Property Details

The Space
Upon entering the property, you’ll be welcomed by the bright and airy feel of the apartment.

Inside you’ll find two spacious bedrooms with double beds and a stylish living area. Head further along the hallway and down the steps to discover the fully equipped, modern kitchen. The bathroom is located at the back of the property and features a gorgeous free-standing bath.

The Ruby Retreat 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 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 Ruby Retreat 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.

location was great- nice and clean and kitchen was lovely. nice and spacious.
the bath screen enabled water to pour onto the floor which worried us as in a flat. The settees were really uncomfortable with one of the arms was broken. the main issue was the couple downstairs who left their big dog alone on Friday night which howled and barked non stop until about 10. it was that bad I have recordings on it. As a result we wouldn’t stay there again unfortunately.



Nice comfortable place great amenities near buy . Parking great

Enjoyed my birthday good location.clean apartment nice and warm .it would have been nice to have had some christmas decorations up the key safe was very stiff on arrival .the entrance hall was very poor missing light bulbs.very dark going in and out .scafolding been put up next door lots of banging about . First impressions terrible a spot of decoration would improve no end .the ruby retreat youcould not fault



Comfortable flat in a great location



Entrance to property is awful but the flat is lovely
Very uncomfortable sofas



Beds were really comfortable, property was clean everything was there to hand.
The entrance didn’t do the property any justice, first impression wasn’t good. could do with a spruce up, paint, flooring and walls damaged.



Clean and comfortable flat with everything you need for a stay away from home and no problem with on street parking. Great location within easy walk to the beach and restaurants and cafes. Unfortunately, we could hear music from a neighbouring flat throughout our stay.



Lovely place! Would stay again. Close to shops and restaurants and bars. Wanted to stay longer. Close to beach and pier which was lovely. Short drive to Staithes.






The location was excellent sea views and near the town and station. and the beds were comfortable.
Uncomfortable sofas, WiFi very weak struggle to eat at table as cramped.Could of done with some more furniture such as drawers in the bedroom. Was expensive as not high season and was difficult to stay in the lounge I'm the evening as sofas very small and hard.



Spacious and comfortable



Location- very good
Very well presented

Steep stairs and loose stair carpet, the shower was difficult to operate and heating came on, even though it was hot because it had been left on the wrong setting (did say ‘leave on manual’ clearly on the unit)



The location of the property was perfect, just a short stroll to the beach. The property did have parking directly outside of the property, this may have been luck but if you couldn’t get directly outside there was plenty of space. The property was clean and had everything you needed.

The outside of the property looked abit worn.






Very good



Great stay in Saltburn. It was quiet on the street and we didn’t really hear much but there is a garden courtyard below so it depends on if they are using that outdoor space if the noise travels. Very clean and a lovely flat in a perfect location, two minutes walk to the seafront and two minute walk into town. Great no fuss stay!






Lovely apartment, really well finished and great location. The apartment was laid out well so it felt really spacious.
Free parking on the road outside the apartment, never any issue finding a space. 50 metres (ish) from the sea front! Would highly recommend!!



Amazing apartment a stones throw from the beach. You can see the see as soon as you step out of the front door. Felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Great communication from the company managing it and check in was easy. Will be back soon



Great location, very clean and great facilities



Great location, clean and smart flat.



Quick response to issues from agent. Very well equipped flat. Very close to amenities.
Initial problem with lock to flat but resolved promptly by agent.
Unkempt appearance of entrance to building in which the flat was located.



Clean, comfortable and close to beach!



Excellent location for the beach and the Milton street cafes/bars. Good street parking and central to the shops too.
The flat is gorgeous, well equipped and designed.
Perfect for two couples as both rooms are comfortable and roomy.
A very light and contemporary space that was a pleasure to stay at.



Had four excellent days in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Beautiful area and the apartment is ideally situated near the sea, sea view from the lounge window. Also very close to all the shops and restaurants. Some excellent restaurants at the top of the street.
Apartment, once inside, was wonderfully clean and had all facilities that one needs to make it a perfect stay. The exterior of the building needs some tlc but the inside of the apartment is immaculate.



spacious apartment. Recent decor and modern furnishings- lovely. very well equipped albeit that our stay was too short to use the items supplied. Good location. Clean and fresh (with the exception below)
communal entrance and front door. Blinds look nice but let in too much light in the morning. little dusty (blinds and light shades) but overall very clean.



Modern and kitchen well stocked. Close to sea
Toilet door could not close...hinges not fixed on. No desk/dressing table. When arrived nearly didn't go in. Front door broken outside run down with litter. Shower panel on bath mouldy. Not enough glass tumblers for 4 people. No hooks in bathroom or towel rails. Paint and DIY items left outside flat door. Hallway and stairs run down



Absolutely lovely apartment, close to the sea, spotlessly clean and close to all amenities!



Spacious and clean



The apartment. Clean, fresh, modern. Good location.
The Superhog additional beurocracy that was added on after booking: dictatorial bordering on threatening.



Location was great
Curtains in the bedroom (as well as blinds) would have made bed times for a toddler much easier, as the rooms are bright.
Bathroom door also needs planing to close properly.



Super clean warm and comfortable
Radio in the kitchen



We stayed for a long weekend at the Ruby Retreat and we’re not disappointed! A really central location in Saltburn, a minutes walk to the beach and sea front.
It was well equipped and spotlessly clean with excellent communication from the hosts. The beds were really comfy and even though it’s a 2nd floor apartment, it’s was really quiet.
We even had the sunshine to explore all that this beautiful coastline has to offer! We’d love to come back again soon!






Location next to beach, spacious clean modern apartment, pubs and shops nearby.
The only thing letting down the apartment was the entryway and front door. Both were in need of a clean and lick of paint but don’t let this put you off.



