With fantastic views of the castle and seafront you will find yourself sitting by the window watching the world go by and enjoying the view. Oaklands View is on the elegant South Cliff on the clifftops above the bay. It’s a short stroll down to the seafront and you always have the option of the cliff lift to come back up to the Esplanade. This was the first funicular in the UK and has been used by many holidaymakers over its 100 years in operation. This delightful, second floor apartment is next to the famous Crown Spa hotel so you also have the added advantage of a health spa and swimming pool which can be used for a small charge. Passing through the Italian Gardens is also a delightful walk down to the beach with beautiful well-tended gardens and weaving pathways down to the seafront. Once on the seafront, you have a wonderful long marine drive with over 2½ miles of flat gentle walking.
The South Bay is a traditional seaside resort with donkey rides, amusements, the pier, plenty of good restaurants and bars as well as the traditional fish and chip shops. There’s something for all age groups in Scarborough. The famous Stephen Joseph Theatre, home to most of Alan Ayckbourn’s world premieres is a short stroll from the apartment. For the children there is Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary and Peasholm Park where the children can boat on the lake or watch the Naval Battle. The outdoor theatre hosts many international acts and is one of the largest outdoor theatres in Europe.
The seaside resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are to the south and to the north is the resort of Whitby. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is a short drive where you can watch the comical puffins perched on the cliffs. The medieval city of York is an hour away or there is a direct train from Scarborough. If you prefer to drive, there is a park and ride facility once you reach the city. York is often voted in the top 10 cities to visit in the UK and has so many attractions. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 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.

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. Kids will love visiting the Alpamare waterpark for all kinds of aquatic fun, with slides, waves and much more to enjoy. 

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.
