Area Information

A small town in the civil parish of Skelton and Brotton situated at the foot of the Cleveland Hills a great place for walking and cycling 21 miles from the historic coastal town of Whitby.  Skelton Castle was built in the 12th century by the de Brus (Bruce) family. All Saints Church is located at the entrance to Skelton Castle with a square 13th century font with unusual geometric and floral designs.  The view looking over Skelton Castle to Tees Bay is well worth a look.

Steeped in history, Saltburn has maintained much of its original character and charm as a Victorian Seaside resort. The long stretch of beach has a traditional seaside pier. Have a stroll in the Italian gardens or for the more serious walker the popular Cleveland Way National Trail is right on your doorstep. Saltburn also boasts the oldest water balanced tramway in Britain that is still in operation. The town itself has a selection of cafes, restaurants and independent shops. All this makes Saltburn the ideal base for you to explore the North York Moors and towns beyond.
