Overview

About the property

Five Bedroom Detached Chalet

Spa Chalet is a Victorian 150 year old Swiss-style holiday home that was designed by the Crystal Palace creator Sir Joseph Paxton in the late 1850's. It was totally restored to it's former glory by its present owners in 2009. Built into South Cliff a few feet above the sands, it is the towns most unusual heritage home and possibly the only detached house on this famous seafront. The house has been completely refurbished and modernised from top to bottom, whilst retaining the many period features. On the first floor of the house entrance level, there is a beautiful lounge with sea views, a large dining/kitchen area which comprises of a combined washer/dryer, dishwasher and a stainless steel range style oven. Also on this level is the master bedroom which has an impressive en-suite with a roll top bath, and an additional double bedroom and a completely tiled wet room. On the ground floor there are a further three double bedrooms, all with en-suites. The layout makes the most of the uninterrupted majestic panoramic sea views, especially from the balcony that runs along two sides of the building.

Best views in Scarborough!

  • 4 of 5

The chalet has a really fantastic position with wonderful views around the bay, with the weather conditions, the tides, and the activity on the beach, in the sea, and in and out of the harbour constantly changing. Being in the centre of Scarborough means that it is very easy to find plenty to do without ever getting in the car, which is a bonus. Although a bit of gawping by passers-by can be expected, this is not intrusive as from the house they can't be seen.

The house is currently up for sale and gives the impression that a certain amount of maintenance is due. A historic property of this kind, by the sea, cannot be easy to maintain. The living rooms are comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped (though one really big pan would have been useful, and the microwave appeared not to work - it did, but couldn't be set).The décor in bedrooms and bathrooms was a bit over the top for our taste, and did not seem particularly Victorian. However they are spacious and comfortable.

Access is via a flight of steps on the outside of the back of the house. This is not mentioned in the pre-booking information and could cause problems for those with limited mobility. Some of the locks were temperamental at times, one of them most of the time.

The car parking for only two cars is less of a problem than some might think. We only used a car on a couple of days in the week we were there and mostly used the ones at the house. There was so much to do without using the car that we did not mind. There is free parking nearby from 6pm to 9am which is useful for getting the car close by for going home, and free parking about 10 minutes walk away at the end of the disc parking zone.

Unbelievably luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Cosy, luxurious chalet with the best views in Scarborough. Just a short walk from town, amusements and the beach with plenty of places to east to suit any budget. Four of the five bedrooms are en-suite and the place is lovely and warm, even in winter. Couldn't ask for anything better.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with 5 big bedrooms, all with own bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen and dining area, lounge on the smaller side for the size of the house. We had a family holiday here, 8 adults, 2 10 year olds, and one baby along with 3 dogs. Everyone had a brilliant time. There was only parking for 2 cars so be prepared to pay for parking if more than this. Few minutes walk down to the large sandy beach and into the town centre. Only used the car once to go to Whitby as everything was easily accessible. No garden as such for the dogs but plenty of areas nearby to take them out to. Wonderful sea views and of the south bay area of Scarborough. Would highly recommend and we hope to return next year.

The position of the chalet is second to none.

Chalet with a beautiful view.

This is the second time we have stayed in the chalet. The facilities in the chalet and local amenities are excellent. Would recommend anyone to stay.

You must try this!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, lovely house for a family get together -it features a great mix of the unusual and comfortable. Lots of space to spend time together, or apart, and very well equipped- all you should need is toiletries and a beach towel. We enjoyed the ever changing view from this fantastic location. If you enjoy staying here you would probably appreciate these too, all just a few minutes walk from the chalet - the putting green at the end of the Esplanade and Cafe Francis on the way back, Art Gallery and Woodend just over the foot bridge, and the morning concerts in the Spa Sun Court. Would love to stay here again with family or friends, any time of year.
