Chapel Cottage is a perfect rural base for couples and family holidays, as well as those wanting an active holiday with miles and miles of walking and cycle routes from the doorstep. The cottage has a comfortable home from home feel, and this 15th-century former cowshed has been refurbished to a good standard. It has a master bedroom with original beams and a twin bedroom on the first floor, with the living room, kitchen and modern bathroom on the ground floor.
Dalby Forest is situated on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park and offers over 8,000 acres of woodland to explore and enjoy. There are play areas for children, barbecue areas and plenty of way marked cycling and walking trails, from family friendly to the UCI World Cup course for the brave. There is even a cycling hire shop if you don’t want to make use of the cottages own bike store. Nearby you will also find one end of the famous Lyke Wake Walk, not for the faint hearted, as the full route across the North York Moors National Park can take in excess of 24 hours!
There is so much more to see and do in the area with many National Park villages and traditional pubs to visit, to rushing through the National Park on a steam train, taking in the sights and sounds. The dramatic Yorkshire coast is a short drive away, with wonderful Whitby with its ancient cobbled streets filled with amazing shops and tea rooms. The Abbey towers down from East Cliff, with its links to Bram Stokers ’Dracula’, and there is an up and coming foody scene. Plenty of award winning fish and chip shops are still very popular, but there’s plenty of bistro gastro pubs and international cuisine on offer. And there is always something happening in the town from Goth Weekenders to a Regatta. Neighbouring Scarborough has two sweeping sandy bays and a more traditional seaside resort feel, as well as an open air theatre with international bands, a water park and a sea life centre. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

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.
