About Mrs Anne Bates

We are a family of four who originally visited Scarborough to visit family and now consider it our second home.

Mrs Anne Bates purchased this house in 2011

Why Mrs Anne Bates chose Scarborough

We are a family of four who originally came to Scarborough to visit family and now after over twenty years, consider it our second home.

We particularly love Scarborough and the Yorkshire area because of the vast array of things to do and see. Whether a quite time rambling across the countryside and coastal paths or a busier time in the towns and villages.

When our children were younger they particularly loved the traditional seaside activities which Scarborough provides.

What makes this house unique

The Perks is very close to the beach and not far from the town centre. There are plenty of places to eat and things to entertain families of all ages!

The house has all the comforts of home. Spacious to allow me time, prime location, beautiful secure established garden, comfy beds, I will definitely return with the kids, they loved all the fun packed amenities. Even a mobility scooter should you need the use of one! Sea views from rear bedrooms, I cannot think of one negative.
