Columbus Ravine I is situated in a prime position in Scarborough just a short walk from the north bay. The house has been lovingly restored by the present owners, all the bedrooms are en-suite with TV’s and the icing on the cake is the hot tub in the courtyard! The town and shops are within walking distance with a great indoor shopping centre and lots of boutiques, and for those who prefer the nightlife there are plenty of bars, restaurants, clubs and a casino. Just around the corner is the Scarborough cricket ground where the famous Scarborough Festival is held each year, an end of season competition featuring Yorkshire County Cricket Club. For those who love a faster sport, there’s Oliver’s Mount racing track with high powered road race bikes. As you walk to the beach you pass one of the Peasholm Park entrances. Take a detour and walk around the park with its stunning gardens, lakes and waterfalls. There’s boats and pedalos and, in summer, a brass band to entertain you. The park is famous for the Naval Warfare Battle where model ships re-enact a battle on the lake. It’s great entertainment for the kids and has been for the last 80 years.
One of the best things about Scarborough is that it has two bays, quite different from each other. The south bay is a traditional seaside resort with donkeys, amusements and shops whereas the north bay is much quieter and more relaxed. Half way between the two bays the castle stands proud on the cliffs above. You can walk the full length of Marine Drive from north to south bay and it’s nice and flat making it easy for that evening stroll. If you prefer, there’s the open top buses that run along the seafront. At the far end of north bay is the Sealife Centre and the open air theatre, the largest outdoor theatre in Europe where international acts play during the summer.
Further down the coast is Filey, Flamborough and Bridlington. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is worth a visit where you can see puffins in their natural habitat. North of Scarborough is the beautiful North York Moors, and Whitby, a bustling fishing town famous for Whitby Jet Jewellery and the Goth weekends. You are only an hour away from York, a beautiful medieval city where you can visit the Railway Museum, take a leisure cruise on the river or walk the city walls which surround it.Please note: Columbus Ravine I can be booked together with Columbus Ravine II (CC244084) to accommodate up to 24 guests.
