A holiday in Staithes: April 2007

Here are a few of our favourite places from a week's post-Easter break in Staithes, on the beautiful Yorkshire coast.

First, the town. You'll find our location by clicking here - it's a few miles north of Whitby, and Robin Hood's Bay & Scarborough are a bit further south still.

Not for the faint-hearted or seriously out-of-condition, there is virtually no parking, so you leave the car in the car park (a bit expensive if you didn't know about it - it cost us £27 for a six-day stay) at the top of a 1 in 4 hill! (You can get down into the village to unload - just - but it's a slightly nerve-wracking experience on the cobbles, and the turning place by the beach is not that large...) This shows the hill from the top looking down, and from the bottom looking up:

But it's worth it when you reach the top.
