Stayed at the Safe Harbour Cottage for a romantic break away from reality. We weren't disappointed - SHC is a beautifully renovated retreat in a breathtaking hidden gem of a village. The Owner has spared no expense in fitting out the cottage with all the mod cons (even smart TV with broadband) and some lovely finishing touches, the open fire an large comfy sofa perfect. Ample size for at least 6 adults or suitable for family use. The rental was as smooth as it could be- very reasonably priced, again the owner puts enough effort and obviously cares that you enjoy the time spent in Staithes. Evenings in Staithes is a little quite at this time of year but it was perfect for us, Whitby town is just 10 min away. Will defo be returning for a longer stay in 2015.
Stayed here in May 2015 is a fantastic location right in the village but actually there is a flat above it which you do you hear noise from the bathroom wasn't very clean and overall it was a bit grotty and tired the cottage cost quite a lot of money and I'm not sure it was value for money
Staithes is a lovely seaside village and Safe Harbour is in a great spot, just a short walk to the sea but nestled among quaint cottages. The first floor is quite spacious but downstairs is smaller, with a rather cramped living area. The decor is somewhat tired in places, especially the bathroom. However, the cottage is cosy and comfortable. We were surprised that there was no welcome pack of any kind, not even a pint of milk and a few tea bags. On the plus side, the housekeeper and handyman live just across the road and responded immediately when necessary. Great wi fi!
