A charming, intimate
village on the outskirts of Scarborough,
Cloughton lies in ‘Heartbeat’ country and is
the ideal base from which to explore North
Yorkshire’s many attractions. In the 11th
century Domesday Book it was called ‘Clocktune’.
A local conference centre, Cober Hill, was owned in the late 19th century by Solicitor General Frank Lockwood, MP, who prosecuted the writer Oscar Wilde. Visitors to the historic property included George Bernard Shaw and Lloyd George.
