Situated just a 10 minute walk away from the breath-taking North Yorkshire coast, this 1880s, old miner’s terraced cottage is perfect for those looking for a ‘get away from it all’ type of holiday. The cottage boasts a beautiful meadow view from the rear of the property and a sea view from the front bedroom window. The traditional miners’ village of Loftus is an ideal base from which to explore both the North York Moors and the Yorkshire coast.
There are two fantastic bays nearby which form part of the stunning Yorkshire Heritage Coast with its towering cliffs, sandy beaches and traditional seaside resorts. The Cleveland Way snakes its way along the coast towards the lovely Victorian town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea with its pier and cliff lift and the quaint fishing village of Staithes is only 4 miles away, making this the perfect retreat for those who enjoy the great outdoors. The coastal towns of Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay and Redcar are also within easy reach.
The wonderful fishing town of Whitby is just a half hour drive away, with its historic abbey, bustling marina and famous fish and chips, making it a great place for all the family. It is also home to the bi annual Goth Weekend, annual Whitby Regatta and the setting of the Bram Stoker’s Gothic novel Dracula.
The natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park begins just 2 miles away from the property and has some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK, home to villages such as Goathland (also known as Aidensfield from Heartbeat) Lealholm and Grosmont where you can catch a train on the Grosmont to Pickering railway line where the steam train operates. The area is perfect for walkers and hikers, birdwatchers, surfers and families as the beach is within easy reach and for wet days there is a swimming pool and leisure centre in walking distance.

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'.
