I suspect one wifi was servicing too many people! This feedback sounds a bit negative, it isn't meant to be. We had a good time and it was generally fine. These were just small things!

Dalehouse Farm Holiday Cottages

Staithes 0.5 miles. These two, pretty, stone semi-detached cottages, are quietly tucked away in the small hamlet of Dalehouse, just a few minutes’ walk from the charming fishing village of Staithes. Set on the owners’ farm which has suckler cows and sheep, and where they breed Cleveland Bay horses, the cottages overlook fields and countryside and are in the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing holiday, with an abundance of walking tracks and cycling trails in the area. Originally the milking parlour, they have been converted to a good standard and provide comfortable accommodation with a traditional feel running through them. Both cottages have L-shaped open plan living areas, with leather sofas, electric stoves and family dining areas. The larger cottage offers the flexibility of a ground floor bedroom and wet room, enabling the less mobile to stay, while both have family bathrooms and first floor bedrooms with views of the lambs skipping around in the springtime. With both cottages having off road parking, guests can leave their cars safely behind and walk into historic Staithes, with its narrow cobbled streets and cottages that tumble down the bank towards the picturesque harbour, with a feeling of stepping back in time. Wander around the quaint shops, partake in tea and cakes, or enjoy fine fish and chips in one of the local inns. The Captain Cook's Museum is well worth a visit, or blow the cobwebs away with a bracing cliff top walk along the Cleveland Way long distance trail, that follows the coastline for miles. This special corner of North Yorkshire offers some superb countryside, with the North York Moors on your doorstep and delightful inland and coastal villages to explore, including Runswick Bay, Saltburn and Danby, with attractions such as the Danby Moors Exhibition Centre, the steam railway at Grosmont and the interesting mining museum at Skinningrove. Two well-placed cottages for wonderful family holidays.

The property

Mulgrave Cottage is the larger property of the two and has the advantage of a ground floor double bedroom and a wet room, which is suitable for those with limited mobility, having a pull down shower seat, grab rails and a portable shower chair if needed.

In the open plan living area there are comfortable leather sofas set around an electric stove, a cosy addition for cooler evenings.

There is also a well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

Stairs lead up to two pleasant bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Outside, the rear enclosed patio garden is safe for children to play and offers off road parking, not often found in the Staithes area.

A short stroll brings you to centre of this charming fishing village, whilst the surrounding countryside is a walker’s haven.

Note: This property adjoins Ref. 934802, together they sleep 10.

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.
