What Past Guests Are Saying
Every thing you need..and much more!
Staithes is one of my favourite places to visit...any time of the year but especially in winter. Nothing nicer than coming in from a cold winter walk..to a cosy cottage where you can light the fire and relax. This is the best equipped cottage I have stayed at so far! especially the kitchen, everything you can think of. Lots of fresh towels provided for each room, and all in all the cottage is quite spacious for those large groups.

Thanks for the lovely review Emma, and it's great that you love the same things as we do about Winter in Staithes.
Look forward to welcoming you back, and have a great 2013.

relaxed,recharged and ready to step back into the ratrace
I would like to start by saying the cottage is exactly as described by the owners andy and Michelle,The details given either by phone or email was fantastic and very thorough.From the moment we walked back through the door it was as if we had never been away everything is designed to make you feel at home,which is great and you can settle staight in,We loved nothing more than to spend time in the kitchen and then later on at night in the very comfortable lounge with the fire roaring.The location is excellent with no need to use the front door when you've been walking and got a bit muddy as you can come in through the small rear yard into the kitchen and strip your boots and coats off without traping through the lounge area.The ameneties are great with free wifi available and plenty of games and books to while away the nights if you want to relax and not go out anywhere.If you do decide to sample the local public houses then the royal george is very family friendly and the food is very good,and if you want to venture a few hundred yards further round the village the cod and lobster is just as welcoming.I would say that the whole experience of our stay was brilliant and from my point of view the fact you can not get a mobile phone signal is absolute heaven.I would reccomend coastguards cottage to anybody looking for a place to go and relax and sample life in a beautiful village.

Rainy holiday in staithes
We had a wonderfull week in the coastguard cottage. We went with a family of 4, 2 little boys, 2.5 years and 7 months. The cottage is cosy, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the big living kitchen, cooked nice meals and the fireplace in the living area was perfect. Nice bed and 3 bedrooms.
Staithes is like an old postcard, with little shops, good views and some pubs walking distance from the house. Parking on top of the hill was not a problem, nice little walk and you are allowed to load/unload the car in front of the cottage.
Surrounding area nice to explore. Definitely would go back again!
Home from home - well worth a visit
A superb place to stay...exactly what we were after to unwind, feel at home and completely relax. Coastguard Cottage is centrally located in the quiet fishing village of Staithes, easy to find and a pleasure to come back to after a day out exploring. The cottage was very well equipped, there were just the two of us but it sleeps six and would make a very comfortable base for a family holiday. Walks over the Cleveland Way on the doorstep to the likes of Runswick Bay and Sandsend (fossilhunting and fine beaches), recommend the arts and crafts centre on Church Street in Staithes and happily sat outside and watched the tide come in at the Cod & Lobster pub. The winding backstreets of Staithes itself are a gem to explore and the Fox and Hounds pub in nearby Dalehouse village does a mean steak pie. A memorable break on the Yorkshire coast and Coastguard Cottage was an excellent find.

