The property

Nestled within the cobbled streets of Scarborough, upon the North Yorkshire coastline, is Shipmates Cottage, a characterful Grade II listed dwelling, set over four floors.

Just a stone’s throw away from South Bay its sandy beaches, and the host of amenities and attractions dotted across the town, whilst enjoying both traditional and contemporary interiors, the period property welcomes four guests and two well-behaved dogs, suitable for couples, families, and friends alike.

Beginning on the lower-ground-floor, arrive at the sleek kitchen/diner, featuring shaker-style cabinetry, an inviting dining table, all expected culinary appliances, a charming electric woodburning stove, and Italian hand-painted floor tiles, truly reflecting the properties heritage.

Travelling up to the sitting room, quirky features continue through the property, including a set of authentic pirate rum bottles, along with a relaxing space to unwind and catch up, complete with original beamed ceilings, original sash windows, Chesterfield couches, and a further fireplace.

When sleep calls, locate the double bedrooms, the first set on the first floor and complete with industrial lighting, 300 count cotton sheets, and rich colour pallets, and the second set on the second floor, offering views out to Scarborough Castle.

The property is complete with the second-floor shower room, also housing Italian hand-painted floor tiles, offering a delightful space to refresh and prepare for your adventures.

Heading into the town, be spoilt for choice when exploring the array of shops, eateries, and attractions, dotted across the shoreline, with the chance to tour the resident castle, enjoy an exhilarating day out at Alpamare UK, an indoor water park, and get to know the local marine life at SEA LIFE Scarborough.

Take in the town's beauty from the greatest vantage point by boarding Scarborough Spa's Cliff Lift, before strolling around either Peasholm Park or the Italian Gardens, both enveloped by pretty blooms and exotic planters.

By car, you'll also have the opportunity to visit Pickering, a history-rich market town, home to the grand Pickering Castle and the Beck Isle Museum, before arriving at Whitby and its bustling itinerary of activities; Whitby Abbey, Whitby Museum and the Whitby Whale Watching experience are all worth exploring.

Enjoy all of this, and much more, at Shipmates Cottage.
