About the local area

The charming fishing village of Staithes is only five miles away and is one of the most photographed villages in Yorkshire and claims connections with Captain Cook, who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for  anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops, tea rooms and an Art Gallery, Staithes is also well known for its group of Victorian artists and art classes which are still very popular today. The famous historic town of Whitby is only six miles, with its many amenities and events that go on all year round. The Whitby tour bus is a great way to get around Whitby and see the interesting sites including the stunning Abbey and St Mary’s Church situated on the cliff top. The 1 hour cruise boats that leave the harbour regularly are a great way to appreciate the beauty of Whitby from the sea and it is an experience to remember. The pretty coastal resorts of Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Robin Hoods Bay are also well worth visiting.
