Property Details

The Space
With stunning interiors throughout, The Snug has been recently renovated to the highest standard. You’ll be welcomed into the cosy and stylish living room which features traditional wooden beams and a flat screen Smart TV. Modern furnishings, such as the grey sofas, contrast perfectly with the fireplace and original cottage door.

Continue onto the next room and you’ll be in the dining area. Dark sage green wood panelling creates a calming and relaxing space. The solid wood dining table commands the room making it ideal for socialising and entertaining.

Climb up two small steps and you’ll find yourself in the kitchen. The traditional, cream kitchen units are contrasted perfectly with white, brick style tiles and dusky pink coloured walls. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine. All cookware and dishes are provided so you’ll have everything you need for your self-catering stay.

Perfect for alfresco dining and unwinding in the evening with a glass of something bubbly, you'll feel relaxed in this desired patio area. There is also a BBQ for you to use throughout your stay!

Head back to the living room and the stairs will take you up to three bedrooms and the bathroom.

The first bedroom is a tranquil haven. Plush grey carpets compliment the light-coloured walls, and you’ll notice pops of mustard yellow in the soft furnishings. The comfy, King Size bed is perfect after a long day of exploring North Yorkshire.

Next is the adorable children’s room which has cute, wooden bunkbeds and a patterned wall. The Snug is perfect for families and it caters for children with books, toys and children’s dinnerware.

This was our second stay at The Snug. We love the location and the layout. The kitchen has everything you need.<br/><br/>We were disappointed in the cleanliness of the property this time. It was spotless when we visited last year, but this year it was dirty and there were a lot of spider webs. The beds are very low and a challenge for older folks to get up from. The back garden definitely needs some TLC.



Great location. Lovely house. Had everything you need. Very well suited for young children. Thank you for a lovely break.



Immaculate , well equipped spacious home. Fantastic and immediate amenities. Extremely quite even though positioned on the main rd . The property has the most incredible view from the rear bedroom and Dog friendly too! .



Beautiful property very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Everything you need for a short break. Situated in the heart of a village with the Co Op a 2 minute walk away and several takeaways/ places to eat close by, would definitely recommend.



The Snug was a great base to explore the area. Saltburn and the coast down to Whitby are 5 min/30minutes away. Dalby Forest was a hit for Mountain biking. The cottage was beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming.



Very beautiful cottage, decor was well considered and stylish. So well equipped with all you need! Plus so lovely to have beds ready and towels provided:) <br/>Perfect for families with children-toys & books, baby gates, children’s plates etc. The child’s room was gorgeous, again beautifully decorated with a lovely bunk bed. <br/>Location is fab for lots of costal towns which are beautiful! <br/>The village is perfect for getting everyday essentials, a good takeaway, chemist etc. <br/>We also found a park in walking distance for our dog and kids! <br/>Have recommended to friends and we would happily return! <br/>Thank you x



Plenty of space and nice amenities. Good location.



Such a lovely little property, especially for young families. The house has a selection of toys, books and child's cutlery etc. It was clean and warm, the heating kicked in and promptly heated the whole house. Also a great location, with a supermarket on the doorstep. We had a perfect stay at The Snug and can't wait to return.



This was probably one of the most well equipped Airbnbs I’ve ever stayed in. Lots of towels. Almost every kitchen appliances you could wish for. And also set up very well for anyone with kids. The location is great for if you’re in the area to see the local sites as well. Overall amazing stay.



Great family friendly place. Nice furnishings with all the amenities you'd need. 5 mins from beach front! Would definitely stay again



We enjoyed our stay it would be Highley recommended by us



We loved our family stay at The Snug, such a cosy home from home feel and surrounded by so many fabulous places to explore! <br/>Honestly perfect for all the family.<br/>Thank you



Excellent place to stay, Really clear instructions and information on the booking page, and everything was as it was advertised. Really nice cosy place and would highly recommend. We will be definitely staying here again whilst visiting family.



The cottage was in a great location for us, it was nice to have a parking space. Easy to find and comfortable.<br/>Lots of toys for the children. A good and varied high street with a Co Op, there were larger supermarkets just 5 mins away in the car.<br/>Because of the rain we visited Holey Molies in Skelton which was an indoor mini golf complex. It was really good I can highly recommend it and very good value too.<br/>A great location to explore North Yorkshire.



We have just returned from a lovely week at the snug. The weather was not kind but we had a lovely time and our kids loved the bedroom, toys and books! Plenty to do in the local area and play cafe across the road came in useful when rainy!



We picked up groceries at the shop across the street and had lovely breakfasts each day of our stay.



