Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Probably the most photographed cottage on the Yorkshire coast , looks like a great place to live but I doubt whether you'd sleep well when a good wintery north east gale gets up and the waves are pounding against that sea wall.

I think you may be right there Sam a tad drafty, noisy, salty, chilly, busy and all round 'y'.

I don't think I've ever made it THAT far up (unless you count Newcastle, Scotland etc).

I shall have to add it to the list. 'appen this year!

Cheers - Jethro

Tha's bin either side o t'best bits then bi t'sound on it, Thou ought ti ave a lake at all spots atween Redcar and Scarborough and out as far as t'pennines ti see wots best abaat North Yorkshire . Tha certainly dissent ought ti bi botherin wit bit from Middlesbrough up over till thas t'yon side o t'geordies. It only gets good again when thas well out o Newcastle and gettin near ti Holy Island .

See thi ! :O)

Like. I think it would be rather wonderful with a roaring fire going and bloaters and tripe and onions for tea.

I have never seen this cottage in my life before but I agree it is photogenic and this is a nice shot of it. Best wishes, Andy

I'm not sure I like your menu but a roaring fire would be an essential element for sure,

Many thanks !

Neil Grimwood on April 19, 2012

I don't like that menu either Sam/Andy, a glass of single malt and the fire would do just fine though;-)) Its not a place i would choose to live but it makes a nice picture just like this one. I wonder if those people caught any crabs.

Yorkshire Sam on April 19, 2012

Aye up Mr G, welcome back, it's been a while. Ah was thinking ad ave ti gi thee a call if tha adn't show signs of life bi tomorrow. Joan must ave ad a tight od o t'reins this week.

Neil Grimwood on April 20, 2012

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

If thee lakes after t'fire and keeps t'whisky flowing I'll knock up some steak, chips and mushrooms fella. Mind if thou can afford ti move in ti yon spot thou'll payin for all on it !

Neil Grimwood on April 20, 2012

Who said owt about moving in, we can still have a good fire on't beach that knows,as long as thou doesn't drop't steak on't sand.

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

you change t'rules ti suit thissen it seems, we were talkin abaat livin theer at start, now tha's evicted us and put us on t'sands wi a bonfire bi t'sound on it. I've gone right off t'idea now.

Neil Grimwood on April 20, 2012

I'll eat all't steak and sup all't whisky mesen then,unless Andy shows up;-))

Andy Rodker on April 20, 2012

Well, well, well. I have a little Yorkshire blood in me (but not much), a great great grandfather who played cricket for Derbyshire, his brother who played for Derbyshire, Lancashire , England and YORKSHIRE (strange but true), I don't have and can't DO a Yorkshire accent (wouldn't dream of it) but I have always supported Leeds Utd and I was taught how to cook a really good dish of tripe and onions according to 19th century family (mine) Yorkshire traditions and to my mind there are fewer finer dishes on God's earth, let alone 'God's Own Country'! I would even think a top single malt might just do it justice!.

Sorry about that, I just couldn't bear to see such a fine dish trashed in public without someone standing up for it. You Yorkshirites should be ashamed of yourselves!! Rant over! Best wishes, Andy

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

Well I'm sorry Andy but you can rant all you like mate because as I first thought and as The Great British Cookbook suggests it is of Lancashire origin and I'm happy for them to keep it. Having such mixed roots is obviously the source of your confusion but any true Yorkshiremen wouldn't want us to show affinity with the red rosers.

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

Neil me auld mate since we started out in the middle of a strong north easterly that was slamming into the sea wall, if you're daft enough to try and light a fire let alone try to cook on one in those conditions then you deserve to eat all the steak you manage to cook and I hope it tastes good with salty malt whisky. As for Andy he's probably heading west to find his favourite dinner :o)

Andy Rodker on April 20, 2012

Everything said here about the origins of tripe and onions is possible but it is in fact a dish once very widely known, and not just in the north from either side of the Pennines, but all over these Isles. My favourite dish is in fact paella which, as you know, originated in Robin's Hood Bay when a ship-wrecked Spanish fisherman decided to stay and set up a paella, chip and guacamole place. It didn't work out as the locals were too fond of their steak so he hot-footed it back to Valencia and set up shop there and the rest is history. :o)

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

I'd happily eat paella but yon Spanish fisherman and his mates it seems are still in our waters nicking our cod and haddock according to local fisher stock who are having to resort to taking tourists along the coast ( when conditions allow) where they may just see the remains of Neils bonfire attempt scattered along the tide line and a bottle floating past with a message in saying he wants rescuing and taking back to his perch way uphill away from the cold and angry North Sea.

Andy Rodker on April 20, 2012

Sam and Neil! My fault all this nonsense - perhaps I've veered too far from the supposed subject matter of this forum! I shall desist forthwith. With forth, even. Best, Andy :o)

Yorkshire Sam on April 20, 2012

Nay man , this ere is my picture and my page ( courtesy of Panoramio ) and the three of us are equally responsible for the sorry tale of storm lashed shores, tripe , whisky, steak and Spanish wanderers. Neil will no doubt reply when he's sober so I'm happy to let it ride.

Neil Grimwood on April 21, 2012

Its not nonsense Andy, its a bit of great banter;-)) Anyway, my matches are wet from the salt spray so i'm off to Whitby for a whale and a ton. You're both welcome to join me...don't panic Sam it should be Andy's treat seeing as he started it all;-))
