The property

Resting at the heart of the beautiful seaside village of Staithes on the North Yorkshire Coast is Bethel Chapel.

This unique and bright chapel conversion sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms, making it the perfect location for friends or the whole family to getaway to the coast.

Bethel Chapel is set in the centre of Staithes which is handy after a day exploring the ginnels and cobbled streets the village has to offer.

Enter into your home-away-from-home where a spacious and airy open-plan living space welcomes you; settle on the sofa as the woodburning stove warms the room, which is wonderful after a day spent in the brisk sea air.

Relax here or travel to the first floor sitting area which boasts a large TV, ideal for family film nights or catching up on your favourite box sets.

From this spot you can marvel over the railing as the designated chef of the group cooks up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen which you can later enjoy together as a group or family at the large dining table.

Wander around the galleried area taking the property’s collection of beautiful paintings and sculptures many by local artists.

As the evening draws to a close, pick out your bedroom from either the two ground-floor doubles or the two first floor double rooms, all are furnished with plenty of storage to house your belongings but the latter have en-suite facilities that are great for washing away the day’s adventures.

Recharge your batteries in any of these rooms ready for another day of exploration in North Yorkshire.

Bethel Chapel is set in Staithes which is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning views.

It is also home to the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre, where you can learn about the history of the area.

There are plenty of restaurants and bars to walk to on the nights you don’t fancy cooking, including the Cod and Lobster and Restaurant Number 20, and if you fancy a coffee or cake, the Barn Owl Cafe is the perfect spot.

This unique property is located just a stone’s throw away from Whitby, a historic fishing town located on the North East coast of England.

It is home to the iconic Whitby Abbey and 199 Steps, as well as the Whalebone Arch and Whitby Museum.

Whitby is also well known for its restaurants and bars, including Trenchers, The Fisherman's Wife Whitby, and Quayside, making it the perfect spot for a day out.

Or venture slightly further to the city of Middlesbrough and enjoy a picnic in its famous Albert Park.

Bethel Chapel is ideally situated for a memorable trip to the Staithes on the North Yorkshire Coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location

STAITHES

Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
