Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Runswick Bay, Yorkshire.
For peace and tranquillity by the sea, things don't come
much better than a Runswick Bay cottage holiday.
Just six miles along the coast from Whitby, this picture-postcard village was once a bustling fishing community but today is primarily an idyllic retreat for holidaymakers. Nestled at the end of a wide, sandy beach, the white painted cottages appear to tumble down the hillside as they cling to the rugged cliffs. Down on the seafront you'll find the last remaining thatched cottage on the Yorkshire coast, the former coastguard's cottage.
If you like beachcombing, especially for fossils, this is the ideal place. The rocks along the beach are millions of years old and fossils from the lower Jurassic period are frequently washed ashore. The beach is also a hive of activity for the local beach and sailing club - and whether you're a hands-on sailor or just a spectator, a great day will be had by all.
A walk along the Cleveland Way never fails to impress, hugging the dramatic Heritage Coastline and then heading deep into the North York Moors National Park. There are lots of things to see and do in the area - explore the Moors by steam train, discover traditional market towns like Pickering, visit the Captain Cook Heritage Centre in Staithes or, if you dare, meet Dracula in Whitby! Following a day's fun and activity, enjoy locally brewed ales, traditional Yorkshire food and warm hospitality at the local inn then retire to your Runswick Bay cottage for a good night's sleep.
