Dating back to 1863, The Zetland was one of the world’s first railway hotels, boasting its own private platform – a piece of history still visible today, complete with the original canopy and railway buffer. The Observatory’s crowning jewel is the viewing tower, affording guests unparalleled, uninterrupted vistas of the coast. Step out onto your private balcony and feel the invigorating sea breeze as you absorb the breathtaking views. As the day transitions into evening, settle into the armchairs and watch the sunset’s mesmerising transformation of the sky and sea. The glass tower, an intimate space designed for sharing treasured moments, provides a stark contrast to the social and spacious open plan living area, featuring its own balcony. Here, you’ll find a generously sized dining table and two sumptuous sofas that invite you to unwind. The kitchen is both well-equipped and spacious, ideal for families, with a breakfast bar for two offering more opportunities to appreciate the ever-changing seascapes. The apartment houses two spacious double bedrooms, one graced with its own en-suite shower. Completing the interior is a family bathroom featuring a shower over the bath, ensuring your comfort throughout your stay.
Despite the passage of time, this fabulous period property retains an air of grandeur, with high ceilings and vast hallways that hark back to a bygone era. Saltburn itself is a town steeped in coastal beauty, with attractions that include the Victorian Pier and the historic cliff tramway. This is a haven for surfers, and there is a surf school if you wish to embrace the waves, or you can watch the action from above with your uninterrupted views. At low tide the sandy beach is revealed, which stretches all the way to neighbouring Maske and Redcar.
Saltburn is a gateway to explore the Cleveland Way, a picturesque footpath along the clifftops taking you on a journey along the stunning Yorkshire coastline, providing breathtaking panoramic views, whilst connecting you to the neighbouring bays and coastal villages, including enchanting destinations including Staithes, Runswick Bay and Skinningrove, each offering unique experiences. Saltburn has a wonderful selection of restaurants, cafes, quirky bars and traditional pubs, all just steps away. You are perfectly positioned to enjoy the town’s attractions on foot. The Observatory at The Zetland is more than just a place to stay - it’s an opportunity to experience the rich history, stunning coastal vistas and unique charm that Saltburn and its surrounding destinations have to offer. Whether you’re seeking relaxation, outdoor adventures or a bit of both, this apartment is your perfect gateway to the breathtaking North Yorkshire coast.
