Description

Forming part of a Grade ll listed Georgian house, this self-contained lower ground floor apartment is steeped in history. Just two steps down from street level, its private front door would once have been the servants’ entrance to the house above. Built around 1730 the house stands on the foundations of a medieval stone cottage that was originally on the site. Later on, this lower floor served for many years as the local dairy with milk being dispensed from churns and delivered around the old town by horse and cart.


Bright, light and characterful, this lovely apartment balances style and comfort in equal measure. With its underfloor heating and multi-fuel burner, it’s a superb place to come back to after that long walk along the cliff tops. The Cleveland Way passes through Scarborough to its final destination in Filey, so there are plenty of good walks right from your doorstep.


The town centre is just along the road with some excellent restaurants and bars. If you fancy the theatre there’s the Stephen Joseph Theatre, home to most of Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s world premieres. Just a two minute walk and you can be sat on the beach. Scarborough is famous for its two bays, the North and South Bay. They are both very different in that the South Bay is the livelier of the two, with donkeys, amusements and traditional seaside facilities, whereas the North Bay is a quiet bay overlooked by Scarborough Castle.


The resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are just a short drive away, with their award winning beaches. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is well worth a visit. You’ll see thousands of puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat as well as the seals that lounge on the rocks. In the area there are plenty of stately homes to visit such as Castle Howard, home to the filming of Brideshead Revisited, Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall. The medieval city of York can be reached in less than an hour by train or by car. With plenty to see and do there, it makes for a great day out. Visit some of the local market towns such as Pickering, Beverley and Driffield, all selling local produce and gifts.


The Old Dairy is a perfect base to visit the North York Moors, the coast and the 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, 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.
