What to Expect

This recently renovated 18th century fisherman’s cottage is just 66ft away from the harbour beach of historic Staithes.

Tucked away on a quiet passage it has a distinct nautical theme and provides spacious comfortable accommodation for up to four guests and one pet.

Staithes is postcard pretty with its colourful cottages, Bramla being one of those, and lanes with quirky shops with names such as Betsy & Bo, Cobbles, Chapel Yard Stores, and The Blue Jacket. Beyond the vibrant Staithes quayside lies a strip of Jurassic coast that includes Runswick Bay, an award-winning beach that offers everything from bracing dips to kayak fishing.

Things To Do in Staithes

Start your holiday off exploring the harbour front, cobbled lanes and alleyways that lead from it. There are a couple of good pubs such as the Captain Cook and Cod and Lobster. The Captain Cook is famous for its homemade steak and ale pie and has its own ale, Northern Navigator, a dark bitter, made by the North Yorkshire Brewery in nearby Redcar. The Cod and Lobster specialises in seafood dishes such as the pan fried freshly caught cod with a lobster bisque.

From the village’s small beach you can watch the boats come and go and one of these is sure to be All My Sons, Sean Baxter’s vessel that takes birdwatchers and anglers 10 miles out to sea to experience the waters off the North Yorkshire coast. Yorkshire Coast Nature charters All My Sons for serious twitcher tours where they look out for rare seabirds such as Corey’s Shearwater. Sean’s Fins, Feathers and Fish excursions last anything from an hour to six hours. Whales, bottlenose dolphins, puffins and their pufflings, razorbills and gannets are regularly spotted on these trips. If you are keen on fishing then Sean provides all the equipment necessary to catch mackerel, cod and pollock.

Runswick, a fishing village to rival Staithes’ charms lies three miles down the coast, and the ace up its sleeve is its glorious golden sandy bay and pristine waters that have earned it the Sunday Times’ Britain’s Best Beach award 2020. If you are keen on learning how to kayak or paddleboard then Barefoot Kayak will show you how. Coastguard volunteer Andy Monaghan is an experienced outdoor education instructor. His business partner Peter McGarth offers regular fossil hunting tours that are especially popular with the younger set. Part of the Jurassic coast about a mile as the seagull flies is Kettleness where a dinosaur skeleton was discovered that now takes pride of place in the Natural History Museum in London.

Last Word

Bramla is perfect for a family of four or a small group of friends who are keen on discovering the wonders of the North Yorkshire coastline. Its peaceful position off the bustling harbour of Staithes gives you R&R without being remote.

An added bonus is that this period property has been refurbished to provide a home-from-home. The quirky sunken kitchen comes mod-cons such as a washing machine and dishwasher, and even an essentials hamper. Upstairs the bedrooms have plenty of storage space and come with considerate extras such as make-up mirrors. Although there is no alfresco dining space the scenic quayside and beach is only a minute walk from the front door.

The village at the base of three majestic cliffs is family orientated without all the bells and whistles of more commercial coastal destinations. In the place of amusement arcades there’s a fascinating heritage centre; instead of tacky takeaways there are trips out to sea to hook and cook your own supper, and instead of seaside rock there’s rockpools to explore and fossil foraging.
