  • "Pleasant stay, the welcome pack was lovely x The only negative we found was the tv signal wasn’t good at times."

    (Maybe wouldn’t bother others) Slept well - maybe due to the hills and steps, but nice to get into a nice clean bedding at night. Perfect Thankyou

  • "The flat is really lovely, clean and well maintained and the owner is really nice."

    I would definitely stay here again. The only negative for myself was trying to find the property initially. Especially when it's dark. The flat is in a 2 story block of flats, that say Runswick Lodge, no number on there. To get to it, you have to go down a drive at the side of number 38, behind a hedge and the street it's on isn't well lit, so it's really hard to see house numbers. We had to park up and I had to run up and down the road with a torch to find the property. Also it wasn't clear that the keysafe was inside, we're used to them being outside the property and wasn't aware the entrance door was open. Again the carpark doesn't have any lights. In the light this wouldn't have been so much of an issue but when it's dark and you can't find the place it's a bit stressful, otherwise its lovely.

  • "We had a great time at sea u soon."

    Well positioned for all that we wanted to do. Flat was very comfortable having more than enough equipment to make our stay a good one. Having contacted the owner directly regarding a faulty kettle, it was replaced within 24 hours. Can't ask for more than that. Would certainly consider going back if we decide to stop in Runswick again.

  • "The location and setting was perfect with regard to accessing tourist attractions within and beyond the area."

    The flat was exceptional with regard to having a welcome pack, cleanliness and comfort. We would definitely come back again.

  • "I was reluctant to book the property because it was listed with Sykes."

    Their reputation, particularly during the pandemic, concerned me. The property though was fantastic. Clean and well appointed, some lovely local artwork and useful starter bits. We had a very good holiday, although I'm very glad we had friends staying at the bottom so we could leave our beach stuff rather than dragging them up the hill overnight!

  • "A most comfortable stay with quality furnishings throughout."

    Very well equipped for a self-catering stay. Perfect welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and wine; much appreciated. Beds comfy, towels fluffy. A quiet location close to the dog friendly RNLI patrolled beach and walking distance to two hotels with a bar and restaurant. No complaints from us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "This is a great property."

    Fully equipped for all your needs, clean, warm and comfortable. The location is perfect for you to leave the car and walk. The beach is 5-10 mins, great for fossil hunting, swimming, seal spotting or just soaking up the sun. The dog friendly pubs with food are even closer. The Cleveland way is on the doorstep and the bus stop is almost immediately outside the property so if you walk a long way you can get the bus back. Whitby is about 15mins drive and always a great day out. Can’t fault the property or the location.

    Nice decor with lots of local pictures on the walls. Good quality crockery, utensils etc. Welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits, milk, wine. There were a couple of things that needed addressing: shower head and hose needed a thorough clean and heated towel rail was very dusty. Lack of plug sockets in king-size bedroom was an inconvenience.

    Bottle of wine was a nice touch. The flat was lovely and clean with toiletries in the bathroom. Personally I found the beds a little too soft but the rest of my party were fine. The nice touch was we had a power cut and the people who look after the flat came over to check we were okay and had we found the torches.

    The beds were really comfy, fluffy towels, huge sets of quality crockery and glasses, and despite a large group being in the flat next door we couldn't hear a thing. So peaceful. There was nothing this place didn't have, and walking distance to the beach too. Perfect!

    Lots to see and do in the area, but a lovely house to relax in too. The kitchen had everything you could need - and more. The only downside [for us] was the steepness of the hill to the beach, and the parking charges if we took the car. Walking not being an option and no way could the wheel chair cope on that gradient!

Venture up to the first floor, where you will be welcomed into a contemporary-styled interior with everything you could possibly need during a week-long break.

Beyond here, is the well-equipped kitchen which comes with all the essentials required to whip up your own delicious meals before settling down at the dining table to plan the next day’s adventure.

For those feeling active, look forward to walking along the Cleveland Way, where you can discover a dramatic coastline and endearing heather moorland, as well as opportunities for cycling.

Alternatively, venture down to Runswick Bay’s sandy beach, where you can laze on the sands, walk along the coast or enjoy a spot of fossil hunting.

Brush up on the local history by spending an afternoon at the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre, and the Ironstone Mining Museum, or venture further afield to the historic town of Whitby.

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.
