Property Details

The Space
Boasting modern features and plenty of style, The Shark has a welcoming living area with large french doors which open up onto a balcony, with views across the rooftops ahead. Relax on one of the two comfy sofas with a good book or turn on the TV to keep up with your favourite shows on Freeview or Netflix. Whether you’re ordering in a takeaway or making a home cooked meal, you can enjoy at the stylish dining table.

The property has a large kitchen which is fully equipped for your self-catering stay.

You’ll find a tranquil feel in the main bedroom which is achieved with a neutral colour scheme and pops of light grey. There is a comfortable four-poster king-size bed and premium bed linens to ensure you get the best sleep possible.

Also sharing the second floor are the other two bedrooms at The Shark. One is a twin, whilst the third bedroom in the property boasts a relaxing queen bed.

The family bathroom has a bathtub, a separate shower, a WC and a wash basin. You’ll also find a convenient WC on the first floor.

Outside you’ll find a private rear courtyard, surrounded by grade II listed walls which formed part of the former St Mary’s monastery.

The Shark is part of two property complex called Graham Close Holiday Homes, sleeping up to 12 guests. If you are looking to book a stay for a large group you can reserve The Shark & The Crab and enjoy exclusive use of the building. Please send us an email with your preferred dates for availability and prices.

The Shark is located at the top of the old coastal town of Scarborough. Packed with seaside charm, you’ll find plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes to discover as well as arcades and ice cream parlours.

There are a number of beaches for you to choose from too. 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 short 10 minute walk from the house where you can see amazing bands, singers and comedians. There is also the Sky Trail Adventure and Peasholm Park nearby.

Getting Around
The Shark is within walking distance of all that Scarborough has to offer and within 1 hours’ drive time of Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Filey.

Scarborough Train Station is a short 20 minute walk away and has routes to Filey, Bridlington, Liverpool 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.

Dog friendly,Fantastic location, very clean nicely decorated. Easy process in getting in to the house. First time we’ve attended a holiday home and will definitely be going back here from now on instead of hotels. Entire family enjoyed our stay
Maybe a later checkout Until 11. Not a complaint though, we managed to tidy house and pack everything up in time just felt a bit rushed.



Loads of space, clean and modern decor






Location. House was beautiful; felt very homely. Easy to to check in and out: very lovely weekend.
Advertised that there would be a high chair. However we couldn’t find one.



Stunning decor & modern property, location was fantastic and sea views over the bay. Great having parking too & all hone comforts.
no negatives to report



Really lovely place and fab location



House is fantastic, everything you could possibly need and in a great location. Steep walk back from sea front but worth it for the view!



A real home from home. Immaculately clean, kitchen provided with everything we could need to cook/ dine. Check in straight forward. Parking is very convenient. Would definitely book again!
Location was great but situated towards the top of a steep hill so those with limited mobility may struggle.



A lovely property in a great location. Full equipped and very comfortable. The bed in the third bedroom would probably be more suitable for a child or a very small, lightweight adult as the mattress was a little uncomfortable. But couldn't fault everything else! Armed Forces entertainment was outstanding! Hopefully return to do a little more exploring and stay a bit longer! Thank you for the milk, tea and coffee too, and the lovely coffee machine!






Fantastic stay at Shark House. It was beautifully decorated, had absolutely everything we needed and it was spotlessly clean.
Fabulous views and the location was ideal!



Clean and beautiful townhouse. Would stay there again
