Property Description

Situated at Staithes, near Whitby, these former World War 1 army barracks are in an idyllic position close to the countryside and sea. Four of the barracks have been ingeniously and tastefully transformed to provide good quality accommodation retaining much rustic character and charm. The remaining 7 lodges retain their near original condition as a visual reminder of their former function. Each refurbished lodge has the added advantage of parking and an outdoor sitting area.
Situated just off the Cleveland Way, there are many fine moorland and cliff top walks as well as golf links nearby. There is a leisure centre 2 miles down the road and a 2-minute stroll down the cobbled street brings you to the centre of the picturesque fishing village with its small harbour nestling beneath rugged cliffs. Step back in time and walk the quaint narrow passages, as Captain James Cook himself must have done. Here in Staithes there are village shops, pubs, cafes and a restaurant. Why not travel on Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Express (the North Yorkshire Moors Railway) through ’Heartbeat’ country or visit Whitby and its famous Abbey which is 11 miles away.
NB: As the four lodges are in close proximity to one another, they could be booked for groups of up to 24 guests. Additional en-suite rooms available on site, on request with owner.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 2 twin bedrooms, both with en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Gas cooker. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Large decked area and seating.

All properties: Gas central heating, gas and bed linen included. Electricity by £1 meter. Towel hire. Cot and high chair on request. Video. Microwave. Spacious grounds. Ample parking. No smoking.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This makes a fantastic base for exploring the local area. The cottage itself is absolutely lovely, very well equipped and the enclosed garden is a bonus for the dogs! June 2012.
  2. The accommodation was spacious and had a sea view. It’s the second time I have visited the site and I was pleased then. June 2012.
  3. We found this a fantastic base for our family - mum, dad, 13 yr old & 10 yr old boys, and 2 mad collies!! It has an enclosed garden which is perfect for letting the dogs play. The kitchen was well equipped, the property lovely and warm and with 2 en-suites I didn’t have to share a bathroom with the boys! When we were there it was lovely and quiet, but I can imagine when the cottages and campsite are full it could seem quite busy. April 2012.
  4. If you want a holiday in a beautiful area with comfortable, spotless and warm accommodation then look no further. Feb 2012.
  5. We enjoyed our stay but the lighting in the seating area was poor and it was difficult to read and would have been a real problem if we had been stuck in the cottage by bad weather. Basic cleaning OK but there was quite a bit of muck in areas not routinely cleaned. It would have been nice to have been able to push the beds properly together. Oct 2011.
  6. Excellent in every way. The flowers, biscuits and milk were a lovely surprise. Suggestion - have walking guides and/or A-Z available to look at. May 2011.
  7. Lovely and warm, very cosy, brilliant views. Oct 2010.
  8. Excellent accommodation with plenty of space and everything you might need. May 2010.
  9. It was just what we needed in the place that we needed it and we found it comfortable. Easy and quick to use central heating and lashings of lovely hot water. April 2010.
  10. Very comfortable and cosy, everything you needed in the kitchen. March 2010.
  11. Really warm, with plenty of hot water. Outside Decking area was a bonus, where you could relax in relative comfort. March 2010.
  12. Clean and warm. Milk, tin of sweets and Christmas card on arrival. Dec 2009.
  13. Well contained. All necessary facilities available. Comfortable beds but not ideal for tall people (wooden foot of bed!) Nice garden/decking area. Good open views. Would gladly return to this property. Fire escape door allowed us easy access to the Captain’s Quarters which we also hired. Sept 2009.
  14. The location of the property. The outside sitting area. The overall presentation of the property. Sept 2009.
  15. Spacious, enclosed garden and seating area. Free parking. Comfortable accommodation, super size bedrooms, good equipment in the kitchen, good entertainment equipment (tv, video & dvd). Pet friendly. July 2009.
  16. Warm and spacious and well maintained property. The flowers, milk and paper were a friendly touch on arrival. Beautiful sea view and the decking area IS private (not specified on the website). We will return. Lovely. Aug 2009.
  17. Very homely. The parking at the cottage was a great help in the area. The cottage was very warm, a big plus in March. March 2009.
  18. Excellent property, we went in February and the property was so well insulated that we rarely had to put the heating on. Good position for coastal walks, we will definitely book again. Feb 2009.
  19. The cottage was excellent. When we arrived the owner had left milk, a newspaper, flowers and biscuits, we thought this a wonderful gesture. We wanted a peaceful break and it was just great. We just wish we could have stayed longer. Nov 2008.
  20. Wonderful cosy accommodation, excellent views, good dog walks, pub in old Staithes will allow dogs in. Lovely touches, Christmas decorations, biscuits, flowers, milk, also, central heating excellent. Dec 2008.
