This Grade II listed property has been welcoming guests for over 150 years. Originally the Zetland, a luxurious hotel opened in 1863, 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.

The Grand Terrace 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 sweeping stone steps to the apartment. The terrace wraps itself around the exterior, making a perfect spot to sit and relax with a drink and watch the waves roll in and out again. The apartment itself was once was the hotel lobby, bar and dining room. In a wonderful location, you are in a prime position to unwind by the sea.

This apartment has lots of thoughtful extras, making it the perfect choice for families or couples. Features including high ceilings and chandeliers add to its character, invoking the grand Victorian history.

Step up to the private terrace and take in the views, the fresh sea air, and listen to the waves breaking below. Al fresco meals are a must when the sun is out. The interior of the apartment is bright, spacious and welcoming, and the kitchen is well equipped, and perfect for cooking family meals together. The open plan living/dining room looks out onto the breath taking, panoramic views over the sea. On an atmospheric stormy day, stay warm and cosy whilst watching the waves whip into a frothing frenzy.

Saltburn itself is stunning, with a glorious, long sandy beach, a pier, and lots of quirky bars, restaurants and independent shops. Take in the views on a stroll along the promenade and at the top of the cliff, you can travel in style to both the promenade and the pier by using the oldest operating water-balance cliff lift in the country! Saltburn is a surfer’s paradise and no matter what the season, you will see figures out at sea riding the waves. Nearby, you will find a local surf school where you can have lessons and hire equipment so you can join in the fun.

A popular 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. Along the Heritage Coastline there are beautiful beaches, picturesque villages and wonderful scenic walks. Staithes, Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay are all just a short drive away, and for keen walkers, you can follow the Cleveland Way along the cliff tops. You are also surrounded by the North York Moors National Park. Beach ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 40 yards.

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.
