Description

This very comfortable large house is situated in the top part of the village of Runswick Bay with sea views from the top floor. As the name implies, this was formally the village Post Office and general store but this closed about 10 years ago. Now converted to a lovely family house with a beautiful large enclosed rear garden and a front gardent and parking, this is a popular property for large families and groups.

 

Out of season, it is possible to book the property for 5 people or less at a reduced price. This allows use of this large property without the top floor.

 

The road down to the large sandy beach is just across the way. In the Bay there is a pub, which serves food, and a lovely tea room near the sandy beach. Children can search the rock pools, look for fossils as well as build their sandcastles. The house is only 50 yards from the nearest pub, the Runswick Bay Hotel, which serves excellent food and only two minutes to the Cleveland Way, popular with walkers as a spectacular route between Saltburn and Whitby. This part of the Cleveland Way leads across the cliffs to Port Mulgrave and Staithes.
