Owned by Her Majesty the Queen, in Right of Her Duchy of Lancaster, Scalby Lodge is a collection of fifteen beautiful cottages situated in an idyllic clifftop setting near the elegant seaside town of Scarborough.
Springthorpe Cottage is a holidaymaker’s delight. Complete with hanging baskets, olde worlde street lamps and a beautiful stone façade, you’ll fall in love with this property before you even have your foot in the door.The cottage is part of the Scalby Lodge Farm, a prestigious holiday complex that’s owned by Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Her Duchy of Lancaster. Hugged from all sides by lush green pastures and wildflower meadows, the stage is set for a truly memorable holiday by the sea.Boasting cosiness and warmth, Springthorpe Cottage is designed for tight-knit families and reconnecting with your dearly beloved. Once you’ve crossed the threshold, you’re met with a luscious social space furnished with elegant décor that’s set around a wood burner. The high vaulted ceiling and chunky wooden beams create a roomy impression, which is highlighted by ample natural light that floods in through Velux windows. But it’s the simple beauty that makes this property so special: a bright and homely cottage of natural colours, free from bric-a-brac and tired old furniture. It’s this innate character makes Springthorpe Cottage something to admire.The complex perches behind the cliffs near to Scarborough, drinking in the compelling seascape views. The on-site games room gives children a place to hang out, and avid birdwatchers are catered for with a hide overlooking the pond. It’s customary on British holidays to explore the area’s sights and sounds, braving the elements and meeting the friendly locals, much to the interest of the folks back home. But if you’d rather spend the entirety of your trip with your feet beside the crackling fire and a good book in hand, don’t worry – we won’t tell.If you do fancy stretching your legs, wander down into the coastal town, which is home to two beaches, the largest open-air theatre in Europe and an imposing castle, or head northward along the clifftops on the Cleveland Way. Situated between the Heritage Coast and the North York Moors National Park, there’s stunning natural landscapes in all directions, giving rise to a wealth of attractions and activities to try.
