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.
South cliff, which is the location of this property is 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 (one minute walk from apartment) 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 pantomime.
The town is only a ten minute stroll over the spa bridge, and not forgetting the original 'clock cafe' which overlooks the sea, 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 everything you need within a short walking distance, including two well known mini marts, hotel bars, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, night club etc, all located on the Ramshill shopping area.

"Clean, quiet comfortable place to stay."
2nd floor, but small lift gave good access if you have problems with stairs. Quiet area, parking on road with scratch cards pre-paid within the rent. Linen provided, but no towels! Except two small t… More
Again, many thanks for this review and so happy you had a nice time in our accommodation. I do say in my advert that towels are not included, hope that was an over-site on your behalf. Regards Sue & Dave

"Ideal holiday apartment"
We spent an enjoyable weekend in March at this apartment, which we found to be well equipped, clean, warm and very comfortable. The location is good, just a short stroll from the sea front, shops and … More
Thanks for your kind comments, and for leaving the apartment in a nice condition ready for cleaning to our high standard, hope next time I may be able to get my head around making the card payments possible. I am having broadband installed very soon as well as this is such a popular holiday venue. Thanks again Sue x

"a superb seaside stay!"
The flat was clean, spacious, warm, and well kitted out with all we needed. Not much of a sea view, but 2 mins walk to the lift down to the beach, so definitely a handy spot. A great family holiday lo… More
Thanks for your lovely review to add to my other great ones. Year on year we try to make little improvements to the comfort of our guests old and new, this year was installing WiFi which has been a huge success and improved my bookings all round as such a home from home experience, I know I would be lost without internet, hope to do the same with my other town centre apartments for next season, regards Sue & Dave

Very nice apartment very clean with all mod cons,i only have one disapoitment and that is parking.We got there at 3.30 but could not find a parking space i had to park around the corner until at least… More
Hi Neil, thank you for your lovely comments, sorry about the parking it can get quite full on the actual street in peak season, but the scratch cards are for several streets adjacent to 'Esplanade Gardens' and cant always guarantee a space near the flat, I can usually get parked up very close when we come around 10.15am but the later in the day more spaces would be taken, maybe you could try and come at the earlier time of 11.55am which is offered and more likely to get parked up nearer to the flat. This is a very popular apartment and there are some hotels on the street which are quite busy and all in all not everyone can get parked on this one street, so the scratch cards cater for parking on the other streets close by. Hope to see you again next year and will give the same excellent service and cleanliness which we pride ourselves on. Thanks Sue & Dave.

"I must go down to the sea again ..."
We have just returned from our 4th stay in this flat and have already booked for next year to avoid disappointment. The flat is ideally located and we've had, as usual, a great holiday. It is well furnished and very comfortable and we really enjoy staying there.
It was very clean when we arrived and everything was ready for us.
The lift is a great bonus for getting luggage upstairs and was a benefit for my elderly mother who stayed as well. She used the downstairs bedroom that is attached to the flat so was able to have her own separate space.
I guarantee you will have a great holiday if you stay here.
Thank you Norma for the lovely feedback again, its a pleasure to see you coming back each year, going to deffo get the broadband installed later this year ready for the new season, see you in June :)

WOW, thank you so much, I have some really fantastic feedback on this apartment both in my visitors book and placed on 'trip advisor' since I opened this flat in 2009 being our fifth season and this really does put everything in a nutshell, we are constantly thinking of ways to improve and know that broadband is one aspect that we need to address in the future when economics allow for this to happen, so again thank you so much and will help to make future visitors feel confident to know that they will be secure in the knowledge of past wonderful comments made by yourself and past guests and to place a booking. Regards Sue and Dave x

"Very spacious apartment and very well equipped, spotlessly clean."
The apartment was lovely, very spacious and well equipped and in a perfect location. It was one of the cleanest we've ever been in to. However, there were some disappointments - I felt very hassled as to the time of our arrival and given that we were travelling from London on a very wet and windy day and the M1 was very slow, it was almost impossible to say what exact time we would arrive but that didn't seem to be appreciated. Also, there was not a grain of sugar, not a teabag, not a square of toliet paper which I found most disappointing. We do these type of lets on a regualr basis and I have never had to go out and buy toilet paper before we could use the bathroom! I did however leave some behind for the next guest which is the traditional thing to do!
Thank you for your review and pleased that you found our accommodation very clean & comfortable, I am sorry about having to contact you several times on an update of your ETA which is normal for us if you cant meet the usual time of 3pm and in the summer high season we nearly always offer the visitor the chance of getting in at 12 noon if they can arrive for that time, and the majority do and are highly delighted we can give that opportunity. In your case with the weather we did appreciate the roads may be slower but in all you were very late with your estimations and to save waiting around we always contact for updates, the late arrival is irrelevant as some who fly into the UK have come as late as Midnight so we are very flexible. I'm sorry about the toilet roll this was overlooked and as you did not complain we were non the wiser about this 'disappointment'. Overall we always try to please our guests and in earnest the previous excellent reviews shows this, and we will continue to provide our high standard of service and cleanliness on all our accommodation. Sue & Dave

I would absolutely recommend this flat as a very comfortable and well situated base to stay in Scarborough. It is ideally located; just a short walk from the Esplanade and the lift down to the Spa and the Clock Cafe. Also it is an easy walk into town, so you can avoid parking fees. The flat itself was very clean, warm, comfortable and well equipped; a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. Particularly pleasing were the very comfortable beds and we enjoyed having T.V.s in every room. Couldn't fault it at all!

"Extremely comfortable, clean and warm."
The apartment was larger than we expected, plenty of room for a family, and was well equipped. Very clean, comfortable, and warm. It was in a good position, easy to walk down to the sea front, and very pleasant outlook. There is a small lift up to the apartment, so no need to take the stairs and we always managed to find a parking space along the street but not always just outside. We would like to stay here again when visiting Scarborough.
