Northern England region

Scarborough is only an hour from the historic town of York and is a great base from which to visit the quaint fishing port of Whitby and other attractive coastal villages and towns like Robin Hoods Bay, Filey and Bridlington. The town is on the fringe of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with many beautiful walks within easy reach.

Scarborough, Yorkshire

SCARBOROUGH is rightly called 'QUEEN OF THE YORKSHIRE COAST' and was Britain's first ever seaside resort. Overlooking the North and South bays with their sandy beaches stands Scarborough's historic castle. The town is home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays

"A lovely house, in a great location for a seaside getaway."

I recently booked Kings House for a reunion of friends from my university days, we were looking for somewhere close enough to the town centre and sea front for trips out but nice enough to stay and ca… More

"Great house, well equipped and perfect location for us"

We had a lovely stay in Scarborough, the house was in a perfect location for us as we were attending a conference at the Spa which is just a few minutes walk. The bedrooms were all nice and its on a quiet road so not much traffic noise. The reception rooms were all lovely too and the kitchen very well equipped.
The only complaint we had is that we would have appreciated a full sized dishwasher rather than a half sized one.

"Imposing and elegant with capacity to spare"

As imposing on the outside as it is elegant on the inside, this capacious townhouse manages to be both uncluttered and modern, yet warm and welcoming. Perhaps this was down to the huge kitchen which comfortably accommodated 8-10 for breakfast, especially with the back door open enabling people to wander in and out to the equally accommodating back garden with its diverse seating and dining arrangements. Or, perhaps it was the owner's happy knack of providing artwork for everyone but without disturbing the overall aesthetic. A superbly appointed playroom for the children, a dining/ living space for eating and lounging, a grand TV room to escape the throng, even a library with books a cut above the usual holiday crime thriller fare, this is a designer/boutique guesthouse to savour. Downside: the noise from the macerator in the downstairs loo. Surely that can be fixed!

"Wonderful, well-appointed house in a great location."

We stayed at Kings House as an extended family group aging from teens to eighties. We had a lovely stay and all the family really enjoyed both the house and Scarborough. The house was wonderful, a real gem with plenty of accommodation for all the family on four floors, a good sized kitchen, a dining room that accommodated the whole group - we had lively evening meals around the table - and several sitting rooms (with books and games for all). The outdoor patio areas at the back were lovely for breakfast and the occasional BBQ. The only problem was trying to work out where everyone was!

Despite packing maps & guides of the coast & moors we didn't actually leave Scarborough for the whole week (we had great weather). With the exception of the cases where we drove an elderly parent or for shopping we didn't use our cars either! We'd forgotten how much variety there was in Scarborough with the two beaches, castle, many parks and gardens, town centre shops, views etc. The house was well-located for all of these being on a quiet leafy street but only a few hundred metres from the south cliff.

We were a family group of 8 ranging in age from 1 to 60+ so we had plenty of room over the four floors. This house was chosen by the family rewiewing various web sites and deciding on this one. We wer… More

"Get house, grest location"

We stopped at kings house in June 14, there were 6 adults and 3 children, we had plenty of space and the décor was lovely, would recommend for large groups as there is a lot of space over the 4 floors, there are quite a lot of steps which keep you fit.

"A fabulous, comfortable, elegant house"

11 friends and I stayed in this 6 double bedroom house. It was everything we could wish for: comfortable, clean, well equipped, spacious, near to the beach and the shops. Because it has 4 reception rooms, there is no sense of being on top of one another, but at the same time the kitchen and two of the sitting rooms are plenty big enough for everyone to be in at the same time (without sitting on one ach others' knees!).

"An Outstanding House."

A very well equipped luxurious house. Plenty of space, that easily provided for my party of 12 adults. The level of service was outstanding and we were made very welcome. I would have no problems with recommending this house to everyone.
