About sara esler

My name is Sara Esler.

sara esler purchased this cottage in 2008

Why sara esler chose Staithes

We wanted somewhere that was easily accessible to us and offered lots to do for the children as well as ourselves. We love the village, there are so many nooks & crannys, alleyways, paths, steps, hiding places, look outs, climbing & scrabbling spots, activities, walks, sea views, ghost stories, historic tales, rock pools, fossils, fish in the sea & friendly faces...that we never tire of going up there.

The North Yorkshire Coast is a beautiful part of England with many beautiful beaches & coastline to visit from Robin Hoods Bay to Saltburn on Sea, and in land from Surfing at Scarborough & Sandsend, the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway, the famous Magpie restaurant & Abbey at Whitby, Castle Howard, Dalby Forest, picturesque Hutton le hole and Riverleux Abbey.

What makes this cottage unique

Salmon Cottage is a few steps from the sea and right in the heart of Staithes. The cottage is unusual in the village as it has plenty of space and a garden at the back where you can enjoy a BBQ in the summer months. The cottage is easily heated and enjoys a cosy stove to warm up the living room in winter. Please note although the garden is enclosed it is not secure - dogs can v easily escape!

The 2 pubs in the village are literally a stones throw from the front door, as well as the Endeavour which serves high quality meals.

The butchers shop next door is open every morning mon-sat and sells fresh bread and milk as well as all the usual.

Salmon cottage is pretty, well equipped,warm and comfy. We had a brilliant Easter weekend stay the log burner Kept us cosy. Bedrooms were comfy and so sweet. Location was brilliant as was the village and surrounding walks. Fab meals in Local pubs and live music at the captain Cook No stay would be complete without a run into Whitby. Just superb experience but the cottage was the highlight. Highly recommend 👍?😃?⛵️🏖?

Great family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here with our 3 young children. The cottage was warm, clean and spacious so the kids could roam around and entertain themselves. The kitchen is large so that the family can fit easily around the table and cooking and eating can be sociable. The best bit is the close proximity to the sea - we were there is less than 60 seconds! Really perfect and Staithes is delightful.
