Nearby Points of Interest

  • Runswick Bay (1 mile)
    With its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roofed cottages, Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire Coast's prettiest destinations. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views.
  • Staithes (3 miles)
    With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, Staithes has the air of a place lost in time. Once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast, this coastal hamlet is now a well-loved base for exploring Yorkshire's cliff top paths and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach.
  • Sandsend and Whitby (4 mi)
    Sandsend and Whitby are 2 lovely places to visit after a good nights sleep at The Ellerby. Sandsend is on the way to Whitby and a great place to stop and take a refreshing walk along the beach or sit in a cafe and watch as the waves smack into the sea wall and spray the road. Whitby is a well known tourist destination, with its Abbey, Whitby Jet jewellery and cobbled streets with a treasure trove of shops.
  • Saltburn by the Sea (12 miles)
    The delightful coastal town Saltburn-by-the-sea bestows plenty of Victorian charm and thrills. From the water balanced cliff lifts to the last remaining pier in Yorkshire, Saltburn promises its visitors an authentic seaside experience! There's plenty to entertain too as the town has an up and coming arts scene, lots of restaurants and plenty of daring water sports to try.
  • Goathland (14 mi)
    The village was the setting of the fictional village of Aidensfield in the Heartbeat television series set in the 1960s. Many landmarks from the series are recognisable, including the stores, garage/funeral directors, the public house and the railway station. Goathland railway station was used as the location for Hogsmeade railway station in the Harry Potter films, and the line filmed for Harry's journey.
