“Practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Dunsley cottage is such stuff as dreams are made of. Set within a quaint cobbled street in the beautiful village of staithes it is a seaside retreat that took my breath away. The cottage is picture perfect and those simple touches such as the welcome pack make it instantly like home. Each floor has been lovingly restored and tastefully decorated to create an idyllic place to rest and relax to the songs of the seagulls. The owners were so very thoughtful in helping to organise extra touches and were so kind and accommodating. Dunsley cottage is truly special , a place that feeds the soul and we can't wait to go back .

“Wow”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Dunsley Cottage for a week and what a fantastic time we had. From the first point of contact to book, until the end of our holiday the service from the owners was second to none. The cottage was beautifully presented, extremely clean and everything was provided for you. The provision of tea, coffee and milk on arrival was very welcoming, and as for the biscuits....well delicious!
The location is superb with lots of walks from the doorstep and the surrounding area is stunning and within only a short drive from the cottage. Big bonus is the private parking for the car as Staithes has very little free parking.
A big thank you to Judy and Duncan.

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from a lovely week in Staithes, staying at the perfect Dunsley cottage. Upon arrival, we were immediately impressed by how sympathetically restored and spotlessly clean the cottage was. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and chocolates were waiting for us too - a lovely touch! Every room is decorated and finished to a high standard, helping to make our stay a 'home from home' experience. Great after a long day walking, exploring the coastline or just pottering about in the village. We will definitely be returning to Dunsley on our next stay in Staithes!

“Cosy cottage in Staithes”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This cottage is very well appointed, with many of the original features sympathetically restored. The property comprises 3 floors linked by a quite steep narrow staircase. Bottom floor is the kitchen and eating area. Full cooker, fridge, microwave, toaster and all crockery and utensils provided. A freesat tv and wifi are available and function well. Middle floor is the spacious and very comfortable bedroom. Top floor has the bathroom, toilet and lounge which has another freesat tv. Bathroom has a very efficient shower. The cottage has electric heating throughout which is very effective. An open fire is available for the colder months. Private parking is available at the top of a very steep hill, but if you are lucky, you can park on the road close to the cottage between 17:20 and 9:40. Staithes is very quiet but there are two good pubs and a couple of restaurants in the village. There are some excellent walks from this area and there is a folder containing directions for walks in the cottage.

“Wonderful Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have just got back from Staithes and i have to say Dunsley Cottage was just perfect. It has been renovated to a great standard and has all the amenities you could need. Judy the owner was brillant in getting everything organised and went out of her way to make sure we were happy.

Staithes itself is a picture perfect fishing village, if your after rest and relaxation then it's perfect.....and it has good pubs too!

I won't hesitste to recommend this cottage to friends and family.
