Beachcomber is a lovely cottage in the heart of the historic fishing village of Skinningrove with Cattersty Sands beaches just a short level stroll away, an area very popular for dog walking. If you are looking for a seaside stay which is in a quiet seaside village but is still close to the hustle and bustle of Whitby, Staithes and Saltburn then Beachcomber is for you. The quiet sandy northern and rocky southern beaches there are separated by the old ironstone loading jetty to the backdrop of Hummersea cliffs. Known as ‘The Jurassic Yorkshire Coast’ fossils can be found there, and inquisitive seals can often be seen fishing near the shore.
Sited in the middle of the Cleveland Way the area is a mecca for walkers with a very popular café bar nearby. For the more adventurous the coastline here is popular with surfers and national surfing events are held here during the autumn and winter months.
There is plenty to do in this area, in nearby Saltburn you can experience a ride on the Cliff Lift down to the pier on one of the world's oldest water-powered funicular railways or visit the miniature railway there. For the real deal just take the renowned North Yorkshire Moors steam railway that runs across the moors to Pickering and includes Harry Potter’s ‘Hogsmeade’ station at Goathland where ‘Heartbeat’ was also filmed.
There are many festivals along the coast here throughout the year including the ‘Festival of Folk Music, Dance and Song’, the ‘60’s weekend, the ‘ghosts’ festival, Classic Car Shows and the ’Blues, Rhythm and Rock festival’ to name a few.
You can’t stay in this area without a visit to iconic Whitby with its beaches, piers, restaurants and cafes. The Cistercian Whitby Abbey is said to be the inspiration for Bram Stokers “Dracula” and has a large Goth community. No stay is complete without some fish and chips eaten in the outdoors on the Victorian bandstand looking over the beach and sea.

Skinningrove is set between Saltburn and Staithes. The village had it routes in agriculture and fishing until the opening of the ironstone workings in 1848. Visit the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum where on August 7th, 1848, the first mine in Cleveland opened in Skinningrove. It was the first of 83 ironstone mines in the region. Ultimately, they would dispatch iron worldwide, building railways and bridges all across Europe, Africa, America, India and even the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia. Skinningrove has a lovely secluded sand and shingle beach offering fine views and is intersected by a rocky pier dating back to its mining history. Only a short drive down the coast you will find the small fishing port of Staithes a step back in time with its quaint shops, tea rooms selling local produce and pubs serving serving hearty meals. The village has an interesting Arts and Heritage Festival each year in September. Further down the coast is the historic town of Whitby hosting events throughout the year and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. Dalby Forest a great day out with mountain bike cycle trails for families or specially designed tracks catering for all abilities. A great day out for all the family. The North York Moors railway runs from Pickering to Whitby through the beautiful North York Moors calling at Levisham Goathland and Grosmont you can alight at each station and do a circular walk or just enjoy the ride.
Lying between the North York Moors National Park and the bustling seaside resort of Saltburn-on-Sea with its Victorian pier, cliff lift, and gardens, the small town of Loftus provides the perfect base for exploring the best of town and country. Here you are within easy reach of the attractions of the Yorkshire Coast. The quirky and quaint seaside port of Staithes is under 5 miles away where you will find a mix of local, independent shops, tea rooms and pubs serving fresh local food lining the ancient cobbled streets as well as a sandy beach and annual arts and heritage festival which draws visitors from far and wide. Head down into the North York Moors to be delighted by the seemingly never-ending carpet of beautiful purple heather, with rolling hills and sweeping valleys stretching for as far as the eye can see. This proximity to stunning coastal and countryside landscapes makes Loftus the ideal location for walkers and families looking to take in the fresh air and thrills this part of Yorkshire has to offer while also remaining within easy reach of the larger towns such as Whitby, Guisborough (with its Priory and Forest) and the city of Middlesborough.
