An image of Pennysteel Cottage


Located in the beautiful fishing village of Staithes overlooking the harbour. Dating back to 1800 this old fisherman's cottage is set in the heart of the village with breath taking views from every room and the terrace, which gives an opportunity to relax outside have a BBQ or just enjoy the scenery. Dogs accepted in adjacent pubs.

Staithes narrow, winding, cobbled streets are a delight to explore, plus its pretty harbour with cafes and pub. Excellent walks along the coast, the cliffs tops and in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park make the cottage an excellent base for a holiday. Close to Whitby and 'Heartbeat' Country gives it an added bonus.

The cottage is only a few yards from a traditional local pub serving excellent value bar meals; cafés; craft shops; art gallery and general stores.

Comprising of three storys, it has a double room, single room, twin (attic room), bathroom with toilet and shower, toilet, lounge/dining room and kitchen. It has a log-burning stove which can be sat in front of whilst looking out to sea beyond the terrace. A TV video, DVD, CD player, plus games are provided. Wi-Fi. Parking is free in the car park at the top of the hill. The peacefulness of the village is partly due to restrictions on traffic in the village.
