Property Details

The Space
This newly refurbished two storey house is a gorgeous little getaway by the sea.

Access to the property is through a traditional walkway lined with crab pots, instantly giving you that wonderful fisherman’s village experience.

On entering the property you are presented with a small entrance hall, synonymous with fisherman houses. To the right you have the cosy living area. This space features deep teal sofas, a traditional open fire and hard wood floors. Overhead you have the original beams and a decorative chandelier. Enjoy an evening in front of the tv or make plans for your day ahead in these gorgeous, characteristic surroundings.

To the left of the front door is the beautiful and bright kitchen and dining area. The traditional style, bold blue doors and Belfast sink brings a real sense of charm to the room. Fully equipped with everything you should need for a short break you can cook up a feast in here or enjoy some local produce from Betsy & Bo. The round wooden dining table seats four people comfortably with farmhouse style chairs and blue striped cushions.

The downstairs is a bright space flooded with light from the large sash windows.

Back through the living area to the rear of the property you will find the bathroom. This is a modern style wet room fitted with an electric shower, WC and basin. Small grey tiles cover the walls and floor, the room is finished off with a wall hung mirrored cabinet and chrome heated towel rail.

Take the stairs to the first floor where you have the two bedrooms. The first room features white walls and original white wood panelling. The double bed features a stone coloured headboard and is dressed with crisp white linen and blue patterned cushions and matching throw. The original fireplace brings charm to the space while the bed side tables and matching blue velvet lamps bring a sense of simplicity.

The second bedroom features two single beds and has a nautical theme to it. The beds are dressed with a bold red throw and a striped cushion while the bedside lamps feature octopus and tangled tentacles. This bright and airy space is the perfect retreat after a busy day by the coast.

Not the best Air BnB we’ve ever stayed in- house felt quite unloved and not homely at all which was a shame. Needs some TLC- lots of stains on walls, stain on blankets, dusty, holes that need filling in bathroom, missing pieces in all games. It was cold on arrival and no firewood available to start a fire, all local shops shut so unable to buy any, would have been nice for a few to be left or heating to be set to come on for arrival- this would be easy as it had smart thermostat. Loud noise started between 7:30-8am over the weekend right outside due to fisherman fixing crab nets so no lay in unfortunately. It’s also the only place we have had to pay extra after booking for insurance so beware of this extra cost. Parking and dropping off bags was really difficult.<br/>Despite the above, it’s in a great location right near the beach and good pubs. Bed was super comfy and they left extras for us such as tea, coffee, milk and toiletries which was nice. <br/>All in all probably wouldn’t recommend.



Cottage was lovely and cosy and well placed for access to all amenities in Staithes.<br/><br/>Nothing



Nothing<br/><br/>Absolutely disgusting filthy dirty







Great cottage in a central location right by the sea and local pub which served good food<br/><br/>Nothing not to like



This is a very cosy cottage in a wonderful location. Right near the beach/harbour and everything you need. We were 4 adults and 3 dogs and was a bit of a squeeze but we were out most of the day anyway. Great walks and pubs nearby.



Great location close to the harbour, the narrow street to the cottage is opposite the side entrance to the Cod and Lobster, slightly to the left. There is an excellent kitchen - everything you could need- all clean and well presented. Beds were comfy, good shower, appreciated the under floor heating in bathroom, plenty of hot water. There were 3 of us, all adults and we were cosy and comfortable in the property. Will definitely stay again!<br/><br/>Nothing to dislike, a couple of suggestions: it would be helpful to have some kindling for the open fire, especially for people arriving later in the evening, and it would be helpful to have the location of the switch for the water heater, and the exact location of the cottage (opposite the pub) noted in the otherwise really helpful online guide.





a lovely stay and well hosted. thanks!



Great location lovely cottage<br/><br/>Nothing



Charming cottage in great location in Staithes. We had a lovely time although wouldn’t stat at another airB&B serviced by Host and Stay out of choice. Lack of instructions although paid an extra £25 (rather than a large deposit and £10 admin fee) for insurance as a hidden extra cost which I’ve not experienced before.



