“A perfect weekend retreat! Just what we were looking for, homely, cosy and the perfect location. A beautiful home which is tastefully decorated in all things nautical. We gad a wonderful stay in Staithes. Highly recommend the sunrise up the hill for the best views over the village – simply stunning! Nice pub grub at the Cod & Lobster and the Royal George – reasonably priced, cosy, friendly pubs. We also did a coastal walk from the village, along the cliff tops to Runswick Bay. Beautiful walk with plenty of pubs to stop at on the way home! Would love to come back."

“Had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday here in Staithes. Ravenscraig House is the perfect holiday home, we had everything we could possibly need. Can highly recommend The Ellerby Country Inn, just a few minutes down the road. Excellent food and a much quieter atmosphere than the pubs in the village. We went for our anniversary meal and were not disappointed. All in all, we have had an absolutely wonderful holiday and are looking forward to coming back next summer."
