Originally a fisherman’s house built in the 1750s, this cottage is chock full of the original character and features, with rafters, beams and wonky walls. The wooden staircases wind through the building and up to the huge attic room, a great place to watch the television, play games and simply relax. Just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful harbor, it is tucked away up one of the many narrow ginnels. The wood burner ensures a cozy stay as well – perfect after a bracing cliff top walk!

Crab Cottage (with rare courtyard)
Situated on the hilltop of Cowbar Nab, here you can enjoy an obstructed view of the beautiful scenery overlooking the village and landscapes. You will be able to catch the sunlight for much longer than those living down in the village as well! The cottage has a light airy feel, but the wood burner and storage heaters keep it snug in the winter. Down some steps, there is a small lawn garden. There is a special kind of ambiance that surrounds this cottage. Perhaps it is the glorious setting looking out towards the Beck, or the warm character of that this immaculately restored property exudes. The cottage offers accommodation for up to six people and is perfectly positioned for exploring the beautiful coast and country of North Yorkshire. Guests can look forward to luxurious Scandinavian-inspired wooden clad showers and lovely sunrays here!

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!
