    Very nice cottage but had to clean the bath on arrival due to Black pubes being in the bath

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry you have had this experience, however, the cottage has since had new owners and have employed professional cleaners so this will not happen again.

    We loved the cottage, it would have been helpful to have more info on local amenities, also directions stated cottage was opposite the post office which had been closed for years. maybe be better if others were warned off the steep hill into Staithes, and the need to park at the top of the hill not an issue for us but could be for others

    Lovely quaint fishermen'scottage in the heart of staiths. Cottage has everything you need and the living room is particularly cosy. Good value for money. It has single glazing if you're a light sleeper and no wifi or phone signal if you require technology, I quite enjoyed not being connected to the outside world. :)

    We sent three lovely days and nights exploring Staithes and Runswick. Anchor Lea was well located, spacious and very well equipped.

    Anchor Lea is in a great location at the centre of a lovely harbour village. Our family have fallen in love with the village and area however the visit was tainted by the poor accommodation. We were greeted on arrival with a strong damp smell which lasted all the week (it felt/smelt like we were staying in a damp training shoe). In addition the accommodation is dusty and grimy. The back yard area is dangerous (high drop from top of the paved area) and unkempt. The most positive aspect of this accommodation is the location. Be aware that the parking is some distance away up a steep hill, so you may need to budget a weeks parking charges into your weekly budget. However, the lack of cars in the village is a positive. It was difficult to relax in bed in the morning due to the local residents from 7am working on their houses and talking (loudly) in the street, maybe we were unlucky that the surrounding properties were having major renovations. It's a pity that the accommodation has so much potential but is clearly not invested in. It appears that there has been a new settee, however the accommodation would really benefit from having the damp being sorted and a good clean prior to paying customers arriving. Feel terrible providing a negative review, however i consider it important that honest feedback is given.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We do not consider our property as poor accommodation. There is some damp in the property which is not unusual for these old fisherman's cottages. As for smelling like a damp trainer, this is an unfair statement and we feel untrue. Having gone into the cottage after the guests stay, we feel our cottage is not grimy. As for being dusty, we cannot comment as we did not see it before the guest and family entered it, so we have been in touch with our caretaker so she can pay particular attention to the dusting. The property is invested in constantly, this year two new sofas, upstairs back double glazed window, hob, bathroom and top landing blinds. We cannot afford to do everything in one go, as much as we would like to. We feel very sorry that this family feel they had a bad experience with our cottage as we do care for our cottage.
