Harbour Cottage

5-star Cottage in Saltburn-by-the-Sea with kitchen
Summary: A beautiful seaside cottage in the heart of Staithes sleeping up to 4 people across three floors - Harbour Cottage is a true luxury bolthole. The property is situated in the historic fishing village of Staithes, once home to Captain Cook and a popular seaside retreat on the North Yorkshire coast. Harbour Cottage has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and provides accommodation for up to four guests across two bedrooms. Suitable for friends and families, with dogs also being more than welcome - Harbour Cottage is the perfect place for a luxury getaway by the sea. The Space: The cottage is laid out over three floors, with an open plan living, dining kitchen space on the ground floor. On the first floor you will find a cosy double bedroom along with the family bathroom, and on the third floor you'll find the master bedroom complete with double bed and seaside views. The property is cosy and modern and offers everything you'll need for a getaway by the sea, including Smeg Kettle and Toaster, a Nespresso coffee machine, microwave and fan assisted oven. At the rear of the property you'll find the washing room contains a washing machine and is the perfect place to store those mucky boots and any damp coats and jackets. Guest Access: Guests have access to the full property. The keys to the property are accessed via a secure key safe and full details will be provided shortly before your arrival date. There are two long stay car parks at the top of Staithes Bank and further details will be provided before your stay. The Neighborhood: 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. Getting Around: Harbour Cottage is within walking distance of all that Staithes has to offer and within 30 minutes’ drive time of Saltburn and Whitby. Staithes has great bus links to surrounding areas including Whitby, Sandsend, Saltburn, Middlesbrough, and Scarborough. The X4 bus runs from Middlesbrough to Whitby passing Staithes Lane End making it very accessible to other desired bays. The closest train stations are located in Saltburn and Whitby. Other Things to Note: Pets are more than welcome, we just ask that they are kept off the furniture. By the very nature of Staithes 16th - 17th Century properties, Harbour Cottage has steep and narrow staircases which may not be suitable for younger children or those less physically able. younger children or those less physically able. Staithes does struggle to obtain a strong mobile phone signal due to its hidden coastal location, so please do ensure that you have all the information you need to access the property before making your way down the hill. If you do need a signal urgently you can always head to Cobbles Shop on the corner of the High Street which does offer enhanced phone signal when in the vicinity of the building.

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
A delightful cottage in the heart of the village. Next door to the butchers and one minute from two pubs and a tea room. Access to the cottage was easy with the lock box arrangement. It has all amenties, coffee, milk, plenty of pots, pans and utensils. We used the oven and hob with no problems. Theres also washing up liquid and so on so no need to take your own. The bedrooms are light and airy and tge bathroom clean with the essentials. The cottage manual and the tablet are thoughtful extras. The only improvement point is that the windows (external sides) need a good clean. In summary a beautiful cottage in a lovely location.
