A coastal retreat within Staithes, where you can smell the fresh sea air and uncover the most spectacular scenery, a cosy cottage great for friends and family.

This fabulous seaside bolthole, in the charming fishing village of Staithes, sleeps six guests and two furry companions. With its cobbled streets and characterful fishermen’s cottages, you’ll feel like you’ve wandered straight into a postcard! The long-distance trail, The Cleveland Way, passes through the village; follow it inland through the North York Moors or stride out along the coast towards Whitby and beyond.

 

The mid-terrace Grade II-listed property offers spacious accommodation and a wealth of original features. There’s a small entrance vestibule where you can store all your dog-walking gear, opening into the large kitchen/diner. This is a great social space where you can all come together to enjoy mealtimes and plan the next day’s adventures. A set of stairs leads down to the cosy lounge. On this level, there is also a snug, where the woofers can retreat if all the socialising gets a bit much. There is no outdoor space, but with a paw-friendly beach just 100 metres from the property, it’s easy to stretch the hounds’ legs before breakfast.

 

The section of the Cleveland Way from Staithes to Runswick Bay is gorgeous. It runs for 3 miles along the clifftops, boasting spectacular sea views. Bring your binoculars – it’s perfect birdwatching territory. Once you arrive in Runswick Bay, Rover and Fido will love charging around on the beach before you all retreat to the local pub for a hearty meal. The property is on the fringe of the North York Moors National Park, with its breathtaking landscapes and stunning moorland. For a truly unique experience, however, why not venture out after dark? With such low light pollution, it’s one of the best places in the country for stargazing.

There is a small enclosed backyard and a bench outside the front door, but no other outside space. Luggage can be unloaded at the front door, but cars must be parked in one of the public or private car parks at the top of the old village.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Staithes is an interesting village with plenty on offer in the village itself and the immediate surrounding area. Waverly House is compact accommodation for four adults but it has everything you need and is a warm, charming and snug house for a short autumn/winter break.

What an excellent location! If you can put up with noisy seagulls all night, however you get used to this. The cottage was beautiful and had plenty of room for a family. A fully equipped kitchen, a great den downstairs for chilling and the top bedroom has an amazing view of the harbour.
