If your party is larger than we can accommodate in The Fishermen's Cottages, we recommend Staithes Old Chapel - a large, stylish house on Staithes High Street which sleeps 8/9 which is owned by the little boy at the front of the picture immediately above!
The fascinating history of this old fishing village and of Captain James Cook - who lived here as a boy - can be explored at the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre (next door to Staithes Old Chapel).
One of our three Fishermen's Cottages (No. 4) is known locally as 'Old Jack's Cottage' as it is the location for the BBC TV show Old Jack's Boat
Staithes is the first village to be featured in this Best English Villages article in The Telegraph, a new cliff-top walkway with magnificent views of Staithes is reviewed in The Independent and there is a particularly nice photo of Staithes in an article on the 'cool place of the week' in the London Evening Standard.
Staithes is great for walkers and cyclists as it is on the 110 mile national trail The Cleveland Way, with its dramatic coastline aor heather moorland.
A visit to Staithes is a great opportunity to support the Lifeboats by donating, or by buying Lifeboats merchandise at the RNLI shop at the bottom of the bank (by the lifeboat station).
