The Castle by the Sea

B&B, Guest House or Inn


The Castle By The Sea is a wonderfully characteristic property overlooking both the South and North Bays in Scarborough. The property offers many historic and interesting features, including the oak entrance door and dado rail, originally from the vestry at St. Anne's R.C. Cathedral in Leeds.

John Atkinson Grimshaw, who is without question, the most important artist to have lived and painted in Scarborough, resided here between 1876 and 1879, and the dining room has a superb carved mantle, and wonderful hand painted tiles in its surround, which were designed by Grimshaw himself.

All bedrooms offer spacious en-suite facilities and very high quality comfortable beds, as well as colour TV's and tea and coffee making facilities.

Separate tables are provided in the unusually spacious dining room where you can partake in the delights of good home cooking prepared using the finest quality produce from around the area for breakfast and evening meal.
Refreshments can also be taken in the conservatory or on those splendid sunny days take your refreshments out on the roof top terrace and take in the beautiful Scarborough sea views.
From our comfortable residents bar lounge you can obtain wonderful views over the North Bay in all its changing moods and enjoy a quiet drink and relax in the company of new friends after a busy day.

Anne Bronte's grave can be found within a 2 minute walk, situated in the graveyard at St. Mary's Church. Scarborough Castle is also just at the rear of the property, and both the North/South Bays and Harbour are within easy access. Other local attractions include the North Bay Miniature Railway, Sealife Centre, Peasholm Park Boating Lake, Scarborough Indoor Bowls Centre, Scarborough Indoor Swimming Pool and Playzone.
