A single photograph of a stunning Staithes sunset inspired us to book a week's holiday there, and Driftwood Cottage was our chosen accommodation, based on Tripadvisor comments.
The cottage is compact but has light, bright accommodation over three floors: a master bedroom on the top floor with king-size bed and a built-in day bed (single) with en-suite shower room, then a twin-bedded room and family bathroom with bath on the second floor and an open plan living/dining and kitchen on the ground floor. It has been furnished and fitted out to a high standard, and was spotlessly clean and well-maintained. There are sea views from all floors too.
The location is ideal, being central to all facilities in the village, and despite my reservations about being so close to a pub, it wasn't noisy at all.
Don't be put off having to leave your car at the top of the village in a car park after you've unloaded your luggage - it's less than a ten minute walk away and we felt comfortable leaving our car there with the parking permit kindly provided.
Definitely a holiday cottage we would like to return to!
Dirftwood Cottage is THE place to stay in Staithes. It is very comfortable and presented to the highest of standards. It has everything you need to make your stay memorable. It's exceptionally clean and with a homely feel. Every detail has been carefully considered and the owners have created that true 'home from home' feel. We booked based on previous reviews and we cannot recommend the cottage highly enough. We would not hesitate to book again. You will not find a better accommodation.
What a lovely place to stay in Staithes. Right on the sea front. Super decor yet homely. Warm as toast. Topped with everything being so clean and well maintained. Couldn't ask for more exept to go again.
Many thanks for this gem of a cottage!
We stayed in Driftwood cottage over the Easter weekend and had an amazing time. The cottage is perfect and is in a fantastic location opposite the Cod and Lobster pub and just yards from the harbor. The loading bay outside the front for meant it was easy to drop off our stuff and the parking permit meant that parking was not a problem. The cottage is beautifully done out and had everything we needed for the weekend. Jacqui was really helpful and made that we had a great time, we particularly liked the Easter banner and mini eggs! We will certainly stay again and will recommend Driftwood cottage to our friends.
Stunning cottage in a superb location in the heart of Staithes. Immaculate throughout, you won't be disappointed! Ten out of ten!
