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.

About the local area

Saltburn-by-the-Sea was developed as a seaside resort in the Victorian era on the back of the local ironstone industry, as it was thought the sea air and bathing in the sea were beneficial to health. The pier enabled visitors to walk out over the sea taking in the bracing sea air!
Rich in natural beauty and industrial heritage, Saltburn has been described as a hidden gem, with all your needs catered for within walking distance of the property. The wide sandy beach is great for strolling or simply relaxing whilst the children busy themselves building sandcastles. Other attractions in the resort include a miniature railway, a bandstand (with brass band concerts during the summer months), and magnificent woods leading to the Valley Gardens and Italian Gardens.
The town is situated on the Sustrans Cycle Route Number One, and there are opportunities for surfing, horse riding on the beach, walking and rock climbing on the moors. Many attractions in the area are easily accessed and include the Ironstone Museum at Skinningrove, the RSPB Salthome Wildlife Reserve and Discovery Centre near Middlesborough, and the landmark Transporter Bridge in Middlesborough, a 20-minute drive or train journey away. The fascinating university city of Durham is about 40 miles away, with its cobbled streets, castle and cathedral, and can be reached within an hour’s drive. Beamish Outdoor Museum is about 50 miles away and also worth a visit.
There are many seaside towns and fishing villages to visit and explore with varied and interesting histories from smugglers and explorers, to abbey ruins and tales of Dracula, including Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend and Runswick Bay, and Scarborough with traditional seaside amusements. Inland are the North York Moors with pretty villages including Goathland, better known as Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. At the end of a day spent exploring the area, why not try the award-winning fish and chips on the promenade?
