Pennysteel Cottage - Staithes - TS13 5BN




Pennysteel Cottage is located in the beautiful fishing village of Staithes in North Yorkshire, where the young Captain Cook started his career. It is an old fisherman’s cottage dating back to 1800 overlooking Staithes’ picturesque harbour.

The oak beamed and wood panelled cottage is set in the heart of the village, and has breathtaking views over the harbour from every room and from its sun terrace. It has managed to retain much of its original character.

The cottage is situated only 20 yards from a local public house which serves excellent bar meals. The village also boasts two other pubs, two cafés including a restaurant, as well as the Captain Cook Museum, art gallery, gift and craft shops and a local shop selling almost everything you could possible require for your stay!

The village is famous for its Staithes School of Painting and the artistic heritage of the village is much in evidence.

Its cobbled streets and numerous winding, narrow alleyways meandering between the stone built cottages, and its sandy beach and rocky pools, make Staithes a unique and perfect holiday location. Situated in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park it has spectacular cliff-top footpaths, making it an excellent base for touring the North Yorkshire coastline, including Whitby (11 miles away); Robin Hood’s Bay and Scarborough. Travelling inland the visitor soon arrives in the Yorkshire Moors and ‘Heartbeat Country’ with its centre in Goathland, through which the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway passes.
