The property

A traditional end-terrace cottage, perched high on a hill in a tranquil position, overlooking the old spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

With glorious views over the coastline and countryside, it is in an idyllic location for walking, touring or enjoying a family holiday by the sea.

With a homely feel throughout, there is a comfortable sitting room with a warming open fire set in the original Victorian fireplace; perfect for cosy nights in the cooler evenings.

The bright but simple kitchen has a dining area at one end, while upstairs are two cheerful bedrooms with splendid views over the sea and open countryside.

Outside, there is private parking for one car and parking for an additional car in the garden area.

This generous-sized enclosed wildlife garden, complete with pond, is accessed via a communal lane and is designed to promote local wildlife.

A short stroll down the hill brings you to the golden sands of this seaside resort, with its pier and historic cliff lift.

Enjoy a walk from the seafront through the ornamental Valley Gardens to the town centre, where there are many independent shops, galleries, tea rooms and restaurants to choose from.

This small, traditional spa town retains its original elegance and charm, and offers fabulous clifftop walking opportunities on the Cleveland Way and a network of public footpaths.

The surrounding area is ripe for exploring, with easy access to spectacular moorland and pretty coastal villages, including Staithes and Runswick Bay.

With many attractions close by, such as the steam railway at Grosmont and the Danby Moors Centre Exhibition Centre, this cottage provides a lovely base for a happy holiday.