The cottage is absolutely beautiful so well considered comfortable and stylish. The kitchen is really well stocked with all of the equipment you could need and modern appliances. Located in a fabulous place close to the beach. Unfortunately it was absolutely freezing on arrival, we have stayed in Staithes many many times and have benefitted from some complimentary logs left as we arrived on a Sunday check in is pretty late….. so it would have been lovely to have been left a couple of logs given how late check in is…. We know heating is a challenge in Staithes however with the ttechnology available it is possible to work around. also very difficult to open key box took over and hour, didn’t find hot water switch until the next day. We were locked out accidentally which was well responded to but we were then charged an absolute fortune to have the door opened by someone very local!! Would definitely stay again but in warmer months not for older people or young babies at this time of yr



Great location in a beautiful village 25m from a pub! It's small but more than adequate for a few days stay.<br/>However the listing says there is free parking on premises. There isn't but there is parking close by for 40 minutes but you then need to park a 7/8 minute walk away up a steep hill. This is free in January and February though.



The games selection was excellent<br/><br/>The door handle from living room to stairs was broken



All good, many thanks!



Location<br/><br/>Wasn't clean quite dusty, living room struggled to get to a reasonable temperature,TV way too small,and the bathroom was full of mouldy stained not a big fan of the whole wet room idea.



Nothing really for the host but we got hit with a £60 parking fine on our first night because we bought a ticket for the public car park and was fined because we were on the adjoining private one. In the dark and pouring rain the signs are not enough. We won't be returning to this place it made the whole trip a lot more expensive and left a sour note. A warning about this issue could be put in the cottage details. I'm sure we are not the first.



The location was great and the village of Staithes was really beautiful.



A beautiful house with everything you need. Great space for a family. Nice and warm even though it was cold outside.



Fantastic cottage, we loved it. Staithes is beautiful



Traditional Cottage in a good location. Comfortable bed, warm and good shower.<br/><br/>The shower room tile grout is need of good clean. Damp in the shower room. Steep stairs. <br/>They charge an extra £10 for looking after your £250 deposit (Shocking). Which is not mentioned on or you have to pay £25 damage waiver. £6 or £10 for 24 hours parking.



Location is based next to the Cob & Lobster at the harbour. The 1 road/street is also close by, which offers the other places to drink or dine. It is a well maintained periodic house with all of todays facilities.<br/><br/>The staircase carpet, which runs into both bedrooms is rather rough to walk on bare footed. Also the shower part of the downstairs toilet needs re-grouting.



A compact and nicely renovated cottage, good shower in wet room, good kitchen diner, cosy sitting room, comfortable double bed. This cottage is situated behind Cod and Lobster in a shared passageway, you can park nearby for dropping off luggage. No parking nearby, car parks at top of village. We have been coming to Staithes for several years and love the village.



Upstairs was nice and cosy<br/><br/>The smell of damp from th front wall in kitchen which had been painted to conceal the mould



Location was excellent. House was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed.<br/><br/>Everything was fine



Quaint cottage.<br/>Good refurbishment with quality fixtures and fittings <br/>Quality equipment<br/>Comfortable<br/>Good quality bedding <br/>The supply of coffee, tea etc<br/>The supply of cleaning materials<br/><br/>The cottage felt a bit damp and needed airing<br/>Couldn't get the heater in the double bedroom working<br/>The alleyway leading to the cottage needed a good sweeping and there were 26 dustbins to contend with <br/>We had no hot water to begin with <br/>The bathroom tiles, although nicely done needed a good clean



Property clean, good amenities, excellent location.<br/><br/>The property was very good, but the experience with Host and Stay (the leasers) was terrible. Unlike every other property I have ever booked, from booking you are then subject to an email avalanche. The first tranche is an attempt to extract more money via a hefty damage deposit or waiver (which is not clear at booking). The payment system for this doesn’t work, and customer service is difficult to get hold of and, once you’ve got through, clearly an outsourced call centre. The deposit is mandatory so you don’t get any property details till you’ve paid. In my case I paid and was then told via one of their numerous emails that I hadn’t (so no check in / location info was provided). Cue numerous attempts to resolve the situation. Then there are numerous emails telling you to verify yourself. All in all, the whole booking experience was full of admin and very cumbersome - no other holiday rental I have ever experienced makes you go through this. I would never stay at a Host and Stay property again, which is a shame because the property itself was very good.






Lovely little cottage in great location in the heart of the village.





