English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


With sea views, this light and airy holiday home is a great base for touring the coast or moors.

Situated at the top of the picturesque village of Runswick Bay and offering secluded gardens and parking, this delightful detached holiday cottage enjoys views across the cliff tops down to the sea. A tumble of pretty little cottages, almost clinging to the cliffs, leads down to the wide sandy beach at the bottom of the bay, surrounded and sheltered by the rugged cliff line. Cliff top walks afford breathtaking views across the North Yorkshire coastline as far as the historic port of Whitby, known for its connections with Captain James Cook and the novel of Dracula, written by Bram Stoker. Dracula was published in 1897 with many of the early chapters recognisably set in Whitby - the various sites including Tate Hill Sands, the abbey, the church and its steps, the graveyard and Stoker’s house which have all become huge tourist attractions and are well worth a visit. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the Whitby Lifeboat Museum are also of interest. The North Yorkshire Moors National Railway can be boarded to discover the delights and beauty of the Esk Valley, travelling through Heartbeat’s very own village of Aidensfield. This truly is an ideal location for exploring Yorkshire’s Heritage coastline with Whitby just 9 miles and Filey and Bridlington a little further. Scarborough is also located on this coastline and is the oldest resort in the country, offering Scarborough Castle, just east of the town centre and between two golden sandy bays, many interesting museums and of course the bays with many amusements, Sea Life Centre, cruises and boat trips. The beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Parks await exploration, with pretty little villages such as Lealholm, Rosedale, Egton, Danby and Castleton tucked away in the valleys. Shop 1½ miles.

    The cottage is situated in a beautiful area with easy access to other areas. Very comortable and clean. Great views from the bedroom upstairs. Good with the downstairs bedrooms and bathroom for people who have walking difficulties. Enjoyable holiday. Couple of eating places at the end of the road.

    The cottage was spotless when we arrived with tea, biscuits,a bottle of wine and fresh flowers to greet us. The owners were very friendly when we phoned with lots of suggestions for places to visit. Our grandchildren aged 7 & 4 loved the games and aga toast. This is a delightful house perfect for a multigenerational family.

    Fantastic holiday house. They did all the little things that matter. We have stayed in so many places before where we and up saying, it's nice but why couldn't they just have done this it would't take that much effort..'. However at Seacot all the little things had been thought of and done. This is without doubt the best holiday house we have ever stayed in.
