We really enjoyed our stay at High Winds cottage, it's a rustic cottage in a beautiful village setting. Rustic is a true compliment, the house feels like it's hewn from stone, solid and full of history. The house was exactly as described, very clean and well presented and supplied with some very thoughtful touches such as bread, butter, milk and...

Staithes is the perfect example of an english fishing village with great pubs, sights and people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in high winds as did our little westie and the cottage was a lovely escape after a busy Christmas (with a giant comfy bed). Luckily the long walks along the coast justified the large pub meals.

About the neighbourhood
Staithes is set right on the Cleveland Way and there are some lovely walks for people of all ages and abilities either northwards towards Boulby cliffs and Saltburn or south towards Port Mulgrave, Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Whitby - famous for its beautiful black jet, its Abbey and connections with Dracula and, more recently for being a Goth mecca!

The North York Moors railway is close by, as is 'Heartbeat' country including Goathland (or 'Aidensfield'), the station of which was also used as Hogwarts Station in the Harry Potter films.

There are plenty of National Trust and English Heritage sites to visit, such as Fountains Abbey and Helmsley Castle - we always used to love it there when our boys were younger, because they couldn't break it!
