Imagine sitting here all day and watching the world go by - the view from the bench outside No4
Cottage No4 is the location for the BBC's new series Old Jack's Boat
And here is Bernard Cribbins as Old Jack coming out of the cottage in the morning
Where better for sitting out than on our bench on our new (fake) grass? The only lawn in the village
The cottage has a cosy, comfy traditional sitting room with an open fire and a stunning vie
Warm winter evenings watching telly in front of the fire

Super view of the harbour, just a very short stroll from the centre. Great place if you like walking.

“We'd stay here over and over and over again!”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our second visit to this wonderful little cottage and it didn't disappoint. Incredible location, with a view looking over Staithes and its fishing boats, and out to sea. You couldn't want for better - your choice whether to head out or stay put and relax. Open fire, a friendly, cosy sitting room, good variety of books and maps, and well-equipped (but small) kitchen. The cottage was fresh and clean when we arrived, with pristine bedlinen to collapse into at the end of the day. Dog-friendly, parking right outside. We've stayed around the village a few times but would never go anywhere else now we've found this one.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed here for only 2 nights, as we had to leave early due to a family emergency, but we absolutely loved it ! The cottage is on a hill, only a couple of minutes walk and you are at the sea. It has lovely views, and a very comfy bed. There's a small kitchen area, it is actually very tiny, but we managed fine to cook a couple of meals whilst we were there, and it is very well equipped. The added bonus for us was that we were able to take our Jack Russell, Alfie. Think he enjoyed the cliff top walks as much as we did. We hope to visit again, this time for longer, it certainly is the perfect place to recharge your batteries ! We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage for those seeking peace and relaxation, with stunning views. We will be back !

Pleased you enjoyed your stay and sorry about the minor hiccups. The microwave had a dodgy on-button and now been replaced, and the TV aerial adjusted - it must've slipped in the winds. We do ask all guests to report any problems to the housekeepers who are only to pleased to pop over and sort things out. We all want everyone to get the most out of their stay.
