The village of Runswick shelters at the northern end of a beautiful sandy beach.
Narrow paths wind between the attractive cottages and houses with their small colourful gardens. The thatched property on the seafront is one of the last remaining thatched houses on the Yorkshire coast.
Everything appears to cling to the steep hillside. Due to the instability of the soft, slippery Jurassic shales there was a landslip in 1682 and the whole village had to be rebuilt. Villages also consists of a camp site, caravan site, bed & breakfast and hotel accommodation, restaurant, cafe/tea shop , public house serving bar meals, public telephone box, regular bus service, a church and picnic area.
