Northern England region
Scarborough is the UK's first official holiday seaside resort, which is the largest on the Yorkshire dinosaur Coast, and is set in the beautiful north Yorkshire moors, from which you can tour around to all of the little villages and places of interest of which there are too many to list.
Only a few miles by car to Whitby in Goathland heartbeat country. Originally an early medieval settlement, and has the ruins of an 11th century Castle sitting on top of a very rocky headland, which is surrounded by the north and south bays of Scarborough.
The small resort of Filey only a short car journey away, and Bridlington about 18 miles down the coast. The city of York is a mere 40 miles away, with 'flamingo land' zoo and theme park which is very close to market town of Pickering which is only about 18 miles drive.
I could write lots more about this whole area with its outstanding natural beauty, but the best and most exiting way is to just come and explore for yourself. In all the years I have lived here the climate has never been too harsh in the winter, mild and sunny spring, and nice warm summers reaching up to 27c, which makes it an all year round experience, and has something to offer everyone from the very young to the old.
Scarborough is an absolutely beautiful place to choose a family holiday, originally a little fishing town which still has a lovely harbour which has been regenerated to a good standard including modern pontoons.
This area is known as the old town which is very popular for tourists with a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants, amusements. The town is still growing with lots of well known high street shops, designer boutiques, and a good shopping mall ' The Brunwick Centre' with between 35-40 retail outlets, good if the weather changes.
The night-life is something else, quite funky and upbeat with a great selection of trendy bars, and nightclubs to dance the night away.
Over the bridge is the lovely South cliff, a very grand area which is steeped in Victorian history with its beautiful architecture, and award winning 'Italian gardens', funicular cliff lift which takes you directly down to the beach and Spa Complex which does a variety of events, famously including the popular open-air orchestral concerts, rock bands, and not forgetting the good old pantomine, there is the original 'clock cafe' which overlooks the sea selling a good selection of snacks and cakes etc, there is an abundance of little pathways which wind down to the beach, and lots of seating to enjoy the wonderful views of the sea and south bay. South cliff has lots to offer including two well known mini marts, hotel bars, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, night club etc, all located on the Ramshill shopping area, not forgetting the best pork pies in Scarborough to be had.

About The Appartment:We are extremely happy with our stay here. To be perfectly honest, I wasn't expecting much because I'm a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for' and this a… More
WoW, yours deffo is the longest review i'v had before lol. Thank you for this brilliant review and hey presto....we are ordering broadband UNLIMITED internet WiFi in the next couple of months ready for the new season 2015, we have just ordered it for the flat on the same crescent and is being installed on the 18th Septemeber, so this will enhance the 'home from home' experience in the lovely apartment of which we are very proud of the standard of service and cleanliness we provide and will continue to improve what we can each year. About Scarborough, well I must defend my lovely town, although I am from the city of Leeds, I have never lost my enthusiasm for this beautiful part of the North Yorkshire area and all its glory surrounding it with just a short car ride away, you have Whitby for a start, Filey is very popular but also we as the first resort do try to keep its traditional family atmosphere, yes we do need a multiplex cinema and plans are afoot for one in town and at the yet unfinished north side project which will also host a large indoor water park and I believe this will come as already started developing the very large site that was Mr Marvels etc. About the eating experiences you mention, I would NEVER eat fish and chips from the sea front yuk, you should have tried Wackers, Mother Hubbards and Silks....perfect in every way top quality, NO burger king but we do have McDonalds and Pizza Hut, and plans just passed for a large KFC on the same road as both of them in centre of town, also a first class carvery at Scalby Manor at under £4.65 eat as much as you like and the breakfasts six days a week, Sunday is £6.95 adults but you can take one child free for every adult eating, Florios authentic Italian on Aberdeen walk only 5 mins walk 'happy hour' at around £5 for the main meal, I could go on and on but we are a growing town and in all of the 31 yrs of coming to live here, I can say hand on heart that there is improvement every year I have lived here, yes more is needed and the Councillors need to speed up the planning process, but something must be right as I have my regular guests that keep coming back to me, especially our beautiful 'Esplanade Sea View' apartment also with FREE unlimited broadband installed. I really hope to see you come again in the future and you may see some improvement and eat at better places. Regards Sue & Dave :)

