Staithes is a quaint working fishing village that has been designated as a conservation village, due to its unique character and is within the National Park. Its cobbled streets and narrow alleyways reflect its rugged past. With its own small sandy beach, welcoming pubs and cliff top walks, no wonder its refered to as "a bit of cornwall in Yorkshire". It is the perfect base for walking, touring and exploring the coast and North Yorkshire Moors. Whitby is only 9 miles, Scarborough is 35 minutes by car and Heartbeat Country is all around. The Cleveland Way passes through this unique conservation village and stunning cliff top walks are straight out of the front door.

You can wander through woods, saunter through picturesque villages of honey sandstone, throw pebbles in a stream or build sandcastles on the beach. All around are the signs of past generations, historic abbeys, embattled castles, churches, crosses, ancient routes. Jurassic geology is perhaps second to none and particulaly good around Staithes. Here the Father of English Geology made his discoveries and at the coast you can see dinosaur footprints and search for fossils as he may have done. Explore the Yorkshire Heritage Coast, from sandy beaches to working harbours and brightly coloured fishing boats. From imposing abbeys to quaint coastal villages, and from bustling seafood markets to the UK’s most delicious fish and chips, this is the stunning Yorkshire Coast.
