Travelling from the south, take the A171 towards Whitby at Cloughton and about 6 miles outside Scarborough take the righthand turn marked Ravenscar.

Drive past it, and continue into the car park around the back. The cottage entrances are here. From the North, head towards Whitby and take the A171 towards Scarborough. About 9 miles out of Whitby on the left hand bend you'll spot the Falcon Inn. Turn left, then left again and follow the road to the bottom of the hill.
