Sorry no smoking and no pets allowed.
Staithes is now famous for once being the home of Captain James Cook where he worked
as an assistant to the merchant William Sanderson for 18 months from 1745 and it
is hard to avoid the pull of the sea as you walk along the harbour front or explore
the beach and rock pools.
Luckily the village is well served with restaurants, bistros, cafes, pubs and coffee shops to build you up before and after exploring the area.
Inland from Staithes is the beautiful North York Moors National park with its pretty
villages and bustling market towns while just a few miles down the coast is the ancient
port of Whitby, pretty Robin Hood's Bay and the bustling resort of Scarborough.
