The property

This fabulous first floor apartment is set in a converted Victorian property, in the elegant Esplanade area of South Cliff in Scarborough.

Perfectly placed for both the beach and the town centre, it would appeal to couples and small families looking for a seaside holiday in this popular coastal town.

A communal entrance leads up to the apartment which offers bright and spacious accommodation, retaining original features such as high ceilings and ornate ceiling roses.

The sitting room is a delight, with a floor to ceiling bay window throwing in plenty of light and the afternoon sunshine streaming in.

A large sliding sash window opens onto a small private balcony, where you can sit and relax with a glass of wine, whilst admiring the beautiful vistas over the sea and the castle.

The dining table is set in the bay window to also capture the views whilst enjoying breakfast before heading off for the day.

There is a modern, well-equipped kitchen complete with everything you'll need during your stay and which also has access to the balcony.

Both bedrooms have quality memory foam mattresses and linens, while the king-size has an en-suite shower room too.

The Z bed is available for flexibility, with room for it in the main bedroom.

There are two steps down to the second bedroom and the contemporary family bathroom.

This apartment couldn't be in a more convenient location, with all that Scarborough has to offer right on your doorstep.

It is just a stone's throw to the sea front and the cliff lift, or you can stroll through the ornamental Italian Gardens.

The vibrant and bustling harbour is just a 10 minute walk, with cafes, shellfish stalls, ice-cream and amusements.

The town centre is also just a 10 minute walk away.

A must is the superb open air theatre which lies at North Bay and hosts many famous names throughout the year.

Culture lovers can indulge in the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round, founded by Alan Ayckbourn, with many of his plays premiered there.

For country lovers, the North York Moors National Park is only a short drive away, with heather clad moors, cycle trails and numerous public footpaths.

Take a trip on the steam train that runs through the stunning scenery from nearby Pickering to Grosmont or explore the small fishing villages, including Robin Hood's Bay, that are scattered along the rugged coastline.

With so much to do in this wonderful area, you will want to return again and again to this comfortable and spacious apartment.
