Cottages near Sleights United Kingdom

Staithes is a family friendly coastal town located in Scarborough, North Yorkshire about 20 miles east of Middlesbrough as the crow flies. Now possibly the biggest reason people flock to Staithes holiday cottages every year is simply the beaches. Staithes offers a traditionally British seaside holiday with shop fronted promenades, great summer weather and fish and chips. The beach looks out onto the sheltered harbour with a stunning backdrop of the surrounding cliffs.

The surrounding cliffs create brilliant opportunities for coastal walks with great views of the ocean and the towns below, but there are also seemingly endless walking opportunities in Staithes as it is located within the North Yorkshire Moors, a national park and the largest expanse of heather moorland in the United kingdom. From sea to sand and mountains to hills, if you enjoy scenic walks, Staithes holiday accommodation could just be what you're looking for.

In terms of modern history, Staithes is reasonably young, however, the cliffs have been of geological and palaeontological interest for many years to many people. Since a rockfall in Staithes cliffs, the site has undergone much research and has attracted fossil hunters from all over. Fossil hunting trips are also available to tourists. The nearby town of Hinderwell which lies less than 2 miles from Staithes also receives popularity as one of the best places for fossil hunting on the northern coast of England. So if you're on the rare chance you happen to be a fossil collector, then Staithes holiday cottages could be ideal for you.
