3 Cowbar Bank is the one with the white bay window (see pic) and is usually booked by families. It has a living/dining room with a log burning stove, armchairs in the bay window to look out to sea, a dining table and chairs, TV with Sky Entertainment and Kids packages, a DVD and wi-fi broadband. There's a small kitchen with a hob and oven, microwave, fridge and washer-dryer, and a bathroom with bath and shower. There are three bedrooms - a lovely double, another with two single beds and a tiny third bedroom with a single bed. The staircase leading to top bedroom has restrictive head height.

4 Cowbar Bank (Old Jack's Cottage) has blue windows and sleeps two in a lovely oak-beamed double-bedroom. It has a shower room, comfortable beamed sitting room with an open fire, wi-fi broadband, TV and DVD player, and a small kitchen with combination hob/oven/grill and microwave. This cottage is the home of the main character (played by Bernard Cribbins) in the BBC's children's series 'Old Jack's Boat' which was filmed in Staithes. We know that many kids are 'Old Jack' fans and really want to stay in this cottage. We stress that no.4 is a small cottage and is equipped for a couple. But... if you are happy to bring along a travel cot or collapsable kid's bed... we have no objection small child staying at Old Jack's! Please tell us upon booking.

5 Cowbar Bank is the one at the top of the row of cottages, with blue windows. This cottage sleeps two in a pretty double bedroom with small ensuite shower room. The cosy beamed sitting room has an open fire, wi-fi broadband and TV and DVD player, and a small but well-equipped kitchen. Note: low-beamed ceiling in sitting room, not for anyone a lot over 6ft!

All cottages contain a selection of books and local information.

Full bedlinen is included, towels are provided and there's parking outside each cottage for one car. For more details about the cottages and the village, click on our Frequently Asked Questons (FAQ) page or scroll down to see more pictures below.