Die Unterkunft ist sehr hübsch eingerichtet & in der Küche gibt es alles, was man braucht. Das Haus ist sehr alt, klein und charmant. Das Bad ist für einen kurzen Aufenthalt ok, aber leider schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen.



Tastefully renovated little cottage that was warm, comfortable and very accommodating for families, in particular the availability of board games for rainy days.<br/><br/>Availability of parking proximal to the cottage. There’s a public car park 10 minutes away, however is a pain when it’s pouring down rain and blowing a gale.



Visited with my partner and our small dog. Lovely weekend, fantastic location so central. Everything we needed. Lovely size for us but could be a squeeze for 4 people! We would return again if we visit Staithes in the future!<br/><br/>Nothing everything was lovely



Sitting room could have more comfy seats and tv should be bigger



Very clean, beautifully refurbished and very cosy.<br/><br/>Small amount of fuel for fire for first evening.



The cottage is in a perfect location to get around Staithes. We had a great time. As per other reviews, it is a cosy cottage, so would not recommend for four adults or families with older children unless you are planning to be out and about a lot. There are just three of us and our daughter is still little, so it was perfect. Finally, be aware the road down to the cottage is a narrow and parking is charged at £10 for 24 hours.



Great little place to stay, all correspondence with the hosts was straightforward



Lovely little cottage in a great location



Nice cottage in an idylic spot. More attention to detail required for the cleaning. Biggest problem is the damage deposit required and the conditions attached. Had to put down a £250 damage deposit (fair enough) and pay a £10 admin fee!!! Baring in mind I had to personally log onto their site and then arrange payment from my bank it would seem that the admin fee is owed to me......<br/><br/>Biggest beef is that the host agency are not clear that the hold you deposit for 14 DAYS after your departure and then state it may take another 10 days for my bank to clear it. How on earth this is justifiable is beyond me.<br/><br/>Beware of hostandstay if you don't want them sitting on your deposit for weeks after you stay is over. Leaves a really bad taste.





A cosy cottage in a beautiful location with everything you need for a short break.



Lovely house in a wonderful location



Gorgeous house in Staithes. Highly recommend for a weekend break. Great walks. Whitby close by. Local pubs and chip shops all excellent. Thank you ?



beautiful cozy cottage perfect for a couple or family with young children<br/><br/>it was very cold on arrival and took a good 12 hours to warm up. <br/>Cobwebs in bathroom and kitchen - needed a more thorough clean



Our second time in Staithes, we love how friendly everyone is, the great beach and others nearby, love the Cod and Lobster pub, little shops and cafes. A perfect village for a long weekend.<br/>Gun Gutter House was incredibly small and we would not stay in this accommodation again, even though the location was 10/10.<br/>It does technically sleep 4 people as advertised, but it’s not suitable for 4. The kitchen is perfect but I wouldn’t advise you stay here if you would all like to relax together in the living room of an evening - it is not big enough for this at all. <br/>We arrived at around 6pm and the heating had not been put on for our arrival and so the house was ice cold - we could see our own breath it was so cold. Even after putting the heaters on it did not warm up for 24 hours meaning an incredibly uncomfortably cold first night for us, our children and dog. <br/>We also could not light a fire to provide warmth until the second day as there was no kindling provided.



This cottage is in an amazing location. We even took our morning cuppa down to the sea front as it was a 30 second walk. It was lovely to be there before all the other tourists arrived, as it was so peaceful and relaxing.<br/><br/>The cottage is well equipped with everything you can think of in the kitchen cupboards! However for the price we paid we did expect a slightly higher standard of cottage. It was cute and unique, however a bit tired in areas and needed a refresh. It didn’t feel fresh. Perhaps a deep clean and paint in areas. <br/><br/>If you are wanting location this is your place!



Great location. Nice little place. Great open fire that kicks out a lot of heat.



it’s location and kitchen<br/><br/>the sofas were not very comfortable



Perfect location <br/>Cosy<br/>Lots of games and dvds if the evening is wet and windy<br/>I stayed with my two boys and we loved our stay



There was a wire basket in the shower fixed to the wall which was very rusty, we couldn’t get the underfloor heating to work in the bathroom. There was no phone signal in the property to make phone calls .



Great location. Lovely little cottage.



