Interaction with guests
Our housekeepers will clean the cottage just before your arrival and leave the door open, with the key just inside on the table - that way you can relax the minute you arrive. They live two minutes away across the footbridge and are always on hand if you need anything, day or night. They may well pop across to make sure everything is to your satisfaction but mostly will leave to in peace to enjoy your stay with no intrusion.

The cottage has the most pleasant view of the harbor from both the living room and the front patio. Everything inside and out was spotlessly clean, and the kitchen was equipped with all one needs for a holiday rental. The location is perfect, the hiking...More

A misleading review by 'GK Wall' (which is not his real name) who has a history of posting unpleasant reviews. Other cottage owners and restaurants are encouraged not to accept proposals by 'this man to take down his bad reviews reviews in exchange for cash...More

About the neighbourhood
Staithes is a natural harbour where Roxby Beck meets the sea, surrounded by breathtaking coastal scenery. It's on the Cleveland Way with stunning walks either along the cliffs or inland. There's a sandy beach, a stony shore and piers for fishing.

Visiting Staithes is like stepping back in time. Picturesque, higgledy-piggledy cottages with red pantiled roofs are grouped around tiny yards, up steps, down winding cobbled streets or through a maze of alleyways - and clearly steeped in history. There's not much that hasn't sprung from the sea and fishing - even the houses are named after boats - Blue Jacket House, Star of Hope Cottage, Mizpah Cottage, Confidence Cottage, Unity House and Wavelet.
Car advised
How to get there
A car is best for exploring the whole area, however it is possible to arrive at Saltburn station and get a taxi down to Staithes. There are buses to Whitby and, of course, the walks along the Cleveland way.
