  • “Loved our stay at the Shepherds Hut.”

    Bathing in the Hot Tub, looking at the stars on our wedding anniversary was idyllic. The position of the hut allows a beautiful view of the valley. Thank you.

Stepney Hill Farm

This working farm is surrounded by fields of grazing sheep, as well as an award-winning butcher's, a tearoom and a wedding function room, and on a clear night, you can enjoy an amazing stargazing experience. Venture into the centre of the bustling seaside resort of Scarborough to find a host of amenities, pubs, bars and restaurants, if you feel like dining out during your stay. There are two fantastic sandy beaches to choose from, separated by the imposing medieval Scarborough Castle, which rests in the headland and overlooks the sea, while the Japanese-inspired Peasholm Park provides a stunning backdrop for an afternoon stroll and if you're looking for adventure, spend a day at the water park of Alpamare UK. Explore the area via train by boarding the North Bay Heritage Railway or on foot by joining the Cleveland Way, which you can follow in either direction along the coast. Head north into the North York Moors National Park for more excellent walking and cycling trails, as well as the popular seaside resort of Whitby, while south takes you to Filey and the Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast, home to the RSPB Bempton Cliffs Seabird Centre and excellent for wildlife lovers. Stepney Hill Farm is a cosy base to return to after a day exploring the North Yorkshire coast.

Popular since Victorian times, the vibrant seaside town of Scarborough retains many of its original fine buildings, parks and gardens, as well as its historic castle which overlooks the town. North Bay and South Bay provide two superb stretches of beautiful, golden sandy beaches, popular with families and small children. There are a number of child friendly activities and many excellent visitor attractions for grown-ups too, including the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough Spa and Scarborough Open Air Theatre for live music. Scarborough is a great location for outdoor activities, with golf courses, lovely coastal walks along the Cleveland Way, stunning cycle routes such as the old railway to Whitby, beautiful sailing and championship quality surfing. Add to this all the usual seaside entertainment and bustling promenades located close to the beach and Scarborough is the destination with something for everyone. Ideally situated for touring the coastline and the moors, Scarborough is an ideal base for a fun-filled break.
