A small village with less than a thousand inhabitants, West Ayton is in an ideal location to enjoy some of the best sights that Yorkshire has to offer. It allows you to enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside as well as the facilities of nearby Scarborough which is only 5 miles away.

For over 350 years, Scarborough has been welcoming visitors. It has beautiful, safe beaches, a castle, museums and galleries, parks and an aquarium. There are also theatres, open air concerts, ghost walks and of course Scarborough Fair. The old fashioned resort of Filey is just up the road and offers stunning scenery coupled with all the traditional attractions of a seaside town.

Away from the coast, natural beauty is also within easy reach of West Ayton. The beautiful River Derwent rises near Scarborough and offers walking, cycling, fishing and boat trips. You can access the river in the North Riding Forest Park which is located about 7 miles from West Ayton. Aside from just admiring the unspoilt scenery of the forest you can also try your hand at horse riding, orienteering or cycling.

So whether it's seaside fun or enjoying the great outdoors, West Ayton offers easy access to all of West and North Yorkshire's attractions.
