Property Description

View of harbour


The Anchorage is a picturesque fisherman’s cottage, in an enviable, south-facing position right on the quayside in the pretty fishing village of Staithes. This holiday cottage boasts the most wonderful views across the harbour and into the bay, the perfect place to sit and relax. The property is tucked snugly underneath the cliffs which rise to the rear. This well-equipped and cosy property is furnished to a very good standard, retaining much character with many delightful features and charming paintings of Staithes.


There is vehicular access and parking for 2 cars outside the property (for which permits are provided), a rare commodity in Staithes.


Staithes is tucked into a cleft of rock which forms a natural harbour in this rugged path of coastline north of Whitby. This is an excellent base from which to explore the North Yorkshire Moors and the coast, and is renowned amongst walkers. The famous Cleveland Way on the cliff side is very close by, from which beautiful walks and views can be enjoyed.


The beach, renowned for its fossil hunting, is on your doorstep, and the village, with its cobbled streets, restaurants/tea shops and art gallery, is an enchanting place to discover.


Staithes has historical, seafaring connections, and Captain James Cook, discoverer of Australia, lived in Staithes between 1745-46 working as a grocer’s apprentice, and this is where he first gained his passion for the sea.


The town has a long association with artists, who have flocked here since the 1900s, whereupon a group formed, known as the ‘Staithes group of artists’, including Laura Knight and George Wetherill (the ’Turner’ of the north). Countless artists have and still do visit Staithes regularly and find inspiration among the huddled cottages, winding paths, towering cliffs and wild seas. This association with art is still strong, with painting breaks and tuition held in the village. To celebrate this history, each September residents open up their houses displaying local artists work for the public to see.


The children’s CBEEBIES programme ‘Old Jack’s Boat’, featuring Bernard Cribbins and his dog Salty, is set and filmed in Staithes - a very exciting prospect for the younger visitors to the town! Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
