Greystones, Staithes, North Yorkshire (Sleeps 1-9)

Greystones is a wonderful self catering holiday home that can accommodate 9 people. It dates back to the late 17th Century and can be found in the village of Staithes in North Yorkshire. It was once a local inn called the Golden Lion and the old pub sign can just be made out above the front door.

Inside, the holiday home is cosy yet spacious. It has been tastefully decorated and furnished in a relaxing but fresh style. There are some special points of interest such as the huge old ship’s timber built into the exposed stone wall in the dining area, an old range in the snug and intriguing arrangement of staircases going to different parts of the house. The pretty open fire in the lounge adds a touch of romance too.

The whole house is well equipped to be comfortable and practical with extras such as a high-quality dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, sound systems, TVs, DVDs and internet access.

Our holiday home has 5 bedrooms and there are 3 bathrooms shared between them. Special effort has gone into ensuring each guest has a good night’s sleep so you will find the bedrooms have large beds, pocket sprung mattresses and superior quality pillows and variable weight duvets.

There is a cosy lounge, the snug and a good sized, well equipped dining kitchen provides plenty of space where everyone can eat and relax together.

The pretty village of Staithes has plenty of unique character and a historic ambience. Step out onto the cobbled street and you are only 100 metres from the safe little beach and the harbour, passing two pubs, several cafes, a critically acclaimed fish restaurant, a great art gallery and a range of useful and interesting small shops on the way! Opposite the house is a pathway between the tightly packed houses leading down to the beck where Staithes’ few remaining fishermen moor their colourful boats.

There is plenty of interest for the whole family in the village itself and the ever popular coastal town of Whitby is just 11 miles to the south, providing a wide range of things to see and do for all ages.