Lovely cottage in a fab location!
Great break in a lovely cottage. All you could need - clean and fresh, and within a minutes walk from the harbour/beach and a couple of lovely pubs - quiz night with sandwiches thrown in on a Wednesday at the Cod and Lobster! The cottage provided for all our needs - the kitchen was very easy and like home from home. The harbour was a delight, and the village is particularly scenic when you look back on it from the harbour wall, very quaint, with small houses everywhere along the cobbled streets. Picture postcard stuff! Would go again - felt very relaxed and away from it all.
Fantastic Cottage in Tranquil Location
We (a family of 4) spent a fab week in this cottage. I spent months and months looking at cottages in Staithes but settled on this one & I am so glad I did. I saw many of the cottages I had considered but didn't feel any of them would have been better. The location of Coastguards was perfect, just a short stroll to the beach yet far enough away to be peaceful.
The cottage was well equipped. Many holiday cottages just have the bare basics, but here there was everything you could need and more. The cottage was really homely and comfortable with quality fixtures and fittings. The children loved having a whole floor to themselves. One of them had the bunk room and could look out of the window over the jumble of rooftops where he had an exclusive view of a seagull nest complete with (large) baby seagull!
Staithes is a small village but we managed to spend many days without leaving and found plenty to do and explore.
I thought the fact you can't park in the village very long would be a problem but it wasn't. In fact the lack of cars and mobile reception only added to the relaxing feel of the village.
If you are looking for a holiday to really slow down, unwind and relax then this is the one for you.
We stayed in Coastguards cottage at the end of June and I can't fault it, from the location, owners, interior. It was all fantastic. Great days out at Whitby and Robin hoods bay. We would love to return soon!
Delightful holiday cottage and location
Excellent cottage with everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Ideally located in the beautiful fishing village of Staithes with all essential amenities within walking distance so didn't need to use the car.
On the beautiful Cleveland Way coastal path with unspoilt villages, coastline and glorious countryside.
a great week...just what we needed
Just had a lovely week in Coastguards Cottage in Staithes. The previous week had been a particularly difficult one for us, so we were ready for a holiday, and the cottage and Staihes didn't disappointment.We were surpised how large the cottage was...we only used one of the bedrooms!! The bed is large and comfy, and the cottage offered every amenity.The log burner was FaB!!.It was used every night, despite the lovely warm days we had up there! Staithes is very quirky...the hill to the car park was a bit of a trial for us oldies but we got pretty fit by the end of our stay!I We would definately recommend Coastguards Cottage to anyone!!!
All you need in a holiday cottage and more.
Excellent cottage with everything you will need for a stay plus some extra stuff you wouldn't get elsewhere.
Wonderful winter weekend break
Wonderful weekend - taking in the delights of the north yorks national park coastline, eating out in Whitby and watching the surfers at Saltburn. A great location to make your base so as to take it all in.

Fabulous Cottage in Staithes
Stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of January 2012. Cottage was superb, spotlessly clean and homely. Comfy Beds, lovely log burner in sitting room and we even had the range going in the brillant dining kitchen which was fabulous for us to eat, drink and be merry in! All mod cons and such a atmospheric three storey cottage in lovely Staithes. Walking distance to pubs, the beach and places to eat and a Co Operative foodstore at the top of the Hill. Highly Recommended. Super Friendly owners.
Fantastic place to stay in Staithes
Stayed at Coastguards Easter 2011, but just came across this on Flipkey. 4 adults, 3 children. Great house, spacious, cozy, ideal for families (but note lots of stairs & no stair gates if kids are very young) and well kitted out with everything from beach stuff, Dvds & extra blankets to a pizza tray & cutter! Will definitely be back- this place has a real home from home feel about it, and you are absolutely central in Staithes. 2 minutes from harbour etc.
I parked in Glenvale private car park because of the cctv, but felt a bit nervous for other car doors damaging my paintwork, because it is quite a steep site and tight spaces, so next time will probably just park in the council car park.
Hope this helps!
Fantastic place to stay on North Yorkshire Coast
This is the second time we have stayed at Coastguard Cottage - this time we took some friends, previously we took our grown up children. Everybody was impressed with the facilities at the cottage - it is spotless and has everything you could want to make your stay perfect. We have stayed in lots of holiday cottages and villas on the Continent and can honestly say this is one of the best. Staithes is ny favourite village on the North Yorkshire Coast and the pub and cafe in the village are welcoming and very convenient.

A first class holiday home in a wonderful location
We spent a wonderful sunny weekend in Coastguard Cottage. The house is perfect for a family getaway or break with friends. It has been done up and maintained to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The house is quirky and spread over 4 floors but this only adds to it's charm. There were loads of things already there (which I wouldn't expect from a holiday home) which really make it a home from home. I would definitely recommend this property for a holiday or short break. Staithes is also a little haven with breathtaking sea views, decent pubs and great walking right on the doorstep.
Relaxing, homely cottage close to the sea
A lovely, well equipped cottage in the heart of old Staithes. Excellent location, close to everything . Well looked after and spacious for family holiday. Loads of information given to you by the owners and a great treasure hunt put together by the owners to get to know the village - the kids loved this!! Staithes is a great location for exploring North Yorkshire, especially Sands End, Whitby and the Moors. Great local pubs, serving good food.

