At the bottom of the steep cobbled bank in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Staithes you'll find our Grade II listed fisherman's cottage. When I first saw it the word that sprung to mind was 'bijou'. Since we bought Lahney Cottage in February 2016, it has undergone a complete refurbishment, with new furniture, cooker and hob, equipment, new flooring and carpets, as well as being redecorated throughout. The kitchen is very well equipped, the lounge has a TV with DVD player, internet radio with Bluetooth speaker and, of course, wi-fi. On the first floor you will find the cosy double bedroom and the bathroom with an electric shower over the bath. The cottage has electric wall heaters in the rooms and also a log burner in the lounge. Short term parking is available for unloading...At the bottom of the steep cobbled bank in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Staithes you'll find our Grade II listed fisherman's cottage.

Short term parking is available for unloading and there is car parking available at the top of the village, about a 5 minute walk from the cottage (we do provide a permit for the council Pay & Display car park, but this doesn’t guarantee you a spot, so parking fees may apply). Your dog is welcome for no extra charge, but we do like to know if they will be there, so please let us know when you book. Lahney Cottage provides a fantastic base for exploring Staithes, Whitby and the beautiful North York Moors. More

Had a lovely weekend break in Eva’s cottage. The welcome pack of bread, butter and milk plus basics like herbs and spices were a nice touch as was the provision of washing up liquid and general cleaners. Would definitely recommend.

About the neighborhood
Historically Staithes (pronounced “Steers” by the locals) was an important fishing community and was the home of Captain James Cook during his apprenticeship before he joined the Navy. Staithes has always been popular with painters and was the base for a group of artists who became known simply as the 'Staithes Group' in the 19th and 20th centuries. Artists continue to live and work in the village and the Staithes Festival of Arts & Heritage, which was launched in September 2012, has now become an annual event. Staithes is of course also home to the children's television series 'Old Jack's Boat', starring Bernard Cribbins and Salty the dog! For eating and drinking in the village there are three dog friendly pubs, a number of cafes and, of course, a fish and chip shop. There are a few...
Getting around
There is a regular bus service from the top of the village, the nearest train station is at Saltburn, about 8 miles away.
