  • 7 Guest Rooms

  • Comfortable Boutique B&B
A cool, slightly retro yet thoroughly up-to-date B&B by the sea

The owners call The Waves a ‘Coastal Bed and Breakfast’ – not just because they are, er, by the coast, but because they consider themselves to be much more than just a traditional seaside B&B.  And with some justification. Acting on the ever reliable impulse to try to create the sort of place they would like to stay in themselves, The Waves is a cool, cosy and contemporary B&B of the best kind, occupying a lovely old Victorian house just a couple of minutes from the clifftop and a short walk from the beach and main part of Scarborough – England's original seaside resort. There are seven rooms in all, six en-suite doubles (a couple of which could accommodate a family) and one single, all beautifully and thoughtfully furnished throughout and very homely, with interesting books to browse, tea- and coffee-making facilities, TVs and powerful showers; some have cast-iron beds. Breakfasts free-range and organic, with lots of home-baked items and plenty of choice – from the full-on ‘Yorkshire Breakfast’ to veggie and vegan options and lighter, sweeter alternatives. There's a funky retro-styled guest lounge, with a classic jukebox, vinyl LPs and board games to play while enjoying homemade cookies, and last but definitely not least the owners are friendly, engaging hosts who are a mine of information not only on their beloved Scarborough but also the beautiful surrounding area and North York Moors. Long may they reign.



Open all year.


Double rooms with breakfast from £87 a night.
