    “We absolutely loved our stay at Swallow Cottage.”

    We wanted somewhere quiet for NYE as our dog is extremely frightened of fireworks. This location was ideal. So peaceful. Lucky enough to see Barn Owls flying during the day. Swallow Cottage is ideally placed for trips to Staithes, Runswick Bay and Saltburn. It was lovely to meet Paul, the owner, who was around if needed. Thanks for the bottle of wine by the way. Hoping to book again later in the year if our plans work out. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Staithes in North Yorkshire, is this idyllic studio-style cottage, Swallow Cottage.

Enjoying a superb and rural location within the North York Moors National Park, with easy access to the local amenities and coast, Swallow Cottage is a fabulous dog-friendly base for a couple and their two canine companions.

Leave your vehicle on the driveway, before making your way into your new holiday home.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to impressing your other half with delicious meals, whipped up in the kitchenette, ready to enjoy over a celebratory bottle of fizz at the dining table for two.

After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa and select a much-loved film from the Smart TV as the evening’s entertainment.

After a day of hiking through the moors, wash away the day with a refreshing shower, before climbing into the sumptuous double bed to catch your rest.

In the morning, prepare a steaming cup of coffee ready to enjoy out in the front garden as you plan the days itinerary with a backdrop of beautiful rural views.

Take the short drive into the village centre, where you can sample fresh and local seafood at the Whitby Crab and Cod & Lobster or traditional pub grub at The Fox & Hounds, perfect for those evenings when you don’t fancy cooking!

There is also a well-stocked convenience store for picking up any essentials.

You can also enjoy leisurely strolls along the Staithes Beck or delving into history at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre.

Take advantage of having the North York Moors right on your doorstep and embark on wildlife rich hikes, visit Mulgrave Castle or tackle the imposing peaks of Ingleby Incline and The Wainstones.

Continue onto Whitby, home to a remarkable Gothic cathedral, an excellent golf club, the 199 Steps where you can expect panoramic views at their top, and the golden sands of Whitby Beach, where you can bathe, paddle the shores or hook your catch of the day along the West Pier.

For more seaside fun, follow the Cinder Track over to Scarborough, where you will find the delights of Scarborough Castle, Alpamare, and the Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

Whisk the one who means most away for a memorable stay at Swallow Cottage.

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.
