“A Gem”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My partner and I decided to book a couple of days away at short notice and found this little gem of a place in Staithes. We love Staithes and we've stayed in a couple of cottages in the village before but this is without doubt the best.

Coastguard Cottage is a lovely four story house, with kitchen in the basement, living room above and the bedrooms accomodated on the floors above that. The kitchen is nicely laid out with a big farmhouse table in the middle. It has all mod cons... dishwasher, cooker, fridge, iPod dock, TV etc. We spent hours in the kitchen in the evening after a long day exploring the coastline, listening to music with a glass of wine. The living room is very cosy and comfortable with TV, DVD, internet router with free wifi and a lovely woodburning stove.

The village itself is a little like Robin Hoods Bay but a little quieter with more of a feeling of community. There is a bistro/cafe a few yards down the road, but the opening hours are a bit of a mystery nowdays. There are 3 pubs in the village... The Royal George, The Cod and Lobster and The Captain Cook (at the top of the hill) or alternatively if you feel like a walk, The Fox and Hounds in nearby Dalehouse... so if you don't feel like cooking, there's plenty of choice in eating out.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Coatguard Cottage to anyone who's looking to get away from the hustle and bustle... in fact I already have!
