The Square Rig is a delightful luxury self catering holiday cottage situated in Runswick Bay, nestling between Staithes and Whitby.


  We have put in place all government regulations to keep everyone safe and to minimise the risk.  We have a thorough cleaning and sanitising protocol using all the approved cleaning and sanitising products.  As the cleaning will take longer now, all bookings will start at 4.00 p.m. on the day of arrival.



We are now taking bookings for 2022.

Square Rig is a delightful cottage, spread over three floors, with terrific views over the bay. 


This historic cottage was completely rebuilt in 1995/96 to an almost exact replica of the original, retaining the charm of the old cottage, but with all the benefits of modern creature comforts.





Square Rig is one of the larger detached cottages in Runswick Bay, and with the added rarity of an enclosed lawn and garden - a wonderful space to indulge in dinning alfresco and chilling!  The cottage is close to the beach, car park, pub and cafe.