The house was lovely and cozy and very clean. In a good position for the pub too. We had a problem of not being able to open the back door that was at the bottom of the stairs, which I reported, but just got an email saying hope it didn’t spoil our stay. I was quite anxious in case we needed to get out. I also thought was a bit expensive.



A super little cottage. Great open fire. Great location.



Lovely property, small but perfectly formed, highly recommend for a cosy weekend!



Quaint cottage. Great location. Communication with host was good. Car park close by. Comfortable beds and living area.<br/><br/>Unfortunately, the cottage had a terrible smell. Could not work out if it was gloss paint or paraffin. This impacted on the amount of time that we could spend in the cottage.



Lovely little cottage, amazing support staff





amazing place right by the harbour - friendly locals - beautiful little home - perfect for a weekend get away or longer



Lovely little cottage, nicely proportioned. Great location near the pub and beach. <br/><br/>Good comms.<br/><br/>Also really made us feel welcome to bring our dog. Some places say they are dog friendly and then make it feel like fort knox with the dos and donts. Here they are very accommodating and realistic. <br/><br/>We’ll definitely be back.



Great location, in Staithes amongst the narrow lanes and snickets and ginnels. Like a Doll's House and pefect for the two of us. Underfloor heating in the shower/wet room was a luxury and in a very sunny week, in the high 20s each day the house was comfortably cool. Kitchen was very well equipped - get yourself fit for the Le Creuset stewing pot! Nice little nespresso coffee machine and a cafetiere too.<br/><br/>Best settee was not aligned for the TV - a minor inconvenience - but for what TV we did watch, having Netflix/Prime options as well as basic Sky was good. Parking for unloading/loading was very tricky but the charm of Staithes is it's inaccessibility and we left the car in the top car park for £10/night and then didn't use it all week.



A really great property in many ways, good location, great facilities, comfortable bed. Great place to stay. <br/><br/>One big issue for us - we arrived and found the toilet seat completely unattached and unable to be sat on - as you can imagine, very difficult and we had to use a local pub for certain toilet needs…!! Whilst Host and Stay did send maintenance swiftly the next day (thank you, genuinely), we had a toilet we could not sit on for almost 50% of our stay. I have asked for a partial refund and am currently being offered £32 after paying £400 for the booking. I find this quite insulting, a fully useable toilet is crucial to hygiene needs. Host and Stay could have avoided this entirely by carrying out proper checks on the property before our arrival. First time I’ve had an issue with an Airbnb booking, so a bit disappointed.



Lovely cottage, good base for visiting other area's, there was everything we needed, right in the heart of the village. The property was very cool downstairs, which was great as the weather was so hot.<br/><br/>I felt the cleanliness could have been better, the oven was dirty/greasy and the tiles in the shower were mouldy in parts, it didn't spoil the holiday, but for the price, we expected better. Fans would be a good addition for the bedrooms,



Lovely place very central and comfortable





Beautiful harbour side hideaway. Just be prepared for a lot of walking up and down the hill!



Excellent location in the heart of Staithes, very close to the beach and the pub. Lovely and quiet with a very comfy bed and brand new kitchen. The toilet was leaking during our stay which was a shame but hopefully that will be rectified soon. Our first time in Staithes, we had arranged private parking but it was still a good walk up the hill. Excellent ice cream and pizza shop in the village called Cobbles, well worth a visit!



Great house, fabulous location very near to the beach. A quaint but perfectly formed little house known locally as “The Dolls House”. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was bliss, kitchen is extremely well equipped for all needs. Would recommend. Thank you.





Very well equipped cottage. Great location in the old village and we really enjoyed our stay. Only negatives were the cottage was very cold on arrival and took a little while to warm up. Not much cupboard space in kitchen to store food.



Nice, well equipped cottage in a quiet location.



Location and facilities and the open fire.



Super location, lovely place and great service - highly recommended!

My experience was overall 5 star rating the property was lovely and clean , kitchen had everything you needed , lovely open fire , games and DVD’s for the kid’s for the nights i would definitely recommend it amd would stay again lisa



We really enjoyed our stay at Gun Gutter house. It is quite small but It was absolutely spotless, well equipped a minutes walk to the pub The Cod and Lobster and the seafront. The fire made it so cosy and warm. We had an issue with the lock on the front door on our last night which was resolved quickly and efficiently by the really friendly maintenance team. We will definitely be returning.



