“Fantastic property”
Reviewed 22 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We've been coming to Staithes for years and stayed in lots of cottages which accommodate 6 people plus dogs. And I have got to say Pelican is the best in the village. So spacious, great for teenagers to escape, the young uns had the top floor and us oldies had the first, it's great to have two bathrooms. Dogs were happy too. Before we'd even arrived I had decided to book again for next year! It was a special holiday for us, we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and our daughter found out she'd got a place at Cambridge while we here here too, so we've made even more happy memories. The standard of the house is excellent and really felt like home. We can't wait for next year

Staithes is a beautiful place for a special birthday and the 2 minute walk to the harbour down the cobbled street is lovely. So glad you had a good weekend

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed in Pelican House for a week and it is a perfect base fir exploring Staithes. The house is absolutely lovely! Spacious- perfect for large family of 8 and the beautiful local art pieces suggest that is was furnished with love. The place is very practical with little details such as toys for kids, games for rainy day, or even coffee grinder. We even received a welcome gift - a bottle of wine and chocolate. When I forgotten few things, Emma kindly sent it home! Staithes is a lovely fishing village with many opportunities to look for fossils or walk and admire the coast. There are several local pubs offering food, cafe and several art shops. The traffic is restricted- but there parking places in the walking distance- and it is possible to drive to the house for the pick up/ drop off. I would really recommend the stay.

“Wonderful, fabulous, can't fault it!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a lovely comfortable welcoming stay here. Ideally located, and very spacious. Lovely throughout and the attention to detail was brilliant. Your every need was catered for. Fresh milk and eggs, bottle of wine, chocolates, a brilliant welcome pack full of information, fresh flowers. DVDs, games, toys, books, a bed for the dog, log fire was set with plenty more fuel, condiments, a coffee grinder, blue tooth speaker, sky TV, Apple TV, wi-fi. The list goes on. The nicest holiday property I have ever stayed in by far, and I have been to a few. It was a home, not a holiday let. Adults were happy, kids were happy, dog was happy. So what can be done to improve this? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Thank you Emma. We will be back xxx

“Pelican was the icing on the cake”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We absolutely love Staithes and we were looking for a cottage big enough for our three sons, plus girlfriends for our anniversary weekend. Pelican was perfect. The location right at the bottom of the high street was brilliant, and the accommodation itself was beautifully decorated with everything you need. The woodturner was a real treat at this time of year. We would definitely return to Pelican again and again! Thank you to Emma and Guy for leaving a little card and bottle of fizz to celebrate.

“Well appointed, great location.”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very clean, nicely furnished and well equipped. I would stay here again without hesitation. Outside space is small but there are very few places in Staithes with any at all. Two minutes to the harbour.
