Flither Cottage is named after the hard working and fearless Flither Girls who spent their lives climbing the perilous rocks and surrounding cliffs that stretch from Staithes to Flamborough in search of limpets. This delightful cosy 19th-century, terraced fisherman’s cottage is set in a quaint old part of the traditional fishing village, where cobbled streets and a maze of ginnels and alleyways are lined with colourful little cottages.
Staithes is home to a Captain Cook Museum, several pubs serving homemade food and real ales, bistros, an art gallery and quaint little tea rooms where friendly locals wait to greet you, it is almost like stepping back in time. There is a beautiful beach area set below the towering cliffs just a short walk away and you can still watch the local fishermen heading out to sea. Keep your eyes open for regular visits from marine life such as seals and marine birds.
Set on the coastal edge of the North York Moors National Park there are plenty of villages and countryside to explore, as well as many cycle paths to enjoy. The Cleveland Way hugs the coast north and south from Saltburn to Whitby, passing through Staithes, where the energetic can pick up the footpath for a bracing walk into beautiful Runswick Bay.
The bustling town of Whitby is just 11 miles away and well worth a visit with a myriad of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the famous Whitby Abbey and the 199 steps. With festivals and events all year round there is always something happening in Whitby, from Goth festivals to a Regatta and live music events. Take a steam train ride on the North York Moors Railway and head back in time to Goathland, better known as Aidensfield from TV’s Heartbeat. Saltburn-by-the-Sea is fast becoming popular as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Whitby, with its water balanced cliff lift, a gem of Victorian engineering, long golden sands and pier stretching out to sea. There’s plenty of places to eat and drink after working up an appetite on the beach, or try your hand at surfing at one of the surf schools. Whether you want to visit the seaside or moorside, there is something for everyone in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire. Beach 250 yards. Shop 50 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
