Beautiful Large Victorian Town House Situated In The Centre Of Scarborough



Updated: 23-Nov-2016
House in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England - Town Centre Location With All Amenities On The Doorstep. 10 Minutes Walk To Beaches, Pet Friendly

The property offers excellent accommodation, tucked away in a quiet crescent, just off the main shopping street of Scarborough. Lots of bars and restaurants are just a stone’s throw away and guests are not far away from the award-winning beaches and historic harbour.

Flamborough Head and RSPB Bempton Cliffs are just a 15-minute drive away, where guests can observe puffins, dolphins and seals in their natural habitat. The historic city of York is less than an hour’s drive away, or you can hop on the train and be there in 30 minutes. For those of you without transport, Castle View is a 2-minute walk from the main train station. With a wide range of places to visit, Castle View is the perfect holiday retreat. Beach ½ mile.

About the Owner

I live in a quiet village on the Yorkshire Wolds with my girlfriend and cat.

We love mountain biking in and around North Yorkshire are keen surfers and often indulge in a spot of jet ski fishing.

I have been a self employed property developer for the past ten years with a particular passion for period houses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There were 11 of us that stayed at castle view with an age range from 8 to 75. Everyone who went with us enjoyed it and couldn't speak more highly of the property.

On arrival at the property, there was a welcome pack, 2 cakes,a bottle of wine, and a welcome card from Rik. The table had a beautiful bouquet of lilies and the cleanliness is what struck me, it was immaculate not a speck of dust anywhere. Nice touches, it seems there is nothing they haven't thought of.

The beds are comfortable, the bedding is white so you know it's clean. There are towels supplied too.

The house itself is absolutely beautiful, the renovation has been done tastefully and for a holiday letting it is the by far best we have stayed in so far. The kitchen is well equipped and there is no equipment you need to take it is all supplied.

The rooms are all a good size, the bathrooms and showers are awesome!

The yard is small but enclosed and has a BBQ and a washing line that pulls out, there is a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room.

The location is very central, out of the front door it is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the north bay, turn right 2 minutes to the town centre and again 10 to 15 minute walk to the South Bay. So the location is superb as once your parked up unless you want to go out of Scarborough you can walk pretty much everywhere you want to go.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Scarborough.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Pictures of the house online does not do the house justice. On arrival everyone was so surprised by the size of the property, the rooms and the decor. The location was superb, as we did not need to use the car at all and all amenities and attractions was all within walking distance.

Was very impressed and the owner was a lovely person always on hand and always willing to help.

Would definitely stay again if opportunity arises.

Attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house and location is fantastic. Even the kitchen knives were sharp! Usually I dread cooking whilst away because of the blunt knives and limited cutlery however after commending Ryk on how impressed I was with the sharpness of the knives he told me he used to be a chef, that makes perfect sense! We were a group of friends who stayed here and I will definitely stay again and next time bring the family.

Lovely house, great location. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My book group wanted to visit the Scarborough Book Festival - we had a great weekend, Castle View is a lovely house, really comfy and luxurious. Ryk left us some supplies ( wine and cake 😀) and everything about the trip was perfect. Ryk was also very communicative with instructions, directions etc so everything was very easy.

Thanks for a memorable stay in Scarborough.

Lovely house, fantastic location and great beds!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house as a group of friends meeting up for the weekend with our young children. The space is amazing, decor period with a modern twist. Well thought out for a relaxing and luxury feel stay! The beds are the most comfortable I have slept on for some time (which was the view of all guests). It was so easy to walk down the road and into town with beach so close! All round a really enjoyable stay and the addition of wine and cake to greet us added a much appreciated personal touch!

All contact with Ryk was easy and clear. I'm sure we will be back!
