LET’S MOVE TO … SCARBOROUGH
With its 11th century castle perched on rocky limestone cliffs, its quaint walled harbour, its long promenade, its Blue Flag beaches, its penny arcades and its theatrical tradition it’s not hard to see why Scarborough has long been one of the UK’s favourite holiday resorts.
The North Sea may not be the Mediterranean and storms may blow in over the winter months, but, in the summer, the town really comes alive, attracting day-trippers from across the north as well as tourists from overseas, perhaps enchanted by the famous lines from the Simon and Garfunkel song – something of a hippy anthem in the ‘60s.
And, although Scarborough has always had star billing, it actually has a pretty strong supporting cast when it comes to tourism on Yorkshire’s east coast. Whitby and its famous abbey and connections to Bram Stoker’s Dracula story lies just to the north, Filey and Bridlington and their long, sandy beaches and fairgrounds are to the south while those seeking peace and solitude can choose the rolling heather-covered hills of the North York Moors National Park, which lies just a few miles to the west.
The town can also boast a decent shopping centre including all the major high street chains, one of the country’s most picturesque cricket stadiums and, more recently, the Open Air Theatre has been attracting some of the top names from the pop world, adding a new dimension to an entertainment scene previously dominated by the restored Spa Complex – made even more famous in its own right for its part in the film Little Voice.
With so much to commend it, it would be easy to believe property in the resort would be expensive. However, the town’s lack of a motorway link – one of its few drawbacks – actually helps to moderate the cost of accommodation with a budget of £300,000 enough to buy a substantial property with a sea view – large enough even to enter the accommodation business if the owner so desired – or perhaps a modern home on one of the outlying villages such as Ayton, Seamer or Burniston. Should your budget be more in the region of £200,000, it would still be enough to cover the purchase of a selection of two or three-bedroom family homes, some with generous gardens and not all that far from the town centre.
A branch line does connect the town to the main rail network but, if regular commuting is vital, then Scarborough may not be your best bet. York may be 45 minutes away by train but the journey to Leeds is just over an hour and both take even longer by car. However, if you work from home, you have found a new job close by or you’re looking for somewhere which offers a decent quality of life in retirement, the Scarborough area could be ideal.
Thanks to the town’s tradition as a home for a small fleet of North Sea trawlers, it’s also worth remembering you would never be more than a few minutes away from some of the best fish and chips the UK has to offer …
