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

We were a party of six adults and three children and we found the house had everything we needed. the kitchen was well equipped and the children particularly enjoyed the garden and the games room. A good property, close to the beach and amenities.

The property was one of the best we have ever hired. It was excellently kitted out for a variety of ages. We were really pleased with it.
