You’ll love the wonderful sea and castle views from this stylish, imposing 3-bedroom detached house.

Plenty of private on-site parking, and only five minutes’ walk to the clean, sandy beach, the Open Air Theatre and Peasholm Park….. and just across the road from the big new Waterpark and public transport into town or the open top buses round Marine Drive..

The approach to The Beach House is up a wide sloping drive (no gate at the bottom). There’s private parking here for 2 or 3 cars.

You enter the property from the parking area through an inviting conservatory. Next to this is the kitchen – well-equipped with dishwasher, toaster, microwave, electric cooker and hob, washing machine, fridge/freezer, a second fridge/ice box, clothes airer and iron with board.

The hallway off the kitchen gives access to the stairs, the lounge and the adjacent dining room.

Occupying the south-eastern corner of the house and with wide picture windows is the gorgeous lounge. Here you have three sofas, bean bag, coffee tables and fireplace with electric fire, TV, DVD player, CD player, digital radio and great armchair views of the sea, castle and the castle headland.

Next to the lounge, and with similar scenic views, is the separate dining room with table and chairs for six.

Also on the ground floor is a useful cloak room with WC and hand washbasin. This area is ideal for hanging and storing outdoor gear.

Upstairs are three good-sized bedrooms and the main bathroom.

Two of the bedrooms sit at the front of the house and have enchanting sea and castle views.
The master bedroom is a delightful large room with a SuperKing-size 4-poster bed.
The second front room is equally spacious and is a lovely double with windows at the south-east corner framing the glorious views.
The third bedroom is a charming twin-bedded room with garden views.
All bedrooms are tastefully furnished with wardrobe, hanging space, bedside cabinets and drawers.

The upstairs bathroom has a bath with electric shower over, basin and WC.

Fab’ retro’ touches remind you of the property’s 1950’s origins ….there’s even a hint of mid-20th-Century Hollywood glamour.

The Beach House is a substantial, welcoming seaside house offering lots of privacy that would suit a 3 generation family or 2 couples.


There’s a choice of places to sit with paved garden softened by mature shrubs… and outdoor furniture is provided.

What’s provided?

Central heating, bed linen, tea-towels……but please bring your own personal hand, bath and beach towels.

Free WiFi. You would have to supply your own cot and high chair.


Sorry no pets allowed.

Scarborough Open Air Theatre – entrance a few hundred yards away – is the venue for a variety of top artists throughout the summer months.

Peasholm Park is a delight at all times of year. Oriental themed, beautifully tended parkland with a boating lake, woodland pathways and water features. It’s an ideal setting for events and attractions throughout the year. Visitors enjoy open air cinema, fireworks displays and concerts or just a morning stroll and a snack at the cafe…. or an evening walk around the lake illuminated by twinkling coloured lights.

The North Bay Promenade and Mini Railway are just down the road.

Scarborough Sea Life Centre is within a mile.

Near Peasholm Corner (see map) are the Blue Crush Bar and the Watermark Cafe / music venue.

Scarborough new £14m attraction Alpamare Waterpark with multiple pools, fantastic slides, splash and wave areas is just 2 minutes’ walk away. It’s not just for kids…. it’s open all year and offers spa treatments, a sauna, massage jets and whirlpool. Why not visit in the evening and relax in the luxury heated (35 degree) outdoor pools. There’s also an on-site cafe. The Waterpark is open 10am – 10pm (9pm Sundays)

The North Bay (which you can see from Beach House) has a Blue Flag beach and is a haven for surfers and jet skiers…

Marine Drive (see map below) is a popular spot for fishermen to cast their lines……and where holidaymakers scan the sea for Harbour Porpoise and Minke whale.

There are good pubs serving food and a range of cafes, restaurants and take-aways.

Frequent public transport (including open-top buses) from Peasholm Corner to the Town Centre and South Bay beach. … it’s cheap and only a few minutes scenic journey around Royal Albert Drive/Marine Drive to the South Bay Foreshore (the traditional centre with amusement arcades, seafood kiosks and fairground rides) ….. and beyond that to the beautiful Victorian Spa Theatre and Conference Complex. Above the Spa Theatre is the Esplanade and Scarborough’s South Cliff area.
