Olympic Torch Relay passes Staithes

On Monday June 18, the Olympic Flame passes Staithes on its way from Athens to London. Starting Day 31 of the torch relay in Middlesbrough, the flame visits Saltburn-by-the-Sea, enters the North York Moors national park at Loftus, then passes Staithes Bank Top on its way to Hinderwell, Lythe, Sandsend and Whitby. Here, it boards the steam train to travel to Pickering, then heads back to the coast at Scarborough and ends the day in Hull. For more details click on and then Torch Relay. Dunsley has availability for the weekend short break of June 15-18, so you'd have time to watch the relay after checking out at 10.30am! More details at

Summer in Staithes...

The summer patio furniture is now installed at Dunsley! After a chilly start to the season we've bitten the bullet and replaced the winter bench with the table and chairs, for al-fresco dining. Fingers crossed it'll soon be warm enough to use it. There's always the option of staying warm indoors and opening the stable half-door to watch the world go by from the comfort of the sofa, of course!
 We've also set up a new website -  - to partner . Both are active, it's just to make it even easier to remember and access.
 We've had feedback already from our new QR code (see previous post), which is displayed in the yard so the technology seems to be working!
