Exactly as described this lovely cottage was very well furnished, clean with everything you need. The village is quaint and the people friendly, food at the Cod & Lobster was excellent. We would love to comeback soon

Nice peaceful cottage in the heart of staithes

  • 4 of 5

Great location, dog friendly, clean and tidy, well equipped kitchen, nice bedrooms, comfy sofa, TVs did not work properly due to Ariel problem, which several other guests had noted in the guest book, not a problem for us as we were out walking all day, but had weather been bad or you have other restriction, it could have been a problem. Owners did try and fix it & give us small discount for the inconvenience. Local pub very nice, no shop in the old village, so important to remember supplies before returning. Walk from car park to cottage is up/down the steep hill, which was fine for us but would be hard if you had mobility issues (or possibly small children). Beach a 2 min walk away. Close access to Whitby, nice drive to salt burn, dogs had a great time!

Perfect location to explore the Yorkshire Coas

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable, well maintained cottage in the middle of the old part of Staithes. Right on the harbor and only 20 yards from the Cod & Lobster pub. It was a perfect base to explore the Yorkshire coastline.

Lovely cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Staithes. The cottage was clean and nicely refurbished. The location was fantastic: literally across the road from a wonderful pub and the sea! People in the village were very friendly and the short break was just what we needed. Would recommend and use again!
