This state of the art detached holiday lodge is part of a private site on the North Yorkshire coast and is ideal for a family or group of friends, including one well-behaved dog, to explore a wonderful part of northern England.
Its secluded location gives a real sense of peace and quiet, helped by the fresh sea air and southeast facing aspect, which can be best enjoyed from the covered decked area with its panoramic views.
Visit Runswick Bay, regularly voted Britain’s Best Beach, discover the cliffside steps from the area’s fishing heritage, visit Captain Cook’s birthplace at Staithes, follow the Cleveland Way and explore the North York Moors National Park.

Things To Do in Runswick Bay
The site is a short walk from Runswick Bay, a sheltered cove with a superb sandy beach, which can be accessed via some rather challenging steps on the cliffside, or by going to the lower village right on the seafront.
As well as stretching people’s and dog’s legs, there is kayaking to be had here for the adventurous. Stop off in the lower village for a drink and bite to eat at the dog-friendly pub, then head back up the hill to the top village, where you can pick up the Cleveland Way or head into Hinderwell.
At Hinderwell you’ll find a couple of pubs, a butcher’s shop, great fish and chips and a petrol station; don’t miss the war memorial at the heart of the village. The Cleveland Way is a National Trail over 100 miles long, which stretches the coastal town of Filey, past Runswick Bay to Saltburn, then back inland to skirt the North York Moors.
Walkers and hikers, including the dog, will love the challenge of the path itself. At the same time, there are loads of visitor attractions along the way, including the Cliff Lift at Saltburn, Whitby Abbey, Robin Hood’s Bay and Roseberry Topping (also known as Yorkshire’s Matterhorn.)
A short drive south takes you to Whitby, a thriving fishing port as well as a holiday town. Further south again is Scarborough, with its promenades, beaches and candy floss, as well as contemporary experiences like the Alpamare Water Park.
This holiday lodge will delight people and dogs alike, from its amenities to the area it sits in and the opportunities at hand while you’re there. Enjoy the pleasure of a private site away from the general public, which means the kind of peace and quiet very rarely found in most holiday sites. Take in the sea air and open skies of the North Yorkshire coast without leaving the lodge, or (much more likely) head straight down to the Bay and its secluded beach, with the comforts of the lower village right at hand if you get tired or the weather turns.
For the health-conscious, there’s no better way than the Cleveland Way to fill the lungs and stretch the legs, whether by walking, hill climbing or cycling. Along the way, there are some unique tourist attractions from the area’s history, be that medieval abbey or industrial era cliff lifts. At any point, you can drop in somewhere lovely for a cup of tea, fish and chips, excellent local food and drink; all served with legendary northern hospitality.
At night, come home to your private slice of Yorkshire and enjoy a drink either outside on the verandah or inside, looking through the big glass doors towards the sea.
