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.

About Ryk Dickinson

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.

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

I wouldn't hesitate to book this property again. I stayed for the weekend with 10 other ladies and we were all so impressed! The house is gorgeous and beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need, the photos don't do it justice. Ryk was so helpful with local knowledge and we were made to feel so welcome! The house is well placed with town, bars, restaurants and the beach all within easy walking distance. A fantastic weekend with lovely memories made! Thank you for sharing your lovely property with us!

Perfect house, tastefully decorated. Brilliant for large grouos

  • 5 of 5

We took my parents to Scarborough for Mum to show us her roots! Castle View made our stay brilliant with loads of space and everything you could want from a house. Comfy beds, lovely showers, huge table for us all to eat at, cosy lounge and an Xbox to keep the kids happy :) Ryk was helpful from the start of my booking process right up until we left. Attention to detail, faultless. Go and stay with your friends or family, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Ryk.

What a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't of asked for anything better. We were totally blown away by the excellent quality of every aspect of the property. The extra touches made it such a special stay. The children loved the giant christmas tree and decorations. Each bathroom was wonderful and uniquely decorated and a joy to use. Every bed comfy and inviting every room the same excellent standard.

Perfect for several families to come together to celebrate or just holiday together. Because of the layout everyone had space could be separate or together when needed. When we can get together again we will deffinately be back.

Beautiful house, central location

  • 5 of 5

We were a a group of 7 adults, 4 children aged 2-5yrs and a baby. This was the perfect house for our annual get together. Bargain! Lots of rooms (over lots of floors), 2 were triples which helped with the toddler and baby, lots of fridge space, enough bathrooms, a utility with washer and dryer. Literally 100yards from the town centre and the Weatherpoons. Owner kindly supplied extra parking permits. In the end, we only had to pay for a couple of days parking on one car. Spent a lot of time at Scarborough beach front, went to the sea life, also went to Filey and Whitby. Lots that we didn't get round to doing. Highly recommend for a gathering of family and friends!
