Local Insight

Scarborough has lots to offer. The South Beach has all the fish and chip shops, arcades and traditional seaside things you might expect. The north beach is a very different environment with beautiful walks, a lovely beach, no shops and an old castle sandwiched in the middle. Further inland, North Yorkshire is an often overlooked gem of a county offering beautiful scenery and countless attractions both historic and modern.

  • Nunnington Hall
    The sheltered walled garden, with spring-flowering organic meadows, orchards and flamboyant peacocks. Nestled on the quiet banks of the River Rye. Take the afternoon to enjoy and absorb the atmosphere of this former family home. Explore period rooms while hearing the Hall's many tales, and then discover one of the world's finest collections of miniature rooms in the attic. The Hall also holds a series of important art and photography exhibitions during the year. Why not make a day of it? Its close proximity to Rievaulx Terrace makes it an ideal afternoon visit after a walk at Rievaulx Terrace in the morning.

  • Rievaulx Terrace and Temples
    Discover one of Ryedale's true gems – the 18th-century landscape of Rievaulx Terrace. Stroll through woods then out on to the grass terrace, with its stunning views down over the Cistercian ruin of Rievaulx Abbey. In spring the bank between the temples is awash with wild flowers, in summer the lawns are the perfect spot for a picnic, while in autumn the beech woods are a mass of rich hues. Step back into the 18th century as you gaze up at the wonderful painted ceiling of the Ionic Temple. Being so close to Nunnington Hall, the Terrace makes an ideal morning visit before discovering Nunnington in the afternoon.

  • Mount Grace Priory
    This is England's most important Carthusian ruin. The individual cells reflect the hermit-like isolation of the monks, a reconstruction enables visitors to see the austere and simple furnishings. There is a small herb garden.
    Visit their website
  • Treasurer's House
    Originally home to the treasurers of York Minster and built over a Roman road, the house is not all that it seems. Nestled behind the Minster, its size, splendour and contents are a constant surprise to visitors – as are the famous ghost stories. The house was carefully restored between 1897 and 1930 by one remarkable man, wealthy local industrialist Frank Green, with thirteen rooms presented in a variety of historic styles. Outside is an attractive formal sunken garden and herb and produce garden.

  • Castle Howard
    The 1,000 acres of gardens are stunning whatever the time of year, and with many diverse areas to explore, visitors can find peace and tranquillity whichever path they choose. Delightful walks reveal in turn hidden glades and breathtaking views. With many terrace walks and lakeside paths, memorable sights include the Atlas Fountain and the Temple of the Four Winds.

  • Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens
    The beautiful, award winning gardens of Burton Agnes Hall offer something for everyone, from the walled garden containing over four thousand different plant species, herbaceous borders, a jungle garden and national collection of campanulas, to the woodland walk with creepy crawlies to spot, as well as the maze and giant games for children and adults alike.

Lovely Hotel

My wife and I spent a 4 night stay at The New Southlands. The rooms was very clean and on the 3rd. floor very quiet. The staff were very friendly and efficient and meals were first class with a large choice. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends. Thank you to all members of the staff for a lovely stay.

Good management at this hotel!

This is our 3rd visit to the New Southlands Hotel and we found the standards were just as good as ever! Our upgrade room (superior) was huge, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. ALL the staff are friendly, polite and very efficient. The food is good and varied. The entertainment was superb! The whole hotel was very warm and clean. We find it extremely good value for money and will definitely go again. P.S. Weekends are best! P.P.S. don’t care much for paying for car park though!

We found the hotel clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and pleasant. Not happy with the parking charges and thought the food was a letdown, cold and not very tasty.

Relaxing weekend

Just returned from weekend at New Southlands hotel Scarborough. We liked this hotel, our 1st floor room was comfortable enough and as the weather had warmed up we had to turn the radiator off! The break was made all the more enjoyable by our driver Phil, who was pleasant and knowledgeable about the area - a credit to Shearings! All in all a lovely weekend.

Mixed time in New Southlands

Food here rivals the lakes and lounge areas superb. Recently widowed -single rooms are cupboards and not overly clean. Assistant manager moved friend and I to better room on last night-what a shame we weren't there in the first place. Told we could upgrade easily on arrival-not so-beware single travellers. One receptionist very unhelpful. Spoiled a restful break. Total credit to Eddie and team in the restaurant for giving me a reason to visit again-without the catering staff I wouldn't consider it.

Great base for a Holiday

We enjoyed a lovely 4 night stay with family. With myself and my partner been both in the Hospitality industry we are sometimes hard to please, but the restaurant & bar staff were excellent. Hotel room was basic but clean and tidy only complaint was that the room was a little cold when we entered in the evening but we weren't cold during the night at all. Great Base for sighting in Scarborough & Surrounding areas! I am sure we will be back.

Warm and comfortable hotel. Good menu and high standard. Just felt a little rushed during meal times. Staff helpful and friendly. Entertainment good. Rooms clean and lots of hot water readily available. Decor a little faded and tired.

Four Day Break at Scarborough

We stayed for four nights in March with a couple of friends. We received a very warm welcome. The room was a superior room (just as it said) with everything on hand. Well equipped with everything you would ever need. The food and staff in the restaurant were second to none. The porridge wasn't up to the Scottish Shearings standard!! Everything else was first class. Staff were warm and friendly and very helpful. A lovely relaxing break and will go again.

A Great Five Days

My wife and I have just returned from the New Southlands after a five day first visit. We were very impressed by the accommodation (a standard room), good food and great service. The location is out of town but everything is very accessible by bus and on foot. We enjoyed out stay and would gladly recommend it and return again ourselves.
