Holiday Rental House
Roma Cottage is a charming ropemaker's cottage in the heart of beautiful Staithes on the North Yorkshire coast. Two hundred years old, but sympathetically restored, Roma Cottage retains many original features, from its beamed ceilings to quaint staircases. It is well furnished and provides comfortable, high quality self-catering accommodation. Set peacefully on a footpath, it is just 2 minutes' walk from the beach, pub and harbour. Its setting off the road makes it a perfect choice for families with young children. And its location in the heart of the village means that you're never more than five minutes from the beach, harbour or pub.

Two hundred years old, but sympathetically restored, Roma Cottage retains many original features, from its beamed ceilings to quaint staircases. It is well furnished and provides comfortable, high quality self-catering accommodation. Set peacefully on a footpath, it is just 2 minutes' walk from the beach, pub and harbour. Its setting off the road makes it a perfect choice for families with young children. And its location in the heart of the village means that you're never more than five minutes from the beach, harbour or pub. The spacious accommodation is set over three floors, with an attractive patio area with table and chairs to the front of the house and a small enclosed yard with barbecue and seating to the rear. In addition to the cosy log burner in the living room, the cottage is heated throughout by night storage heaters. With three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, Roma Cottage easily accommodates up to six people plus a baby. It's the perfect base for a relaxing break whatever the season, with its cosy, newly refurbished living room and comfortable beds. The kitchen was entirely re-fitted in 2016, and the bathroom in 2018. In summer, sit out on the patio and watch the sunset with a glass of wine; in the chillier months, curl up in front of the warming log burner. Staithes was named by the Sunday Times in 2015 and 2016 as one of the 10 best holiday home locations in the UK: 'one of the friendliest and most artistic villages on the northeast coast. Its setting couldn't be more picturesque - cosy cottages scrunched up together on winding streets, tucked away in a jagged cove by the sea...a picture-book spot, with cottages packed tight behind the harbour'. Unspoilt beaches, fantastic walks and the delights of the stunning North York Moors National Park await you. Booking Information: Changeover day is Friday for weekly bookings Minimum stay is 3 nights One small well behaved dog permitted (£30) Roma Cottage is strictly No Smoking Towels are not provided More

Hi Jill - I'm so glad you had an enjoyable trip and found the cottage comfortable. Storage heaters are not the most responsive form of heating, but they can be adjusted, and the open fire is very effective when it gets going, so I'm sorry...More

About the neighbourhood
You'll find outstanding beaches at Runswick Bay and Sandsend within five miles. And just ten minutes' drive along the 'Dinosaur Coast' lies the historic town of Whitby, where you can sample kippers from the smokehouse at the base of the 199 steps up to the Abbey, then climb them for stunning views across the Esk Valley. Explore the Whitby Jet workshops and treat yourself to award-winning fish and chips at the famous Magpie Cafe. A little further afield you can find Scarborough with Sea World and the brand new £14million Water Park (opening Spring 2016), or catch a play at the renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre. You're an easy drive away from Flamingo Land, the Moorland village of Goathland (location for TV's Heartbeat), a steam train trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, or a day out ...
How to get there
The easiest way to travel to Staithes is by car. From the north, approach the village via Teesside on the A1/A19 and A174 or from the south on the A64/A169 via Whitby and then along the coast on the A174. Travel via train is also possible and there are mainline stations at Whitby (10 miles from Staithes) and Saltburn (9 miles) and a good Arriva bus service between Middlesbrough and Whitby. There is no parking permitted in the old village, but loading and unloading is allowed for up to 40 minutes. Cars are then parked in the council car park at the top of the village. In the winter, this car park is free. For the summer months, we provide a free parking permit. Additional cars can park daily in the same car park for £5 for a 24 hour period. Tickets for longer stays may be purchased at the Tourist Information Office.
