Step outside the apartment and you have pubs, shops and restaurants all at hand, with an excellent Chinese and Italian just a couple of minutes’ walk, or stroll along the road to visit the castle ruins, perched high on the cliff top.

The choice of attractions in the immediate area is enviable, including the open air theatre in Peasholm Park, Scarborough Cricket Ground, the renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round, the Sealife Centre at Northbay and art galleries and museums.
If you can tear yourselves away from the town, the surrounding countryside of the North York Moors has miles of scenic cycle routes and a wonderful network of public footpaths that take you through spectacular scenery and moorland.
