Self catering holiday cottages in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England

Scarborough with its two stretches of sandy beach is one of Yorkshire’s top seaside towns.  With a cheerful air, the emphasis in this coastal town is on fun.  By the seafront at South Bay Beach there are excellent facilities with a number of shops, casinos, amusement arcades, fish & chip shops and cafes.  Scarborough could be an excellent choice for family self-catering breaks and equally for cottage getaways with friends.

About Self-Catering Holidays in Scarborough


When it comes to spending time on the beach, building sand castles or paddling, the two main offerings in Scarborough are South Bay Beach or North Bay Beach.  South Bay Beach is the busiest, easily accessible from Foreshore Road and conveniently located with amenities nearby.  North Bay Beach is Scarborough’s blue flag award winning beach and has excellent facilities with the Beach Centre and showers located close by.  


Scarborough’s Top Attractions include:

  • 2 stretches of sandy beach at South Bay Beach and North Bay Beach
  • The Castle Headland – visit Scarborough Castle for fine views fit for a King or Queen, of the harbour and South Bay down below.
  • Pleasure Steamers – take an enjoyable cruise on historical steamer ships.
For great views in Scarborough, head for the heights of Olivers Mount, located just outside of the town, here you can marvel at great views of the town down below.  For many children a trip to Scarborough just wouldn’t be complete without a donkey ride on one of the sandy beaches.  For more family fun, a trip on the North Bay Railway is said to be one of Scarborough’s best attractions.  This pleasure train takes passengers on a scenic journey along almost a mile of track from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills, taking in wonderful views of the North Bay en route.  What is extra special is that this train is accessible for dogs, wheelchairs and pushchairs!

We trust that you’ve found our hints and tips on things to see and do in Scarborough on a self-catering holiday helpful.  As you would expect Scarborough has its own dedicated tourist information office.  We strongly recommend that you visit for free leaflets, information and a bit of friendly advice on the local area.

Staying in Scarborough offers plenty to see and do.  If you want to enjoy a mix of scenery on your cottage holiday though there are lots of options.  It is a little known fact that the seaside town of Scarborough is just a few miles from the glorious greenery of the North York Moors National Park so keen walkers can head here for guided footpaths and more.  The attractive seaside town of Whitby is also just a further 20 miles up the coast.  For a taste of city life, the historical city of York is only 41 miles away so there is certainly plenty of choice when it comes to how to spend your time in this part of Yorkshire.

We hope that you find a good quality coastal cottage in Scarborough and that you have the very best of times.

Book a Scarborough cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Yorkshire on holiday.
