  • "The cottage is in a lovely position right By the harbour side."

    It’s tastefully decorated & was very cosy even in December. We thought there was a problem with the heated towel rail in the bathroom ( there wasn’t) but we were really impressed with the courteous and prompt help from Yorkshire coastal cottages & the owner if we had needed it-so would definitely book though Yorkshire coastal cottages again

  • "Broadband was an issue throughout our 3 night stay."

    We reported this to yourselves, however communication about this issue was patchy and the problem was not resolved during the duration of our stay. Also I believe your listing should be VERY clear about the steepness of the hill to the carpark, which whilst for us wasn't an issue could easily have been for others. PS a bread knife would have been useful All that being said we had a happy short break at Roxby Cottage

  • "The arrangements for parking were not clearly described."

    The fact that that car park was only accessible via a very steep road unsuitable for disabled people in wheelchairs or with a physical infirmity (arthritis) was not mentioned. And, although we followed the instructions with respect to using the parking permit to the letter, we still received a parking ticket. I have phoned three times to request a copy of the parking permit, but so far none has been sent.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage, nicely furnished and very tastefully decorated."

    It is kept immaculately clean. It has everything we needed for our stay. It was the second time I had stayed here (although I actually booked through a different agency). It has lovely views across the harbour

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.
