  • “So close to a fabulous beach and the Cumbrian Way with awesome walks.”

    A very special place to be, quiet and just lovely. Lots of other places nearby to visit, especially Whitby. Fantastic that the owner left us a residents parking card for parking in the seaside towns. Very thoughtful.

The property

Nestled in a secluded paddock area, in the rolling countryside of Runswick Bay in North Yorkshire, is this fabulous detached lodge.

The interior offers a wonderful open-plan living space for a small group to gather for a remote holiday break, in the picturesque coastline.

Curl up on the provided sofa or armchair for relaxing time with your loved ones in front of the inviting fire to keep you warm during those chilly evenings.

Use the dining table for enjoying lovely home-cooked meals, or the convenient breakfast bar for a quick breakfast before beginning your day.

The kitchen is amply-equipped with everything you could need to rustle up a lovely meal for the whole group!

Walk through to the two well-presented bedrooms; a double with an en-suite cloakroom and a twin, served by a family shower room.

Each bedroom has been brightly-decorated with your comfort in mind, and offers a superb place to get some much-needed shut eye for the next day.

A decking area can be accessed via patio doors from the sitting room, where you can take a snack or a refreshing drink in a tranquil setting.

Grab your swimming gear and head to the centre of Runswick Bay and discover a lovely sandy beach with rock pools on either side, together offering a charming place to visit and soak up some sun rays.

Get involved with the local sailing club where you can delight in a trip out to sea, or why not set about on one of the many beautiful walking and cycling routes within the area where you can enjoy picturesque views of the coastline.

Discover a range of traditional Yorkshire pubs, serving fine food and real ale, all within a short walking distance.

The neighboring town of Staithes has become a magnet for local artists, who are inspired by its picturesque setting, and some of their works are held in the Staithes Gallery, whilst the thriving town of Whitby can be found within easy touring distance and boasts a fabulous sandy beach and a plethora of historical sites such as the Captain Cook Museum, Whitby Abbey and 199 steps.

With so much to see right on your doorstep, Chestnut Lodge is the perfect base from which to discover the very best North Yorkshire has to offer.

About the location


Staithes 2 miles; Whitby 9 miles; Saltburn-by-the-Sea 10 miles.

The historic fishing village of Runswick Bay is without doubt one of the true gems of the Yorkshire Coast, if not the whole of the UK. This picturesque SE-facing village situated 9 miles from Whitby sits in a beautiful sheltered sandy-beached bay backed by spectacular cliffs and moorland scenery. Relatively un-commercialised and with vehicular traffic restricted, the village provides the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind. Relish in taking long walks on either the sandy beach or along the Cleveland Way on the clifftop above. There is much to do in the local area, whether it's visiting Whitby with its famous Abbey, Staithes with its pretty shops, cafes and superb art gallery, or touring the dramatic North York Moors. The lower village houses a local inn serving food along with a spectacularly situated cafe, whilst nearby Hinderwell provides 2 inns, a fish and chip shop, a local butchers and a garage/petrol station. A Co-op is situated at Staithes 2 miles away.
