The Sands - Northstead, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England - Sleeps 4

The Sands

The Sands - Sea Front Apartments offer luxurious holiday accommodation that is available for holidays or short breaks starting from just one night. You can choose from a one or two bedroom apartment and can be assured of ultimate luxury with designer bathrooms and kitchens, spacious living areas with lavish, five Star furnishings and wonderful sea views.

The Sands - Sea Front Apartments offer the luxury of a hotel but the privacy and space that self catering accommodation benefits from. The apartments have flat screen televisions, music centers, DVD players, Elemis toiletries (to name just a few of the little luxuries!) and each one has its own balcony offering fantastic views over Scarborough Castle and the sea beyond - what better place to watch the sun go down with a glass of wine!

Graded 5 Star by Visit Britain, you can be assured of a truly memorable experience in the popular Victorian town of Scarborough, on Yorkshire's magnificent East Coast. A long standing holiday destination, Scarborough has been welcoming holiday makers for over three hundred and fifty years and was the country's first seaside retreat. Its architecture shows its roots in history and a visit to this lovely town is not complete without a visit to the Spa and Scarborough Castle, sitting in an elevated position on the cliff-top overlooking the bays.

Scarborough is ideal for a fun filled family holiday and offers a wide range of activities and interesting places to enjoy. Peasholm Park is on the very doorstep of the apartments providing mini golf, a boating lake and a venue for music concerts during the summer months.

The South Bay of Scarborough offers plenty of attractions to occupy all ages including a miniature railway, activity/family fun centres for the little ones, open-top bus tours and sea-boat trips. The North Bay also has much appeal with the Scarborough Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary - a wonderful attraction where you can see the rescued seals. Last but not least, with two blue flag beaches to choose from, this is an ideal seaside holiday destination.

The Sands Continued

Put the kettle on, pour yourself a beer or pop the cork on that chilled bottle of champagne - then sit on your own private balcony and take in the spectacular scenery of Scarborough’s stunning North Bay, whilst the sun goes down.

As you would expect for five star accommodation, the holiday apartments are exceptionally well equipped. You will find all the conveniences of modern day living in your kitchen, to enable you to prepare a culinary delight, or, why not enjoy a meal from a huge choice of take-aways (who can resist fish and chips at the seaside?). Dine in the lovely surroundings of your open plan dining and living room and then afterwards relax in comfort and enjoy watching your favourite programme or a film on the widescreen television.

For that extra special occasion or romantic night away, why not consider staying in one of the Penthouses which are ideally placed in Lockton House on the top floor, consisting of two bedrooms, very spacious living accommodation and huge panoramic balconies. Whether you are looking for just a one night getaway or longer holiday, The Sands penthouses offer accommodation for up to four guests with prices starting at £250 per penthouse per night.

Each apartment at The Sands is different and special in its own way. Each one comes with those little extras that make your stay that little bit more special and truly memorable. For the younger ones, some apartments have Nintendo Wii's and Play Station 3's ensuring the children are entertained while you enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset!


  • Bed linen, towels and dressing gowns are provided for guests.
  • Included within the price is a daily chamber maid service.
  • If you like to stay fit on holiday and fancy a workout then the private gym is the perfect place with a range of equipment for both cardio-vascular exercise and weight training.
  • Alternatively for those who want to simply relax, take a stroll to the Sun Terrace on the roof of Kepwick House or use the sun lounges and take in the stunning views.
  • Each apartment has an allocated parking space in the secure car park (disabled bays are available).
  • For those who want to escape cooking whilst away, you have a choice of restaurants, bars and cafes on the ground floor of Kepwick House where you have the chance to enjoy fine dining. Or why not treat yourself to an ice-cream from the luxury ice-cream parlour.
  • Beach Chalets - In addition to all of the other wonderful facilities, The Sands offers exclusive use of your own beach-front chalet for the duration of your stay – these are limited and must be booked in advance.
