About sara esler

My name is Sara Esler.

sara esler purchased this cottage in 2008

Why sara esler chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We wanted somewhere that was easily accessible to us and offered lots to do for the children as well as ourselves. We love the village, there are so many nooks & crannys, alleyways, paths, steps, hiding places, look outs, climbing & scrabbling spots, activities, walks, sea views, ghost stories, historic tales, rock pools, fossils, fish in the sea & friendly faces...that we never tire of going up there.

The North Yorkshire Coast is a beautiful part of England with many beautiful beaches & coastline to visit from Robin Hoods Bay to Saltburn on Sea, and in land from Surfing at Scarborough & Sandsend, the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway, the famous Magpie restaurant & Abbey at Whitby, Castle Howard, Dalby Forest, picturesque Hutton le hole and Riverleux Abbey.

What makes this cottage unique

Salmon Cottage is a few steps from the sea and right in the heart of Staithes. The cottage is unusual in the village as it has plenty of space and a garden at the back where you can enjoy a BBQ in the summer months. The cottage is easily heated and enjoys a cosy stove to warm up the living room in winter. Please note although the garden is enclosed it is not secure - dogs can v easily escape!

The 2 pubs in the village are literally a stones throw from the front door, as well as the Endeavour which serves high quality meals.

The butchers shop next door is open every morning mon-sat and sells fresh bread and milk as well as all the usual.

Fantastic cottage, really well equipped and full of charm.

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage ample room for us all, very close to sea and Staithes is a great place for a holiday. Local pubs did great takeaways and the people were really helpful. Lovely places to visit a short drive away.

A lovely well equipped stylish cottage in an enviable location

  • 4 of 5

Very roomy for a Staithes cottage. This was a return visit and we hope to come again. We have stayed in other cottages in the village where a parking permit was provided. This would be a welcome bonus but not a deal breaker Glenvale used at cost of £40 for the week with guaranteed space so not too bad. Staithes is probably not suitable for people with poor mobility because steep is the norm. Really excellent food in the Cod and Lobster a few steps from the cottage.

Warm, comfortable and stylish cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Salmon Cottage for the past two years during the Festival of Arts and Heritage. The cottage is nicely furnished and comfortable and made a great venue for showing our paintings. We stayed on after the festival and enjoyed a quiet break eating out at the local pubs and restaurants ( all very close by) and also self catering in the well equipped kitchen. The beds are comfortable and having two bathrooms was a much appreciated bonus.
