Get ready to admire the view because Alice Hill Cottage has one of the best in Runswick Bay from its expansive bay window.
This charming property offers generous sized accommodation for 2 people and one well behaved pet, is well maintained and benefits from its own private roof balcony with more breathtaking seaviews.
In a quieter part of the lower village, there is a short flight of stairs up to the front door which then allows you to take in the full panorama of Runswick Bay from this private base.
(We must advise that there are approx 25 steep steps up to the cottage front door which may be unsuitable for those less agile – please see photos – but that’s why we have an amazing view of the bay!)
Alice Hill Cottage has accommodation over 2 floors and is maintained to a good standard. It features Farrow & Ball paints, tasteful bespoke furnishings and original Ercol furniture, exposed stone walls and a stunning view from the biggest bay window in the village. It also has a secret balcony / terrace (via further steps) which offers more amazing seaviews and private outside space – which is a rarity in Runswick Bay.
Please note a land line telephone can be made available at this cottage upon request only. (Charges apply)
There is no mobile telephone reception in Runswick Bay. Wifi available at this property. Please note any adverse weather may affect this service so cannot be relied upon due to our rural location.
