About the property

Situated just paces away from the glorious coast of the North York Moors National Park and hidden away in the village of Runswick Bay is this semi-detached property, Coach House Cottage.

The cottage is the ideal base for families to come together to celebrate a special occasion or to explore this majestic part of the coastline, the National Park and beyond.

After an action-packed day, look forward to coming back to this real home from home, where you can unwind and prepare for a new day.

Enter the kitchen, which is certain to entice a spot of home-cooking with the provided utilities and plenty of preparation space, as well as a washing machine so that you can wash away the sand from your clothes from that day’s beach trip.

Settle down for dinner with all your loved ones around you at the formal dining table, making a great social space for planning the days ahead or whiling away a couple of hours playing a board game brought from home.

Afterwards, venture into the sitting room and light up the fire, before snuggling up on the plush seating arrangement and flicking on the TV.

Once the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to find three bedrooms and a family bathroom with a bath and a walk-in shower.

Here, you will find two well-presented king-size bedrooms with superb countryside views and a single bedroom.

During the summer months, take your dining experience outdoors to the alfresco dining table, which is situated within the open garden, perfect for letting your pet roam the lawn.

Immerse yourself in your local surroundings further by taking a stroll into Runswick Bay, home to one of the most picturesque beaches and a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks.

Look forward to investigating the beach’s Hob Holes, which are small caves in the cliffs where hobgoblins supposedly once lived.

Here, you will find a number of quaint pubs and tearooms; however, a larger selection can be found a short distance away in Staithes, where a shop and more pubs accompany its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets.

Learn about the village’s history by visiting the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre or soak up the dramatic views further and walk along the Cleveland Way.

Alternatively, head further afield to the town of Whitby, home to the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the famous 199 steps up to the Church of St. Mary.

With all the wonder of the North Yorkshire Moors at your doorstep, Coach House Cottage promises to be a wonderful getaway.

About the location


Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
