Scarborough has two fabulous bays, North and South (about 10 miles away). Bridlington is also a great seaside destination is about 15 miles away. Please note: If you have dogs, there are dog restrictions on most Yorkshire Coast beaches from May to September inclusive. And don't forget to bear in mind there are two tides a day!

Are there any local cycle routes close to Humble Bee?

There are so many cycle routes close to the farm and one of them is the Cinder Path between Scarborough and Whitby. The Cinder Path follows the former railway route between the two seaside towns and some of it is covered by cinders so this can be tricky for certain types of bike tyre.The good thing about the route is the majority of it is fairly flat and the starting point is roughly a 20-minute drive from Humble Bee Farm. 

The track itself is now an inland path which runs parallel to the more arduous Cleveland Way National Trail, one of the most spectacular long-distance rambling paths in England and is definitely NOT suitable for tackling on two wheels! So, the whole Cinder Track route is approximately 21 miles from Scarborough to Whitby, and of course there’s the return journey to consider. 

During the spring, the route is so tranquil and colourful with fresh leaves on the trees and countless spring flowers dotting the route. There is also the smell of wild garlic and bluebells along certain stretches … your senses can go into overdrive and it is stunning to see. The route passes through a number of pretty villages including Scalby, Cloughton, Hayburn Wyke, Ravenscar and Boggle Hole (one of our Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins is named after this little seaside village).

Also, it is advisable to wear a cycling helmet as there are some rough stretches along the route. Certain parts of the track fall within the North York Moors National Park and if you tackled the whole route, then it’s a 42-mile return trek.
