Find cottages in Scarborough

Scarborough combines a traditional seaside holiday with plenty of great day-out opportunities amongst beautiful coast, moors and forests.

If you’re looking for clean, safe sandy beaches, lots of seaside family-friendly fun and easy access to both coast and countryside, Scarborough is for you.

Scarborough has welcomed visitors for more than 360 years and is as popular as ever. The view from Scarborough Castle is well worth the climb, but if you prefer to explore without the exertion hop aboard the miniature North Bay Railway, it was built in 1931 and runs between Peasholm Park and Scalby Mills stations.

Divided by the Castle Headland, Scarborough''s North and South Bays have something for everyone. The busier South Bay has a sheltered sandy beach ideal for family bathing and sand castles, while the quieter North Bay has Blue-Flag status. Cayton Bay Beach lies just outside Scarborough and provides a relaxing environment in which to enjoy the coast.

The town has a number of fine parks and gardens including South Cliff Gardens and Peasholm Park; this extensive park has an impressive Japanese-style pagoda and a boating lake which, in the summer months, puts on miniature naval battles with small replica ships; great fun for the children.

If you want to explore the region the North York Moors National Park is a short distance inland as is Dalby Forest; both ideal for great days out.

A cottage break here allows you to enjoy a truly traditional seaside holiday in Britain’s ''first'' seaside resort. For accommodation see our selection of Scarborough holiday cottages.

    Ref: UK2015
    Forming part of a Grade ll listed Georgian house, this self-contained lower ground floor apartment is steeped in history. Just two steps down from street level, its private front door would once have been the servants’ entrance to the house above. Built around 1730 the house stands on the foundations of a medieval stone cottage that was originally on the site. Later on, this lower floor served for many years as the local dairy with milk being dispensed from churns and delivered around the old town by horse and cart.


    Bright, light and characterful, this lovely apartment balances style and comfort in equal measure. With its underfloor heating and multi-fuel burner, it’s a superb place to come back to after that long walk along the cliff tops. The Cleveland Way passes through Scarborough to its final destination in Filey, so there are plenty of good walks right from your doorstep.


    The town centre is just along the road with some excellent restaurants and bars. If you fancy the theatre there’s the Stephen Joseph Theatre, home to most of Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s world premieres. Just a two minute walk and you can be sat on the beach. Scarborough is famous for its two bays, the North and South Bay. They are both very different in that the South Bay is the livelier of the two, with donkeys, amusements and traditional seaside facilities, whereas the North Bay is a quiet bay overlooked by Scarborough Castle.


    The resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are just a short drive away, with their award winning beaches. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is well worth a visit. You’ll see thousands of puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat as well as the seals that lounge on the rocks. In the area there are plenty of stately homes to visit such as Castle Howard, home to the filming of Brideshead Revisited, Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall. The medieval city of York can be reached in less than an hour by train or by car. With plenty to see and do there, it makes for a great day out. Visit some of the local market towns such as Pickering, Beverley and Driffield, all selling local produce and gifts.


    The Old Dairy is a perfect base to visit the North York Moors, the coast and the Wolds.
