“Too cold in Winter”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This is a lovely little cottage in the heart of Staithes but I would not recommend this cottage in the winter. Me and my husband stayed 4 nights during Dec 2013-Jan 2014 and struggled keeping the place warm as it has all tiled floors. Also as the owners live above the cottage don't expect peace and quiet.

Management Response

upon the arrival of all holidaymakers i make myself known to the clients and tell them that if they have any problems to tell me as i only live next door and will help in anyway i can.as no complaint about the heating situation was mentioned i find this review was unfair .as for the noise the cottage was booked over the new year period with lots of visitors coming and going into the village perhaps a more remote cottage would have been more suitable.

“Cosy cottage in great location”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This cottage is ideal for a short stay. Plenty of room for a couple. Facilities are excellent and the owner keeps the cottage beautiful and clean. Even on a cold autumn evening guests will be cosy and warm. Would stay here again and the owner is lovely and welcoming also.

Just returned from a weekend away staying in this lovely compact little cottage in the beautiful village of Staithes. Would I recommend it absolutely although the terrain would need to be taken into consideration for the less mobile.

“Great Cosy Cottage!”

My husband and I , have recently enjoyed a short break at Staithes.
The location of Potter's Cottage is ideal as it is central to local pubs and bistros. It also has a stunning view of the cliffs that overlook roxby beck. Inside, is very clean and comfortable , and it offers a a compact but well equipped kitchen. The owners were very kind and helpful towards us. I would definitely recommend to a friend and stay again!
