It is a short walk into town where you can find a selection of shops including a very good M&S Food Hall. The Market Hall hasa really good deli stall and there are a number of shops in the town and large supermarkets if you want to go by car. There is a small corner shop in Princess Square which stocks the basics. In the evening enjoy a range of resturants, the wonderful Stephen Joseph Theatre, live music venues or just walk along the front. For children (and adults) it is a short hop on the open top bus to North Bay where you can walk to the Sea Life Centre or enjoy Peaseholm Park. Or learn to surf! The Rotunda is worth a visit as is the Museam and Art Gallery. Further afield by bus or car lies Whitby and other lovely North Yorkshire towns and villages plus great walks. We have put lots of information in a file in the cottage about the things we like to do which we hope you find useful.
About Dilys Wynn
We are a family of four, one grown up daughter and a teenage son. My sister moved to Scarborough Old Town some years ago and we all fell in love with it during our visits here.
Dilys Wynn purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Dilys Wynn chose Scarborough
Having fallen in love with Scarbrough, we decided that this is where we would move to, once our final youngster had flown the nest. When we saw this cottage we took the plunge and bought it. So before we move up and when we are not using it ourselves we let it to guests.
What makes this cottage unique
We love the fabulous views, the ability to simply park the car and walk everywhere. There is always something going on, even out of season. We always visit the theatre, enjoy live music and often eat out very inexpensively.
