Cot and highchair available on request. Spacious grounds. Ample parking. No smoking.. 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.

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.

“This was a great little cottage in Staithes. It had everything we needed for a great week's stay. The only thing I think may have been helpful would be a small hoover or carpet sweeper to pick up bits from the carpet. Sarah was there to greet us when we arrived and was really helpful. I would also add that the ability to park on site was really good.The cottage was a 5 minute stroll to the harbour and the food in both the George and the Cod and Lobster was excellent. The meat from the butcher in the village was great (he is only open in the morning) and the coop is only a 10 minute wall up the road for all of your shopping needs.Staithes itself is a lovely fishing village, beautiful and unspoilt and a great place as a base to explore the surrounding area.”
