10. Beautiful cottage

Situated on the hilltop of Cowbar Nab, here you can enjoy an obstructed view of the beautiful scenery overlooking the village and landscapes.

Immerse in the beauty of Staithes

Did you know? Staithes is a designated conservation village due to its unique character and charm - the narrow cobbled streets and tucked-away alleyways that are steeped in history; with tales of smuggling and the bohemian art community known as the Staithes Group. Inspired by the local scenery, the Staithes Group painted in and around the village in the late 19th century. Their legacy continues in the annual Staithes Arts Festival, held over an autumn weekend, when homes and shops are converted into art galleries and pop-up cafes welcoming visitors. The beauty of Staithes is indeed an eye-opener for most!
