One of England’s most famous cottages has come on the market at £295,000.
 
Beckside, in Staithes, near Whitby, has been seen by millions as the house on the Yorkshire Tea box.

It also features on souvenirs, postcards and calendars of the seaside village made famous by Captain James Cook, who worked there as a boy.

Currently a holiday cottage, Beckside has been owned for the last 10 years by Andrew Revitt and his business partners Clare Revitt and Chris and Fran Peace.
 
‘We fell in love with it when we first saw it and bought it straightaway,’ said Mr Revitt.

‘This area of the village is one of the UK’s most photographed places.

‘I’ve lost count of the number of people who have said: ‘We’ve seen your cottage on a chocolate box, tea tray, tea box and so on.’

Located by the quayside next to the lifeboat station overlooking Roxby Beck and the harbour, Beckside dates back almost 250 years, starting life as a fisherman’s cottage when Staithes was one of the busiest fishing ports on the east coast.
