Cayton Cottage is a delightful little cottage situated in the centre of the village of Cayton, just 4 miles from Scarborough and 4½ miles from Filey. This end-terrace cottage has its own enclosed courtyard area, making it perfect for the children or the dogs. The owner has provided a wonderful decking area that leads out from the living room, a great place to eat meals in the sunshine. The cottage also benefits from having a car parking space.

Cayton has a very strong village community and has all the amenities you could need. There are a couple of shops, a post office and an award-winning restaurant/pub just opposite the cottage. Cayton Bay is the nearest beach just 1½ miles away and is a very popular bay with surfers, plus for those of you with dogs as it is an all year round dog-friendly beach.

The seaside resorts of Filey and Scarborough are just a 10-minute drive. Filey is a very traditional resort and has won many awards for having one of the best beaches in the UK. Stretching for over 5 miles along the coast, this wide sandy beach is nice and flat. Scarborough is the larger of the two resorts and has something for all age groups, from an open-air theatre to a waterpark with slides and wave pools.

The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs is just a short car drive, and the amazing display of migrating seabirds perched on the chalk cliffs is well worth a visit. You will see puffins, guillemots and kittiwakes, as well as the many bird watchers that travel from overseas to see this magnificent display. Cayton Cottage is perfectly situated to visit the North York Moors National Park, the Yorkshire Wolds and the east coast. Beach 1½ miles. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

About the local area

Scarborough is situated at the southern end of the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and, together with Filey, offers beautiful beaches, coastal walks and a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

Scarborough is a town of two halves, with South Bay full of amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and donkey rides, whilst the more genteel North Bay is home to several parks and grand Victorian buildings. The whole family will want to take a trip on the miniature North Bay Railway, which will take you to Sea Life Centre and to the Historic Water Chute and Boating Lake.

Filey is a small traditional seaside town, home to an award-winning museum and a nature reserve that is a haven for wild birds. The town is situated at the eastern end of The Cleveland Way, a long- distance footpath that skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer. Kids will love visiting the Alpamare waterpark for all kinds of aquatic fun, with slides, waves and much more to enjoy. 

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white-knuckle rides to children's entertainment. For something really out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pesky Husky, where you can take part in a kennel tour followed by walk or even a trek with these charismatic dogs.
