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. It will also appeal to cyclists as it has National Cycling Network Routes in both directions.
Further afield you’ll find the Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough and the medieval walled city of York, as well as Beamish Museum and the Yorkshire Dales which are just an hour’s drive away. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
