    Thank you very much for your feedback. We’ve had a couple of previous guests suggest an additional TV in the snug. Unfortunately, we needed to wait until the cottage was vacant to be able to install it and we’ve had the busiest start to our year! The cottage was empty this weekend, and a TV was actually added to the room. I know this doesn’t help for your stay, but I do hope you and your mum will visit us again soon.

    Couple of things that would have improved our stay. As a family of 4 the lack of seating was a bit of an issue, we used the snug as a bedroom but with only one sofa in the kitchen we were left to sit on the bar stools not particularly comfortable. TVs in the snug and 2nd bedroom would be great for families who are limited with evening entertainment. I was quite surprised just how busy the road on which the cottage is located, the windows are top quality and when closed really hid most of it however in warmer weather worth bearing in mind. The walk to the beach is pleasant maybe 5 or 10 minutes. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants right next to the property. All in all a nice break, probably better suited to couples to make the most of the establishments around the property.

  • "The cottage was very well appointed, really clean and with really comfy beds."

    The kitchen had everything you needed for a self catering holiday and it was great to have use of a washing machine as well (with drying rack). The outside space was a nice little sun trap while also offering shelter from the occasional rain showers - the table and seats again were really comfortable - great for drinks and games after a day at the beach. The small sitting room also offered a space for people to relax and chill away from the main kitchen/diner/sitting room. However, there was one drawback to this cottage. It was really uncomfortable to sit as a group and watch TV/films. We don't tend to watch a lot of TV but we do like to watch a movie at the end of the day. In order to do this we had to move the sofa and sit on an angle, while the fourth member of our group sat on a breakfast bar chair - not really comfortable for anyone. Despite this one drawback, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. The cottage was great and the beach was amazing and only 10 minutes down the road - just remember to bring a wetsuit - the water is freezing!

The property

Lying at the centre of the quintessential coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea, is the gorgeous stone-built dwelling of Harrington Cottage.

Renovated to a fabulous standard whilst retaining charm through its exposed beam ceilings, this beautiful abode offers an idyllic backdrop for your next family getaway to the North York Moors and Coast.

Make yourself at home in the airy open-plan living space, home to a chic navy kitchen with a sea of sleek electrical appliances such as an oven and hob, as well as an impressive coffee maker, perfect for showing off your culinary skills whilst friends chat over a bottle of wine at the well-designed breakfast bar.

Retire to the stylish leather sofa and watch movies on the wall-mounted TV, or cross the hallway to the attractive snug and enjoy quality time with your loved ones as you discuss your upcoming adventures.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, climb the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by two inviting bedrooms including a super-king-size and a twin, each of which have been decorated with plush grey carpets and calming hues, together creating a peaceful space to relax at the end of a fun-filled day.

The bedrooms are both served by a serene bathroom featuring a striking stone wall, where you can escape the excitement as you unwind with a soak in the bathtub.

Start your days with a warm cup of coffee out in the rear courtyard and indulge in a hearty breakfast alfresco-style on those warm summer days.

Be sure to check out the local beach spanning eight miles; you can begin in Marske and walk to either Redcar or Saltburn, with the beach at Marske being dog-friendly all year round.

Venture over to Saltburn-by-the-Sea for a relaxing ride on the Saltburn Cliff Tramway, the oldest water balanced funicular still open in Great Britain, and take in the breath-taking vistas and centre of town, before descending back to the beach and wandering along the bustling pier, Saltburn’s beach being popular with surfers and home to several surf schools with equipment hire.

Admire the well-manicured lawns of the Saltburn Valley Gardens and see the Grade II listed building of The Old Mortuary, both well worth a visit.

Redcar boasts plenty to see and do as well from the Kirkleatham Museum with its beautiful grounds, woodland trail and wide range of exhibitions, to the stunning 360 views to admire from Redcar Beacon, with a day at the races at Redcar Racecourse being a fabulous day out with fixtures held throughout the year.

For those seeking exciting adventures, head to Scaling Dam Sailing Club where a wide range of sailing and watersports are on offer, including paddle-boarding, windsurfing, and kayaking!

Spend the day hiking or cycling through the North York Moors National Park with an array of terrains and landscapes to explore; nearby beauty spots include Errington Woods, Guisborough Forest & Walkway, and the iconic Roseberry Topping where incredible views of Cleveland and North Yorkshire can be enjoyed, with the Cleveland Way always a favourite amongst walkers too!

Families will enjoy a wonderful trip to Flamingo Land Resort, whilst outdoor enthusiasts will relish a day at Go Ape Dalby, both around an hour’s drive away.

Make wonderful memories with your nearest and dearest on an unforgettable escape to the seaside at Harrington Cottage.

Originally an old fishing village, today it has a selection of local shops and pubs, which cater for all the family, plus the safe, sandy beaches, sand dunes and fishing boats are an enticing attraction. Places of interest nearby include Captain Cook's birthplace, the mining museum, and the Zetland Lifeboat Museum. Within easy reach of this quaint village is a horse riding centre, the stunning scenery of the North York Moors, through which runs a steam railway line, and the numerous pretty inland villages and fishing villages including Staithes and Runswick Bay. The old Victorian spa town of Saltburn is just 3 miles away and it's an easy drive to other seaside resorts such as Whitby. A great base from which to tour the area.
