A stunning view of Staithes in North-Yorkshire overlooking the cottage rooftops. This timeless view of the old fishing port is one of my best views in Northern England and I'll never tire of it.

I visit Staithes in North-Yorkshire quite often as it's only an hours drive away for me and I much prefer a visit here than the busy tourist hot-spots of Whitby and other coastal villages. Whenever I do visit - I always do the short walk across the river and up Cowbar Bank to see the brilliant view above. However, even when the High Street and beach is really busy - not many people seem to make the walk up Cowbar Bank to this stunning vantage point of the Staithes cottages. So I thought I would do this little blog post to help visitors to Staithes see this sight for themselves!

I've highlighted on this aerial map exactly where the photo of Staithes at the top of this page was taken - at the end of the arrow in the above image. It is quite easy to get to if you are able to walk up the little bank for a few minutes. Simple head for the bridge over the river near Staithes Gallery, and take a left up Cowbar Bank!

In this photo, taken on the bridge, you can see the vantage point in the top right of the photo, where you will also find a nice little bench to catch your breath :-)

Here you can see how steep Cowbar Bank is and what you are in for!

And this is the treat at the end of the little walk - A stunning view of Staithes in North-Yorkshire overlooking the cottage rooftops. Some may think it's taken with a drone but it really is quite accessible! If ever you visit Staithes - make sure you pay a visit to this view point and admire this quaint old fishing village! 



Save this image to your phone as a little reminder for your visit to Staithes!
