Located on the Yorkshire coast and a short drive from the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Staithes is a beautiful old fishing village which combines picturesque looks, dramatic cliff walks, welcoming pubs and much more. The coast is studded with beaches and similarly appealing harbours, while the Moors are full of appeal, from discovering the Brontë sisters to tracing Dracula's story at Whitby Abbey. And with Staithes holiday cottages you can see it all.
Staithes is a few miles north of Whitby and was once one of the English east coast's busiest fishing ports. Nowadays, it's much sleepier, but the stone architecture of the town's boom era remains. Glorious stories can be explored at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre which remembers a famous local son. You can munch on boutique sweets and gourmet pizzas, while small local galleries offer paintings of the photogenic coast. They could be the ideal souvenir to take back from Staithes holiday cottages.
While you could easily spend a week within a mile or two of Staithes accommodation, the wider region offers a massive array of activities to discover. For instance, there are 120 miles of cliff paths along the Yorkshire coast, as well as appealing beaches at Robin Hood's Bay, Saltburn and Filey. The Moors offers endless hiking and dog walking routes, as well as kids adventure parks like Go Ape. There are excellent climbing locations in Scugdale, as well as 500 miles of bridleways and horse riding centres where you can saddle up. And the historical attractions of York are less than an hour away from Staithes accommodation as well.
Whether you're planning a cliff-walking adventure or a vacation on the Moors, Staithes holiday cottages will be the perfect place to stay. You can accommodate groups of friends and hop between pubs and beaches with ease. Kids can sleep and relax comfortably after long days of recreational fun, and there will be space for dogs to enjoy their stays as well. It all adds up to enjoyable accommodation in an outstanding Yorkshire destination.
