Having just stayed in no 4 for the third time this year it has stunning views from inside and outside plus parking right outside the door which is a bonus for staithes the cottage also has heating plus wi-fi included and
is very cosy and charming with a open fire and good neighbous the house keeper popped in after arrival to check all ok and is very helpfull and available all the time as he only lives 200 yards away carnt wait for the next holiday in paradise
We loved our stay in a beautiful little fisherman's cottage, and Staithes is now high on our list for a re-visit. I'm an artist myself so really appreciated Jackie and Max's efforts to put really nice genuine art works in the cottage, rather than the QD stores bargain bin prints so often used to decorate holiday lets. Staithes is one of those places where you come away planning to move house.....usually un-realistically! We loved it and highly recommend.
Just stayed in fishermans cottage no 4 the cottage was clean and tidy on arrival the housekeeper called as we where unloading to check all ok and again in the week the cottage is in the perfect place and a good base to explore and with parking right outside the door thats a bonus for staithes also the free wi-fi was very very good sitting in the window looking out to sea is superb but the real bonus is sitting outside on the seat with a drink taking in the stunning views we will keep comming back to this quaint charming cottage and in fact have just booked again for august
Comfy double bed and 'reasonable view of a corner of the harbour...by no means 'stunning' though. Hot water from taps only luke warm, half a toilet roll available, have to put money in the electric meter, way noisy macerator and bathroom vent fan, outside bin already full when I got there, no house keeper ever popped by (all week) to say hello or see how I was settling in, mini cooker pretty pathetic for grilling anything, some crockery found to be in a greasy condition, front garden rose trees needed a major chopping back and the outside door/window woodwork needed a severe rub down and re-paint job. Also some electrical socket outlets were in a shoddy unsafe condition. The 'Old Jack's Boat' novelty thing also wore off rapidly because of seemingly endless tourists taking pictures etc whist I was trying to relax outside, For the money paid, even in July, it was not really very good value for money in my eyes....and I've stayed in quite a few properties in Staithes over the years to make this comparison. Sad to be so negative about it...just needs more TLC before each guest arrives..and perhaps invest a bit more money in the upkeep, etc.
The cottage was beautiful, everything we could possibly need (and more!) it is compact and tall people will need to duck, but that is all part of the experience! Great location, walkable to the harbour, the town, the pubs. It does need some skill to park well outside the cottage, but if that is your biggest challenge, such is life! Would happily recommend the cottage, what a place to stay, what an experience, glorious! Many thanks!
