Overview

About the property

Pelican in Staithes, North Yorkshire Moors, England - Quiet and convenient location. A few steps from pub & restaurants and two minutes walk to safe beach

Pelican is a beautifully refurbished quirky yet contemporary 3-storey village town house offering comfortable accommodation for larger groups and families. Situated in the cobbled heart of old Staithes - walk out of the back door and watch the ever changing tidal beck or stroll out from the front into the unspoilt high street with its traditional shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The harbour, beach and rock pools are an easy few minutes walk away. For more adventurous walkers, Staithes is situated on the Cleveland Way with excellent walks both north and south from the village. Staithes also has a well established artist community, renowned art gallery and annual arts festival held in September.

About Emma Wood

I spent many childhood holidays in Staithes in the holiday home my family bought in the 1970s and fell in love with its unique charm then. Guy and I have visited as often as possible over the years and have been lucky enough to buy our own seaside home in the village. We live in Yorkshire so get to spend plenty of time in our favourite place with our three daughters, family and friends.

Emma Wood purchased this house in 2014

Why Emma Wood chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

Staithes is unique. It has all the traditional charm without the tourist hustle and bustle. Despite this unspoilt beauty, Staithes has plenty going on with a thriving diverse community of fisherman, artists, small businesses and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Pelican is in the heart of the village and when we're there we really feel part of Staithes life. It's one of the few larger properties in old Staithes so plenty of room for our family and friends to stay. We love sipping a glass or two in our decked yard and wandering down to the bridge glass in hand to watch the sunset.

Fabulous Pelican House in wonderful Staithes

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. The house was perfect. It was well equipped with lovely decor. We were a group of 6 adults, 2 children aged 10 and 4. Plus our mad terrier.

The house had a big pelican above the front bay window which made the property easy to find.

When we gained access there was a welcome gift for adults, children and even our dog. It was very thoughtful of the owners

The house had two bathrooms, which was great on a morning when we're all getting ready to head out. The house had everything that made it a perfect home from home.

The weather was not kind to us, but that did not stop us getting out and about. We had a lovely walk on the cliff tops to Runswick Bay, followed by a picnic on the beach. Both children and dog had a fab time.

The harbour wall in Staithes is perfect for crabbing. The most we caught in one go was 31. Not bad for first timers

We went to both pubs in the village and ate there. No complaints, they were both good.

If you have not been to Staithes I would highly recommend you go there and stay at Pelican House. It was a fabulous week.

A lovely house, plenty of space and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in Staithes, the village is lovely. Pelican is very close to the beach which was great for grandchildren and dogs! A very comfortable and well equipped base for exploring the area - beautiful beaches and glorious North York Moors. Would recommend the area and this property for anyone looking for a family holiday.

Stylish, spacious and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

House was great - full of individual touches like a coffee grinder and filter machine, old-school record player and vinyl, books and games. Big beds with white cotton sheets and earplugs to combat the noise of the seagulls..

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Staithes harbour, beach and rock pools are a few minutes walk away.

There is a small safe sandy beach within the harbour and other rock pools and swimming spots either side of the harbour walls.

Runswick Bay with a larger beach can be accessed via the Cleveland Way (a beautiful 1 hour walk and the chance to get the bus back), or by car (15minutes). Slightly further south along the coast is the wide sandy beach of Sandsend and the beaches and harbour at Whitby (20 minutes drive)

Travel:

Nearest airports are Teesside/Durham (45minutes); Leeds/Bradford (90 minutes away) and Newcastle (90 minutes)

Nearest stations are Whitby (20 minutes) and Saltburn (15 minutes)

A car is recommended but not essential

Distances:

Within Staithes there are three pubs all providing lunch time and evening meals (two in the old village and one at 't'top'); a butchers (which also sells basics such as milk, eggs, bread); two restaurants and a cafe plus other souvenir/gift shops. These are all within a few minutes walk of the house.

Further up the village there are other cafes, shops and a supermarket. These are only 10-15 minutes walk although the hill is quite steep.

Most supermarkets (Asda and Sainsburys) will deliver.

Further Details:

Staithes , as well as being an ancient fishing village, is home to the popular Children's CBBC series 'Old Jacks Boat'. Indeed, both twin rooms have a view of Old Jack's house and younger children will have fun spotting the many other locations used in the programme.

A variety of activities and courses are available in Staithes and the neighbouring areas. These include art classes, cookery, coastal foraging, fishing and surfing.

Staithes is located within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and there are many places of interest within a short drive.

A few miles North of Staithes is Saltburn-on-Sea with its beaches and impressive cliff railway (funicular)

For steam train enthusiasts you can access the North Yorkshire Moors Railway within 20 minutes at Whitby or into the Moors at Goathland or Pickering.

Whitby is a larger harbour town with many attractions including the ruined Abbey and the Dracula Experience plus seaside arcades and a funfair.

Captain Cook has several connections with Staithes and the Captain Cook museum is a short walk from the house.

Walking around the cliffs you might still find some of the fossils (trilobites) and jet that made the area famous.

Have a go at fishing, catch a few crabs and if you don't catch anything you can buy freshly caught local seafood direct from the company located at the top of the village. Lobster and crab are the local speciality

Staithes is the perfect base for seeing stunning scenery from the coastal cliff top walks along The Cleveland Way; exploring interesting geology; fossil hunting; rock pooling and crabbing off rocks in the calm waters of the harbour, or simply just taking time out to sit, relax and enjoy some traditional Yorkshire ale in the local pubs.
