A coastal retreat within Staithes, where you can smell the fresh sea air and uncover the most spectacular scenery, a cosy cottage great for friends and family.

Situated amongst the narrow, cobbled streets of fishing village Staithes in the north-eastern corner of the North York Moors National Park, this gorgeous home is perfect for families or groups of friends. With the rugged coastline and heather-clad moors on your doorstep, this property really does offer the best of coast of country. Brimming with charm and character, the village clings to the hillside and is situated on the Cleveland Way, so cliff-top walks with unbridled views are plentiful. Unlike its busier counterparts, Staithes is quieter and offers guests a coastal hideaway in which to relax. Staithes also has links with one of the most famous sea-farers in history, Captain Cook, and you can find out more about him in the Heritage Centre Museum. The cottage is located next to a small, sheltered harbour; at low tide, a small sandy beach and a rocky sea bed are revealed, which kids both young and old will enjoy exploring. The village is home to a few eateries with, as you’d expect, plenty of seafood on offer. The equally delightful and charming village of Runswick Bay is also worth a visit, which is 3 miles south of Staithes.

 

As a Grade II listed property, this traditional stone cottage is brimming with original features and charm, but it has been sympathetically renovated to suit modern guests. White walls create a light and airy feel throughout, allowing the exposed beams and original built-in cupboards to blend in, whilst accents of warm wood make it feel warm and homely.

 

As you enter on the ground floor, you’ll find yourself in a delightful hall, complete with fireplace and seating, where you can discard muddy boots and coats. You then move through into the bright open-plan kitchen/diner. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cater for you and your guests, whilst the dining area provides plenty of seating for everyone to dine together. From here, a set of stairs takes you down into the cosy, yet spacious, lounge on the lower-ground floor. This is the perfect place to gather round of an evening to socialise, play games or watch TV together.

 

Upstairs, on the first floor, there are two beautifully-presented bedrooms: one double and one bunk bed. Both are decorated in cool tones to add a sense of light and calm. There is also a family bathroom on this floor, with a shower over the bath. Ascending another flight of stairs brings you to the delightful, king-size, master bedroom on the second floor, complete with en-suite shower room and sea-views.

 

There is a small enclosed backyard and a bench outside the front door, but no other outside space. Luggage can be unloaded at the front door, but cars must be parked in one of the public or private car parks at the top of the old village.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 bedrooms - 1 king-size, 1 double and 1 bunk bedroom
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC and 1 en-suite shower room with WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and 2 fridges
  • Parking in the public car park, subject to availability
  • Beach, shop and pubs within walking distance

Staithes is an interesting village with plenty on offer in the village itself and the immediate surrounding area. Waverly House is compact accommodation for four adults but it has everything you need and is a warm, charming and snug house for a short autumn/winter break.

What an excellent location! If you can put up with noisy seagulls all night, however you get used to this. The cottage was beautiful and had plenty of room for a family.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
