York House description

Holiday home
York House is a wonderful detached cottage in the village of Staithes, with sea views and a wealth of character and charm. There are five bedrooms - a king-size double leading to a twin on the second floor, and on the first floor a king-size double, double with en-suite wet room and a single. There is also a bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle on the first floor, and a cloakroom on the ground floor. There is a kitchen with dining area, a sitting room with open fire in feature fireplace, and a basement games room with full size pool table. Outside is a small courtyard, and a parking permit is provided for two cars for the car park at the top of the bank a couple of minutes' walk from the cottage. York House has the amenities and beach of Staithes on the doorstep, as well as good walking and easy access to the rest of the coast, including Whitby, or the lovely North York Moors.

The seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist's dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs and there is a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliffside to the sea's edge. Staithes is a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

A lovely property with a homely feel. It is in a quaint setting, peaceful and with stunning views across the harbour. There were great walks close by too.

It was the perfect house for such a large number of people. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The amenities were lovely and the views superb. I would have little difficulty in recommending this property to anyone. Well worth a visit.

We loved the comfort of the house and the high quality of the contents. We loved the village itself, the pubs and gorgeous coffee places, and the scones; the friendliness and helpfulness of all we met! We enjoyed setting off for a walk from the house, with no need to get the car - the cliff walks to the nearby villages were so good. We loved everything!

We have stayed in Staithes at New Year for the last 6 years and this beats all the rest! We stayed with family and found we had plenty of room and the bedroom and bathroom spaces worked well. Having the pool room was excellent for us all, we spent every evening having a tournament and a laugh. We will stay nowhere else now and have already checked for the next New Year sadly to find it taken, but this is not surprising!

A lovely cottage, with all that is required to make a holiday enjoyable. The pool table is great and kept the children, and adults, busy. There was a fabulous view out to sea and it was less than 5 minutes walk to the sea. Staithes and the surrounding area is beautiful. Can't imagine a stay in this cottage being anything other than fabulous.

A beautiful and comfortable property, very well presented and with the most fantastic views of Staithes. Very well equipped for a family holiday - just sad to have to leave it behind! The weather was excellent and so many great things to do within a stones throw. Already talking about when we can return!

The house is beautiful, the kitchen, bedrooms and particularly bathrooms are gorgeous and so well decorated! The living room is functional but loads of seating so very comfortable and the fire was a great addition. Love the pool room too. The area is brilliant, so much to do. Great kitchen for cooking. The beds were excellent. It was very well priced and informative with the pack about the house and area. Thank you!

York House is in a fantastic location. Unusually for Staithes it is a large detached house, with no house on the opposite side of the road, giving beautiful views from many rooms. The House is spacious, clean and furnished to a high standard. Look forward to a return trip.

Cannot believe this fabulous cottage has never had a mention on trip advisor before, it is a credit to its owners, who have obviously spared no expense and lovingly brought this cottage up to a very high standard, this is our 7th visit to staithes and we have stayed in several cottages in the few years we have been visiting, either as a couple or with extended family. This occasion we travelled with family, four couples and the dog. The cottage is spacious, warm, clean, comfy, very homely, extremely well equipped and sooooooo beautiful. We have had champagne breakfasts sat around the large dining table, had ladies verses men pool tournaments on the fab pool table in the basement. We have laughed until we,ve cried and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this cottages warmth. So much so we will be booking again for next year without trawling the pages of accomodation on offer in this area. the owner of this cottage deserves 10 out of 10 for customer satisfaction, because it's a ten from Len

This is the first time my family and I have done a 'cottage' holiday, and with York House the bar has been set very high. We would hope that any future cottage would meet these very high standards.
