A warm welcome to
Roraima House

We are delighted to welcome guests to our beautiful and comfortable B&B and self-catering apartment in Jane's home village of Staithes.

We love to meet all kinds of guests but we especially enjoy hosting hikers on the Cleveland Way and other walks. There's a handy bench in the entrance hallway for slipping off heavy boots, and plenty of newspaper and a radiator for helping wet boots dry out. Be sure to let us know if you need any coats or waterproofs drying overnight. Ask us about our discount for walkers, bicyclists and those coming to us via public transport.

We also love to host groups, so bear us in mind for your family and friends get-togethers of up to 8 (plus a rollaway bed and cot).

Roraima was built in the 1890s by sea captain John Trattles and named after his steamship the SS Roraima. It is an impressive, large three-storey Victorian house built at the top end of the village of Staithes.

To the front of the house is an enclosed garden with seating in summer and we are fortunate in Staithes to be able to offer parking for our B&B guests at the rear of the house. We also have an enclosed rear yard where bikes can be padlocked and stored. The whole house is non-smoking, which includes e-cigarettes.


The accommodation is spread over three floors. The ground floor has an impressive entrance hallway and welcoming dining room. The first floor has two guest rooms, both with en-suites and views across to Boulby cliffs and the sea. On the top floor we have two further rooms, a king size bedroom and a twin with a shared bathroom and lounge/kitchen facility.

The entrance is via a small Victorian tiled floor porch which has fabulous stained glass windows surrounding the front door.  Inside, the hallway leads to the original large pitch pine staircase with more stained glass decorating the way to the first and second floors.

The dining room has an open fire, lounge chairs and a selection of magazines, books and the local newspaper for quiet reading in a TV-free zone. There's also a piano in the corner which guests are welcome to play whenever it won't bother other guests.


Whilst we prepare your choice of grilled locally sourced sausage & bacon accompanied by mushrooms, tomatoes, hash brown, free range eggs & baked beans, help yourself to cereals, fruit juice, fruit & yogurt, freshly baked bread and toast.

Afternoon Tea

During B&B check-in at Roraima House, enjoy home-made cake and tea or coffee and a chance to chat with your hosts.
