About The Old Jet Works

***Just launched May 2016***

A fabulous vintage-chic holiday home with stunning sea views in Victorian Scarborough, welcome to The Old Jet Works. This gorgeous one-bedroom property has one of the hottest addresses in town, within easy walking distance to the beach, shops, cafes and restaurants of this charming seaside resort. The perfect escape for couples who love everything on the doorstep…

Set within an historic building near the Rotunda museum and Spa bridge, The Old Jet Works has been subject to a quality refurbishment giving it a sophisticated and urban style. The character of the building has been retained throughout, and history buffs will love discovering some of the old workings are still on show in the lounge.

The accommodation in this contemporary coastal property is set on the first floor over various levels, with all rooms looking out towards the sea. The sitting room is on the upper level; a bright and stylish room boasting a unique semi-circular shape, double period sash windows, warm oak flooring and a large comfy sofa to relax on. There’s an LCD TV with Freeview and Wi-Fi included too for if you’re catching up online. And for those cosy evenings in there’s a living flame electric stove to warm your toes by.

The kitchen sits next door, a spacious room kitted out with sleek glossy units and all mod cons including a touch-screen hob, microwave and dishwasher. There’s also a large breakfast bar area with stools facing the coastal views, the perfect spot to settle down and enjoy some fresh seafood from one of the fishmongers in town.

The bedroom is again on the upper level, a gorgeous room which makes the most of those stunning views. A real romantic’s space, there are again two large sash windows and a queen size bed to stretch out on. Wake up to the sound of seagulls overhead and enjoy a lazy breakfast in bed gazing out to sea. The bathroom sits right next door and comes complete with a bath-tub for those long hot soaks, the perfect way to end a bracing walk along Yorkshire’s breath-taking coastline.

Outside the property you’ll find a pleasant lawned green with an elevated position looking down to the sea, throw down a rug and enjoy a picnic here in the warmer months. And of course the beautiful sandy beaches are just a short stroll away…

There are plenty of options for parking near the property and the Owner provides parking tickets for the duration of your stay.

Local Area

The Old Jet Works has a fabulous location with one of the best sea-views of any holiday cottage along the Yorkshire Coast. Right in the heart of town, you have all of the delights of Scarborough within walking distance including its gorgeous sandy beaches, cafes and restaurants.

Make your way up through the historic streets to explore Scarborough Castle, or pop into St Mary’s churchyard to visit Ann Bronte’s grave. Enjoy a stroll around the South Cliff area taking in the famous Spa and Italian Gardens. Catch the Cliff lift down to the beach and walk around to the peaceful North Bay, visit the renowned Sea Life centre or explore the beautiful Peasholm Park with its boating lake, woodland walks and oriental influences.

And for eats you simply must indulge with traditional fish and chips at least once, there’s plenty of choice. And for those special evenings settle down to great food and wine at Jeremy’s or Lazenby’s in town.

The Old Jet Works is within easy read of the rest of the Yorkshire Coast. Much like its Cornish counterpart, the North Yorkshire coastline is a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket ‘n spade territory. That’s not to say it’s stuck in the past, in fact the coast’s villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town’s rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th Century ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby’s crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries.

Robin Hood’s Bay, Sandsend, Staithes and Runswick Bay are also worth a visit, and each have their own unique charm.

The Old Jet Works position means you are also perfectly placed to take in the best of North York Moors. This dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland is just a short drive away. Somewhat smaller than the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors still cover an area of almost 600 square miles and like the Dales you can easily find yourself miles from anywhere relatively quickly. But there is something distinctly more civilised and less remote about the Moors. In place of harsh limestone and dramatic peaks you’ll find gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys. There is a sense of wilderness, particularly on top of the high central moorlands, but its cast in comforting soft focus.

We recommend taking the road from Thornton-Le-Dale or Pickering north towards Whitby to experience it in all its grandeur. There are countless pretty villages and towns to explore in the area. The handsome market towns of Pickering and Helmsley are a must, as is the archetypical Moors village of Hutton-le-Hole.
