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.

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.

A Perfect Get-away

  • 4 of 5

The first day we arrived, we started talking about our return visit.

A superb, well appointed and comfortable cottage.

An ideal location for exploring the picturesque and historic village of Staithes, by foot.

Perfect for visiting nearby coastal and inland villages and towns, whether by foot, bus or car.

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!
