Description

Princess Lodge is situated in the old town of Scarborough, just a stone’s throw from the beach. This Grade II listed property once had a chemist’s shop on the ground floor, serving the local community from the early 1900s, right up until the 1960s, the property is now a wonderful holiday home. The old town is where the fishermen’s cottages, quay side and ship yards were located. All the streets of the old town are on the hillside so the wives could watch for the boats coming back in. A short walk and you are in the town centre, where you can walk through the indoor market and onto the high street.
Scarborough has plenty to do for people of all ages, with two fantastic beaches and a long promenade, perfect for an evening stroll. Peasholm Park is well worth a visit, especially for those with children as there are pedalos, rowing boats and canoes so you can enjoy sailing around the beautiful lake. Above Peasholm Park is the Alpamare Waterpark, where there’s wave machines, slides, pools, saunas and a fantastic infinity pool making it a great day out for all the family. For evening entertainment, the outdoor theatre is the largest in Europe where many international acts put on shows throughout the summer. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance from the property, and for those who enjoy shopping the High Street is just a 5-minute walk away.
Filey, Whitby and Bridlington are all just a short drive away making the property ideally placed to visit these towns, as well as the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds. The medieval city of York is less than an hour away by car or you can catch a direct train from Scarborough. The icing on the cake has got to be the property’s own private beach hut, ideal for a great family day out at the beach. Beach 400 yards. Shop 50 yards, pub 100 yards, restaurant 250 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.
