This is a gorgeous fishing village on the North Yorkshire Coast and cottages with hot tubs in Staithes are perfect to make the most of a visit here. Whether you’re with family or friends there’s nothing better than relaxing in hot bubbles under a starlit night at the end of the day.
This is a place that time has forgotten with randomly placed cottages on winding streets seemingly untouched over the years. Nowadays it’s hard to believe it was once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast. Today it’s a delightful coastal hamlet and a popular base to explore the cliff top paths or go rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach when the tides gone out.
You can still sample ‘the catch of the day’ in The Endeavour Restaurant and The Captain Cook Inn, both serving delicious seafood dishes. The village is proud to have strong connections with Captain Cook, walk in his footsteps and learn all about the history and famous smugglers at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre. At the Staithes Gallery, in an elegant building on the high street, you will see the work of local artists including the ‘Staithes Group’ or ‘Northern Impressionists’.
There are lovely walks to Boulby Cliffs or the northern headland of Cowbar Nab with a tiny hamlet seemingly tumbling down the rock side. The Cleveland Way runs through Staithes and Skinningrove and you can explore the alum mines that once made the village famous. The coast may be known as the ‘Dinosaur Coast’ but you can also look out for gulls and seabirds nesting and soaring high above the cliffs as well as any transiting marine life. Go inland to the North York Moors National Park with stunning moorland, ancient abbeys and pretty villages, there’s nowhere quite like it to get close to nature amidst unspoilt countryside.
With popular places like the seaside towns of Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay nearby there’s plenty to do on hot tub breaks in Staithes, make sure you book yours today.
