The Yorkshire Coast is full of hidden gems tucked away in its bays and this red-roofed community of cottages a stone’s throw from Whitby is one of the most popular villages in the UK – and with good reason. Runswick Bay has a perfect mix of sandy beaches with rocks perfect for fossil hunting and idyllic picket fence gardens.
The village was recently featured in Garrington Property Finders best place to live due to its red roof cottages, pedestrianised roads and perfect for those who enjoy a coastal walk.
They said: “Seaside towns tend to have much to offer residents, a good selection of amenities as standard, a sense of permanently being on holiday as there is usually some form of tourist attraction nearby and of course, the best bit, immediate access to the coast.”
It is situated along the Cleveland Way, so you can enjoy one of the UK’s best National Trails by just stepping out of your house. The Property Finder did concise that houses rarely come on the market in this area and it’s not surprising.
Found in the North York Moor National Park, Runswick Bay regularly features in the list of best beaches in the UK and is home to just 14 residents yet still includes a fantastic pub and cafes.
Garrington writes how seaside towns are beginning to be seen differently: “Over the years, as transport and communication connections have improved and the way people work, particularly the increasing ability to work remotely, has changed more and more people have chosen to plant their roots by the sea and set up home in a seaside town.
