Staithes is the quaint coastal hamlet which was recently named one of Britain’s most beautiful seaside villages. It has high cliffs, winding streets and mismatched cottages bursting with charm.

The village is also known for its abundance of fossils which can be found along the small beach and in the cluster of rockpools. This area is nicknamed the ‘Dinosaur Coast’ as it’s packed with history.

Staithes is a magnet for art and artists alike. Throughout the village you’ll find amazing painted illusions known as the ‘Painted Illusions Trail’ created by the famous artist Paul Czainski. It is also the home to the impressionist art society, known as Staithes Group, and their work can always be seen dotted around. Visit Staithes Gallery and browse the wonderful exhibits inspired by the village.

Home Truths

By the very nature of Staithes 16th - 17th Century properties, Harbour Cottage has steep and narrow staircases so we ask all guests to take care when using the stairs.

Due to the nature of the property and it's central location, the cottage is on the cosy side.

There isn't a WC on the ground floor so you will need to take the stairs to the first floor to find the family bathroom.

Please note that the bedroom on the top floor has an open staircase so we ask guests to take care in this space.
