Food is freshly prepared and as far as possible sourced locally. Special dietry needs are provided for at no extra cost. Picnic lunches are available to order as are evening meals.
The Russell is convenient for all local amneties.
An attractive detached building, the Russell is on a quiet road overlooking the glen of Peasholm Park.
No more than a five minute walk from the North Bay Railway and beach. It is convenient for the Bowls Centre, Scarborough Cricket Ground, Sea Life Centre, Indoor Swimming pool, and Scarborough Outdoor Theatre. This final amenity along with Peasholm park ensures the opportunity of attending a variety of Scarborough Concerts. Peasholm also offers Pitch and Putt golf, a boating lake, tree walk and Naval battle.
The town centre is a fifteen minute walk away unless you choose to walk around the castle headland, well worth the effort. An open topped bus operates along this route during the summer months and will drop you off at the harbour side Futurist Theatre or Scarborough Spa.
The Stephen Joseph Theatre, opposite the railway station, the Spa and YMCA offer a variety of entertainment throughout most of the year. Scarborough has an interesting range of shops, museums, cafe's and restaurants. The town is full of history with the castle, old buildings and narrow cobbled streets. Stunning in all seasons.
Olivers Mount, famous for its motorcycle racing, and memorial overlooking the town is worth a visit .There are many local walks with refreshment venues worth visiting. (We've got details!) We are just off the Cleveland Way with its spectacular views, definitely worth the effort and deserving of a picnic lunch.
Good transport links to, around and out of Scarborough mean a car is not always essential. The North Yorks Moors bus travels around the many picturesque villages and moorlands. Dalby Forest is also close by and a free pass is available to guests with its beautiful walks, cycle trails, tea rooms and "Go Ape" experience. Filey, Bridlington and Hull are easily accessible by rail or car to the south, whilst Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby are to the North.
Inland we have Pickering with its museum and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway that runs through to Whitby. Hutton le Hole, a chocolate box village and its famous Rydale Folk Museum (often used for period drama and film), and then on to Helmsley the home of Duncombe Park, Rievaulx Abbey and Castle.
The Walled Gardens of Scampton, Eden Camp at Malton, Castle Howard and Yorkshire Lavender near Terrington and the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington could all help to break the journey up if you wish to vist the City of York.
These are just a sample of what Scarborough, and the east coast of yorkshire, has to offer. (On top of the warm welcome, sun, sea and air of course.)
