Excellent - Spotless - perfect for me and my two boys

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept and just had everything we needed for a short break - we will definitely be back. The actual owners communications were excellent but the ones from owners direct website and emails etc requesting payment to the company when this is clearly incorrect as it is actually pay the owner were confusing and frustrating and caused hassle neither I nor the owner needed. The name Owners Direct is very misleading as it is not the owners it is an intermediary that charges the customer and the owner in exactly the same way as booking.com etc and is not what it proclaims as as some sort of altruistic owners cooperative. Ill go properly direct or through touris info next time.

Lovely, well equipped little cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage in fantastic location in the picturesque village of Staithes. Very well equipped with all the facilities we needed - modern kitchen, comfy bedrooms and sitting room. Very close to High St, so very handy for Cobbles (amazing take away pizzas), Royal George pub, Dotty's Vintage tea room, Cod & Lobster (best for food), and the small beach is just a few minutes walk away.

Perfect place if you want to get away for a few days. We had a few questions for Amanda and nothing was too much trouble.

Would not hesitate to recommend

It is a beautiful cottage, in perfect location to enjoy staithes and the area.

  • 5 of 5

A quaint cottage. We stayed with a 3 year old and baby and there was plenty of room. It has lots of character especially the living room. The cottage was well presented and clean. The only thing missing for us was a washing machine due to having young children but I appreciate most people probably don't want to wash on holiday! The owners were easy to communicate with and deposit returned promptly. We would definitely recommend to friends.

Quaint and central

  • 3 of 5

Property: lovely location if you don't want to bring a car. Loading and unloading is a pain. Close to pubs and cafe. The cottage was clean and essentials provided were a nice touch.

Shower was a little bit temperamental but owner quickly sorted the issue out.

The bed in the single room is a little noisy, had to resort to ear plugs in the double room.

I would say the cottage was just about an ok size for three people.

The sea view is stretching it a bit, you have to stand up in the living room to look out of the windows.

Place: In short, Staithes is great for a day trip but very small and limited when staying for three nights. The pubs do food between 6-830pm and were packed due to only having three available to choose from and all quite small, in terms of tables available to eat food. The menus are quite similar too so the variety of available food is limited. It would have been nice to not worry about whether you'd get a table and then have people hovering whilst you are eating.

There's no post office,news agents, shop or bakery within a reasonable walking distance. There's only a butchers! The Co-op is a good 40minute walk away, including the steep hill! Best to stock up but difficult to get car near to unload.

There are some beautiful walks from the cottage which are worth doing.

A visit to Whitby is worth doing and there is a vast array of shops/pubs/restaurants to choose from. With hindsight we would have stayed in Whitby and had a day trip to Staithes.

Owner's Response: It is a shame that you appeared not have enjoyed your recent short break. The issues you outline with the village are the key reasons why people love Staithes so much and return several times a year. The cottage has two good sized bedrooms and large lounge none of which are as small or cramped as you imply - I doubt very much that you would find as much space in a central location in Whitby for a cottage sleeping 3 people. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, but I would suggest that you do bit more research before you decide on a location for your next trip.

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.
