Perfect for a couple, this beautiful, quirky property has one of the hottest addresses in Scarborough, set within an historic building close to the Rotunda Museum and Spa Bridge.

The fabulous location of this property means it boasts some of the best sea views along the Yorkshire Coast. Meander up the historic streets to explore Scarborough Castle or take a leisurely stroll around the South Cliff area, there is so much to enjoy here without having to step foot in a vehicle if you don't want to. You won't go hungry during your stay as there's a huge selection of eateries; from traditional fish and chips to bistro brasserie restaurants.

 

The accommodation is located on the first floor of the building, set over various levels with all rooms looking out to sea. The lounge can be found on the upper level and is a unique semi-circular shape, filled with natural light which streams through large double sash windows. Warm oak flooring and a large comfy sofa to relax on add the finishing touches to this warm and welcoming room. The spacious kitchen next door features sleek glossy units and all mod cons, including a touch screen hob and dishwasher. The large sash windows in the bedroom take full advantage of the incredible sea views, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of a queen-sized bed. The bathroom is just next door and comes with a bath, handheld shower  over the bath and WC.

 

Outside you'll find a pleasant grassed area in an elevated position looking down to the ocean; a wonderful place to throw down a blanket and enjoy a picnic during the warmer months.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The property has a fabulous location with one of the best sea views of any holiday cottage along the Yorkshire Coast. Right in the heart of town, you have all of the delights of Scarborough within a mile including its gorgeous sandy beaches, cafes and restaurants.

Make your way up through the historic streets to explore Scarborough Castle, situated less than a mile from the property or pop into St Mary's churchyard to visit Anne Bronte's grave. Enjoy a stroll around the South Cliff area taking in the famous spa and Italian Gardens. Catch the cliff lift down to the beach and walk around to the peaceful North Bay, visit the renowned Sea Life Centre or explore the beautiful Peasholm Park with its boating lake, woodland walks and oriental influences.

The property is within easy reach of the rest of the Yorkshire Coast. Much like its Cornish counterpart, the North Yorkshire coastline is a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact, the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby (20 miles). Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries. Robin Hood's Bay (20 miles) and Sandsend (25 miles) are also worth a visit, each with their own unique charm.

The property's position means you are also perfectly placed to take in the best of North York Moors. This dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland which is just 20 miles away. Somewhat smaller than the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors still cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the Dales, you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the Moors. In place of harsh limestone and dramatic peaks, you'll find gently rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but it is cast in comforting soft focus.

We recommend taking the road from Thornton-Le-Dale or Pickering north towards Whitby to experience it in all its grandeur. There are countless pretty villages and towns to explore in the area.

Our stay in the property was a unique experience and the owner made us feel very welcome, unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short due to illness hence the short review.

The property was excellent, and it was a great to be able to stay in an old victorian building.

I would only suggest small dogs due to space and no garden etc (also be aware of the angry dog that lives next door) Bed too soft and too small for an average size couple. Also the boiler constantly needing to be re-pressured isnt great. Every morning by 5am the seagulls are extremely vocal and by 6:30am the daily bootcamp running up Museum terraceRead more, up and down spa bridge is very loud. Property is clean and well equipped but the above issues devalue it. Didnt stop us having a good time Hide

The property was in an ideal location, just 5 min walk to the seafront and town and all rooms at the property had sea views. Other reviews mentioned the noise of the seagulls but I hadnt appreciated how noisy they would be but they were rearing their chicks when we stayed.

A splendid location with easy access to so much the area has to offer.

Ideally located by the Spa Bridge, South Bay. You have to park on the road but not to far from the property (although lugging bags up or down is a bit of hard work) but then scratchcards are provided so that after paying for your first couple of hours parking is free for the rest of your stay.
