    “Delightful”

    We are on our 4th night in the Old Joiners work shop. I can honestly say we've thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The old joiners workshop is a bijou but well thought out self catering place with an open plan layout and open terrace with seating available. The shower is of decent size and nicely tucked away in the private bathroom. There is lots of storage on offer for your clothes, coats and bits n bobs. The kitchen is well thought out and boasts all the things you'd need for your stay including ...

    We are on our 4th night in the Old Joiners work shop. I can honestly say we've thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The old joiners workshop is a bijou but well thought out self catering place with an open plan layout and open terrace with seating available. The shower is of decent size and nicely tucked away in the private bathroom. There is lots of storage on offer for your clothes, coats and bits n bobs. The kitchen is well thought out and boasts all the things you'd need for your stay including scales, sieve and decent cooking pans. The views are wonderful, views over the Beck and down to the Harbour. It's quiet here, fresh and unique and everyone has been so friendly. The Old Joiners shop has been intricately thought out, the workmanship is admirable and the lighting adds ambience....lots of choice of lighting. But I must clear 3 things up that other reviewers have been negative about: 1) "No Cutlery" - really??? In a self catering place one would determine there is no cutlery? This comment tickled me but also annoyed me as I feared it would put others off. I can confirm there is Cutlery here and plenty of it. So no need to whip out your own cutlery drawer!!! Just perhaps look a little further and think outside the box and you'll find it. 2) "The mattress is of poor quality & uncomfortable" - OK. Just hear me out. There's 1000's of mattresses on the market right? And we all have different needs and requirements for a mattress, right? Gary has clearly put a lot of effort into this place and planned everything. Do we really think he'd create such a unique place and then stick a "past its best" mattress in it? I don't think so. There is no way one mattress will suit all, but surely we bare this in mind when travelling?! I have issues with sleeping due to cancer treatment and I am very particular about my bedding and mattresses and have the highest quality at home, but I can confirm most days I slept to 9-10:30am and slept like a log. 3) "Parking" - Why anyone would draw attention to this knowing full well when they book ANY place in Staithes that there is no parking for non residents in the village and you therefore have to leave the car at the top of the hill. It's very clearly mentioned in the advert for this place and about Staithes. We have found its a positive thing to not have the car, it's forced us to relax and not galavant about. Granted the hill is steep but it takes less than 10 minutes to walk up it and that's coming from someone who's had chemo, has asthma and is more tired than usual. Things and places to try in Staithes itself: • Cod and Lobster. We are here 4 nights and had fish of some sort each night. We even met the fisherman who caught my Lobster that day. Great food. Pub grub. Friendly staff. Great for allergies. • Betsy and Bo. Great for posh pasta meals to cook from home. Sweets and I mean proper sweets and homemade chocolates. • Dottys Tearoom. We had a cream tea here and it was lush and the staff were so friendly. It also has vintage keepsakes too. • The Harbour. Walk too and around the Harbour of Staithes. From both sides, so Cowbar and Staithes itself. But check the Tidal times or you'll get stuck. Take a walk down in winter at about 5pm and listen to the immense sound of the waves. • Wonder the sleepy streets of Staithes. Outside of Staithes: • Whitby. Great for gifts, lunch out and a wander. • Robins Hoods Bay. Great for a wander and for those appreciating Architecture and design. The buildings are quite special. • Sandsend. An absolutely gorgeous little village. Pretty and very aesthetically pleasing.

The property

This endearing little cottage, has been creatively converted from an old joiners shop, in the charming seaside village of Staithes.

Small but perfectly formed, it provides the perfect romantic retreat for couples wishing to explore this beautiful heritage coastline.

Quietly tucked away, it has a bright and cheerful open plan living area, with a modern kitchen and comfortable seating, along with a state of the art electric feature fire, that crackles and creates a lovely ambiance to the property.

French doors throw in plenty of light and open onto a stone terrace, where you can sit and relax with a glass of wine and watch the boats bobbing about in the water.

With lovely views of the estuary from all windows and quality furnishings, the Old Joiner's Shop can't fail to please.

Every bit of space has been cleverly utilised, with quirky hiddden cupboards and shelves, along with a bespoke sliding door to the bedroom and the contemporary shower room, with a large walk-in shower.

A two-minute walk brings you to the local inns, tea rooms and shops of this quaint, atmospheric village, where the old fishermen's cottages slope down towards the sea.

Wander around the cobbled streets and narrow alleyways, or take a stroll beside the harbour or an invigorating clifftop walk along the Cleveland Way.

The Staithes Heritage Centre Museum is also well worth a visit, with its exhibits and information on Captain Cook, who lived in the village.

With easy access to nearby Whitby and many other local attractions, this cottage provides an excellent base for an enjoyable 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.
