Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Town: The seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist's dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs and there is a sheltered sandy beach set amongst therocky coastline. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliffside to the sea's edge. Staithes is a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.

I rented this cottage with friends as a base for doing the Cleveland way and stayed 3 nights. It is ideally situated at the bottom of the hill in Staithes village. It is nearby the 3 pubs which all served excellent food and beer. The cottage is ideal for fit people and small families, but is not suitable for elderly or disabled. A tip is to park up at the top of the village find the place first, and then drive down for unloading. Staithes village has very limited parking. If you haven't been Staithes is one of the best kept secrets in Britain, a magical place of a bygone era, charming quaint and relaxing place to visit.
