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 followed 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, famous open air theatre and newly opened Alpamare Waterpark!

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!

Amazing location, beautifully decorated and the ultimate finishing touches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Driftwood cottage for 3 nights with our toddler and had an absolutely fantastic time. The cottage is so cosy and well decorated, it really is a home from home feeling you get when you walk through the door. It's so well located for a walk out on to Scarborough sea front. We were concerned about parking but needn't have been as parking permits were left for us and we managed to park opposite the cottage.

Communication was second to none, speedy and responsive every step of the way.

Thank you for the lovely welcome pack and gift for our son, he loved it. We will be visiting again and have already recommended the cottage to our friends and family x x

Perfect little holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over a long weekend with our 2 small children. The gifts on arrival were really thoughtful and got our 4 year old super excited for the holiday. The cottage itself was full of charm and had everything we needed. The small proportions and furniture took some getting used to but understand it's just an old cottage and it adds to the charm. Brilliant location and fantastic views of the castle and harbour. Overall a fantastic stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thank you

Clean, very well presented, great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location near to the town centre. The cottage is well presented with everything you need.

It was our first trip away with our 9 week old and Ruth & Marc created a welcome bag for our son with an age appropriate gift which was a lovely touch.

We would def stay again, the only tiny critique is the living room seats are not the comfiest.

Excellent in every respect.

  • 5 of 5

A very well maintained cottage in townhouse style on 3 floors. It is small but has everything one could need. We especially appreciated the cribs and high chairs for our infants. It is about 5 minutes from the beach part way up a steep hill on a cobbled street. The castle is above and the sea below. Beds are extremely comfortable. An outstanding holiday residence!

Perfect cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, located right in the heart of Scarborough. Cottage well presented - with seaside theme. Spotlessly clean, well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Owners very pleasant to deal with - thank you for the 'treats' awaiting us on our arrival, especially the wonderful cream cakes.

A great base to explore Scarborough and the surrounding area. RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs is a must if you are visiting between April and June. Hundreds of thousands of sea birds breed on these cliffs during these months. A real treat to see puffins in their natural habitat.

Whitby and Robin Hood Bay are both worth a visit, as is the pretty village of Helmsley.

Thank you Ruth and Marc - we hope to return next year

Great cottage, beautifully presented.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely stay at Driftwood Cottage. The attention to detail is superb and everything is thought of down to slippers to wear around the cottage. The seaside theme goes throughout the property adding to the holiday ambience. Contact with the owners was very efficient, and the treats awaiting us on our arrival were much appreciated. All the equipment you could need for your stay have been thought of and provided. With the parking permit provided we had no problem parking even on a bank holiday weekend. The cottage is in a great location for exploring Scarborough which we did mainly on foot, but the open topped bus along the promenade gave us a n enjoyable journey home from the North bay. l

Lots to do and see on the doorstep.