Great place. Very well equipped and had everything you needed to feel comfortable. Would stay again



A lovely cottage, ideally set up for families or small groups, very kid friendly and just like the photos. Nice village with convenient shops (Coop 2 mins walk) and really close to the coast, we walked along the Cleveland Way less than 2 miles to Saltburn.<br/>The cottage hadn't been used for a few weeks and was a bit dusty and some spiders had been to work stringing cobwebs up when we arrived, plus the garden chairs had been left out and were filthy, so we had to spend quite a while cleaning them before being able to use them.<br/>Overall a good value cottage in a lovely location, just needs a bit more care before guests arrive.



spacious and comfortable with lots of facilities<br/><br/>heating thermostat seemed to have its own agenda ?



A beautiful place to stay, handy location , great bus services to the coastal areas and the house itself was absolutely gorgeous. The owners had thought of everything and there was even a bottle of Prosecco and biscuits on our arrival. We had a lovely time staying at the Snug and would highly recommend it.



We had a brilliant stay here. Great all round for families. Excellent days out close by.



the layout, the comfort, the views, the look, the location, the amount of kitchen utensils , lots of games to play and smart tv too.<br/><br/>nothing of note….<br/>hmm, maybe a SMALLER table in the garden for a cozier drink/chat…but the table there was fine



Great location for families. Lots of toys, books and games and a play cafe located right across the road.



We had a lovely stay, it was cosy and homely.<br/>Very well equipped and super comfortable beds.<br/>In a great location <br/>Handy for the Cleveland Way and the seaside town of Saltburn and Roseberry Topping only 12 mins away.<br/>We had great walks along Cleveland way, fab fish and chips on the prom <br/>We felt totally refreshed and rested after our night break<br/>Thank you



It was such a pleasant stay. The place is even more lovely than it’s photos and neighbourhood is so quite. Super quick and easy communication. Everything was very clean. Thank you ??



Lovely clean well equipped property



What a fantastic find, we absolutely loved this house full of comfy beds and personal touches. Great location to get into Saltburn a wonderful place to stay!



A cosy, beautifully decorated property with a kitchen which is well equipped for easy catering and a large dining table!



Excellent accommodation! It has everything you could possibly need, it’s in a great location for all local attractions and is very comfortable



Great property! Very clean with lots of toys for our children to play with. A good stash of books for adults. Nicely situated near the centre of the village and handy for the bus service. I have nothing bad to say about it!



The Snug is a beautiful home. It had absolutely everything we needed and more. Tastefully decorated, cosy, comfortable bed and very quiet. Ideally situated for visiting the east coast with plenty of beautiful walks. Close to supermarkets if you want to cook and plenty of restaurants, cafes and the not to be missed fish and chips if you want to eat out. We have had a wonderful break, with the added advantage of amazing weather. Highly recommend The Snug.



Great place to stay , super clean and very well equipped. Good location as only a few miles from Saltburn and easy reach of everywhere else Co-Op across the road had all we needed <br/>Would recommend the Snug , the owners have done a great job and it’s lovely





The Snug is the perfect name for this unique cosy accommodation. In the middle of Skelton, The Snug is a great place for exploring neighbouring seaside towns. We booked this accommodation for a weekend away with another family and it exceeded all of our expectations. We have stayed in lots of Air B N Bs but this was the most child friendly. With high chairs, stair gates, travel cots, a beautifully decorated children’s bedroom equipped with books and toys, child crockery and even bath toys and a slip mat! They have thought of everything to help you relax and enjoy your stay. There is also a child’s soft play and cafe opposite. We were also surprised by the lovely bottle of Prosecco, waters and biscuits on arrival - a lovely touch! The snug is wonderfully decorated to a high standard and the view from the back window was fabulous first thing in the morning and at night. There is a lovely seating area in the back yard to enjoy. In short we would not hesitate to recommend this house especially for those with young children. We went to Saltburn beach for a day which was wonderful and not too littered with tourists- you can hire beach huts for £50 for a day which we would do next time and the sea view cafe looks fabulous but unfortunately we didn’t have time to eat there. We did get a Thai takeaway from Coco and Rum which was delicious and we would recommend.



Had a great time! Thanks to stay for hosting us. Good communication too and the property was great would recommend to families. Thanks



Beautiful cottage, deceivingly large! Had a great stay with my girl friends and would definitely return



A lovely comfortable house. Beautifully designed. <br/>You will definitely need a car to get around as it is a bit out of the way but this is a peaceful retreat at the end of a busy day. <br/>Almost everything you need and more provided.



Just back from a fantastic weekend at the snug. We were a family party celebrating my sons 9th birthday. <br/>Location was fantastic for visiting saltburn and surrounding areas. Taxi was £6.50 to saltburn beach. We would highly recommend a surfing lesson during your stay. All adults and children enjoyed it. Also great pizza shop over the road. <br/>The house has everything you need for a staycation. Hosts were very efficient and on hand if any queries were needed. There were games for adults and children and also PSP should anyone want to use while they stay. Interior was modern and spotlessly clean. <br/>Also lovely welcome pack. Will definitely return.



