Captain Cook's Cottage
Captain Cook’s Cottage is located in the heart of Staithes, down in the harbour overlooking the sea, beach and surrounding breath-taking scenery. The cottage is fully equipped and sleeps 7 people (2 doubles and 1 triple). No pets and no smoking. Self catering.
There is excellent walking access to outdoor activities and local amenities with access to nearby Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors a short car ride. Local recommendations for activities, restaurants, pubs, beauty spots to visit, etc are available upon request.
The cottage has a comprehensive central heating system controlled by thermostat in the living room and all rooms are perfectly insulated and decorated in a traditional style to reflect the cottage’s history.
There is no parking specifically allocated to the cottage due to parking being so limited and therefore just for permanent residents. Guests can park temporarily to unload but will need to park elsewhere during the stay. We recommend Glen Vale parking which can be booked online (by visiting their website) for a reasonable cost.
The cottage is very spacious. There is a small indoor porch on the ground floor flowing through into a large living / dining area following into the fully equipped kitchen. There is also a basement safely accessible from the kitchen where cleaning facilities and beach equipment is stored for use by guests.
The first floor consists of two homely double bedrooms and a modern main bathroom. From the landing, a second staircase leads up to the 2nd floor.
On the 2nd floor landing is a comfortable sitting area with a 2nd bathroom off this area to service the 3rd bedroom consisting of 3 single beds.
