Cattersty Sands Beach, North Yorkshire


Cattersty Sands and Skinningrove beach are split by a pier which was built by the Skinningrove Iron Company in the late 1880s for loading ore onto steamers bound for Middlesborough.

You need to move away from the car park to the other side of the pier where you will find a long stretch of sand with some shingle backed by high grass-covered cliffs.

The Cleveland Way runs through Skinningrove and along the cliff tops.

Facilities at the beach include car parking, a cafe, pub, Post Office and small shop.

Whilst you are in Skinningrove we would suggest you pay a visit to the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum which goes through the history of one of the biggest ironstone mines in Cleveland.

2 Reviews on “Cattersty Sands Beach, North Yorkshire”

Overall rating
  • Clean! Unspoiled and natural.
    This area has improved ten fold since last year due to the beach having been cleaned regularly and the path to the beach.
    The pier has clearly had money spent on it as it is now safe clean and a pleasant place you can sit.

  • A touch of Paradise.
    One of the finest beaches in Yorkshire! The sandy beach is clean washed by the twice daily tide and is an excellent venue for dog lovers and anyone wishing to enjoy this extensive, little used sea-shore under the magestic cliffs of East Cleveland.