Location, facilities, cleanliness
Would have liked curtains in the bedrooms, not just blinds



Fabulous place only a few mins away from the beach and town centre. The location is perfect. Fabulous walks, little coffee shops and independent shops makes it a perfect place for a getaway



Lovely clean apartment great location



The facilities were great, clean on arrival, easy access as per instructions received by Stay North Yorkshire. Super location with the beach just yards away and local amenities all within a ten minute walk or so
Furniture was small (we were 2 adults two children) and struggled to sit comfortably in the living room all together due to the size of the seating furniture...there was plenty space for bigger furniture which would have bumped up the comfort rating.



The apartment is immaculately clean and has everything you need for that home from home environment. It was a cold rainy day when we arrived and the heating had been put on which was a nice welcome. There was fresh milk left in the fridge with plenty of tea and coffee available with lovely cups for a good cuppa.
The view from the living room you can see the sea and its close to local amenities.
The first impressions are a let down unfortunately, which is a shame because once inside the apartment has been done to a high standard.
The person living downstairs has a noisy dog which kept us up during the night.



Great location. Good on street parking. Loads of storage for coats etc. Nice simple decor. And loads of space.
Nice to have tea coffee and milk when you arrive.
Super handy for sainsburys at end of road too.
Needs a few more kitchen items like sissors & baking trays. Probably wouldn't matter if you normally eat out but we were in most evenings.
Bathroom needs towel rail or hooks.
Shower screen doesn't quite meet the bath so floor gets a bit wet









Had a enjoyable time. The place was top notch. Clean and well made. Every pic online was what welcomed us. That I would stay again. The only this was the place is not sound proof I could hear other people from other apartments walking and talking but other than that our stay was extraordinary



Amazing location. Beautiful bathroom & well equipped kitchen.
Parking, a very busy street. Noise from flat above. Grotty entrance hall & stairway. Prefer a king size bed.



The location was great the entrance area could be improved.
Great communication from the host .
Noisy dogs on ground floor

Just back from 3 nights stay atRuby Retreat. Had a fab time, the apartment has everything you need and more. All new and fresh. In a very convenient place to beach and town



Nice place a stones throw away from the beach.



Great host, fast reply, great location. Would definitely return. Downside- could do with some black out curtains, and also you can hear everything upstairs



This was a great place to stay, close to the beach and shops in Saltburn, only half an hour to Whitby and close to other east coast destinations. It is a really beautiful flat which is well maintained and has everything you need. However i feel it is worth mentioning a couple of things... the shower needs fixing as water leaks all over the floor and whilst we were there we had problems with the lock on the door, however this was quickly resolved. I have one major complaint, if you have children I don't feel this is the best place to stay. The neighbors are very noisy and we were consistently woken up through the night, my daughter was woken up by the upstairs neighbors having some adult time. Not the best experience for us !!



The apartment was great, bright, airy, clean, modern, well equipped and in a great location, just a few minutes from the beach and the shops and supermarket. There was a good attention to detail and nice little touches of milk in the fridge, tea & coffee. Although your have the entire apartment be mindful that you do have neighbours above and below. We struggled a bit with the WiFi set up and connection as it wasn’t straightforward password access. The hosts were always contactable and replied quickly to any messages.



The place is bigger than the pics. Very close to the beach. And the place is sparkling clean. All amenities looked new. The one downside is prob that you can hear everything upstairs, I mean everything. If you are a light sleeper, might need to consider that.



Saltburn was an unexpected surprise, it was a fabulous little town that offered everything we needed.

Saltburn is the quiet gem to Whitby that is located within easy reach of the busier Sandend and Whitby.

The property is greatly situated for the beach, town, rail station and regular bus routes to Middlesbrough and Whitby.

The property was spotless, well appointed and ideal for two couples and a small pooch.

Would highly recommend.

This is a lovely home from home at the seaside. Perfect location, clean, cosy and welcoming. Would highly recommend!



Spotless and in a perfect location, recently renovated, think we’ve found our new home away from home :)



The bathroom door didn’t close - looks like it needs rehanging (I’m married to a carpenter!) plus hooks for hanging clothes on in bathroom would be useful

Great appartment

We had a great stay, location is perfect and the property is lovely.



The design and decor. Space and location. Really clean



Excellent location very close to the beach. The town is also close by with lovely bars and shops. The walk along the sea front is beautiful. The apartments as spacious, very clean and comfortable. It has amazing facilities and is also really quiet and relaxing.



We were back to see the family for Christmas; so needed a little bolt holt to return to sleep in. Ruby retreat had comfy beds and was newly decorated to a high standard. Really pleasurable stay and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again



A true gem! Stylish, spacious + spotless apartment in a great location for all local amenities/attractions with ample parking nearby. We especially loved: the super comfy beds, smart TV and Nespresso machine. Great job + thank you Stay!



Very stylish, clean and spacious. Excellent location, super close to beach and main street.



Well equipped apartment in a lovely location. Beds were super comfy!



Nice newly furnished



Lovely style & great facilities



Great location, newly done up. Great facilities



Has to be one of the best managed apartments I've stayed at. Thoughtful design and meticulously clean. Great communications from the host. Highly recommended.



We felt extremly lucky to be the first guests to stay in at The Ruby Retreat. The apartment was brand new so we were using everything for the first time.
We fell in love with the place and Saltburn. We liked it so much we booked an extra night.
Unbelievable location. 5 mins walk to the sea. You can see the sea from the living room.
The apartment itself is well fitted with a lovely kitchen and decor. Plently of plates, cups and pans for all your cooking needs. The living room is very cosy on a wet or cold day.
The staff were very helpful. We had a small issue when we arrived and it was fixed by staff within 10 mins.
Communication was great throughout.
Highly recommended and we would stay again. Perfect for couples.
