Location: Ash Cottage, named after the Whitby Yawl the William Ash, is perched on the harbour side at Staithes, about 5 metres from the water below (at high tide, that is). There are dramatic views of the harbour from the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. We are on the High Street down in the old village, opposite the butcher and 50 metres from the Cod and Lobster and Royal George pubs. Beach 75 metres.

Accommodation: Sleeps 4/5. Main bedroom has king-size double bed. Top bedroom twin 3ft beds. Attic bedroom - the landing bedroom on the top floor - 3ft single bed.

Living / Dining Room
The stylish living room at Ash Cottage boasts an oak floor, a beautiful exposed stone wall revealing dramatic herringbone-pattern stones, and Morso wood-burning stove. Two large, comfortable sofas, a dining table with chairs that can seat up to 8 people (great for entertaining friends).

On the practical side, we've replaced the heater with two new ones, and have seriously upgraded the lighting. It still has the same spectacular view of the harbour; but now you can enjoy it from a more luxurious location.

Freesat TV: 23 inch TV receiving Freesat channels - about 140 television and radio channels.

DVD player - please bring your own DVDs

Audio system. The Sony mini-system in the living room plays CDs and will connect to your phone / music player through its aux input (mini headphone size connector).  Radio stations via Freesat on TV.

Kitchen image 1

The very well equipped modern kitchen with slate floor and large work surface has a fan oven with ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. There is a good range of pots and pans, including one big enough for dealing with local crabs and lobsters if you fancy it.

Landing Bedroom
There is also a landing bedroom with a single bed, with curtains for extra privacy. Please note that the landing does not have its own door, and because the stairs lead up here this bed is not suitable for small children.

However, if you need an extra bed in the twin top floor bedroom, please ask - we may be able to help.

There is no long-stay parking down in the narrow streets of the old village - though you can wait for 40 mins.
