Kildale Cottage sleeps up to four guests and is a great retreat from which to enjoy a relaxing break and explore the North York Moors. Recently refurbished, the cottage is equipped with everything needed to make guests as comfortable as possible and its enviable position just yards away from the harbour in the heart of Staithes village, provides not only the sea but also a good choice of amenities on the doorstep!
Staithes is a popular picturesque fishing village on the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast, surrounded by spectacular coastal and moorland scenery. With much character and historic interest, Staithes is much loved for its cobbled streets, little alleyways, pretty little beach, harbour, traditional pubs and interesting shops to browse. For walkers, there are superb cliff top walks, or enjoy a lazy day on the beach searching for fossils - the perfect way to relax and unwind. The area is also popular with artists and it is hardly surprising when you see the beautiful seaviews and stunning surrounding landscape.
Dating back to the mid 15th century, Staithes has a fascinating past that earned itself a reputation in not only fishing but also boat building. Whilst these industries have declined over the years, today you can still sample some of the fine lobsters, crabs and locally caught fish in the local eateries, where you may also be able to learn the tales of smugglers past!
The area offers a host of attractions and interesting places to visit. If you want to stay locally in Staithes itself, why not take a local boat trip for some off-shore fishing or visit the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre, and the Lifeboat Station. Walk along the Cleveland Way to Runswick Bay for lunch in one of the local pubs or just meander around the village and browse the interesting little shops. A little further afield but within easy driving distance: visit the picturesque village of Sandsend with its golden beach and great surfing opportunities; the resort of Scarborough for some traditional seaside fun; the coastal town of Whitby or the pretty fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay. The North York Moors Railway and the Esk Valley and Railway also provide relaxed ways of exploring the surrounding unspoilt countryside.
