Reviews

We stayed at Thornwick Cottage for the Staithes Arts Festival - great central position in the village. Very spacious, and had everything we required. Made good use of the log burner, although not cold in the cottage, it was a lovely treat for the evenings - appreciated the logs left in the basket for us to start with. Staithes is absolutely lovely- loads of history- everyone so friendly and helpful. Fantastic coastal walks on your doorstep. The harbour is great place to be around. Staithes has good links to the local bus service, so you do not need to use the car. Our stay allowed us to get away from the noisy rush of everyday life and just enjoy Yorkshire.
