1. Re: hotels

Given a good run Scarborough is about 3 hours by car from Leicester. I prefer Whitby 20 miles to the north. A lovely fishing town with great fish & chips, jet jewellery, a ruined abbey and Dracula's grave (alledgely). Not much in the way of beach though. A few miles to the south is Robin Hood's Bay, an even smaller place with a few B&B's.

If you want beaches for sunbathing however, then Scarborough will at least do that, weather permitting!
