Originally built for the Port and mine owner Sir Charles Palmer in 1857, he took inspiration from Marseilles to design this unusual "bungalow". Originally restored in 2005 and now refurbished to a very high specification in 2016, Palmer’s retains many of its original features including high ceilings with ornate covings, fireplaces, stripped wood floors and porch with coloured glass.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Provide Towels and Bedding?

Bed linen, towels, oven glove and tea towels are all provided along with a luxury hamper.

What time do we check in and out?

Check in is after 3pm on your arrival day and check out is by 10am on your day of departure

How many nights is a short break and when?

Short breaks are up to 4 nights subject to availability. These can be booked at any time for low season and 3 weeks before the arrival date in mid season.

How many pets do you allow?

Having 3 dogs myself I try and be as flexible as possible but do put some restrictions on the smaller properties. If you have more than 2 dogs please contact me direct via phone or email to check which property will best meet your needs for the number and size of your dogs. For Palmers and Old Stable please contact me if you have more than 3 dogs. There is a small charge of £25 per pet per stay. I am also very accommodating of other pets and have had cats, rabbits, budgies and parrots staying – again, please contact me direct to discuss further.

Where is the nearest supermarket?

Sainsbury's, Asda and Tesco all deliver to this area. We have a Co –Op in Staithes which is well stocked and do fresh baked bread. In Hinderwell there is a Butchers that is also a general store. At Lythe there is a Community general store shop, café and Post Office.
In Whitby there is a Lidl and a Sainsbury’s (with fuel station)
Head towards Saltburn and at Skelton there is an Asda with fuel station.

How far is it to a café or pub?

The Badger Hounds is about a 10 minute walk – they consistenly get good reviews from our guests and huge portions too! They are dog friendly but I would advise booking as they do get busy. Just up the road from there is The Ellerby Hotel, which does pub food and has a lovely garden. (dogs only allowed in the garden though). The Black Bull at Ugthorpe is well worth a visit as is The Cliffemount Hotel at the top of Runswick Bay with fantastic views. Dogs welcome in the bar area for meals. The Jolly Sailors on the A171 is also fantastic. The Runcible Spoon in Hinderwell is our local café and dogs are welcome outside and The ship Inn Café is just minutes away.
At Sandsend, Neil in Sandside Café has a beautiful seafront position and dogs are welcome in the covered decking or front outside seating area….a firm favourite of ours and the dogs. The food is amazing (a Boxing Day full English breakfast in the fresh air wins hands down as does a sunny day with homemade cheesecake and fresh coffee after a long walk on the beach!!)
To be honest the whole area is covered with pubs and cafes that are welcoming of children and dogs so you are totally spoilt for choice whichever way you turn.

What is the weekly booking change over day?


How many cars do you have parking for?

There is ample parking on the front turning circle for up to 10 cars.

What disabled access do you have?

There are 2 bedrooms downstairs, one with an ensuite with a low-level access shower tray suitable for someone with limited mobility. Access into the property is via 3 shallow steps into the porch and then 2 further wide steps into the hallway with very wide doors to both. Once inside the downstairs is all on one level with a very wide hallway, wide doorways and good turning circles. There is a small threshold out of the tri-fold kitchen doors onto the raised stone patio.
