About the property

Four bedrooms, two bathrooms; Perfect for larger families or groups; Spacious!

Chapel Garth is an imposing property set on the upper part of the High Street at the foot of Staithes Bank adjacent to the Bethel Chapel. The house underwent major renovation work in 2014 which created a fantastic holiday property set over 4 floors. Chapel Garth has been finished to a very high standard and offers many facilities for the holiday maker, but its two key advantages over other cottages in Staithes are parking for up to two cars on a private driveway (we also provide a separate parking permit just in case you have larger vehicles) and a self contained patio to the rear with elevated views over Roxby Beck towards Cowbar. Chapel Garth is set over 4 floors and has spacious living accommodation which is perfect for holidays and short breaks throughout the year. Full central heating and pressurised hot water system. Open fire on ground floor. Free Wi-Fi access. The patio gets afternoon/evening sunshine in the summer months and has a large table and chairs and BBQ. Chapel Garth enjoys the perfect location in the heart of Staithes with easy access to local shops, pubs and restaurants and is only a short walk to the seafront.

lovely village and great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, stylish & comfortable property- a great base for exploring Staithes and surrounding area. The property has been done to a great standard and is very well equipped. With 3 generations of our family staying in the cottage, It was very handy to have the 2 separate living spaces (both with their own TV, DVD & music systems) & all the space the cottage offers. Also a bonus to have prized parking spaces! We really enjoyed our daily visits walking to the beach & exploring Staithes.

We had a wonderful relaxed weekend in the delightful village of Staithes.

  • 5 of 5

The period cottage had been delightfully modernised whilst maintaining its original features and charisma . It was tastefully furnished , very comfortable and we couldn't have asked for anything more . Simply wonderful .

Perfect cottage in beautiful Staithes

  • 5 of 5

Honestly one of the best holiday homes any of have stayed in, anywhere. And we're fussy, well-travelled, globe-trotting bunch, so it takes a lot to impress us. The cottage is beautifully renovated, the furnishings are elegant and classy and the whole place has a wonderful, inviting feel to it. The pictures make the cottage look good but actually they don't do it justice. The cottage feels even bigger than it looks in the pictures, and it's not easy to find spacious accommodation in Staithes.

The booking process was seamless. The house was spotless when we arrived and the parking was set up brilliantly.

Staithes is delightful. If you haven't been you must. And make sure you stay in Chapel Garth when you do.
