The Flower in Hand
About the home
'The Flower in Hand' is over 200 year's old and steeped in history. It was once a public house which was popular with local seafarers and renowned for its commanding position looking out to sea. Later, it was converted to a prestigious private residence for one of Scarborough's oldest sea fishing families.
Today, after extensive refurbishment, you will find that his large property offers a wealth of features and a welcome feeling of space, combined with every modern day facility you may need. The interior has been carefully modernised to provide luxury accommodation which can be enjoyed by families or large groups of friends. The unique position provides panoramic sea views from every room in the house and there are two private terraces which are ideal for relaxing in the sun, enjoying a quiet drink or al fresco dining.
The harbour, promenade and beach are literally just a few minutes walk away. There's also many restaurants, shops and leisure facilities nearby. So, you'll soon find that there is so much you can do!
