Property Details

The Space
The Crab has a spacious living and dining area with two light grey sofas, a coffee table and a flat screen TV equipped with Freeview and Netflix. Bright and neutral, it is a relaxing and comfortable space. The dining area includes a large rectangular table and six wooden chairs where you can enjoy meals with your loved ones.

Fully equipped, the kitchen has everything you could need to prepare meals easily.

The Crab has three bedrooms. The main bedroom features a four-poster king size bed and the second bedroom is a twin, whilst the third bedroom boasts a queen bed. All beds have plush bedding and premium bed linens to ensure you have the best sleep possible.

The family bathroom has a bathtub and a separate shower, as well as a WC and basin.

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 Crab 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 Crab & The Shark and enjoy exclusive use of the building. Please contact our team for availability and prices.

The Crab 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 Crab 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.
