  • Vintage chic North Yorkshire holiday home with stunning sea views and within easy walking distance of the beach
  • Charming, characterful and packed with period features
  • Situated in the heart of the town, close to shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants
Property code: G0150

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.

In an enviable spot in the old town of Scarborough, this quirky apartment is a perfect bolthole for a couple and their dog looking for a relaxing break on the coast, with attractions, restaurants and entertainment on the doorstep.

 

The apartment is on the first floor, with a layout that maximises its compact space, and a great vintage style. Wake up to superb views of the sea and the Spa Bridge from the comfortable bedroom with its open stairwell and en-suite bathroom, before heading down for breakfast in the well-designed kitchen. There’s a large breakfast bar to enjoy your morning coffee and pastries or perhaps tuck into a full breakfast to fuel up for a day exploring. And at the end of the day, curl up together on the comfortable sofa with the dog at your feet and watch a film with a fantastic backdrop of the illuminated bridge and sea beyond.

 

The house is on a pedestrianised road, and it’s a great neighbourhood to explore on foot. Visit the Rotunda Museum and stroll the leafy streets to Scarborough Art Gallery. Enjoy some serious pampering at the Crown Spa Hotel or take in a show at Scarborough Spa entertainment venue. Stroll along the beach, half a mile away, to the pier for some traditional seaside fun, and walk around the harbour to the funfair too, or climb the hill to Scarborough Castle. For a trip out of town, take the train along the coast to Filey and wander along the promenade or let the dogs enjoy a run on the sandy beach.

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

  • 1 bedroom – double bed
  • 1 bathroom with bath and handheld shower and WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher
  • Electric flame-effect wood burner
  • On street parking available close to the property. The parking needs to be pre arranged with the owner and does come with an additional cost.
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 1 medium sized dog welcome
  • Shop, pub and beach within 2 miles
  • LCD TV with Freeview
  • Regret no children
  • Located in a Pay & Display area, although subsidised parking can be purchased via owner, £5 per day

This is a lovely 'quirky' property in a great location the only problem at first was the vast amount of seagulls that lived under/on the bridge just outside the window which was very noisy but the place is right next to the sea more or less so if you don't mind the noise then not a problem and you do get used to them. Very clean and well maintainedRead more property with interesting features would definitely stay here again. Hide

finding a parking spot once you have vacated it is virtually impossible, and perhaps a warning that because of the amount of steps you have climb, the apartment is unsuitable for older guests.

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

Quaint and quirky. Good location. For those who are not familiar with the area be prepared for steep hilly walks and lots of stairs. Busy times are also an issue for parking Fabulous place for surfers and water sports.
