residential course details

a typical program for a 3 night residential course  

with 'real staithes'

 

245.00 per person 

group size limited to 8 people... 

  • the course starts with a welcome supper, introductory talk and a walk (optional) around the village...

  • day one starts with a cooked breakfast at 7am.... yes we know it's early but the 'time & tides wait for no man or woman...' so you need to be ready to leave the cottage by 8am...

  • the morning will be spent on the foreshore... checking the lobster pots and longlines... beachcombing...  exploring rock pools...  bird watching...while keeping an eye out for jet and fossils - this is the Jurassic coast -  so watch out for the dinosaurs... learning about the mining history... flasks and  homemade snack will be provided to keep you going..

  • lunch will be waiting for upon your return to the cottage... there will be the option of a boat trip in the afternoon (weather permitting) aboard Sean's boat 'All My Sons'... when you will be able to see the village from the sea... try your hand at rod fishing... don't forget your cameras... it's a great photo opportunity...

  • after the boat trip you will be free to explore the village or area...  Monday evening is lifeboat practice in Staithes so you will get the chance to see and photograph the local lifeboat... maybe going into Whitby for your supper...

  • day two starts the same as day one... with a cooked breakfast at 7am so you can be ready to leave the cottage by 8am... this time we will be heading south along the rocks to Port Mulgrave...

  • Port Mulgrave, as the name suggests, was once a port and was part of the Mulgrave estate... today Port Mulgrave is full of fishermen's huts... it's here that a picnic lunch will be waiting for you... there will be plenty of time for you to explore this part to the rugged north east coast... before a climb up the cliff... then it's a scenic walk along part of the Cleveland Way... with wonderful views out to sea... and along the coast with Boulby Cliff dominating the vista... the walk will bring you back to Staithes down Church Street which leads straight to the cottage... where perhaps a rest or a cup of tea maybe the order of the day... however you choose to fill it... we suggest a few hours of 'free time'... 

  • to round off the day we will all have supper and a 'de-briefing' together at the cottage... and for those who wish finish the  evening at one of the local pubs...

  • on the final morning breakfast will be at 8am... giving you time maybe for a quick walk around the village before leaving the cottage by 10.00am...

  • if you would like to see the course as a 'timetable'...

please note:   the minimum age for this course is 12 years....  

                                            all children must be accompanied by an adult...

note:   some of the timings mentioned here  may change due to the tides...
