Milbar Group - July 2018

"I come to Cober Hill to relax, to walk, to read, to enjoy good food, comfortable sitting rooms and beautiful gardens! Everything of beauty is here. Every creature comfort is provided. Cober Hill is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is also very good value for money."

Rosemary Donaldson - July 2018

"The staff could not have been more helpful, we missed supper as we had a theatre visit and got the most wonderful platter of sandwiches instead. I have never known such hospitality or willingness to please."

McCourt Social - July 2018

"We've been coming for the last 12 years and have always appreciated the welcome, care, service and the food!! The time here with you flies by all too quickly, thank you."

Bryan and Karen Witty - June 2018

Yorkshire Pastellists - June 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

"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

Educational Visit Information

Teachers are well-versed in the fact that school trips contribute significantly to the personal development of children, this helps to improve leadership skills and team work, as well as trust and respect amongst their peers and teachers. For many, this is an opportunity to shine outside of the classroom as well as gaining valuable experiences from cultural visits and social skills learning.

Cober Hill has a wealth of experience and expertise with facilities and resources for education groups and is perfect for school residential visits. We are found just less than 6 miles north of Scarborough and 12 miles south of Whitby, in a pleasant secluded but secure setting on the outskirts of the village of Cloughton. We are also within easy walking distance of the sea.

Situated within the North York Moors, Cober Hill also sits upon the Cleveland Way and the old Scarborough to Whitby railway line; the Cinder Track, both hugely popular for outdoor activities.

Why choose Cober Hill?


Cober Hill has much to offer educational parties, including fantastic en-suite accommodation, on site facilities, 6 acres of grounds, and the surrounding area is particularly rich in learning opportunities. 

This applies equally to all ages of school groups, from primary and junior schools to students from establishments of further and higher education, who may well be carrying out graduate of even post graduate studies. 

There are two buildings with 67 en-suite bedrooms, accommodating a maximum of 140 children and teachers. The bedrooms vary in size; some are large enough for four or more students, whilst there are also single occupancy rooms for teaching and support staff. A large hall, a Theatre with stage and a conservatory provide perfect classroom settings, and can act as base rooms. We also have a choice of 6 lounge areas for places to relax, which all have a television for down-time. There are two large dining rooms, and the catering team provide a variety of nutritious and balanced meals. We are happy to cater for any medical allergies and diets. The extensive grounds are great for educational purposes and study opportunities. In addition, you can take advantage of one of the numerous orienteering trails that have been created or the local village trails created with school groups in mind.

Our experienced conference co-ordinators are available throughout every stage of the planning of the trip, assisting with room allocations, special needs, dietary requirements, classroom layout and set up. Staff are also available to assist and advise during your visit to ensure it runs smoothly.

At Cober Hill we take the safety and security of our staff and guests very seriously, and offer assistance and advice with risk assessments.
