CASTLE HOUSE, RUNSWICK BAY

Discover this little seaside stunner, recently renovated and bursting with charm to offer guests a super Luxe, sandy stay...

If you like your breaks spent doing almost nothing – lazing about in silk PJs with a mug of coffee in hand, a paper or a good book on the go and the sound of crashing waves lulling your mind into a quiet pace – then you’re in the same camp as us. It’s what we love most about away-from-it-all weekend breaks.

Castle House is a new discovery for us – a small, three-bed stunner perched at the top of Runswick Bay on the North Yorkshire coast. With its breathtaking, sweeping views of the nearby curl of beach, deliciously cosy interiors (wood-burning stove, heaps of throws and pillows, white wash walls, chic Smeg and Bosch appliances, nautical-inspired bits and bobs – that kind of thing), it’s a superb little find – everything we desire in a shore-side pad.

It sleeps up to six and guests can curl up in two doubles and one single (with bunk beds for little ones age seven and over). Both boudoirs boast dreamy sea views to swoon over, lovely, chunky oak furniture and soothing sea-blue walls. There’s a shower room and one bathroom, along with a generously appointed kitchen for all your cooking needs (seafood linguine anyone? Fresh kippers for brekkie?)

We also love the private patio and terrace – a great spot to enjoy a little alfresco brunch, watch the wind whip up the waves and listen to the gulls.

There’s not much to see in Runswick Bay itself, so we like the idea of getting up early in the morning and strolling up to Cleveland Way and Robin Hood’s Bay for a hefty dose of fresh, sea air. Sometimes, a sandy afternoon and a little pub grub (there’s plenty to be had around these parts) is all you need.
