One of the most photographed and well known situations on the Heritage Coast, Rockpool Cottage is a pretty fishermen’s cottage positioned right on the harbour side in the highly regarded and picturesque village of Staithes on the Yorkshire coast. The cottage boasts a delightful southerly outlook with uninterrupted sea views of the bay and out to sea. It is surrounded and sheltered by high craggy cliffs at the side and rear of the property. With vehicular access and parking for two cars at the property itself, a rare commodity in the village. The property has been refurbished to a high standard with tasteful decor and furnishings throughout, whilst maintaining the character and charm this cottage possesses. This well equipped property provides an excellent base for couples and families looking to explore this beautiful area. A five minute walk will take you across the bridge and harbour side, making this the ideal self catering property from which to enjoy a beach holiday with all the family.
Situated in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park area, it is a haven for keen walkers and the cottage is situated close to the famous Cleveland Way. The best views of the village can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliffside to the sea’s edge and covers 110 miles passing through some beautiful resorts like Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Whitby. The area is renowned for its fossil hunting and fishing, and claims connections with Captain Cook, who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire coast and has a good selection of eating places offering locally sourced food, quaint tea rooms and an art gallery. It is also well known for its group of Victorian artists and art classes which are still very popular today and each September the village opens its doors to the public displaying local artists work. In addition to the enchanting children’s Cbeebies programme, Old Jacks Boat featuring Bernard Cribbins with Salty the dog is a must for all youngsters to visit, exploring the area where the adventures took place. The historic town of Whitby is only 10 miles away and is famous for its connections with Bram Stoker’s book, Dracula and also its delicious fish and chips which you must sample whilst enjoying a great day out with the family.
