Our shop is located on a farm just six miles from the beach and about 4.5 miles from everything else. Most people – even those that camp on the farm – rent cars when they come here so that they can get around to see the area and surf when they want and have enough independence to enjoy their stay.
If you fly into Boston, you can get a shuttle up to Portsmouth which is about 20 minutes from the shop – we can probably come get you if we know your arrival time a few days before.
There are dozens of possible lodging opportunities in and around York, but here are a few very local suggestions for places we think you might enjoy.
For those on a budget, we can offer you a place to pitch your tent or park your Westfalia on the farm where our shop is located. That’s just fifteen bucks a night for the pleasure of walking to work for the week, with hot shower, full kitchen, wireless internet, and the racket the cows make at feeding time all thrown in for free. Just let us know ahead of time so we can make sure the grass is mowed.
Our good friend Joe owns two of the coolest Inns in York. Both are located across the street from the beach, one on Long Sands and the other just around the corner on Short Sands. Both are tidy little cottage-type Inns and have a full bar and restaurant on the first floor, with a few clean and comfy rooms upstairs, all with great views of the surf.
Book a room at either the Inn on the Blues or Stones Throw, punch in the word “grainsurfboards2014″ in the discount code and get 15% off the price.
*Note that there can be some noisy evenings with live music at the Inn on the Blues. If travelling with kids or if you tend to be a light sleeper, you might be better at Stones Throw.
