Pre Arrival

We are situated just off the A165 only 6 miles from Scarborough and 2 miles from Filey

By car – Look out for the roundabout with the Plough Inn Pub and the Petrol Station. Don’t let the Sat Nav take you into Lebberston village. You must take the road that goes along the back of the Petrol Station and the Flower of May drive is just on your left.

By rail – The nearest railway station is Filey 2 miles and Scarborough 6 miles. Taxis are available at both Railway Stations.

Buses run every hour between Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough, during the summer months. The buses leave from the opposite side of the Railway Station in Scarborough and from the bus station in Filey which is a short walk from the train station. The bus stops at the end of the Flower of May drive. There is no shelter or seating at the bus stops. The walk up the drive takes approximately 10-15mins. It has a very slight uphill gradient.
