    “The cottage was perfect for our family of three - characterful and cosy!”

About the property

A charming, terraced fisherman's cottage, tucked away in the historic village of Staithes.

Quaint and cosy, this traditional cottage has been lovingly restored whilst retaining its original character, with beamed ceilings and steep, winding cottage stairs.

Offering a warm and snug sitting room with multi-fuel stove and a kitchenette leading off, this comfortable little cottage makes a lovely, romantic retreat for couples.

A five minute walk through the narrow, cobbled streets brings you to the harbour and the beach, with local inns, tea rooms and a bistro all at hand.

This cottage is well placed for the numerous walking trails around, including bracing cliff-top walks on the Cleveland Way!

Visit nearby Whitby with its famous abbey and 199 steps, explore the dramatic North York Moors or take a trip back in time on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, only 11 miles away.

A lovely, cottage not to be missed!

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.

Note: Property does not have a shower.
