The Croft - Scalby, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, The North York Moors, England - Sleeps 10+1

The Croft

The Croft is a spacious detached comfortable holiday home that was built in the early 20th century. It nestles in a prime position in the heart of Scalby, an attractive village situated to the north of the seaside resort of Scarborough which is surrounded by the wonderful countryside of the North York Moors. The Croft sleeps ten guests (plus additional one on fold-up bed) in five bedrooms and sits in half an acre of mature gardens which is approached via a private road. It provides spacious comfortable holiday accommodation that is suitable for families or friends who want to enjoy a holiday or time together.

Scalby is located on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and is in a great location, just a few minute's drive from the coastline at Scalby Mills, where the Sea Life Centre and Seal Sanctuary is located. The village has a general store, country inn, cafe serving lunches and teas, hair dressing salon and a newsagent - all just a three minute's walk from The Croft.

The area offers plenty of attractions with something to entertain all ages and energy levels. Not only does the beautiful countryside have wonderful coastal, forest and countryside walks but there are also historic buildings, market towns, pretty Moorland villages and seaside resorts to visit. There are also fantastic cycle routes throughout the area including those in Dalby Forest and the “Moor to Sea” Cycle Route. Dalby is also home to Go Ape where you can experience a high wire forest adventure of zip slides, rope bridges and Tarzan swings, high up in the trees.

Scarborough is a traditional seaside resort with plenty to keep the children (and adults!) amused including Atlantis Watersplash World, the SeaLife Centre, Kinderland Adventure Playground and of course the lovely golden beaches where you can relax on the sands, swim and even have a good old fashioned donkey ride (sure to be a hit with the kids)! Other lovely beaches can be found at Filey, Hunmanby Gap and Bridlington.

Pretty fishing villages including Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay are dotted along the beautiful Heritage Coast, famed for Dinosaur fossils (fossil hunting is particularly good at Ravenscar and Runswick Bay). The coastal cliffs also have much to offer bird watchers where you can spot all types of bird life including cormorants, puffins and gannets.

For those happy to travel a little further afield, the historic City of York is within driving distance, as is Castle Howard, one of the great stately homes of England. The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway is also popular with visitors and provides the perfect way of exploring the beautiful countryside whilst stepping back in time and travelling by steam train.
