Our idyllic surroundings

Butler's Cottage is situated within private grounds in the estate of Cober Hill. It is located in the village of Cloughton, 6 miles north of Scarborough and 15 miles south of Whitby on the A171 Scarborough to Whitby road.

There are excellent road links from York and Leeds using the A64, to the A1/M1 to the M62 via Driffield and to Teesside and the North East using the A171. Frequent rail services link Scarborough to York and Hull and there is a half hourly bus service between Whitby, Scarborough and Cloughton.

For those travelling by rail, Station Taxis, situated in the station forecourt have large taxis suitable for the disabled, and can be pre-booked to meet your train. Generally the journey to Cober Hill would be 15-20 minutes and fare in the region of £10.00. Station Taxis can be contacted on 01723 366366.

Nestled on the edge of the heather-clad North York Moors National Park and the dramatic Yorkshire Heritage Coast, you are simply spoilt for choice of walks. In particular, the popular Cleveland Way National Trail is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and is just a short walk down from the road from Butler's Cottage. The walk can be picked up at various points along its 109-mile journey from Filey to Helmsley (or vice versa!).

If short walks are more suited to you then there are some excellent choices, including a popular circular walk incorporating the Cinder Track (old Scarborough to Whitby railway) and Cleveland Way, taking in the beautiful little waterfall that cascades on to the fossil-rich beach at Hayburn Wyke. Or maybe just take a meander through the 11 acres of grounds of Cober Hill, up to the top meadow with some of the most breath-taking sea views you could wish for.

Also within the grounds of Cober Hill, there is a croquet lawn, tennis courts, children's play area and tangle trail, putting green, secret garden and much more. Guests of Butler's Cottage can use these facilities free of charge when pre-booked at Reception.
