We are pleased that many annual events, shows, festivals and attractions that have been cancelled, postponed or interupted over the past two years are now going ahead again and there is something for everyone, from country shows to goth festivals, folk week and the opportunity to ride on a steam railway! Details of some of these can be found by following the links under our bed & breakfast tab.
Quite apart from organised events and entertainments the area has lots to offer with its coast, countryside and picturesque villages.
Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most attractive villages in England with its cottages, alleyways and beach - together with its fascinating history. You can even go on a guided ghost walk. Of course there are places where you can have a meal, buy refreshments or an ice cream, but there are also excellent local shops selling art and craftwork, clothing, toys, books ... and fossils. You can look for fossils yourself on the beach - Yorkshire's own jurassic coast - explore the rock pools or just enjoy the sea-washed sands.
We are perfectly placed for those who enjoy a countryside location and guests can explore the numerous public footpaths - one of which passes through our fields - that take you through some of the most beautiful countryside in England, to dramatic cliff tops or down to the sea at Robin Hood's Bay. Explore the open moorland, rich in Bronze Age archaeology with numerous tumuli, linear earthworks and even a stone circle.
The moorland above Skerry Hall Farm is managed by the Manor of Fyling Court Leet. A wide variety of birds and other wildlife benefits from this, and there is even a trail initiated by the Hawk & Owl Trust at Jugger Howe a few minutes drive away to help you spot a variety of birds and animals living in the moorland habitat. The whole of Fylingdales Moor is Access Land and you can explore directly from the farm. We provide maps and notes on suggested walks to help get you started or help you plan your own excursions.
During your stay we are always able to suggest a wide range of other things for you to do and enjoy, from whale and seal watching to theatre, museum and art gallery visits.
