Dunsley is ready to celebrate Christmas, with a perfect little tree from Duncombe Park estate. The village tree, by the harbour, is much bigger and bolder, but the Dunsley tree is just right for our private little yard. Our Christmas guests arrive on Friday for two weeks, and are sure to enjoy the Staithes atmosphere. Merry Christmas, all!

The Staithes christmas tree, which sits right by the harbour, just above the beach was illuminated on December 4, but last weekend it had extra help from the full moon. I took this picture just after sunset, with the lights twinkling on the tree and on the water. The sea was pure silver against an indigo sky; just wonderful. There's a festive atmosphere in Staithes already, with decorations and lights on many of the cottages. It should be a fun season! We've already had an enquiry for Dunsley for New Year 2012-13! so if you fancy the idea of Christmas in Staithes, it's worth planning ahead! www.dunsleyinstaithes.co.uk
