Out and About


Row Brow Farm is an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy this breathtaking coast and countryside.

It is impossible to list all the attractions, but here is an idea of what can be visited within a 30 to 45 minutes drive away:-

Pretty Towns and Villages








Along the A170 inland you can reach pretty villages and towns such as:-


Helmsley a market town with antique shops. Rievaulx Abbey is nearby as is Duncombe Park with its Birds of Prey Centre


Thornton le-Dale a picturesque village with a good selection of coffee shops and close to Dalby Forest


 Pickering a traditional market town with a variety of local shops  and where the North York Moors Railway is based


Hutton le Hole a beautiful small village that is home to the Ryedale Folk Museum –well worth a visit!




Along the A171 coast road heading north you can reach:-


Robin Hoods Bay  a small fishing village and home of the Dinosaur Coast – a great place to go fossil hunting


Staithes another small fishing village, and was once home to a young grocers apprentice

- this apprentice was to become Captain James Cook


Along the A165 coast road heading south you can reach:-


Flamborough and Bempton Cliffs - The coast line along here is very steep and rugged – great for bird watching


And not forgetting……


Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington  follow the A171 north or A165 south

All famous seaside towns with their own charming characters with plenty to keep you entertained! 




   Beaches, Parks and Woodlands






Scarborough beach has 2 bays,  the North Bay which is quieter and has rock pools and the South Bay the more traditional seaside with amusements and harbour.


Filey beach has one big sweeping bay, plenty of room for everyone.  It is a much quieter resort and is ideal for spending a sunny day down on the beach.


Cayton Bay is a fairly large sandy bay and if you fancy a go at surfing, there is a handy Surf Shop that will hire out boards and wetsuits!

Peasholm Park in Scarborough is nice to gently wander around its oriental theme.  The park puts a Naval Warfare show on every couple of days, great fun watching battle ships take on each other on the lake!  Across the road is the Open Air Theatre that hosts some of the largest names in the music industry, why not pop along and see whose coming this week?


Raincliffe Woods is the woodland behind Row Brow Farm.  There are many tracks leading you through this wonderful woodland that will lead you into Forge Valley and the River Derwent.  



And finally………


The North Yorks Moor National Park, you really cannot miss this wild and beautiful landscape.  It has everything to offer from wild treks across the moors, to hidden villages and valleys, and at the right time of year it turns a beautiful purple colour with the heather in bloom – with the North York Moors Steam Train puffing its way through, you will see why it receives thousands of visitors each year.


The moors are just a short drive away, and is home to the Forestry Commissions Dalby Forest.  This wonderful forest has lots of different walks for all capabilities, cycle tracks, adventure playground, GO APE treetop adventure (http://goape.co.uk/days-out/dalby) and when you get tired of walking, hire a Segway to take you along the tracks! 

A thoroughly good day can be had here, why not take a BBQ or sample the café at the Visitor Centre.



Please remember these are only hints and tips to get you started on your discovery of Scarborough and its surrounding areas.  There may be admission prices and opening times and suggest you always check with the venue beforehand.
