  • "Fantastic property!"

    ! Felt very comfortable there and was reluctant to leave. Loved being able to look out to sea, parking was a doddle and it was very peaceful. Too much to do in a week so unfortunately we have to go back

  • "Fabulous location, the sea view is wonderful."

    The apartment is kept to a really high standard, properly cleaned, you would hardly know people had been using it. I don't think the building is very old. It's only a short walk to the sea or into town. Lovely place to stay.

  • "Absolutely superb apartment, wonderful views over the South Bay and Scarborough, very clean and tidy, everything you need for a relaxing holiday, private parking and excellent security system was A+."

    The host very approachable nothing any trouble, would certainly recommend it to friends and family, and certainly wouldn’t be afraid to rebook on returning to Scarborough. Thank you for beautiful holiday.

  • "Perfect apartment!"

    We really enjoyed our stay and loved the sea view. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped and in a fantastic location. Having a designated parking space was very helpful. Would happily recommend to family and friends and we would definitely return to The Lookout if we come back to Scarborough.

  • "We had a lovely holiday at the Lookout."

    The apartment was extremely clean and was very well equipped. We appreciated the milk, Prosecco and tea bags that were left. The view from the balcony of the sea and Scarborough was great. It was a very comfortable apartment and we felt very much at home. A lovely relaxing week. Very peaceful and relaxing. A lot of time was spent on the balcony reading. The coastal path runs right in front of the apartment. We only went into Scarborough one evening but it was very busy and crowded.

  • "The Lookout was everything it was advertised to be, it was clean, well equipped and in a delightful position with fabulous sea views."

    If I had to find one small fault I would say to replace the place mats with some that could be laundered between guests, as there was what appeared to be sticky jam stuck between the fibres, but we washed it and all was okay. I would definitely rebook if I wanted to stay in the area again.

  • "Lovely apartment, very relaxing and quiet area."

    Plan to return. Fantastic views over Scarborough bay. Ideal accommodation if you want to sit and watch the world go by ( watching the boats on the sea or the bunnies on the grass!) or explore the area by car or foot.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at the lookout."

    It had everything you need in a holiday home and was in easy reach of all the main attractions in the area. The location was peaceful and we would definitely recommend this property if you are looking for a holiday where you can really unwind. The information pack from the owner had useful tips without being excessive.

  • "I stayed at the Lookout as I needed a quite space to do some writing."

    It was perfect. The host (Rachael) went above and beyond to ensure I had what I needed. She allowed me additional hours to complete my writing before leaving and she helpfully posted back a forgotten item. I found the room unusually well equipped - all knives freshly sharpened, a great quality coffee machine and coffee, such a comfy mattress and pillows, and it was beautifully clean and nicely furnished. You can see rabbits hopping about from the balcony as well as the sea. From the building you can either walk South-East along a quiet coastal path and search for fossils on the beach or North-West along the coast to Scarborough castle and shops. I felt safe as a single female visitor and will be recommending it to my colleagues for a quiet writing spot. Thank you very much! Harriet

  • "Great location and view from balcony."

    Cleveland way a short walk away, which leads to Cayton Bay in one direction, and Scarborough the other. Must recommend Clock Cafe and Lucy's Shack - both are located in a fabulous spot where you can enjoy a marvelous vista overlooking the spectacular beaches. Luxury accommodation and many thanks for the chocs and fizz! We will be back!!

    Very well equipped and tidy. Not too far from Scarborough town. The walk to town along the coast is a bit steep so might not be suitable for all but the path along the road is good. View from the balcony is lovely and peaceful. Brilliant for a relaxing holiday.

    It’s an exceptional apartment with the most amazing views. It was all of the highest quality and there was everything you could need. Would recommend to anyone and if we visit that part of the country again we wouldn’t hesitate to book again. We also met the owner who is a lovely lady and her communication was excellent.

  • "This is a lovely flat in a convenient location with fabulous views."

    We were lucky enough to be one of the first guests, so everything was particularly shiny and new, but it is also worth noting that the quality of furnishings and appliances is extremely high. Rachael provided useful local information and was quick to respond to our questions ahead of check-in. Thoroughly recommended.

Set on the third floor, The Lookout is a perfectly situated apartment providing an excellent base for couples to enjoy the best that North Yorkshire has to offer.

Enter in through a welcoming hallway to drop your coats and shoes after a day exploring the area, passing the large bedroom with its luxurious super-king-size wool bed, complete with its own sleek bathroom with rainfall shower just across the hallway.

The living/dining room is an open and light airy space with a seated balcony, offering a place to relax and enjoy an incredible sea view whether inside or out.

When the rain sets in, there are plenty of indoor options, including state of the art slides at Alpamare Waterpark or go underwater at Scarborough Sea Life.

Step back in time at one of the most beautifully located castles in the country.

Take a ride on the North Bay Railway with its historic Water Chute and new Sky Trail.

Spend hours at the seafront Amusement Arcades or take in a world-famous act at the Open Air Theatre.

Scarborough's proximity to Dalby: Yorkshire's Great Forest, The North York Moors National Park, the Wolds and the dramatic scenery of the Yorkshire Coast making it a perfect base from which to explore this most diverse region of Britain.

Bempton Cliffs is home to almost half a million seabirds between the months of March and October, including Gannets, shags, razorbills and puffins, who gather on the huge chalk cliffs high above the North Sea.

At the right time of year, you can see minke and occasionally humpback whales from the coastline, and more frequently, you can see bottlenose dolphins and porpoises playing around in these waters.

The Lookout offers a peaceful coastal retreat with idyllic views and with the North York Moors and Heritage Coast, including the Cleveland Way on the doorstep.
