Unique Cottage With Sea Views. Wi-Fi now available



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Cinder Path in Staithes, Nr. Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors, England, UK

The perfect hideaway for couples Cinder Path is an unusual two storey cottage set high above the High Street with magnificent views out across the roof tops to Staithes harbour and the sea beyond. The cottage is very cosy with storage/electric heaters throughout and has been furnished to reflect the character of the property. It is located on one of the many cliff top paths that surround the village, but is also conveniently just off the main High Street. There are double and single bedrooms at the cottage, which is perfect if you wanted to bring an additional guest. Modern bathroom and kitchen. Free Wi-Fi available from beginning of June 2016.

comfortable well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a very good location in the old village. It was warm, clean, well equipped and comfortable. The chairs in the sitting room were very comfortable. The stairs were quite steep and would benefit from a hand rail. The bedroom overlooked the main street. We were not disturbed by noise, but it was a bit light at night.

Relaxing and reviving stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2week stay in this comfortable and well furnished cosy cottage. Have been visiting Staithes since 1985 and stayed in many different cottages and this one has an ideal location for the harbour and beach. It was exactly as described - clean and comfortable and well stocked with items such as a large umbrella and even a walking stick with a seat! The parking permit was a godsend and must have saved us over 80 pounds in parking fees and no daily dash to the top car park to put the ticket on the car. Highly recommended and lovely people to deal with.

Sunny weekend by the sea

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in a perfect spot tucked just above the main cobbled street, a few minutes stroll from the seafront. It's a beautiful unspoilt village with lots of quirky character,a handful of art galleries and places to eat and drink. The pub on the seafront serves amazing chips and a good selection of ales and wine. The cottage was as described, neat, very clean and surprisingly spacious. The lounge is bright and airy and we found the cottage a perfect base to get out and enjoy the sun! Will certainly consider staying again.

Nice well located cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Cinder Path on recommendation from friends and were not disappointed.

The layout took a bit of getting used to, but was logical to make the most of the view from upstairs. The lounge was relaxing light and airy with comfortable seating. The bathroom was clean and modern and the shower was fine.

The kitchen/diner was clean and well laid out. It looked well equipped, but, we didn't use any of the cooking facilities as there are plenty of excellent eating and drinking venues within a 5 minute walk.

The bed is one of the most comfortable we have had the pleasure of sleeping in.

The booking process was easy and fairly painless. Amanda answered all queries promptly and sorted any problems without fuss.

We can recommend the Cod and Lobster on the harbour front, they serve delicious food in large portions at a reasonable price. The beer is good as well.

Another recommendation goes to 'Dotty's Vintage Tea Shop' (See them on Facebook). The Owner is lovely and her 'assistant' is one of the craziest people you could wish to meet. They made the whole experience well worth it. We can't recommend the fresh, home baked, scones and cakes enough.

Will we be back.................Of course we will..

Lovely well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

Visited the cottage over Easter weekend and had a lovely time. As previous reviews have said it is very well equipped with a nice modern kitchen and bathroom and really comfortable bed. It has still has kept its character, and is very spacious. The cottage is in a good location and I would highly recommend it (our little Jack Russell also loved it)
