Description

This semi-detached cottage is located in the old fishing village of Runswick Bay, within the North York Moors National Park. The village overlooks the stunning sheltered bay, one of many unspoilt coves down this coast and is a stopover for many of the weary walkers covering the last stretch of the Cleveland Way down the east coast. Why not try some of the walk yourself and take the coastal walk down to Whitby, and catch the local transport back. The rugged coastline takes you on a spectacular walk with breathtaking views. East Cottage is a semi-detached cottage perched at the top of the bay where a short stroll down the winding cobbled road leads onto a sandy beach. Situated just 9 miles north of the town of Whitby, famous for the beautiful Whitby Abbey and the busy working harbour. Head inland and you are on the beautiful North York Moors with the steam railway travelling from Whitby down to the market town of Pickering. East Cottage has been tastefully decorated to a very good standard and is a cosy retreat to come back to after that long walk. Stop off at the village pub and chat to some of the locals, only a minute’s walk from the cottage. On the ground floor is an open plan living space with a lovely kitchen area and a wood burner in the living area. The bedroom takes up the whole of the first floor giving lots of space and light. East Cottage is a stunning little property, perfect for that Yorkshire break. Beach 500 yards. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 100 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.
