  • "On arrival through the front door I had some reservations due to the hall and the stairs being very dark."

    However, when we entered the appartment it was lovely. Furnished to a high standard, comfortable and plenty of room. The welcome pack was good. The back door was a blessing and we used it all the time. Parking excellent as it is early season but fear in the height of the summer it wouldn't be. A few extra mugs and other crockery would be good as only 3 mugs left but I did buy another white mug and left it there. I know it is for two adults but it would mean we wouldn't have to wash up as much and would use the dishwasher like we do at home. Situated in an area that's close to the North Bay and only 15mins into town. We have been coming to Scarborough since 1985 and will definately be coming back to North Bay Retreat.

  • "The accommodation was excellent."

    Using the back entrance door was far easier and perhaps should go in the literature. The apartment was very convenient for the town centre, Peasholme Park and the Sea Front.

  • "Great place to stay, location really good, comfortable & clean with a much appreciated welcome pack."

    Using the back entrance, it's just a short walk down the hill to The Hideout, a One Stop shop, Fish & Chips shop & Bella Rosa. Go up the road to the brew pub & down from there takes you to the beach to your right, Peasholm park to your left & outdoor theatre straight across!

    The welcome pack was a really nice touch we will definitely stay here again the location is great for coastal walks and a stones throw from Peasholm Park and 20 min walk to the town centre and South Bay over the moon. The people next door did party from10pm until 7am from Saturday night not your fault. Thank you so much Dave and Andrea Anderson

  • "North Bay retreat was a wonderful stay with everything in the property excellent quality and very very cozy."

    I felt like I needed a degree to operate the cooker and thermostat but Ben had provided manuals for all appliances so no excuse. It smelled lovely and fresh on entering and very clean which is a must for me. Very good value for money and would definitely return and recommend to others thank you Ben and cleaner. Only negative was there was no dishwasher tablets or wash tablets but not a problem I bought a cloth and washed by hand as I don't have a dishwasher at home.

    We found the apartment to be welcoming on entering with the heating and subtle lighting already on. We were very pleased to see you had accommodated for our every need even for our dog with good quality furnishings and fittings, providing all the amenities we would require during our stay even down to the toilet roll

  • "The apartment was perfect."

    It is beautiful and every aspect is taking care off. Love the personal touch too. Great location too. My only niggle is that maybe let people know that work is being done next door. The noise goes on from first thing in the morning to late at night some nights. It wouldn’t have made a difference to my booking as I love staying there but I would have changed some plans to stay out until the workmen had finished for the day.

    Always a good start. Modern feel, stylish decor, well presented. It feels like everything was catered for and thought about, even the text from the owner Ben, on the day of arrival to say we vould get in a couple of hours early. Would definitely stay again and absolutely reccomend to anyone who is not sure.

    Bags, hand wash, T.roll, washing up liquid , salt n pepper, all appreciated when holidaying via public transport. The lounge seating was lovely n comfortable with large tv screen for cosy nights in. Shower good, we couldn’t turn temperature up much ,it appeared set, but it was warm enough for us . Bedroom was a good size with a comfy bed and lovely clean fresh white bedding. The welcome pack was a very nice touch. Having a back exit was ideal as steps down to basement a bit steep especially with suitcases. The guest book reflects on people’s lovely stays at NBRetreat which shows the thought and care the owner has put in to the apartment to ensure guests have a lovely holiday Overall we enjoyed our stay, would definitely book again and hopefully come with a new little dog next time.

    And very grateful for the use of the back door, I don’t do stairs very well these days. Lovely modern touches like underfloor heating and the ceiling lighting, so stealing that idea. Close to everything we needed but far enough so no great crowds. And the added touch of a Walrus visiting at the same time was awesome.

The property

Set in a prime location within the centre of Scarborough, a seaside town in North Yorkshire, is this ground-floor apartment, North Bay Retreat.

Just paces away from the shoreline and an abundance of local amenities and attractions, whilst featuring an open-plan contemporary living space and a private courtyard, the apartment welcomes two guests, ideal for couples.

Benefit from the sleek, well-stocked kitchen, before gathering around the dining table or lounging upon the plush corner sofa, idyllic positioned for a cosy film night.

Fitting for summer evenings, head outside to the rear courtyard, to experience the last of the Yorkshire sunshine, before retiring to the king-size bedroom, also homing a wall-mounted TV, where you can unwind and rest.

Ahead of your daily adventures, refresh in the sleek shower room, before grabbing a coffee and exploring Scarborough on foot; you'll arrive at a wide variety of amenities, including The View Restaurant, The Watermark Cafe, and several convenience stores.

Within walking distance you'll also reach SEA LIFE Scarborough, Peasholm Park, a Japanese designed exotic garden, and Cleveland Way, the perfect vantage point above the coastline.

Scarborough Castle is also a must-visit whilst in the area, along with hikes across the Cinder Track, strolls on South Bay Beach, and an immersive day out at the Regal Lady Dunkirk Experience, showcasing original wartime artefacts.

Whitby is also a recommended location to visit whilst staying at North Bay Retreat , with an array of seaside amusements to enjoy, along with tours of the grand Whitby Abbey, Whitby Whale Watching, and the chance to view the county from the 199 Steps landmark.

Enjoy a North Yorkshire break at North Bay Retreat .
