Available exclusively for those over 70, Sycamore Court is a development of 54 one and two bedroom retirement apartments with views towards Scarborough Castle and the surrounding sea, making it one of the most beautiful spots in the area.
The development features excellent security systems including 24 hour, 365 days a year onsite staffing. There is 1 hour of domestic assistance each week and the on-site Estate Management team can create a bespoke care package if required (additional charges apply).
An onsite bistro provides freshly prepared meals and snacks and is the hub of the development. Residents also benefit from a social lounge, where you can relax and catch up with friends, as well as a sun room with balcony overlooking the cricket pitch.
The guest suite is available to book (separate charge applies) which is perfect for visitors wishing to extend their stay.
Furthermore, there's lift access throughout, so it's easy for residents to get around.
The development is just a mile away from a Tesco supermarket and there are bus stops 500 yards away that take you to the town centre, train station and further afield. Scarborough train station has regular services to York and surrounding towns, while the development is easily accessed by road via the A64 to York and Leeds, the A165 to Bridlington, and the A171 to Whitby.
Scarborough has plenty of things to see and do. Once primarily a seaside resort, it's now also home to many cultural attractions, including live theatres, creative arts centres and museums. The annual Scarborough Jazz Festival is held at the historic Scarborough Spa every September, while another festival, Seafest, sees folk singers, shantymen, musicians and artists flock to the harbour to put on a not-to-be-missed show!
The beaches in Scarborough are not only a great place to visit in summer, but also the starting point to explore along the Yorkshire coast. South Sands has an outer harbour for pleasure boats and yachts, where you can take a trip out around the bay. Head further north to find the North York Moors National Park, full of birds and deer, or go down south to the world famous Bempton Cliffs, where you'll find puffins and gannets.
