Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

There's nowhere else on earth quite like the North York Moors National Park. Where else can you experience a landscape where stunning moorland, ancient abbeys and picturesque villages live side by side with stunning beaches, tales of pirates and captain cook. It's a living, breathing scene that will take your breath away. Wether you want to spend your day fishing, looking in the rock pools, galloping down the beach, perfecting your golf swing, collecting fossils, cycling or eating in the world famous fish restaraunts of whitby. The north Yorkshire National Park has something for you.

A walkers paradise, the Cleveland way runs straight through the Saxon village of Staithes which is makes Atcot Cottage an ideal base for you to enjoy unrestricted access to explore some of the highest cliffs and most glorious views in england.

Climate; the east coast of england enjoys a suprisingly dry climate due to the prevailing westerly weather systems dropping the majority of their rain on the rest of the UK before reaching Staithes! This can often make for crisp clear skies in winter and warm blue skies in summer even on weekends when the forecast was perhaps less than perfect. Even if the weather lets you down with a roaring fire in the cottage and pubs, butchers, shops and restaraunts within 200m this is a destination that the weather will struggle to spoil.

Staithes

Staithes has a sheltered harbour, bounded by high cliffs and two long breakwaters. Staithes is a destination for geologists researching the Jurassic (Lias), strata in the cliffs surrounding the village where amazing fossils can often be found! In the early 1990s, a rare fossil of a seagoing dinosaur was discovered after a rockfall between Staithes and Port Mulgrave to the south. This fossil has been the focus of an ongoing project to remove the ancient bones of the creature. Port Mulgrave remains one of the best places on the northern coast to find fossils of ammonites and many visitors try their hand at fossil hunting amongst the shaly rocks on the shoreline in the hope of finding a perfect specimen.

Despite the village now being a popuar tourist destination, the traditions of the village have not died; many of the local women still wear Staithes bonnets, and the Staithes Fisher Men's Choir is still going strong. There is also an active local participation in the local RNLI Lifeboat crew who can be seen practicing each sunday morning.

The CBeebies series Old Jack's Boat, starring Bernard Cribbins is set in and filmed in Staithes, with Old Jack's House located on Cowbar Lane in the town.

Art in Staithes

The village was home to a group of twenty to thirty artists known as the "Staithes group" or the "Northern Impressionists." The group contained renowned artists such as Edward E. Anderson, Joseph R. Bagshawe, Thomas Barrett and James W. Booth and was inspired by other impressionists such as Monet, Cezanne and Renoir. Dame Laura Knight became the most famous member of the Staithes Group; she and her husband and fellow painter Harold Knight kept a studio in the village.

To celebrate this history, Staithes held a Festival of Arts and Heritage in 2012. Many houses and other properties opened their doors to the public as pop-up galleries, creating a trail through the village. In addition, events celebrating the heritage of Staithes were held. Such was the success and interest in the festival, the villagers intend to make this an annual event.[1]

Links to Captain James Cook

In 1745-1746, Staithes's most famous resident, James Cook (born in Marton near Middlesbrough), worked in Staithes as a grocer's apprentice where he first gained his passion for the sea. He moved to nearby Whitby where he joined the Royal Navy. William Sanderson's shop, where Cook worked, was destroyed by the sea, but parts were recovered and incorporated into "Captain Cook's Cottage". This has been the residency of a local Staithes family for several generations.
