Runswick Bay is a village divided in two, with one half located at the top of the cliff and the other at the bottom. The newer portion of the village, located at the top, has a road leading down to the old fishing village, nestled in a sheltered location at the foot of the cliff. The old village is a picturesque artist’s paradise with its quaint cottages and colourful gardens, overlooking one of the loveliest sandy bays in the North of England, indeed, the beach was named the best beachcombing beach in the UK. Although a popular and busy holiday resort in summer, Runswick Bay can also offer a peaceful, relaxing break at any time of the year.
In the old village there is a pub and a café, whilst at the top of the hill there is a second pub and a fully licensed hotel. A mile up the road, in the nearby village of Hinderwell, there is a Post Office, newsagent and general store along with a butchers shop.
Plum Tree Cottage is one of the old fishermens’ cottages. Sleeping up to 4, it is situated in the heart of the old village only 100 yards from the beach. From its elevated position, Plum Tree Cottage offers staggering views from the lounge balcony, which is located on the 1st floor, where one can sit and watch the ever changing sea and all the passing sea traffic – either from the balcony itself or from behind the comfort of the French windows.
