The nearby beach is perfect for setting up beach camp for the day or enjoy a stroll along the coastal path to Saltburn-by-the-Sea, where you can then join the Cleveland Way. The centre point of this Edwardian terraced house is the large kitchen. A great place for all the family to gather at meal times or to enjoy a good old fashioned family games night. The interior is modern and boasts a lantern roof making it light and airy as well as French doors leading out into a little suntrap courtyard. There is a separate living room complete with a Smart TV and wonderful wood burner, perfect to relax in front of after a good days exploration around the fabulous local area.

Marske-by-the-Sea is a quaint little village with a number of dog friendly pubs offering a warm welcome, a home cooked meal and real ale, as well as a number of coffee shops and general stores. But the beach has to be the main attraction and it goes on for miles! The famous Cleveland Way snakes its way across the cliff tops and along the beach to Saltburn and beyond. It makes for a fun short walk or a stepping stone to something longer as The Cleveland Way runs south for miles and miles towards Whitby and Scarborough.
Neighbouring Saltburn-by-the-Sea is a great place to visit, with fantastic views, a wonderful sandy bay, a pier as well as ice cream shops, surf schools and some excellent restaurants and pubs. The North York Moors National Park is on your doorstep and the Danby Visitor Centre is worth a visit offering information about some of the fantastic places of interest dotted amongst the stunning North Yorkshire scenery. From Roseberry Topping to Sutton Bank you’ll find ancient abbeys to explore, waterfalls and rivers and some quaint villages where time has stood still such as Goathland and Grosmont where you can jump on board the Harry Potter express as it steams its way from Whitby to Pickering. Whitby is well worth a visit with the stunning Abbey stood proudly over the town, climb the 199 steps to the top for some fantastic views out to sea or enjoy strolling around the cobbled back streets. There are regular pleasure boat trips that head out in search of minke whales and dolphins, or take in one of the regular festivals and events such as the Goth Weekend and Regatta. Beach 200 yards.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
