Description

Set in the village of Flixton, Park Farm and its cottage are situated around a traditional fold yard with farm buildings and fields beyond, where the owner keeps horses. Located on a ‘no through’ road, this semi-detached cottage has been renovated to a very good standard and makes it the perfect place for a peaceful family holiday. You are surrounded by countryside and wonderful walks, such as the Wolds Way which travels past the village across Yorkshire’s best kept secret, the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds. There are miles of rolling countryside and an abundance of wildlife, which were the inspiration for the artist David Hockney’s paintings. The village has a very popular local pub a 2-minute walk from the cottage that serves food daily, as well as a delightful tea room.
The seaside resort of Filey is just 5 miles away with a large, sweeping, sandy beach that stretches for over 3 miles; it is a very traditional seaside resort and much quieter than its neighbours of Scarborough and Bridlington. You are also perfectly placed to visit the North York Moors, the Wolds and the East Coast, all of which can be reached within a short drive. Yorkshire is famous for its market towns and you don’t have to drive far to find them. Malton is the nearest, but you have Pickering, Beverley and Driffield all within a short drive. They all have very busy market days as well as excellent shopping, cafés and restaurants. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs is well worth a visit. This birdwatchers’ paradise has thousands of migrating birds and puffins perched on the chalk cliffs. The historic city of York is less than an hour away with its magnificent minster, riverside bars and cafés, cobbled streets and entertainers. No wonder it’s voted every year as one of the top 10 UK cities to visit. For children there is Flamingo Land theme park, Sea Life aquarium, and Alpamare UK indoor water park all just a short drive away. Beach 4 miles. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub 300 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, where you can have a go on the amazing Water Walkers.

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. Children will enjoy a visit to Funland with its rides and arcades, perhaps followed by a visit to nearby Glen Gardens, which boasts a boating lake and children's play area.

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.