The log fire was wonderful on the chilly evenings, the location was fantastic.<br/><br/>The shower room was extremely cold and water temperature goes cold very quickly.



We absolutely loved our stay at Gun Gutter House. The place is very well modernised, very clean and warm. We have stayed at many properties in Staithes and this is one of the best. It is a little smaller than expected but it is a lovely place with every you could need. The location is so close to the Cod & Lobster and the beach. We couldn’t recommend this property enough. We loved it.



Fantastic location, close to the beach and local eateries. Beautiful little fishing village with lots of amazing walks.<br/>Very clean and cosy, well equipped kitchen. Dog friendly and blankets provided for comfort. Note car parking has increased to £10 a day.



Excellent location<br/><br/>A little smaller than expected



Lovely cottage brilliantly located in Staithes. Great for a weekend away or longer.



Cute little house for a long weekend in Staithes - all rooms are small but very functional and in a great spot; 5 seconds from the pub and the harbour.



the decor was lovely- very modern and clean. the beds were very comfy<br/><br/>it was quite cold when we first arrived and took a while to warm up because there is not central heating



We enjoyed our stay in Gun Gutter House. The house was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location - less than a minute's walk to the Cod and Lobster - was great and the bed in the main bedroom was comfortable, if a little small. <br/>The property does have two bedrooms but from a size perspective I think that with four people it would have felt cramped - it was just about right for the two of us. <br/>We had a great time in Staithes - lovely pub, beautiful walking along the cliffs towards Runswick Bay. Thanks for having us....



Staithes is a hidden gem and well work visiting. The property is brilliantly located and as described. Be aware that car parking is at the top of the hill, out of season the small council car park is free, otherwise it is £10 for 24 hours. Loading is permitted near the property, but spaces are limited.



A cosy little cottage in a great location right in the heart of Staithes. It was warm and well kitted out, and we really enjoyed our stay.



Amazing location. Loved the cosy fire in an evening. Nice and clean.<br/><br/>There is a problem with the electrics. The power goes off each time you switch on the shower. There is damp in a number of rooms. The toaster didn’t work. Lots of great dvds but no DVD player.



the location is great, gun gutter is a quiet area but close to the harbour and the pub. the property is well equipped with just about everything. the kitchen is modern and well stocked. the tv has sky and Netflix and access to other on demand tv very easily.<br/><br/>if you have the shower on the high setting the electrics trip out. <br/><br/>the electric wall heater in the lounge and main bedroom isn’t easy to fathom and could benefit from some clear instructions.





We have enjoyed our stay, the accommodation was as expected and in a superb location. Excellent modern kitchen with good quality fittings. High quality home accessories, ie plates and cutlery etc. Very accommodating for our dog. Overall a great stay and would visit again.



We had a lovely time in the cottage, which was very cute and in a great location.



30 second walk to The Cod and Lobster, 60 seconds to the beach! Cottage is very small but perfectly formed for a short break. Great for a couple or for 2 couples if you are well acquainted and using the cottage as a base to explore Staithesand the surrounding area. Beds are super comfy and kitchen well equipped. Bathroom needs some tlc but is perfectly functional.





Great location. Lovely kitchen with everything you could need. Cosy cottage. Clean. Great use of space considering size of cottage.<br/><br/>The bathroom needed some work. Had to be very quick in the shower as the wet room started to fill to a worrying level. 50% of the time the shower fused the electrics. I find it hard to believe that this only started to occur during our stay.



Small cottage , very close to sea and pub . Very cosy, bit smaller than photos make it look ! But everything you need! Staithes beautiful place



Good location, comfy beds, kitchen reasonably new<br/><br/>Wet room drain blocked on arrival , as was the hand basin in the wet room. There was dampness on the walls in the living room, and the bedroom in particular, and the paint was peeling off the walls in those areas. The heating radiators instructions in all rooms weren`t clear, and the controls were either broken or locked out, so you couldn`t alter them. The house was cold, which possibly contributed to the damp feeling throughout the house. Handles on all doors throughout the property were possibly original and hanging off the doors. We were actually locked out of the stairs at one point because of this.



