What child wouldn’t be excited as you drive through the gates of Row Brow Farm to the little cottage known as The Farmer’s Cottage? With hens, goats, ponies and horses all greeting you on your way up the drive its a great place for families who enjoy the outdoor life. As you pull into the yard the horses pop their heads over the stable doors to see who the next guests are. The cottage is over 300 years old and still retains some of its original features with beautiful wooden floors. Every single room in the house has spectacular views across the Yorkshire countryside and in the distance the sea at Scarborough. The cottage enjoys its own area of garden and patio with a south facing conservatory. A great place to relax after a day visiting some of the attractions that the east coast has to offer. Behind the cottage you have direct access into ancient woodland with miles of forest walks. For those of you with a rod licence there’s a lake at the bottom of the drive where day passes are available (at cost) for coarse fishing.

A great base to visit the east coast and the North Yorkshire Moors, Scarborough beach is just a few minutes drive away and it’s one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. From traditional donkey rides, sand castles and boat trips, it’s good old-fashioned fun for all the family.

Visit the famous RSPB Nature Reserve at Bempton Cliffs, with unrivalled sightings of puffins, guillemots and kittiwakes or enjoy the panoramic sea views from Flamborough Head and an interesting tour of the lighthouse. The traditional resort of Bridlington is just a 30 minute drive and holds irresistible appeal for all ages, with its miles of sandy beaches and historic harbour. Easily accessible are the North Yorkshire Moors, where the steam train transports visitors through stunning scenery from Pickering to Whitby. A perfect spot to see what Yorkshire has to offer.

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.
