About Ruth & Marc Bagley

Myself (Ruth) and Marc have lived in Scarborough all our lives, Marc is a Merchant Navy Sea Captain ...... so you could say you would be staying in a 'Captain's Cottage'

We have two young children that love to visit the cottage as its so close to fun things to do like a walk near the castle and visit the arcades and beach only moments away. Not to forget indulging in some fish and chips followed by a 99 ice cream !

Ruth & Marc Bagley purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Ruth & Marc Bagley chose Scarborough

The main reason we chose this property to set up as a holiday cottage is the location, its excellent ! Literally moments away from the Scarborough seafront, beach, harbour and many more attractions. Also perfect for visiting the north bay too.

Newly refurbished to a high standard.

Very family friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is located close to Scarborough Castle on the headland perfect for exploring both of Scarborough's bays- the South Bay with its harbour, beach, fun arcades, cafes and pubs, and the North Bay a quieter more rural area with its beach, lovely walks, famous open air theatre and newly opened Alpamare Waterpark!

A traditional fisherman's cottage in the heart of Scarborough's old town with beamed ceilings, complimented by a modern twist of a brand new fitted sleek modern kitchen, brand new furniture throughout and recently decorated to a high standard.

Luxurious linen, towels and extras!

Beautifully clean Fishermans cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, mother in law and I stay at Driftwood Cottage for February half term.

On walking into the cottage it was lovely and clean, with all the amenities you require. It was fantastic not to have to take little bits such as washing up liquid, washing tablets and towels. The extra little touches that the owner provided made the stay extra special and my daughter loved her little gift bag.

I had some lovely messages from the owners and although we didn’t need them, I believe they would have been there if we had had a problem.

It is in a perfect location for walking everywhere with the car being left just up the road.

I would certainly recommend this cottage to everyone and would definitely look at stay there again.

Thank you for a lovely little break.

A lovely cottage in a perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood Cottage was the perfect place as a base for our walking holiday. With views of the castle and easy access to the beach and harbour it would be ideal for non walkers also.

Although small the cottage has everything required for a relaxing break. Comfortable beds, soft duvets, a living flame fire to take the chill off the night air and a small courtyard with seating for al fresco relaxation.

The thoughtful welcome gifts were much appreciated and the check in and out went without hitch due to excellent communication.

A great little spot for our weekend of glorious sunshine.

Cosy quaint cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little cottage, great location, lovely little treats on arrival cakes, wine and of course tea, coffee and milk. Lovely and clean. Surprisingly bigger bedrooms than we imagined. I can't fault any thing about this cottage, the only problem we had was that we had some one that is not very good at walking and we had a wheelchair, but don't let that put you off, take a big breath and you will get up hill. thanks for a great stay.

A lovely, quaint cottage ideally located with great access to the tourist locations.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully charming property, with very hospitable hosts in Ruth and Marc. On arrival some amenities had been left by Ruth and Marc which was a lovely touch in settling in to the property. The property itself was ideal for me and my wife, a good size with everything you could need for your stay. There were also a couple of guides available in the cottage which very much helped us plan our days, with good recommendations and travel times etc .The location of the cottage was spot on for ease of access to the castle, seafront , restaurants, shops, amusements etc. There were some great views from the property as well of the castle. I would very much recommend staying in this cottage and visiting Scarborough with plenty to see and do. A great cottage and a wonderful trip made a lot more enjoyable by the small touches left in this cottage. A great stay.

Excellent holiday cottage, lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on a rainy week in March. Despite the rotten weather we had a great time and couldn't fault this little cottage. Location is good in the old part of Scarborough, close to the harbour and beach. The cottage was warm and cosy. Great view of the castle walls from the skylight in the main bedroom. Nice touches by the owners included the provision of hotel style disposable slippers, a lovely fresh cake each on arrival from the local bakers, bottle of wine, nice toiletries in the bathroom.

Thanks very much, we will be back later in the year.

Me and my family had a lovely stay at Driftwood Cottage! Very family friendly, with buckets, spades and baby gates making it easier to travel lighter; along with essentials you would need already supplied for you in the cottage! You couldn't ask for more, and the owners are amazing! Ruth went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay! Defo recommed to anyone thinking of going, we will most definitely be back!

Thanks guys,

Jess x
