Sports & Adventure Activities
Better than a Spa - the moment you enter the front door an atmosphere of total relaxation takes over.
This cottage is a really really special find. The cottage is equiped like a home from home not like a rental cottage so you immediately feel like you are at home.
The fixtures & fittings are v high quality.
Walk down the cobbled street to the sea front to enjoy a crab sandwich and a latte or a pint of the real stuff in the traditional pubs.
Just a short hop from Whitby this cottage is HIGHLY RECOMMENED!
We were lucky enough to stay in the cottage for three nights in January and it was amazing. I can't praise it highly enough and really want to go again. We were a party of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids) and we all fit in the house comfortably (by having a blow up bed in the master bedroom for one of the kids). The kids loved the house as it had an enchanted air about it. The adults loved it as it was so comfortable. A short walk took us to two pubs, a gorgeous bistro and most importantly, the sea and beach. There is so much history in the area and the locals are so friendly. It is obvious that the owners really want to look after their guests and provide lots of home comforts on arrival. It is also handy that there is a short stay parking bay outside the house for unloading - not every cottage in Staithes has this luxury. A little tip - Asda do home delivery to the area so we got our supplies delivered when we arrived - it saved us having to take it with us in the car
No log burner.
Brunswick cottage is a beautifully presented and comfortable house in a charming location. The biggest disappointment was the fact that there is no log burner although this is advertised. (and continues to be advertised over a month later). Upon arrival and contacting the owner we were told it had been removed 18 months previously and that if we weren't happy we could leave and have a full refund, not what we wanted after a four hour drive. Not the response we were expecting and remain baffled as to why the descriptions and photograph of a log burner remain on the advert.
We were sorry to have disappointed this client. We offered a full refund, and even offered a one night stay and full refund, but the client chose to stay, and pay for the holiday.
We do not now have a woodburner as clients preferred to be warm on arrival and not an hour later.
Yet another great stay in Staithes!
Very clean pretty cottage which is tastfully decorated, with a great deal of thought gone into what is provided for your stay.
That welcome cup of tea/coffee (milk provided) and everything you could want in a lovely well equipped fitted kitchen with high quality fixtures & fittings throughout.
Add that to the lovely quaint feeling of Staithes with friendly locals and good food from the Cod & Lobster pub, what more do you need for a relaxing break away from the moden world! Ok, maybe good weather, which we had which was just a plus to the whole package!
A little piece of heaven.
The booking of the cottage was very straightforward and all correspondance was answered very swiftly and professionally.
The cottage is beautiful, exactly as seen in the photographs on it's advert. The appliances are all very good quality and are easy to operate. Going in October with a 7yr old we really needed a dryer and this one was great. it was also excellent to have the dishwasher. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed. I really enjoy cooking and this kitchen was perfect for entertaining. Full size fridge and freezer and an excellent oven.
The bedrooms are large with plenty of storage space and the beds are very comfortable.
The bathrooms are lovely and it was great to have the two. My grandson had the top bedroom and was very happy up there.
The sitting room was very cosy and the seating very comfortable.
Although the cottage is along the main street, once inside it did feel very private and was well insulated with very little noise to be heard. The position of the cottage is perfect for nipping in and out. The heating system is easy to operate and made the place feel really snug.
And now for Staithes itself: this was the first time we had been and we all fell in love with the place. It's so peaceful, just like stepping back in time. It is fairly small which all added to the charm. We loved just walking around, fishing and crabbing. I particularly just liked sitting by the harbour and thinking. It was so peaceful and tranquil.
The pubs are lovely and full of character and the staff are excellent. The food, beer and wine are all good and very competativley priced. My grandson loved the little bistro on the corner and enjoyed going in each afternoon for an ice-cream and milkshake. Again the owners were very nice.
I would recommend Staithes and this cottage. We have stayed in many different holiday lets over the years and this one is by far the best. We normally go to France for our summer holidays but next year we will return to Staithes and this beautiful cottage for 2 weeks and are looking forward to it already. Another good thing is that all the major supermarkets deliver there so it's great to set it up before you leave home and not worry about carting provisions or trailing out to the supermarket.
Lots of tourist info in the property.
We pre-booked our car into the car park at the top of the hill and this worked out very well.
If you are thinking about booking, go ahead, I can guarantee you won't regret it.
Getaway from it all Cottage!
Stayed for a weekend with 4 other adults. A delightful, cosy and warm cottage with good modern facilities. Plenty of towels and beds very comfortable. I was so impressed I wished I could live there, its just like stepping into your own cosy home. Staithes is a delightful, quiet seaside village with a few good shops and pubs, especially the Cod & Lobster which serves delicious food. We drove to Sandsend and shortly after high tide walked along the beach to Whitby which was about 2 miles and then got the bus back to Sandsend. Very enjoyable walk. Would definitely visit again and will certainly be recommending the cottage to friends and family.
