East Farm Country Cottages have a hill side location down a private country lane. The cottage garden has panoramic views of what is acknowledged as Scarborough's prettiest area. They are ideally situated as a base from which to explore the North York Moors National Park, the beauty of the National Heritage Coastline and the many local footpaths and bridleways.
Scalby & Surrounding Area
The village of Scalby is a short distance from the cottages and offers a general store, newsagents, cafe, and two public houses. Its village church, St. Lawrence's, dates from 1180 and is well worth a visit - the lych gate and stained glass being particularly fine. There are many walks around the village and the banks of the Sea Cut (a Victorian man-made flood channel following the original course of the River Derwent) provide an interesting and level walk. Scarborough and the coast are just a five minute drive away.
Derwent Valley And Hackness
The nearby (2 miles) Derwent Valley and the Hamlet of Hackness offers more beautiful scenery that leads to the North Riding Forest Park. Also in easy traveling distance is the popular moorland village of Goathland - made famous as the village of "Aidensfield" in the "Heartbeat" television programme.

Approaching Scarborough from the south or west, follow the signs for Whitby (A171). The A171 skirts the western side of Scarborough (Scalby Road) passing Scarborough Hospital. After about a mile there are traffic lights, opposite Proudfoot's supermarket, shortly followed by the Rosette public house. Turn left along Hackness Road just before the Rosette.
From the north, on the A171, after crossing the river, turn right at the Rosette public house.
After the turn at the Rosette, follow this road over a narrow stone bridge and continue on for approx. 1/2 a mile through the village and along Hay Lane. Just after the last house there is a right hand bend before a steep hill (watch for the National Park sign), the cottages are down the private road that branches off to the left from this bend. this is a narrow road and also a bridleway so please drive slowly. Pass East Farm (first building on the right) and carry straight on to the cottages which are situated on the right just past East Farm.
