Stayed for 5 nights at short notice with a toddler, and it was great - lucky with the weather which helped, but Staithes is a lovely place to wander around, and very handy for days out to Whitby, Sandsend and Runswick Bay.
The cottage itself is clean and tidy, and cosy even at the cooler ends of the day. One or two things a bit tired (bits of carpet, the cooker), but just what you'd expect from a holiday cottage, and everything worked and felt safe with a two year old - who loved the different flights of stairs (with close supervision!).
Parking is directly outside, with permit provided. It's on a very steep bank, which requires some confidence with hill starts and parallel parking, but there's more room than it appears at first sight.
One warning - the cliffs around Staithes are populated by at least a few hundred seagulls, so bring earplugs as they start early (although I found them quite relaxing), and don't be too precious about your car paintwork, as it will be decorated within a few days.
In a lovely position on the sunny side of the beck. The accomodation is very comfortable and the main part of the village is only a few yards away across the footbridge. You can park your car right ouside. The place is nice and warm with plenty of seating and adequate cooking facilities. There is room to sit out with a nice view of the harbour below and the rest of the town across the beck. I cannot fault this cottage at all, in my opinion it is ideal. The only downside is that it is not mine."
This cottage is situated on the sunnyside of Staithes
There is parking three metres from the front door which in Staithes is a very rare thing indeed
and seen the geography a BIG advantage .
The cottage is the perfect place for young and old to relax in after a day enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
The old capital of Roman England is not too far away (York) and the towns of Whitby and Scarborough are both within an hours drive.The outstanding beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors national park is easy to enjoy as the cottage is very close by or maybe even part of it.
I could write on and on about this cottage and surroundings but it,s maybe better going there and experiencing it for yourself.
