Nestled in the heart of Saltburn-by-the-Sea

The Zetland Apartment is located in the heart of Saltburn-by-the-Sea so you'll have plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants right on the doorstep. You'll also have breathtaking views of Huntcliff from the apartment.

The Space
The Zetland Apartment has plenty of history within its walls as it originally dates back to 1863 when the railway hotel first opened its doors. Today you can still see remnants of its famous history as the original canopy and railway buffer are still in place.

The apartment boasts a large living room with huge doors which open out onto a balcony. Looking out at the cliffs and the beach, the balcony is the perfect place to start your day! Enjoy your morning coffee as the sun rises in the distance or wind down here after a busy day exploring the coast. There is ample seating in the living room and a TV with Apple TV so it’s the ideal spot to cosy up with your loved ones.

Fully equipped with modern appliances and cookware, the kitchen diner has everything you could need to make the most of your self-catering stay. Beautifully styled, the shaker kitchen is dove grey in colour and there is a large dining table with dining chairs and a built-in bench.

The Zetland Apartment benefits from three bedrooms. Head to the master bedroom and you’ll find a stunning space with vintage style wallpaper, a comfortable king size bed and large double doors which open out onto the balcony. The space also boasts an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom features a double bed. The third bedroom has a trundle bed which includes a single bed and an additional pull out single bed which is always made up.

Spacious and modern, the family bathroom in the apartment includes a bathtub, large walk in shower, WC and basin.

The Zetland Apartment is located in the charming Victorian Spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea on the North Yorkshire coast.

Located in the heart of the town, the property 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.

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
The Zetland Apartment 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 apartment was fantastic. The grandeur of the apartment, the location and view and the modern updates made the stay very enjoyable. Was hard to fault. We have nothing so old and with so much history yet so well maintained in Australia. <br/>The team managing the property were very helpful and were prompt in rectifying any issues. <br/>The online guide was also really well done and not something I've seen before. It helped us being new to the location.<br/><br/>Nothing at all.<br/>Front door needs a handle on the inside as is quite hard to open and close and internet details need to be revised on the guide and the print out in the apartment, but would be easily resolved.



Spacious and beautiful interior<br/><br/>Not enough kitchen ware for 6 people 3 meals a day without dishwashing





lovely apartment with great views from the balcony and a few hundred yards to shops, bars and restaurants.



Spacious, comfortable, contemporary and conveniently located.<br/><br/>Washing machine water valve was not open.



Second time staying here and I loved it just as much. Very happy with how clean and tidy it is. Beautifully decorated and always grateful for the lift when taking a heavy bag upstairs! Within walking distance of beach, cafes and restaurants. I will definitely be back again! Thanks so much!



A spotlessly clean and well-equipped apartment, we had a fantastic weekend. Close to all shops, restaurants and great walks to the sea. Fantastic place, highly recommend!



Gorgeous apartment in a fabulous location overlooking the seafront. Decor was amazing and every little detail had been considered. Really comfy beds we both slept so well. No noise disturbance despite being in such a central location. Highly recommended!<br/><br/>Nothing to say






A fantastic apartment in a great location right in the heart of Saltburn. The service was incredibly responsive and professional and host was on hand for any questions. Would definitely recommend!





Beyond our expectations. It felt larger than the photos, very comfortable, very relaxing, with everything we needed and more. very grand accomodations!<br/><br/>nothing, it was perfect



Excellent accommodation, good views from windows and balcony. Geed access to beach, amenities etc



The apartment was opulent but very comfortable and well equipped.



A beautiful apartment in an interesting historic building. Wonderful spacious rooms with large windows and high ceilings. We loved the architectural details and the location and especially we loved the balcony! The decoration is tasteful and beautifully done and the rooms are elegant, restful and full of natural daylight. We would certainly come again.







An absolutely beautiful stay. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. It’s in a great location. The Apartment is incredibly clean and tidy and we felt very lucky to be able to stay here. <br/>We will definitely be returning it was perfect!



The property was spacious clean and well equipped<br/><br/>great location beautiful balcony



Modern and very homely. Everything we needed was there for us.



A great location for exploring this charming little town, you can step outside and have your choice of cafés, plus it's very near the beach. The apartment was stylishly decorated and well equipped, and even bigger than it seems on the listing. Handy to have private parking and a lift to get the luggage up to the first floor. We had a minor problem on arrival and the listings company was very responsive even though it was after office hours.



