Reviews

First class property just as described, met by a lovely lady at the arranged time who went through the property with us. Nothing only praise for the property and surroundings, a massive well done and thank you. Excellent doesn't do it justice, perfect would be a more apt response! The cottage and the whole property in general exceeded our expectations in leaps and bounds! Liz and family are such accommodating people and made our stay so much more comfortable. We will definitely be returning in the future.Ms M Robinson - 15th February 2017
The property was of a very high standard and the owners made us very welcome. We have booked several times through Ingrid Flute and have always had exceptional service, advice and guidance and stayed at properties which wee of a high standard.Mrs M Black - 14th January 2017

Was lovely and Liz was great and very helpful, the hot tub was amazing and all the little touches Liz did, i.e. Milk coffee, bottle of bubbly chocolates, was a lovely touch, will definitely stay again.

It was perfect!!Mrs E Stanila - 12th April 2016
A great layout and decorated so well, with so much time and effort going into it. It really felt like a home to us and we were made to feel at home by the owner. The underfloor heating was a huge bonus. However, the hot tub was the star attraction and a great way to start and end the day.Mr Joseph Hewson - 7th March 2016
Absolutely fantastic property and fully equipped with everything you needMrs J Riley - 9th December 2015
Beautifully decorated!Miss H Thaxter - 21st October 2015

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.
