Runswick Bay, located between the seaside towns of Whitby and Saltburn, has been described by reviewers on TripAdvisor as a “hidden gem”. The sheltered bay is known for its red roof cottages that make up the historic fishing village and is a hot spot for rock pooling, fossil hunting and sandy coast.

With its secluded bay providing a perfectly secretive site, it’s no wonder why this picturesque village is seeing many Brits choose this as their place to holiday.

Earlier in the year, Runswick Bay was ranked as one of the best beaches in the UK, reaching number one the Sunday Times list in 2020.

Yorkshire has another reason to feel proud as the Yorkshire Dales also made the top 10 list for those seeking a rural getaway.

Staycations are at an all time high in the wake of the pandemic, and unsurprisingly several places across the UK are seeing places book up fast.

This year, families are willing to spend on average £940 for a summer holiday, including their accommodation, travel, food and drink.

Sykes Holiday Cottages reported that forty-six per cent of those surveyed said they are now more likely to consider a staycation than they were pre-pandemic.

Other areas seeing a rise in bookings include Cornwall, East Anglia and North Wales, whether it’s a camping, pet-friendly or city break.

CEO of Sykes Holiday Cottages, Graham Donoghue said: “More Brits than ever are getting to experience everything the UK has to offer – whether that’s beach breaks along the South coast or exploring the picture-perfect Peak District.

“The pandemic will have a lasting impact on us all, and this is especially true for how people holiday. We expect the shift towards holidays at home to stick and hope to continue to see staycation destinations outside of the usual honeypot locations grow in popularity in the years to come.”
