The property

Paddock Retreat is a beautiful Pod, perfect for a short break, resting on a raised terrace, in the coastal village of Runswick Bay, North Yorkshire.

This compact-style studio accommodation is ideal for a couple looking to get away to a beautiful part of the country, step into the modern interior and relax on the plush sofa after a day exploring the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

A frosty night welcomes the warmth of the imitation woodburning stove while you cook up a light meal to be enjoyed at the dining table or out on the patio, accompanied by a well-deserved bottle of wine with your other half.

When the evening draws to a close, pull out the sofa bed and catch some rest before starting the day over, letting the serene setting drift you off to sleep.

You can sit and watch the bird life on the front patio as you sip a refreshing glass of wine and ooze in the peaceful ambiance.

Just a short walk away is the village centre of Runswick Bay, a collection of red-roofed cottages, tucked away behind the cliffs overlooking the golden beach below.

A traditional and quiet fishing village with access to the car park at the bottom of the hill for people with walking difficulties, there is also a labyrinth of narrow lanes with a number of pleasant pubs and tearooms to enjoy.

A mix of sand and stone, Runswick Bay Beach is a popular destination for families, sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts, here you can spend the day relaxing with your favourite book, enjoying watersports, or wander along the beach and take note of the Hob Holes, small caves in the cliffs where hobgoblins were supposed to live, exploring the many rock pools, or search the beach rubble for fossils.

The long-distance walking path, Cleveland Way, passes through Runswick Bay offering plenty of walking opportunities as well as many cycling opportunities to enjoy and you will find two pubs within easy walking distance and a few local shops, including the all-important chip shop, all very close in walking distance.

With the spectacular North York Moors to explore and the bustling seaside town of Whitby within easy reach, these properties have something for everyone.

Choose this superb base for a romantic break on Yorkshire's coast.

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.
