Vista Marina is a luxury, two-bedroom cottage, newly refurbished and decorated, located in the small hamlet of Cowbar, close to the picturesque fishing village of Staithes in the North York Moors National Park. Providing superb accommodation, this cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners with great attention to detail and includes a private enclosed garden with a lovely summer house.

Vista Marina is a beautiful cottage in an ideal location overlooking the sea, warm cosy, a well worth visit to the Cod and Lobster pub in Staithes located down a Steep track ( good food ) the summerhouse contained a set of ladders !! and that was all shame as it could be made very inviting, There is a notice advising clients to bag their rubbish and place outside the back door between 8 and 8

15am on Friday, we noticed all previous clients rubbish not bagged was put in the outside bin which we had to place in bags, not a pleasant job, but this was the only issue we had. We would definitely go back, wonderful. Thankyou.

STAITHES

Vista Marina is located in the village of Cowbar a short 3 minute walk from Staithes. 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 quaint cobbled streets lead you to lovely shops including a traditional butchers, general stores, gift emporium, tea rooms and of course, art galleries. At the top of the village is a Co-op which is well-stocked. 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. There are two inns in the village including the famous Cod and Lobster on the harbour-side. 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. With a strong attraction for artists, Staithes hosts an annual Art and Heritage Festival plus there's 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.

The boiler broke leaving us without hot water 3 times

The communication from yourselves and sykes was very poor. On multiple occassions no-one called me back to let me know what was happening with the boiler. I am still waiting for a promised callback after 3rd breakdown a number of days ago. Extremely disappointed and frustrated with the holiday. One failure is understandable, a second is annoying and a third is unacceptable. On beach holiday with 2 children, to get home 3 times and find no hot water is beyond annoying. Looking to book next years holiday by end of September, presently unlikely to consider Sykes.

We have just stayed at the stunning Vista Marina near Staithes, an absolutely beautiful cottage, renovated to perfection with sea views and a lovely homely feel. It had everything we wanted or needed, all the comforts of home. The cottage has been decorated impeccably while still keeping the cottage feel. Already booked again! Fantastic!