Thanks for the great review, and was a pleasure to have you back!
Wonderful birthday weekend
Myself and some friends rented Coastguard cottage for my 27th birthday. We had a great time while there, we already knew the area but had stayed in different places.
This cottage was by far the best, since we were celebrating the kitchen was the perfect hang out and had everything you needed.
I would go back again.
Ian Van Ham
The perfect retreat on the coast.
Comfortable, spacious and welcoming.
Very well furbished with everything you'll need to experience a perfect home away from home!
Highly recommended cottage!
As a family with 4 children aged between 10 and 18 months we often struggle to find accomodation that ticks all our boxes. Coastguard's Cottage certainly did this! From the Sky+ and playstation to the buckets, spades & deckchairs (and a bottle of wine for ma & pa) all thoughtfully provided by the cottage owners our entire family had an extremely enjoyable and memorable break here. The cottage was extremely clean, stylish and comfortable, a real "home from home" everything had a feel of care and attention. We will be re-visiting Coastguard's cottage for sure - I hope when the weather is a bit chillier so that we can fire up the range in the kichen to bake some bread! Very Highly recommended.
Fantastic cottage,great location, cozy and very comfortable. Ideal for a break away with family and friends.
My favourite of favourite places!!!
Coastguard cottage, oh how we love coastguard cottage!!!
I was lucky enough to come across Coastguard some years back now when looking for a beautiful, romantic break to treat my partner for a birthday getaway...not knowing anything about the cottage or Staithes really for that matter at the time, I booked and could not believe our luck on arrival. The cottage (well great big house!) is simply the most beautiful place ever, regardless of weather it is an absolute delight to stay. Staithes has many stunningly beautiful walks, (inland as well as coastal), however, a grey rainy day makes the perfect excuse to light the fire and laze in the sumptous surroundings of the cottage.
The cottage itself is fitted out to the highest standard, the kitchen is to die for, serious, we even lit the range one night and had the most romantic meal down there, wonderful. The living room couldn't be anymore cosy and the beds are extremely comfy. There are no bad points at all to the cottage apart from you have to leave, I've tried to convince andy he needs a live in cleaner but he's not going for it, booo!!!
Staithes itself is just fantastic, like stepping back in time and not touristy like other coastal locations, make sure you make use of the local shops, the butchers is incredible and uses there own locally sourced meat and has veg etc too, the little shop across from the cottage has all the basics and the people are wonderful. 2 really nice pubs in the old part and a new find of a pub up the road in Dalehouse with pints for under £2!!!
Andy and Michelle have always been great to us too, and have been only too helpful whenever we have stayed or I've been hounding them for advice!
All in all I can't recommend highly enough, we have stayed on many occassions now and will be back many times again in the future, I'd go back today if I could. If your reading this and wondering whether to book...Book, honestly, you won't be disappointed! x
Excellent Place to Stay in Staithes
This was our second, visit to Coastguard cottage, and from a family who very rarely go anywhere twice, this is a compliment in itself.
The cottage is clean and welcoming. Starting with a good sized living room with a real wood burning stove, the staircase leads to a bathroom and three bedrooms on two seperate floors (which will comfortably sleep six), all of which feel cosy and homely.
Although Staithes has several pubs where bar meals can be purchased, cooking your own is a pleasure here. The kitchen is based in the cellar area and provides a fantastic atmosphere to any meal - in fact I really cannot do the place justice enough !
The cottage has plenty of utensils and basic everday oddments and you shouldn't be left found wanting for anything during your stay.
The cottage is situated directly onto the main street of Staithes and offers a nice, quiet retreat, just a few short minutes walk down to the beach and even less to the nearby beck.
If you have any doubts about staying here, then lose your worries - you will not regret it !
