A mini supermarket is just around the corner on Columbus Ravine – perfect for stocking up on groceries, household goods and alcohol..

Scarborough’s famous oriental-themed attraction – voted one of the UK’s best parks – is virtually on your doorstep. Enjoy the streams and waterfalls, boat rides, cafes, Open Air Theatre and miniature naval warfare battles. There’s also a putting green, the North Bay Miniature Railway and  And don’t forget to take a few nibbles for the squirrels, ducks and geese.

There’s a good sized Tesco Express within a couple of minutes’ drive of The Lantern at 17-19 Castle Rd, next door to Domino’s pizza. It’s open from 7am to 10pm seven days a week.

The North Riding Brew Pub is just up the hill, between the cinema and bowling club at 161 North Marine Rd. It’s a real ale pub with its own micro brewery, serving a good range of cask ales and bottled craft beers. Indigo Alley, also on North Marine Rd, is another good real ale pub.

If you’re arriving by train, Scarborough station is just a 10-minute walk from the Steeple & Belfry – or you can catch a cab right outside and be here in a couple of minutes.

Catch a cab right outside the station and you’ll be at the property in around five minutes. We wouldn’t recommend walking; it’s probably too far with luggage!

It’s an easy walk into the town centre, or if you’d rather take the car, a three-minute drive. Brunswick Shopping Centre, in the heart of the town, is an indoor complex of over 30 shops, including Debenhams, Next, Top Shop and Argos. The main shopping street is Westborough, and you’ll find independent boutiques and shops on Bar Street, Huntriss Row and St Nicholas Street.

The Coffee Bean Cafe

Just 30 seconds’ walk away, this popular café serves good value, home-cooked food in a traditional setting. Also offers outdoor seating for the summer.

North Bay Fisheries

Arguably Scarborough’s best fish & chips – and certainly the most popular, with queues out the door throughout the summer. There are picnic tables outside – but as it’s only around the corner from the property, the food will still be piping hot when you take it back.

Scarborough’s finest restaurant is just around the corner on Victoria Park Ave. Jeremy Hollingsworth worked with Marco Pierre White for six years and was head chef at Quo Vadis when it gained a Michelin star – so you know the food in this beautifully restored butcher’s shop is something special.
Take a five-minute walk up Columbus Ravine and you’ll discover this cosy, family-run Turkish meze bar and restaurant, which consistently enjoys rave reviews.
Watermark Café
If the sun is shining, there’s no better place to be than sitting outside this recently-renovated café on the Marine Drive. Offers a good selection of gluten free options and is home to the Driftwood Live Music Club.
