Frank’s View is a first floor apartment set within the majestic, former Zetland Hotel. This Victorian building remains the most prominent feature of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, taking its name from the Earl of Zetland, who sold the land on which to develop the town. He also performed the formal opening of the hotel on 27 July 1863.
Frank’s View has some of the best views along the whole Yorkshire coastline, looking across the bay of Saltburn to Huntcliff and out to sea. You get a feeling of grandeur and olden day luxury as you make your way up the grand old staircase to the apartment. A balcony wraps around the exterior, making a perfect spot to sit and relax with a drink and watch the waves roll in and out again. There are two comfortably sized bedrooms and spacious living areas, all with fantastic views. There is also the benefit of a private parking space.
Saltburn is an up and coming seaside town with many restaurants and cafés, and there is always something new happening in the town. The town attracts surfers and fishermen, as well as those wanting to spend time building sandcastles. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink along the promenade and at the top of the cliff, and you can travel in style to both the promenade and the pier by using the oldest operating water-balance cliff lift in the country!
The Ship Inn along the beach is still famous for its link to pirates and smugglers, and you can get a feel for this as you walk the beach and admire the cliffs that surround the bay. The Cleveland Way snakes through the coastal area of the town, and stretches all along the cliff tops and down into various bays and coves along the Heritage Coast.
The town is right on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, so is ideally situated for those who want to walk or cycle on the moors and sample some of the prettiest countryside in the county, with its hundreds of pubs and restaurants serving home cooked food and a warm welcome. Take a nostalgic ride on the steam train that chugs its way from Whitby deep into the heart of the North York Moors, ’Heartbeat’ country and Pickering. Alternatively, explore the many bays and coves along the coast such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay or Staithes. Each has its own historical story of pirates and smuggling.
The harbour town of Whitby is just 20 miles away and is an experience of its own. Home of Whitby Abbey, which was made famous by Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’, cobbled back streets, quirky shops and Whitby harbour. Keep an eye out for the many festivals and events held here each year, from regattas to a Goth festival, or take a sea fishing trip on one of the many tourist boats.
York is just over an hour’s drive away, where you’ll find the National Railway Museum and the Jorvik Viking Centre, or just enjoy a lovely day out exploring the walls and cobbled streets. There is also a variety of theme parks in the area, such as Lightwater Valley, Beamish Museum and Flamingo Land to keep the young, and the young at heart entertained. Beach 250 yards. Shop 300 yards, pub 50 yards and restaurant 150 yards.
