The property

Situated in the heart of the lively seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire is Rydal Cottage, an 1860's ex headmasters cottage sleeping up to four guests.

Conveniently located within walking distance of local amenities and beautiful stretches of golden sands, this property is ideal for a small family or two couples looking to get away to the coast.

Arriving at the property, step through the historic porch and into the sitting room where you will find a plush corner sofa perfect for snuggling up on with your loved ones while you unwind in front of the TV.

From here, make your way into the kitchen to whip up delicious meals for your group; the kitchen is home to a gas oven, a gas hob and all the smaller appliances such as a kettle and a toaster to assist you with your self-catering requirements.

Meals with your loved ones can be enjoyed in the dining room around the table.

As night rolls in, climb the stairs to the bedrooms and rest your head before an action-packed day of discovering your surroundings.

This delightful dwelling offers two bedrooms, a double and a twin (which can be made up as another double if required), each complete with quality furnishings, light and airy decor and storage so you can unpack your belongings in this home away from home.

Completing the interior of the cottage is a bathroom where you can soak your muscles in the gorgeous roll-top bath and prepare for the day ahead.

Take your dining al fresco in the warmer months and savour a glass of wine on the outdoor furniture; here you can soak up the last of the summer sun with your loved ones, or even escape for your morning coffee before the group rises.

Give the chef of the group a break from the cooking and head out to one of many eateries in the area.

Doorstep walks will take you to the centre of the town where you will find Cowshed Burgers, Antons Café, Bar and Grill, and Mother Hubbard's so there is something for everyone.

The fascinating Sea Life rests on the coastline of Scarborough and offers an insight into the life of the creatures of the deep, perfect for animal lovers and younger members of the group.

There is an array of walking routes to choose from, whether it be a coastal stroll in the fresh sea air, or a wander through one of the plethora of manicured gardens in the area.

Spend an afternoon exploring the Italian gardens which are reachable on foot from the cottage and home to thoughtfully planted flowers and shrubs.

From here, venture slightly further down the coast and discover Shuttleworth Gardens and its picturesque ponds.

History buffs will be pleased to find an abundance of historical sites within Scarborough and the surrounding towns and villages, from ruins to cathedrals, museums to modern architecture, the area really does host something for everyone.

Further afield, take a day trip to the pretty town of Whitby and discover the magnificent Whitby Abbey and golden sandy beach.

For a fantastic break in a lively town, choose Rydal Cottage.
