The Anchorage description

The Anchorage is situated in Burniston, a small village just north of Scarborough. The bungalow was rebuilt after the second world war after the Germans dropped their last remaining bombs on their way home, hitting the row of houses one of which was The Anchorage. The village has everything you would need with a shop, post office and a couple of good pubs. This area was mainly inhabited by seamen therefore most of the names of the properties are named after the fishing industry. There is a small secluded cove at Burniston and for long sandy beach walks you can’t beat Scarborough where you will find two bays. The north bay is much quieter than the south bay where you find the traditional seaside treats such as donkeys on the beach, sandcastles and amusements. The long flat promenade gives you over three miles of easy walking with views out to sea and inland to the castle perched on the hilltop. North of the property lies the delightful seaside town of Whitby surrounded by the rugged North Yorkshire Moors. Catch the steam train from Whitby and travel over the moors filled with heather down through Heartbeat Country to Grosmont and then onto Pickering. For those walkers amongst you the coastline running past Burniston forms part of the Cleveland Way so there’s some excellent walking right on your doorstep. The dramatic rugged coastline and tiny coves make it a memorable walk. Further down the coast there’s the seaside resorts of Flamborough Head, Filey and Bridlington, all great family beaches. Visit the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton where you can see puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat. It’s just a few minutes drive down into the centre of Scarborough where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and theatres. The Stephen Joseph Theatre is home to most of the world premieres of Alan Aykbourn’s plays. The bungalow is in a perfect base to visit all of the east coast, the moors and the Yorkshire Wolds.
