About Us

Many of you will know of Romantic Cottage Holidays which was founded by Helen Massey in 2003.

In 2018, 15 years after inception, the business changed its name to "Runswick Bay Cottages" , cementing the focus on providing high quality cottages solely, in this pretty North Yorkshire village.

Helen runs the business single handedly and that's why you're assured of a personal service.

Fortunate enough to have grown up in Runswick Bay, the cottage owners are personal friends and as a cottage owner herself, Helen is best placed to advise about how to get the best from your holiday, whether it be for 3 nights or 3 weeks!

Unlike our competitors - there are no hidden charges or booking fees when you book with Runswick Bay Cottages. We're also not pushy sales agents, so if you have a query or question about your stay - just call, email or Whatsapp!
