Once a 17th century water mill, set on a quiet riverside, two miles north of the town and 15 minutes' walk from Scalby Mills and the North Bay. Scarborough Youth Hostel provides quality low-cost accommodation for families, school, college, university and sports groups as well as individuals who wish to enjoy, explore, or simply unwind on the beautiful North Yorkshire coast. Two long sandy beaches, miles of rugged coastline, and one of the UK's largest areas of forest and moorland, make Scarborough the perfect base for activity breaks with excellent walking, cycling, surfing and sailing. There is plenty for those interested in birds, wildlife, history, geology and the seashore. Scarborough regularly hosts live concerts and festivals, TT racing, surf competitions and theatre productions. Use the well equipped kitchen or enjoy a cooked breakfast in the dining room. Sole use available for large groups. School/group packages: breakfast, packed lunch & evening meals as required.

Scarborough Youth Hostel - Tour de Yorkshire 2018 - Stage 3

Vibrant, non-stop, exciting

July 29th 2017

Scarborough Hostel is just outside the town itself…

Converted from a 17th century water mill, Scarborough Hostel is set on a quiet riverside, two miles and an easy walk north of the town. Yes, you can choose to unwind on the beautiful North Yorkshire coast with its long sandy beaches; miles of rugged coastline; and all that forest and moorland; or you can get down into the town itself. 

It mixes a traditional fishing harbour, Victorian resort and vibrant modern town. There’s all the attractions that this suggests as well as a calender full of events. As I write this (July 2017), upcoming events include gigs from Madness and pop star Jess Glynne; a retro music festival full of 80s and 90s stars; the annual cricket festival and a motor sports event on the national hill climb tour. 


Pretty much ‘something for eveyone’.
