Runswick Bay

Clinging to the cliff at the northern end of the Yorkshire Coast, south of Staithes, you will find the charming village of Runswick Bay. The red-roofed cottages and colourful fishing boats provide a beautiful setting for a day out at the beach, and an Instagram worthy backdrop. Here you can enjoy all your classic seaside activities including rock pooling, fossil hunting, sandcastle building and walking. Runswick Bay is yet another of the Yorkshire coastal villages set on the famous Cleveland Way, so be sure to bring your walking boots!

For those who like a little bit of history, you will want to visit the RNLI lifeboat station or the tiny Methodist chapel (now privately owned), built in the early 1800s by the women of the village and situated right on the seafront.
