Situated at Staithes, near Whitby, these former World War I army bunkers are in an idyllic position close to the countryside and sea. Four of the barracks have been ingeniously and tastefully transformed to provide good quality accommodation retaining much rustic character and charm. The remaining four lodges retain their near original condition as a visual reminder of their former function. Each refurbished lodge has the added advantage of free parking, an outdoor sitting area and bike parking racks.
Situated just off the Cleveland Way, there are many fine moorland and cliff top walks. There is a golf course and driving range in Brotton, 6¾ miles away, and at Scaling Reservoir, 7¼ miles, there is sailing and fishing. There is a leisure centre 2 miles down the road and a 2-minute stroll down the cobbled street brings you to the centre of the picturesque fishing village with its small harbour nestling beneath rugged cliffs. Step back in time and walk the quaint narrow passages, as Captain James Cook himself must have done. Here in Staithes there are village shops, pubs, cafés and a restaurant, and in 2020 the village was featured on the BBC programme ’Gone Christmas Fishing’ with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer. Why not travel on Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Express (the North Yorkshire Moors Railway) through ’Heartbeat’ country, or visit Whitby and its famous abbey which is 11 miles away.
Open planned kitchen/diner recently refurbished 2022.

Please note: As the four lodges are in close proximity to one another, they could be booked for groups of up to 24 guests. Additional en-suite rooms available on site, on request with owner.

In Staithes, near Whitby there is the Life Boat weekend in August and the Arts and Heritage Festival in September.

A beautiful harbour village. The steep walk down (& back!) to the harbour with it's small beach keep the big crowds away but there are plenty of local pubs and cafes and it's easy to get the Whitby-Middlesborough bus to other coastal places. The old military hut is beautifully decorated and perfect for a summer family gathering. The electricity £1 meter was on the blink but Sarah got it sorted as quickly as possible. We'd definitely consider returning.

My family and I had a fantastic holiday in this cottage. Great location. Plenty of space. Attentive owner and staff. Would recommend. The pool table was a great addition.
