Staithes

An idyllic fishing village on the North Yorkshire & Cleveland Heritage Coast, Staithes sits right alongside the Cleveland Way between the two Nab headlands of Cowbar and Penny. B&Bs and holiday cottages here offer a peaceful waterfront location on one of the UK's precious Jurassic coastlines rich in fossils, smuggling and fishing heritage, and offering a mix of cove beaches, fishing harbours and magnificent cliff top coastal walking.

Perfect for exploring North Yorkshire's Captain James Cook Trail, the great explorer and navigator had his first experience of the sea as a boy in Staithes. Find out more at The Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre with its wonderful collection of antiquities and memorabilia relating to Cook and the fishing village. Fondly known locally as 'Steers', Staithes offers a unique traditional fishing village setting, still amongst the top 10 lobster ports in England!

Relax in one of the Staithe's Free House real ale inns, watch the small fishing vessels head out from the picture-postcard harbour or head off on a choice of walks from the village, including coastal walking at its best, North along the Cleveland Way towards the magnificent Boulby Cliffs reaching heights of 200 metres. The sandy beach of Runswick Bay and the many attractions of Whitby are within easy along the coast to the south. Browse and book Staithes accommodation online now.
