Why Cottage Escapes chose Scarborough

Thirley Cotes Farm, in the area known as Harwood Dale is a beautiful hidden gem. Surrounded by woodland and agriculture it really can be a 'get away from it all'. It is situated in the North York Moors National Park yet close to the amenities of both Scarborough and Whitby. Holidays here really do have the best of both worlds. Please be aware that during week days from 1/10/18 to 30/4/19, we will be renovating part of the Thirley Cotes Farm site. Whilst every effort will be made to avoid disturbance to our guests, we are offering a 25% discount for Half Term weeks in October ( 19/10 – 2/11 ) and February ( 15/2/19 – 1/3/19 ) and also Easter weeks (12-26 April) 2019. We will also offer a 10% discount for weekend breaks, Xmas and New Year weeks, although no works will be conducted at these times.

What makes this cottage unique

The views from the farm are over in-interrupted countryside, which change with the different seasons. With access to woodland walks and bridleways. During the summer harvest or the autumn bramble picking there is a lot to see and do.
