Like home from home What a fantastic gem of a cottage, the owners have really made sure that you have everything you need to make your stay as pleasant as possible, we found this cottage very homely.... the front door is only 6 steps away from the local pub and just a few mins walk to a very beautiful harbour that looks like it's off a postcard, we stayed for a week and it has to be said the big bed in the main bedroom is so comfy it's like sleeping in the clouds I've never had such a good nights sleep since I was 14 years old !! This cottage really is a credit to you and we will certainly be booking again many thanks xx Downwindderek 2017-05-21
Quaint clean & cosy cottage, Picturesque village, friendly locals, very dog friendly, would love to stay again! We stayed at Safe Harbour cottage from 5th to 12th May 2017 as an opportunity for a "chill out" together in advance of Mums 77th birthday and we loved it!
Myself, my Husband, my Mum & our large dog where very comfortable in this quaint cottage decorated with a beech hut feel and it had everything we needed. Other reviews had mentioned concerns about electrics/safety which was a worry, but we had no issues. The bathroom heater is simply on a safety timer that you press on for the desired time and the storage heaters just had advisory notes to warn that they get hot (Obviously) and not to cover - As an ex fire safety advisor I had no concerns and we were nice and cosy.
The Super King Sized bed was a real treat and we loved the fact that the bathroom had separate shower and bath which was great for getting ready in a hurry!
Mum slept like a log in the second double room, not only 'cos it was comfy but also because of all the fresh air & exercise and the great local pub food.
The Village itself is wonderful, so very pretty and traditional and the locals where really friendly - everyone says good morning which is sweet and advises you where to go and see and there are a couple of sweet tea rooms and vintage shops etc and the welcome pack provided at the cottage is really helpful too.
The nearest pub "The George" is literally 10 paces across the road (or 8 if you really fancy a pint) which was fatal as my Hubby loves his real ale and Mum & I really enjoyed the large portions of traditional pub grub. The Cod & Lobster just a wee stroll near at the Harbour was my fav' as I adored their seafood options presented to a very high standard.
We had mixed weather during our stay but that did not take the shine of Staithes which looks beautiful in the glorious sunshine and dramatic in blustery weather - Loads of photos taken!!! So, we had a cosy day in on the Monday with a roaring fire, old movies and jigsaw puzzles - "Old School". We felt like we where staying at a friends house!
It's so well located we had day trips out to Bridlington, Scarbourough, Whitby and the not to be missed delightful Robin Hoods Bay.
The whole area is very hilly indeed and is wonderful for robust walks and despite awaiting a knee replacement Mum managed very well generally and just took it bit at a time - every pause for breath is a photo opportunity anyway!
We were able to take good advantage of the free parking (permit provided) at the top of the hill and could just nip down in the car and collect her if she was struggling as there's 20 mins loading/parking just opposite - I mention this as people with mobility restrictions can be accommodated if planned around!
Out of all of us though I think our dog Hector had the absolute best time - He walked so much that I think his legs are about an inch shorter. Staithes is Doggy Heaven - we saw everything from Jack Russells to Mastiffs and all got along famously. Everywhere is dog friendly with water bowls provided by almost all venues. I'm a sucker for the beech and it was my delight to run with "my Boy" at half past nine at night on the sand and thru the waves as the sun was setting - it just felt so free!
We packed so much into the week we felt we'd been away for a fortnight - Would we go again? ABSOLUTELY! cruisecrew12 2017-05-15
Cosy Friendly Cottage Lovely cozy, welcoming and well appointed cottage. Ideal for the beautiful old fishing village and quaint harbour. Comfortable beds and friendly atmosphere. Lovely food across the road at the Royal George - huge helpings and Theakstons Old Peculiar on tap. Heaven!
Only 2 grumbles (neither of which the owners can do anything about):-
(1) Shower is very cramped and would be no use for "larger" folk.
(2) Seagulls set up a dreadful din on nearby roof-tops from about 3.30am onwards. Ugghh! If I lived locally I would need to consider measures to "move" them on! Mark S 2017-05-15
Great location, cosy cottage but a little tired Staithes is a lovely seaside village and Safe Harbour is in a great spot, just a short walk to the sea but nestled among quaint cottages. The first floor is quite spacious but downstairs is smaller, with a rather cramped living area. The decor is somewhat tired in places, especially the bathroom. However, the cottage is cosy and comfortable.
We were surprised that there was no welcome pack of any kind, not even a pint of milk and a few tea bags. On the plus side, the housekeeper and handyman live just across the road and responded immediately when necessary.
Great wi fi! junee59 2016-04-22
Beautiful Cottage, the comfiest bed I have ever slept on and an amazing location. I could not have asked for a better place to stay - we will definitely be returning! The village is so friendly and welcoming - our best break this year! Mrs Perry 2015-11-03
