Local attractions

There are many places and attractions worth visiting along the North Yorkshire coast and we are ideally situated to pack as much into your holiday as you want to.

We are a ten minute drive from Whitby, famous for the abbey situated at the top of the 199 steps, picturesque harbour, beaches and cobbled streets in the old part of the town.  Whitby is known for its connection with Captain James Cook and you can follow his life trail and visit the museums dedicated to Yorkshire's famous son.

Scarborough is a 30 minute drive away and has beaches in both the north and south bays.  Take in the spectacular views along the coast from the 12th century castle.  Visit the Stephen Joseph Theatre which is home to the famous playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn.  Other attractions include the miniature railway, the open-air theatre, peasholm park, art gallery and museum.

The stunning coastal scenery and pretty villages in the area are worth stopping to see as you drive around.
