Description

Langford Villa occupies the finest location in this charming and unspoilt town. Situated just 100 yards from the clifftop and with Glen Gardens at the rear, peace and quiet is guaranteed. Langford Villa is a ground floor apartment, and the owner occasionally lives in the apartment above. It is only a 5-minute walk from the town along The Crescent, and the local hotel is next door but one should you fancy a drink at the bar, or if you don’t want to cook!
Langford Villa is also steeped in history, this Grade II listed building was built in around 1830 and was regularly chosen by the Terry family of York (Sir Joseph Terry, the famous chocolatier!) as a place to spend the summer. You might even find one of his celebrated Chocolate Oranges on arrival. Filey is a very popular seaside resort due to its fabulous long sandy beach stretching over 4 miles down towards Reighton. For those of you who enjoy walking, the Cleveland Way finishes along the clifftops and goes down to Filey Brigg. You can walk part of the Cleveland Way to Scarborough with breathtaking views out to sea and the wonderful rugged coastline.
The resorts of Bridlington, Flamborough Head, Scarborough and Whitby are all easily accessible as well as the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton cliffs. Here you can see the puffins close up from the viewing platforms along the cliff sides. The medieval city of York is less than an hour’s drive away, voted nearly every year as one of the top ten cities to visit in the UK, so it’s definitely worth a visit. The city appeals to all ages with its historic buildings, the Railway Museum and a host of art galleries and theatres. Beach 500 yards. Shop 600 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

About the local area

Scarborough is situated at the southern end of the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and, together with Filey, offers beautiful beaches, coastal walks and a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

Scarborough is a town of two halves, with South Bay full of amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and donkey rides, whilst the more genteel North Bay is home to several parks and grand Victorian buildings. The whole family will want to take a trip on the miniature North Bay Railway, which will take you to Sea Life Centre and to the Historic Water Chute and Boating Lake, where you can have a go on the amazing Water Walkers.

Filey is a small traditional seaside town, home to an award-winning museum and a nature reserve that is a haven for wild birds. The town is situated at the eastern end of The Cleveland Way, a long- distance footpath that skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer. Children will enjoy a visit to Funland with its rides and arcades, perhaps followed by a visit to nearby Glen Gardens, which boasts a boating lake and children's play area.

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white-knuckle rides to children's entertainment. For something really out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pesky Husky, where you can take part in a kennel tour followed by walk or even a trek with these charismatic dogs.
