About the locationSTAITHESWhitby 10 miles.The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
homely cottage by Liz A on August 7th 2016
Very well appointed cottage. Had everything we needed for a weeks holiday.. One down side was no washing machine, If travelling with young children this could be a hinderance.. Cottage is in a beautiful, quiet rural village, very peaceful. right next door is the only pub in the village(great food). River cottage was very clean with lovely decor, beds were very comfortable The cottage has wifi, which is an additional cost..Also you dont get a mobile phone signal, but there is a payphone in the house and the pub, so it is not really too much of a problem.

A lovely cosy cottage with everything you needed for a break away.
by Ms Purnell on August 16th 2015
The cottage was so clean and they had thought of everything, it was well worth the money. If you rent this cottage go to Runswick Bay, what a place.

by Mrs Wall on October 16th 2014
River Cottage is very well decorated though out, comfortable furnishing with nice homely touches. We need not have worried about the noise from the pub next door, they were very considerate, we never heard any noise at the end of the evening and we enjoyed a few drinks and a meal there during our stay which we can recommend.

Good Location by Pokla on September 20th 2014
River Cottage is in a quiet location ideal if you want to totally switch off as no mobile phone coverage. Next door to a quiet country pub offering good food. However if you have disabilities the double bed which is on the floor would not suit you as you cannot get up or down my wife and I ended up sleeping separate still having to put two single mattresses on one bed for her to manage. The shower over bath could be difficult as no holding rail to assist. The seater settee very low and if you sat on it even lower as was bed settee you disapeared in it. The cottage smelt damp on arrival but once heating on it was OK. Some of the crockery was chipped, oven dishes cracked and frying pans not nice so didn't use could do with throwing away. With just a little upgrade this place could be really comfortable and a place to return to.
by Mr Dale on August 27th 2014
Fantastic location within easy reach of all the areas sights and attractions.Very comfortable and cosy property very well equipped and tastefully decorated to a very high standard.Located next to a brilliant country pub was a bonus!
Lovely! by TDCPCC on April 19th 2014
A really lovely cottage. Well equipped and cosy we felt very at home here. Some nice touches too with things like magazines and books for all to read. For us the only thing that let it down was the pub next door which aside from being very unfriendly towards us also created a large amount of noise on one of the nights with noisy loud smokers underneath our windows until the early hours. Aside from this we loved the location and the locals were so friendly we would definitely return.

by Ms O'Hanlon on January 1st 2014
The cottage was in a lovely location, quiet yet adjacent to the local pub. A ten minute walk on Staithes meant we had a wider choice of eating and drinking establishments. Overall a lovely stay.
by Mrs Kelly on October 11th 2013
Lovely area and friendly people, lots to do and easy to get around even used public transport on a number of occassions. Excellent pub next door with first class cooking. Very quiet area and beautiful scenery.

Beautiful cottage could not fault anything.
Great cottage, superbly equiped, good location. by A FlipKey verified reviewer on July 25th 2013
It was very easy to book and access the cottage. We loved the cottage, comfortable, really well equiped and well heated.The locatiion is ideal to visit the coastal resorts, an easy walk int Staithes and conveient for the North York Moors. We liked the cleanliness and high standard of fittings and furniture.
by Ms Chambers on July 8th 2013
Ideally situated for our itinerary, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable.
A little hidden gem by newtownlin on July 6th 2013
A delightful holiday cottage, extremely well equipped, and although next to the local pub, quiet and peaceful. The meals served were excellent although the only problem was that they stopped serving at 7.30.p.m. but there are plenty of options for eating out, the fish and chips near the pier at Saltburn and The Ship Inn at Saltburn are worth putting on your list. The cottage is ideally placed for Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Moors, etc. We used the cottage as a base for playing golf in the Redcar area and it was ideal. We would certainly recommend River Cottage for a quiet and relaxing stay.
by Mrs Lloyd on July 1st 2013
Lovely area and lovely cottage. Fantastic break away!
by Mr Finch on June 27th 2013

by Mr Appleton on May 28th 2013
Excellent cottage in a good location, lots of lovely places to visit.
Fantastic! by ajb1981_sidcup on May 12th 2013
Had a short break at River Cottage (3 nights) in early May. Thoroughly relaxing time and the cottage was beautifully appointed. Immaculately clean and good quality fixtures and fittings. Owners were a pleasure to deal with (my wife handled that!). They provided a high chair and travel cot for our 5 month old and a bottle of wine for the adults! Lovely location, pub friendly next door and the guest book revealed a good menu although we didn't eat there. Ideal spot to explore the Cleveland Coast - you can walk to Staithes, close to Whitby, Guisborough, North York Moors attractions, Robin Hoods Bay etc. No mobile signal was a blessing!
by Mr Beattie on May 5th 2013
This was by far the best cottage we have stayed in. The standard was excellent and the owner has thought of everything. We would definitely stay here again.
Idyllic by M4PEY on January 14th 2013
We went for a Christmas break, from the South the journey is normally 5 hours, however this was a bad day to travel on, i think we went on the 22nd Dec, the journey was 8 hours of stop and start traffic with a rammed full car and the kids in the back. So we got there in the dark all hungry and tired and in need of stretching our legs. We opened the door and hoped it would be nice, well, WOW, it was the cleanest holiday cottage we have had in the north east, there was a very welcome bottle of wine in the fridge and the Christmas tree was up with the lights on and a few lamps on around the house, it was beautiful !!! all mod cons very modern and up to date decor, everything was so clean. the area so blissfully peaceful, the pub next door like a step back in time but thats how these pubs should be, very friendly locals and landlady made us very welcome, especially on Christmas day while we had our turkey cooking next door we popped in for a drink. Totally reccomend this cottage and will be coming again. Two slight criticisms, would of been good to have a washing machine, more so if we had been staying for two weeks, andthe sofas, not the most comfortable especially the sofa bed extremely painful thing to sit in. But wold not put us off coming again, it was a superb first class, five star Cottage and location.
by Mr Turner on October 30th 2012
We particularly liked the quiet location and it was nice to pop next door for a drink.
a little gem by A FlipKey verified reviewer on September 5th 2012
everything about this cottage is excellent, from it's comfort to its location. each room is well appointed and althought the garden area is small, it is more than adequit complete with patio table, chairs and bbq. the cottage was clean and the furnishings very good, there are two bedrooms one with a doublke and the other slightly smaller with twin beds. the location is very good, and handy for the moors and close to the coast. the pub next door is a bonus,the landlord and landlady make you very welcome, really good beer prices and the meals excellent. this cottage is a real gem and i would recommend.
by Mrs Tume on August 12th 2012
The setting of River Cottage is superb for exploring the area. Beautifully decorated and furnished, a real home from home.
by Tebay on August 6th 2012
We enjoyed the relaxed away from it all atmosphere, whilst being only a short distance from moors, coast, Whitby and Staithes.
by Mr Lilley on July 24th 2012
The cottage was well presented and it delivered what it said in the brochure. The location of the pub and the welcome given by the owners was excellent.

The property was exactly as described which is not always the case, and it was clear that the owners had gone the 'extra mile' to ensure that visitors felt comfortable and welcome.
by Mr Hutson on October 18th 2010
Cottage was as described, a relaxing quiet break in a beautiful part of the country.
