Fortuna is a very stylish bungalow situated in a quiet area of Scarborough yet not far from all the amenities. The property has an open plan living area with a cosy wood burner and French doors leading out into the enclosed lawned garden where you’ll find a lovely private seating area. It’s spacious and has a very contemporary feel to it, the glass roof over the lounge is a unique feature allowing you to gaze up at the stars from the warmth and comfort of Fortuna.
The location is excellent for exploring all of North Yorkshire from the beautiful moors to the stunning coast, there’s so much to see and do here. For the walkers amongst you, the Cleveland Way is a short stroll away, an excellent introduction to this renowned rugged coastline. Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary is just down the road and from there you can access the long promenade which runs along the seafront of Scarborough from the north bay to the south bay. The castle stands proudly on the cliff top separating the two bays. Dating back to the 1150s, it has been involved in some of England’s finest battles. You can catch the train from Scalby Mills down to the Sea Life Sanctuary and on to Peasholm Park. The park has been one of Scarborough’s favourite visitor attractions for over 100 years. Try boating on the lake or watch the re-enactment of the Naval Warfare Battle. In the summer months sit and listen to the brass bands that entertain you for free. The park is just a lovely place to sit and enjoy the gardens and wildlife.
Being right on the edge of the North York Moors means you have so much to see either by walking or by car. There’s a steam train that runs from Whitby across the moors and down to the market town of Pickering travelling through Heartbeat country. Further up the coast is Whitby and to the south are Flamborough Head, Filey and the traditional seaside resort of Bridlington. The vibrant city of York is less than an hours drive away with an abundance of shops, museums, street entertainers and of course the famous Minster. Take a leisurely river cruise or go on the open top tourist bus.
