    “While we found our stay was pleasant and the presentation of the cottage excellent we could have done with more guidance on how to find it, down an obscure and twisty alleyway.”

    We had to call the owners agent. A simple picture or sketch of the alleyway entrance would helped. It was unfortunate that the toaster, as reported by the previous users, havinf regularly blown the main fuse, was no fixed in the period we were there. Although Keith did come and try to set up the TV we were not able to get the normal programmes and finally had to resort to watching DVDs. Your recommendation to arrange parking at Glenvale was very welcome.

    So sorry you had a couple of issues during your stay and hope they didn’t detract from a lovely stay, in such a picturesque village. We pride ourselves on our lovely little cottage and want our guests to love it too. It is tucked away just off the High Street and very private but Mandy or Keith (Agents)are always there to help with directions if Sykes directions may not be clear to you. We will take a photo of the alleyway entrance to add to our listing, for future guests. Thank you for pointing this out. Apparently, after speaking to Keith, he came within a few minutes to show you how the lounge TV works. There are instructions both in our guest folder in the kitchen and also a manufacturer’s guide in the TV unit. There is also a TV in the kitchen, whilst not ideal, could be viewed instead of having to watch DVD’s. Sorry for the toaster issue but Keith said he called within a couple of days to locate the spare one for you and you said you were happy to use the grill for toast. Glad you found Glenvale Car Park useful. We always use it when we visit as there can be parking issues elsewhere during peak times. Kind regards. Property Owner

The property

Homely cottage built during the mid-19th century and situated in the village of Staithes in Yorkshire.

Located in the village centre, and with its warm pine furnishings located throughout, the one bedroom property is perfect for couples looking for a relaxing weekend around the North York Moors National Park.

The entrance to the cottage is via an alleyway off the High Street, and guests will find that they won’t have to go far into the property to prepare a meal or take a break with a cup of tea, as the first room you see is the kitchen/diner.

On the next floor is the sitting room, where holidaymakers can relax in one of the comfortable armchairs and watch TV or a DVD.

Alternatively, there are plenty of good books to choose from.

Also on the first floor is the shower room, which features a walk-in shower and heated towel rail.

The property’s sole bedroom is located on the second floor, and guests are guaranteed a good night’s sleep in the double bed, with views over Cowbar Nabb.

Guests are advised that a well-behaved dog is welcome.

The Old Cottage is perfectly positioned within the local area, with a short walk to the busy village centre’s pubs, shops and restaurants.

While guests only have to walk a few steps to take in the view of the bridge and Roxby Beck.

The picturesque harbour and beach are also a short distance away.

Fans of the countryside won’t have to go far to experience beautiful scenery and the many fabulous activities as the property is within the North York Moors National Park.

The area has so much worth exploring, and many myths and legends that have helped shape what it is today.

Why not take a walk with giants in East Barnby, or why not visit Beggars Bridge in Glaisdale?

Both of which have fascinating stories behind them.

Alternatively, why not bask in the stunning surroundings by climbing on board the train along the Esk River or North Yorkshire Moors Railway?

The Old Cottage combines comfortable living and a gateway to adventure, making it a great spot to enjoy a break in Staithes.

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.
