A former fisherman's cottage brimming with character, Waycot Holiday Cottage in Staithes is a mere 5 minute stroll from the harbour via the scenic cobbled streets of Staithes. Enchanting features include beamed ceilings, a cosy log burning stove and steep winding stairs. Shops, inns, a cafe, a bistro and restaurant are all just a few minutes' walk away and a parking permit is included. Staithes is a stunning coastal base ideal for exploring the wider North Yorkshire area and popular nearby locations including Whitby and the North York Moors.
Weekly booking changeover is usually a Friday to Friday. Short breaks (3 and 4 nights) are available from Friday to Sunday/Monday or Monday to Friday - or alternatively by arrangement. Please do call us to discuss your needs.
The cottage is available during Christmas and New Year. High season prices (£475 per week) apply for Christmas, New Year, Easter, Bank Holidays and peak July and August. At other off peak times the cottage is charged at £350 per week.
Staithes is a picturesque, unspoilt 'olde worlde' fishing village, much loved by artists, walkers and those wishing to get away from it all. It has a fascinating history, evocatively captured by the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre, a delightful beach and harbour with Seadrift Cafe, and also sports a Lifeboat Station and RNLI shop.
Further amenities include an Art Gallery, shops, Royal George and Cod & Lobster pubs which serve evening meals, and as an alternative, the popular Cleveland Corner Bistro. The Captain Cook Inn at the top of the village has live entertainment on a regular basis.
Exit the A174 into Staithes and continue following Staithes Lane until to get to the Captain Cook Inn where the road sweeps around to the right and into a public car park - a parking permit is included for parking here.
You can instead continue straight on instead of turning right into the car park. Drive down the steep hill to the end of Browns Terrace where you will be able to unload your luggage and collect yoru parking permit.
When you drive down the hill stop the car - half on the pavement and in front of the first house located on the left hand side - towards the bottom of the hill.
On the right hand side opposite you will see signs for Browns Terrace just above a green garage door. Waycot Cottage is the second property along just on the right. Your parking permit will be left on the table, and you should be able to find a suitable place to turn the car around. Ensure you don't park in the 'Residents' section.
