Greystones is a three storey double fronted house built of beautiful hand cut sandstone – probably built in the late 17th Century. It was once a local inn called the Golden Lion and the old pub sign can just be made out above the front door.
Inside, the house is cosy yet spacious and is decorated and furnished in a relaxing but fresh style. There are some special points of interest such as the huge old ship’s timber built into the exposed stone wall in the dining area, an old range in the snug and intriguing arrangement of staircases going to different parts of the house. The pretty open fire in the lounge adds a touch of romance too.
Greystones can sleep 9 in comfort in 5 bedrooms with three bathrooms shared between them. There is a cosy lounge, the snug and a good sized, well equipped dining kitchen where everyone can eat together. The whole house is well equipped to be comfortable and practical with extras such as a high quality dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, sound systems, TVs, DVDs, a full Sky+ package and internet access. Special effort has gone into ensuring each guest has a good night’s sleep so you will find the bedrooms have large beds, pocket sprung mattresses and superior quality pillows and variable weight duvets. Greystones is a non-smoking house.
Staying in the old part of Staithes is a special experience as the village has a unique character and an atmosphere special to itself. Step out onto the cobbled street and you are only 100 metres from the safe little beach and the harbour, passing two pubs, several cafes, a great art gallery and a range of useful and interesting small shops on the way! Opposite the house is a pathway between the tightly packed houses leading down to the beck where Staithes’ few remaining fishermen moor their colourful boats.
There is plenty of interest for the whole family in the village itself and the ever popular coastal town of Whitby is just 11 miles to the south, providing a wide range of things to see and do for all ages3.
Staithes is set on the dramatic and beautiful North Yorkshire Heritage Coastand located in the North York Moors National Park – a little further afield you will find a wide range of places to visit and things to do including good beaches, stunning moorland walks, a steam railway, historic buildings and facilities for a host of different indoor and outdoor activities.
