My partner and myself caught the 8.50 train from Whitby arriving at Middlesbrough at 10.17, we nipped in the Travellers’ Rest Café for a takeaway coffee and waited for the Saltburn train. It left Middlesbrough at 10.57 arriving in Saltburn at 11.24.

The station is a lovely building bringing back childhood memories of seaside holidays. We had a steady walk to check in to the Diamond Guest House on Saltburn’s sea front (about 200yds from the sea). After checking in we wandered on the old pier and had a cup of tea on the sea front. We returned to the guest house and had a rest, then showered and changed and set out to find some where to eat, we found Alessi’s a lovely Italian. After a lovely pasta and bottle of wine we headed back to our accommodation. Next day we had morning stroll on the beach before our full English breakfast, we checked out and made our way into town where we had a look round the shops before making our way to the station. We caught the 13.31 back to Middlesbrough arriving at 13.54,  just time to get a quick coffee then catch the 14.16 back home to Whitby. We had a lovely time very stress free and didn’t have to get the car out of the garage.