A beautiful, clean and spacious accommodation opposite the beach and 3 mins to local amenities that included coffee shops, sainsburys, and good restaurants.<br/><br/>I’d strongly recommend this place staying here for a stressless experience. <br/><br/>Taj



The interior decoration was outstanding and the balcony views over countryside were excellent, sea views only just from a corner of the balcony! . We visited on a very sunny week. Everything was clean and tidy. The building itself was an excellent example of sensitive restoration and preservation of Victorian and Edwardian features. It position in relation to access to Saltburn facilities, walks and beach is perfect - as long as you can cope with the cliff ascent and descent. Parking on site and free parking in the roads around the building.<br/><br/>We had an elderly person with us and were not aware that there are at least 6 steps up to enter the building from any external door. There was an external chair lift but this could not be accessed by holiday makers. There is a small lift once inside the building. Seek clarification if any person needs to solely use a wheelchair to get around. The apartment is dressed by an interior designer in a stunning way but practicalities are overlooked - drawer and wardrobe space, limited work surfaces in the kitchen, no provision of dishcloths, tea towels, mop and bucket etc. The beds are 1 double, one small double and 1 single with a truckle bed below, if using both of these they only just fit in the bedroom. We expected the en- suite room to have a bigger bed.



Lovely very roomy apartment in a very good location, loved the views from the balcony. Full height windows in master bedroom and sitting room gave the place a feeling of opulence. Would stay again. Highly reccomended !



The whole place is exceptional<br/>They have thought of everything <br/>Definitely be back<br/><br/>There was nothing to not lik



size, location and beautifully refurbished.<br/><br/>no hot water for the whole duration of our stay which meant we were unable to enjoy swimming in the sea



This place is stunning! Perfect location opposite the sea front and next to all the restaurants and bars. Such a beautiful apartment with very relaxing vibes by the sea ?

Exceptional apartment close to all amenities, decor amazing reflecting era it was a railway hotel



lovely apartment well appointed, lovely furnishings very comfortable and extremely clean lots of little extras to make your stay comfortable, games books and basic cooking items<br/><br/>the apartment didnt have a sea view - a very pretty view over the Italian gardens and various attractions like the bandstand <br/>the apartment whilst having a lift to all floors has 6 steps to the entrance hall where the lift is located - you need to be able to get up these steps before you can access the lift



This is one of the largest and most awesome apartments I have stayed in. As per most years on my birthday in March I like to get away for a couple of nights. This time brought my “elderly” parents. There is a lift to get up and down to the first floor. Main bedroom has an on suite. All the beds were comfortable and we all had a great nights sleep (which is unusual at least for my dad and me.) The apartment, while being large, is comfortable, warm, and very quiet. The views from the windows, never mind the balcony, are fabulous. While it was a bit windy, we still sat out when the sun shone, and enjoyed the bracing fresh air. Highly recommend this apartment, although maybe I should get next years booking in quick before you all jump on it. :-) Gx



We loved this apartment. It is spacious, beautifully decorated, well equipped and perfectly located in the centre of Saltburn, in the historic Zealand Hotel. This is as good as it gets, and we have no hesitation in recommending it.<br/><br/>There was nothing not to like!



The property definitely has a ‘wow factor’ beautifully furnished and very spacious, well equipped, comfortable beds, with good quality bed linen and towels. Although there is no sea view, it is well located just around the corner from some lovely little shops, bars and restaurants and within easy walking distance of the seafront. Allocated parking space is a bonus.<br/><br/>Lack of thermostats on radiators meant the heating was either all or nothing, which made the bedrooms very hot for sleeping. Lack of wardrobe space, if you were staying for a week or more you would struggle as only one single wardrobe the other two in main bedroom are locked. <br/>Key safe is not marked with ‘M’ as stated in info, so had to try them all before finding the right one.



Great location fantastic home we loved it.



So clean and perfect location. The apartment was amazing.



We had just spent 3 nights in the 10 Zetland but wanted to extend our stay so decided to book this. This apartment was amazing.<br/>Large rooms, lovely kitchen and lounge area, just prefect for relaxing after long walks on the beach and pier. 2 good large bathrooms with lovely showers. <br/><br/>Perfect location minutes from the beach.<br/>Milk teabags coffee provided by the host in addition to other useful kitchen items eg foil, oil and condiments.<br/><br/>Radio, alexa, apple TV and you can log in to Netflix.<br/><br/>This is the first time I've had a holiday in the UK(usually go abroad but haven't due to covid) that I felt like I'd actually had a real holiday and break.<br/><br/>We will be booking this again.<br/><br/>The only negative things to mention are that it could have been cleaner for example the carpets had not been hoovered properly and there was dust build up on the bathroom fans. Secondly the keysafe needs to be labelled! <br/><br/>The balcony is a very good size with furniture, there is a minimal view of the sea.






Location, size of apartment, luxury furnishings and decor, verandah.<br/><br/>Difficulty accessing property due to insufficient/inaccurate information provided. For a luxury apartment with quality crockery and cooking facilities, 6 cups, 6 side plates and 6 cutlery sets was woefully inadequate and we kept having to get them out of the dishwasher and hand wash.



The apartment was amazing! From the decor, facilities and comfort, to the location, literally nothing to dislike. Also added bonus of a designated parking space.<br/><br/>A little clearer instructions for the key safe ! Possibly label the box so guests don't have to try each one to find theirs.
