The site holds lots of activities for the children from face painting to table tennis, dedicated play park area, football pitch and even Body Zorbs. From the cottage it’s a leisurely 10 minute walk down to the beach and what a beach! Miles of golden sand and so much space for the children to play on. When the tide is out you can walk all the way to Filey or the opposite way towards Reighton Gap. Filey is a very traditional Victorian seaside town with shops, bars and restaurants as well as the local train station. The cottage is a great base to visit the cities of Hull and York as well as the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Wolds.

The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs is a 15-minute drive away, where you will see puffins perched on the chalk cliffs.

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.
