About Us

Romantic Cottage Holidays 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 we'd be happy to hear from you!
