Skylight is a perfect apartment for a romantic break away from it all. The property has been refurbished in 2018 and benefits from a bright and spacious, living/dining room, a modern kitchen, bathroom, and a comfortable bedroom. There are fantastic sea glimpse views looking out over the stunning bay.

This third floor apartment with lift access is set within the imposing former Victorian Zetland Hotel. The Zetland Hotel building remains the most prominent feature of Saltburn, taking its name from the Earl of Zetland, who sold the Improvement Company the land on which to develop the town, and there is a sense of grandeur and olden day luxury as you enter this historic building.

Saltburn boasts a charming promenade and pier as well as a fabulous stretch of beach, and attracts surfers and fishermen alike. This seaside town is fast becoming a very popular holiday resort with plenty of restaurants and cafés to suit all preferences, and there is always something new happening in the town so there is a great buzz around the place. There are plenty of traditional pubs, licensed cafés and even a micro pub. The local inn along the beach is still famous for its link to pirates and smugglers in days gone by, 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 making this a fabulous base for those who enjoy walking.

Situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, this is a perfect base for those who want to sample some of the most beautiful scenery in the county, with its many pubs and restaurants serving home cooked food and offering a warming welcome in its many villages. Explore the pretty bays and coves along the stunning coastline such as Staithes, Runswick Bay, Robin Hood’s Bay and Sandsend. Take a relaxing trip on a steam train as it chugs its way from Whitby, deep into the heart of the North York Moors, through ‘Heartbeat’ country and on to the wonderful market town of Pickering.

The popular town of Whitby is just 30 minutes’ drive along the coast and is an experience in its own right. Home of majestic Whitby Abbey, made famous by Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’, cobbled back streets, quirky shops and the replica of Captain Cook’s ship, HMS Endeavour. There are many year-round festivals and events held here, from a regatta to a Goth festival. Alternatively, take a sea fishing trip on one of the many tourist boats.

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.

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'.