Great little place to stay with some nice welcoming touches. Great for Saltburn and other areas. Thanks



Lovely place, nice and clean, they look after you well. Would defo recommend



Absolutely fantastic stay in The Snug. Had everything we needed and more. Especially well equipped for our 9 month old baby. Gorgeous view of the sunset over the sea from one of the bedrooms and a nice outdoor dining area that gets the evening sun.



We absolutely loved The Snug. It was a real home from home and a set in a beautiful part of the country. We loved Saltburn and can’t wait to return. So much gorgeous coast to explore including Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay. The Snug itself had everything we needed and we even got lucky with the weather!



A very lovely family friendly accommodation. We travelled with our 1 year old daughter and the extras provided for children were very well thought out such as travel cot, high chair, stair gates, bath toys, non slip bath mat, books and many toys for all ages. We really didn't need to bring anything with us! <br/><br/>The kitchen was well kitted out with all the basic necessities and more such as dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent, coffee, tea, sugar, oil, spices, balsamic vinegar, rice, pasta and flour.<br/><br/>We also arrived to discover a soft play right opposite the accommodation for under 5's which was great for a rainy day! <br/><br/>All in all a very comfortable snug :)



The house is well designed, with a spacious kitchen and cosy rooms downstairs. The garden is set up for bbq but the weather mitigated against it for our stay. The place is well situated for coastal and inland walks. The locality had all the amenities one could want for a short stay.



Had a great stay at The Snug! The house is lovely and clean and in a great location for visiting the nearby coastal areas. <br/>Visited 2 pubs in Skelton village and both were great - Nice beer gardens and friendly service. <br/>Would love to stay again!



Lovely house, clean and tidy. All essentials provided for. We had a great time exploring local walks and the beach at Saltburn. Would recommend.



Really lovely cottage 2 mins drive from Saltburn by the Sea. Close to takeaways and a co-op. So lovely inside ... the owners have thought of everything! We loved it and will be back.



We stayed at The Snug for a short break as the lockdown finally lifted, despite being the first people in for a while the space was absolutely spotless and extremely well equipped. All the family loved the accommodation and the extra touches, we couldn’t fault it! Amazing local area too, plenty to do and beautiful coast close by. We’d love to return!



Great place to stay with family. Well presented and lots of nice touches like toys and games, DVDs, and TV even had Netflix which was great for the kids. Kitchen is well fitted out with pretty much all you could need with a large fridge freezer (pint of milk in when we arrived) and a huge gas hob and double oven. Great little place in easy reach of lots of countryside and the sea.



Staying in this airbnb for a little weekend getaway was amazing! It looks pretty and feels super cozy and has everything you could possibly need. The owners responded quickly, the area was nice and quiet and the price was great.



A beautiful property to stay in. The house was extremely clean with lots of additional little touches to make our stay even better.



We had a fantastic time at The Snug - it's a really well equipped and comfortable place to stay. Our children (2 and 4) were delighted with all the toys and books, and the location is perfect: there is a local deli, bakery and butcher just down the road, and Skelton is on the Cleveland Way so it's perfect for walks to Saltburn or further afield. The parking was a bit tricky - double yellows on both sides of the road immediately outside the property, so on some days we struggled to park close to the house (which is significant for luggage and for young children), but otherwise it was exactly as described, and we would definitely stay here again.



Beautiful snug home, however it was a lot bigger than we imagined. Kids will love this place. Highly recommend x

Loved the house and comfortable - would be 5 stars if fire was real! There was a little bar up the road which was fab!



Excellent. Clean and cosy. <br/>Would highly recommend.



The house was great and actually more spacious than we were expecting. Our children enjoyed staying in the bunks. The house had everything we needed and was only a short drive to the beach.



This is a very comfortable, stylish home situated close to Saltburn by the sea. Good for exploring the coastline and walks on the nearby national park.



A clean, modern accommodition in a good location

Blair C.


very helpful and easy to rent, would definitely dobut again



Just returned from a super three nights at The Snug. We are a family of 5 including a toddler and we have had such a lovely stay! The amount of amenities were incredible and everything has been thought of, from family toys and games, to beach equipment! The house was super clean and comfortable, with all baby safety bits in place. The location was lovely, with a shop on the same street and parking nearby. We were in Saltburn within 10 minutes and if any help was needed there was a helpful brochure and tablet within The Snug which contained useful information about the area. Communication was excellent between myself and the host. We would love to stay again, my two other children miss the bunk beds already! Thank you!



A beautiful house in a great location for exploring the Yorkshire coast. Everything you need and lots of thoughtful extras such as a bottle of Prosecco and biscuits



A lovely place to stay, every detail thought of and everything you could need.
