One of a small group of four cottages, Acorn Cottage has been converted from the old barns adjacent to the owner's country house and retains much of the original character and charm. The cottage has a wonderful cosy atmosphere, with original beams on display and providing the structure for the gallery bedroom. The finish is to a very high standard with quality fittings and fixtures throughout including granite worktops in the kitchen and bathroom.
There is a shared games room which includes a 3/4 size snooker table, table tennis, table football and many books, board games and DVDs. The owners can provide special event dinners in the house along with guided walks in the area. Tai Chi lessons and personal tuition available.

Property was gorgeous and exactly as featured. The setting was tranquil and beautiful. The area offered lots to do no matter what the weather.Mrs D Smith - 14th August 2016
Had a brilliant birthday weekend. The cottage is just perfect for a few days away and the use of the field made it even better. Lovely walk on the beach and on the coastal path to Whitby. Thank you for cakes and jam too.Joe and Gary Williams - 4th November 2015
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 Staithes and the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Coast Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
