Things to do

Untouched by time, Staithes is a charming fishing village, with recent finds dating a settlement there all the way back to the Bronze Age.

The cobbled streets and traditional shops create a quaint atmosphere. There is a choice of two local pubs a very short distance from the cottages, both serve meals, and both allow dogs. There is a local craft centre which is open in the summer months and a choice of cafes.

The Captain Cook and Staithes Museum will give a small insight into the rich history of the area.

The harbour and beach offer amazing views and great opportunities for fishing, surfing, fossil hunting, and crabbing. The art gallery and craft centre (in season) are well worth a look around. And of course, for the artists and photographers among you it is the ideal spot to paint or take that “perfect” picture.

Whitby offers a day out in itself, giving you the chance to take in the history and Goathland takes you right into the moors, with the sheep still roaming the street.

The famous steam railway is highly recommended so why not take the train to Pickering or Whitby.

Thornton le Dale is a chocolate box village with thatched cottages and is extremely popular with walkers. Robin Hood’s Bay, Sandsend, Redcar, Saltburn and Runswick Bay are all only a few miles away.

Leaflets and details of the local attractions and eateries are in the cottages ready for you, feel free to read them but please leave them for the next visitors.
