History of Glendevon

Although we're not sure exactly how old Glendevon is precisely we have a documentary records dating from the early 19th century up to the present day

We know that the cottage has been inhabited by a succession of families working in seafaring and mining - industries and occupations of importance to the local area. Glendevon is a genuine fishermens' cottage

The profession of Master Mariner features in the ownership records commentary - a Master Mariner was the highest qualification possible in the Merchant Navy

Local Staithes names are connected to the cottage - Ward - Shippey - Crooks - Theaker

In 1861 Glendevon had 3 residents - this had risen to 8 in 1871 and included a young girl as a house servant - Sarah Crooks, and a lodger Ann Theaker

In 1881 one of the sons of the household Matthew Ward was at sea and is recorded as serving on the 'True Love' a fishing vessel from Whitby manned by Staithes fishermen

By 1911 Matthew was in the fish business on his own account as a Hawker owning his own horse and cart. It is not hard to imagine Matthew shouting his wares on 'The Staithe' then delivering orders by horse drawn transport to local villages

Glendevon Cottage Staithes

  • 5 of 5

We had visited Staithes before and if you have not been there it is well worth a visit. The lower half of the village is centered round it's harbor and features a small beach, rock pools etc. There is also two public houses serving excellent food and drink as well as numerous cafes shops etc. The cottage itself is sited near the centre and has easy access to the beach and amenities. Gelndevon has tow bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) a living room and kitchen and is remarkably spacious given its small appearance. Everything was clean and tidy and the cottage was well equipped and included everything you would need for a week or two away although we couldn't find the pegs! Outside there is a small area to sit and relax with a glass of wine with views of the harbor. An excellent cottage to just sit and relax or act as a base for your holiday. We also had a dog and as the village is on the Celeveland Way there is excellent walking options on all sides

cosy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, clean and tidy. Very cosy with open fire and heaters. TVs in both bedrooms as well as main room a bonus. WiFi intermittent and absolutely no mobile phone signal (go up the hill and you can receive texts then!) 😉򒐠Bedding included but bring your own towels. Great stay for local walks and sea views along the cliffs. No parking though - need to pay to stay in local car park at additional cost. But would definitely recommend for walkers, bird spotters and English Heritage members as Whitby Abbey alone is beautiful and only 10 mins by car.
