Ravenscar House - Local Area

Ravenscar and The Cinder Track

Ravenscar is a traditional victorian village built in the late 1800s initially envisaged to become a new victorian town between Scarborough and Whitby. The village sits on the coast with beautiful sea views. Ravenscar is located approximately 10 miles north of Scarborough and 9 miles south of Whitby and the village has a hotel with a public bar. The former railway line, linking Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby, runs through Ravenscar and is now more commonly known as The Cinder Track, a very popular walking and cycling route throughout the year. The Cinder Track can be accessed directly outside Ravenscar House. You can explore the early industrial heritage at the Peak Alum Works or the 120 feet high Larpool viaduct over the River Esk, near Whitby. The Cinder Track now forms 21miles of route 1 of the National Cycle network.

Within a few miles there are a number of village pubs offering good food and real beer.
