“Lovely cottage, relaxing stay.”
Reviewed 16 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Lovely cottage, lovely village, nice beer.
Suffice to say if I had a rental cottage it would be EXACTLY like Dunsley and I would
manage it EXACTLY like Judy does.
Fantastic attention to detail and communication.
Book with confidence

“Absolutely perfect property for a short stay”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Dunsley to celebrate my wife's Birthday.
Right from the very first contact we had with the owners, their help and enthusiasm was exceptional.
A romantic retreat.
The property catered for every comfort, all the home comforts and attention to detail you could ask for.
The cottage is decorated and furnished to a high standard.
Immaculately cleaned inside and out.
The parking, a short distance away a bonus particularly with the new sedum covered out building with seating to watch the glorious sunsets
The cottage sited in a good spot and not too far from anywhere really within the quaint town.
If you don't fancy cooking there is two good warm welcoming pubs and a host of tea rooms
The town is very peaceful and an ideal retreat for a romantic break or just to really chill out !!!!
For those who wish to venture out there are breathtaking views on the many walks.
All in all a superb break and will be back

“Just Perfect!”

We arrived as 2 weary travellers and left refreshed and invigorated.

The cottage is very welcoming, cosy, very comfortable with good quality bed linen and furnishings being supplied. It is split over 3 levels which means you do need to be good on the stairs. We found the hill into Staithes very steep to walk up on the first day but each day it became easier but it is something to be mindful of if you suffer from poor mobility. The village is beautiful and the cottage is situated right in the middle making it an ideal choice. The owners have left nothing to chance and gave us heaps of information which really made all the difference. Wonderful stay, thank you very much.

“Practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Dunsley cottage is such stuff as dreams are made of. Set within a quaint cobbled street in the beautiful village of staithes it is a seaside retreat that took my breath away. The cottage is picture perfect and those simple touches such as the welcome pack make it instantly like home. Each floor has been lovingly restored and tastefully decorated to create an idyllic place to rest and relax to the songs of the seagulls. The owners were so very thoughtful in helping to organise extra touches and were so kind and accommodating. Dunsley cottage is truly special , a place that feeds the soul and we can't wait to go back .

“Wow”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Dunsley Cottage for a week and what a fantastic time we had. From the first point of contact to book, until the end of our holiday the service from the owners was second to none. The cottage was beautifully presented, extremely clean and everything was provided for you. The provision of tea, coffee and milk on arrival was very welcoming, and as for the biscuits....well delicious!
The location is superb with lots of walks from the doorstep and the surrounding area is stunning and within only a short drive from the cottage. Big bonus is the private parking for the car as Staithes has very little free parking.
A big thank you to Judy and Duncan.

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from a lovely week in Staithes, staying at the perfect Dunsley cottage. Upon arrival, we were immediately impressed by how sympathetically restored and spotlessly clean the cottage was. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and chocolates were waiting for us too - a lovely touch! Every room is decorated and finished to a high standard, helping to make our stay a 'home from home' experience. Great after a long day walking, exploring the coastline or just pottering about in the village. We will definitely be returning to Dunsley on our next stay in Staithes!
