News and Events, Places to Visit, Things to Do

Whitby is officially the most popular UK holiday destination for 2022 followed closely by Scarborough, according to an article in the Daily Mirror. Nearby Filey also makes it in to the top 10.ย ย  So that makes 3 of the top 10 holiday destinations in the UK all within 40 minutes of us at Cliff House Holiday Cottages โ€“ how good is that? ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Whitby is just 40 minutes away by car, or let the train take the strain and take the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from nearby Pickering for a classic day trip to the coast for fish and chips, a walk up to the Abbey and a return trip on the train.
  • Scarborough is just 25 minutes away from us and offers big beaches, amusement arcades, an old town and castle to explore as well as a Sea Life Centre.
  • Filey is an easy 25 minutes away. In 1806 The Gentlemanโ€™s Magazine described Filey as an escape from the boisterous crowds of Scarborough and a place of simple pleasures.ย  It even has its own kite flying festival and is great for long beach walks (when the tide is out ๐Ÿ˜‰).
