Goldsbrough is the name of a small village which can be seen from across the Bay, it is approximately 2 miles away from Runswick Bay. The village is classed as a small Hamlet in the Civil Parish of Lythe, North Yorkshire. It is a historical site, as the village used to be a Roman Signal Station.
Kettleness – Dog Friendly, Ground Floor.
Kettleness is the neighbouring village to Goldsbrough, which is fitting as the rooms are neighbours also. It is a lonely collection of houses, which is situated on the clifftop between Runswick Bay and Sandsend, The Cleveland Way Trail, passes straight through the centre of the Village. The Kettleness Railway Station was converted in the 1960’s by the East Cleveland Scout District, into an activity centre and is now used all year round by church organisations and youth clubs.

This room is named after Lingrow Close which is located in Runswick Bay on the main road.
Topmans – Second Floor, Juliet Balcony
This room is the highest room in our hotel, originally we thought it was named Topmans due to the fact its at the top of the building, however from digging a little deeper we found that it is actually named after Topmans Steel. Topmans steel is located to the West of Runswick Bay, and is used as a check point for walkers who travel the Cleveland Way.
