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

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, perfect for our family, just over the road from the beach and the cod and lobster pub which does great food and is a good spot to take kids. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed.

Cute, clean cottage in perfect spot

  • 4 of 5

Nothing like our home ( we are a minimal family ) however we enjoyed the slightly dated interior and the warm feeling this cottage has. The traditional fire was warmth and comforting ( kids loved it ) rooms were clean and bright

Perfect for staithes as right in the hub of bay .

Quiet setting and slept beautifully

Thanks for a great weekend bolt hole

Cozy little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Nice little cottage warm enough with storage heaters so didn't need to use coal fire Which was great as this would have cost more which we thought was abit much when usually that is in the cost of stay other than that we enjoyed our stay beautiful area thanks

Everything we needed, in wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

My two boys and I had a wonderful stay at Glendevon. It couldn't have been more convenient, which meant a proper break for me, with everything we needed in the cottage and the harbour, pub, cafe, butcher's etc a stone's throw away. A very relaxing break.
