This characterful four-storey end terrace house is snugly located on the high street in the North Yorkshire seaside village of Staithes. Once the filming location for kids’ TV favourite Old Jack’s Boat, you also have some fine pubs, cafes, and restaurants more or less on your doorstep. Staithes also has a few handy shops down by the picturesque working harbour. If you are looking to venture out on your holiday, you can walk the Cleveland Way and follow it to the gorgeous Runswick Bay (3 miles). The village stands 10 miles north of Whitby with its annual calendar of wonderful live events such as a real ale and a jazz festival. Whitby is perhaps most famous for its long-standing associations with the fictional tale of Count Dracula by Bram Stoker. You can follow in the head vampire’s footsteps to visit Whitby Abbey and many other Gothic locations around the town. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink around the town. Other attractions in the local area include Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre (0.5 miles), Land of Iron (5.5 miles), Roseberry Topping (23.5 miles), and RSPB Saltholme (29 miles).

Enter the property through the front door to encounter the first of two large lounges. The front lounge has a wood burner and TV, whilst the other has a chest full of games to quench your competitive urges. In the basement is the well-equipped kitchen/diner with access to the courtyard garden. Up on the first and second floors, you will find the bedrooms and bathrooms. On the first floor, there is a double bedroom and a bathroom with a double shower and WC. There is also room for a supplied day bed on the landing area if you have an extra guest.

Great location and loads of space. Nice to have the garden area. Kitchen well stocked with all the equipment you could need. Pubs and sea close by and buses easy to get to for travel.

Spacious 4 storey property with a multitude of rooms to relax in and a nice outdoor sport. It was only a short walk from the beach which was perfect for our dog.

Thornwick cottage was gorgeous. I havent stayed in a. Holiday cottage for a long time, and was delighted with this. The standard of decor and furnishings was very high and it was spotlessly clean. Would love to go back sometime.
