Nestled in the coastal town of Scarborough, 1 Coastguard Cottages is a cosy holiday home with plenty of charm and style. Located in a hilltop position, you’ll have the best of both worlds as you can enjoy peaceful walks in the grounds of Scarborough Castle or the bustling sea front area in this popular resort. Sleeping up to four guests, 1 Coastguard Cottages is perfect for family holidays, couples escapes and getaways with friends.
1 Coastguard Cottages has been recently refurbished and features homely interiors throughout.
LIVING ROOM AND DINING AREA
The property boasts a cosy and welcoming living room with two comfy sofas, an armchair and a flat screen TV, an ideal space to unwind after a busy day of exploring. Sharing the space is a dining area consisting of a wooden table with four comfortable dining chairs.
Ultra modern and sophisticated, the kitchen features light wooden cabinets. Perfect for preparing meals for you and your loved ones, the kitchen has everything you could need to make the most of your self-catering stay.
Take the stairs up to the first floor and you’ll find the master bedroom and the family bathroom. The bedroom benefits from a king size bed, along with a sea view. The bathroom is home to a bathtub with handheld shower, separate walk in shower, WC and wash basin.
The second bedroom, located on the second floor, is a twin room featuring two single beds. Both rooms at 1 Coastguard Cottages boast premium bed linens and plush bedding, the perfect combination for a great night’s sleep.
The outside space at 1 Coastguard Cottages is a small patio area which is a real sun trap in the Summer afternoons.
Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during bookings. For this reason, we require all of our guests to transfer a £250.00 Damage Deposit (subject to a £10.00 administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver for £25.00 which will cover you for up to £500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.
Packed with seaside charm, you’ll find plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes to discover as well as arcades and ice cream parlours in Scarborough.
There are a number of beaches for you to choose from. The popular South Bay is a sun trap and close to the hustle and bustle of the town centre. North Bay has been accredited with Blue Flag status meaning it’s one of the best beaches in Europe! Cayton Bay is the quietest of the three and boasts a sweeping bay with a rural feel. Lastly Cornelian Bay is the remotest and hardest to get to but it’s a hidden gem and often empty.
Ideal for all weathers, there are lots of indoor attractions in Scarborough for the whole family. Head to Sea Life Sanctuary to see seals, penguins, sharks, turtles and more or Scarborough Castle to explore its 3000 year history. If it’s outdoor fun you’re looking for, The Open Air Theatre is a gentle 20 minute walk from the apartment where you can see amazing bands, singers and comedians. There is also the Sky Trail Adventure and Peasholm Park nearby.
1 Coastguard Cottages is within walking distance of all that Scarborough has to offer and within 45 minutes’ drive time of Whitby and Bridlington.
Scarborough Train Station is a short 20 minute walk away and has routes to Bridlington, York, Hull and Sheffield.
There are plenty of bus routes throughout Scarborough. Hop on the 12 route and you can visit neighbouring seaside spots of Filey and Bridlington. The X93 travels through to Middlesbrough with drop offs in Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby.
Guests have access to the full property. The keys to 1 Coastguard Cottages are accessed via a secure key safe and full details will be provided shortly before your arrival date.
A parking scratch card is provided, allowing for free on-street parking nearby on a first come, first served basis. An on-site parking bay is available for the purposes of loading and unloading.
A starter pack of logs will be provided, however any additional logs for the fireplace will need to be purchased by guests. We strongly advise children are supervised at all times when the log burner is in use.
All was fine & as expected, unusual parking we were a little unsure if the scratch card over rode the 2 hour limit, which it did!
it was very very attractive property In a beautiful location
The shower wasn’t very hot and there was no washing up liquid
The location is perfect, a short (if a little steep!) walk to Scarborough sea front yet the cottage is very quiet and secluded. It is beautifully appointed and the elevated cottage garden is lovely.
Spacious, charming, well stocked kitchen, nicely decorated, beautiful views and fantastic location: close to town and beach!
Very nicely decorated and well appointed from a furniture and kitchen perspective. Nice location on the headland
Not issues for us but:
Position is top of a steep road so not ideal for people with disabilities.
Nowhere to sit out.
The property was beautiful and really well presented. Be warned it’s at the top of the hill but that’s Scarborough and the views from the top of the hill are superb. Well worth the walk with easy reach to both beaches.
The location was absolutely amazing and perfect. Everything clean and tidy, cosy and perfectly enough space for the family.
Everything was great.
This house is amazing & we didn’t want to come home.
It it beautifully decorated and so in keeping with the period of the property. Spotlessly clean & tidy.
The gardens are so peaceful & what a view of the south bay.
There is definitely a walk up the hill but it’s a small price to pay for when you get ‘home’.
A real hidden gem - would stay again easily.
Cottage itself was lovely. Nice decor. Lovely garden and surroundings. But a long walk from station and some steep hills to climb from coastline.
Neighbours did not seem happy with Airbnb letting and questioned us twice when taking the back path through gardens.
Single bed mattresses were uncomfortable.
No welcome pack so after a long, delayed journey and a long walk we were disappointed to not even find a pint of milk to welcome us. And, then a long walk to find a shop! For the cost we had expected a little more attention to detail.
We booked for 2 nights at Easter but i could easily have stayed for a week. The property is clean, well presented, and has everything you need. The “secret” garden is a hidden gem with fantastic views, and i don’t think the booking websites advertise this enough. It was amazing to sit and have a morning cup of tea or evening glass of wine with the sound of the birds singing and great views. Even the garden at the back of the property is so much more beautiful than the pictures show.
The property is in a lovely area near the castle. It’s up the hill so be prepared to walk up and down a lot.
The Scarborough Arms is a lovely local pub serving nice food, with lovely staff too.
I will definitely book to visit this beautiful accommodation again.
I was originally a little put off by the damage waiver and i think it would be best if Hotel & Stay hid this in the price instead of hounding for payment. But now i’ve been on the holiday, it wouldn’t worry me.

Such a pretty and relaxing property. A great location for exploring Scarborough and the surrounding area. House was very well equipped and spotless. We were sad to leave 1 Coastguard Cottage.
Lovely property, very clean and newly decorated, perfect for a family of 4, lovely large bathroom. Excellent location and views of Scarborough. Everything you could every need was provided, although would of liked full length mirrors in bedrooms, oh and a washing up bowl, so not end of the world! Parking was good for location, however I definitely wouldn't recommend this property for anyone with mobility issues, steep garden entrance to front of property, and steep stairs inside. I would definitely come back again, it was very nice
