This is a quiet coastal town, built as a retreat spa in the Victorian times. The coast is protected by National Trust and there are lovely walks around the town, beach and coastal paths. There are some very steep hills leading to the beach and pier, so don’t forget: if you go down, you will need to come back up again! Fortunately there is also a cliff lift that you can use, although it did close well before dark. History – If you like the Victorian age, Saltburn is your kind
This an amazing natural environment and it was nice not to see buildings for a while. It was a perfect place for long walks, cycling with the family and horse riding. But beware the tide table, or you will find yourself in trouble more quickly than you thought. The village was really cute but so full of holiday accommodation that this broke the spirit of the place a bit. In my opinion the parking is a bit expensive, but it does protect the island from being overrun with cars.
