  • “Seagull Lodge in Runswick Bay was perfect.”

    It was immaculate and surprisingly spacious with lots of storage and all mod cons in a beautiful quiet setting and there was a thoughtful welcome pack which we didn’t expect when we arrived. The owner was friendly but not intrusive. We would definitely book again or recommend to friends.

The property

Nestled within The Pines at Runswick Bay holiday park, which rests peacefully beside the North Yorkshire coast in the fishing village of Runswick Bay is Seagull Lodge, a single-storey dwelling surrounded by picturesque countryside.

This spacious lodge is ideal for a small family or group wanting to explore the delights of the North Yorkshire coastline, as well as the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors National Park.

Head up the set of steps onto the wooden decking and enter the property into a bright and airy open-plan living space, boasting neutral hues and two sets of patio doors which open up onto the enclosed decking, where you can sit out with a glass of wine or an alfresco meal in the late afternoon sunshine.

Cook up a treat for the rest of your group in the fully fitted kitchen, which offers plenty of storage space, plus worktop space for prepping ingredients, and even a dishwasher to take care of any washing up.

Gather around the dining table and savour a home-cooked treat together, before retreating to the sitting room and reclining onto the sofa in front of the fireplace as you decide what film to watch on the TV.

Get some rest in the master king-size double bedroom, which boasts a walk-in wardrobe for all of your belongings, a TV and an en-suite shower room, where you can prepare for each day.

The twin bedroom also benefits from handy storage, as well as access to the stylish panelled bathroom suite.

Explore the picturesque Runswick Bay and enjoy a stroll along the sand of its sheltered bay, backed by spectacular cliffs and incredible moorland, or perhaps dip your toes in the water and build some sandcastles on a summer's day.

Walkers can also appreciate the coastal and moorland views on offer along the spectacular Cleveland Way.

Nearby Staithes offers a host of eateries, quaint shops and a superb art gallery to peruse, while nine miles south along the coast brings you to the popular resort of Whitby and a host of attractions.

Climb the 199 steps towards the ruins of its Gothic abbey - thought to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula - and soak up the tremendous coastal views from the top, then explore a network of cobbled streets, dotted with charming shops, pubs and eateries.

Grab some delicious fish and chips and enjoy them on Whitby's iconic sandy beach, or hop on a boat tour to be in with a chance of spotting whales.

Continue south along the coast towards Robin Hood's Bay, home of the National Trust's Old Coastguard Station, before making your way to the Victorian resort of Scarborough and be spoilt for choice by its two sandy beaches, imposing castle and family-friendly attractions, including Alpamare UK, SEA LIFE Scarborough and the stunning Japanese-inspired Peasholm Park.

You won't be short of wonderful days out and the opportunity to make lasting memories with loved ones during your stay at Seagull Lodge.

About the location

RUNSWICK BAY

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.
