With a view of the harbour forming a backdrop, cast your eyes over the splendid sight you behold. Perched on the northerly headland of Cowbar Nab like precarious birds nests high on the cliffs is the of a small collection of cottages forming the hamlet of Cowbar, clinging to the southerly headland of Penny Nab as if for dear life, is the main village of Staithes.
Staithes has all the charm of a place lost in time, this small North Yorkshire fishing village gives the appearance of having grown out of the cliffs, the villages of Staithes and Cowbar are divided in two by staithes beck, a small river that has carved a route from the moors to the sea.
