Description

This is an exceptionally well-equipped, and very comfortable large house situated in the top part of Runswick Bay and only a mile from a selection of shops in Hinderwell. With two reception rooms, two bathrooms and five bedrooms, this lovely property is ideal for a large family gathering or two smaller families sharing. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine which comes in very handy after a day on the beach. The property offers off road parking for 2 cars, a large enclosed garden and WiFi. 

The property is only 80 yards from the Cleveland Way (Saltburn to Whitby) coastal footpath to Port Mulgrave and on to Staithes. There is a village inn nearby, serving excellent food, and just across the road is the way down to the beach. The lovely beach offers fine sand, rock pools and the possibility of finding fossils. Also at the bottom of the bank, you will find a tea shop selling good food and offering fishing nets, buckets and spades and body boards. 

Because of its layout the house can be used by a smaller party, at a reduced price out of season, not using the second floor. Please ring for details.

Runswick Bay
This picture perfect seaside village is like the cover of a postcard. The quaint village is located around five miles from Whitby. Pretty cottages and houses line the hills and cliffs around the bay. The special and secluded beach is set at the bottom of a steep hill and offers a tranquil and peaceful location for holiday makers, as well as being a popular hot spot for artists and photographers. The bay has a timeless feel and is perfect for couples wanting to enjoy a romantic walk on the beach; alternatively it is an ideal location for a quiet family holiday. For the more active, surfers, sailing and kayak enthusiasts relish the sweep of the Bay whilst cyclists have a good choice of routes. A regular bus service to/ from Whitby allows you to leave the car at home. With a pub and cafe it has every ingredient to make the perfect holiday destination.

Reviews

A lovely house, well maintained. Kitchen very well stocked. Fire and log-burner made the evenings very cosy.Miss L Rodley - 6th January 2016
This was a return visit for three generations of the Bird/Dunnett family - all eight of us! We loved the house and location last time and so were keen to come back. Greatly well-equipped house catering for all our kids (10, 8 and 2). Table tennis tournaments aplenty! Amazing beach: fantastic house and location, in short!Bird/Dunnett family - 29th August 2015
We had a lovely holiday. The beach was brilliant. I liked playing in the den and the mini trampoline was good too. I stayed in the mini bedroom which was so cosy. I didn't want to go home!Nichols and Lowe families - 15th August 2015
We chose the property because it had a garden and the children loved playing in it. Patio furniture good for meals.Mrs J Vickers - 27th July 2015
Fab time at Alby House. Absolutely fantastic. The house is so comfy, especially with kids. Everything is here that you need. Lots of space for big groups: just fab!O’Brien family - 25th July 2015
What a beautiful part of the world! Just spent a great week at Alby House. The house was absolutely perfect for what you need when away...we were surprised by all the items that were there for us to use. McGrath family - 14th July 2015
Children: I think the house is extremely homely and cosy. It made my whole family happy. We had such fun at the Runswick beach and playing rounders in the garden. Parents: As you can see we have had a super holiday in this excellent house!Nottingham Posse - 10th July 2015
Lovely large house, well-equipped. Garden lovely size. Games room was a great hit with our children and adults too! Beds very comfy, plenty of very hot water and towels. ...a lovely house with lots of room and everything a large family could need.Hague family - 24th August 2014
Our three families have all had a brilliant week here and the house is absolutely perfect. We appreciate all the little extras you provided, they made for a very comfortable stay. This house really was well-equipped. It was our first time in Whitby and we enjoyed it so much and will definitely be back!Carson, Ross and Williamson families - 12th July 2014
