The vale of scarborough/pickering
The Vale of Scarborough is an attractive rural area of flat or gently undulating countryside dotted with pretty villages leading to the popular coastal towns of Scarborough and Filey.
Parts of this coastal area are designated as being of European importance, Flamborough Head for its chalk cliff grassland habitats and along with Bempton Cliffs, for birds. The archaeologically important Star Carr site is recognised by English Heritage as being of national and international significance.
To the south are the attractive rolling hills and inviting valleys of the Yorkshire Wolds.
To the east are the cliff tops from Bridlington via Flamborough and northwards to Scarborough.
To the north the land rises up to the protected landscape of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
Eventually, to the west, the Vales of Pickering & York lead onwards to the city York & other urban and commercial areas of South & West Yorkshire.
Entertainment can be found in and around the coastal towns between Scarborough and Bridlington including the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round at Scarborough (the base of Alan Ayckbourn).
Local Golf Courses included Driffield, Ganton, Bridlington, Filey, Flamborough and Scarborough. Sailing and sea fishing can be found at Bridlington. Horse racing is available at Beverley & York.
Scarborough & Beverley provide popular shopping areas within half an hour by car and York with its Mediaeval walls and architecture provides a lively and attractive atmosphere approx 1 hour by car.
The area is criss crossed with bridal paths and the property has a bridal path immediately beyond it's southern boundary. Here you can exercise your horse, avoiding the main roads and enjoy the wonderful views. A local rider informed us that the beach can be reached within 40 minutes and 'quicker, if your horse likes to trot' with minimum time spent on roads. Hedgerow Cottage itself boasts a purpose built stable block with Fieldguard matting.
For the adventurous, Dalby Forest between Scarborough and Pickering provides outdoor pursuits and for the energetic the North Yorkshire Moors National Park provides excellent walking, often with refreshments available in villages en route.
The village of Gristhorpe lies within the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. This small and attractive rural village of less than 400 inhabitants is only 1.5 miles from Filey and 5 miles from Scarborough. Both these coastal towns provide a range of local facilities. In addition to many independently owned shops and national supermarkets there are also popular regular markets. Schools, both state and private, are nearby.
Hedgerow Cottage lies beside a quiet country lane being situated just past the railway crossing at the end of the main street in the village.