"Would definitely recommend"
Castle Haven provided everything my wife and I wanted , it was spacious , close to the shopping area/amenities , quiet and well looked after . Further to what I have already said it is safe to say thi… More
We are really looking forward to you coming again, and it gives us such pleasure to know that we have given you our best service and level of cleanliness. This block has mainly 'hand picked' tenants that compliment the building, we converted this in 2009 up to top speck standard with building control, costing a small fortune. I could do the whole five flats on a holiday basis but we have 4 venues and this is enough for us to concentrate on and give a personal service to all our new and returning guests. Thanks for your lovely reviews, kindest regards Sue & Dave x

Oh, that is so lovely, thank you for this wonderful review, its been a pleasure to have such a nice family staying and helping to make memories....especially your honeymoon ones, the picture you took the trouble to lay out all of your cards and flowers and all the family in it was great and imaginative. Dave and I love this part of the business as you get a lot of satisfaction knowing that you have given your best to each and every visitor that arrives, its very important to us knowing the level of service and cleanliness especially is to a good standard, which is why we have so many repeat bookings. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future, regards Sue & Dave xx

"Met all our expectations....and more!"
This was our first visit to Scarborough and it took us ages to decide on somewhere to stay, that will not be a problem again, as we hope to always be able to get in at Castle Haven! It was perfect! Th… More
Oh Craig & family, thank you so much for this wonderful review, this makes it all more worthwhile going that extra bit for our guests, and you left the apartment lovely ready for us to start our changeover. We are very proud of this flat in particular, as it was originally my sisters flat before she died and hence the name 'Castle Haven' as you can see the castle and twas her Haven....she loved it there and moved in when it was a new conversion in 2009, so is well insulated and sound proofed up to current high building regs. We own the whole block, but only this one is for holidays and is the best one. We really hope to see you all again in the future as we do have regulars already coming back over these last 3 seasons of opening. Thanks again, Sue & Dave (at your service) x

"Great value apartment"
The apartment was spotless and well equipped. We did have doubts about the bed settee but needn't have worried as it is surprisingly comfortable. Although it was on street parking we had no probl… More
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, this apartment is a lovely 'Haven' hence the title as you can see the castle from the flat, in a very quiet building in a traditional Victorian crescent of terrace houses over looking the 'green' hope you may come again, hoping to install WiFi next year.

The appartment is very close to the train station and the main shopping street, and a 10min walk to the beach. It's spacious, clean, and well-maintained. However, the couple of times I've re… More

"Excellent stay in Scarborough"
If you are thinking of staying at this holiday flat we would strongly recommend it, it is lovely, it has everything you need, total home from home.
When we first arrived we were welcomed by Dave who showed us around and let us know if we ever needed him or Sue then just phone nothng was a problem, found them both very pleasent.
Flat is decorated lovely and all looks very new, kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, bathroom very clean and spacious, bedroom has comfy double and single beds and loads of storage and living room lovely with comfy sofas tv dvd and playstation with a variety of games.
We were there for the week and found it to be totally central to everything, train station less than 5 mins away and shopping centre and high street literally 1 min down small hill with the seafront of the south beach about 10 mins away.
North beach and peasholm park about a 15 min walk.
We would strongly recommend this place to stay and it won't be long til we are booking again.
Thanks so much sue

"Home from home, relaxing stay with family"
Castle Haven is just fantastic. We have stayed here before and will continue to do so. Spacious accommodation. We were delighted to see a TV is now in the bedroom as well. Cleanliness is of a very high standard. Lovely and warm flat, very cosy if the evenings turn a bit cooler. Just a short walk to the shopping centre, very convenient. Everything you need virtually on your doorstep. We, as a family, have been holidaying in Scarborough for the past 14 years and found Castle Haven in 2010. It is THE best place to stay in Scarborough and believe me, I have stayed in many over the years. Already looking to book again !!!! Sue is so helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble.
Oh thank you so much Sarah for your lovely review, it has been an absolute pleasure having booked with us three times, hopefully many more to come. I must say you leave the apartment so nice ready for us to keep our high standard of cleanliness which is most important to us. We will try and make more improvements year on year if we can and glad you liked the new TV with built in DVD, we are considering broadband in the future. I am so grateful for your review to help others make a great choice. Sue and Dave x