Nice little cottage in a brilliant location. Ideal for short breaks for small families.



excellent location, small but well equipped cottage in great location. very clean and tidy, great stay!



Immaculately clean, very charming and comfortable cottage, in a great location - close to the beach and to the excellent Cod and Lobster pub/restaurant.



Characterful property full of history and rustic charm right in the middle of the village, steps away from harbour, pub and amenities. Property was well equipped but fairly small. This was fine for us as a couple but feel it would be too cramped to accommodate any more adults. <br/> <br/>Access to property is down a narrow alleyway. Vehicle can be unloaded by the Cod and Lobster (limited waiting time) and parking is up at the public car park.<br/><br/>Nothing



My friends and I had the loveliest stay here, the cottage was so gorgeous and right in the heart of Staithes, very accessible to everything and was so clean upon arrival, thank you so much!x



This is a beautifully appointed cottage in the heart of the village, perfect for accessing all Staithes has to offer but tucked away up a quiet street so you aren't disturbed by many passers by. The cottage is well equipped -the kitchen especially and the table comfortably seats 4 so eating in is easy. Beds are really comfortable with fantastic high quality linen. It was really nice to have plenty of towels provided as well -even though we were only there for a couple of days.<br/>The only down side is that while the living room is beautifully furnished it is small and as a family of 4 we weren't able to comfortably watch TV together -not a problem on a short stay but for a longer holiday there isn't much room. Probably not such an issue if your children are small though. <br/>The hosts were really helpful and really quick to answer any questions.

Had a lovely stay in the cottage. Some lovely homely touches to help make the stay nice. Overall very good

Lindsay M., Wakefield


Such a lovely cottage, easy to find right next to the nice pub & close to the beach, the cottage is nicely decorated, lovely bathroom & fab kitchen with everything you need including a dishwasher, the owners were very informative and friendly, staithes is such a pretty place & not too far from Whitby & robin hoods bay, will definitely recommend to family & friends



Beautiful little cottage in the heart of Staithes, just moments from the Cod & Lobster pub and the harbour. The team at Stay were extremely prompt and responsive when an issue was discovered over the weekend, and dealt with it quickly and professionally.



This is a great cottage, superbly located close to the harbour and with lovely touches in a homely and welcoming environment. The Stay staff were excellent throughout and kept in touch with us to make sure everything was fine. The extra cleaning made everyone feel safe and the little touches around the cottage helped make our short break even more enjoyable.



A beautiful cottage in a great location with comfortable modern facilities without losing its character. <br/><br/>The cottage was clean and presented beautifully. Perfect position close to the harbour and the fantastic Cod and Lobster



Gorgeous cosy cottage in an incredible location. We loved the open fire! Staithes is so so beautiful, and we can’t wait to return.



Lovely home, brilliant location very clean.



Only a few steps from the beach.<br/>Location was great for us.



Gun Gutter House is a beautifully appointed cosy cottage. The space is very stylish, with a fantastic open fire, everything you could need in the kitchen and a large bathroom. The main bed is wonderfully comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. The location is literally a stone‘S throw from the very picturesque harbour and the local pub is at the end of the street. There are great little coffee shops in the village and lovely coastal walks straight from the front door. We had a couple of queries during our stay and communication with the host was very prompt, very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again.



Lovely stay. Lovely location. Would come back again.

Sarah C.


We had a fabulous stay at Gun Gutter House....a beautiful seaside cottage just as we hoped. Excellent location and wonderfully equipped!



A great little cottage in a lovely location, very close to the harbour side,tucked away in one of the many little alleyways in staithes. We had a lovely stay, communication was very good, cottage very clean and comfortable.



Great place! The location is perfect to enjoy this beautiful little village.



This is everything you want from a cottage and more. It is in a tiny ally, that has a certain aroma at the entrance due to the bins of the pub but it is all good once you get to the front door of this authentic cottage. It is so near to the beach that when my wife wanted a coffee, I - yes, I! - could pop back and make her one with the ample supply of capsules provided. Bedding was super crisp and beds comfy. Loved our stay.

Tim J.


As good as it looks.



Great place. Slightly smaller than expected but cozy nonetheless. The bed was quite comfortable. Has all the amenities you need. Need to note that the road it is only accessible by foot.



A lovely little cottage very close to the harbour . Good communication with hosts .
