Lovely and cosy with everything nearby

5 of 5
Very affordable and with everything nearby that we needed. The owners were really cool and let us check out late which gave us a longer holiday. Thank you

Best views in Scarborough!

4 of 5
The chalet has a really fantastic position with wonderful views around the bay, with the weather conditions, the tides, and the activity on the beach, in the sea, and in and out of the harbour constantly changing. Being in the centre of Scarborough means that it is very easy to find plenty to do without ever getting in the car, which is a bonus. Although a bit of gawping by passers-by can be expected, this is not intrusive as from the house they can't be seen. The house is currently up for sale and gives the impression that a certain amount of maintenance is due. A historic property of this kind, by the sea, cannot be easy to maintain. The living rooms are comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped (though one really big pan would have been useful, and the microwave appeared not to work - it did, but couldn't be set).The décor in bedrooms and bathrooms was a bit over the top for our taste, and did not seem particularly Victorian. However they are spacious and comfortable. Access is via a flight of steps on the outside of the back of the house. This is not mentioned in the pre-booking information and could cause problems for those with limited mobility. Some of the locks were temperamental at times, one of them most of the time. The car parking for only two cars is less of a problem than some might think. We only used a car on a couple of days in the week we were there and mostly used the ones at the house. There was so much to do without using the car that we did not mind. There is free parking nearby from 6pm to 9am which is useful for getting the car close by for going home, and free parking about 10 minutes walk away at the end of the disc parking zone.
