Neighborhood

Located in the heart of the town, the apartment is only a short walk from the beach and lower promenade. Take the oldest functioning cliff lift in the UK down to the promenade and you’ll arrive at the 208-metre pier which stretches out into the sea. The long sandy shores are overlooked by colourful boutique beach huts and high cliffs tower in the distance. The apartment is close to all local amenities including independent shops, bars, restaurants and bistros.

Saltburn has plenty of beautiful walks too. The Valley Gardens are a maze of paths and tracks which wind through the flowers and woodland. If you want to explore further, The Cleveland Way National Trail is over 100 miles long and the lovely Saltburn is featured. If you fancy a 17.5 mile jaunt, start at Saltburn and walk your way to Sandsend. This walk is a great way to explore the North Yorkshire coastline and the views are beautiful!

Getting Around
In The Key Of Sea is within walking distance of all that Saltburn has to offer and within 30 minutes’ drive time of Staithes, Whitby, Middlesbrough and the North Yorkshire Moors.

Saltburn Train Station is a short walk away and has routes to Longbeck, Redcar, Middlesbrough and Darlington with connecting trains to Newcastle, York, Leeds, Manchester and London.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Saltburn. Hop on the Arriva North East route and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Staithes, Runswick Bay and Whitby. The Moorsbus route has drop offs at Newton Under Roseberry, Great Ayton, Stokesley and Helmsley.

The flat was well equipped, clean and tidy. Designed by a follower of Buddha. <br/>Street parking (in winter) was available nearby.<br/>Top Tip - take your own illumination if you want to read in the lounge.<br/>Big doubts about the company. They needed to be prompted on the arrival day for access details.<br/>Turns out they use another company to 'verify your identity' and take £250 deposit off your credit card. Then they have the cheek to charge a non-refundable £10, <br/>The clue's in the company name - Superhog! <br/>Then they needed another prompt, a week after the stay, to return the deposit.

Quiet location!<br/>Website shows a bright clean app.<br/>Reality was it was dark and gloomy and rather grubby in places. I managed to get hot water in bathroom sink once in 2 days. Was hit with an extra £25 payment after we had booked and paid.<br/>Do not know why you need 19 emails during booking and after!

Location & decor<br/>Damp smell on arrival. Not been aired. Sofa damp Linen clean but pillows very poor - one very lumpy the other smelt of sweat. Dirty glass in cupboard with mould in it. Overpriced & extra charge waiver fee- made it a most as expensive as the hotel which included breakfast.

Very nicely appointed flat, well situated within walking distance of Saltburn Beach. Good kitchen, living area, a nice shower and a very comfortable bed

Peter

The issue we had was with the management company Host and Stay which required from us a non refundable £25 payment or an up front refundable payment of £250 plus a non refundable £10 fee for admin . These charges were not made explicit on the Booking.com listing of the property and notified to us after booking. Our apartment stay in Whitby the day before was excellent with no hidden charges or deposit. We also experienced a barrage of fine print emails from the company - we had 27 in total which was not conducive to a relaxing break. We have still not received the deposit 8 days since we got home although we have been notified it will be returned

A lovely basement flat, a bit bohemian but with all the mod cons. Just like home from home, it had everything you needed. The bed was particularly comfy. Well placed for the beach, a Spar and Sainsbury's on the doorstep, and plenty of takeaways a short walk away.

I stayed two weeks in the Airbnb for a business tripp. The Apartment was super clean and the bed very comfortable. I really enjoyed the underfloor heating. But in the bathroom is no underfloor heating, so it was really cold in the bathrom, especially the floor, because the Apartment is in the basement of the building.

