About the property

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

Castle View is a fine Victorian town house that has been completely renovated, keeping many of its beautiful period features, yet with a very contemporary feel. 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. The Stephen Joseph Theatre, famous for its world premieres of almost all of Alan Ayckbourn’s plays, is just around the corner. Scarborough is a perfect holiday base to visit the North Yorkshire Coast. Whitby, Bridlington and Filey are easy accessible by car, as well as the famous North Yorkshire Moors National Park, with its steam railway from Pickering to Whitby. 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. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards. Open fire in living room (initial fuel included). Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Cot. High chair. Two Freeview TVs. DVD. Xbox.

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!
