Inner Smile Retreat (Saltburn/UK)

There is a truly hidden gem which is not know by many yet. A place where sandy beaches are not overcrowded and space is more than just a word. Saltburn-by-the-sea is an old Victorian Seaside Resort and shines its beauty in every season. A place to relax, to recharge, to let go and furthermore to heal yourself from the huzzle and buzzle of the modern life. Once upon a time smugglers have lived here and hid their treasures, today it is a place to start out on a journey that will change your life.

Only 12 miles from Middlesbrough and a stone’s throw from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park is Saltburn-by-the-sea the perfect getaway for people who are looking for some peace and quiet.
