Cloughton is located 4 miles/6.5 kilometres north of Scarborough. Cloughton lies on the main Scarborough to Whitby road (A171) but is less than a mile from the sea with access to a small beach and fine coastal scenery. There is also access to the pedestrian and cycle path on the disused coastal railway from Scarborough to Whitby. Sandstone for the building of Scarborough castle was quarried near the village. The disused Scarborough to Whitby railway line passes through Cloughton. The views from it are stunning, with panoramic vistas of the Heritage Coast. It's more or less flat and there's no traffic so it's an ideal route for walkers, horseriders and cyclists. It's 20 miles in total but, of course, you don't have to go the whole way. Facilities include cafe/tea shop, public house, church, general store, public phone box, post office and a regular bus service.
