The area is a delight for walkers and cyclists alike, with an abundance of routes to choose from that take in the breathtaking scenery that can be found in all directions. Enjoy a countryside walk, right from your doorstep, down into nearby Staithes and joining onto the Cleveland Way as it snakes across cliff tops and down into hidden coves and bays. Staithes is popular with tourists and has a number of traditional pubs, a coffee shop and even its own independent art gallery. It has a fascinating history of pirates and smugglers, as well as links to Captain Cook who worked here as a child. Nearby Saltburn-by-the-Sea is a fabulous up and coming holiday destination with plenty of places to eat and drink as well as a pier, and is well known in the area as a surfer’s paradise with a number of schools for those wanting to give it a try. There is also horse riding, fishing at Scaling Dam and golf nearby.
The Gothic town of Whitby is just 13 miles away and is famous for its links to Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It offers a hectic schedule of festivals and events all year round including the Goth Weekend, Folk Week and its own Regatta, as well as cobbled streets full of independent shops and traders. The Whitby Abbey towers over the town and can be reached by climbing the famous 199 steps and affords fantastic views of the town and out to sea. There are plenty of traditional dog friendly pubs with live music, tea rooms and delis, as well as some fantastic places to eat. Why not catch a tourist boat out to sea in search of minke whales and seals, or enjoy a trip on the steam train that snakes its way through the National Park into Heartbeat Country. There are plenty of seaside towns and villages to explore along this dramatic coastline, or take a trip to the walled city of York with its many attractions. There is so much to see and do in the area, and Blackgill Lodge is the perfect romantic retreat to base yourself from. Beach 3 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub/restaurant 2½ miles.

We could have not selected a better option . We love the coast and the walks hence the cottage was perfect to be so close to amazing locations. It was a cosy place with a wonderful garden and you will feel at home. Loved particularly the kitchen and the living area.

This is a lovely little cottage, well appointed, in a very secluded location with wonderful views from the balcony. The track to the cottage is a little bumpy and may be unsuitable for low vehicles but it does make for a very peaceful rural escape. Great base for exploring the coast line with the dogs. I didn’t use the shared garden but it did seem very inviting. The upstairs bedroom is very spacious and I loved the shower. Everything was very clean, on arrival there was a basket of goodies that was much appreciated. The only negative was the dogs welcome notice that asks for dogs to be kept downstairs but there is no stair gate or door on the bedroom and I don’t crate my dogs nor was there space to do so, so this was a very forlorn hope with my two. Fortunately there are hard floors throughout so it was easy to vacuum before leaving.

A lovely quiet get away. Good location for walking (but there are hills). Ideal for exploring the NE coast as everything is accessible within a 20min drive. Plenty of pubs to eat, but you’ll have to drive. Saltburn is a must. Very friendly host at the property.
