Dunsley on TV in New Zealand?

Homes by the Sea, the Channel 4 programme that feature Dunsley in Staithes last autumn, has made it to New Zealand... it's also showing on Singapore Airlines inflight entertainment, so our wee cottage by the sea has now been seen on the other side of the world, as well as on the way to it. Funny to think that Captain James Cook left Staithes for Whitby and then New Zealand, and technology is finally catching up!

Christmas decorations at Dunsley

Christmas Illuminations are up at Dunsley in Staithes... it's not entirely traditional since the tree is in the bedroom and the fish is eating tinsel, but it's the festive thought that counts. Hoping our guests have fun! best wishes to all for 2016, from Judy, Duncan and Dunsley

Staithes and Dunsley: Homes by the Sea

Well, we thought the glorious North Yorkshire coast looked fabulous on Homes by the Sea last night (Tues Oct 6: second series, second episode). Staithes featured for 11 minutes, with Dunsley, our little self-catering holiday cottage, for nearly 4 minutes. Harbour, beach, fossils, ginnels and the river, great drone shots and some wonderful views: just brilliant. It screens again on Sunday at 7pm on Channel 4... what fun!

Dunsley on prime time TV

OK, so the new series of Homes by the Sea has started: the first episode on Cornwall was fantastic. The North Yorkshire episode with Dunsley's 'short and sweet' segment (according to the film makers!) is on TV tomorrow night: More 4 at 9pm; and again on Sunday night (Oct 11) on Channel 4 at 7pm. Prime time viewing! I'm definitely nervous about how Duncan and I will look on TV (it was just after my knee operation) but I guess we'll find out tomorrow!

Dunsley on TV

Exciting news: Dunsley in Staithes is being featured in Channel 4's new series of Homes by the Sea. It's presented by Charlie Lockton, who was really friendly and easy to work with when they did the filming in May. It was a tight squeeze getting me (on crutches), Duncan, Charlie and the whole film crew up our twisty staircase and into the snug on the top floor, but hopefully worth the effort. We're part of the North Yorkshire episode, which is episode 2, showing on More 4, Tuesday October 6th at 9pm. Can't wait!
