The living room’s large sectional sofa is perfectly placed to gaze out over Whitby’s rooftops from the trio of windows, while the bedrooms upstairs – tucked beneath the building’s eaves – boast vistas of hilltop St Mary’s Church from their charming skylights. When you’re not soaking up the beach vibes at home, go out and sink your toes in the sand at Whitby Beach, a seven-minute walk away. You’re also just a five-minute walk from the town’s famous 199 Steps, while countless shops and fish and chips restaurants wait to be discovered right outside your door.

Peace On The Horizon

Peace On The Horizon, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire, UK

Peace On The Horizon, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire, UK

Click to book Peace On The Horizon now: from £110 per night If we told you to imagine a postcard-perfect coastal village, you'd probably picture something like Runswick Bay. Cute clusters of red-roofed cottages hug a sheltered stretch of sandy beach, where you can do all the lovely seaside things - explore rock pools, go on coastal walks at sunset and, of course, consume copious amounts of ice cream. After a hard day breathing in all that fresh sea air, this cabin is a welcome base to return to. Making memories with loved ones is easy in the open plan living space, while two sun-kissed terraces are perfect for leisurely breakfasts and even more leisurely evening drinks. Nippy nights are no bother when you're curled up on the sofa by the fire. And if you've fallen for this area's seaside charms, you are well positioned to explore the nearby coastal gems of North Yorkshire, including Whitby, Staithes, Sandsend and Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone, Plum Guide home in North Yorkshire

Romancing the Stone, Plum Guide home in North Yorkshire

Click to book Romancing the Stone now: from £200 per night This charming home in the heart of Yorkshire is a real escape from reality. A traditional stone cottage in the village of Crayke, it’s got bags of character, plenty of style and next-level comfort. Take the living room, for example. Does anything sound cosier than sinking into the plush sofa and warming your feet on the glow from the wood-burner? The kitchen, complete with an AGA, is well equipped for creating an impressive feast, which is just as well as there are excellent dining spaces to choose from here. The dining room, with its original fireplace, has an atmospheric feel, but in the summer, a leisurely dinner in the wild-flower filled garden is a delight. There are outstanding walks and cycle trails nearby, an award-winning pub (The Durham Ox) is a 200m dander away, and for history and culture, York is a 14-mile drive. Sleeps up to 5 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
