Things To Do in Grinkle, Easington

Located in the village of Grinkle, the lodge is 13 miles from the traditional seaside town of Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast. Visit Whitby’s famous abbey which offers fantastic views out over the coastline and is well worth the 199 step climb to get to it. Whitby has a busy calendar of events all year round from Whitby Goth Weekend, held twice a year to the Whitby Regatta which has yacht racing, rowing races and entertainment on offer.

The regatta has taken place for over 170 years and continues to draw the crowds in August of every year. Buy traditionally smoked kippers at Fortune’s Kippers or visit the Captain Cook Museum and learn about the town from which this famous British explorer and discoverer of New Zealand and the eastern coast of Australia sailed from. Take a trip out to sea to spot seals, bottle nosed dolphins and various species of whales or stay closer to the shore and enjoy bird watching for cormorants, kittiwakes, puffins and guillemots.

The former fishing village of Staithes, now known for its tiny cottages and mish mash of streets, has some lovely clifftop walks against the backdrop of Boulby Cliffs and is the perfect place for bird watching with nests easy to spot amongst the cliffs. Local fishermen still head out to sea for cod, lobsters and crabs which you can enjoy in the restaurants dotted around Staithes or even take a trip out to sea on a converted fishing boat for views of the beautiful coastline which was once a haven for smugglers.

Less than 40 minutes away by car is the fantastic seaside town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. With an original Victorian pier and a the oldest water-balanced funicular railway in Great Britain found at Saltburn Cliff, you and your loved one can enjoy fabulous views out to sea from high above the town. Your four-legged friend is also welcome on board. Saltburn-by-the-Sea has traditional amusements and stunning cliff views as well as picturesque beach huts and welcoming cafés and restaurants.

Our Thoughts

Blackgill Lodge is the perfect choice for couples looking for a romantic break surrounded by fresh air and countryside yet close to the beach for walks with their canine friend.

Enjoy breakfast on the terrace or dinner on a summer’s evening then cosy up on the comfortable sofa with a glass of your favourite wine and the lights down low for a view out to the stars through the patio doors.

The lodge is located within easy access by car to Staithes where you can explore a town once associated with tea smuggling as well as Whitby with its majestic abbey.

Situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, day trips to beautiful Robin Hood’s Bay and Ryedale’s market towns of Pickering, Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Malton and Norton are easy by car and offer breath-taking views out across the heather growing on the moors.
