    We had a really nice week and the location is brilliantly situated for so many places. A huge thank you to Christine and Brian for making us feel so welcome, for sharing their knowledge of the area and for introducing us to their ponies and goats. Would love to stay again.

  • "Great location, lovely cottage, great for walks and it is close to many of the surrounding areas of interest."

    The cottage is dog friendly, full of character, well equipped, very clean and tidy and well looked after. The cottage is part of a small working farm and we enjoyed being able to meet all of their ponies, goats and sheep. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and are happy to give information about local places to visit and recommend good pubs and places to eat out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone and we intend on returning next year.

    Scrupulously clean and fresh to walk into, it has everything needed for a comfortable stay.The rural surroundings are so quiet and peaceful whilst still giving good access to much of interest. This stretch of coast has some stunning gems like Staithes and Runswick. The owners, Christine and Brian, are lovely people - welcoming and helpful, who really want their guests to enjoy themselves. The selection of animals on their farm is the icing on the cake!

  • "Our family just spent a week at Street House Farm Cottage, it was a fantastic week the owners lived next door and have Shetland ponies and sheet the day before we arrived one of the ponies gave birth to a foal and the sheep had several lambs."

    During the week the owner took our two girls over to see the foal and lambs they also allowed the girls to feed some of the lambs, both girls had a wonderful time and enjoyed the whole experience. The owners themselves are very friendly, helpful and nice people to get on with. I would recommend staying at the cottage and would give them 5 stars for every thing.

  • "Christine and Brian were very good hosts."

    The cottage is very clean with everything you need, plenty of cooking utensils etc if you want to cook. Beds were very comfortable. There were throws if needed in bedroom and lounge. Having a boot room is so useful to store boots and dog accessories etc. Christine told us of many walks from front door which was ideal for us and our dog. Many access paths to Cleveland Way. A good walk into Staithes along paths and nice pubs and few shops there. Runswick bay is lovely with a circular walk , steep up rocks and steps and back along disused railway. Christine and Brian showed me their shetland ponies and pygmy goats along with their 2 Boxers. The wine and fresh eggs were a lovely touch. We would definitely return if wanted to visit the area again.

    Spotlessly clean and well equipped yet set up so you can just relax and enjoy rather than feeling you have to be on your best behaviour all the time. The location is stunning - cliff top walks virtually from the door and beaches close by. Christine and Brian are so friendly - always on hand but never intrusive. We really hope to be able to return (and stay longer!). Many thanks.

    Thanks again to Christine an Brian were the perfect hosts, welcoming us to the cottage and giving us information about the area. The cottage couldn’t have been nicer - spotlessly clean and comfortable, with everything you needed provided. It’s set in a tiny hamlet of a few cottages, so for someone who lives in a city is just amazingly peaceful. It’s an ideal base for exploring a beautiful part of the country with loads of walks from your doorstep and a short drive to the moors and coastal attractions like Staithes, Whitby and Runswick Bay. All in all a truly memorable week.

    Just right for three people. Comfortable and roomy lounge. Bed and bedding of good quality - which is a must in a holiday home. Good size kitchen with good size table to eat at. A useful piece of extra garden land opposite the house with outdoor furniture - although not used as little chilly in the evenings.

Renovated to a high standard and offering comfortable accommodation, this inviting property provides a real home-from-home, with original features such as a cast iron range with a warming open fire, perfect for chilly evenings.

With a well-equipped kitchen and a dining area, this cottage has everything you need to prepare tasty home-cooked meals after a busy day.

The king-size double bedroom offers superb country views so you can really appreciate this rural location, while the bunk room is perfect for tucking your sleepy kids to bed after a fun day exploring.

Outside, you can take advantage of sunny days and sit out on the patio with a morning cup of tea, or why not enjoy a BBQ with the family?

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.
