Hi Lucy, I am so glad I came across your lovely website as we are visiting Staithes tomorrow from Lancashire (16th April) for a 5-day break and now I cannot wait! I have booked a little cottage on the cliff top at Cowbar and your gorgeous photos and colourful descriptions really have confirmed my choice!
Thank you again

My 8th great grandfather a Verrill, lived in Staithes and on a recent visit spoke to locals and upon hearing I was related to the Verrill's from the 1600's said, "Oh your'e a local then". I now live in Australia so to be accepted as a local made me feel as though I was home again.


HEY! I visited there about five years ago! It's a long, long way from my home in Utah USA!


We stayed in Staithes in 2008 (Me, Hubby, 4 kids in tow) on our 6 month European adventure. You are quite right about the feeling of wanting to return. It's an absolutely gorgeous place.

It is always a pleasure to trail round me at home, of attractive things and attractive photos even if I speak only about some words of English!


I soooooo want to go!! Love the little houses esp the one with the red front door! Love red doors!


Waouh! what a lovely place....
Hello from Paris.


Lovely, lovely, lovely! I love reading your descriptions of your trips because your happiness almost jumps out of my computer screen. I reckon it must be about 30 odd years since I was last in Staithes. I could barely remember it. It looks utterly beautiful. You were so lucky with the weather too. The North Sea is looking almost like the Med! Thanks for sharing with us. x


Thank you Lucy for sharing these pictures. I love seeing other places on this lovely earth! I can't imagine living on the sea.


Oh, my! I am planning on visiting this area in August and HAVE to visit Staithes now. It looks dreamy... Thank you for telling us about it.


Beautiful! Your photos have made me realise how much I'm longing to see the sea!


What a dreamscape. I hope you are able to return again soon.


Oh I want to go, it looks so pretty.


Lovely, lovely....wish I were there!

: )


Pretty place. Reminds me a lot of Lyme Regis. I go there every year for a week with my dad and my two children - become traditional now. This year we discovered a seafront cafe with v.g. coffee and cakes too - only we were there in February and you have to sit there wrapped up in winter coats/scarves and gloves... you appreciate the sunshine even more then!


I love your photos of Staithes and having Googled I now know where it is and must do the seaside towns in Yorkshire. I've only been to Scarborough and to Flamborough Head so far in the 18 months I've lived in Yorkshire. I do miss the coast. Pleased that you and yours had a lovely time with the caravan.


How lovely England is! I would love to visit....maybe someday. Lucy, I was recently rambling 'round the web and came upon www.redheart.com and discovered a crocheted throw pattern that reminded me instantly of YOU....it's called "Pokey Dots Throw", number WR2107...wonderful colorful circles within circles. Hope you like it as much as I do.....
Sincerely, Carol


Staithes is a place I want to visit again, my husband proposed to me there about 5.5 yrs ago!

What a dream vacation!!!!


Simply beautiful!


I need, I want and I must have a holiday there! How picturesque. The material dreams are made of. I've been mesmerised by part 2! :)


It looks lovely! My mum followed a link from my sidebar to here and said that she thinks your blog is lovely - she would have commented herself but couldn't make the comments section work.

I just can't get enough of the old quaintness of your country. There are so many 'new' places here, and they just plain lack the charm of an old place...


What a charming place to stay. How delightful to have breakfast by the sea.
It is just so sweet of you to share your lovely Connievan vacation with us.


Thank you so much for taking me along on these wonderful trips to such beautiful places I'll probably never see :)
