The guest suite is perfect for visitors and outside to the rear there is also a private car park.

The apartments are spacious and comfortable, offering a cosy atmosphere that will make you feel at home right away.

In the bedroom, you'll discover a walk-in wardrobe and carpet throughout, while the level access shower room is conveniently tiled and includes various safety features, such as easy grip rails and non-slip flooring.

Local Area

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.
