About Ruth & Marc Bagley

Myself (Ruth) and Marc have lived in Scarborough all our lives, Marc is a Merchant Navy Sea Captain ...... so you could say you would be staying in a 'Captain's Cottage'

We have two young children that love to visit the cottage as its so close to fun things to do like a walk near the castle and visit the arcades and beach only moments away. Not to forget indulging in some fish and chips follwowed by a 99 ice cream !

Ruth & Marc Bagley purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Ruth & Marc Bagley chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

The main reason we chose this property to set up as a holiday cottage is the location its excellent ! Literally moments away from the Scarborough seafront, beach, harbour and many more attractions. Also perfect for visiting the north bay too.

Newly refurbished to a high standard.

Very family friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is located close to Scarborough Castle on the headland perfect for exploring both of Scarborough's bays- the South Bay with its harbour, beach, fun arcades, cafes and pubs, and the North Bay a quieter more rural area with its beach, lovely walks and famous open air theatre!

A traditional fisherman's cottage in the heart of Scarborough's old town with beamed ceilings, complimented by a modern twist of a brand new fitted sleek modern kitchen, brand new furniture throughout and recently decorated to a high standard.

Luxurious linen, towels and extras!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well equipped and in a fantastic location, Ruth and Marc are fantastic hosts and even left a couple of gifts as we stayed for our anniversary.

The shops are only a 5-10 minute walk away and the seafront on the doorstep, the castle is only 5 mins walk from the cottage too.

Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to escape for a cosy break or seaside holiday, it is truly lovely!!!

We had a couple of rainy days so we relaxed in front of the fire with a DVD and on the nice days we went out and about as there are lots of leaflets in the cottage showing the attractions.

Thank you again Ruth and Marc for a lovely break!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, its stocked with everything you could need. We stayed there over Christmas and there was even a Christmas tree which was such a lovely touch. Ruth and Marc clearly take great pride in this cottage. The location is fantastic and our little boy loved his goody bag :) Would definitely stay here again!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly how it was described. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds, quiet & cosy. The only downside was after full days walking the sofa wasn't that comfortable but anything bigger would take away the quaint cottage feeling & not leave much room to walk through the cottage. On the whole the cottage was brilliant. Ruth & Marc left us tea coffee sugar bottle of wine & yummy do-nuts & chocolates. Overall I will definitely recommend driftwood cottage to friends & family & hopefully we will visit again.

Thank you Ruth & Marc
