This beautifully renovated former fisherman’s cottage, dating back to the 1820s, lies in the heart of the historical coastal village of Staithes, tucked away on the Yorkshire Coast on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, making it the perfect coast and country retreat.
Although relatively small, this delightful property stretches over three floors and has been developed to an exceptional standard with everything you could need in a holiday cottage, from a Smart TV to Wi-Fi throughout. The bedrooms, each with their own en-suite facilities, are on the top and bottom floors, whilst an open plan living area and well-equipped kitchen lie in the middle.
The local shops, pubs and restaurants are just a stone’s throw away, as is the beautiful beach and
cove that would once have been the haunt of pirates and smugglers. The explorer Captain James Cook has strong ties to the village and served his apprenticeship here before heading off to find new, exotic places across the globe including Australia and New Zealand.
The scene of many TV programmes including the children’s hit series ‘Old Jack’s Boat’, Staithes is ideally located for exploring further along the Cleveland Way National Trail and the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. Its hidden gems such as Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay make it an artist’s paradise. Look closely at Runswick and you will see the outline of the dragon’s head at the furthest point.
The bustling fishing town of Whitby is just a short drive away and is home to many festivals and events throughout the year, including a regatta and the famous Goth Weekend to name just two. From here you can take an open top bus tour of the town, or sail out to sea on one of the many excursion boats from the harbour. The famous Whitby Abbey was the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s novel ‘Dracula’. Climb the 199 steps to the abbey and church to experience a fantastic view of the town.
Further along the coast is the traditional Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough, or head inland to take in the natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park. You can even take a steam train ride right into the centre of the national park, or pay a visit to Goathland, which was made famous by the TV show ‘Heartbeat’.
The North York Moors National Park is also home to miles and miles of tracks and trails for lovers of the great outdoors. Beach 200 yards. Shop 75 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