We had a great break in this basement apartment. Ironically if the booking.com listing had made it clearer that it was a basement apartment we would have dismissed the listing, and missed the chance to stay here. The flat is well thought out, and very well designed. Comfortable and all you need for a short break. We were impressed that the host had read previous reviews and had posted litlle notices and made changes to address the points. The bed was large and very comfortable. The electric shower worked well, and was hot! <br/>On street parking worked well. Saltburn itself was OK, and we had a good meal at the seaview restaurant on the prom.<br/>The shower area was quite slippy and could do with a shower mat. The hot water - for washing up - could have been hotter- but we didnt do much washing up. The sofa is quite low - we are at an age where if your knees are higher than your bum it can be difficult to stand up - but it was comfortable. The wardrobe in the bedroom is fine, but if you're not staying long, a hook rail would work fine, and give you just a little more space in the bedroom. These are all picky things about a fine place to stay.

This property is a little gem. It is situated in the basement of the house and is beautiful.<br/>The bed is massive and comfortable, the kitchen/livingroom is tastefully decorated.<br/>Its a great use of the space.<br/>The property is situated very close to the beach and all local amenities.<br/>We couldn't have wished for a better place.<br/>Will definitely be back.<br/>There was nothing to dislike.

This apartment is comfortable and is in a perfect, central location in Saltburn, an easy stroll from the seafront. There are some delightful bars in the town, and the whole experience is relaxing and unrushed. Communication beforehand, during and after our stay was excellent, and we had very prompt support when we had a query. All in all, In the Key of Sea can be highly recommended!

The property was decorated very nicely and was very well-equipped. Very comfortable bed, and great shower. Great location, easily walkable to everywhere. Easy access / check-in with key safe. Good communication. Underfloor heating which is easy to control.<br/>Only minor points:<br/>- Would be good to have a proper handle on the inside of the apartment door (as you have to pull it closed with the little Yale lock knob, which is a bit tricky as the door gets stuck a bit). <br/>- There is a slight ‘basement’ smell (but the property is very clean and no discernible damp). <br/>- It would be nice to have a better fitting blind in the bedroom (and one for the fire door) to block<br/>out the light better.

I booked this property for my mum and step dad. the decor could not have been any more perfect for my mum. my stepdad loved the tv in the bedroom and the shower. myself and kids loved the Buddhas. they want to come back but they would be taking their dog next time so will look elsewhere.<br/>the steps are a little narrow and steep.

An amazing apartment great use of space, home from home everything you need for an amazing break away. <br/>The central location gives you access to the town's amenities, supermarket, bars restaurants some fantastic café's. <br/>The location also allows you access to all the local attractions, the beach, the Pier, Valley gardens, miniature railway and the Victorian Tea Rooms all are within walking distance of the apartment. <br/>We couldn't have asked for anything better, fantastic apartment, fantastic location and accessibility to local attractions cannot recommend enough.

Brilliant location for exploring the local area. And plenty to do.<br/> The accommodation is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for a few days break. The bed was super comfy and the quilt was lovely and lightweight and cosy. Spotlessly clean.<br/>The living area kitchen is really spacious.<br/>The hosts are local and we're really friendly when we saw them. Easy check in<br/>Pubs and restaurants withing walking distance. With lots to do in the area.<br/>With it being a basement accommodation it is a bit dull inside with not much natural light. <br/>It's OK for a few days but i couldn't spend any longer there.

Great communication from the host with easy check-in and check-out. The flat is beautifully decorated and clean, with a comfy super king bed. The location was great as it was near to the station, shops, and places to eat. One night of my stay I went to a place called Parlours which was nearby and that had a nice tapas-like menu including some good veggie and vegan options. I'd happily stay here again.

Cool, quirky little flat situated on the Main Street in Saltburn . Next door to the guitar shop. Parked on the street right outside the flat . Cool decoration and big comfy sofa . It is below street level and down quite a few stairs but windows in the living space and bedroom let light in . A little bit odd that theres a window shaped hole in the wall between the bathroom and kitchen and just a blind . Guessing it’s for ventilation . The super king bed is very comfy , no noise at all . Had an amazing stay in saltburn and Milton Street has some excellent craft beer bars and independent restaurants. So close to the sea too . Will definitely be back .
