Overview & description
This well-appointed bungalow has a brand-new kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oven, hob and extractor... and all the usual utensils and equipment you would expect in a quality self-catering property. The kitchen has lovely sea, rural and Scarborough views.
You have a welcoming lounge with plenty of comfortable seating, flat-screen TV with integral DVD player, coffee table, lamps and an electric fire, and large patio doors giving great armchair sea views across the bay, to Scarborough.
Lots of books, games and DVDs are available to keep you entertained on an evening in... . or to while away the hours on a rainy day.
Through a sliding patio door, the lounge opens onto a large private deck. Here you have magnificent panoramic views out to sea, open fields and Scarborough's South Bay.... on a clear day you can see as far as the horizon where the North York Moors meet the sky.
To the rear of the lounge a small hall gives access the bathroom and bedrooms.
The bathroom has a WC, hand washbasin and an electric shower over the bath, all heated by a large towel warmer and fan heater. A nice big airing cupboard gives storage space for toiletries and towels.
Two tastefully-furnished bedrooms complete the accommodation.
Each bedroom offers far-reaching views beyond Cayton Bay to Bempton Cliffs and the Yorkshire Wolds.
The inviting master bedroom has a double bedstead and feels bright and spacious because of the large mirrored wardrobes. In this bedroom you have a wall-mounted TV with integral DVD player, chest of drawers, bedside cabinets and reading lamps.. The second bedroom offers a single bed with full-size high-quality guest bed beneath, so this room can be adapted to sleep either 1 or 2 guests. This bedroom also has hanging space, drawers, bedside cabinet and reading lamps.
The entrance hall has coat hooks and storage space for shoes and opens to the kitchen and lounge.
This is a cosy and warm bungalow, with heating by way of modern electric background heaters and additional instant heaters (if required).
Off the lounge, you have a private deck and a lower grassed area. Complete with garden furniture this is a wonderful place to sit out and take in the ever-changing coastal and countryside scenery. The garden is bounded by a low stone wall and fencing, and has a gate allowing direct access to the Cleveland Way which follows the coast along cliff-tops to Scarborough and beyond.
Enjoy the unobstructed 180 degree view taking in open fields, Oliver's Mount, the Grand Hotel, Scarborough Castle and a wide expanse of sea.
The communal gardens of Knipe Point are beautifully tended and have won a Gold Award for their design and colour. With paved paths and seating it's the perfect setting for a morning stroll or for sitting and enjoying the breath-taking sea views. The Carp pond and trickling waterfall in the centre of the grounds make a lovely focal point.
Bed-linen is provided free and there are no charges for utilities or parking.
Hand and tea-towels are provided but kindly bring your personal bath and beach towels.

Across the bay from Scarborough, on a headland separating Cayton Bay from Cornelian Bay... just off the old Filey to Scarborough Coast Road approximately 2 miles south of Scarborough Town Centre and 4 miles north of Filey.
Deer and other wildlife often venture into the gardens from the adjoining National Trust woodland.
From the garden you can access the Cleveland Way - which follows the cliff tops all the way into Scarborough...or the woodland paths leading steeply down to Cayton Bay beach...(see notes below).
There's a pizza take-away, and a hair salon a few hundred yards away. The local pub is 10 -15 mins walk away. Post Office & Fish & Chips are 1 mile distant at Cayton Village or Eastfield. A Supermarket (24-hour Tesco) can be found just before you reach Scarborough Centre about 1 3/4 miles north.
Nearest pub, The Poacher's Barn (which serves food every day) is about 3/4 mile away in Osgodby (zoom in on map below).
NOTE: ONLY ADULTS ALLOWED.
ACCESS. The path from the drive is level. You enter the bungalow by a side door up 2 quite deep steps, but there is a grab rail. There's another shallow step from the lounge down to the deck. The interior of the accommodation is all level but the doorways are not wide enough to allow a wheelchair. There are no grab rails inside.
The paths to the beach are steep in places and can be slippery in wet weather...but there is an alternative surfaced path/steps to Cayton Bay only 1/4 mile further down the coast.
Regular buses run into Town from a bus-stop a few hundred yards away... or there is a Park & Ride about 1/2 mile away.
