About the property

Kings House is a Grade II Listed Townhouse with 6 double bedrooms (3 double and 3 twin rooms) and 4 bathrooms with a large contemporary kitchen, separate dining room with seating area and table for up to 12, sitting room and a separate playroom/snug. Secure patio garden with raised seating area and table for 8, bench and small further table, 2 chairs and barbeque. House overlooks a small green. Guest parking permits for visitors who can park outside on a first come first served basis. Railway station is only a 5-10 minute walk away. House is close to several pubs, shops and restaurants and a short walk to the town centre, foreshore, Rotunda Museum and Stephen Joseph Theatre. Popular fishing village of Whitby is a 30 minute drive and the historic town of York an hour away. Beautiful North Yorks Moors National Park with great walks and scenery is on the edge of Scarborough itself. Crown Spa Hotel is 3 minutes' away and offers full spa facilities, massage etc - perfect for a ladies' pampering session. The house is not suitable for hen or stag groups. Our changeover day is generally Friday (and we cannot be flexible on this in school holidays) so unfortunately any request for a 7 night booking to start on a Saturday for example is likely to be declined.

About Anne Goode

Though from Scarborough I now live in London but get back to the area often as we now own 3 holiday properties on the North Yorkshire coast. Scarborough is a wonderful town which has beautiful beaches as well as being on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

Anne Goode purchased this house in 2010

Why Anne Goode chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

Though Ian is a Southerner born and bred, like me he's come to love Scarborough which offers everything you could wish for: great beaches and coastal walks, proximity to some fabulous countryside, lots of entertainment and the genuine friendliness of Yorkshire people. We wanted a character property in the town and believe we've found the perfect house which has plenty of space for people to holiday together but also have their own space. It's great to be able to walk to most places and not take the car out when you're on holiday and Scarborough now has some excellent restaurants as well as the world famous Stephen Joseph Theatre (where Alan Ayckbourn premières all his plays). a bustling harbour and small marina, some lovely golf courses and now, even Europe's largest Open Air Theatre.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful early Victorian house, well appointed and freshly decorated. Generous hosts, with things like car-parking, loo rolls, washing up liquid, tea towels etc. provided (this is very unusual). The house is arranged over 4 floors, so it keeps you fit and ready to deal with Scarborough’s steep hills and vertiginous steps. Over the past 20 odd years, this is one of the best houses we have rented. Jan 2012.

Excellent Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

6 Adults, 5 Kids and a Dog. Family reunion to celebrate a Birthday. Layout of House allows all to gather together or do their own thing as well. Standard of fixtures and fittings was superb with plenty of essentials supplied. Scarborough has lots to keep all ages entertained. Great communications and service from Anne the owner. Would definitely return.

Kings House Scarborough.

  • 5 of 5

Kings house was just perfect and would highly recommend it. The decor was first class and a big plus was having all the shower and toilet facilities. Ideal for families and friends. The owner was so friendly and helpful.

Amazing house, great position. Well equipped and so spacious, even better than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

Booked for 12 (10 in the end) friends to celebrate a 60th. Couldn't have chosen better. Even the weather was fab for autumn.

The only negative was that we had emailed and booked Tricolore Italian for the Saturday, months ago, however when my friend rang to double check, they claimed to have no booking, even though she had a confirmation email. We won't be going to that restaurant again!!

Definitely recommend the property for large groups who want to have excellent accommodation

Spacious, homely and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our experience couldn't have been better. From booking this property, communication from Anne was always quick, clear and friendly.

We stayed at this property for a family weekend away, no car journeys and to just have fun together. This property more than accommodated that. Only a few minutes walk to the seafront, Tesco's and a yummy chippy!

We arrived, parked easily and the property was clean and welcoming. There was plenty of room for us to socialise in the kitchen/living areas but also room for the children to play separately.

This house is on 4 floors so if any of your party has difficulty with steps, this probably won't be the holiday home for you, but for us it was perfect! Thank you Anne

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review and I'm delighted you had such a nice stay at the house. As you say it is in a very convenient location - just a few minutes to the beach but also only a few minutes walk from the centre of town and the railway station, shops, cafes, pubs etc so perfect if you don't want to be driving very much.
