Trudie helped us to find our way around the town with great advice where to walk and eat. Trudie looked after us extremely well with super updated accommodation which was relaxing especially the sitting room to chill out as well as the cosy bedrooms with great views of Staithes. The tasty and big breakfasts filled us up for the day and the teashop below with scrumptious cakes was a great treat. We are looking forward to coming back soon.
Trudy is Dotty and Dotty is Trudy!

We have some lovely friends who find lovely B&Bs try them out then recommend them, so long as they are lovely. And so, it came to pass that following their visit and full and graphical description of their lovely stay we agreed to visit Dotty’s B&B for our friends birthday treat.
Although we had that now, all to familiar worry, will it be Covid safe, we were assured it would be and set off for a grand night out. We were travelling from the Yorkshire Dales, our friends from the North West. When we arrived it was absolutely chucking it down, and we discovered you have to park out of the village (Staithes) then walk down to Dotty’s with our cases.
So, we togged up and proceeded from the ‘top car park (well named) to the village 1/2 mile below. Our meeting point was Dotty’s cafe for hot drinks and welcome bacon butties. We sat outside in isolated safety and was served our drinks and snacks by a lovely lady. Our friends arrived and explained that this was our B&B as well as our coffee stop.
We left our bags with our hostess who was already going out of her way to be ‘ helpful and endearing’ person of the year.
We did a great 8.5 mile walk, along the costal path to Runswick bay, and back through the almost deserted woods running parallel to the now ‘disappeared’ railway. Luckily as we left the tea room the rain stopped and we never saw it again.
We then entered our accommodation via back outside stairs to find ourselves in a ground floor huge lounge. This was the lounge dining room, newly decorated with 2 huge leather sofas. Certainly enough space to be distant if required from the only other couple staying, if you don’t know them, that is.
Bizarrely when you looked out of the front windows you were on the third floor not the ground floor. That’s what happens when you build a house in a cliff!
Now, it was Dotty Trudy’s time to shine as B&B hostess extraordinaire. We ordered....well, almost anything we wanted for breakfast, cooked to our liking and served at a time to suit. Nothing was too much trouble😀
We dined that nigh at the Cod and Lobster, just round the corner, then back to bed for a very comfortable well earned sleep.
The 2 bedrooms are accessed by individual stairs from the lounge, so again, totally CV secure. Trudy would even stagger breakfast if required to avoid guests who were not friends from meeting up.
Breakfast was double bubble of everything plus cereal and masses of fruit so top marks here.
Next day more costal path walking north of Staines and in the afternoon the sun came out and it was perfect.
So, to sum up, Staithes is a perfect North East Sea side village. Do spend time to explore, find the bridge and stepping stones and many ally’s.
Dotty’s B&B is truly a splendid place and we thoroughly recommend it.
If you struggle with hills and bags, you can drive down and drop off but you will still need to park at the top. Forget cards and cash with the parking machine, just phone the number, it’s easy.
You will need to mind your heads, especially if you are on the window side of the bed.
Dotty, switches on the lamps would be good (switched lamp holders from B&Q). Beds a little soft but after running up and down the hills followed by hearty nosh, sleep was not a problem.
Thanks Trudy, Dotty in all the best ways, we will be back.
Superb boutique B&B
