Castle View is a fine Victorian town house that has been completely renovated, keeping many of its beautiful period features, yet with a very contemporary feel. The property offers excellent accommodation, tucked away in a quiet crescent, just off the main shopping street of Scarborough. Lots of bars and restaurants are just a stone’s throw away and guests are not far away from the award-winning beaches and historic harbour. The Stephen Joseph Theatre, famous for its world premieres of almost all of Alan Ayckbourn’s plays, is just around the corner. Scarborough is a perfect holiday base to visit the North Yorkshire Coast. Whitby, Bridlington and Filey are easy accessible by car, as well as the famous North Yorkshire Moors National Park, with its steam railway from Pickering to Whitby. Flamborough Head and RSPB Bempton Cliffs are just a 15-minute drive away, where guests can observe puffins, dolphins and seals in their natural habitat. The historic city of York is less than an hour’s drive away, or you can hop on the train and be there in 30 minutes. For those of you without transport, Castle View is a 2-minute walk from the main train station. With a wide range of places to visit, Castle View is the perfect holiday retreat. Beach ½ mile.

I wouldn't hesitate to book this property again. I stayed for the weekend with 10 other ladies and we were all so impressed! The house is gorgeous and beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need, the photos don't do it justice. Ryk was so helpful with local knowledge and we were made to feel so welcome! The house is well placed with town, bars, restaurants and the beach all within easy walking distance. A fantastic weekend with lovely memories made! Thank you for sharing your lovely property with us!
Thank you so much for your comments Liz.
As perfect guests we would love to welcome you again.
An beautiful, well appointed house
Firstly, getting the keys to the property was straightforward and allowed us to access the property without waiting around as is often the case with weekend lets.
The house is simply stunning. Everything is clean, immaculately tidy and high spec. The decor is visually incredible and fits perfectly to the original style of the house whilst retaining a modern feel.
This is definitely not a property for people who don’t like stairs. There are four storeys and the ceilings are incredibly high, which we found added to the charm but I could see others would find the stairs a challenge.
Parking arrangements were simple. There’s permits in the house allowing you to park within a few metres from the front door. You do have to time it right though as the public can also park here on the pay and display meters.
Overall, we had a wonderful weekend in a beautiful house that is perfectly located for any stay in Scarborough.
Thank you so much for your fantastic review.
We are so chuffed that you guys have had a lovely stay with us.
We would love to welcome you all back any time.
Thanks again. Ryk
An excellent property, well appointed, spotlessly clean, lots of space for all the family.
This was the first time we had all three generations of the family together for a holiday - 8 adults, 3 children (aged 3 -11) and 2 babies. And a good time was had by all! It was great to have a large dining table we could all sit round, a good size kitchen to cook in and plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge. The bath/shower rooms were superb, with clean modern fittings and excellent showers. The kitchen was well equipped, plenty of crockery and cutlery and pots and pans, but we could have done with some casserole type dishes that we could put in the oven. Large water jugs would have been useful too, as would a milk jug. As we were four families, each with a car, parking was a bit of an issue. The families with the babies had the permits, and the rest of us had to use nearby roads which were free, but in disc zones, so you had to remember to move the car at regular intervals if around during the day.. The house is very close to the centre of Scarborough, useful for the shops but it could be a bit noisy in the evenings. However, it usually quietened down later on and left the seagulls to provide the background music for the rest of the night! The landlord was very helpful and there were biscuits, cake and a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival, plus a few essentials. Thank you Ryk! There was plenty for us to do around Scarborough and beyond, from Football Golf near Cayton to the nearby Sea Life Centre and great beaches for our sandcastles. Cycling in the Dalby forest was recommended by the more energetic in our group! The Stephen Joseph Theatre is just round the corner and has some excellent productions. All in all a really enjoyable week for all the family - grandparents through to the three month old. We can thoroughly recommend the house and the North Yorkshire coast.
Thank you for your great review.
We work hard to make sure that our guests have a great stay and have taken on board your recommendations regarding water and milk jugs and more oven dishes.
Thanks again. Ryk

Perfect house, tastefully decorated. Brilliant for large grouos
We took my parents to Scarborough for Mum to show us her roots! Castle View made our stay brilliant with loads of space and everything you could want from a house. Comfy beds, lovely showers, huge table for us all to eat at, cosy lounge and an Xbox to keep the kids happy :) Ryk was helpful from the start of my booking process right up until we left. Attention to detail, faultless. Go and stay with your friends or family, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Ryk.
Thank you for your great review of Castle View. We are thrilled that you had a great stay and, as the perfect guests, would love you to return.
