Here is what our guests have to say!

"Great accommodation, the kids loved it. Great use of the Theatre as our own area, and the Reception staff are excellent & very accommodating."

Netherton Primary School - June 2018

"The highlights of our stay were the wonderful surroundings, the excellent food and the warm, friendly atmosphere created by delightful staff who work so hard to give excellent service. Can't wait to come again next year!"

Yorkshire Pastellists - June 2018

"We chose Cober Hill for our group visit because of the beautiful grounds, lovely staff, good food, all the facilities and the peaceful, friendly atmosphere."

Menston Art Club - May 2018

"Cober Hill is a very special place - not only the accommodation & facilities, but the staff are so welcoming and all are fabulous with our children. Many thanks to everyone."

Mowbray Primary School - May 2018

"It is a beautiful hotel with amazing grounds that the children couldn't wait to explore! Thank you so much for a fantastic stay, the children have loved every minute of it. The prices were reasonable and the facilities were perfect for us!"

Todwick Primary School - May 2018

"Large enough for our party, good walking area and reasonably priced. All the staff have been helpful and understanding, patient and polite at all times. Impressed with the spacious rooms - especially singles. The grounds are beautiful and it is very quiet - noticeably at night."

Churches Together in Bingham - May 2018

"You ticked all the boxes. I live locally in Scarborough and there is no where better to visit than Cober Hill! You can't improve on perfection - this is Heaven on Earth."

Private Guest - May 2018

"I must say having been to Cober Hill since the mid 50s, then working there in the mid 60s, in essence it really doesn't change. The staff have always been friendly, helpful and considerate to the guests needs. This is partly what makes Cober Hill so special. I loved it as a child, as did my children, and now my grandchildren are doing the same - building friendships which last all year until they meet again. I just wish I was able to bottle up the essence of Cober and get it out occasionally when the weather is grey!"

Jenny Gladwell - April 2018

"The staff at meal-times were very friendly and great with children. The food was lovely and very accommodating for dietary needs."

St John's CE School - March 2018

"Convenient location - not far and easy to get to - with a large work room which is ideal for quilting projects. Everyone enjoyed themselves as usual, they commented on the friendly staff and good food once again."

Friendship Quilters - February 2018

Richard Baines Birdwatching

The world-famous seabird colonies of Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough Head have long been home to one of the UK's most incredible natural spectacles. Our tour has been specially created to make the most of this unique place, exploring both land and sea with local guides and the chance to see over 100 species!

At the top of Flamborough cliffs we will be searching for migrant birds returning from Africa and on their way to the Arctic! At this time of year anything can turn up from regular but scarce birds such as the tiny Firecrest to unusual species such as Citrine Wagtail. Local expert guides have up-to-the-minute news on all the bird sightings, meaning you will have the best chance possible to get good views. You will also have the opportunity to learn and share knowledge in a small group environment. At Bempton we can look down at the packed ledges and terraces of the dramatic, 400-foot high cliffs where Gannets, Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Fulmars, Kittiwakes and Shags go to and fro in their hundreds of thousands.
