    The improvements made since we were last here made it an even more pleasurable stay.

    It was on two levels which gave extra space. It was close to attractions and the beach. We would come again without any hesitation.

    Perfect location and views. The only disappointment was that i looked to book the same week next year and the price had increased by £200 putting it out of our price range.

  • "Kittiwake is a great base for a short break."

    There are plenty of walks and things to do. We had hoped to book again for next year. However, we are really shocked at how much you have increased the price for the same short break. Such increases are going to price many people out of booking through you and will mean many properties stand empty. You need to reconsider your pricing.

  • "We have stayed at Kittiwake several times now and it never disappoints with views from the lounge window of Scarborough castle and the sea at the North Bay."

    Since our last visit it has been re-decorated nicely and refurbished with the bath ahving been removed and replaced by a shower cabinet. Much of the furniture has been replaced and the reclining sofa was a big hit.

  • "This was our 2nd year staying in Kittiwake and as ever it’s a fantastic apartment with wonderful views."

    There’s a dedicated car parking space on the front and it’s on the quiet North Bay within 5/10 minutes of Peasholm Park or the South Bay. There’s been a refit to the bathroom since our last visit but we were emailed to inform us that the bath is no longer there. New recliner settee in the lounge makes for comfortable evenings watching tv (WiFi is available so we took our Amazon firestick which worked great!). A very clean apartment with towels & bedding provided. We were emailed prior to departure regarding Covid precautions & contacted by the owner with key collection details. It’s a wonderful apartment with lots of amenities (dishwasher, hairdryer, cooking facilities etc) and there’s some lovely little touches like being provided with hand wash etc that make it a place we’ll definitely be going back to!

    Shower bit awkward to get out of as too near to toilet. Handy movable step provided, but it needed a handle support to assist alighting from shower. Very quiet position near bay and beach. Great to have parking.

  • "Great sea views from the lovely reclining sofa."

    Everything you needed in kitchen. Very comfy bed in main bedroom. Only downside was no radiator in second bedroom, just a convector heater which we dare not leave on overnight. But all in all a great place to stay.

    The owner has put up a note to say it might be difficult, but we found this very frustrating. We had to use the washing machine to wash all the towels we used to mop up water after a major water leak into the flat.

    The apartment was fully equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. I really don't want to leave a good review as Kittiwake will then be booked up and I won't be able to return, but I can't leave a bad review and there isn't anything detrimental to say about it.

The property

With stunning panoramic views overlooking the sea, headland and castle, this fabulous duplex apartment is in an enviable position in the popular coastal town of Scarborough.

Set over the ground and first floor in a converted former Victorian hotel, the property is perfectly placed for enjoying the many attractions of this vibrant resort, but within close proximity of the spectacular North York Moors National Park.

With upside down accommodation, entry is via a staircase up to a communal entrance into the modern apartment.

The open plan living area is comfortably furnished to a high standard, with a well-equipped, contemporary kitchen and a glass-topped dining table.

The large front window throws in plenty of light in this inviting room and enables guests to sit and watch the sweeping vistas of the ever-changing seas.

Stairs lead down to the two cosy bedrooms and bathroom, the double with a door leading onto the small, enclosed patio.

This lovely apartment benefits from private parking for one car, a rare find in this bustling seaside town and with all amenities at hand, you can leave your car safely and explore on foot.

Across the road, a path leads down to the promenade and the quieter beach of North Bay, but with a couple of excellent cafes in which to indulge in.

Enjoy the colourful gardens of Peasholm Park, with its boating lake, or walk along the promenade to South Bay, with its amusements, restaurants and pubs.

The castle ruins, perched high on the cliffs are worth a visit, whilst culture lovers will be impressed by the renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round, which features excellent productions.

The beautiful surrounding countryside is well worth discovering, with its heather-clad moors, pretty villages and wonderful network of footpaths and trails for walkers.

Altogether, a superb base for a varied and relaxing holiday, at any time of the year.

Pickering 17 miles; Whitby 20 miles; York 40 miles.

Popular since Victorian times, the vibrant seaside town of Scarborough retains many of its original fine buildings, parks and gardens, as well as its historic castle which overlooks the town. North Bay and South Bay provide two superb stretches of beautiful, golden sandy beaches, popular with families and small children. There are a number of child friendly activities and many excellent visitor attractions for grown-ups too, including the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough Spa and Scarborough Open Air Theatre for live music. Scarborough is a great location for outdoor activities, with golf courses, lovely coastal walks along the Cleveland Way, stunning cycle routes such as the old railway to Whitby, beautiful sailing and championship quality surfing. Add to this all the usual seaside entertainment and bustling promenades located close to the beach and Scarborough is the destination with something for everyone. Ideally situated for touring the coastline and the moors, Scarborough is an ideal base for a fun-filled break.
