The Anchorage is situated in Burniston, a small village just north of Scarborough. The bungalow was rebuilt after the second world war after the Germans dropped their last remaining bombs on their way home, hitting the row of houses one of which was The Anchorage. The village has everything you would need with a shop, post office and a couple of good pubs. This area was mainly inhabited by seamen therefore most of the names of the properties are named after the fishing industry. There is a small secluded cove at Burniston and for long sandy beach walks you can’t beat Scarborough where you will find two bays. The north bay is much quieter than the south bay where you find the traditional seaside treats such as donkeys on the beach, sandcastles and amusements. The long flat promenade gives you over three miles of easy walking with views out to sea and inland to the castle perched on the hilltop. North of the property lies the delightful seaside town of Whitby surrounded by the rugged North Yorkshire Moors. Catch the steam train from Whitby and travel over the moors filled with heather down through Heartbeat Country to Grosmont and then onto Pickering. For those walkers amongst you the coastline running past Burniston forms part of the Cleveland Way so there’s some excellent walking right on your doorstep. The dramatic rugged coastline and tiny coves make it a memorable walk. Further down the coast there’s the seaside resorts of Flamborough Head, Filey and Bridlington, all great family beaches. Visit the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton where you can see puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat. It’s just a few minutes drive down into the centre of Scarborough where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and theatres. The Stephen Joseph Theatre is home to most of the world premieres of Alan Aykbourn’s plays. The bungalow is in a perfect base to visit all of the east coast, the moors and the Yorkshire Wolds.

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.
