Area Information

Cowbar
Cowbar is a picturesque hamlet tucked under the Cliff Nab connected with the village of Staithes by a footbridge. It is popular with artists, photographers and birdwatchers. Cowbar is an ideal base to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Coast and Moors.

The neighbouring village of Staithes is a pretty, traditional fishing village with bundles of charm located 10 miles north of Whitby and offers an idyllic location for holidaymakers visiting the seaside. The village boasts some of the narrowest cobbled streets in the north and is connected with ginnels, nooks and winding streets. There is plenty to see and do with pubs, cafes, shops, art galleries and a fish smokehouse. The village hosts real ale and jazz festivals during the year and the September Arts Festival is becoming a very popular event which attracts many visitors. For those fancying taking to the waters there are regular boat trips to Whitby from Staithes. There are many walks around the area along the cliff tops and through to Whitby, it is an ideal location for any holidaymaker.

For more information on Cowbar and Staithes and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Coast Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
