The Cleveland Way

The Cleveland Way was opened in May 1969 as one of the national trails of Britain (it was the second one established after the Pennine Way). It stretches for approximately 106 miles along the edge of the North York Moors and the North Yorkshire Coast, there are a couple of extra deviations that you could take which will put the distance up to about 110 miles.The trail falls into two roughly equal sections. The inland section leads west from Helmsley, then north, then east around the west of the North York Moors National Park. It then leaves the National Park near Guisborough to meet the coast at Saltburn. It re-enters the National Park just north of Staithes; the coastal section follows the coast from Saltburn to Whitby, then leaves the National Park for the final time at Cloughton Wyke to reach Scarborough and Filey.

With fabulous views, castles, ancient stone crosses and fishing villages tucked into tiny coves it has the lot and Saltburn-by-the-Sea is the perfect landing spot.
