  • "Lovely home, beds bathroom clean, however, issues with areas being dusty, dirty handrail, draws in large bedroom had sticky substance in it, lampshade over dinning table full of cobwebs."

  • "We had a lovely stay at Seefarers."

    The house is gorgeous and full of character, lots of space for 8 of us. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, pans, crockery, etc and the sauna is a lovely addition, very relaxing. The only thing I would say is the back yard could do with being jet-washed as there's moss all over the decking and table so it's not pleasant to sit outside. The location is perfect, Peasholm Park is a stones throw and there's lots to do there, we loved the dragon boat pedalos. North Bay Beach was lovely in the daytime but most things were closed at night, still worth a visit. We also had a ride on the steam train to the sealife centre which the kids loved. South Bay beach is only 15 minutes walk away and it was very busy but still enjoyable, much like the more traditional English seaside. The kids loved the amusements and fair and you could get decent meals from various cafes, bars and chip shops there. The house was the perfect base to visit all these from. We would definitely recommend a stay here, lovely!

  • "The house is very spacious and clean and comfortable."

    The bedding and towels were immaculate. Very convenient for Peasholme Park and the beach. The only criticism would be the patio area which hadn’t been cleaned. The tables and chairs and decking were dirty and whole area needed a good sweep. However house was lovely.

  • "The Seafarers at Christmas was brilliant the whole family loved it."

    Could not fault the property, it was excellent. All the rooms are tastefully decorated, & the beds are extremely comfortable. Loved the open fire which was lovely on Christmas Day (traditional). Two of our party used the sauna & thought it was great, especially linking their music playlist from their mobile phone & relaxing. Location is ideal for North Bay Peasholm Park in particular. Highly recommend a stay at this property. Thanks for the welcome pack, xmas treats & xmas tree, lovely touch.

  • "It was lovely to be the first guests at Seafarers and to be greeted with a pristine property."

    The accommodation is very good with large comfortable bedrooms and a pleasant large living area and kitchen. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into equipping and furnishing the property. Seafarers is ideally located about 10 - 15 minutes walk to the centre of Scarborough, with a further 10 minutes to the attractions and beach at South Bay, whilst Peasholm Park and North Bay are a similar distance in the opposite direction. Our only negatives about the property are very much issues of personal choice. Our party included 3 children between the ages of 6 and 10 and we really missed not having a washing machine - we would have happily sacrificed the dishwasher for a washer to help clean sandy costumes and beach towels etc. We thought that the sauna was a nice usp but found we couldn't heat it to more than 40 degrees and it didn't feel overly hot and felt that a utility room and/or downstairs cloakroom would have been better use of the space. Overall we had a very pleasant stay at Seafarers and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a family holiday in Scarborough.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you had a good time. The temperature for the sauna is set to default now at 60 degrees but can be changed following instructions in property. We do appreciate your comments and will be considering adding facilities in the near future. We do hope to welcome you again soon. Kind regards Property Owner

The property

This spacious mid-terrace property is situated in the heart of the seaside town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

Perfect for a family or a group of friends, Seafarers offers a central base from which to explore the North Yorkshire coastline.

Throughout the property you will discover a delightful blend of contemporary décor, beautifully complimented by a range of well preserved period features.

On the ground floor a spacious open plan living space awaits, featuring a stunning open fire where you can warm the cockles on cooler evenings.

The space is served by the adjoining kitchen with everything you'll need to prepare heart-warming meals to enjoy around the table.

As the day draws to an end, you have a choice of four generously sized bedrooms - The first floor houses the master bedroom with luxurious super-king-size double bed, along with a further king-size double room.

The second floor is home to two flexible rooms, both housing super king-size double beds with zip/link features; The larger of the two includes a day bed and can be made into a triple family room, while the other can be made up as a twin.

Serving the bedrooms are two contemporary bathrooms, one featuring a large bath with shower over and the other a walk-in shower cubicle, so you can choose whether to hop in the shower or have a deep soak in the bath.

After a day at the beach and a brisk ocean swim, what could be more rejuvenating than taking a seat in the sauna, featuring built in speakers to enjoy a relaxing playlist and forget life’s troubles.

Outside, a private rear patio provides the perfect escape to enjoy a refreshing drink and bask in the sun and sea air.

Centrally located in Scarborough, there are many attractions within short walking distance of the property, including the stunning Japanese-inspired Peasholm Park and the attractions of North Bay, including its Blue Flag beach, Alpamare water park, the SEA LIFE aquarium and the Open Air Theatre.

The busier South Bay is also within walking distance with arcades, donkey rides and Luna Park funfair - perfect for a family-friendly day out to keep the children entertained.

For the adults, the town provides an array of bars, pubs and restaurants to indulge in.

Further afield, why not take a trip to the nearby town of Filey, with its award-winning beach, or head north to discover the historical town of Whitby, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's 18th century novel, Dracula.

Inland, you can spend the day exploring the North York Moors National Park, home to a wealth of walking and cycling opportunities through dramatic countryside.
