We have chosen 7 stunning holiday cottages in Runswick Bay that make you feel at home from the moment you step inside.
Runswick Bay sits at the northern end of a bay, well-sheltered below Lingrow Knowle, and in fact, it almost seems that its cottages are huddled together for shelter and warmth. This lovely little village on the North Yorkshire Coast has become a popular holiday destination sitting below North York Moors National Park. It actually slipped into the sea in the 17th Century and had to be rebuilt slightly further south with sea walls and boulder piles added for protection.
There are numerous lovely walks in the surrounding area and this is definitely one of Runswick Bay’s major attractions. Formerly a fishing village, Runswick Bay with its sandy beach and sea is a great setting.
