What you'll enjoy

A quirk of history with stories to tell and new memories to make. An unexpected sight gracing the Spa Bridge at the gateway to South Cliff's Italian Gardens. Uninterrupted views of the beach, sea, and harbour. This is Scarborough’s famous landmark Spa Chalet. Now available as a superior luxury holiday let.

It’s a historic home captured by many artists on canvas and described by the Leeds Mercury as "having the finest views in England.” There is certainly none better of Scarborough’s South Bay than from the balcony. Offering up all year-round luxury for guests who demand the best and seek memory-making majesty.

There’s history in every room, brick, and balustrade, all laid to the exacting design specifications of Sir Joseph Paxton, designer of the world-famous Crystal Palace and Chatsworth House gardens. With the beach in front of you and Scarborough’s Italian Gardens adjacent, you have plenty of outside space to savour. 

The balcony offers up uninterrupted views out to sea. Look through the antique telescope and watch as the boats sail blissfully by. A place to experience the kiss of glass upon glass as you gather to toast the special occasion that perhaps has brought you all to this magical location. Or maybe you are here with friends, intent on enjoying al fresco breakfasts, lunches, or dinners to the backdrop of splashing waves.

Inside, the modern meets the traditional to deliver the exceptional. Original features and period furnishings ensure there’s no compromising quality, no hiding the glorious history.

The rooms are alive with character and resplendent with unique touches that match the location. This is a home that exudes style and invites relaxation. Feet sink into the quality carpet underfoot. Period beds in all five bedrooms guide guests into the serenity of dreamland night after night, while the open plan kitchen and dining area make preparing and enjoying meals a sheer pleasure.

Why not treat yourself to a soothing dip in the spa pool or unwind in one of the four sauna rooms? Keep in trim at the fully equipped gym or pamper yourself in The Aqua Spa lounge at our nearby partner hotel, located a short walk away. A full range of massage and relaxation treatments are available.

Pool, spa & gym

Guests can enjoy complimentary access to all the facilities at the Aqua Health Spa.

Take a dip in the heated pool, relax with the soothing bubbles in the Spa pool and heal your soul with a choice of four saunas.

The Aqua Spa is only 200 meters from the Chalet and includes a fitness gym.

Built in c1860 and designed by Sir Joseph Paxton to house the Spa Manager. Paxton was acclaimed for other designs including Crystal Palace and Chatsworth House Gardens.

Paxton designed Scarborough's Spa which is a short walk from the Chalet. Patrons formerly used toll booths to cross the Spa Bridge with central railings dividing wealthy visitors who paid for the privilege of walking beside the sea view.

The original seaside town attracted millions of tourists who came in search of the 'healing spa minerals'. The spa still exists a short walk from the chalet. In the 19th century, the Grand Hotel was built, then the biggest hotel in Europe. The Spa complex was built in 1858. Between the chalet and the Spa, you can explore the famous Italian gardens. There's a choice of two picturesque beaches, and amazing attractions, including museums, theatres and award-winning restaurants. There's a rich history begging to be explored and happy memories waiting to be made.

About uS

Hi! We're Amy & Emily from Short Stay Accommodation. uSnooz helps provide shelter for the homeless. We were inspired by the film "Pay it forward". The aim was to create a self-funding business where income is reinvested to support those in need.

The idea is simple: When a guest stays for a night, we provide one night's shelter to homeless children and families.

To date, our wonderful guests have trusted us to host thousands of nights stays and in turn, they've enabled us to help the same number of people in the UK and all over the world.
