Lovely property with plenty of room for 6 adults. Well equipped, clean, tidy, spacious bedrooms (don't forget - it's a cottage right in the centre of Staithes).

Fabulous house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Salmon Cottage is a perfect family holiday cottage. It's a great size, well equipped and in such a brilliant position. It has two good bathrooms and a fantastic dining kitchen (much more generous than the photos show). We had a fabulous time and will definitely be returning!

Lovely cottage, but locks need replacing and a key for the garden gate

  • 3 of 5

We arrived at the cottage, however the lock on the main door was not working correctly and it took approx 8 attempts to unlock the door which was very frustrating and annoying. Once inside the cottage it was lovely and a very calming atmosphere. We tried to open the back door which is situated in one of the bedrooms and again the lock was not working correctly, on the sixth attempt the door opened! We went outside to the back garden area only to find a padlock on the gate into this area, but no key to open the padlock with, we searched the cottage for the key, but no luck in finding it. At this point we called the owner of the cottage, no answer so we left a message, we also sent an e-mail to the owner asking where the key was and the response was "is it not hanging on a hook in the kitchen"

We had booked this cottage mainly due to the fact that it had a back garden area (we had 2 dogs with us) and we planned a bbq, however not being able to enter this area spoilt our stay at this cottage as we couldn't have a bbq or sit out with our dogs, a great disappointment to us.

Lovely house in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second fabulous stay in Salmon cottage. It is a great house for families only moments from the harbour. Very warm, comfortable and well-appointed. There are two car parks at the top of the hill. The council one is £6.00 for 24 hours and has the advantage of being able to top parking up remotely using Ringo (30p charge). The private car park next to the council one is £4 for 24hrs. You can also get permits for 2-7 days parking from the information centre, although it hasn't been open very regularly when we have been in October and April.

Idyllic - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Salmon Cottage, the cottage itself is spotless and there was plenty of room for us all (grandparents, Mum & Dad plus 3 grandchildren aged 3, 5 & 9). The large farmhouse style kitchen table was a real boon and there was everything you needed in the cottage including child safe cups and plates. We enjoyed a bbq in the garden and spent many a happy hour rock pooling and building sands castles. We hoped we might be close to the sea front and we weren't disappointed, literally just a few steps from the Cod & Lobster. there are plenty of places to see around and about, its a beautiful area of the country. We have booked for 2 weeks next year!

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
